* ''Literature/WingsOfFire'', being written by an Creator/ErinHunter, is no stranger to this:
** The ''prologue'' has a dragon trying to steal an egg in order to fulfill TheProphecy. A rival queen captures him and proceeds to [[WouldHurtAChild throws the egg]] [[DeathOfAChild off a cliff]] in front of him. Burn then ''spears him in the head'' with her poisonous tail, instantly killing him, and flings his body off the cliff too.

* One surprisingly lighthearted CutSong from ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheChamberOfSecrets'' details [[OurGhostsAreDifferent Nearly Headless Nick's]] botched execution with a blunt axe.

* Listing all of the gory and creepy deaths in ''Literature/{{Fablehaven}}'' would take all night, but the big standout is probably [[spoiler: Naverog's]] death. He gets [[HalfTheManHeUsedToBe bitten in half.]] His lifeless torso stump slumps to the ground, right in front of one of the teenaged protagonists.

** ''The Hunge Games'' is ripe with this. Not surprising considering how many children have died in Panem for entertainment over the past 75 years. How about being caught in a net and speared by a trident courtesy of a ''fourteen year-old''? Or having an axe essentially boomeranged into your head? Or having a nest of vicious, highly venomous genetically engineered wasps dropped on you while you were sleeping? This happening with the whole world watching you doesn't make it better.

** Those [[AdaptationDisplacement more familiar with adaptations]] such as [[Film/TheWizardOfOz MGM film]] might be shocked by how violent the first book is. ''Literature/TheWonderfulWizardOfOz'' contains a scene where the Tin Woodman cuts off the heads of various wolves and the Scarecrow breaks a bunch of crows necks, A bunch of bees also die, but they just die after breaking their stingers off of the Woodman's body.

* ''Real-Life Monsters'' in ''[[Creator/{[Disney}} Walt Disney's]]'' ''Fun to Learn Library'' has an illustration of an Albertosaurus biting and clawing the neck of a Brontosaurus. Worst of all, blood is shown, despite the target audience being young children.

* In the later ''Literature/LandOfOz'' books, [[NeverSayDie no one can die]]. This information comes ''after'' characters in the books have been chopped into pieces, beheaded, melted, and so forth and it's mentioned that you could be transformed into an inanimate object, turned into sand, and buried. Even so, [[BlessedWithSuck you'd still be alive and presumably conscious]] '''[[AndIMustScream forever]]'''. Note also the spell which caused this also prevented aging, and took effect on everyone in Oz at the same time; this means that any babies in Oz are ''eternally'' babies, and that anyone who was at the moment of death is permanently caught there, and so on... ''Oz'' suffers from a ghastly ContinuitySnarl, so it is possible that one book stated that the characters age until a certain age then stop, somewhere. But there were definitely books in which it was stated that babies would be babies forever.
