** 1.) You can only donate blood once every eight weeks--and Jude probably would've died around the fourth or fifth donation.
** 2.) If he only had three pints, realistically, he wouldn't have been able to actually move.
** 3.) While it ultimately depends on how big someone is, on average, the human body only has about nine to eleven pints of blood, maybe twelve at the most. In Canada (where the show is set) Canadian Blood Services takes about one pint max, so donating 17 times would involve losing ''50 to 70% more blood than would exist in his body!''

* Done ''literally'' in one chapter of ''Manga/CodenameSailorV'': Minako first did a normal whole blood donation (in Japan either 200 or 400cc depending on body mass) at least two years underage, and then, the very same day, as part of the infiltration to look for [[MonsterOfTheWeek Chuu Chuu]] she donated again... With the doctor, being Chuu Chuu in disguise, taking ''800cc''. [[TheJuggernaut Minako drank eight tomato juice cans before climbing on top of the hospital where he had his base and annihilating him]].

* The bug that Hydia stomps on in ''MyLittlePonyTheMovie1986'' literally explodes into a huge puddle of blood that no creature of this size could possibly hold in its body. Of course, that even ignores the fact that [[ArtisticLicenseBiology insects don't have the same kind of blood that vertebrates do]].

* The ''VideoGame/{{Splatterhouse}}'' series, but it's recent reboot/remake takes the proverbial cake. If the name alone wasn't hint enough, you'll know what you're in for when just punching a single enemy spews enough blood make even ''Mortal Kombat'' seem tame.

'''Before invoking this trope, keep in mind that five liters is still more than enough to make a HUGE mess. What looks like too much blood to a person who doesn't know what a gallon and a half of liquid looks like when spilled may in fact be entirely realistic.'''[[note]]If you live in the USA, get a gallon and a half of milk and fling it around your kitchen. See? Sorry, cleanup is on you.[[/note]]

* In an episode of ''Series/{{Dexter}}'', Dexter has to investigate a crime scene in which at least 50 gallons of blood are splashed around a hotel room. (It's made even more confusing by the absence of any bodies.) The normally unflappable Dexter is made violently queasy by the scene and practically passes out. It turns out it's justified because [[spoiler:the Ice Truck Killer had exsanguinated his previous victims and saved their blood to create the scene]].

* Absurdly overused in the manga ''Manga/SamuraiDeeperKyo''. More then half the manga is a long continuous series of death matches for the main charachters who recieve about a couple dozen serious wounds each battle and usually one or two fatal ones. The is no regeneration factor ever mentioned, and there is only one real healer, and even she can only close open woulds, not internal which almost all the cast get at some point.

* A DefiedTrope in two separate occasions in CSILosAngeles. In one episode, Sam and G notice an unusually large puddle of blood from a victim, and figure out he was an MMA fighter transfusing himself with excess blood to give himself an advantage. In another, the inside of a car is smeared (though not drenched) in blood, and the characters still note "nobody loses this much blood and survives". [[spoiler:They're right, but there were also two sources.]]

* ''Series/TheRedGreenShow'': Possum Lodge once competed in a blood-donating competition with Caribou Lodge. Harold, with a little convincing from Red, donated enough to beat out the total donations of Caribou Lodge by himself. He was barely able to walk and talk after that, but was fine by the next episode.



* For the sake of free doughnuts, Jude would donate blood an unprecedented ''seventeen times'' in a episode of ''[[WesternAnimation/{{Sixteen}} 6teen]]''--with the help of a few [[PaperThinDisguise costume changes and a lame accent or two]].



* Combined with HilarityEnsues and ArtisticLicenseBiology, in an episode of ''[[WesternAnimation/{{Sixteen}} 6teen]]'', Jude Lizowski donated blood ''17 times'' in one day, but is thankfully helped and okay by the end of the episode. In reality, Jude wouldn't be to donate blood 17 times in such a short period of time. for a few reasons:

** The game also takes place in a dreamworld (of a sort) so physiology isn't exactly required to be realistic.
