* Near the end of ''Oh What ALovely War'' the sound of a gunshot is accompanied by a splash of red... which turns out to be an out-of-focus poppy in the foreground. No blood is ever shown in the film.

* In ''VideoGame/NoMoreHeroes'', the enemies die in what could only be described as a fountain of digitized ash. Although quite an aesthetic vision, this is actually a case BlackBlood, the original Japanese game displaying actual bloodbaths.

** In the Japanese ''[[VideoGame/MegamanZero Rockman Zero]]'' series, robots give out a spray of red oil when killed with the saber. This is censored for some bizarre reason in the American ''VideoGame/MegamanZero'' localizations.
* Possibly done in ''VideoGame/MarioParty''s Horror Land board, where there's a red bloodstain type puddle, which is just about shown coming from a huge overturned ketchup bottle that's been held by a gravestone.

* In ''VideoGame/SuperDanganronpa2'', the scene of [[spoiler:Mechamaru]] bleeds oil after being murdered. Similar to how [[BlackBlood blood is colored pink]], the oil is colored light blue.

* In ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts'', when fighting the [[Disney/{{Hercules}} Hydra]], the heads being chopped off lead to leaking smoke instead of blood. In [[Disney/{{Hercules}} the movie]] and the Japanese version of the game there's slime instead.
** The series kind of seems to like using darkness as symbolic blood, actually. The [[spoiler:remade version of the Deep Dive scene]] in [[KingdomHeartsThreeFiveEightDaysOverTwo 358/2 Days]] has a moment where the dark smoke from the Heartless he just slew flies in front of his face like he was in some kind of samurai movie. The best example, though, is when Terra [[spoiler:shot Braig in the face]] in ''Birth by Sleep'' - [[spoiler:the reddish smoke fountaining from his missing eye and dark splotch where his scar will be]] might not necessarily ''be'' blood, but they sure do look like it, and the game never really bothers to make sure you realize it isn't.

* The robot/cyborg characters from ''MortalKombat'' would have their 'blood' coloured black as if it were oil being knocked out from the uppercut. Some other nonhumans ended up with green blood.

* In ''VideoGame/DirgeOfCerberus: VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'', Shalua is killed by Azul, in a scene in which she holds a door open with her mechanical arm so that the others can escape. When the arm is destroyed, some medical liquid starts to flow from under the door. And as you may guess, blood-like.



* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII2'' uses a dark purplish/black energy to instead of blood when [[spoiler:Noel, Serah and later Caius]] are stabbed/impaled; it represents the Chaos bestowed on every human's heart by Etro.

* When the Lemons blow up Rod "Torque" Redline in ''[[WesternAnimation/{{Cars}} Cars 2]]'', we actually see a puddle of oil trickle under the Lemons' tires once Redline is finally dead.

* One ''{{Bionicle}}'' commercial showed Kalmah's tentacle being cut off, and a dark liquid flowing into the water. We know that characters in the Matoran Universe don't bleed, so it was either some other fluid (ink?), or completely non-canon. [[EverythingsEvenWorseWithSharks Pridak]] also has some suspicious red markings around his mouth...

* ''That70sShow'' Kelso is in the shower and Laurie catches him using her shampoo (which happens to be red). This causes him to spill it, at which point we see it going down the drain as she hits him is a stabbing motion ([[Film/{{Psycho}} parodying a scene from that movie no one remembers...]])
