* A combat feat to do this menacingly exists in in ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}''. Downing a foe with the Killing Finish feat, provided for use in [[GladiatorGames performance combat,]] results in a demoralizing spray of blood against nearby enemies as you prepare for the next one. The Mythic Champion ability ''Clean Blade'' [[UpToEleven goes a step further,]] and involves taking a free action after a successful critical hit to swipe the blood and gore off your blade directly onto an opponent, sickening opponents and potentially blinding them.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones''. Various BadAss characters are seen doing this, either on a handy cloth or the person they've just killed (Brienne uses her own sleeve in one episode). Strangely averted the first time we see Bronn; he puts a bloody sword back into his scabbard in "The Wolf and the Lion".

* Vergil does this quite a few times with his sword, Yamato, in ''Franchise/DevilMayCry 3''. [[note]]Those paying attention, however, will see that before he sheathes Yamato, he also wipes the blade by running it through the fingers of his left hand which is holding the sheath[[/note]]
