->''"SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker in our show could not kill, because it was a children's television show. Instead of him murdering people we would have him give 'em that hideous Joker grin, which in its own way is almost worse".''

** In the final battle between Naruto and Sasuke near the end of the they both end up severely bruised. They also [[spoiler:blow one of each other's hand off and nearly bleed out, with only Sakura's arrival saving them]].



* Early chapters of ''Manga/PokemonAdventures'' were rather graphic, such as when Giovanni froze a Pokemon before splitting it into pieces.

* ''Manga/VenusVersusVirus'' is usually rather tame however in order to go into [[SuperpoweredEvilSide Berserker mode]] she must shoot herself with a special bullet. It's not bloody though and it doesn't appear to hurt. One instance has obvious suicide allusions as she puts a gun to her head and shoots

* ''Manga/DeadmanWonderland'' is [[{{gorn}} notoriously violent]] to the point where Creator/{{Toonami}} used it to show off how its revived block wasn't kid friendly anymore. Despite this it was run in a magazine geared at middle and high schoolers.

** There's also when Gaara crushes some people to death with sand, causing a huge rain-shower of blood to fall. The anime had to make the blood black instead of red, or even Japanese censors probably would have vetoed it. In Shippuuden, a giant chameleon summon is sliced in half with predictably horrible results, but here the blood was red though it vanished along with the chameleon.

* ''Manga/GunslingerGirl'' is about ChildSoldiers used by the Italian government. Obviously it doesn't shy from showing characters get shot and beat up though it isn't normally done ''too'' graphically.

* The ''Literature/{{Redwall}}'' series is another fantasy TalkingAnimal young adult/children's series that is also filled with [[FamilyUnfriendlyDeath bloody death]] and violence. Some more gruesome deaths (mostly of villains) include: being boiled to death by scalding water, having their spine snapped and ''still living for hours after'', being asphyxiated after paralysis, getting shredded to pieces by pike fish, getting force-drowned, being eaten alive by giants snakes, being eaten alive by [[CarnivoreConfusion cannibals]], being eaten alive by spider crabs, being thrown onto a row of sharpened javelins, being flayed alive, getting a smashed-in skull, being cloven in two with a sword or axe, being stung to death by thousands of bees, and the usual [[LosingYourHead beheading]], [[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice impaling]], and [[PoisonedWeapons poisoning]]. Several good guys die this way as well.

* ''Literature/DarkestPowers'' is supposed to be a LighterAndSofter alternative to the adult aimed ''Literature/TheOtherworld'' series. It's only mildly more kid friendly overall (mostly simply removing sexual content and profanity). For example the series has graphic descriptions of Chloe's budding {{necromancer}} abilities.
* ''Literature/OutOfTheDust'' has some [[BodyHorror pretty graphic]] descriptions of what happens to Billie's mother after [[spoiler:she accidentally douses her with kerosene]].

** The writer, Karen Hesse, discussed this trope and WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids at her [[DeathByNewbery Newbary Medal acceptance speech]] in 1998:
-->Occasionally, adult readers grimace at the events documented in ''Out of the Dust''. They ask, how can this book be for young readers? I ask, how can it not? The children I have met during my travels around the country have astonished me with their perception, their intelligence, their capacity to take in information and apply it to the greater picture, or take in the greater picture and distill it down to what they need to know.''
-->Young readers are asking for substance. They are asking for respect. They are asking for books that challenge, and confirm, and console. They are asking for us to listen to their questions and to help them find their own answers. If we cannot attend always to those questions, to that quest for answers, whether our work is that of librarians, writer, teacher, publisher, or parent, how can they forgive us? And yet they do, every day (...)

* ''WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2012'' has several examples. While BloodlessCarnage applies, it's still quite shocking:
** In "The Gauntlet," the Shredder dishes out an absolutely ''brutal'' NoHoldsBarredBeatdown on the Turtles, including kicking Raphael into an electrified sign and Michelangelo being crushed and stuck under pieces of said sign.
** Slash in "Slash and Destroy," who severely wounds Donnie offscreen, smashes Mikey around, and has an absolutely brutal fight against Raph. Even when Leo joins the fray, he's quickly and painfully smacked off to one side.
** In the second season finale, Leatherhead violently mauls Shredder by shaking him like a rag doll in his powerful jaws.
** In the third season finale, Shredder [[spoiler:runs Splinter through with his blades, killing him.]]
** In "The Tale of Tiger Claw," it's revealed in a flashback that Alopex cut off Tiger Claw's tail, and currently wears it ''as a belt''. Not only that, but at the end of the episode, she slices off Tiger Claw's right arm, ''on-screen'', as a warning that she could just as easily have taken his life.
** In "Requiem," [[spoiler:Rahzar is dragged to the bottom of a river by Leatherhead and drowned. Splinter is killed by Shredder once again, stabbed through the back, and this time his body is flung off of a high building, eliminating any chance of survival.]]
** In "Owari," Shredder [[spoiler:is killed when his head is sliced off by Leo, who then carries it with him and throws it on the ground contemptuously.]]

Added DiffLines:

"Magical Golden Singing Cheeses" is known by many fans as the single most violent episode of Ren and Stimpy. It includes a scene where a court jester scrapes his elbow with a cheese grader, then rubbing it with a lemon, and then poring salt on it. Another even more disturbing scene comes later when Stimpy accidently stabs a giant's toe with a crow bar, prying off the giant's toe nail.

*** An ad-lib by TomBaker to avert what he saw as this in "The Face of Evil" led to one of the Fourth Doctor's most memorable, CrazyAwesome moments. The script called for him to take a man hostage, pull a knife on him, and threaten to slit his throat unless the aliens dropped their weapons. What he actually does in the show is take a man hostage, pull a ''jelly baby'' on him, and [[OnceKilledAManWithANoodleImplement threaten to kill him with it]] unless the aliens dropped their weapons. In both versions, they are terrified and do as he says.

* Its distant sequel series, ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'' was no stranger to violence and it's movie, ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyondTheReturnOfJoker'', was even worse. There are two different death scenes for different characters, one for [[spoiler:The Joker]] and [[spoiler:Bonk, the pale Jokerz]]. The former is either shot in the chest with his own [[spoiler:bang-flag]] gun by his hostage or slips and falls, which entangles him in electrical wires over a pool of water and fries him alive. The latter is shot with a [[spoiler:bang-flag]] gun or sprayed with [[spoiler: Joker Venom gas]] as a warning to the rest.
