** ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure2'' has a little girl shot to death, the genocide of everyone else on ARK; and Gerald Robotnik's execution scene. ''Anime/SonicX'' made the latter scene even worse by adding gun shots when the camera cuts away

* In ''[[Videogame/BattleZone1998 Battlezone II: Combat Commander]]'', dying as an ISDF soldier will show a [[http://i.imgur.com/qS7Mpco.jpg failure screen]] with your character's limbs being ripped apart by plasma fire, their ribcage being exposed from heat, and their [[YourHeadAsplode faceplate exploding outward in a shower of blood]]. [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids The game is rated E by the ESRB for "animated violence"]]. Dying as a Scion nets you the much less gruesome screen of your character [[ImMelting melting]] into a pool of [[UnObtanium biometal]]. In the first game, completing the Europa mission for the Americans shows a dead, bloating Soviet CCA soldier half-buried in the frozen ground with his faceplate shattered. The Soviet failure screen shows your character's skeleton inside a heavily damaged spacesuit. Again, rated E.

* ''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/DigDug''. Driller inflates his enemies til they explode. Said enemies are ''living creatures''.
* Miss Peaches in ''[[VideoGame/DogsLife Dog's Life]]'' invents a massive machine to turn dogs into cat food. However, the main character [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n7bC_kAR-wU&t=5m30s is able to turn the tables on her]] and causes her to fall in the machine by '''[[Main/ToiletHumour farting in her face.]]''' She comes out as an oversized can with her legs sticking out the bottom in a childish {{Slapstick}} gag, but then the machine realizes its mistake and pulls her ''back in!'' The machine exclaims that she has been "sliced, diced and mashed" and a row of cat food cans are seen exiting the machine.

* Eric Chahi seems to have a thing for horribly violent death. While this is merely somewhat shocking in games that might plausibly have been for older players, being ripped limb-from-limb by living shadows in the very Disney-esque ''VideoGame/HeartOfDarkness'' is quite jarring.
** And that is just the beginning of the list of horrific deaths the player character can suffer.

* In ''VideoGame/IllusionOfGaia'', the Jackal's death is quite gruesome, particularly for an SNES game. He has captured the hero's love interest, but the hero plays his flute, activating the booby trap of the room to spew a stream of fire at the Jackal, setting his body completely alight. He slowly burns to death as he tries to crawl his way along the floor to the protagonists before finally collapsing, still in flames. If you exit and re-enter the room afterwards, his bones remain.

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]]...

* The reason why everyone who still claims ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker'' was a [[LighterAndSofter "kiddy game"]] because of its graphics is pretty likely to hit the FandomBerserkButton: Ganondorf's death by being impaled with the Master Sword through the jewel on his forehead by a 9-year-old kid was even more brutal than his chest-impalement in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess''.

* ''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''.

* The EUR/JPN versions of ''VideoGame/UmJammerLammy'' have a cutscene where Lammy avoids being run over by traffic, but then slips on a BananaPeel left on the sidewalk by P.J. Berri, lands on the hard concrete, '''dies''', and then finds herself in Hell, which is where Stage 6 begins. Despite this, [[http://www.pegi.info/en/index/global_id/505/?searchString=lammy the game got a 3+ rating in Europe.]]
** However, in the American version, the cutscene was completely re-animated and the level takes place on an exotic island instead, because Sony did not approve of having Hell or the lead character's on-screen death in an E-rated game.

* In ''VideoGame/SonicUnleashed'', Super Sonic flies straight through Dark Gaia's central eye and bursts out of the back of its head. Though you don't see much of that, you DO see Dark Gaia toppling over, crumbling apart with gallons of green blood pouring everywhere.
* ''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 {{Creator/Sierra}}'s trademark HaveANiceDeath screen pops up, and mentions that ''there are no air holes''.
** Not to mention most of the SQ series' deaths were particularly graphic for Sierra standards. SQ3 alone has Roger suffer a fatal cut to an artery leading him to slowly and painfully bleed to death, not to mention ExplosiveDecompression or getting half his face blown off.

* ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'':
** ''VideoGame/ShadowTheHedgehog'' was censored pre-release in order to avoid a higher rating. Despite this, it still got away with Maria being shot (including keeping a still image of the censored moment of impact) and [[spoiler:several endings implying that Shadow snapped Robotnik's neck]].
** ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure2'' has a little girl shot to death, the genocide of everyone else on ARK; and Gerald Robotnik's execution scene. ''Anime/SonicX'' made the latter scene even worse by adding gun shots when the camera cuts away

** Really, Space Quest was really "nice" about these. The first game opens with Roger being the only crew member still alive aboard the Arcada. Just LOOK at the corpses around the deck. Most were gut-shot and/or bled to death from multiple blaster wounds. There's also the grell, where you're chewed up and swallowed by the creature. Dehydration, ExplosiveDecompression, having your head dissolve from an acid pool, run over by motorcycles, BodyHorror at the hands of the Pukoids...[[http://tmd.alienharmony.com/rw/index.htm the list goes on]].

Added DiffLines:

** Getting blown up by a TNT crate leads to Crash's shoes, eyeballs and teeth raining from the sky. Definitely somewhere in the gray area between hilarious and horrifying.
** And a "squashed flat" death in the second game, though humorous on its own, was cut from the Japanese version for too closely resembling a then-active serial killer's modus operandi.

* 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!
