* In the climax of ''{{ICO}}'', we see the only blood in the game when [[spoiler:Ico's horns snap off]]. The sudden physical sign of violence after a game full of whacking nothing but intangible Smokemen is like a punch to the gut.

* In ''Creator/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.

* ''WhateleyUniverse'' example: [[EldritchAbomination Carmilla]] and [[TheFairFolk Fey]] made a blood pact that was so powerful it gave them some of the other's traits. Carmilla now has Fey's body (including PointyEars) and hair, and Fey got some of Carmilla's mental capacity.

* {{Spider-Man}} villain ComicBook/{{Carnage}} has an alien symbiote mixed into his bloodstream that allows him to shape his blood and use it as a weapon. This is sometimes played for a more horrific effect, particularly in WarrenEllis and KyleHotz's BodyHorror laden graphic novel "Mindbomb"

* In ''{{Touhou}}'', [[TheOjou Remilia]] [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Scarlet]] has power over blood, and possibly so does her [[StrongerSibling little sister]] [[MadWomanInTheAttic Flandre.]] Apparently she can do [[SwissArmyWeapon many things]] with it. As [[KleptomaniacHero Marisa]] [[BlatantLies so eloquently]] put it: "[[RunningGag Blood is amazing!]]"

* In ''Literature/TheWitchlands'', Bloodwitches can distinguish people by the smell of their blood and track them down by it even across open sea. They can also control blood in other people's veins, letting them, for example, freeze them in place or stop their hearts.

* In the Breeniverse series ''{{lonelygirl15}}'' and ''WebVideo/KateModern'', infusions of Trait Positive blood can extend the human lifespan considerably. In ''WebVideo/LG15TheResistance'', [[spoiler:Maggie]]'s blood grants total immortality.
* Fey of the ''WhateleyUniverse'' used the blood of Hekate to throw a ''major'' Sidhe curse on her: a three-fold return of all the evil Hekate had done, which (given just what we've seen) will be horrific.

* The Literature/{{Elenium}} plays with type AB. In this case blood isn't so much magical as it is innately capable of ''restraining'' magic. The living stone Bhelliom is supposedly controllable by two rings, each of which contains pieces of the original Bhelliom stained red with blood. Later, it's revealed that blood restrains Bhelliom for a very prosaic reason: [[spoiler:Bhelliom cannot stand the touch of iron, and human blood has iron in it]].
