Rift is a Discipline used by the Japanese Gaki vampires. It grants each Gaki some control over the dimensional realm formed of their nightmares and tormented psyche, which is also called their rift. Through use of this Discipline the rift can actually be used as a means of transportation, or to force their hell on others.

Rift was never updated into either Vampire: The Masquerade Revised Edition, Dark Ages: Vampire, or Kindred of the East, and thus may be considered defunct.
