The idea that vampires can turn into a mist plays a bigger part in fiction than in folklore

In vampire fiction, vampires could transform into a mist, but they could not travel very far in this form.

Vampire mist was only occasionally seen in mythology as a logical form for a vampire to leave and return to the grave without disturbing the topsoil. This idea was developed when small holes were found on a grave supposedly leading to the coffin lid.
