* Overmastery in ''ComicBook/WhiteSand''. Sand Mastery dehydrates the user, and when you Master too much, magic reaches for all water reserves in your body, quite literally drying you out to death.

* This was averted in''WesternAnimation/PennZeroPartTimeHero'' but it's hard to overlook the fact that [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Professor Evil Professor]] intended to have the heroes [[TheresNoKillLikeOverkill dropped in acid, disintegrated by a disintegration ray, reintegrated by a reintegration ray and pressed into decorative cubes.]]

*Also averted in ''WesternAnimation/WanderOverYonder'' albeit nearly played straight because [[BigBad Dominator]] was genuinely a Sadist with no interest in conquering the galaxy;only in destroying it and breaking people's hearts. The finale really drives this home by having her plan (and very nearly execute onscreen ) a horrific death for Sylvia, Namely impaling her with the massive drill she uses to destroy planets. Cue the self-proclaimed Awesomest Evildoer to save the day.

* In ChristopherMarlowe's ''Edward II'', the title character is impaled (onstage) through the anus with a red-hot poker -- see also the RealLife section. His (fictional) assassin, Lightborn, has a speech describing his expertise in CruelAndUnusualDeath. Although the real Edward II probably didn't actually die this way, the legend no doubt arose because it was seen as a KarmicDeath, given Edward's homosexuality. Marlowe (who was probably gay himself) writes Edward as a fairly sympathetic character, and the scene in the play is absolutely horrifying.

* ''WesternAnimation/ABugsLife'': As vile as he may have been, it's hard not to feel a bit of sympathy for Hopper given [[spoiler: how gruesome his demise (being eaten alive by birds) is]]. Even Flik and Atta are visibly disturbed when [[spoiler: he is about to die.]]

* Though there were quite a few different deaths in the OneEpisodeWonder ''KorgothOfBarbaria'', nothing matches the death of a GiantMook named [[PunnyName Scrotus]], who gets interrupted in the middle of a wonderful ToThePain[=/=]CutHisHeartOutWithASpoon speech. After the title character is unimpressed by the overly long speech, he proceeds to dish out a brutal murdering by ripping half of the mook's skin off from the ponytail straight down, tossing a full glass of alcohol into the godawful wound, [[KillItWithFire then setting the alcohol on fire]].

* The sequel, ''VisualNovel/VirtuesLastReward'' also has its share of nasty deaths, but he worst may be what happens to Dio in one route. He is locked in a medical pod as a way of holding him on suspicion of murder. The characters later return to find that his oxygen supply was cut off, and he suffocated within the pod, clutching his throat in his final moments. He likely also saw his murderer as it happened, unable to do anything about it. [[SincerityMode Couldn't have happened to a less nastier guy.]]

** [[VisualNovel/SuperDanganRonpa2 The sequel]] isn't much better. Super High School Level Chef Teruteru Hanamura, is covered in egg and breadcrumbs and ''fried alive'' in a volcano. Mikan Tsumiki, a nurse, is sent into space on a rocket shaped like a giant arm; gamer Chiaki Nanami is crushed to death by a Tetris block; animal breeder Gundam Tanaka is trampled to death by wild animals; and swordswoman Peko Pekoyama is forced to fight her way through a horde of samurai robots. Some of the murders also count. Pity poor Ibuki, who gets strangled to death and then hung, not to mention what happens to Komaeda.

** Frank himself was probably the most brutal in the "Slavers" arc in PunisherMAX. 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.

** The mutant-hating CorruptChurch the Church of Humanity captured several young mutants, sometime after the Xavier Institute was closed, including Jubilee, Skin, Magma, Bedlam, and several unnamed victims, crucifying them on the lawn of the mansion simply to MakeAnExampleOfThem. (See the RealLife section of this trope for details on this horrid execution method.) Jubilee and Magma survived due to Archangel's healing abilities; the others weren't so lucky.
