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).

* Alpha Siegfried of ''Manga/SaintSeiya'' (Anime only) shares his AchillesHeel with his namesake from the ''Literature/{{Nibelungenlied}}''-- he slays a dragon and bathes in its blood, making himself invulnerable, but at that very moment, a tiny leaf falls on his back (coincidentally over his heart), preventing that bit of skin from being touched by the blood, and therefore making that spot the only part of his body that can be dealt a mortal blow.

** Creator/GarthEnnis once wrote a comic where the villain was a drug lord who got people hooked on a drug so he could kill them, fill a pool with their drugged-up blood, and get high by bathing in it.

* 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.
