Added DiffLines:

* In ''Fanfic/TheSecondTry'', Asuka usually took the brunt of the fights due to her aggressive fighting style, and her red mecha was maimed in nearly every battle: [[spoiler:Zeruel loped Unit-02 head's off, Tabris cut its hands off, the MP-Evas nearly ate her alive again...]]

Added DiffLines:

* In Asuka's first engagement in ''Fanfic/ChildrenOfAnElderGod'', an EldritchAbomination ripped her mecha's hand off. In reaction, she beat it to a bloody pulp, smearing her robot and the battlefield with its blood. Her next battles were similarly bloody.

* The miniseries adaptation of Tony Kushner's ''Theatre/AngelsInAmerica'' puts long-suffering AIDS patient Prior in a red robe when he [[spoiler: goes to Heaven]], with a stylistic nod to ''SchindlersList'' thrown in by having the red robe the only thing in color through that part of the sequence.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Fanfic/ThousandShinji'': Asuka always wears red (and she's capable of transforming into a red-skinned devil). Her battles are the bloodiest of all: either she hacks her adversaries apart, or her adversaries hack her apart.

Added DiffLines:

* Lampshaded in ''{{Film/Deadpool}}'' as our hero is attempting to scrub his blood out of a white hoodie at a laundromat. Blind Al suggests he wear red instead.

* Vita of ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha'' has red hair, a red hat, and a very red dress. Guess who spent most of ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikerS''' last mission bleeding all over the place and had a tendency to get wounded even before that?

* Mal Reynolds of ''Series/{{Firefly}}'' wears mostly earth tones, including brown and red. These clothes are frequently ripped and torn, mostly by bullets and knives. Occasionally, this color scheme is the direct cause of some of Mal's injuries -- like when he wears it into an Alliance-friendly bar on Unification Day and picks a fight. Mal wearing red is played with in the side comic book story ''Film/{{Serenity}}: Those Left Behind.'' In the comic, River comments that she hates the color red on Mal, which is an ironic throwback to the episode "Ariel" in which she cuts Jayne with a butcher knife and then comments that ''he'' looks better in red. River's comment is very likely intended to suggest that Mal does this trope [[GenreSavvy on purpose]] for the reason given in the page quote. River [[FoeYay may]] or [[WithFriendsLikeThese may not]] like Jayne, but definitely didn't like the [[EvilInc Blue Sun]] shirt he was wearing, and slashing him was the best way she came up with to get him and the shirt to go away.

* ''RebelWithoutACause'': Jim wears the iconic red jacket for most of the film, but lends it to Plato shortly before the latter is killed. When Jim's father arrives on the scene, he recognizes the jacket and thinks it's his son who's been shot.
* ''{{Ultraviolet}}'': when the titular character receives a gash on her hand, her colour-changing clothes immediately change to red.

* In ''SchindlersList'', a little girl in a red jacket[[note]]Who really stands out since the rest of the movie is in black and white (except the beginning, and the ending).[[/note]] is seen at the ghetto. Later in the movie, Schindler sees her corpse about to be burned.

* The Eastern Empire from the later ''HeraldsOfValdemar'' books issues dull red uniforms to its army. The joke in that army is that the color was chosen to cut down on cleaning bills post-battle.

* In [[TheKingkillerChronicle The Wise Man's Fear]], [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Adem mercenaries]] prefer to wear bright red. Kvothe guesses this is so their enemies will not see them bleed. In contrast, [[BadassGrandma Shehyn]], an Adem master, wears white, because she [[BadassBoast does not bleed in battle]], and if she ever did, seeing her bleed would be her enemy's rightful reward.

** In [[Film/{{Deadpool}} the movie]], he even says he went with red so it hides any blood.
