|Anime Debut||Ghost Sweeper Mikami: The Great Paradise Battle!! (1994)|
Nosferatu (ノスフェラトゥ) is a character from the film Ghost Sweeper Mikami: Gokuraku Daisukusen!!. He is the most powerful vampire in the world, greatly surpassing Count Dracula and Count Bloodeau and being show to be able to stay on sunlight and wear crosses. Besides drinking blood, he can also extract the energy of humans, animals and ghosts he bite, and turn them into zombies that obey him. Like vampires, someone bitten by a zombie will become a zombie loyal to Nosferatu. Nosferatu is actually Nobunaga Oda (明智光秀 Oda Nobunaga), but Father Karasu says that Nobunaga was a normal human. Karasu believes that the real Nobunaga was killed by Nosferatu sometime during or before the Sieges of Nagashima, and Nosferatu took over his form, becoming an evil daimyo. Mitsuhide Akechi discovered that Nobunaga was a vampire and tried to kill him, but despite being defeated by being stabbed in the heart with the Spirit Stone from Mitsuhide's spear, Nosferatu says that he will revive in the future after Mitsuhide's death.
Centuries later, Ranmaru Mori manages to revive Nosferatu by dropping Reiko Mikami's blood on him, and Nosferatu easily defeats Mikami, Karasu and Pete. Nosferatu began creating a castle in the city and turning the population into zombies, and just relaxed on his castle eating, dancing and drinking the blood of Doctor Chaos, Emi and Meiko, which are captured by Ranmaru and increase Nosferatu's power. After Mikami kills Ranmaru, he uses his remaining strength to give his power to Nosferatu, further increasing his power. Nosferatu plans to capture Mikami to increase his strength even further, which will make him invincible. Mikami has a tough battle against Nosferatu, and when she believes that she succeeded to kill him by stabbing his heart with Mitsuhide's spear, he transforms into a more powerful form and breaks the spear. During the battle, Mikami discover that Nosferatu has two hearts, which is the reason he wasn't killed by Mitsuhide. With the help of Yokoshima and Mitsuhide's spirit, Mikami manages to kill him with her Sweeper Staff. To make sure Nosferatu will not revive, Mitsuhide risks himself by personally taking Nosferatu to hell. Everything returns to normal after Nosferatu's death.
