* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' has one of these in the episode "Off Colors". [[spoiler: In an attempt to save the Off Colors from a robonoid, Lars leaps on top of it and starts beating it with a pointed rock. As the robonoid tries to throw him off, he gets so fed up he stabs the sharp end of the rock into the robonoid's "eye", causing it to explode in mid-air. Lars is slammed against a cliff face, falls thirty feet to the ground, hits a rock, bounces back and finally rolls into a ditch. After his [[BackFromTheDead revival]] he sports a nasty scar over his right eye (which was obscured by his hair), indicating he took shrapnel to the face as well]].

** ''WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated'': Blurr gets trapped in a tunnel and crushed by its closing walls. After which his killer (in disguise) casually hands his cube-sized remains over to the nearest Autobot who has no idea what he was told to toss down the disposal chute. Considering the show had no "real" deaths up until this point, this made the emotional impact even worse. [[spoiler: The comics later reveal Cliffjumper kept putting off throwing out the cube, [[AndIMustScream meaning Blurr stayed alive in a crushed-up cube for who knows how long. Sari eventually helps him recover, but not until after sitting helpless and silent for months.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'':
** Grievous graphically killed an alien mechanic/hacker with the lightsaber blade visibly tearing through his chest!
** When Barriss Offee is being attacked [[BrainwashedAndCrazy by a mind-controlled clone]], she takes out her lightsaber and ''guts him'', with a close-up of the sword impacting the clone.
** They really turned it up to eleven with flamethrowers being used on Geonosians by the clones. They burn and scream the whole scene and some of them got especially lucky with being sliced in vertical halves by the Jedi.
** During an escape scene in "Counter Attack", a clone dies in a rather horrible way: [[spoiler:being cut in half by a vent's security doors]], thankfully blocked out by a convenient door closing just prior.
** [[spoiler: Even Piell]] in the same trilogy gets mauled by an alien hyena-wolf-thing. Though they skipped on showing the wounds he should have had, it is quite clear that it nearly ''tore out his throat''.
** [[spoiler: Riff Tamson]] got blown to bits, with his severed head shown on screen. He also uses his explosive knives on multiple Republic fighters, and they also scream as they die.
** Cad Bane is the guy who manages to get away with gangland style, on-screen executions in a children's show. In his first appearance in the show, Cad Bane snaps a guard's neck.
** In "Bounty", Dengar kills two Kage Warriors by sticking remote explosives to their chests and detonating them; only the camera angle saves the viewers from the LudicrousGibs that could have been. And later, [[spoiler:Krismo Sodi]] takes out Major Rigosso with an electrified sword through the gut.
** In "Eminence", Savage Opress decapitates a room full of Black Sun vigos when they refuse to [[spoiler: side with Darth Maul]].
** In "Shades of Reason", [[spoiler: Darth Maul]] decapitates [[spoiler: Pre Vizsla]] in a blatant execution.
** In "Revival" Savage Opress rams [[spoiler: Adi Gallia]] with his head, stabbing her chest with his horns before delivering the death blow with his lightsaber.
** In "Carnage of Krell," not only does [[spoiler: Waxer have tearful last words,]] but [[spoiler: Krell]] suddenly stops using his lightsabers on the clones and breaks a clone's back over his knee. At the end, Dogma [[spoiler: executes Krell]] onscreen.
** The genetically identical clone troopers are given screentime to establish personalities and likeableness, and are ''still'' killed off. Notable examples include two naval officers being sucked into vacuum by having their escape pod cut open, Sergeant O'Niner's execution, and Cutup's being ''eaten by a giant eel''.
** Trandoshan scavenger Gha Nackht is stabbed through the chest by Grievous after capturing R2-D2; ditto for traitor Senate Commando Captain Argyus (although to be fair, he ''did'' mouth off to Asajj Ventress).
** Pirate Turk Falso was Force Choked by Dooku to death ''onscreen''.
** The Rodian Jedi being tortured to death on screen by Cad Bane and the battle droids. When he finally dies, the droid operating the controls announces it in such a disturbing tone of depression in comparison to their usually high-pitched voices, you can't help but shiver.
** A bomber commits suicide rather than be captured by jumping to his death from a balcony.
** In one episode, the enemy general had the local villages bombed instead of the clone troopers. They were full of civilians, children even.
** In "Monster", Asajj Ventress travels to the far side of Dathomir, where she holds incredibly violent contests to determine which Nightbrother clan representative should receive Sith alchemical augmentation and serve as her spy against Count Dooku.
*** She does this by bringing the candidates to an arena, dimming the area lights and ''systematically murdering all but two of them with a scythe on a chain and their own weapons''.
*** Asajj clearly decapitates at least two while laughing maniacally, and when another throws a spear at her, she grabs it in midair only to whip it quite visibly into the chest of another man.
*** Then, after Ventress has selected Savage and brought him back to the Nightsisters to be imbued with their power, the "coven" tests his loyalty—commanding Savage to kill the only other survivor of the games, a man heavily implied to be Savage's blood brother. Savage does so, with a NeckLift and [[NeckSnap the customary follow-up]].
** In the Zygerrian Arc, the prison warden lords over Obi-Wan that, as a Jedi, it's against their code of honor to kill an unarmed opponent, even one as sadistic and evil as him. Captain Rex notes that [[LoopholeAbuse clone troopers have no such rule]] and proceeds to throw an electrostaff [[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice clean through him]], his hoverchair loses control and veers into the nearby console, letting the electrocutions finish off what the impalement started. This probably wouldn't have slipped through the censors if the warden wasn't such a utterly evil bastard.

** The Mon Calamari arc also had this in the form of Riff Tamson, whose weapons of choice are exploding knives. Which he uses on Republic troops onscreen, and we see them explode ''graphically'' as they scream.
*** Tamson himself, too: Prince Lee-Char, the rightful head of state [[YouKilledMyFather whose father was previously murdered by Tamson]], gets an explosive dart stuck in Tamson's neck and shoots at him until he finally hits the thing, causing Tamson to explode and his now-detached head floats down across the screen.

* WesternAnimation/JohnnyTest has the infamous episode "Johnny's Royal Flush" in which Johnny is turned into a fish, flushed down the toilet, and pursued by a hungry SewerGator, that is sucked into what is essentially a giant fan, ripped apart and turned into shoes and bags. And we're supposed to find this ''[[DudeNotFunny funny]]''. Not to mention Johnny (who helped the villains to escape from a horrible fate) [[OutOfCharacterMoment leaving the alligator to die violently]]. The Mysterious Mr. Enter pointed that out in his review for that episode.

** In the Christmas episode the [[DesignatedHero supposedly heroic mice]] kill the [[DesignatedVillain apparently evil cat]], turning his corpse (you can tell he died as he makes no movements, not even blinking) into a Christmas tree, plugging his tail into a electric socket, all while Christmas carols play! Is it any wonder that these creepy characters were the inspiration for the ''[[WesternAnimation/TheItchyAndScratchyShow Itchy and Scratchy]]''?

** "Undersea Urgency", in which an undersea lab is attacked by what can only be described as sabertoothed C.H.U.Ds. As the survivors of the attack are making their way to escape pods, one lady scientist stops to try and grab the body of one of the dead creatures "for future study" (with the entire group yelling at her not to go near it). Whoops! NotQuiteDead! The scene cuts to a GoryDiscretionShot, but the clear implication is that the creature ''bit the woman's face off''.
** In the same episode, creatures like dog-sized piranhas with legs got onto the submarine after EATING A WHALE TO NOTHING BUT BONES ONSCREEN, and in one scene while they were running for their lives from the creatures, a female scientist was too slow, and we got a shot of the creatures swarming her as Race was forced to slam the door shut to prevent them from getting to the rest of them all, and you hear the woman being graphically devoured, complete with squelchy crunching sounds.

** Many cartoons, especially ones directed by Creator/TexAvery and Creator/BobClampett, feature characters committing suicide by shooting themselves in the head; there was no blood though. However, Clampett's original cut of "Hare Ribbin'" took this trope UpToEleven when, [[spoiler:instead of Bugs giving a gun to a dog to kill himself, he pulls out the gun and ''shoots the dog in the mouth'']]. [[WhatTheHellHero Understandably]], the Hays Office wasn't pleased with this ending.

This technically means he dies three times!



** In "Bride of the Pastmaster," we see two cyclopes fall off of a cliff. The second one gets a SoundOnlyDeath as he plummets out of sight, but the first one we get to see actually fall all the way down and hit the bottom. We also see the clay figurine representing him back in the Pastmaster's tower explode, just to hammer home how dead he is.

** In "Bride of the Pastmaster," an oil-eating sea monster has a "Match Head Missile" fired down its throat. When the missile hits the oil in its stomach, the creature blows up from the inside out, and parts of its flesh, as well as a ''lot'' of oil, splatter all over the Turbokat.

We also see the clay figurine representing him back in the Pastmaster's tower explode, just to hammer home how dead he is.is.
** The two "harpies" (what the [[AllThereInTheScript model sheets]] call the little dragons) in that episode are accidentally hit by the bigger dragon's fire breath and burn away to ashes fully onscreen.
** The dragon himself is killed with the mystical Dragon Sword, which has been tied to a missile. This one sort of straddles the line. Although the dragon's death is depicted as simply him disappearing in a bright flash of light (complete with a BigNo from the Pastmaster), the fact they show the sword's blade piercing him onscreen is pretty violent, even if there's no blood.


Added DiffLines:

** In the same episode, the Pastmaster gets dropped into lava as the pyramid around him collapses, complete with another BigNo (which is kind of his thing). We see him splash into the molten rock and go under.
** In "Volcanus Erupts!", the title monster, a huge fire demon, has a bomb stuck on him. When it goes off, he is violently exploded into several fiery chunks, and his [[AnArmAndALeg severed hand]] (clutching Razor) flies through the air and lands in the ocean.
