* ''VideoGame/NinjaGaiden 3'': At the end of the first mission, Ryu is cursed with the Grip of Murder, which forces him to endure all the pain of those killed by his Dragon Sword, and will eventually kill him. It initially manifests as a literal RedRightHand, but as the game progresses, it spreads until, by the final mission, it's covered his entire right arm, part of his face, and [[RedEyesTakeWarning one eye]].

* In ''{{Naruto}}'' Sasuke's Curse Seal acts as this immediately after being applied. When his will or chakra weaken enough, it spread across his skin like a rash, causing additional weakness and pain. It is later upgraded to [[MarkOfTheBeast allow him to draw on its power without the side effects]].
* The curse mark on Alan in {{MAR}}. If it goes all the way up his neck, he becomes a zombie slave.
* In ''[[MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha Nanoha Force]]'', the Blue Wings "tattoo" appears somewhere on the body of a person infected with Eclipse and grows larger as the infection progresses.

* Oga from ''{{Beelzebub}}'' gets a red mark along his arm that shows his connection with Baby Beel. It is a plot point in early episodes that he must live a peaceful life to remove the mark and go back to his old life. [[StatusQuoIsGod It]] [[RunningGag doesn't]] [[BloodKnight take]].

* In ''[[ForgottenRealms Azure Bonds]]'' the eponymous pseudo-tattoo, among other functions, linked Alias to her bosses via their symbols, and there was a reason behind one empty place in their pattern. These vanished one by one when those masters were removed from the scene permanently, and later a mark of the goddess looking after Alias appeared. So when in the third book an old symbol returned...
* Artek "the Knife" Ar'talen in ''[[ForgottenRealms Escape from Undermountain]]'' was given a magical tattoo after he was "[[RecruitingTheCriminal employed]]" via set-up escape by a noble. It mirrored the sun and moon position in the sky and was set to release a killing spell at the pre-set time -- as an incentive to complete his mission and return for removal before the [[IncrediblyLamePun deadline]].
* In ''TheDresdenFiles,'' a [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Red Court vampire]] doesn't fully turn the moment they're infected, but the first time they kill through feeding; they can even use some vampire powers and drink blood to heal and "recharge" without losing their human selves and becoming evil. The Fellowship of St. Giles, a group of these half-vampires, have tattoos that help control their bloodlust. By default, they're invisible, turn black when the half-vampire's using their enhanced abilities and getting hungry, and bright red when those urges are getting out of their control.

* In ''[[VideoGame/SonicStorybookSeries Sonic and the Secret Rings]]'', Sonic is scarred with an arrow of flame. It shrinks with his lifespan; the smaller the flame is, the less time he has to finish [[MacGuffinDeliveryService gathering MacGuffins]]. Right before the final boss, the camera has to zoom in for you to even ''see'' it. [[spoiler: When Shahra [[TakingtheBullet Takes The Bullet]], this thing gets subverted all the way to Jahannam; [[EleventhHourSuperpower Darkspine Sonic]] has his [[FantasticFour flame on]], and [[ExtremeMeleeRevenge he is]] '''''[[ExtremeMeleeRevenge not]]''''' [[ExtremeMeleeRevenge scared of using it]]. ]]
