* ''Borgia Power And Incest'' by Milo Manara has Lucrezia do this for her first husband (who is CampGay to the point of impotence if no men are involved), via an eggshell filled with blood. A bedsheet is draped over the happy couple so the audience (yes, the audience) can't see the details, and after a few screams of pain on Lucrezia's part and effort on her husband's, the bloodstained bedsheet is revealed to all (without any actual intercourse having taken place).

The most common way is faking the "blood on the sheets" by using their own blood or that of an animal's -- the husband will think the marriage was sufficiently consummated. This is common among noble women who don't go to their marriage bed virgins, especially in societies that value ladies' maidenheads. Of course, false "evidence" may be required even if the wife ''was'' a virgin, as [[RealityIsUnrealistic the majority of women do not actually bleed after their first time having intercourse]]. [[YouFailSexEdForever Try telling the writers that, though.]]

A variation is to not actually consummate the marriage at all - render your husband incapable of consummating, then fake the blood and let everyone believe you did it. Yet another is to have your husband in on it, which is often the case for more sympathetic grooms. Subtrope of VirginityFlag.

* In the ''Literature/BookOfExodus'', a woman who ''cannot'' produce "evidence" that she was a virgin on her wedding night on her husband's (or in-laws') demand is to be [[HonorRelatedAbuse stoned to death by the men of her community right on her father's doorstep (or left on her father's doorstep after the fact).]] This is the same punishment she'd face if she'd had an affair ''after'' the wedding: the "engagement" was considered the be partially marriage.. However, if she (or rather, her parents) ''were'' able to produce a bloodied sheet or garment to show her husband/in-laws/neighbors/whoever, then her husband (or whoever made the accusation) was to receive ATasteOfTheLash. (And if it ''was'' the groom that made the accusation in that case, [[AwfulWeddedLife then he was never allowed to divorce her]].)
It should be noted that the Jewish explanation in the Oral law treats showing a bloodied sheet as an expression, and take sinto account other reasons for lack of blood.

* Used as a PetTheDog moment for the antiheroic male lead in a romance novel whose title I've forgotten. He and the female lead had "consummated" some time before and had been forced to marry, but their premarital funtimes aren't public knowledge. Believing that the forced marriage was her plan all along, he is angry enough to refuse to have sex with her on the wedding night. Waking up to find her approaching the bed with a knife, he tackles her, only to have her explain that she was planning this trope. He takes the knife and -- after a moment of fear on her part that he will allow her to be shamed -- cuts himself instead, musing that he left so much blood on the sheets that the servants will pity her for having to deal with his brutality.
