* Battling in ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' is usually clean and shown not to do much damage. Sometimes the violence is upped though: ** ''Anime/PokemonOrigins'' has the infamous scene where Blue's Squirtle uses Bite on Red's Charmander. It's not bloody however it is horrifyingly painful sounding. Charmander screeches in pain until Red is forced to put it back in its Pokeball. ** Early chapters of ''Manga/PokemonAdventures'' were rather graphic, such as Giovanni freezing a Pokemon before splitting into pieces. ** More than one ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' episode has a battle where a Pokémon is seriously injured or is the victim of a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown. Probably the earliest in the series might have been Ash's Vermilion City Gym battle, where on his first try Pikachu got the ever-living snot beaten out of it by Surge's Raichu. ** Hareta versus [[spoiler:Mitsumi]] in ''Manga/PokemonDiamondAndPearlAdventure'' is a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown where both he and his Pokemon both get beat up.

* 'Manga/DeadmanWonderland'' is 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.

* ''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.

* The ''Manga/YuGiOh'' manga had the Shadow Game between Marik and Mai. Remember how in [[Anime/YuGiOh the anime]], the duelists would lose memories every time they lost a monster or life points? Well, in the manga, the duelists take whatever damage is done to their monsters (it's worse when you realize that in the manga, the monsters don't disintegrate or explode when they die, like in the anime). When Mai's monster attacks Marik's, it chops its head off. So MARIK'S HEAD FALLS OFF, AND HE PICKS IT UP - STILL TALKING. It gets worse. Later Marik summons a horrific electric torture device that looks like something out of the ''Saw'' movies and uses it to electrocute Mai.

*** Happened quite a bit in the manga back when it was in its early days and the focus wasn't so much on card games, but more on Yami dealing out 'justice'. Almost all of what Yami did was Family Unfriendly Violence, but it wasn't just the bad guys that suffered, oh no. A couple of example of FUV towards the main characters includes Yugi getting ''[[http://www.onemanga.com/Yu-Gi-Oh/48/16/ hung from a chain by the Millennium Puzzle]]'', and Joey/Jonouchi being tortured ''with tazers''. Hoo boy. *** In fact, the very first "game" played in Yu-Gi-Oh involves knives... * Usually avoided by ''Anime/SailorMoon'', but [[spoiler: Sailor Venus']] death comes to mind. [[spoiler:''She gets impaled through the stomach by large stalagmites'' and then burns to death. But don't worry, she gets better]].

* ''OnePiece'' contains frequent instances of characters being shot, stabbed, slashed, savagely beaten, what have you. This is particularly jarring given the series' [[CrapsaccharineWorld cartoony look]] and the story's (supposedly) [[SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism heavily idealistic perspective]].

** What Robin does to Spandam (particularly how it's shown in the anime), and what Luffy does to Oars. [[spoiler: Both villains get attacked so savagely ''their spinal columns collapse into pieces'']]. *** [[spoiler: As a slight justification with Oars, it was the only way to defeat him.

* Allegedly, ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' received complaints about this from parents during its initial airing due to being broadcast in a time slot usually reserved for family-friendly programming. ** The fact that GAINAX allegedly had spent so much money on court costs dealing with the complaints resulted in the director and the production team having to [[GainaxEnding redo their int]][[MindScrew ended ending]] due to the unforeseen "budget constraints." * ''Anime/DragonBallZ''. For a few examples, we've got dismemberment (Frieza tearing Nail's arm ''singlehandedly'') and impalement (Dodoria once impales a Namekian warrior with his ''fist'', as does Gohan [[SuperPoweredEvilSide SSJ2]] to Bojack.) And those are just a few examples. DBZ is ''brutal''!

* ''Manga/SatouKashiNoDanganWaUchinukenai'' is a shounen manga that at first glance [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForLittleGirls looks like it could be shoujo]]. It's mostly melancholy story about ThePowerOfFriendship but it does contain two horrifying, though not too graphic, cases of violence. The first one has Nagisa and Mokuzu coming across [[spoiler:Mokuzu's deceased dog cut up and dumped in the mountains by Mokuzu's father.]] The second is even worse but is covered up by a bush, not that it leaves much to the imagination. [[spoiler:Nagisa and her older brother go into the mountains to see if Mokuzu's father really [[OffingTheOffspring kill her]]. He did, and left her dismembered body in the forest.]]

* A rather infamous issue of the British G1 ''Franchise/MyLittlePony'' comics has the backstory of the Twinkle-Eyed ponies. Applejack stumbled upon them living underground, enslaved by an evil wizard into digging for gems. The ponies had gone blind due to a lack of light. Applejack saves them when she accidentally pushes the wizard to his death. The blind ponies put gems in their eyesockets to act as eyes from then on.

* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' has Sasuke pulling Zaku's arms until they ''dislocate''. There wasn't any blood but the poor guy was screeching like there's no tomorrow. You can understand why this scares the crap out of Sakura, even though that's the guy who just stomped her into the ground a minute ago.

** Just as a side note, it is more acceptable to show violence in the cartoon The Legend of Korra than other cartoons, as it's aimed more at teenagers than little children (much like Japanese anime usually is), which is somewhat unusual for western cartoons (as western cartoons tend to be aimed at pre-teens and younger children).

He is tortured by getting shocked and beaten by a large muscular man, blood is seen trickling from his mouth and he spits some of it out, later that same man is seen lying on the floor in a puddle of blood and teeth.
