* A group from ''{{Naruto}}'' called Akatsuki tries to do this not once, but nine times! They search for the nine Jinchuriki, including protagonists Naruto and Gaara, to extract their inner demons.
* In ''BlueSeed'', it is said that to stop the Aragami, the "Kushinada" (a human literally bred to be a human sacrifice) must be sacrificed. Problem is, this time there are ''two'' twin sisters who qualify as Kushinadas... [[spoiler: and one of them has had a FaceHeelTurn.]]

* In ''VideoGame/KultHereticKingdoms'', the sword Godslayer can be empowered by the blood of people descended from Arkor, its original wielder. Taryn Arkor, who was using the sword to keep himself alive, recharged it via his fellow descendants, splitting them into sacrifice victims and breeders of future sacrifice victims. The protagonist, Alita, grew up in a dungeon as one of the planned sacrifices, but Taryn Arkor was overthrown in a rebellion ''just'' before she was old enough.

* It's revealed partway through ''VideoGame/RadiantHistoria'' that [[spoiler:the ritual to hold off the end of the world requires someone who's died and been brought back to [[HeroicSacrifice willingly give up their soul]] to power it. There are two potential candidates. Too bad one of them is more inclined to [[PutThemAllOutOfMyMisery let the world end]].]]

* In ''Film/BigTroubleInLittleChina'', the BigBad is an EvilSorcerer who is cursed to remain either as a feeble old man who needs a wheelchair to move or a powerful non-corporeal magician. In order to break the curse and make himself a powerful ''corporeal'' magician, he needs a girl with green eyes for a special ritual. When he tells that to the heroes, Creator/KurtRussell's wonders how likely is it that, in all those centuries, he has never found a "broad to fit the bill". The sorcerer admits that there have been others, but they weren't quite right, and the ritual failed to work. However, this time, he manages to find ''two'' green-eyed girls (who happen to be the two heroes' {{Love Interest}}s) and tries to perform the ritual with both of them.

* In ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'', [[BigBad Father]] needs people who not only can open the Gate, but have done it once before and survived: this ends up being [[spoiler:the Elric brothers, Hohenheim, Izumi Curtis, and Roy Mustang]]. Without them, he can't perform his ritual and capture the power of God. They are targeted more because of their skills and experiences than some particular power or bloodline, but finding replacements would be extremely difficult, so it counts.
