** The crew of the ''Venture'' which brings the bull rex to San Diego are all killed off-screen with little realistic cause since the ''Tyrannosaurus'' was apparently the only dinosaur on the boat. Apparently it was originally planned for raptors to be the culprits, and [[http://www.jplegacy.org/index.php?fftlwventureattack an analysis of the scene has been provided by Jurassic Park Legacy]] but still can't properly answer it. The crew is described as being "all over the place" and we're treated to a severed hand gripping the wheel in the bridge and bloody footprints as a police officer grabs the door controls and unwittingly releases the tyrannosaur.

** In full effect for the [=InGen=] mercenaries sent to bring down Indominus alongside the Raptor Squad. They all have helmet-cams and, for the first time in the series, we see raptor-induced deaths from the perspectives of both the raptors themselves ''and'' their victims. This being first-person, though, we don't see the full extent of the mutilations. One near-aversion is when one of the mercs manages to make it back to the raptor pen where Claire and her nephews are, leaving a bloody handprint on the driver-side window and then being mauled on-screen by one of the raptors, but the darkness obscures the actual injuries and blood.

** Vic Hoskins' death. When Delta the velociraptor suddenly shows up, he tries to get her to back down by saying they're on the same side. After a moment where it seems like she just might, she chomps down on his hand and the other characters in the scene make a break for it. The next shot shows Hoskins being mauled by Delta, obscured by the corner of a wall, followed by a spatter of blood on a window next to them.



** Averted with Rexy the tyrannosaur as she loses the first round of her fight with Indominus, getting noticeably bloodied and clearly in pain. Notably, though, Rexy survives and injures Indominus just as badly with help from Blue the velociraptor.

** ''Film/JurassicWorld'' continues the tradition starting with two workers at the Indominus paddock: the first is grabbed by the dinosaur's dextrous hands, and the camera cuts to the control room as his scream is cut off, followed by the sound of bones crunching and then a scene at the paddock of the other worker panicking at the sight of Indominus ripping the poor man apart as she eats him, and arguable aversion since she's seen ripping off one of his limbs. Outside the paddock, the other worker--in no shape to run further--gets bitten from the top by Indominus and pulled off-screen, but he's eaten off-screen and when Indominus is searching for Owen, his blood is on her snout. Like Nash in ''Jurassic Park ///'', it gets bonus points for a scary death because he's clearly terrified, kissing a crucifix around his neck as he prays she doesn't find him.
** Arguably averted with the Asset Control Unit team sent to capture Indominus: Katashi Hamada is killed first when Indominus steps on him, though with no blood, most of the others that are killed also get it more bloodlessly, and Miller--the last one to die in the scene--gets chomped on by Indominus as he tries to hold her off with a shotgun, cutting away as soon as she bites down. Special mention goes to one who's picked up by Indominus and lifted into the air, with the camera focusing on him as she bites and his blood falls onto the camera, obscured by branches. Most of the deaths in the scene are discretion shots by cutting back to the control room to show [[TheDeadHaveNames pictures and names of each person next to heart monitors flatlining as they're killed]].
** Totally averted with poor Zara, who's juggled between a bunch of pteranodons in the air, falls into the lagoon, is fought over by them ''again'', and is finally eaten by the mosasaur along with the pteranodon trying to carry her off.
** In full effect for the [=InGen=] mercenaries sent to bring down Indominus alongside the Raptor Squad.

** Also in effect for Delta and Echo, the two raptors killed by Indominus during the climax: both are bitten and thrown by Indominus, Echo off-screen and Delta into a grill in one of main street's restaurants, causing a fiery explosion that obscures her death.
** Averted with Rexy the tyrannosaur as she loses the first round of her fight with Indominus, getting noticeably bloodied and clearly in pain. Notably, though, Rexy survives and injures Indominus just as badly with help from Blue the velociraptor.

* In ''{{Bionicle}} 3: Web of Shadows'', Keetongu kills Sidorak by slamming both of his fists down on him, effectively pounding him into the Coliseum floor. The shot only focuses on Keetongu from the waist up, and we only see pieces of debris flying into the air when he delivers the blow. Then the movie quickly cuts to [[TheStarscream Roodaka]] slowly walking away from the scene in complete satisfaction, while the ground is still continues to shake a bit.

**Played straight in the season 5 finale. When Twilight [[spoiler:ends up in the alternate timeline where Queen Chrysalis conquered Equestria]], we are treated to a shot of said villain attacking Zecorra. She knocks her down with one energy blast and is seen charging up her horn for the fatal blow, but the camera cuts away before it can be delivered (what appears to be a silhouette of Fluttershy being ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice by a henchman can be seen in the background, on the other hoof).

* This is used on ''WesternAnimation/QuackPack'' in the episode "Cat and Louse" when Huey shuts the door on the abusive animal trainer while he's covered in meat and about to be attacked by his lions and tigers. Huey even lampshades the trope by assuring the audience that they don't need to see what is happening.

* In the 2014 adaptation of ''[[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure Stardust Crusaders]]'', the scene where DIO forces American senator Wilson Phillips to circumvent a traffic jam by driving on the sidewalk cuts out all shots of pedestrians being mowed down. Right when Phillips gets onto the sidewalk, the scene cuts to Jotaro and company pursuing DIO on a motorcycle, then cuts back to Phillips barreling down the street with blood splattered all over the front of his car. Among all the various bits of censorship the anime had to go through, this is one that was '''not''' undone for the Blu-Rays.
