** The mid 70's period with Creator/RobertHolmes as script editor and Creator/TomBaker as the Doctor had everything from blood squibs to impalement to severed heads, with stories like ''The Brain of Morbius'' and ''The Robots of Death'' pushing the envelope. Seasons 21-22, featuring some incredibly violent stories like ''Attack of the Cybermen'' and ''Resurrection of the Daleks'', were also infamously brutal and contributed in part to the show's 18 month hiatus. Suffice to say that the pre-2005 series got a way with a lot that wouldn't fly now. Even then, both of those eras were terminated by large-scale media criticism and consequent ExecutiveMeddling.

** Leela stands out as being an unusually violent companion. There had always been ActionHero companions in ''Doctor Who'', but usually they stuck to wrestling, {{Flynning}} or were generally kept bloodless (for example, Jamie had a knife, but was never allowed to stab people with it). Leela, meanwhile, was allowed to knife villains and poison them with thorns. It didn't help that her {{Stripperific}} leather outfit made her a lot HotterAndSexier than the other companions had been up to that point, as well. And the story she was introduced in had the Doctor threaten people with a crossbow, throw a maneating beast onto someone (with a BondOneLiner) and kick a man into an electrical fence. Both viewers and Creator/TomBaker felt Leela was too violent for the show, and she was toned down considerably in the next season.
** Not that its parent show hasn't toyed with this trope.

** ''Series/{{Torchwood}}'' episode 1 features a man being killed by an alien. Whilst this happens blood spews out from him as though he were a hose. This could be seen as part of the show's attempt to look DarkerAndEdgier than its parent series.

* Easy to mod into ''VideoGame/DukeNukem3D'' through editing GAME.CON in a text editor. Just don't go too overboard or killing an enemy with the rocket launcher can crash the game.
** Also, compare ''VideoGame/DukeNukemManhattanProject'' to any of the earlier platformer instalments in the franchise.
** Or compare ''VideoGame/DukeNukem3D'' to it's ''predecessors.'' Yes, like ''[[VideoGame/DukeNukemForever Forever]]'', the title was a ''pun.'' [[ThirdIs3D This is actually the sequel to a pair of action platformers]] [[EarlyInstallmentWeirdness that bear little-to-no resemblance at all to ''Duke Nukem 3D''.]]

* The Fanfic/BoundDestiniesTrilogy is a lot more graphic than the three Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda games that each story is based around; especially in the case of ''Blood and Spirit'', which is quite gory despite the fact that it's set in the generally light world of [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword Skyward Sword]].

* ''Film/ForkliftDriverKlaus'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cUwki29-rYQ (watch it here)]], a parody safety video featuring bisections, decapitations, and impalements, certainly qualifies.

* ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSeed Gundam SEED]]'' and ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 Gundam 00]]'', while ''[[Anime/MobileSuitVictoryGundam Victory Gundam]]'' can be quite bloody, the superweapons were extremely brutal and you watched people explode to a fine mist.

* They seem tame now, but the Film/HammerHorror films were considered quite a bit bloodier and gorier (not to mention HotterAndSexier) than the UniversalHorror films they were re-imagining.

* ''[[Series/{{Roots|2016}} Roots (2016)]]'' is this compared to the original 1977 miniseries. While the original was groundbreaking for its harrowing depiction of slavery, the remake holds no punches in its brutality largely due to it being on cable. For example, Kunta Kinte being tortured into saying his slave name is a longer and far more brutal scene in remake's first episode than it was in the original miniseries.
