* When Superman-Prime captures Mr. Mxyzptlk and tortures the hell out of him, at one point he vomits blood. Prime comments on how disgusting it is.
* JhonenVasquez once made fun of this trope in his deliberately horrible comic, ''The Bad Art Collection.'' A character is wounded and blood comes from the mouth. Paraphrased: "Oh, no! I did a blood burp! That means I'm dying!"

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Usually restricted to {{justified}} cases where characters have suffered respiratory injuries, such as Ser Hugh, Lommy, and Polliver who are all stabbed in the throat and Jeor Mormont who is stabbing the back, presumably finding a lung. Not to mention the characters who die from blades entering or exiting via the mouth itself. Victims of poisoning tend to play it straight, however.

* In the novel ''Film/GoneWithTheWind'', Scarlett is relieved when the injured Ashley does ''not'' have this, because she frequently saw this while she was a nurse during the Civil War and came to know it as a harbinger of death.

* In KeithRoberts' short story "Monkey and Pru and Sal", the title characters are mentally-retarded (and possibly deformed) human scavengers in a [[AfterTheEnd post-nuclear holocaust]] landscape. When Monkey goes off foraging alone he gets too close to a contaminated city, and a short time after his return he doubles up in agony and starts coughing up blood. It's not the radiation sickness that kills him, though: it's Pru and Sal, who no longer recognize his contorted, bloody face and beat him to death. On balance, this is probably more merciful.

* ''Anime/{{Madlax}}'' ascends to NighInvulnerability towards the end of the series (through being just that {{badass}}, no kidding) but does Blood From the Mouth to demonstrate to the BigBad that inside, she is still a human being. [[FauxSymbolism It's symbolic, really.]]

However, not all RealLife bloody mouths are immediately dangerous. Damage to the gums in a fistfight, biting your tongue, or a particularly copious nosebleed can just as easily replicate the appearance. When it's not a death trope, blood around the mouth simply indicates the character has just taken a worse beating than usual. Our hero gets smacked around some and ends up with a bloody lip - not a big deal unless there's staggering involved. They might even spit out the blood defiantly, along with a tooth, just to showcase their resolve. Was that hit fatal? If the character wipes the blood away and it ''does not return'', it's cosmetic Blood From the Mouth. Expect to hear MyNameIsInigoMontoya any second now.

* UsefulNotes/TheodoreRoosevelt used the absence of this trope to determine that he didn't need surgery to remove an assassin's bullet, understandably concerned given that [[UsefulNotes/JamesGarfield his predecessor]] had ''died'' from such a surgery.
