* ''Undead'' is a comedy in the mold of ''Film/{{Braindead}}''. Best scene is when a zombie girl punches an old lady in the face, and its fist goes clear through her head! The fist emerges through the back of the old bag's skull, holding a big chunk of brain to boot.

* ''VisualNovel/SchoolDays''. Though it's slightly downplayed where [[spoiler:Makoto]]'s has to be stabbed over and over again in order to die, other times it shows a ridiculous 20-foot-high fountain of blood (specifically [[spoiler:Sekai]]'s anime death scene and the one from the game where h[[spoiler:er]] neck is sliced).

* in ''Fanfic/TheManyWorldsInterpretation'', ''{{Discworld}}'' Assassin Johanna Smith-Rhodes gives a reality check to the [[Series/TheBigBangTheory Caltech geeks]] Sheldon, Leonard, Howard and Raj. Their only previous experience of handling bladed weapons is with useless replica swords at Renfaires. Johanna provides the real thing and a target designed to simulate the resistance and solidity of a human head. Howard Wolowitz barely dents it, ''and'' manages to get the blade stuck in the target. Apparently Assassins' Guild students don't do much better at their first go either, and encountering something carefully crafted to simulate reality is yet another corrective to over-confidence.

** ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'': Every single soldier in this world wears plate armor in a feeble attempt to protect themselves. It's just too bad their ArmorIsUseless against [[{{Badass}} a big guy]] with an [[{{BFS}} even bigger sword]], as well as the [[TheLegionsOfHell horrible demonic creatures]] that he regularly fights.

Usually this is done to show the sheer appalling power of Guts', Apostles', and other inhumanly strong attacks. Guts routinely hits people so hard that their eyeballs and entire intact ''brains'' pop out of their shattered skulls. Perhaps the craziest example of this is Locus' ability to ''decapitate'' enemies by headshotting them with an [[{{BFS}} even bigger sword]], as well as his ''arrows'': The arrow pierces the [[TheLegionsOfHell horrible demonic creatures]] skull and keeps moving so that it rips the head right off the body by pure momentum with no regard for the neck muscles or spine, leaving the neck looking as if it had been CleanCut by an edged weapon. However, the trope is averted in the most gruesome way possible when Guts amputates his own forearm during the Eclipse, especially in the third ''Golden Age'' film where he's shown having to hack through every last strand of resisting sinew before he regularly fights.can free himself.

** ''Film/DawnOfTheDead'' has several scenes, particularly during the early scenes in the apartment building, where zombies bite off chunks of flesh that come off as easy as if they were made of silly putty.

** ''Film/DayOfTheDead.'' Remember poor Captain Rhodes, for instance? And it's not like that's the only zombie film in which that kind of thing happens, either.

* In ''Film/XMenFirstClass'', Magneto slowly moves a coin all the way through a man's head without even the slightest bit of resistance. It slips right in and out the back, with barely even any blood, as if the guy was a human slot machine. Considering the victim was standing in the middle of the room with nothing holding him in place but MindControl, poking him in the forehead with a blunt object should've just pushed him back and made him fall over.

** Then again, Deathstroke has SuperStrength and mostly carries indestructible swords, which could explain slicing through bodies but still doesn't explain ordinary sniper rifle bullets causing heads to explode like watermelons that were hit by a sledgehammer
