* 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]].

* MercedesLackey loves this concept, and blood mages are frequently villains in her books. Combines with Type O, since the shedding of blood is incidental -- the suffering and trauma of the victim is the real source of power.
** There are also good people who use blood magic--they only use their own blood. Most notably, the [[HeraldsOfValdemar Shin'a'in]], whose patron goddess will sometimes require someone (usually a shaman) to sacrifice themselves to prove the people's need.

* In ''Webcomic/PublicHumiliation'', Pooka blood is needed to power magic runes used for all sorts of things in modern society. Originally, it was freely given by Pooka to their allies, but when they were tired, and tried to say "no more", they found that their "allies" had become just another foe. [[spoiler: Needless to say, when a Pooka hero did show up, things got messy.]]

** "Reavers", a particularly dangerous type of warrior that become stronger through suffering and exhibit certain magical powers, are created by drinking the blood of dragons. There are entire cults that spring up around high dragons for this reason.

** "Reavers", a particularly dangerous type of warrior that become stronger through suffering and exhibit certain magical powers, are created by drinking the blood of dragons. There are entire cults that spring up around high dragons for this reason. Some members of the [[HornedHumanoid Qunari race]] have been known to develop Reaver abilities purely through training. The [[DraconicHumanoid implications of this]] have not yet been fully explored.
