* ''Film/ResidentEvil''. In the first movie several characters are sliced into pieces in the Red Queen's LaserHallway but there's no blood at all. Possibly {{justified|Trope}} because the laser beams cauterized the wounds, but still… Notice though, the guy who got cubed, they took the focus off of him.

* Bloodless carnage was often used for sight gags during UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAeOfAnimation. Examples include:
** Creator/TexAvery. Several of his gags included outcomes such as TorsoWithAView (''The Chump Champ''), HalfTheManHeUsedToBe (''Daredevil Droopy''), and YourHeadAsplode (''Millionaire Droopy'').
** The Creator/FrizFreleng short ''WesternAnimation/ShowBizBugs'' has one scene where Bugs asks for a volunteer for the classic SawAWomanInHalf illusion. Daffy volunteers without hesitation and proclaims to the audience why Bugs' trick is a sham. The audience applauds anyway. Angered, Daffy jumps up and down, only to realize that, as he's leaping, he sees [[HalfTheManHeUsedToBe he actually WAS cut in half]].

* ''Anime/RevolutionaryGirlUtena'' falls straight into this in the series finale, where a character gets [[InTheBack stabbed in the back]] with a sword, and there is ''zero blood.'' Clean through either a lung or the stomach. Possibly justified by the fact that said character is wearing black, which blood would not readily show up on. However, there is no blood on the sword, nor is the character lying in a puddle of their own blood. There isn't even clothing hole where the sword went through. The only thing to indicate they even got stabbed in the first place is heavy breathing and cringing. Also, for a series that centers around constant sword fights, the swords never hit an opponent during fights, just the other sword or their opponent's [[ClothingDamage clothing]] or [[CloseCallHaircut hair.]]
** Except when Touga gets sliced down the back outside an official Duel--he does not bleed, but later requires extensive bandages and a sling. With other things in the series, it's easy to draw the [[WildMassGuessing conclusion]] that the Duel Arena literally does not allow anyone to bleed or die without losing their rose.

* ''Manga/KatekyoHitmanReborn'' falls severely to this, best shown when Tsuna is sliced in the back from hip to shoulder each direction without a single drop of blood.
** This is only true of the [[{{Bowdlerise}} anime adaption]], whereas in the manga, blood is not only frequent, but so is some pretty graphic stuff [[EyeScream like Mukuro activating his evil eye.]]
** The Reborn anime acually didn't have a problem with showing blood early on during it's adaptation of the Mukuro arc. It's like after this particular arc, the animators found it too gruesome for the kids watching the show so they turned to Bloodless Carnage afterwards. During this arc, Gokudera for example took a few needles to the chest, yet his shirt began turning blood red afterwards from the injury. Looked even MORE painful then ANYTHING the anime dished out afterwards where the only times you ever see blood again is during the Varia arc when Yamamoto gets slashed across the chest in his Ring duel and much later on during the Future arc when Hibari tries to pet his porcupine box weapon, but accidently gets his hand stabbed. Everything else is straightforward Bloodless Carnage.

* Jibanyan's backstory in ''Anime/YokaiWatch'' had him dying by being hit by a truck and dying immediately. Jibanyan was a kitten but somehow his body is completely intact. The only injuries were a clipped ear, and even then no blood appears.

* Despite all the sharp weapons and other implements flying around in ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia'' and its sequel, the one time blood shows up in either game is [[spoiler:in Derris-Kharlan, at the scene of The Judged. Lloyd is invisible to two of the characters in the party, and must prove to them that he is not an illusion. He wounds himself, and his blood, now visible, proves he is there.]] The OVA, on the other hand, is quite violent.
** This tends to be a trend for the ''VideoGame/TalesSeries'' in general. If there's any blood, it typically shows up only in the animated cutscenes, and only in the especially dramatic ones (Such as the deaths of [[spoiler: [[VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss Asch]]]] and [[spoiler: [[VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia Alexei]]]]).

** ''VideoGame/TalesOfBerseria'' averts this trope. Main character Velvet gets splattered with blood quite frequently, and characters who die by impalement or cutting show very large bloodstains where they were hurt.

* The film version of ''Literature/{{Eragon}}'' avoided a PG-13 for having "ample yet ''bloodless'' violence". Despite a major battle scene, many deaths of allies, and an onscreen ''stabbing'', no blood is shown anywhere.

* In ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'' anything except for the droids will fall over dead when killed, no wounds anywhere. This is probably because the droids don't have any blood in them so they can be sliced in two or ripped to pieces.

Even in the cases where an actual bladed weapon is used on flesh-and-blood, expect the struck foe to fall at an angle that conveniently hides the wounds, but even then there isn't even a blood spray.

* No blood is spilled in ''VideoGame/{{Starbound}}''. Monsters and critters just poof on death, and humanoids vanish in a quick teleportation effect. (If a quest-important NPC is killed, the fail message says they probably respawned somewhere safer, so one can assume teleporters and respawners are in use for other people as well as the protagonist.) Even the victims in the prologue don't shed any visible blood. Of course, there are mods to correct this matter.
