Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/KingsmanTheSecretService'' employs a variant, with more focus on [[RuleOfFunny "ludicrous"]] than [[BloodlessCarnage "gibs"]]. People have AmusingInjuries, but without the blood spatter seen in [[Film/{{Wanted}} other movies]] [[Film/KickAss adapting Millar comics]] best example being [[YourHeadASplode heads exploding]] in fireworks.

* There's a reason why we're called "water sacs" in most fiction; we tend to explode violently.

* ''Manga/{{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.

* ''VideoGame/CallOfDutyWorldAtWar'' appears like this if you're using the [[MoreDakka MG-42]], a shotgun at point-blank, or the [[{{BFG}} PTRS-41]], especially in comparison to the tame gore of past titles.

** ''Black Ops III'' has Specialists in it's online multiplayer, each with their own unique weapon. Examples include the Sparrow, a recurve bow that explodes anything it hits into a strew of chunks of meat, the War Machine, a grenade launcher with much the same effect, and the H.I.V.E, a pod that releases a swarm of electronic bots that infect any poor sap unfortunate enough to get too close, causing their limbs to pop into a spray of chunky gore one-by-one.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Counter-Strike}}'', a server-side mod for allowed for some extremely over-the-top gibbing. If you shoot someone with something like an AWP, you can see ''a fountain of blood coming out from the place where he was standing, all of that as you see his body torn to pieces!''
** Even without mods, a direct shotgun headshot on someone without a helmet qualifies. Plenty of salsa for the next party (quite {{chunky|SalsaRule}} of course)! Slightly less over the top, but still silly, is the fact that players without a helmet lose more blood thanwhat should ever be in a human's head from something like a 9mm bullet, or even a knife slash. Not stab. '''Slash'''.\\\ That said, the game '''is'' programmed to show more blood if someone is shot in the head.

** ''Videogame/{{Doom2016}}'' is liberal with the gibs, in part due to inspiration by Brutal Doom and the Doom comicbook. The Doom Slayer's Glory Kills often tear chunks of Demons off, and lethal headshots will easily destroy their heads in a cloud of blood. With the power of a Berserk artifact, your melee attacks are all turned into more spectacular dismemberments, including a reference to the Doom comic where the Doom Slayer punches through an Imp's chest from the front to pull out its spine. The Chainsaw carves demons up, and the BFG incarnation in this game utterly obliterates demons caught in its blast.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/FarCry4'' adds this to the series as part of its ability to [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill overkill wildlife]] and get less than you would from killing them with a regular-sized gun or especially a bow. Grenade launchers in particular can completely rip apart any living thing smaller than a rhino with a direct hit.

* ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands}}'' embraces this. If you go back 10 levels and use a powerful weapon, the enemies will ''explode'' into gore, blood and random body parts. Doesn't help that [[spoiler:one of the boss' bodies has its entire stomach opened up and the corpse never disappears. The body parts are still moving around and it is breathing.]]

** In the PlaystationVita port of ''VideoGame//Borderlands2'' enemies will explode into gibs regardless of how you kill them. This was apparently done to ease the strain on the hardware.

*** The "Legal Signs of Obvious Death" for most jurisdictions are the following: [[OffWithHisHead decapitation]], decomposition, [[ManOnFire gross incineration]], and [[GuttedLikeAFish gross evisceration]].

* In ''VideoGame/TimeSplitters: Future Perfect'', shooting someone enough with the Injector will result in them swelling up then exploding. If it happens to you, you get treated to [[InterfaceScrew your view stretching]] before the inevitable happens. Using it on the mutants in story mode causes them to leap up, then explode.

* In ''VideoGame/HaloReach'', getting headshots on the Drones (the bugs) turns them into this.
