*** The legendary weapon Sever has the special ability "Slain enemies rest in pieces". Any killing blow with it has an artifically large crit value, causing the slain enemy to explode into gibs.

** ''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.

Compare MadeOfPlasticine (this is the video game equivalent), BloodierAndGorier. Compare and contrast PinkMist, a tamer, more realistic phenomena usually associated with real world head shots. See also the ChunkySalsaRule and OverdrawnAtTheBloodBank. And, of course, BloodyHilarious and NotEnoughToBury.

* ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheHalfBloodPrince'': During the Defense Against Dark Arts class, Snape shows what happens to victims of the Inferi and its not pretty...unless you consider a bloody stain on the floor pretty.

**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.)
