Lead by the notoriously preppy Mike "Vampir" McKowski, this clique of Vamp kids loves fangs, drinking clamato juice, shopping at Hot Topic and of course, lots and lots of attention. They like to hang out in 'dark places' around the school and dress mostly in black because it 'matches the way their souls feel', dye their hair every color of the rainbow and happen to be very spiritual, per se. The Vampire Kids were temporarily defeated when their lair at Hot Topic was burned down but since their leader's triumphant return they have become one of South Park's biggest cliques, participating in assemblies, bullying videos, and a Black Friday smack-down. Other Vamp Kids include Bloodrayne, Larry, Allison Mertz, Ryan Ellis, Annie Barlett Rebecca Miller, Phillip Russ, Tommy Petros, formerly Sarah Collins, and an older African-American Twilight fan.
Just don't confuse them with the Goth Kids, or you're in for a one-way trip to Scottsdale. The only thing that can unite these two warring cliques is the threat of 'Emo Kids', and even that is an uneasy alliance.

Though originally slated for a larger role in the final version of the game, appearing in a level with a haunted mansion at a graveyard, which was featured prominently in some trailers for the game. For unknown reasons, it was removed - in the released version, however, they only make a brief cameo as part of Clyde Donovan's Army of Darkness at the end of the game, and the player does not fight them directly nor hear the voices of any individual members.
- The idea for the Vampire Kids first came during production on "Elementary School Musical", which would have ended up with vampires being the new fad instead of musicals, in a parody of Twilight. Matt and Trey liked the idea so much they made the next episode all about it, in "The Ungroundable", and went with a different ending for the previous episode.
- Although clearly inspired by the Twilight film series and it's fans, no direct verbal reference is made to the films in any of their appearances, though the Gangsta Vamp does wear a Twilight T-shirt.
