* NikolaiDante's invitation to a gathering of the Cadre Infernale led to him meeting the High Priestess of the order, [[Literature/{{Carmilla}} Camilla]] [[ShoutOut Le Fanu]], bathing in what Nikolai at first thought was red wine. She alludes to the rejuvenating effects of Blood Baths being discovered by Bathory but insists that, unlike Bathory, she gets her blood from young women who are ''willing'' to donate a few pints in exchange for a tax exemption. However, it turns out that jobless women who can't pay taxes are [[KillThePoor bled for all they got]].

* The human royal couple from ''{{Drowtales}}'' hunted Elves for this purpose in order to gain immortality. Whether it actually worked is not stated, but given how different fae and human biology are it most likely didn't. Their castle, Chactice, is even named after the modern name for the castle where Elizabeth Bathory lived, Cachtice Castle.

* {{Zigzagged|Trope}} with the MonsterHigh toys. As they are fashion dolls, one can buy accessory play sets related to beautification that are owned by specific characters. The vampire character gets a high backed, clawfooted tub; however, she is a literal VegetarianVampire and, therefore, bathes in protein and vitamin supplements, rather than blood.
