Giovanni, Lasombra in Multiplayer, Malkavians in the tabletop version, Tremere, and Ventrue have this as one of their Clan Disciplines

In Redemption, the target is required to be of the same or lesser Generation, which would be completely unworkable if Redemption did not also allow vampires to decrease (make more powerful) their Generation. This drawback for Dominate, and advantages for Presence including a wider range of skills, greater values such as number of targets affected, and the trivial ease with which Appearance can be increased (with jewelery), render Dominate inferior to the similar Presence Discipline.
