@Shadow Dedede My headcanon is that Marx can bite and suck on other creatures. But only noddys become full vampires. The Noddy Vampire is like Marx but smaller and their hat is one, as their normal hats, but purple with smaller wings. Others would become mind-controlled and have glowing red irises. The infects can only become normal if you kill the original vampire. but Noddys are limited in time unlike other species with unlimited time to save them.
