Blood is an essential fluid of many life forms, Gallifreyans and Humans included.

Significance

Food

Some organisms consumed blood in order to survive, namely Vampires, Haemovores and Plasmavores. (DW: State of Decay, The Curse of Fenric, Smith and Jones)

On their home planet, the Ogri subsisted on amino acids, but found that the blood of Earth life forms, including Humans, would do just as well. (DW: The Stones of Blood)

Other species, such as Vortisaurs and Androgums did not subsist off of blood exclusively but would consume it as part of a more varied diet. (BFA: Storm Warning, DW: The Two Doctors)

Practical use

Mortimus used the blood of five species whose destinies the Time Lords had affected in a ritual to summon Artemis, the Chronovore. (NA: No Future)

Blood also formed an important part of some Faction Paradox rituals. Sometimes biodata would be extracted from the blood of a being to use in a Faction Rite or Ritual. (EDA: Alien Bodies)

Some species, including the Sycorax, used a form of hypnosis known as blood control. (DW: The Christmas Invasion)

Judoon scanners checked blood to gather information on the units species. (DW: Smith and Jones)

Colour

There are many variatians in blood colour.

Blood is a combination of certain types of specialist cells suspended in a fluid which is found in most corporeal lifeforms. Blood circulates the body delivering nutrients to cells and taking away waste products.

Depending on the base material of the blood it can be different colours for different species. Many species, including Humans had red, iron based, blood. Vulcans and Romulans had green copper based blood, whilst Andorians and Bolians had blue blood. This often resulted in cultural significances of the colours, for instance: on Human starships a red alert signified danger, while on Romulan ships red was a good omen-with green lighting indicating danger. Such was the case when Kirk and McCoy were lost in the decks of a warbird, after overpowering their Reman medic, Facilitator. The two figured out crimson was "safe" and emerald implied a warning (ENT novel: The Good That Men Do, ST novel: Captain's Blood).

Jem'Hadar had amber-coloured blood. While Benzite blood was an orange color, made from mercury and platinum. (DS9 novels: Warpath, Devil in the Sky)

Blood cells were some the first to be assimilated when an individual was injected with Borg nanoprobes, the nanoprobes found blood cells and latched onto them, taking control. This process caused the grey, veiny appearance-which signified someone has just begun the process of being assimilated. (VOY episode: "Scorpion"; TNG movie: First Contact; et al.)

Ancient Vulcan tradition held that dried, congealed blood seasoned the blades of weapons. (EV comic: "Cloak and Dagger")

The inhabitants of Meldrar I held a tradition in which, following the death of a member of their race, a pouch of the individual’s blood was returned to Meldrar to be poured into the Meldrarae Sea. (DS9 novel: Avatar)

"Oh. My. God. You're covered in..."
Janissary James

Blood is used to transport nutrients through the body of a multicellular organism. In the case of humans, it uses a compound called hemoglobin to transport oxygen to the cells. Because of cellular respiration, every single cell in the human body needs oxygen, so blood must deliver oxygen to every cell in the body. This is most likely true all of the other Covenant races, though their blood may be delivering a different compound to the body, resulting in its difference in color to human blood.

Contents

In the Halo Series

When shot without the protection of an energy shield, the target will "bleed." In some races, the blood will visibly come out of the target, and leave a stain on the ground. The viscosity and color of the blood varies by race.

Covenant Species

Others

As in reality, Humans will bleed red blood when shot. Forerunner artifacts, such as the Menachite Forerunner Complex, may at times be manipulated by human blood.[5] The Flood will always bleed a pasty, brownish-green color, and the explosion of a Carrier Form or an Infection Form will leave a brown stain on the ground. In gameplay, however, Infection forms do not "bleed", but rather explode into bits of flesh.

Trivia

  • Sometimes on Halo: Combat Evolved bullet holes with blood and/or blood splatters will be visible at certain angles though nothing was there or nothing was shot or hurt.
  • In Halo: The Flood, the word ichor was used instead of the word blood.[verification needed] Ichor was the golden blood of the Greek Gods of Olympus.
  • The blood and the amount of blood of Covenant foes changes during the course of the three Halo games. For example, Grunts, Elites, Hunters and Jackals bled profoundly when meleed in Halo: Combat Evolved, and yet, in Halo 2, the player must shoot the corpse in order for it to bleed. In Halo 3, the amount of blood is lessened dramatically, but is given in greater detail. Grunt blood also seems more vicious, as opposed to slightly watery looking in the earlier games.
  • In Halo 3, when a Brute is shot and blood is spilled, there seems to be odd luminous chunks in the blood. You can see this in human blood as well.
  • Sometimes in Halo: Combat Evolved on the Xbox, the game will lag if too many blood decals are being rendered.
  • "Blood" is a Sangheili curse word.[6]
  • The Brutes are the only race to have significantly different colored blood from one game to another, although in some Halo Legends episodes, other species also have different blood color than the games.

Starwars

Up to date as of February 04, 2010

From Wookieepedia, the Star Wars wiki.

A freshly chopped-off Aqualish arm draining blood.
"The average humanoid adult has a blood volume of approximately four-point-nine liters, of which two-point-seven liters is plasma. Humanoid survival with an untreated Class Four blood loss—that is, greater than forty percent of total volume—is unlikely for more than a few minutes. The amount of blood soaked into this carpet is, I estimate, nearly three liters. Even if the deceased had recently spent some months at an altitude sufficient to have radically thickened his blood, his red cell count could not be sufficient to allow survival with such a volumetric loss."
I-5YQ, on the stabbing death of Ves Volette

Blood was a bodily fluid that many species had. It provided a way for the body to transport oxygen, nutrients and other things vital to survival. The color of blood varied between species. It was red in humans, for example, and a greenish color in Duros.

According to Han Solo, the taste of blood was roughly equivalent to the taste of liquid tin.[1]

Behind the scenes

In Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace, a brief splatter of blood can be seen when Darth Maul is cut down by Obi-Wan.

In Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, Ponda Baba lost his arm to Obi-Wan Kenobi's blade, producing a trail of blood. However, any subsequent time a limb is seen lost, the lightsaber flash-cauterizes the wound, resulting in little to no blood loss.

From Teletraan I: The Transformers Wiki

See also Bomb-Burst
Carpe Jugulem.
Blood is a Decepticon Pretender in the Masterforce portion of the Generation One continuity family.

Blood is the cruelest of the Decepticon Pretenders under the command of Devil Z. He can perform magic such as mind control and the re-animation of corpses. He will often let his own thirst for revenge cloud his judgement, at which point Gilmer has to get him back on track. Dauros also has a rivalry going with Blood, though Dauros typically loses any competitions between them.

Italian Tv dub name: Lobos

Fiction

Super-God Masterforce cartoon

Voice actor: ? (Japanese)

Thousands of years ago, Blood, along with his Decepticon Pretender cohorts, were imprisoned in various remote spots on the Earth until he was freed in modern times by Giga and Mega, human Godmasters who serve Devil Z.

    • Japanese ID number: D-201
    • Accessories: Bat-shell, left & right shoulder-wings, belt, axe, 2 blasters
No, I'm the other guy.
Blood transforms into a Cybertronic jet with VTOL turbines. In robot mode, like many other Pretender inner robots, he is a fairly generic robot with decent articulation for the period. His outer Pretender Shell is a vampiric bat-humanoid with enlarged ears. It is also equipped with a belt and bat-winged shoulder pads. Blood's robot mode guns connect together to form a rifle that his Pretender shell can hold.
Blood was also available in Hasbro's markets as Bomb-Burst. There are no differences between the two versions.
