* ''Wiki/SCPFoundation'' has [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-2206 SCP-2206]], a series of radio broadcasts of baseball games from an alternate universe, one where violent fights between players are both common and expected, assassination attempts have been made on ''entire teams'', players include [[FantasyKitchenSink ghosts, cyborgs and genetically-altered humans]], and one team plays home games in the caldera of an active volcano.

** A lot of Kunio's sports games are like this, to varying degrees. Particularly notable are events in the track-and-field competitions where the whole goal is the beat up the competition, as well as the footrace events, where weapons (up to and including bombs) are scattered all over the track and it is not unusual for someone to stop to pummel an opponent into submission. And then there's Hockey and Soccer games where the best way to score is to send a powerful enough shot right at (and right through) the goalie.

* Ratings Games in ''LightNovel/HighSchoolDXD'', the arena combat sport used by Devil [[ChessMotif Kings]] to settle disputes. Several different formats are seen, but all actually have significant restrictions in place to prevent actual loss of life - pieces are "taken" rather than killed and retired to a holding area, medical attention is available after the fight, and attacks that could kill the target outright are heavily restricted or forbidden. Interestingly, the only time a no-holds-barred Ratings Game is seen, it was an entirely genuine attempt at good sportsmanship (a RunningGag is the protagonist team being horribly skewed toward overpowered nukes with precious little tactical acumen to go around).

* The anime ''StarshipGirlYoukoYamamoto'' centers around a game that replaced war in which teams of small, agile spacecraft dogfight each other. Fortunately, highly advanced teleportation technology means that the pilots rarely die.

* ''[[Manga/BakusouKyoudaiLetsAndGo Bakusou Kyoudai Let's & Go!!]]'' provides a A LighterAndSofter version as they're toying with toys rather than real people. The show starts up with a typical mini 4WD racing competitions, but later, there's a BigBad and his team who introduce battle parts to be used in racing. ''Kids'' are encouraged to make their toys mini weapons to crash and destroy oppornent's cars. Since the plot has more than one of the heroes' machine trashed by these rules, and since they have a believe that [[SlidingScaleOfLivingToys their mini 4WDs have souls.]] They take it a SeriousBusiness.

* The Gundam Fight from ''Anime/MobileFighterGGundam'' is described in-show as "A war based on the principles of sportsmanship", with every country in the world being represented by a MotionCaptureMecha piloted by a trained fighter. Although the battles are (usually) bloodless, the Mobile Trace system that runs the HumongousMecha feeds back any damage incurred on them back to the pilot as physical pain. Thus, for example, if your machine has its arm torn off, you will feel as though your ''own'' arm just got torn off. The fact that many such injuries are simply shrugged off as an annoyance is one of the many reasons why just about [[WorldOfBadass everybody in the show]] is a major {{Badass}}.
* ''Manga/SpaceAdventureCobra'' has a sort of "no-holds-barred" version of Base-ball called "Rug-ball" where the idea is to reach each base in one piece... Naturally there are a few deaths involved, and [[{{Badass}} naturally]] Cobra proves himself to be a spectacular player.

* From what little we know about Thrashball from the ''VideoGame/GearsOfWar'' series, it seems to be somewhat like American football, except more violent. For example, they have a record for "most number of injuries received ''during one play''".
