* The death of Jezebel also deserves a special mention for sheer graphic description and squickiness: first, thrown out a window, then run over by a chariot, and then eaten by dogs; however, it was a KarmicDeath.

* In ''{{ComicBook/Uber}}'', the American superhuman Colossus tries to take on the German "living battleship" Sieglinde when the Nazis attack Paris. Colossus ambushes Sieglinde and at first seems to be winning against her, knocking her to the ground and strangling her...until she rips both of his arms off and uses her matter-disruption powers to twist his entire body into a gory sculpture of pulped flesh and shattered bone. By the end, he's so mutilated it's almost impossible to tell he was once human. The worst thing of all? He's ''still alive''. His skull is so tough it takes five hours for the Allies to euthanise him with an industrial drill.
** In another scene, Hitler has another of his "battleships" the sadistic Markus - burn off the face of a disobedient general. The man's death is depicted in loving detail. Similar deaths are suffered by thousands of ordinary soldiers who go up against the battleships.

** [[spoiler:Siegfried]] is put down this way in ''Invasion #7'', combined with DeathOfAThousandCuts. It takes the combined efforts of a team of SuperSpeed Zephyr Ubers to [[SlashedThroat slit his throat]], his disruption halo backfiring on him to blow up half of his face and the subsequent massive blood loss to finally do him in.

* ''{{Exalted}}'': There are a lot of means to kill someone in cool and fascinating way, but the Abyssals make an art out of it with Illustrative Overkill Technique: you kill someone in such [[{{Gorn}} a gruesome and nauseating way]] that anyone watching it will [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere start running away from you,]] [[NauseaFuel most likely while vomiting their bowels out]].

* The stage musical adaptation of ''Theatre/CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory'' (both the Broadway and West End productions) goes further with this trope than [[DarkerAndEdgier any previous incarnation of the story]], particularly with Violet Beauregarde and Veruca Salt. [[spoiler: Violet explodes after she turns into a blueberry and Veruca is sent down the nut chute with her father to an incinerator]], leading to a DwindlingParty. Mr. Wonka doesn't care though. While he mentions that Violet could be put NotQuiteBackToNormal, he pretty much implies Veruca's {{Pun toast}}.

In the 2017 Broadway version production goes further with this trope with both demises. [[Violet Beauregarde explodes offstage onto her dad and Veruca Salt gets dismembered and decapitated by squirrels]]. Wonka does mention [[spoiler:Veruca could be put back together with a gluestick by the Oompa Loompas]] and [[spoiler:Violet could be scooped out of the pulping pond before she ferments]], but he still shows some apathy if they don't recover. This could be part of the reason of [[DawsonCasting casting of adults]] in the roles of the four bratty children. Imagine these things happening to ACTUAL children.

* In the 2017 Broadway version of ''Theatre/CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory'' goes further with this trope than [[DarkerAndEdgier any previous incarnation of the story.]] This is particularly true of [[spoiler:Veruca Salt, who gets dismembered by squirrels]] and [[spoiler:Violet Beauregard, who explodes after eating Wonka's gum.]] Even worse, there doesn't seem to be any indication that either will be revived even NotQuiteBackToNormal. For all we know, they really did die.

-->'''Mr. Wonka''': [regarding Veruca's demise] We mustn't mourn. That's not what Veruca got what she wanted. And Veruca always got what she wanted, didn't she?

** From VisualNovel/NewDanganRonpaV3, the executions are [[DarkerAndEdgier much more brutal this time]] to the point where Leon's execution looks like a cakewalk in comparison. [[TheHeroDies Kaede, the SHSL Pianist and the initial protagonist,]] is asphyxiated by a rope while playing a giant piano with her body, and her corpse is later destroyed by a spiked piano cover. Maid Kirumi is lacerated by buzzsaws and falls to her death after reaching a dead end in an attempt to escape the school, anthropologist Korekiyo is boiled alive at ridiculously high temperatures, and entomologist Gonta is stung in the face by wasps, impaled by a much larger insect, and incinerated with a flamethrower. ''Yeesh.''

*** Kokichi and Ryoma also died very gruesome deaths, the former was shot with crossbow bolts, poisoned, and ''crushed by a hydraulic press'', while the latter was drowned and StrippedToTheBone by piranhas. The worst part? '''They allowed themselves to die in such a mannner''', but for different reasons: Ryoma was a suicidal DeathSeeker, while Kaito wanted to save Maki from being executed after she poisoned Kokichi, so Kokichi agreed to let Kaito murder him as a part of his plan to derail the killing game.
