* ''NoMoreHeroes'' uses this to the extreme: often, blood will spurn out wildly and cover anything in a 100-yard radius. No to mention, its equivalent of EverythingFades is dead bodies vanishing in a puff of blood -- apparently, any non-major character who dies simply explodes into a smoky cloud of blood.

* In ''Manga/DeadTube'' gruesome murders are common place and all the victims tend to bleed a lot, some could be fooled into thinking someone dying like that in real life could result in that much blood, however even some mild beatings result in fountains of blood as if everyone is made of bloody piņatas.

* An odd one goes out to ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion''. Angels get injured? The streets run red with blood. In the remake, ''RebuildOfEvangelion'', this is even more extreme, as Angels who are defeated explode into a massive cloud of blood and gore. There is a ocean of blood in the middle of Tokyo-3 after the first fight with Sachiel. Shooting Ramiel ends up in the walls being covered in a wave of platelets. It makes sense, seeing as they're hundreds of feet tall, but my God, you could supply the Red Cross endlessly with what one Angel bleeds out in a fight. The blood is enhanced in Rebuild, and there's even rainbows forming in it. Sweet.

* In the "Unlucky Charm" sidequest in ''Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning'' a thief named Edwin Hoswig is stabbed and left for dead by his partner. If you talk to Hoswig later on in the quest, he spends the entire conversation gushing blood from his neck in ludicrously large and long spurts which in real life would've left him dead before he could finish his first few sentences. Another gratuitous use of blood is several of the animations which take place when you kill an enemy while [[LimitBreak Fateshifting]].

* ''VisualNovel/HigurashiNoNakuKoroNi'', despite being almost as bloody as ''Manga/ElfenLied'' on many occasions, actually manages to avoid this. Blood does fly around, but it's spatters from the force of impact (killing is almost always done by bludgeoning; when the weapon is a knife or other bladed object, it's repeated forceful stabbing).

* The 1961 film adaptation of ''La Venganza de Don Mendo / Don Mendo's Revenge'' (a very popular Spanish play) is full of deliberate StylisticSuck. Every stab wound, [[EverybodyDies of which there are many]], produces a powerful and ridiculously thin jet of blood as the character slowly, slowly, ''slowly'' bleeds to death. At one point one corpse-to-be falls across another, and the first fountain [[BloodyHilarious grows taller]].

* The first modern ''NinjaGaiden'' title featured simple head decapitations; the sequel ramped it up to BloodierAndGorier with limb and complete body dismemberments. The last in the trilogy does away with decaps entirely, replacing it with this trope instead.

* Used in ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam: The08thMSTeam'' when Norris Packard stabs a guntank through the cockpit. Blood splatters all the way up to his Mobile Suit's head.

* MetalSlug 3 managed to make this into an attack. When you're zombified, you can cough up blood at such high pressure that it instantly kills anything it touches.

* Every character in ''FistOfTheNorthStar'' (especially minor villains). The show is probably one of the most graphic, violent anime in all of history, and even the most minor of cuts causes a blood spew of several dozen feet. Of course, when the main character possesses the ability to make anyone he feels like literally explode with a couple well-placed punches, this is generally overlooked. The manga is even more violent...

* Nearly every character in ''RurouniKenshin'' is a walking blood balloon just waiting to be poked with a sword--it didn't seem so much about [[OverdrawnAtTheBloodBank volume]] as it was about [[PinkMist pressure and, uh, droplet distribution]] (half the pages of the manga look like they've had ink sprayed on them with a squirt-bottle). * ''NinjaScroll'' has this trope in its purest form in the last act, albeit using the same scene of brutally slashed ninjas over and over. * ''SoukouNoStrain'' has fountains of blood. * ''SaintSeiya'' is pretty infamous for this. The fights where one of the contendors (if not both) doesn't lose at least half of his blood are almost ''rare''.

* ''MahouSenseiNegima'' usually averts this, which making it much more significant when it does occur. So far it's only happened twice. It happened during a BattleInTheCenterOfTheMind to show the pain that Negi was experiencing. The one that occurred in reality has [[spoiler:Negi vomiting several gallons of blood after getting his internal organs more-or-less pulverized by Jack Rakan in the final match of the tournament.]]

* ''AyashiNoCeres'', an anime misinterpreted by many as a ''romance'' anime. Enjoy seeing [[spoiler:Wei lose blood after losing his eye]], kids. * In ''{{Claymore}}'', which is basically Berserk with girls wielding big swords, one attack from an Awakened One and you will gush blood. Not to mention the effects of those swords used by the warriors.

* Expect this at all times during battle scenes in ''{{Hellsing}}'', especially when Alucard starts going for an opponent's throat. * The anime version of ''ViolinistOfHameln'': One early episodes features an old man getting stabbed in the chest and immediately spewing a fountain of the stuff.
