Darkstalkers, known in Japan and Asia as Vampire (ヴァンパイア Vanpaia) is a series of 2D fighting games developed and released by Capcom. It is set in pastiche Gothic horror universe and features a highly stylized, cartoonish graphic style. The series' characters are based on either various kinds of monsters or their hunters.

Darkstalkers introduced many of the concepts used in later Capcom fighting games, including its first use of 16-bit color animation sprites and gameplay mechanics later employed in the Street Fighter Alpha and Marvel vs. Capcom series. Some individual characters (usually Morrigan and often Felicia) appeared in the later Capcom games, as well as in a few crossover games by other companies.

Besides video games, the Darkstalkers media franchise also includes a cartoon TV series, an anime miniseries, a comic book series, and several manga, guide and art books.
