|“|| You probably won't notice a Blood Rose until it sprouts to its towering size and begins hurling giant thorns at you. These projectiles move fairly fast and come in large clusters.
Blood Roses were corrupt flowers who despised Alice Liddell's appearance and attacked her by shooting out red thorns from their petals. They were an extremely large enemy, towering over Alice when they reached their full size, and served the Queen of Hearts.
American McGee's Alice
Before growth, the Roses were tiny, regular-sized flowers, but upon approaching them they grew to around twice Alice's size. Their stalks were a dark, lush green color destroyed by a heavy arm of thorns. Closer to their head was a scarf of thick leaves that surrounded their dark pink petals. They appeared to have a dark purple face in the center of their petals.
- Thorn Barrage – The Blood Rose hisses, and its petals expel rose thorns.
- Swipe – When Alice is close to the Rose, it swipes at her with its leaves.
There is no real trick to defeating the Roses, except for avoiding their first barrage of thorns. Afterwards, they will be lucky to even hit Alice. Walking up to the vicious flora will cause them to swipe at Alice. One throw of the Vorpal Blade kills them easily, and a shot from the mallet can kill them in three hits.
- Blood Roses and Shrinking Violets appear to be based on the Garden of Talking Flowers as seen in Alice's second adventure, Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There.
- The Roses are not fully grown until Alice approaches them.
