* 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.

** One episode has Cynthia ordering her Garchomp to put her claws to a Galactic members throat, making it very clear that Cynthia will invoke mortal damage if needed. This is a rare case of non-comedic violence against humans and is more aggressive than the anime usually goes for.

* ''Literature/ArashiNoYoruNi'' is a heartwarming tale about the [[OddFriendship friendship]] between a wolf and a goat. Five minutes in, a goat bites off a wolf's ear, splatting blood over the screen. (Not the same goat and wolf, thankfully, but his [[MamaWolf mother]]) And it doesn't end there!

* ''Webcomic/{{Lackadaisy}}'': Cute, big-eyed anthropomorphic kitties... hacking each other to bits with hatchets, smashing each other in the face with a riflebutt, and pumping each other full of lead.
** While the comic isn't ''really'' meant for kids, the fact that the cast consists of very cute anthro-cats plus the fact that the series is often compared to the cute family film ''Cats Don't Dance'' (mainly due to the art style and, once again, the cats) moves it into Family Unfriendly Violence Territory.



* The entire ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'' series veers between this and BloodyHilarious. Every fight scene with robots involves SymbolicBlood and HighPressureBlood to a ridiculous degree. In numerous cases Jack ends the fight liberally soaked in oil and standing on a mountain of dismembered MechaMook parts. And also in battle sometimes Jack would get full of bloody cuts all over his body.
** This is actually a parody/homage of samurai films' brutal deaths of combatants.

She was [[WhatCouldHaveBeen meant to die]], but since she's the reason, or a part of the reason, most people watch the show they revamped the ending to make her live.
* ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' was full of this especially in the earlier episodes, the most violent things tended to happen to the monsters they fought they sometimes got decapitated, torn in half, impaled, or ripped limb from limb.
** One of the most disturbing examples is where the girls get addicted to candy to the point where it's treated like a drug addiction, when Mojo Jojo betrays their trust of rewarding them with the candy by stealing it they beat him to the point where he is hideously deformed and has blood dripping from his mouth. They seem to leave Mojo in that state A LOT.

* ''WesternAnimation/SamAndMaxFreelancePolice'' was working with WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids source material and adapting it for seven year olds, so had to tone down the characters' bloodier excesses ([[FamilyFriendlyFirearms and replace their guns with tanks and flamethrowers]]). It still leaks into this pretty frequently, though. An example is an episode where Sam and Max raise a baby alligator, and discover it won't eat any food except off Max's arm. His arm gets increasingly mangled throughout the episode, until eventually he mentions he's lost all sensation in it, and they both giggle about it.

** ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' does this quite a bit, too.

Victims usually sit up a moment later rubbing their foreheads, but even once you realize this pattern, the moment of impact never really gets any less cringe-inducing. Even ''Mask of the Phantasm'', which got away with blood and on-screen deaths, has a few glaring moments - most notably, Bruce getting hit in the stomach with a baseball bat, ''which was being held out by a passing motorcyclist'' and thus connected with huge amounts of force, then getting up a few seconds later without so much as a cracked rib. Or, just the {{DCAU}} in general is a very violent "kids show" (though it may not have been intended to be).

One of the stand-out examples would be Black Beetle slamming ComicBook/WonderGirl's body repeatedly against a wall for ''ten seconds'' while we get flashes to all her unconscious teammates.

* ''ComicBook/JemAndTheHolograms'' is aimed at an older audience than the source but there isn't much PG about the comic. It does contain some relatively graphic scenes though, such as [[spoiler:the aftermath of Pizzazz's car crash]].



** In ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'' Elsa was dangerously close to killing two of Hans' guards. This has been arguee why the film has a PG rating.

* 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.
