Added DiffLines:

* Book 2 has Tortoise, who is killed by having each one of his teeth pulled out, then impaled by [[spoiler: Coral.]] Notably this is one of two death that seem to be censored, with Tsunami conviently looking away halfway through.
* [[spoiler: Crocodile meets the same fate as Fjord from book one; what is essentially acid in his eye.]]
* Book 4 has Vengeance, who is drowned in lava.
* Book 6 has [[spoiler: A bomb going off in a school, killing 2 dragonets.]]
* Book 7 reveals one of the most horrifying ones yet [[spoiler: 2,000 years ago Foeslayer was enchanted by Queen Diamond to be able to die over and over, but still living. She apparently has died thousands of times, and feels the pain of dying, but still lives on.]]
* Book 8 has [[spoiler: Scarlet’s neck snapped]]
* Darkstalker might be the darkest book yet, with several of the most violent deaths yet.
** [[spoiler: The most notable death is Arctic’s death, the 2nd death to be censored. Arctic is forced by Darkstalker to cut out his tung and then disembowel himself.]] while not described in too much detail, it still is horrifying.
** [[spoiler: Albatross kills many dragons with magical knife, which is an event so traumatic that it actually gives Fathom PTSD.]]

** At the end of ''The Dragonet Prophecy'', Scarlet decides that [[spoiler:Kestrel]] is [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness unneeded anymore]], slits her throat, and [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill then stabbed her in the heart with her poisonous tail]]. That didn't kill her so [[spoiler:Morrowseer]] nudged her off a cliff.

* ''Literature/WhereTheRedFernGrows'' is a popular book with fifth graders and early middle schoolers, some places even require you to read it. The book goes into graphic detail about hunting animals, a human character dying, and [[spoiler:later the two dogs dying]].

** In order to make sure no dragonets could fulfill the prophecy, ''all'' the dragonets born on the Brightest Night were killed.
** In the first book, Clay is made to fight an [=IceWing=] named Fjord. When no one is looking, Glory sprays Fjord with acid. Fjord dies a slow, agonizing death as his face and neck melt away. Clay can't bare to watch.
** Osprey is an older dragon who can't fly anymore. Scarlet grabs him, flies up high, and lets him drop. Dragon bones are difficult to break, however Osprey falls and shatters multiple bones. He doesn't instantly die on impact.

** Pretty much everything about [[AlwaysChaoticEvil dogs]] in the series. As mentioned above Swiftpaw is slaughtered by a pack of dogs, and Brightheart loses [[EyeScream an eye]] and half her face to the same dogs (she doesn't die, though). Later in the same book Tigerstar murders Brindleface in order to use her body as bait for the dogs. Then there are the dogs in ''Sunrise'', who killed (and presumably ate) ''at least'' six cats, and apparently ''tore one of them to pieces''.

Added DiffLines:

** The first thing that [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen Scarlet]] does on-screen is ''bite'' the [[OffWithHisHead head]] off of a human. The book goes into quite a bit of detail on it as well. The sight is so upsetting that it kills [[BigEater Clay's]] appetite, even though he and his friends have previously joked about wanting to hunt humans.
** Scarlet snaps Dune's neck.
** Horizon is a minor dragon who is pitted against Peril. Realizing that he can't win, he [[BetterToDieThanBeKilled grabs hold of her]] and burns himself to death on her scales.

* ''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.

* 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.
