* An internal example occurred in ''{{Sliders}}'', where rogue robots were being collected. Two of the sliders were only discovered when they were attacked with hand-to-hand combat, and the robots noticed the blood.

* This is the twist in one of the ''[=DOLLS=]'' manga stories. A woman abuses her "Doll" horribly throughout the story, and flips out when said "Doll" develops an interest in a young man. The "Doll" finally has enough and shows the woman the blood from the injuries inflicted by her and forces her to face reality -- she is the woman's totally human ''daughter''. The woman had been gangraped in her youth and the "Doll" was the result of that. The woman imagined that she had aborted her baby and replaced her with a Doll in an attempt to cope with her trauma.

* A partial example in ''{{Literature/Railsea}}'', when what [[ObfuscatingDisability everyone thought]] was Naphi's prosthetic arm gets damaged & starts bleeding. She wears it because, as ''Railsea'' is one-third Literature/MobyDick pastiche, she is expected by cultural norms to have both an AnimalNemesis & to have lost a limb to that nemesis. She has the nemesis, but her body still has all four limbs, so in order to be taken seriously by other captains...

--> '''Zane Gort:''' Come to think of it, I once did end a Dr. Tungsten chapter just that way: Platinum Paula turns out to be an empty robot-shell with a human movie starlet inside at the controls. I knew my readers would feel so frustrated they'd want to get on to something else right away. So I cut to [[{{Fanservice}} Silver Vilya oiling herself]]. That always tickles them.

* In ''VisualNovel/VirtuesLastReward'', Sigma at one point gets a cut on his hand and is startled to find that the cut is bleeding white blood. Luna tells him that the white blood manes he could be a GAULEM, a form of robot with artificially produced emotions and pain, which are basically indistinguishable from humans when they've got their artificial skin on. She eventually runs a test on him and finds that he's not a robot. The irony comes in the fact that [[spoiler:Luna ''is'' a robot]].
