[[folder:Blood]]

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder: Anime and Manga ]]

* ''Manga/{{Gunnm}}'': Caerula Sanguis, whose name means "blue blood," both a mark of her [[LadyOfWar regal and elegant bearing]] and of her...shall we say...[[OurVampiresAreDifferent clinical status.]]
* ''Anime/DokiDokiPrecure'' has the [[ArtifactOfDoom Blood]] [[RestrainingBolt Rings]] which were made from [[spoiler: Leva and Gula's esscences after Bel had killed them]]. [[GoldfishPoopGang Ira and Mammo]] are wearing them because [[spoiler: he tricked them into doing so]].

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Comic Books ]]

* [[{{Etrigan}} Jason Blood]], to whom an actual demon from Hell is bound. He's extremely knowledgeable as a mystic and demonologist, and he's also immortal.
* [[ComicBook/{{X-Men}} Sangre]], of the Children of the Vault.
* Bloodsport, the name of three ComicBook/{{Superman}} villains.
* Sebastian "Brother" Blood, immortal human sacrificing cult leader.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Film ]]

* The classic ''Film/CaptainBlood''.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Literature ]]

* Creator/RafaelSabatini's famous pirate, [[Literature/CaptainBloodHisOdyssey Captain Blood]], started his career as ''Doctor'' Blood. It works either way! He was not bloodthirsty at all, and was a complex and sensitive man, so his name had a touch of irony to it... Which was completely lost in the [[Film/CaptainBlood movie]], turning him into an uncomplicated {{badass}} with an appropriate name.
* The Bloody Baron from the ''Literature/HarryPotter'' series, as well as a vampire named Sanguini.
* The crimelord who forms the main antagonist in Gene Wolfe's ''Nightside the Long Sun'' goes by the name of Blood. (In their city men all have single names that refer to animals or animal byproducts, like the protagonist ''Silk'' and his student ''Horn,'' but Blood is still an alarming name even in context.)
* Lapblood the rat from ''TheUnderlandChronicles.''
* Averted in the second series of ''WelkinWeasels'' novels, where one of the main characters is named Bryony Bludd, which is lampshaded by (wouldn't you know it?) a vampiric stoat. It's still a MeaningfulName, though; she's a veterinary surgeon (which within the series actually means a doctor to her fellow {{Talking Animal}}s).

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Professional Wrestling ]]

* The evil-sounding connotations of Blood as a name is what led a young, babyface pro-wrestler to switch from his real name, Richard Blood, to the stage name Ricky Steamboat (arguably the only example of a wrestler having a more Badass real name than stage name)

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Tabletop Games ]]

* The Primarch of the Blood Angels Space Marines chapter in ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' was imaginatively named Sanguinus.
** On the other hand, he was a formidable fighter but not an evil man -- or primarch.
* Another example from ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' is the Eldar god of murder/violence/destruction/war Kaela Mensha Khaine the Bloody Handed God, his [[GodInHumanForm Avatars]] also count.
* The Bloodthirster Greater Daemon of Khorne from ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}''.

* And combining this with the XtremeKoolLetterz example below, we have ChaoticEvil AxCrazy PsychoForHire dwarf [[BaldursGate Korgan Bloodaxe]]
* [[VideoGame/BlazBlue Ragna The Bloodedge]]. In actually, one of the sanest people around. But he has a fearsome OneWingedAngel form which fits the trope to a tee.
* Blood Raven from ''VideoGame/{{Diablo}} II'', the first boss you encounter. If you waltz into the Burial Grounds at LV5, fresh form the Den of Evil, she will mop the floor with you.
* Bloodmonster from the Nightmare, from the obscure {{Dada}} game ''[[http://gzstorm.com/78641/ 78641, a Targ Adventure]]'', [[spoiler: is a [[DoubleSubverted Double Subversion]]. He turns out to be a senile old man... but he's also the closest thing the game has to a FinalBoss.]]

* The "blood eagle," a particularly {{squick}}tastic Viking method of killing, which one source describes as [[BodyHorror "breaking [a man's] ribs and ripping his lungs from his back, where they continued to expand and contract in a motion that mimicked the flapping of the great bird's wings."]]
* Wrestling/RickySteamboat and Wrestling/RichieSteamboat's real names are both Richard Blood. They are both faces, but as pro wrestlers they're still guys you wouldn't want to mess with

[[folder:Fang]]

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder: Anime and Manga ]]

* Since 'kiba' is the Japanese word for 'fang', Kiba the dog-themed ninja from ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' and Kiba the wolf from ''Manga/WolfsRain'' also qualify.

The comic ended with him pretending to be killed while taking out a Waterbender and Earthbender, and being remembered as a hero.[[/note]] Although not particularly intimidating in the show, Wang Fire has become a MemeticBadass among fans, identified as the god of manliness and beards and as a separate entity from Sokka.
