** In "Kiss Kiss, Bang Bangalore", noted ''Series/MacGyver'' fans Patty and Selma kidnap ''[=MacGyver=] star Richard Dean Anderson [[DisproportionateRetribution after he'd dismissed the show as merely "a paycheck"]] [[LoonyFan and liked]] ''Series/StargateSG1'' more. After Anderson escapes, Patty and Selma say "we'll always have what he wrote", pointing to a message for help. Patty asks "What did he write that in?", and Selma answers "Grape juice and tears."

* In chapter 53 of ''Manga/MiraiNikki'' [[spoiler: after the second Yuno is stabbed by the real Yuno, the other Yuno uses her last moments of life to write "Help Me" on the wall in her blood]].

* One of the villains in ''The Court Of The Air'' is fatally impaled during a sword fight in an open snowy field, by a fugitive he knows has been living under a false name. As he's dying, he ''tries'' to pass word of his foe's hidden identity using his own blood to write it down. In this case, the DyingClue aspect of this trope is subverted, because the snow he writes the man's secret down on melts before his body can be found.

** In "The Springfield Files" Homer runs away from an alien screaming "Yahhh!" As we watch from above we see him run through a field spelling out the word "Yahhh!" in cursive (including the exclamation mark, which he dots!) [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XJuZqumRP70]]

* In ''Film/{{Sisters}},'' the dying man crawls to an open window, and writes "HELP" with his bloody finger, one of the few practical examples of writing something in blood in all of filmdom, as someone does actually see him do it-- and there was a possibility at that point that he might not have died if he'd gotten the attention of someone a little more quick-thinking. By the time she figures out which apartment he's in, someone has managed to finish him off, hide the body, and clean up.

* There's a power that Harrowed have in ''{{Deadlands}}'' that lets them create spontaneous writing on any surface. The precise effects vary, but making it look scrawled ever-fresh blood is one of them.

* ''Series/BlakesSeven'': One episode was an "old-fashioned" whodunnit on a spaceship. One member of the crew was found dead with the cryptic message '''54124''' written in blood beside him. Avon reasons that [[spoiler:"When you are dying, it is difficult to be neat", and announces that the guilty party is a suspect whose name is '''SARA'''.]]

* At the beginning of the interactive comic ''Webcomic/DeepRise'' the protagonist wants to write down their dream before they forget, but can't find any writing implements, so the audience suggests carving notes into their arm with their beak. Of course then they need to find a lighter to burn the blood before it metastasizes.

* Subverted in the Creator/AgathaChristie novel ''DeathOnTheNile'': a murdered woman uses her own blood to trace a letter on the wall, presumably the first of her assassin's name. It later turns out that [[spoiler: the killer wrote the letter. In a double-twist on this trope, it was written to implicate one of the people actually directly involved in the murder, in an attempt to make it look like another party was trying to frame her.]]
