“I need blood” is a series of exploitable images parodying or mocking an image created by Deviantart user TDIGURL12. The original image depicts two individuals resembling characters from the Sonic the Hedgehog series. In it, one of them remorsefully confesses he ‘needs blood’, while the other assures him that he may take hers.
The original image was titled “Jake_and_Maribelle” and was uploaded to Deviantart by user TDIGURL12. The image has since been removed from the site and the account deactivated, but the image continues to resurface throughout the Internet.
As a result of its low level of quality the image was posted to various websites including SomethingAwful, NeoGaf, and Reddit; mostly in response to This image. The Reddit thread on r/WTF accumulated nearly 2 thousand up votes before being archived.
The phrase ‘I need blood’ has resurfaced regularly throughout the board, most commonly used to mock an image intended to have excessive levels of depth and meaning, though in reality its poor quality and choice of subject matter detracts any chance of the image being taken seriously.
The phrase has also been used to label an uninspiring original character, in a similar fashion to ‘donut steel’.
