Blood Magic is a form of Magic in which the user has the inherent power in their blood to fuel spell-casting. This is an ancient version that predates word-based magic and was considered by some to be more powerful. Blood Magic was a kind of magic based on the employment of blood which is an important component in many rituals, spells and other aspects of the supernatural world.

  • Nico Minoru from the Runaways can only summon her Staff of One when she is bleeding. Menstrual blood also works in this case.[1] It also allows her to circumvent one of the restrictions the spell has reviving the dead during Avengers Arena Vol 1 after she sheds enough.[2]
  • Conan the Barbarian once battled a witch who used a particularly nasty curse triggered by blood. Only a single drop of spilled blood was necessary to cause her victims to age rapidly and die within seconds, leaving behind a withered corpse. The only protection against the curse were magic talismans owned by three brothers who were the witch's enemies.[citation needed]
  • Most spells used by Vampires are based on blood magic.[citation needed]
