[[folder:Real Life]] * A number of Islamic Scholars accused SaddamHussein of dabbling in this trope when he commissioned his infamous [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blood_Quran Blood Qur'an]]. That said, [[EveryoneHasStandards even those who didn't believe in magic were disgusted of the act]]. ** Saddam's own rationale for commissioning the Blood Qur'an was as a means to thank Allah for protecting his regime over the decades which really ''might'' count as an attempt at blood magic, if you are feeling generous.

* In ''Literature/MaledictionTrilogy'' witches can use blood to perform more powerful, dark and dangerous spells. It is also the only kind of magic that works on troll - provided they use troll blood to power the spell.

* TamoraPierce makes use of this both in ''Literature/CircleOfMagic'' and the ''Literature/TortallUniverse''. However, it is made abundantly clear that the only approved use of blood magic is when the mage uses his or her ''own'' blood.

* In ''Franchise/{{Mistborn}}'', Hemalurgy is a magical art that involves killing a victim and transferring certain of their qualities to a recipient (the precise process involves both getting stuck with a metal spike, often a large one). Who the victim is normally doesn't matter, but if you want to transfer magical powers, you do need to find someone who has them to begin with. The precise composition of the spike and where it is stuck in the recipient's body determine precisely what qualities are transferred. ** Strictly speaking, the position of the spike on the victim's body is also significant when stealing powers - it's just that [[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice through the heart]] works the best, and is generally lethal. * In the ''Literature/WaxAndWayne'' series (sequel series to ''Mistborn''), all magic has been disseminated to the common populace--except Hemalurgy, which Harmony and his Faceless Immortals keep very secret. In ''Literature/ShadowsOfSelf'', Wax ends up with Marsh's personal journal, which details Marsh's careful study of Hemalurgy following Harmony's restructuring of the world.

* An inadvertent version in ''VideoGame/BrutalLegend''. When Eddie is badly injured due to the carelessness of the idiot band he works for, his blood drips onto his belt buckle and summons Ormagoden, kicking off the events of the game.

* In ''Fanfic/LokiAgentOfDoomgard'' a MadOracle's advice is to use Loki's own blood for tracking spells. As they're searching for alternate versions of themself this proves surprisingly effective.

* Taken to the extreme again by Vladimir the Crimson Reaper, a [[{{Whatevermancy}} "hemomancer"]] in ''VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends''. Not only are all his abilities blood-related (including draining the blood out of his opponents and into him and briefly turning into a near-invulnerable pool of blood) but he fights with an orb of blood which hovers in his hands that he shoots at his opponents.

His skins also seem to fancy him as the closest equivalent the game has to a [[OurVampiresAreDifferent vampire]].

* In ''Fanfic/PerfectionIsOverrated'', Toki's Child, Cronos, has the ability to spawn black dragon minions from its own blood. She sends them back in time in order to alter [[MaiHime Mai, Natsuki and Nao's]] pasts to prevent them from ever coming to Fuuka Academy, and after that plan is thwarted, sends them against the three when she faces them in combat.

* In Literature/TheBible, the Passover where the Angel of Death came to kill the firstborn children of Egypt, and the Jews painted their doors with lamb blood so the angel would know not to kill ''those'' firstborn children. ** Also, the 'Blood of Christ'.

* In Literature/TheBible, the Jews annually sacrificed sheep and doves as "pure" sacrifices to God in exchange for atonement for their sins. This is used as {{foreshadowing}} for Jesus's sacrifice during the crucifixion, using himself as the ultimate pure sacrifice to nullify everyone's sins permanently, which is why Christians and Jews don't sacrifice animals anymore. ** Also, the Passover where the Angel of Death came to kill the firstborn children of Egypt, and the Jews and Egyptians painted their doors with lamb blood so the angel would know not to kill ''those'' firstborn children. ** Also, the 'Blood of Christ'.children.
