* ''Literature/TheJenkinsverse'': In chapter 26 of The Deathworlders, Adam Arés becomes one of these when his DynamicEntry into a combat zone involves killing six hostiles in a handful of seconds, one of whom he crushes by the simple expedient of landing on them at speed. The sight (and smell) of him afterwards repulses and dismays his ex-girlfriend Ava.

** There was also Angron's brother and ally [[Literature/NightLords Konrad Kurze and his Night Lords]], who sometimes {{Invoke}} this trope to make themselves more terrifying. While Night Lords combat doctrine does seem to focus on melee slightly more than ranged fighting, they're not quite the assault force the World Eaters are, focusing on guerrilla warfare and terror tactics. As such, while the are known for "painting" their armour with blood in intimidating patterns, they more often attach severed body parts and flayed skin. It also helps that their armor [[RuleOfCool inexplicably]] has ''electricity arcing across it''.

* This is part of the backstory of one of TheEmpire's named unit regiments in [[{{TabletopGame/Warhammer}} Warhammer Fantasy]]. The Carroburg Greatswords held their ground during a civil war between two provinces, taking horrendous losses in the process. At the end of the battle, their side won, but the surviving members of the unit were drenched in blood from all the fighting, staining their white shirts red. [[LawOfChromaticSuperiority The look stuck]], and they even painted their armor black [[BlackKnight for added effect]].
* From ''TabletopGame/Warhammer40000'' comes [[TheBerserker the World Eaters legion]] and their Primarch, Angron. During Angron's days amongst humanity, he was well known for personally leading his legion in vicious frontal assaults which obsessively emphasized melee combat; this practice lead to his public image fulfilling this trope as one of his more infamous attributes, earning him the epithet [[TheRedBaron "the Red Angel"]]. With his white and blue-trim armor, he was often told he should just repaint it red, and his legion's colors did eventually change to red and brass. Some in the 40k verse say they never actually repainted their armor, but just stopped cleaning the blood off of it.

it.[[note]]In one novel, a dead Space Marine's corpse was seen by the protagonists in the rain in a pool of blood, and the characters were confused upon seeing the blue-and-white color scheme, as there were no marines using that color in the campaign. Then one character pushes the dead marine over, revealing the ''[[WhamShot World Eater's Symbol on the shoulder pad]]''.[[/note]]

* Similarly, ''{{VideoGame/Bloodborne}}'' also deals with blood splatter as an important tool to survive. Since this game is basically a spiritual sequel to the Demon's Souls series, but with blood as the main theme, it's obvious that covering yourself in the blood of your enemies is usually a good thing. Player characters drink vials of blood potions instead of estus flasks, blood is used as currency for items and upgrades, and characters can now lifesteal by splattering themselves with blood in a combo move. The downside is that absorbing too much infected blood will slowly turn your character into a monster, which can only be cured with rare vials of processed blood potion.

A Blood-Splattered Warrior is exactly that, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin a combatant drenched in blood]]. This is often used to show how insanely {{Badass}} the character is due to the implication that they either [[{{Determinator}} took multiple wounds yet stood their ground]], or [[OneManArmy were drenched in their opponents' blood]]. [[{{Badass}} Or both]].
