* Being a site based around the concept of AnyoneCanDie, ''SurvivalOfTheFittest'' occasionally falls into this trope when the AxCrazy characters get "creative". At times the scenes can turn into {{Narm}} either because it [[YouFailBiologyForever isn't possible in real life]] or just because it wasn't written well. Other times, though, it ''works''. An example from v4 would be the majority of [[MadArtist Sarah Atwell's]] kills, one of which involves rigging up a death trap where if the poor victim even moves, he gets shot in the head, [[BetterToDieThanBeKilled which he decides not to take part]].

** Frank himself was probably at his most brutal in the "Slavers" arc in ''Comicbook/ThePunisherMAX''. With the AssholeVictims smuggling women into the US to be sex slaves, including an hours-long gang rape on each slave to start out, you don't really feel for them at all when Frank, among other punishments, throws a woman who oversaw this horror into shatterproof glass enough times that finally ''the frame bends enough'' for the pane to fall out and she plummets to her death. Or when Frank gets information from a slaver by disemboweling him and hanging his intestines from a tree ''with them still attached''. The interrogation is implied to begin at sunrise which makes things worse when Frank casually mentions in the next issue that it took him until '''NOON''' to bleed out.

* Lots and lots of Creator/ECComics stories, often as KarmicDeath for good measure.

*** What he did to Alex Luthor. He ambushed him in a dark alley, sprayed him with acid that wound up melting ''half his goddamn face off'', shocked him with an electric joy-buzzer, and finally shot him dead as Lex insulted him for his myopia and lack of foresight in not allowing the Joker to join the Society in the first place. Oh, and Alex? [[AssholeVictim Deserved it]].

* ''{{Planescape}}''. If the Lady is displeased with you and [[MakeAnExampleOfThem wants to publicly voice said displeasure]] she lets her shadow fall over you. The victims die from having the skin and flesh flayed from their bones while still alive and capable of feeling every last moment of it, with the end result being little more than a ragged pile of leaky meat.

* ComicBook/ThePunisher has his share of brutal kills, but the one that takes the cake is his own RasputinianDeath in "[[ComicBook/DarkReign The List]]", he continues trying to stab Daken after - in less than a half hour - having being shot, hit with grenades, punched around, cut across the chest by Daken, broke a leg, getting his throat slashed, lost an arm and about 3 gallons of blood.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles'': Syndrome. Who honestly wants to be run through a ''jet turbine''? '''Feet first!'''
** Even worse, the same thing happened to teenage super-heroine Stratogale. At least she went in head first, so we can hope that her brain was blended before she could feel anything else.
