'''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.

* Averted in one comic where ComicBook/{{X 23}} attacks ComicBook/{{Wolverine}}, severs major arteries, and uses 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.

* This happens at the climax of ''Film/{{Sanjuro}}'' in part due to Production designer Yoshiro Muraki adding ''30 pounds of extra pressure'' to make things more dramatic. When Sanjuro slashed his opponent, the rival samurai was supposed to spurt blood right afterwards. However the hose for the machine blew a compressor and led to a slight delay and a massive blood spurt lasting for a second. When Muraki nervously looked towards director Akira Kurosawa, Kurosawa nodded his approval (partially due to the difficulty of filming it twice).

''VideoGame/{{Bloodborne}}'': The blood is supernatural (getting hurt causes your blood to heal your body at the cost of draining out, your health bar determines how much blood you can still lose before you die from blood loss), so expect your enemies to bleed and bleed and bleed...

* ''VideoGame/LetItDie'': Killing human enemies (unless you used heat-based executions) tends to cause an excess of blood to spontaneously eject from their pores. Crush their skulls with a hammer? Blood explosion. Shoot them with a nail gun? Blood explosion. Poison them and watch them die? Blood explosion. Stomp their heads in? Struggles, followed by blood explosion. Chop their hands off? Blood splatters out of their arms, followed by yet another blood explosion.

** There's also the Paladin skill "Sacrifice", which gives a noticeable increase of damage and attack rating (i.e. how likely you are to hit) at the cost of some of your health, which is represented in-game by the character bleeding about a gallon of blood. Of course, with a decent set-up, one can keep using this skill indefinitely and clear out entire areas full of monsters with no ill effect.
** Enemy corpses explode if they either spawn with the Fire Enchanted modifier, or are subjected to one of several skills after their death (the most famous being [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Corpse Explosion]]. Since there is only one animation for it, smaller enemies look like they have more blood than their bodies could physically contain, even if they'd been hollowed out and filled with but blood and LudicrousGibs.

* ''WebOriginal/AirRideAdventures'' has Orange Kirby with his infinite blood supply, making him immortal if you think you can kill him slowly with wounds on him.
