Demitri first appeared in the original Darkstalkers game and has been in some cross-over games in addition to other games in the series. He is reportedly a bisexual vampire, but this is only reported in one place and we haven’t found additional confirmation.
Beginning in Darkstalkers 3, he has a special finishing move called “Midnight Bliss,” which turns male opponents into women (female characters turn into more comedic representations of themselves). The video showing this in action is is below.
