* Most of the aliens in ''Videogame/XCOMEnemyUnknown'' seem to have yellow blood, which you can see when it [[CameraAbuse sprays on the screen]] during the [[AlienAutopsy autopsies]].

This carries over to [=ADVENT=] troops in ''VideoGame/XCOM2'', which is the first sign [[spoiler: they're not entirely human]].

** Cherubs also qualify, with the color depending on which personality is dominant. Calliope has lime-colored blood (same name as an exterminated troll caste, but a different color), while her [[TwoBeingsOneBody "brother"]] Caliborn has the same red as humans do.

Calliope has lime-colored blood (same name as an exterminated troll caste, but a different color), while her [[TwoBeingsOneBody "brother"]] Caliborn has the same red as humans do. In fact, Calliope implies that an entire species having exactly the same color blood is very unusual across Paradox Space... apparently humans are the oddballs in this story.

* In ''Webcomic/{{Heartcore}}'', salamander demons such as Carval have navy-blue blood that is highly volatile and ideal for making bombs. Common wisdom dictates that it's a bad idea to make salamander demons bleed. [[spoiler:Carval's previous incarnation, Volaster, exemplified this when he bled enough to turn himself into an UnholyNuke.]]

* Karl Ruprect Kroenen from ''Film/{{Hellboy}}'' has sand instead of blood. He's not an alien, but a [[StupidJetpackHitler Nazi cyborg]] [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot zombie]] who's been through more than {{Rasputin|ianDeath}}. It's simply the years of abuse and being in a state of undeath that caused his blood to dry up. Also in the ''Film/{{Hellboy}}'' movies (and animated movies, but not the comics), Abe Sapien has blue blood. In ''Film/HellboyII'', the elven royalty has greyish yellow blood.

* Older editions of ''WarhammerFantasy'' allowed Chaos Champions and mutants to gain this -- as {{Lovecraftian Superpower}}s. Some of the types of blood they could have included molten metal, electrically-charged slime, and a symbiotic BlobMonster that reacts to anyone poking holes in it's host skin by sticking CombatTentacles out through the wounds to try and kill them. ** The most detailed list of recent editions can be found in the Tome of Corruption for ''WarhammerFantasyRoleplay'', which details ''twenty different kinds'' of blood replacement.

** The Orks, who are in fact [[PlantAliens genetically-engineered carnivorous space-fungi]], have green skin but red blood (and mouths). It wasn't always this way and earlier sourcebooks for the game described Ork blood as green, but eventually red gore was decided on. This was explained in ''White Dwarf'' magazine with an in-universe biologist's report: while Orks' dense green skin is a chlorophyll- and spore-producing layer, the rest of their body is relatively normal meat, and they have a normal (if supercharged) food-based metabolism to support it. On the same page, the game developers gave the real reason: green injuries on green-skinned aliens were hard to notice, and made the models look like "they've had an accident eating a gooseberry squishy".
