*** ''Vampire'' still follows reality in one aspect, in that a human can only lose three blood points (about half a gallon) with no mechanical ill effects; any more, and medical attention is required to survive. [[VampireTheMasqueradeBloodlines The video game]], on the other hand, does away with this, and [[AcceptableBreaksFromReality humans will survive without issue as long as they aren't drained completely]].

** Vampires tend to vomit up geysers of blood when killed, and then promptly melt into [[ChunkySalsaRule puddles of bloody gore]]. May or may not be justified by their... ''unique'' [[ArtMajorBiology biology]], however.

* In ''Manhwa/{{Priest}}'', Ivan Isaacs loses absurd amounts of blood during battle. He may be undead, but he's still losing more blood (in liquid volume) than his body could ever conceivably carry.
* ''Manhwa/TheBreaker'' seems to do this from time to time.

* Subverted in the first TPB of ''{{ComicBook/Fables}}'': Rose Red's apartment is found literally covered in her blood. Bigby the sheriff performs an experiment to see how much blood would be necessary to cover the room, and discovers it's over the amount of blood needed in humans to survive. In other words, she's dead...except [[spoiler:she actually faked her death, with the help of her boyfriend: they took out a pint of blood at a time for a few months, stored it in the freezer, and when they had enough, used it to give the impression she'd been murdered.]]
* Averted in one comic where ComicBook/{{X 23}} attacked {{Wolverine}}, severed major arteries, and used dirt to stop them from closing long enough for him to bleed out sufficiently to pass out from blood loss. Of course most of the time Wolverine laughs at the idea that anything less than skeletonization could stop him. And even that's not a sure thing.
* The Bleeding Monk from ''ComicBook/{{Harbinger}}'' is...a monk who bleeds. A lot, and constantly. So much so that you can pretty much find him by looking for the red river and then heading upstream.

* The shot of Dio's body spurting blood after he's defeated in ''WebVideo/JojosBizarreAdventureAbridged'' is noticeably drawn out. Causing blood to continue shooting out of him like a fountain for over ten seconds. Lampshaded by Jotaro.

* Invoked in the Innistrad storyline in MagicTheGathering. On Innistrad there exists a [[EvilWeapon cursed blade]] called the Bloodletter. This items is particularly coveted by the vampire tribes on the plane, because wound inflicted on a person by the blade will bleed infinitely, even after death. It doesn't actually kill the person, it just seems to make their body produce an infinite amount of blood on a wound that will never heal. On vampires, it seems to cause an inverted effect whereupon the cut vampire will be drained of all their blood and wither into a empty bag of dried skin.

* In ''Videogame/{{Half-Life 2}}'', there are points where you might get pinned against a wall (or any static/physics object, for that matter) and get repeatedly shot by opponents. Turn around after you have finished them off, and you can find a ''magnificent'' smear of blood coating the wall behind you.

Added DiffLines:

** In ''Film/GodzillaVsHedorah'', Hedorah's blood is highly toxic and corrosive, and the only part of his body which his blood can actually injure are his eyes. When Godzilla [[EyeScream punches Hedorah in the right eye]] the large amount of blood released means that he has to shut his eye to prevent it from being damaged. He also shuts his eye over Godzilla's hand, burning his flesh right down to the bone. Godzilla also bleeds after losing an eye of his own to some of Hedorah's acid.

** In ''Film/GodzillaVsMechagodzilla'', Godzilla sprays HighPressureBlood everywhere after getting shot in the neck by Mechagodzilla's finger missiles.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/{{Galerians}}'' deals mainly in blunt-force trauma and is pretty staid about blood 'n guts overall...until the player triggers the LimitBreak [[YourHeadAsplode head exploding mode]] lifted ''straight'' out of ''Film/{{Scanners}}''. Any opponent with a vascular system will turn out its contents in an impressive fountain the moment protagonist draws near.

* ''[[VideoGame/FirstEncounterAssaultRecon FEAR]]'', in the first game there are several locations (including a large multi-level elevator lobby) which are literally ''drenched'' in blood, far more than could be explained by the admittedly large number of corpses lying around.
** Then again, all that is left of the people are skeletons. So it's more like their entire bodies were liquefied and then sprayed out all over the place.

* In the ''Anime/HaloLegends'' short ''The Duel'' (which focuses on the [[ProudWarriorRace Elites/Sangheili]]), protagonist Fal 'Chavamee duels his much larger clansman Haka. It ends with a MutualKill, with Fal's chest exploding into a ''waterfall'' of purple blood after being stabbed by Haka's {{BFS}}.



[[folder:Literature]]
* In ''Literature/HaloTheFlood'', an Elite is sniped in the head by a Marine with an anti-material rifle. The book lovingly describes a fountain spewing from where his head was for a good ten seconds before toppling over.

* In the first ''VideoGame/{{Halo}}'', on the first level, if you kill Captain Keyes or any of the people operating on the bridge just for the hell of it, Cortana will [[VideogameCrueltyPunishment seal the bridge and call in invicible marines to kill you]]. The marines are invincible, but still bleed when shot or pistol whipped. This can lead to situations where there's buckets of blood on the ground from ''one'' guy, and if you let up on your attacks for a second, he'll be shooting and cussing like you didn't do anything.
** Hell, this goes for anyone in the game. Shoot up any dead body, and blood will squirt out, but you can make a lake of blood and still have plenty left.
** In ''[[Franchise/{{Halo}} Halo: Legends]]'', a series of 7 animes of varying styles based off of the Halo mythology, there is one titled 'The Duel.' The main character, an [[ProudWarriorRace Elite/Sangheili]] named 'Fal,' goes into a duel with a much larger Sangheili, named Haka, because Fal believes 'the [[strike: cake]] Great Journey is a lie!' He loses, of course, and is stabbed by Haka's {{BFS}}. Fal's chest then promptly explodes into a ''waterfall'' of purple blood.
** In the novelization of the first game, an Elite is sniped in the head by a Marine with an anti-material rifle. The book lovingly describes a fountain spewing from where his head was for a good ten seconds before toppling over.
