* In "VideoGame/{{KingdomHearts}}, several villains suffer horrifying deaths including [[spoiler: being burnt to nonexistence whilst having a weapon shoved through the character's chest.]]

** The same game has Zero getting {{Flashback Nightmare}}s of him surrounded by bloodied corpses [[spoiler: (his victims when he first awoke as a Maverick)]], with blood on his hands as well.

* Admiral A-Qira's disturbingly realistic death in ''[[VideoGame/BattallionWars Battallion Wars II]]'' is a bit off-putting, given the game's ambiguously family freindly nature. He gets poisoned by Kaiser Vlad and falls to the ground coughing and retching!

Added DiffLines:

* ''Franchise/CrashBandicoot'' has always been well known for its [[TheManyDeathsOfYou wide variety]] of [[AmusingInjuries hilarious]] death animations, most of which are [[AntiFrustrationFeatures not even lethal!]] Which makes it all the more harrowing when one of the more lengthy death animations feature the poor underwater Bandicoot desperatly struggling for air and kicking and convulsing frantically, before his lifeless corpse floats to the surface of [[SuperDrowningSkills shallow water]]. Sleep well, Kiddo!

* ''VideoGame/SpaceQuest III'' did this too, with enemies carrying gel guns that would trap you in a solid block of a Jell-O-like substance. Very cartoony! Then {{Sierra}}'s trademark HaveANiceDeath screen pops up, and mentions that ''there are no air holes''.

* ''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]]
