* The TropeNamer is the Book of Revelation in Literature/TheBible. All must accept the Mark of the Beast "in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark". Turns out not to be a good deal:

* Variant: those offered as a sacrifice to the Godhand by Behelit users in ''{{Manga/Berserk}}'' have the Mark of Sacrifice -- three crossed lines -- carved into some place on their body, signifying that they are food for demons. They bleed as the demons near.

* In ''AngelSanctuary'', the kiss of a Satan leaves the mark of said satan behind. It seems to give the Satan power over the victim [[spoiler: as with Noise]], but can also be a sign that someone made a deal with a Satan [[spoiler: Arakune who turns out to be a traitor.]]

** The Russian Mob is supposedly so up on symbolic tattoos that one who knows the what the symbols mean can learn a guy's entire history (birth year and/or date, first "job", affiliations, current rank, specialties, etc) ''just by looking at his arm''.

* ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'': Raven gets some in the "all over the body" variety in season 4, apparently heralding the end of the world.
** More interestingly, when [[spoiler: Slade]] [[LikeABadassOutOfHell comes back]], he's got a glowing sigil in his forehead, to go with his new, fire-based powers and infernal army. When he loses the powers, the sigil disappears as well...

* The demonic taint in Ashitaka's body in ''PrincessMononoke''.
* In ''MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'', when the Book of Darkness awakens [[spoiler: and takes over Hayate]], red lines spread all over her body. These lines disappear once the Book of Darkness is cleansed of its corrupted self-defense program.

* [[Literature/TheBible The biblical]] Mark of the Beast. Durr.
** Ironically, it's often misused because it's so well known, people don't do the research on what it really is, assuming they know how to use it properly. First of all, there's a discussion over whether or not 666 is even the right number. Some sources say the number is actually 616, thanks to ancient writing systems. Others maintain that it is meant to be "6 by 6 by 6", or six cubes, which is 216. Secondly, the important part about the Mark is the ''value'', not the ''symbols''. That is to say, writing "29A" in base 16 would mean the same as writing "666" in base ten, but writing three sixes means nothing.
