** [[spoiler: And if she can get her blood in a Vandenreich/Quincy, they literally become a corpse under her control. [[ShockAndAwe Candice]] is [[GenreSavvy aware of this]] and prevents Giselle from doing so when [[TheMedic she]] heals [[AnArmAndALeg her amputated arm.]] The same cannot be said for [[FateWorseThanDeath poor]] [[MadBomber Bambietta]].]]

* In ''XenaWarriorPrincess'', the evil god Dahok requires the loss of "blood innocence" to bring forth his evil offspring, so his followers trick Gabrielle into committing murder. In this case, it's the loss of life that fuels Dahok's power, but Gabrielle's hands are also covered in blood.

* The girls in ''{{Charmed}}'' occasionally use blood in their magic. They used their own blood to summon [[spoiler: their ancestor Melinda Warren]], and some vanquishing potions only work when they include blood from the demon being vanquished (though sometimes other parts work, such as the [[spoiler: dragon's scale]], so it's not specifically blood).

* ConanTheBarbarian once battled a witch who used a particularly nasty curse triggered by blood. Only a single drop of spilled blood was necessary to cause her victims to age rapidly and die within seconds, leaving behind a withered corpse. The only protection against the curse were magic talismans owned by three brothers who were the witch's enemies.

Added DiffLines:

* Rune magic is dangerous to use in ''TabletopGame/WeirdWarsWorldWarTwo'', causing backlashes which can cause the rune mage to die or be permanently brain-damaged. The ability of rune magic to turn people into thralls is useful here, as they can give the mage power (they don't track power points) and even absorb backlashes. This is going to kill the thralls, though due to the Final Solution they have plenty of people to enthrall and no rodents' posteriors to issue, as the magic is evil and only ever used by the Nazis. The process is usually referred to as blood magic and therefore it is more common to call the mages blood mages.

Added DiffLines:

* One issue of the ''[[TabletopGame/{{Rifts}} Rifter]]'' featured a school of blood magic. The mages were covered in cuts from using their own blood. They could take others' blood, but it had to be fresh enough, so there was a spell to render a vessel full of blood capable of preserving its contents. Other spells ranged from a simple, distracting [[Literature/TheTellTaleHeart heartbeat]] sound effect, through ''causing someones blood to eat their tissues from inside them'', to creating a blood golem.

* In ''Literature/ShamanBlues'', blood is the carrier of magic, so sacrifices are made to obtain the power hidden within it.

Added DiffLines:

* Early in ''Literature/TheRedTent'', it's mentioned that Rachel's first menstrual blood was collected and used to fertilize the crops, on the belief that [[MenstrualMenace menstrual blood]] [[VirginPower from a virgin]] makes food crops grow bigger and stronger. Interestingly, there ''is'' some truth to this, in that blood is rich in nitrogen, which does make it a good fertilizer, as any organic gardener who has ever used blood meal can tell you. ''However'' it does ''not'' have to be menstrual blood, and it does ''not'' have to be from a virgin (male or female). And it doesn't even have to be ''human'' blood. (The aforementioned blood meal, for example, is a byproduct of meat-processing.)
