* Despite only having had a single bucket of blood dumped on her, the titular character of ''Literature/{{Carrie}}'' remained red and dripping as she walked all the way home. Then, due to the type of fake blood used, when she washed it off in the bathtub it inexplicably turned pink.
** And despite sitting around for hours, the blood hadn't coagulated or turned brown in the bucket before being dumped on Carrie's head. (Maybe a preservative of some sort was added?)
** In the novel, it had been transported in buckets of ice, and had frozen in transit, to thaw between placement and deployment.

* The blood on [[spoiler: Coulson's vintage Captain America cards]] in ''Film/TheAvengers2012''...which turns out to be the first clue that Fury didn't find them where he said he did. [[spoiler: They were in Coulson's locker when Loki stabbed him.]] Whether that means Fury just added the fake blood for extra punch or something else has yet to be seen.

* ''Film/{{Deadpool 2016}}'''s original white uniform is still bright red from the blood stains at the laundromat, long after the blood had time to dry up. (It could be considered Fridge Brilliance once you realize that his cells are immortal and never die.)

* ''Series/{{The Wire}}'' falls into this trope, despite being otherwise brutally realistic. Not a drop of blood turns brown, despite the fact that the show frequently shows the murder, the investigation, and how much time has passed in between when the blood should have turned brown.

* Obviously averted here, since unlike most performers, professional wrestlers are usually covered in real blood, often their own. Wrestling/{{CZW}}'s ''Tournament Of Death'' in particular is a great place to see the transition from red to rust in action, [[GarbageWrestling provided you're into that sort of thing.]]

* RealityIsUnrealistic: The Heeresgeschichtliches Museum (Army History Museum) in Vienna houses in a display case the uniform that Archduke Franz Ferdinand was wearing when he was assassinated in Sarajevo in 1914. Complete with bloodstains, which have bleached white over the years. This is because of the light, as the colour red fades over the years due exposure to sunlight.
* Bloodstains are often so similar to rust stains that it's impossible to distinguish them unless a proper chemical analysis is done. There were a lot of cases when they were confused for each other, including one during the original ''Mary Celeste'' trial. The prosecutor insisted that the brownish stains on a saber, found on a ship, were blood, until the judge ordered them to be analyzed, where they were proved to be just rust.

* Often appears in ''[[TabletopGame/{{Warhammer40000}} Warhammer 40,000]]''. For some factions (especially Khorne, the Blood God) it's presumably a magical gift.

* ''DeadSpace3'' is perhaps the most heinous offender. The Sovereign Colonies Galactic Expedition wiped itself out 200 years prior to the events of the game... But there is plenty of splattered blood around the place that's just ''slightly'' darker in color, rather than completely bleached or at least brown. Gets downright ridiculous in the pressurized, properly oxygenated environment of the derelict starships in orbit around Tau Volantis.
** Possibly [[JustifiedTrope justified]] with a bit of FridgeLogic: [[spoiler: Late in the game you find a leaper that's been pinned to a wall, and a note near by that tells you that, even after you shoot them to pieces, the cells in a necromorph don't die, seemingly kept "alive" by the Marker Signal. If it's necromorph blood (and after two hundred years, it would be) then it couldn't degrade.]]
* In ''Franchise/DragonAge'', blood ''never'' seems to dry. Maybe warriors clean their armour off frequently, but one would assume mages in cloth robes/light armour or rogues in light/medium leather armour would have some trouble getting all the stains off.
** [[AWizardDidIt A mage washed them.]]
** Also, you just keep getting [[HighPressureBlood hosed off with more blood]] in every single fight.
** They just need to get enough off so all that's left will just blend in with [[RealIsBrown everything else in the game]].
*** Or this is [[JustifiedTrope the entire reason]] [[FridgeHorror everything is brown]].

* Averted in some instances in ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}''. The town of Minefield is full of decayed corpses. However, as the player searchs for mines they might spot a trail of bright red blood leading to a house, with a [[BloodyHandprint bloody red palm print]] on the door. The fact that this blood is fresh is a clue that the player is [[spoiler: about to be attacked by a sniper.]] Played completely straight in abandoned areas, such as Vault 87.

* True of every bloodstain ever appearing in the ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorney'' series. Or if not all, then at least most. This occasionally causes problems for one character, who can't distinguish between red and white.
** Averted in ''ProfessorLaytonVsPhoenixWrightAceAttorney'', when a stain on a piece of evidence is called "blackish" (and indeed is just very dark) and Phoenix only realises 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...

** The World Eaters, Khorne's dedicated berserkers, have red-and-brass armor, which was blue-and-white pre-Heresy. Naturally, the idea is that they've done so much killing that their armor has been stained by the blood, but the RealLife aversion of this trope refutes it (InUniverse even).
