** ''Bleach'' has its own particular spots as well, such as the two vertical downward cuts to the middle of the collar bones that show up again and again and again. Apparently lungs are one of the least essential parts of the body, because everyone seems to function fine with theirs in tatters.

Other cases in include Carlos Colon, Savio Vega, Wrestling/NewJack and Wrestling/MasatoTanaka, the latter of whom went [[LaterInstallmentWeirdness considerably well into his career before the scar tissue started forming]], but it came on like a vengeance.

* The forehead variant is especially common in ProfessionalWrestling. Typically, a wrestler will inflict it on himself using a razor blade hidden on his person (a process known as a bladejob) and through a little cooperative sleight of hand, it will be made to look like the opponent, usually a {{Heel}}, inflicted the wound. There is also a technique wherein a wrestler can split open another performer's eyebrow with a well-placed punch. More common in the early days, few are skilled enough to execute it properly today. In Pro-Wrestling terminology the practice of intentionally drawing blood is known as "juicing", "gigging" or "drawing colour" and has become less common in recent years, due to concerns over HIV and other blood-borne diseases. The forehead is the favored spot for bleeding because of the abundance of blood vessels and the fact that the blood will mix with sweat on the forehead and run everywhere, making the wound look more dramatic. The best example would probably be the 1992 Wrestling/NewJapanProWrestling match between Wrestling/TheGreatMuta and Hiroshi Hase, in which Muta bled so profusely that by the end of the match his face was stained completely red. To this day the severity of bladejobs is measured on the "Muta Scale".
