* While ProfessionalWrestling is not a real competitive sport, it can still be viewed as a blood sport spectacle, as the participants suffer significant injuries even when faking greater injuries during their performance. "Hardcore" matches in particular are focused on the participants dealing grisly and very real damage to themselves.

[[GarbageWrestler "Hardcore" matches matches]] in particular are focused on the participants dealing grisly and very real damage to themselves. This is why the Wrestling/{{WWE}} had to put DontTryThisAtHome messages on all their [=DVDs=], as during the Wrestling/AttitudeEra, pro wrestling ran into controversy over fans imitating what they saw on television (without the training that the pros had) in the form of BackyardWrestling, typically getting themselves grievously injured in the process.

* Wrestling/{{CZW}}, while not quite to the level as most of the previously mentioned promotions that came before, still might be the single most violent wrestling promotion in the history of USA. Imagine Wrestling/{{ECW}} but with the violence and sadism factor [[UpToEleven pushed to the roof]]. That's [=CZW=] in a nutshell. At the very least, it managed to get electric powered weed whackers banned from all sporting events in the nation, and it's "Cage Of Death" was good enough for Big Japan to copy(but of course, [[UpToEleven make even more dangerous]]).[[/folder]]

* IWA Japan, and offshoot of an offshoot of one of FMW's inspirations in WWC, divided its time mainly by using what it already knew and copying what FMW brought, but did have the crazy idea to have matches in pools being heated to a boil, to see who could stay in the longest.
* Big Japan Pro Wrestling, longest lasting successor, had such innovations as "heat stones"(space heaters wrapped in barbed wire), piranhas tanks, scorpions and buzz saws.

* In the ''SwordOfTruth'' series, Emperor Jagang brings to the world the game of Ja'La, which is like football without pads and no penalties for unnecessary roughness...or unnecessary murder. Even attempting to have an opposing player assassinated before the game is considered fair play.

** ''F-Zero X'' and onwards makes mentions to various safety features added after a [[NoodleIncident Great Accident]]. It is unclear what these are, and strangely, at the same time, the player now gets rewarded for killing his foes (with extra continues) as opposed to merely having less competition.

* Interestingly enough, motorsports had a reputation of being this up until relatively recently. For example, up to the late 70s, it was expected that up to 20% of the drivers in Formula1 would either die or get horribly injured before the end of the season.
