* The AssassinsCreed games as a whole adhere to this trope to a surprising degree, considering the point of the game is bloody assassination. The ketchup-stain variation of the trope is in full effect--sometimes when you get hit, you bleed for a few seconds before the stain disappears! You can stab, slash, and even break bones complete with crunchy sound effects, but bleeding is almost always minimal. When you kill animals for their hides, there's a GoryDiscretionShot when you skin them--and that's probably the goriest part of the game, since you're able to see red bones and rib cages afterward.

* The stabbing scene in ''[[Videogame/FireEmblemTellius Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance]]'' -- "Is this… all there is? No challenge? No resistance?" No blood?? All ''Franchise/FireEmblem'' games do this, despite the massive melees between characters who almost all use edged weapons. Early games could accredit this to technical limitations. The later ones, however, were probably primarily to keep the rating down and maintain the tone of the game, which is not realistic at all in the first place. Subverted in ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe Fuuin No Tsurugi]]'' - [[spoiler: Hector]]'s portrait is shown with blood after [[spoiler: his fight with Narshen and Brenya]].

* As with the games, no one honestly gets injured in the ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' anime or any other adaptations like ''Manga/PokemonAdventures'' or ''Manga/PokemonDiamondAndPearlAdventure''. It could be {{justified}} with the actual Pokemon in that they're stronger than humans and battles don't use lethal force. The humans on the other hand still only get scratches when they're attacked. There have only been three or four times in the anime where blood is shown.

* ''TitanQuest'' has you slay monsters all over ancient Greece, Egypt and China, but none of them so much as spill a drop of blood. (And neither do you when you get hit.) Even if you swing two swords and use techniques that most closely approximate a blender, all that happens is that they fall over. As the game is ''{{Diablo}}''-style, this is definitely something they ''could'' have implemented.

* When [[Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast Gaston stabs the Beast]], there is no blood on his knife, although blood does appear on the Beast's shirt shortly afterward.
* In Disney's ''Disney/TheLionKing'', Mufasa's dead body appears to be in perfect condition… even though he fell a considerable height from a cliff, and then got trampled by a herd of wildebeest; at most he appears to be just a bit beat up and his whiskers are bent. There is some blood in the film - when Scar claws into Mufasa's paws - but it's only noticeable if you're watching the film in really good quality.

** The hyenas eating a zebra leg before "Be Prepared" is portrayed completely free of blood and mostly off-screen. Even the leg is cleanly cut, though the insides are red as expected (though not bloody).

* In addition to there being no blood whatsoever in the early PlayStation titles of ''VideoGame/MedalOfHonor'', sometimes if you killed an enemy with a rocket from a Bazooka or Panzerfaust, he might even do a backflip mid-air and land on his face.

Added DiffLines:

* ''{{Film/Rampage}}'': Though not completely bloodless, the injuries Bill inflicts result in much less blood than is realistic.

* Enforced in ''VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys'' and [[VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys2 the sequel]]. Even in the former's GameOver screen, [[EyeScream which depict the poor hero's eyes popping out of a Freddy costume]], is clean of blood. Averted in ''VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys3'': [[spoiler:the Murderer was horrifically maimed by the Springtrap costume, with blood gushing out of every orfice of the costume when it killed him. And that's to say nothing of [[{{Gorn}} what's inside the costume now]]...]]

* Reworkings of R-rated action franchises to PG-13 movies result in this. Cases in point: ''Live Free or Film/DieHard'' (only John [=McClane=] bleeds in the wide cut) and ''Film/TerminatorSalvation'' (since a Terminator is covered in living tissue, damaging him [[http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_VhYEmBMPYKM/SKRU0A4XuHI/AAAAAAAAALM/slY0_O3uE9Q/s400/TerminatorTruck.jpg is]] [[http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/terminator/images/7/7a/Terminator2_1.gif not]] [[http://images4.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20080313215658/terminator/images/thumb/a/ac/Terminator3-09.jpg/400px-Terminator3-09.jpg pretty]]; the fourth really [[http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/terminator/images/4/48/Marcus_damage.jpg tones it down]]).
