**In particular, there was an incident where a mechanic examining the engine of a Continental 737 suddenly got sucked into the engine when he ventured too close. The result was him being effectively ''liquified'' by the engine (which also sustained severe damage) and spat out through the engine exhaust, leaving a [[OverdrawnAtTheBloodBank massive stain of what used to be the mechanic]] running for several metres down the tarmac behind the plane. The engine was literally caked in blood and lumps of fat. Search at your own risk.

* ''{{VideoGame/Half-Life 1}}'' was known for this, though not so much in the sequel. However, a third party mod known simply as "SMOD" took this to healthy levels (at least with "gore_moregore 2" on). Shoot a person in the head? A three second long spray of blood... twice. Somebody hits something going too fast? They explode. Vaporization? What was already a mesmerizing particle effect climaxes with them popping like a grape. And those invincible {{N|onPlayerCharacter}}PCs? Oh you better believe they were solely for target practice.
** Although ''{{VideoGame/Half-Life 2}}'' mostly avoids this, shooting Antlions with a revolver or shotgun causes it to explode.

* ''HappyWheels'' tries to justify this with everpresent spiked walls, falling weights, wrecking balls, [[BreadEggsBreadedEggs spring-loaded platforms that send you into spiked walls etc. etc.]] but still CrossesTheLineTwice anyway.

* ''Gantz'' - nearly all deaths, and even many non-fatal episodes... Which is saying something for an [[EverybodyDies]] series of nearly 400 chapters, with an in-panel body count in the thousands, literally (with multiple events in different arcs producing hundreds of mangled corpses in a matter of pages). With realistic 3D CG art, detailed anatomy, and common loss of limbs. Oh, and better yet, the author rarely splattered someone that "had it coming" - instead of cheering, the audience was more likely to be emotionally invested in or at least sympathizing with the newest crop of brutal deaths.

* Late in ''Manga/ShikabaneHime'', [[BigBad Hokuto]] punches someone so hard they turn into red mist and leave nothing but their kimono floating off in the wind. Noteworthy for being a case of "slapping into a red mist" not being hyperbole.

* In RaisingSteam death by steam engine turns people into red mist. Halfway plausible when applied to boiler explosions, a very real danger of the Steam Age, but not with a death that leaves the engine intact and might have involved a blast of live steam. (A horribly painful way to die, but not annihilating.)

* During the infamous Byford Dolphin ExplosiveDecompression accident, one of the divers was sucked through the hatch and "reduced to pot roast". The person exploded so violently upon hitting the hatch that several pieces of his body were found atop various pylons on the deck of the oil rig itself, some 60 metres above the site of the actual incident, and some pieces were never found, having fallen into the ocean or simply turned into mush.

* In ''VideoGame/{{STALKER}}'' games weapons (even explosives) cannot gib under any circumstances. However, certain anomalies can, and how! If somebody (including the player or the mutants) gets caught into Vortex anomaly, they will be sucked in and then spectacularly explode into shower of blood and guts. Another anomaly that can gib is Whirligig, but it doesn't explode anyone, instead it skins them alive, leaving only the skeleton. In first two games stalkers can accidentally step into those anomalies and get gibbed for the player's amusement, but in ''Call of Pripyat'' they are immune to anomalies for some reason, so they will just pass through them without any harm. This, hovewer, can be disabled by modding.
** Pyrogeists will always explode into gibs upon being killed, but they're the only exception.
