* ''WesternAnimation/{{Coraline}}'', is animated, and is technically a family film ([[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids though that is still debatable]]), it's really ''not'' a movie to show your pre-schooler. Unless he has no problems with spider-witches sewing black buttons into children's eyes and then eating the children themselves...

** Sasuke fighting Naruto and delivering a head-first piledriver to him on solid rock from over twelve feet in the air, clearly smashing his head into a bloody impact, his lifeless body dropping limply in the water. The Nine Tails makes him all better, but the visual of it is still nightmarish.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'' practically ravolves around this trope. AxCrazy Mr. Cat will use a variety of weapons on [[NighInvulnerable Quack Quack]], and in the end he himself will be horribly beaten up (or worse) by Bad Kaeloo.

* The violence in ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' can get downright gruesome at times, as characters are beheaded, their limbs are amputated, they are impaled, crushed under heavy debris, and in one example from ''Steel Ball Run'', completely obliterated into tiny cube-shaped pieces.

Someone at Shueisha (or Araki himself) seems to have caught on to this, as from ''Steel Ball Run'' on, the series was published in a magazine targeted at adults.

* If the first two ''Franchise/IndianaJones'' movies were made nowadays, they'd get PG-13 ratings. In fact, ''[[Film/IndianaJonesAndTheTempleOfDoom The Temple of Doom]]'' and ''Film/{{Gremlins}}'' were the reason why the PG-13 rating was invented (and the [[Film/IndianaJonesAndTheLastCrusade third]] and [[Film/IndianaJonesAndTheKingdomOfTheCrystalSkull fourth]] movies earned it).

* ''VideoGame/AmericanMcGeesAlice'' is not exactly directed to children, but rather grownups' childhood memories of the (already creepy and somewhat disturbing) Alice children's book (or its Disney counterpart, still creepy). The rather naive and innocent protagonist does disturbing things like decapitating card soldiers and burning one of the book's characters, just to give two examples. The fates of the Dormouse and March Hare is also graphic. They get tortured and experimented on by the Mad Hatter in perpetuity.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoV'' parodies this with the [[Radio/GTARadio in-universe animated show]] ''Kung Fu Rainbow Lazer Force''. Ostensibly a [[TheMoralSubstitute Christian version]] of ''Franchise/PowerRangers'', the show features its protagonists violently murdering people for their sinful behavior, complete with a healthy dollop of {{Gorn}} -- and that's before you get into the show's [[TheFundamentalist questionable religious and cultural politics]]. The opening theme tune even has the characters proclaiming that "sex is bad, and violence is good!"

* The film adaptation of ''Film/TheGoldenCompass'' was targeted to the same audience of TheChroniclesOfNarnia, and yet, despite the DisneyFication process that suffered in comparison with the book, it was still pretty violent, with people being shot and killed, and a very violent Ice bear fight. Specifically, Iorek tears off another polar bear (Ragnar)'s lower jaw , and then bites at the enormous mouthhole that's left. All onscreen.

* ''Film/AliceInWonderland'': Long before Alice fights the Jabberwock, you see why you ''do not'' underestimate the Dormouse in battle; she is very good at [[ColossusClimb climbing onto any enemy in a fight]] and then [[EyeScream going for the eyes]].

*** "The Edge of Destruction" has a still-alarming scene where Susan (driven temporarily mad thanks to a NegativeSpaceWedgie) lunges at Ian with a pair of surgical scissors, then suddenly shreds her bed to pieces with them before collapsing onto it, crying and screaming.

This led to the first of the many debates in the media over the years about whether the show was too violent.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/XMenApocalypse'':
** During the DistantPrologue (which is set in AncientEgypt), several of En Sabah Nur's followers, including his original Horsemen, are either crushed by debris, blasted into skeletons or set on fire--all onscreen.
** Another example from the abovementioned scene; the mutant En Sabah Nur is planning to possess (played by Creator/OscarIsaac) has a HealingFactor, and Apocalypse's servants demonstrate this by ''slicing the mutant's chest with a knife'', revealing red tissue underneath before the wound heals.
** When the ground under Magneto's coworkers is simultaneously dissolved and then reset by Apocalypse, the end result is an assortment of limbs (some of which are still twitching) sticking out of the ground.
** Apocalypse decapitates a trio of Cairo men shortly after meeting Storm, and we see their heads fall to the ground onscreen.
** Blood-splatter galore during [[spoiler:Wolverine's rampage]].
** Mystique [[spoiler:slicing Apocalypse's throat]].
