* 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.

* 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 Renfairs. 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.

* ''Anime/PsychoPass'' is all too happy to use this particular trope, and anything hit by the Lethal mode of the Dominator guns tends to swell up like a balloon and detonate into a shower of gore. It's like a ranged version of Kenshiro's Hokuto Shinken.

*** Gantz winds up playing this scene repeatedly, set to Benny Hill music in TheAbridgedSeries.
*** It's telling that one of the very first scenes of gore in that series follows this trope. Two characters are cleanly decapitated by the impact from a subway train. There isn't anything that could reasonably have caused this, they just get smacked and their heads fly off.



** Justified in that [[spoiler:Spiral Power]] can do ''[[RuleOfCool whatever the hell it wants]]''.



** It's not used ''directly,'' but it's still useful for Ryouga since ''the process of learning it'' builds your resilience to stupendous levels.
*** It's also a decent stand-in for a frag grenade, and increases Ryouga's tactical value. Pity the story doesn't allow for squad tactics more often.



* All forms of Buu in ''DragonballZ''. Notable in that everyone else is pretty much MadeOfIron, but even normal handgun rounds can punch holes in him. Of course, he makes up for this with [[FromASingleCell ridiculous]] [[HealingFactor regeneration]] [[NighInvulnerability powers.]] This gave the animators a good chance to go wild with the kind of injuries Buu would suffer, ranging from being blasted to bits to get his head smushed into his neck, and so on.
** Buu tends to be as durable as he wants to be, which makes sense considering that he can turn from steam to goo to solid at will. In one scene he can let bullets pass through him like he's water, and in others he can tank hits from Super Saiyajin level characters without budging a hair.
** There is also the scene in ''Manga/DragonBall'' where Goku launches himself with a Kamehameha Wave and punches ''straight through'' King Piccolo, who then proceeds to spit an egg out of his now nonexistent stomach, make a short FinalSpeech without his lungs, and then [[MadeOfExplodium explodes for no apparent reason]]. Goku's punch not only came within a hair of tearing King Piccolo in half, it also apparently cauterized the wound so that Goku could be clearly seen through the (blood-and-gore-less) hole.

* ''Comicbook/{{Preacher}}'': Even simple acts result in horrific blood loss and tiny spurts of blood. Jesse Custer produces a spurt of blood by ''breaking a man's finger'', eyes will pop out from a kick to the chin, and bodies will explode with the slightest hit from a bullet. Oddly enough, the major characters gain many debilitating injuries over the course of the series (mainly [[ButtMonkey Herr Starr]]) from similar activities, but don't die instantly.
** Justified with any victims of the Saint of Killers, whose guns are powered by God Himself and can kill ''anything'' with a single shot. [[spoiler:Including, ironically, God Himself]].

* ''SinCity'' goes back and forth, depending on the mood of FrankMiller. Marv has splattered a man's head against a wall and Hartigan mauled the Yellow Bastard with his bare hands. Despite this, it's not uncommon for people to suffer massive injuries and continue to fight, treating it as OnlyAFleshWound.

** Nevertheless, ''Film/SavingPrivateRyan'' itself did have at least two occasions of soldiers ''disintegrating'' either from explosives detonating point-blank or extremely large-caliber weapons fire. (a 20mm cannon that ''decapitates'' one man and grotesquely maims two others. Several other soldiers are shown having lost limbs to mortar and shell fire. And one soldier essentially [[PinkMist evaporates]] when his StickyBomb goes off before he is ready.) This may be an example of RealityIsUnrealistic, however, since small arms aren't shown to cause as much bodily destruction.



* Laughably gratuitous ''Film/{{Platoon}}'' B-ripoff, ''Film/DeadlyPrey'' has {{Badass}} Mike Danton, at one point, kill an enemy {{mook|s}} by stabbing him through the heart with a ''twig''.
** In fact, B-through-Z-grade movies in the action and horror genres seem to be in love with this trope.

''twig''.



** Though most of the main characters are supposed to have the considerable strength, skill, and [[KatanasAreJustBetter damn good weapon]] required for bladed dismemberment.
** That wouldn't explain the cleanness of that bare-handed [[spoiler: eye-snatching]] move, though. Somebody apparently thinks that [[spoiler: the optic nerve and six extrinsic eye muscles]] are made out of Kleenex.
** This applies to the human hearts that can be destroyed by a pressure-point technique.



** [[BondOneLiner "Eat your vegetables."]]



** Even then, though, they're shown doing the decapitation with a minimum of effort on occasion, like one time when Duncan takes an Immortal's head with a rapier, and the cut couldn't have moved the blade more than six inches.
*** The movie is much better than the show at justifying this. You can clearly see Connor cut a head off and embed the sword a few inches into concrete. In the movie they are super strong owing to the fact that they've been alive for centuries training.
*** It's also implied that each quickening makes an immortal stronger.



** [[spoiler: it is implied that there was a chest burster thing growing in her chest. Hence the gunshots after the explosion.]]
*** Apparently the things were basically parasites that fed on the blood of the Cloverfield monster. They released a chemical that stopped clotting, but had rather.....unpleasant effects on things that were smaller than their traditional host.
*** [[spoiler: Which would make those gunshots a MercyKill, possibly subverting this trope because she was still alive after rupturing, not instantly converted to LudicrousGibs.]]

** And don't forget the guy in the fourth film who gets strained through a metal grid fence, with one chunk falling out to show that he was apparently boneless (since it's a plug of solid flesh where his ''rib cage'' should have been.)



* ''Film/FinalDestination4'': There's a guy who gets strained through a metal grid fence, with one chunk falling out to show that he was apparently boneless (since it's a plug of solid flesh where his ''rib cage'' should have been.)



* In the awful movie ''{{Pterodactyl}}'', one of the characters is snapped up by the titular reptile in a fell swoop, leaving behind his strangely-detachable legs.
** ''Pterodactyl'' '''loves''' this trope. Later on, a teenage girl is snatched by the shoulders...and tears in half at the waist. Apparently, the human body is simply too fragile to handle '''its own weight.'''
** Also in Pterodactyl one of the flying reptiles decapitates a man with ITS WING. Apparently, not only are Pteranodons made of iron, they are razor sharp as well.

** The virus in the movies is basically the real life version taken UpToEleven. This virus' effect seems to be turning people ''into'' plasticine.



** The mercenary Schoolboy is another justified example, as his Barrett M82 (which also fires a .50 cal round, similar to the M2), is often employed as a anti-vehicle weapon, and probably could take out two soldiers in one shot.



%%** Justified. They're ''{{Ninja}}''.
%%** And [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Assassins]].



** Somewhat justified, in that they're superhumanly strong aliens with razor sharp claws.
** A similar thing happens in ''Film/{{Species}}'', attributed to Sil's monstrous strength.
* ''Franchise/{{Hellraiser}}'' - The human body is often presented this way, especially the skin, which is treated like a garment, especially in ''Film/HellraiserIIIHellOnEarth'', where Pinhead plants a hook in a girl's forehead and pulls on said hook, which yanks the girl's entire skin from her body like a sheet from a mattress.

** Sure you can - assuming a blade designed for heavy cutting (like the stereotypical Japanese sword) and a competent swordsman, it's largely a matter of maintaining proper edge alignment all the way through the blow. This is harder than it sounds, though, ''especially'' in a combat situation as opposed to test cutting, and takes a lot of hands-on-training to get right.



** Well, it was only a stick until it hit stomach, then the rest of the spear showed up.
*** Also, that stick was sharp enough to disembowel [[spoiler:Shadow]] from ten feet away ''without touching him''. All is plasticine in the face of divine symbols.



** Was it a Dragon Rider? Because then it may be [[JustifiedTrope justified]] in universe by him being [[SuperStrength super strong]] and having an AbsurdlySharpBlade.



** There's also a tendency for any piece of wood that enters the chest of a non-BigBad vampire to unerringly find the heart. Possibly part of the transformation to undead killing machine is that [[Literature/HowTheGrinchStoleChristmas your heart grows three sizes that night.]]
*** This seems to be more due to fighting experience. Dawn, Willow, and even Buffy (albeit right after becoming the Slayer) have all been shown staking vampires but missing the heart.
** Vampires explode into dust after being poked in the chest with a wooden stake ([[PlotArmor unless they're a main character]]), even if said stake was not hammered in but wielded single handedly by a normal person without super strength.
*** One of the [[SarcasmMode best]] is in the episode where Willow, who at the time is barely capable of moving a pencil via telekinesis kills a vampire by flying said pencil into his back. The pencil wasn't moving with enough force to penetrate the vampire's leather jacket, let alone his flesh.
*** Willow's progression with levitation followed a progression, from being barely able to do it, through driving a pencil into a tree when she became upset during one of her practice sessions, to finally being able to drive a pencil into a vampire's heart.
*** Yeah and from there to floating Giles on the ceiling.
*** Another instance comes at the end of "[[Recap/BuffyTheVampireSlayerS3E16Doppelgangland Doppelgangland]]" when [[spoiler:Vamp Willow]] crumbles to dust after being pushed into, not a stake, but the jagged edge of what looks like a broken 1-by-4 -- something that would have to be propelled with awesome force to do anything more than give the average human a nasty scrape.

*** The worst instance however, occurs with a character who does have a name. Dawn is lying on the ground, holding a crossbow bolt pointing up while her vampire boyfriend slowly, and deliberately leans in towards her, and apparently, slowly pushing the bolt into his own chest until it pierces his heart.
** In one episode of ''Series/{{Angel}}'', he's being held in place from behind by another vampire and there's a human present who might want to kill both of them, or might just want to kill the other vampire. She stabs Angel through the chest at such an angle that she hits the other vampire's heart, but not his. She only found out about the existence of vampires the day before, so it's not like her vast Slayer experience was helping her there.

Being knocked down causes her to break her neck where a normal person would just hit their head, a normally quite safe garbage disposal tears her hands to shreds and even stray branches pose a mortal threat.

She does feel pain, and angsted about it when that changed because she 'no longer felt human.' Self-harm and masochism are nothing new to the real world. But if you have a {{From A Single Cell}}-caliber {{Healing Factor}}, it takes breaking the ChunkySalsaRule for it to be any good, perhaps.[[/note]] but it doesn't change the fact that you can't cut a toe off with scissors, that getting bumped into tends not to result in broken necks, and if you're pushed against a metal rod, you ''bruise;'' it doesn't go through you with ''less'' resistance than a toothpick through a meatball.
** Forget "break her neck" - her head is ''knocked around 180°.''
** In fact, Insinkerator filed a lawsuit against the producers of ''Heroes'' after the pilot aired, because their trademark was clearly visible in the scene where Claire mangles her hand, and they considered the ease of her self-mutilation to be defamatory.
** The fact that [[spoiler:her immune system suffers complete failure when her powers are gone]] seems to imply she really is made of plasticine.

*** Though, to be fair to Tesshu, when he's doing the "double arm-break and neck-snap" kill, he's clearly using leverage and pressure to achieve the breaks, like how you do it in real life. His being a doctor helps, too.



*** How realistic the wounds are depends on the type of enemy. Most villagers have fairly realistic wounds except for a head shot, which invariably rips their entire head off. Chainsaw villagers can get up and keep going at you after three or four shotgun blasts in the head. Kicks do way more damage then they really should, and knife hits way less.



** Debatable if this is an example. Making people explode with punches is explicitly Ken's power.



** As noted by [[WebAnimation/ZeroPunctuation Yahtzee]], ''VideoGame/DeadSpace2'' also invokes this ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Y3-Y7aQy4Y with the first death]]'' ([[NotSafeForWork NSFW]]); the player is give an up-close view of a man transforming into a necromorph, wherein appendages push out of his shoulders without difficulty, before most of his face easily crumbles away like pastry.
