The 20 Best Anime Characters Who Fight With Blood Powers

List RulesVote up your favorite characters who use their own blood during battle.

For most anime characters, bleeding is a sign of a problem. But for anime characters who fight with blood, an open wound might be just what they need to dominate their opponents. 

Many of these blood wielding anime characters take their own blood out of their bodies and harden it into weapons that they can use in battle. Others kick it up a notch by turning their blood into ice, boiling liquid, or even into a bible verse. 

How they get their blood back into their bodies is rarely mentioned, and when it is, how they do so cleanly is still left out. These powers are awesome, but also kind of gross - just like the anime characters who use them. Which one do you find the most appealing?

    Since he's a vampire, it's not exactly surprising that Alucard has blood-based abilities. He can do pretty much anything he wants with his and other peoples' blood with seemingly no limits. He can steal people's souls by absorbing their blood or drown people in tidal waves. Needless to say, you do not want to get on Alucard's bad side.

Shiro can turn her own blood into a powerful whip that destroys anything it touches on contact.

    As the current heir to the Kamo Family head, Noritoshi possesses the clan's inherited technique: Blood Manipulation. This techniques allows him to manipulate his own blood into any shape or form. He can use it offensively by shaping his blood into projectiles or sharp weapons. Flowing Red Scale, an offset of this technique, also gives him the ability to increase his number of blood cells, granting him enhanced strength and speed.
