* In ''DetectiveComics'' #833 Zatanna is shot in the throat by the Joker and dunked into a tank filling with water, effectively keeping her from reciting her incantations backwards. When Batman escapes his own deathtrap to free her in #835, he finds her throat completely healed. Upon inspection, Bats discovered she'd used her own blood to write "HEAL ME" backwards on the inside of the tank's lid.

* ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'' has the Blood Mage class type, which uses CastFromHitPoints types of magic (and not necessarily the caster's hit points). A Tevinter Imperium blood mage even uses his own [[BadBoss ''henchmen'']] as sacrifices, usually by making them explode with the words "A blood sacrifice! For power!"

*** Grey Wardens themselves are created by drinking a special cocktail of darkspawn blood and lyrium, which makes them immune to the [[TheCorruption darkspawn taint]] [[spoiler:for a few decades, anyway]]. It also gives them the ability to sense the darkspawn [[spoiler: though the darkspawn can sense them as well]]. The Warden's Keep DLC also confirms that Grey Wardens can gain other abilities through their tainted blood.

to:

* This is why Vampires in ''TabletopGame/{{Shadowrun}}'' attack people and drink their blood -- ''Shadowrun'' vampires actually drain [[LifeForce Essence]] to survive, but Essence Drain only works when the victim and predator are connected on a deep, emotional level. It just so happens that for most vampires, the easiest emotion to connect with your victim is "fear", and drinking someone's blood while they're watching helps tremendously.

Added DiffLines:

** Notably, western vampires have a derangement called Sanguinary Animism that makes them ''think'' they do the same thing as the Kuei-Jin. Sufferers hear the voices of people they've drunk from in their heads, and believe that if they ever drink a mortal to death they also consume their soul. This essentially causes the vampire to suffer from SplitPersonality (and not the fun kind) when they drink blood.

* In RumikoTakahashi's ''Manga/MermaidSaga'', mermaid flesh can, if you're ([[WhoWantsToLiveForever un]])lucky enough to survive eating it without becoming a [[TheCorruption Lost Soul]], turn you immortal. But in the "Mermaid Forest" story, all that Sawa has is a flask of mermaid blood to heal [[IncurableCoughOfDeath her sister's illness]]. It made Towa immortal, but deformed her arm like a Lost Soul's, and now she regularly replaces it with arms cut from the fresh corpses of young women.

* In ''[[Comicbook/TheSandman A Game Of You]]'', menstrual blood is used to power a spell to send the characters to the land of the dead and come back alive ([[spoiler:mostly]]). In ''The Time Of Your Life'', the same spell is powered from blood from Foxglove's hand.
* Another parody happens in ''LenoreTheCuteLittleDeadGirl'', when she pricks her finger and spills a drop of blood on a doll. It turns out to be a vampire that was cursed to be an inanimate plaything, and her blood broke the curse. Unfortunately, he realizes he's still in a doll's body because the curse didn't break properly; she'd been embalmed.
* ''Comicbook/{{Runaways}}'': "When blood is shed, let the Staff of One emerge."
