Dracula attacks Ash Williams (Army of Darkness Volume 1 #9)

Vampires are a species of undead beings that feed on blood to survive.

Vampires were first introduced into the Evil Dead mythology in the first volume of Dynamite's Army of Darkness comics.


Very little is known about the actual history of Vampires, though the demon known as Hzxyrioth once claimed that he was the creator of the first Vampire in his native reality.

Powers & Abilities

  • Bat Transformation: Many Vampires of Earth-818793 demonstrated the ability to transform into bats.
  • Flight: Vampires were able to grow wings and fly while in their non-bat form.
  • Immortality: Vampires can live for several centuries, with their bodies only physically age every couple years.
  • Psychic Contact: The Dracula of Earth-818793 once mentioned that he had a psychic connection with his "brides", though the full extent of this ability is unknown.
  • Deadite Possession Immunity: Frankenstein's Monster informed Ash Williams that one of the few things that Deadites fear are Vampires, as Vampires could not become Deadites themselves.


  • Religious Artifacts & Symbols: Crosses (no matter what material it was created with) and the Spike of The Crucifix are two known objects with religious connections that could harm Vampires.
  • Thresholds: Vampires could not enter a room without permission from it's current occupants.
  • Sacred Ground: Churches or Monasteries could not be entered by Vampires, as it caused their bodies to burst into flame. It was stepping on sacred ground that killed the Dracula of Earth-818793.
  • Silver: Objects made of silver burned the flesh of Vampires.
  • Wooden Spike Though The Heart: One of the most commonly known weaknesses of Vampires.
  • Kandarian Dagger: The simulacrum clone of Ash Williams killed a version of Dracula native to his reality with the dagger.

  • It's unclear if Vampires actually exist in the "main" Evil Dead universe, but they were mentioned in the Ash vs Evil Dead episode Delusion. In the episode, Ash states that Vampires are the monsters with a weakness for sunlight, not Deadites.
