Contested example:

  • In Rome: Total War one of the Stirring Speeches given before battle includes the lines "I want to see their blood! I want to bathe in their blood! I want to bathe in their blood for a week!

I'm asking for more clarification that the character is speaking rather LITERALLY about this (or is shown elsewhere to be washing himself in tubs of blood) and not merely just evoking images of extreme bloodshed through metaphor. Only the former is an applicable trope example of Blood Bath.
