* The [[ComicBook/DisneyMouseAndDuckComics Disney Comics]] are rife with this. Characters can be blown up, dropped from buildings, electrocuted, attacked by dogs, whatever, but actually sustain long-term injuries let alone ''killed''? Not unless the plot specifically requires it, like the Phantom Blot's numerous {{Death Trap}}s, which are played menacingly straight as being very lethal (of course, Mickey always escapes somehow). Even if someone (usually Donald) ends up as a BandageMummy at the end, he's perfectly fine by the next story.

* ''ComicBook/TheMask'' also deconstructed this as part of its central premise. The titular mask turns its wearer into a living cartoon character capable of doling out classic cartoon stuff like TorsoWithAView, SquishedFlat and what have you, the only catch is that the unfortunate recipients are still regular humans, who are gorily and messily killed as a result.

* Deconstructed in the horror comic ''ComicBook/DylanDog''. In one issue, a Roger Rabbit expy came to the real world from cartoonland. Carnage ensued, since his amusing slapstick violence actually killed people, but he wasn't aware of things such as permanent injuries and death. It was actually kinda creepy.

* Often in the stories by Creator/WilhelmBusch, up to Amusing Death. Note that these stories are more than 100 years old, and even decades older than ''TheYellowKid'', often said to be the first comic.

** He also does this to poor Mr Immortal of the ''GreatLakesAvengers''. So does almost everyone who they face off against, and this is on top of his own death wish, which is played for amusement.

* ''ComicBook/TheSuperiorFoesOfSpiderMan'' reconstructs this trope by merging it with RealityEnsues; the characters frequently have to deal with the long-term consequences of their injuries, but this is just used to make them even funnier such as Shocker mumbling incoherently for half of issue 1 because his jaw got broken or Speed Demon trying to work around his broken ankle by [[WorstAid strapping it to a roller skate so he can keep moving]].
