While most people know perfectly well what blood in all states of being looks like, the [[MostWritersAreMale people who don't know dominate the media]] and there's a taboo on [[NoPeriodsPeriod writing about]] the reason why more than half of the world's population knows what it looks like, contributing to the acceptance of this trope.

In addition, her eyes go blank and her skin goes pale.]]

* ''VisualNovel/DanganRonpa'' has a variation; while [[BlackBlood all fresh blood is colored bright pink]], though characters still describe it as red, the few instances of dried blood, such as [[spoiler:Classroom 5-C and the second floor of the dorms]] are colored red.

The same applies to the blood on Junk Monokumas in the SpinOff ''VideoGame/AbsoluteDespairGirls''.



* The protagonist of ''Webcomic/EternalKnights'' wears what appears to be bright red war paint while in costume as her superhero alterego, Artemis. This "paint" is actually the blood of her dead lover, Étienne. Who died in ''1014 AD''.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Bioshock|1}}'', not only are all the blood stains bright red -- many of which must have been there at least a year -- they're still wet and shiny!

** Though a subversion does appear in ''[[VideoGame/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneySpiritOfJustice Spirit of Justice]]''; [[spoiler: In Turnabout Revolution, a corpse that's several days old is found in the middle of the trial. There's no time for proper testing, but one blood splatter near the arm is bright red, while the blood around the fatal chest wounds is dark brown. This is a major clue for the player, since it indicates the corpse's clothes were borrowed and used in a more recent murder, which is where the fresh blood came from.]]

* Averted in ''VideoGame/ProfessorLaytonVsPhoenixWrightAceAttorney'', when a stain on a piece of evidence is called "blackish" (and indeed is just very dark) and Phoenix only realizes it's blood when the witness states she scratched her attacker's flesh when fighting with the item in question.



* Example from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime''. The bloodstains on the Shadow Temple's torture equipment look bright and fresh -- although this could just be an apparition, what with it being inside a magic temple and all... Or, to up the ante on the NightmareFuel quotient of that place, it really ''could'' have been fresh... There ''is'' a timeline where Link was killed in his quest. And this ''is'' a magic room dedicated to torture. He could be hallucinating what's left of him from that timeline.

* True of every bloodstain ever appearing in the ''Franchise/AceAttorney'' series. Or if not all, then at least most. This at one point causes problems for one character, who can't distinguish red on white.
