Vlad Dracula, Lord of the Vampires.

Vampires are beings originating from Southeastern European folklore and mythology, afflicted with a supernatural virus that drives them to drink blood from other beings, often using fangs to inflict wounds from which to obtain it. Vampires are often (but not exclusively) portrayed as undead and possessing immortality, heightened senses, and supernatural powers of strength, speed, and mind control.

The appearance of vampires in the various TMNT universes have been a semi-common occurrence over the years.
