* On ''Series/AmericanHorrorStoryFreakshow'', Dandy Mott believes that bathing in people's blood will give him their power. The first onscreen instance of this comes right after he [[spoiler:kills his own mother]], though the fact that [[spoiler:he is covered in blood after killing Andy]] may suggest that he did this then, too.

* A ''ComicBook/JudgeDredd'' strip published in ''Judge Dredd Mega Special 1995'' concerns a pop singer who retained his youth and good looks through TheDarkArts, human sacrifice, and bathing in blood--the literal blood bath being implied to be the most crucial step in the singer's rejuvenation rituals. Strangely enough, 22nd Century technology has made several means of rejuvenation (including some that are legal) readily available to [[MegaCity Mega-City One]] citizens, which makes it a bit odd to see somebody taking this route, instead.

A character, typically evil or sadistic, immersing themselves in a bathtub filled with blood. Frequently, any blood used for this purpose will be a type of AppliedPhlebotinum that is intended to cause some fantastic effect on the bather.

While the ''real'' Countess Bathory has been accused of many unpleasant, cruel things, it's certain that her baths in blood are only the stuff of legends. However, the Blood Bath is very much a key component to be found in any story in which she is featured, and any stories that feature a Blood Bath without Bathory as a character will often allude to her motives for doing this (lifted directly from the legends) and may also mention her by name (or, at least, give a character partaking in this a similar name as a ShoutOut).

A character, typically evil or sadistic, immersing oneself in a bathtub filled with blood. Frequently, any blood used for this purpose will be a type of AppliedPhlebotinum that is intended to cause some fantastic effect on the bather. Usually, the practical problems with this trope are rarely brought up, such as one particular person only containing around five liters of blood, or blood being a ''coagulant'' (in other words, unless some sort of blood thinner is added, a blood bath will just become a sticky, gelatinous mess).
