* Unicorns in the ''Literature/HarryPotter'' [[{{Potterverse}} universe]] have mercury-like silver blood, which will heal but {{curse}} you if you drink it. Also, dragons have green blood ... [[PlotHole although not always]].

* Maxima from Webcomic/GrrlPower while she isn't technically an alien, probably isn't human any more, bleeds blue, but blushes red. The author mentions originally planing to make her blush green but that just made her look ill.

* In ''FanFic/ActuallyImDead'', after dying and subsequently being brought back by the [[ArtifactOfDoom Alicorn Amulet]], Trixie's blood appears to have turned black. [[spoiler: It is later revealed that concentrated ''dark magic'' has replaced her bodily floods.]]

* ZigZaggingTrope in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins''. Several people, including people who have first hand experience against them, refer to darkspawn blood as being "black as sin"; however, ''all'' blood in the game is animated as a bright red. At one point, the PC can explain that while the idea of the blood being black is a common misconception, it has various inhuman properties; most notably and well known is how toxic it is, with exposure into an open wound being almost universally fatal to anyone but a Grey Warden, and likely related to this is the less obvious fact that it ''burns'' the skin on contact.
* In the ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'' DLC "The Descent", it emerges that [[spoiler: lyrium itself]] is the distinctly alien, multi-purpose "blood" of [[spoiler: massive subterranean creatures called Titans. Amusingly, magic involving *normal* blood is shunned and reviled by most of society. One wonders what the reaction will be to this news spreading.]]

** Parodied in [[https://www.offthemark.com/cartoons/somewhere%20on%20planet%20Vulcan a comic]] by Mark Parisi (''Off the Mark'', August 4th 1996), which shows a movie theater on planet Vulcan. The father reassures his son that what he sees on the screen is not real blood, just guacamole.

** Vulcans in green copper-based blood, not unlike Earth insects[[note]]In reality, Haemocyanin (the oxygen-carrying pigment that is the copper-blood equivalent of iron-based haemoglobin) does not carry oxygen very efficiently, which is why molluscs like squids and octopi tend to operate on a 'dart and rest' principle[[/note]]. To a limited extent, ''Franchise/StarTrek'' did ShownTheirWork in that Leonard Nimoy's make-up did tend towards a more greenish cast than everyone else's. It did take several tries, however, to get this to work the way they wanted when combined with the lighting and the other make-up, which occasionally had hilarious results--especially in early episodes of the show.
