Bloodswap is the name of a common trope in Homestuck fanworks. In these AUs the blood color of the trolls and therefore their social status is different than in canon. Because blood castes are very important on their home planet Alternia and also correspond with special powers and roles both inside and outside of the game Sgrub, this changes each character's fate significantly. Stories in which the blood color of the characters do not change, but the social blood hierarchy does, are also frequently called bloodswap.

On Archive of Our Own tags such as "Bloodswap," "Hemospectrum Inversion," and "Hemoswap AU" are synned with "Hemospectrum Shift."
