* 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/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.

* The RulesOfAnime [[DiscussedTrope talk about this]], among other reality defying feats in anime. It's called "The Law of Hemoglobin Capacity," and goes something like this: "The human body contains twelve gallons of blood, sometimes more, under [[HighPressureBlood high pressure]]."

*** ''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.

* 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.

Turn around after you have finished them off, and you can find a ''magnificent'' smear of blood coating the wall behind you.
