* 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.

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

** Even worse, the same thing happened to teenage super-heroine Stratogale.

** 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.

Added DiffLines:

* The ''SCPFoundation'' has so many examples, they really could not possibly all be listed here, but one standout example is [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-823 SCP-823]] is a AmusementParkOfDoom with an unexplained anomaly that has a tendency of killing the people in it in horrific ways. This includes mass decapitation via roller coaster, suffocating a costumed mascot with costume stuffing, PsychicAssistedSuicide by forcing one of the Foundation's soldiers to disassemble and swallow the parts to their gun, and quite possible the most bizarre, "Cause of death: suicide caused by forced sexual entry through left eye, resulting in unsurvivable brain trauma."

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.]]

* 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]].
