Hi, this is my fifth post for this meme. These are the others:

May Monster Madness - May 11th -17th

Visit me between 11th and 17th May for interesting posts about monsters.

Today is all about…

‘The Best Ever Vampires (and their hunters).’

Obviously, for me to go on and on about my favourites, means you get pissed because they’re not yours, and it could get messy. So instead on my subjective ramblings – i.e.: strictly my opinion, I’d like to know yours. Then I’ll compile them and do a post on the two chart-toppers!

So, I’ve added two polls. Hurrah!

(Should have done this for my first post, but as I found the meme the day before it started, I didn’t have to time to think our the week ahead and I’ve kind of gone by the seat of my pants). So I need you all toΒ click on your Favourite Vampires, and your Favourite Vampire Hunter polls, so I can gather up those votes and write a post about the chart toppers! I’ll be writing that post in the next few days, and it will be a bonus post for this meme, 21st May: Β Yey!

Anywhoo… These polls are made up of the best of both camps, our there (according to research, so don’t shoot the messenger!), but like I said, this is all about you guys.

Who is YOUR number 1 ?

I imagine most of you will say Buffy tops the slayers, but which fanged devil will you chose as best vampire ever? If I’ve missed your favourite (how very dare I?) by all means add them to the list in the comments. There are so many, I had to scale it down to those who figured highest on my scale, but also on Google search. πŸ™‚

Right, now go vote!

Don’t forget to elaborate your choices/or add them if I’ve missed them, in your comment πŸ™‚

What do you think?

  1. That was a tough poll! For the best Vampire for me it was between Lestat & Spike but I chose Lestat! And the best vampire hunter was another tough one, I was between Blade & The Frog Brothers but I chose The Frog Brothers!

    Happy Monster Blogging!

    • I have to confess to choosing The Frog Brothers, too. πŸ™‚ They weren’t the best in many ways, but they entertained the @Β£$ outta me every time I watch ’em! πŸ™‚ And vampire – Well… thats a secret. πŸ™‚

  2. Lestat! Hands down, Lestat! Though if Mircea Basarab from Karen Chance’s Cassandra Palmer series had been in there if might have been a close call! πŸ˜‰
    I was tempted to go Buffy, but Anita Blake is perhaps the most kick ass Vampire Hunter I’ve come across in fiction, so she wins!
    Great post today, Shah!

    Happy Hopping! =D

  3. This was a great poll, and it was so interesting to see what others picked. It seems everyone has a different fav vampire, but most everyone loves Buffy! πŸ™‚

  5. I voted for Whedon’s Buffy ‘verse, but if I’d been given the opportunity I might have voted for Nick Knight in “Forever Knight.” (A 90’s tv show where Nick is a vampire & Toronto police detective…)
    Or Chelsea Quinn Yarbro’s vampire in books Saint Germain, starts with Hotel Transylvania, or anywhere. He’s based on a real guy.
    Or Tanya Huff’s Henry Fitzroy from Blood Price and the Smoke books.

    • So sorry your faves weren’t up there. Like I said, it’s difficult to add every vampire character ever written, especially if they don’t show up in research of best vampires. That is not to say they are lacking in any way, just that they’re less popular (when talking about numbers of fans, not calibre!). Glad you found at least one to vote for though. X

  7. The first one was tricky, I have so many favorite vampires! I chose Selene from Underworld. We need more interesting kick ass female vampires. The second one wasn’t even a contest πŸ™‚
