** Let's not forget Warren, when he gets flayed alive onscreen which is the second most gruesome moment in the show (first being when Gnarl eats Willow's skin). And like Caleb, he was a psychotic misogynist who deserved it. At least Caleb being chopped in half was somewhat offscreen. Even worse with Warren is when he returns in the Season 8 comics as a body with no skin.

* ''SesameStreet'': Narrowly averted in an early episode, where -- after he devour everything in sight -- Cookie Monster attempts ''to eat KermitTheFrog''. Cookie shows some mercy, however.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/{{Farscape}}'' was ''loaded'' with them:
** Although he didn't die ''per se'', In "DNA Mad Scientist" we're treated to an incredibly painful TransformationSequence as Namtar rapidly devolves from his sentient and heavily genetically modified state, back to the lab critter he was originally. And it's all done on-screen.
** "A Bug's Life" features an intelligent virus which hijacks its host, and proceeds to commit gruesome murders. In one case, Crichton, while possessed, ''crushes a female Peacekeeper's skull'' with a piece of Zhaan's laboratory equipment by bludgeoning her repeatedly.
** Br'Nee is cut in half with his own shrinking ray in "Bone to be Wild" and we get to watch his lifeless corpse twitch. Not to mention what it's implied Em'Lee does to her victims after Scorpius "rescues" her...
** While a favorite among Crichton/Aeryn shippers because of its strong romantic plot, the "Look at the Princess" trilogy has several: Prince Clavor has his ''face'' melted by the Scarran Ambassador, who himself is later dumped into a vat of acid. The Empress's servant, who has betrayed Crichton to Scorpius, gets tossed into a high-voltage panel and electrocuted, causing her ''skin to split open'' and blood to pour from the wounds.
** Crichton blows the head off ''another'' Scarran by jamming an overloaded pulse pistol in its mouth.
** The fate of the Peacekeeper test pilots unfortunate enough to be chosen by Scorpius in his wormhole experiments: Reduced to liquefied goo. We don't see their deaths on-screen, but we ''do'' see the gooey results. Linfer suffers the same fate and we actually ''see'' her begin to liquefy.
** Scorpius killed his Scarran nanny by ''[[EyeScream jamming a broken cooling tube into her eye sockets]]'', then locking her in a room to freeze to death (we see the first part, but don't see her actually succumb).
** Aeryn's old friend in part two of "Into the Liar's Den" gets her ''face burned off'' as Scorpius's Command Carrier explodes around them. We watch her stumble forward a few paces, gasping for breath before she finally collapses and dies.
** The deaths of D.K. and his wife at the hands of Skreeth: We don't see the fatal blow, but we ''do'' get to see them tortured first.
** Bioloid!Aeryn gets a ''gaping hole blown in her face'' by Crichton when they discover the switch.
** Hynerian Dermafolica is ''not'' a pleasant way to go.

* ''TheMuppetShow.'' A large monster eats a smaller, cuter monster ''while singing a very eerie version of "I've Got You Under My Skin" to his victim.'' Did the person who came up with that gem have a vore {{fetish}} or something?

** [[spoiler:Spike's]] DyingMomentOfAwesome - ''being burned alive from the inside out''. It's awesome by virtue that [[spoiler:he]] [[TakingYouWithMe took an entire army]] with [[spoiler:him]], but watching [[spoiler:his]] skin shrivel and burn is pretty horrifying.

** "The Daleks's Master Plan" has an unusually graphic ending for ''Who'' -- the Daleks activate a time-altering superweapon which almost kills the Doctor, and ages the Doctor's companion Sara from a beautiful young woman into an old woman, then into a mummified corpse, a skeleton, and then to dust. Steven then puts the weapon into reverse, which causes the Daleks to de-age into foetuses, which eject from their cases, flop about and die. The Doctor even picks up one of these foetuses and laughs about how great it is that he's wiped out every Dalek on the planet, leading to a WhatTheHellHero moment from Steven.

** Frax's death in ''[[Series/PowerRangersTimeForce Time Force]]'' was a DiesWideOpen involving a scream and parts of his robotic face falling apart. This after his having been reprogrammed into a mindless automaton by the BigBad.
** Believe it or not, ''[[Series/PowerRangersWildForce Wild Force]]'' was the first Power Rangers season to show blood.
*** As a ''plot point'', nonetheless. [[spoiler: The blood dripping from Zen-Aku's hand indicates he isn't a normal Org, as Orgs don't have hearts and therefore can't bleed.]]
** In another episode where Alyssa is attacked and Zen-Aku tends to her wounds she has a bloody scrape on her leg.
** Flashbacks in showed ''vines assault and grow through the bodies of two terrified humans''. Apparently, a bloodless death can't possibly disturb anyone.

***Also, one MonsterOfTheWeek, while the Orgs were trying to convince Animus that humans weren't worth protecting because they ruin the Earth, attacks a construction site. "Humans destroy the Earth! I DESTROY HUMANS!" he declares, firing a blast of fire. We zoom in on some terrified workers, and... boom! Mind you, the final 'boom' is shown through the not-terribly-clear pool on the Animarium that serves as this year's 'viewing globe.' But still. Incidental civilians that the plot didn't ''need'' to actually die... ''actually die.'' By a blast of ''flame.''



** A rather nasty, MechaMooks loophole exploiting death in ''[[Series/PowerRangersZeo Zeo]]'' where [[EvilVersusEvil two groups of enemy mooks have a battle royale]]. The mooks are Tengas (bird men) and Cogs (spandex robots) You see Tengas and Cogs sluggin it out for a few shots, then it cuts to one Tenga holding down a struggling Cog while another Tenga ''tore open its stomach and ripped out its electronic guts.'' This wasn't ''Series/ChourikiSentaiOhranger'' footage that slipped past the censors, either - Tengas were ''Power Rangers''-exclusive mooks, so it was all original footage.

(Also, Tengas are hatched from eggs and explicitly alive. This makes the ones who were on the ground and not moving at ''all'' explicitly ''dead.'')


Added DiffLines:

**We also get to see some of the grunts in ''Flashman'' gooify some victims. This happens much less often in the newer series; though Super Sentai doesn't suffer from America's NeverSayDie problem, if grunts assault random civilians, the random civilians usually aren't explicitly subjected to melting, etc. onscreen. Not so the earlier series.

Added DiffLines:

* The ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'' episode [[Recap/AgentsOfSHIELDS1E5GirlInTheFlowerDress "The Girl in the Flower Dress"]] features Debbie, a scientist for the mysterious Centipede project, getting roasting alive onscreen, screaming before she turns into a blackened, decaying skeleton. It was slightly toned down for Channel Four pre-watershed airings in the UK, but was still pretty horrific.

* ''Series/DoctorWho'' is well known for having ostensibly started off as a somewhat educational sci-fi series that would be fun for the whole family... but quickly led to the tradition of kiddies hiding behind the couch. From Dalek {{Death Ray}}s, to being eaten alive by a [[PrimalFear giant spider-thing]], to [[Recap/DoctorWhoNSS3E1SmithAndJones having your blood sucked out of your neck through a straw]], almost every other adventure brought a new and painful way to die.
** Two fairly notorious examples from the classic episodes would be a guard falling into a pool of acid in ''[[Recap/DoctorWhoS22E2VengeanceOnVaros Vengeance on Varos]]'' (mostly notable because the Doctor seems to make a [[BondOneLiner mean-spirited quip]] about it afterward) and Kane, the low-temperature-lifeform villain in ''[[Recap/DoctorWhoS24E4Dragonfire Dragonfire]]'', exposing himself to direct sunlight, resulting in his face melting off, ''Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk''-style (one of the few occasions on which the series' special effects managed to be memorably gruesome).

** ''Franchise/SuperSentai'' was far worse when it came to this. Especially in the early 80s. In the first episode of ''Series/DenshiSentaiDenziman'', for example, construction workers are skeletonized into piles of sludge and bones. The BigBad leader's name is Queen Hedrian, after the Japanese word "Hedoro", which means sludge.

* Caleb's death in ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' - bisected from the groin up. Being a psychotic, misogynistic serial killer seems to make this acceptable viewing, however.
