Added DiffLines:

* ''Franchise/UltraSeries'': Franchise creator Creator/EijiTsuburaya disliked this trope ("don't show anything too violent", he would say to his crew), but a few evidently slipped past his radar (''Series/{{Ultraman}}'' featured quite a number of monster appendages being dismembered). After his death though, series got even more violent, often with {{Family Unfriendly Death}}s. ''Series/UltramanAce'', ''Series/UltramanTaro'', and ''Series/UltramanLeo'' are stellar examples of this, but it was significantly toned down later on.

** In "Bubbled", the Ruby nicknamed "Eyeball" ''tries to stab Steven.''

** In "Bubbled", the Ruby nicknamed "Eyeball" ''tries tries to stab Steven.''''stab Steven with a chisel.''
** However, all of this pales in comparison to [[spoiler: [[FamilyUnfriendlyDeath Lars's death.]] When Lars jumps on top of a Shattering Robonoid, it ''explodes''. Lars goes flying into a wall with a SickeningCrunch and falls a good thirty feet to the floor. While this is an example of BloodlessCarnage, it doesn't make the scene any less shocking, especially since it comes ''entirely'' out of nowhere.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy'' mostly averts this, having more of a slapstick type of violence that's over-the-top, yet somewhat tame. However, [[spoiler:''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddysBigPictureShow'' reveals the kids' injuries from the Eds' latest scam: Jonny with a ''bear trap on his head'', Nazz with almost all of her hair fallen off and wearing a magician's box, Kevin looking like he was ''set on fire'', and a chunk of Rolf's torso and arm ''bitten off'', as well as a ''thin, long lump on his head''. Jesus, ''what was the Eds' scam that caused those injuries in the first place?!'']]
** [[spoiler:However, that's nothing compared to the horrifying torture Eddy receives in the hands of his older brother, who ''twists Eddy's leg'' in a way that well past comical and a step higher to horror! The fact that Eddy begs in agony to stop just exacerbates the situation.]]



"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.

* ''Series/DoctorWho'' ExpandedUniverse novels:
** One of the reasons the BBC gave for the terminating the Literature/DoctorWhoNewAdventures novels was that they had gone overboard on the sex 'n' violence. The BBC Literature/EighthDoctorAdventures that followed included such stories as ''The City of the Dead'', where the Doctor does horrible things to his broken leg, and ''Interference'', where he spends most of the first book being pointlessly[[note]]his guards probably didn't even care what he knew[[/note]] tortured in a Saudi cell.
** The Target Novelisations, which ''were'' aimed at children, weren't particularly fluffy either. "The Twin Dilemma" is about as pointlessly violent as ''Series/DoctorWho'' ever got, but the book contains three pages of extremely graphic description of Peri being strangled by the Doctor, dwelling particularly on the feeling of thumbs driving down into her throat and a description of her gagging on her tongue.

* In fact, the {{Franchise/Transformers}} franchise has a history of this, and ''BeastWars'' is no exception. It was rare for an episode to end without at least one or two cast members (one of whom was usually [[TheChewToy Waspinator]]) having been grievously wounded during its runtime.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Manga/HunterXHunter'' looks family-friendly at first, thanks to its vibrant character designs and the general ages of the main cast. Then people start getting picked off, and ''messily'', in the Hunter Exams, and one of the protagonists [[spoiler: rips a serial killer's heart out of their chest.]] Whenever the Phantom Troupe are involved, sweeping amounts of brutal and sudden deaths occur, [[MauveShirt even to named characters,]] and by the time the [[KnightOfCerebus Chimera Ants]] pop up much later in the series, it's not even remotely pretending to be family-friendly anymore, such as when a minor character [[spoiler: is shot in the head, blasted repeatedly afterwards, and her corpse summarily devoured while skirting the limits of GoryDiscretionShot.]] At that point, AnyoneCanDie is in full effect.
