* In ''VideoGame/BrothersATaleOfTwoSons'' the brothers come upon a bloody battle site of giants. The battle apparently just happened, because the giants' blood is still flowing into nearby streams, and even makes a waterfall run red. The brothers have to wade through the water to progress and make sounds of disgust as they do so.

* ''Film/{{Psycho}}'', the shower scene ends with bloodied water going down the drain. It was made possible with chocolate syrup. An inversion of this is also why the movie is in BlackAndWhite, since Hitchcock felt that "pink wasn't scary".

* "Literature/{{Krakumal}}": As Ragnar recalls his viking career, the image of blood mixing with water is evoked repeatedly. In stanza #3 "wound-sweat [i.e., blood] swelled the ocean", stanza #4 tells a "river was all reddened / with hot running wound-splash", and stanza #19 relates that "Irish blood was blended / with brine, at the slaughter."

* The swimming pool scene in the video to Music/PinkFloyd's "Music/TheWall".
* Music/FlorenceAndTheMachine's "Rabbit Heart" refers to this in the context of a HumanSacrifice.
* In the music video of {{Manowar}}'s "Gloves of Metal" this happens when the guy who is hit by Joe de Majo's morning star drops dead into a brook.
* Music/{{Love}}'s "A House Is Not a Motel" from ''Music/ForeverChanges'':
-->''And the water's turned to blood, and if''\\
''You don't think so, go turn on your tub.''

[[folder:Myths & Religion]]
* Literature/TheBible has the Nile turning to blood. While the blood wasn't from anyone dying, several movie versions have the blood fanning out from one source (usually Moses), giving off this effect as the transformation ensues.

[[folder:Theater]]
* Theatre/{{Macbeth}}'s parallel of his wife's "OutDamnedSpot" discusses the trope, though of course he's talking metaphorically.
-->''Will all great Neptune's ocean [[OutDamnedSpot wash this blood]]\\
Clean from my hand? No; this my hand will rather\\
The multitudinous seas incarnadine,\\
Making the green one red.''

Of course, if this happens in the open sea, the probability that someone will mention [[ThreateningShark sharks]], and their ability to smell [[MysteriousAnimalSenses a single red blood cell from 6 million light years away]], rapidly approaches 1[[note]]Although experiments proved that sharks don't go for human blood. Fortunate, isn't it?[[/note]].
