We study complex-valued blowups of solutions for several hydrodynamic models. For complex-valued initial conditions, smooth local solutions can have finite-time singularities since the energy inequality does not hold. By using some version of the renormalization group method, we derive the equations for corresponding fixed points and analyze the spectrum of the linearized operator. We describe the open set of initial conditions for which blowups at finite time can occur.
