* Being avatars of peace and harmony, the kirin in ''TheTwelveKingdoms'' aren't just afraid of blood (becoming faint or woozy just from the sight or smell of it,) they're physically weakened by it. Even suffering a tiny cut will incapacitate one from contact with its own blood.

In the end, when Eggsy spears him from behind with Gazelle's prosthetic, he vomits at the sight of his own blood.]]

They're more mystery games that play similarly to visual novels than full blown visual novels, so moving them to that category.
* ''Franchise/AceAttorney'': ** Dick Gumshoe can't stand the sight of blood, which is especially odd considering he's a homicide detective. This is lampshaded a few times by characters. ** ''Dual Destinies'' introduces Norma [=DePlume=], who is also afraid of blood. Apparently Norma was once attacked during an interview and was badly injured. It helps [[spoiler:what she thought was]] a violent orca attack which resulted in a large amount of blood leave a strong impression on her.

* In the comic book of ComicBook/TheMask, one character who goes after the Mask is a mob sniper who can't stand the site of blood. He manages to shoot The Mask (which does nothing because of his powers), but the Mask still makes a big show of the injury, only to pull his hands away causing a drop of blood to drip out of the tiny bullet wound. This causes the hitman to faint.

* Inverted with Richard Mayhew in {{Literature/Neverwhere}}. He shies instinctively from horror movie gore, earning a reputation as overly sensitive, but when he's presented with ''actual'' blood from real injuries he is perfectly calm and pragmatic, and has no problem dealing with it.

* Papa Lazarou from ''TheLeagueOfGentlemen'' is so freaked at one point, ''he runs out of his own show.'' Granted, it's probably ''nosebleeds'' which he's probably never encountered before, rather than the actual sight of blood.

* The Spanish series ''Doctor Mateo'' starts with the eponymous world-famous surgeon suddenly becoming afraid of blood. * Henry from ''{{Sanctuary}}'' has a weird relationship with blood. When several wounded refugees are brought in, he is asked to help bandage them but is reassigned when he says, "You know about me and blood." But when he is asked how he'd feel if he came across a dead animal and he'd smell its blood, [[EyesNeverLie his pupils dilate]]--even though he answers "Sad".

* On ''AllMyChildren'', Natalie was kidnapped by her sister Janet, who imprisoned her in a well, assumed her identity, and took over her life.
