* ''VideoGame/MiddleEarthShadowOfMordor'''s opening sequence shows the ritual murder of Talion's adult son, wife, and finally Talion himself, all by [[SlashedThroat a sword drawn across the throat]].

* ''VideoGame/NewSuperMarioBros1'': The first boss is a fight against Bowser, which you win by dropping him into lava, just like in the classic ''Super Mario Bros.''...except that back in the NES days, he didn't [[ConvectionSchmonvection frantically struggle to escape, fall down into the lava]], and briefly resurface as a skeleton after ''having his flesh burned away''. Followed immediately by, depending on who you're playing as, either Mario saying "That's-a so nice!" or Luigi saying "Yay for me, Luigi!" Yeah. ''That's. Messed. Up.''

* ''VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia'', despite it's plot generally being lighter than most TalesSeries, pulls no punches when it comes to Captain Cumore's death at the hands of it's protagonist Yuri Lowell. After the Captain evades punishment for selling citizens into slavery... ''again'', Yuri forgoes simply killing him in his sleep and instead chases him outside and '''[[QuicksandSucks drowns the man in quicksand]]'''. What really helps sell it is how calmly Yuri watches Cumore beg for mercy as he dies.

* Marx [[DisneyDeath Soul]] in ''VideoGame/{{Kirby}} Super Star [[VideoGameRemake Ultra]]''. After you beat the snot outta him, he blows up... then reappears briefly only to ''split in half while screaming with an equally horrific facial expression.'' And then both halves explode and so does the boss arena afterwards. And this is immediately followed by Kirby reigning cheerfully triumphant as the champion of The ''[[BossRush True]]'' [[BossRush Arena]]...
** In Kirby Super Star, if your Partner gets KOd, it starts to slowly explode, and if there are no enemies to emergency Copy or no health to pick up, they're forced to jump around, flailing as they slowly die. However, this can be prevented by using the Normal Beam, turning them into an item, copying it, and turning your copy back into a partner. But if you've got a Copy of your own, no less a special like Crash, well...
** In ''Kirby's Dreamland 3'' there's Zero who, in a final attempt to kill you, ''rips off its own iris'', which is constantly bleeding and after taking enough damage bleeds even more and explodes.
*** Zero's return in ''Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards'' as Zero Two is almost ''worse'' when you give it some thought. To push it into the state where you can damage it, you need to repeatedly ''impale its eye'' with the Crystal Shards, releasing clouds of blood. This stuns it in pain long enough for you to open fire on its bandaged wound from Dreamland 3, which ''makes it writhe in agony.''

** Even though ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'' is Rated-E, the death of the third boss, Barinade, is particularly gruesome. Huge boils begin to form all over it's body and ''it explodes in a burst of green blood and flesh''. And none of it disappears after you kill it. Before leaving you can run around the room and see all of the gore splattered on the floor.
** ''Ocarina Of Time'' really established this as a series tradition for baddies in general and Ganon in particular. The last controllable action in the whole game involves Link slashing at Ganon several times -- with the necessary blood flying around -- before ''jamming the Master Sword into his face''. However, this goes as far back as ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZelda'', where shooting Ganon with a silver arrow causes him to explode into LudicrousGibs. ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkToThePast'' toned Ganon's death down to more generic explosions, but the Magazine/NintendoPower comic brought the gore back, with gallons of blood spilling out of him and very prominent Onamatopoeia detailing it.

** This ''VideoGame/SuperMarioRPG'' fan sequel has a pretty disturbing death and game over scene. Namely, Mario gets shot by firing squad before the game cuts to his funeral with his friends and relatives crying over his corpse in an open top coffin. Cartoony, but certainly a potential way to traumatise any younger Mario fans. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PV_RsRccZP4 Here's a video]]

* FinalFantasyVI has Odin [[HalfTheManHeUsedToBe bisecting six people]] with Atom Edge onscreen, and summoning him in battle allows him to [[OneHitKill do the same to enemies.]]

* In ''VideoGame/OriAndTheBlindForest'', the cutscene where Kuro's owlets are accidentally burned alive by the Spirit Tree is horrifyingly graphic for an E rating.

* ''ABoyAndHisBlob'': To defeat the frog-like enemies you must transform Blob into a coconut which will make the enemy eat him. Then call the Blob back, he'll ''burst out of the enemy, making him explode''. Granted, it's a blob, but it's still kind of grisly.

* A beta version of the SNES platformer ''ArdyLightfoot'' has Catry, the vulpine boss of the fourth level, sporting a ninja costume (and a slightly more pronounced bustline). On the flip side, her final fate in the bowels of the next level's giant worm is as a half-digested corpse (as opposed to a skeleton in the final Japanese version and just lying prone on the ground in the U.S. version).
