* Each of the "executions" in ''VisualNovel/Danganronpa'' is specifically tailored to the guilty party. For example, the guilty party of the first case, Leon Kuwata, is a baseball player who is chained to a post and bludgeoned to death by baseballs.

** From VisualNovel/DanganRonpaV3, the executions are [[DarkerAndEdgier much more brutal this time]] to the point where Leon's execution looks a lot more peaceful in comparison. [[TheHeroDies Kaede, the Ultimate Pianist and the initial protagonist,]] is stoned and asphyxiated to death by a rope while playing a giant piano with her body, and her corpse is later destroyed when the spiked piano cover closes on her (it's even worse when you learn '''''she wasn't even the culprit'''''). Maid Kirumi is forced to climb a thorny vine, 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 before his ghost is pelted with salt and melts, ceasing to exist, and entomologist Gonta is stung in the face by wasps, impaled by a much larger insect, and incinerated with a flamethrower. ''Yeesh.''

** [[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 (and accidentally [[EyeScream slices out the right eye]] of her friend/master Fuyuhiko Kuzuryuu when he tries to rescue her). Some of the murders also count. Pity poor Ibuki, who gets strangled to death and then hung, not to mention what happens to [[ThanatosGambit Komaeda]].

* ''Machinama/RedVsBlue'': The BigBad of Season 15, [[spoiler:Temple]], killed off at least 10 Freelancer agents by luring them in his basement, locking them in their armour and leaving them to die of starvation and thirst. The longest one of them lasted until dying was 8 days, 11 hours.

* ''VisualNovel/{{Phantasmagoria}}''. Carno's murder of his wives ranges from {{Narm}} (how can someone's head be twisted 360 degrees ''[[YouFailBiologyForever before]]'' the neck snaps?) to absolutely horrifying (ever wonder what death by [[ForceFeeding force-feeding]] [[NauseaFuel looks like?]])

In the 2017 Broadway version production goes further with this trope with both demises. [[spoiler:Violet Beauregarde explodes offstage onto her dad and Veruca Salt gets dismembered and decapitated by squirrels]]. Wonka does mention Veruca [[spoiler:could be put back together with a gluestick by the Oompa Loompas]] and Violet [[spoiler: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.

-->'''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?

*** However, this trope is ''actually averted'' for Kaito as he died peacefully and his execution was much LighterAndSofter compared to the game's other executions.

*** However, this trope is ''actually averted'' for Kaito as he died peacefully and his execution was much LighterAndSofter compared to the game's other executions. Also a subversion since he was ''meant'' to undergo one of these, but his virus killed him mid-execution, much to Monokuma's chagrin.
