* One chapter of the ''[[ComicBook/TwoThousandAD 2000 AD]]'' strip "A Love Like Blood" features the vampire king Karkossa lounging in what appears to be a blood ''jacuzzi'' while also being entertained by female vampires.

* A ''ComicBook/JudgeDredd'' strip published in the "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.

* The new ''[[NewWorldOfDarkness World Of Darkness]]'' supplement "Immortals" has [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin The Blood Bathers]], who [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment gain a sort of immortality by bathing in blood]]. Their blood bathing ritual is guaranteed to place any characters who partake in it at [[ObviouslyEvil the very low end]] of the [[KarmaMeter Karma Dial]].
* ''VampireTheRequiem'' has a bloodline of vampires called the Galloi who bathe in blood to make themselves more beautiful. They're not related to Bathory, though; they take their unique Discipline from the worship of Cybele, which often involved initiates being bathed in the blood of a bull to symbolize cleansing (and...[[GroinAttack other things]]). Additionally, both Macellarius and Noctoku tend to feast on blood in this manner; the Noctoku can absorb blood through their skin.

* The first episode of HBO's ''Series/{{Rome}}'' features Atia taking a nude shower in the blood cascading down from a slaughtered bull as part of a religious ritual in an unspecified Great Mother cult. The ritual was to provide spiritual protection for [[UsefulNotes/{{Augustus}} her son]] on a journey to meet [[Creator/GaiusJuliusCaesar his uncle]] in Gaul. Such a ritual actually existed but it was associated with Mithraism not Goddess cults and became popular well after Atia's time.
