* The Toonami edit of ''Anime/OutlawStar'' Zig Zagged this, some episodes they left "die" or "killed" alone, but in others they wouldn't even let a character say things like "Best to go on living" because it implies death.

The deadly implications of the euphemism entirely obvious here.

* Constantly averted in ''WesternAnimation/BuzzLightyearOfStarCommand.'' For instance, In one episode they openly admit that the Evil Emperor Zurg has a death ray, and aren't afraid to admit that it could kill someone. Which leads to this amusing exchange regarding said death ray.

* ''WesternAnimation/CodeLyoko'' wavers back and forth on this trope depending on the situation and/or who's speaking, with the humans either subverting this trope or cutting themselves off and the computer virus XANA using alternate terms.

* Comicbook/{{Deathstroke}} was planned to appear in Creator/{{Kenner}}'s unmade fourth wave of ''The Super Powers Collection'' figures, with his name changed to Terminator. This is not quite as drastic as many of the other examples of this page, since he was originally called Deathstroke the Terminator in the comics anyway.

** Note, however, that the ''Adventure'' dub does play it straight later on, when Myotismon [[BadBoss starts killing off his own henchmen]], with him stating that he's "banishing (them) to his dungeon in the Digital World."

* Downplayed in the ''VideoGame/MonsterHunter'' games. Most of the missions involve "hunting" large monsters, which effectively means they at least have to be killed (the ideal option is to capture them alive). But the word "slay" does appear when the mission involves an ancient dragon, and it's also used to warn that [[NonstandardGameOver a mission will fail if the objective is to capture the monster alive]]. So the speicific terminology goes like this: "Capture" is trapping a monster alive, "Slay" means you're required to kill it,[[note]]in the case of certain Elder Dragons, there's the option to just "Repel" them by inflicting them enough damage to shoo them away and still complete the mission[[/note]] and "Hunt" leaves it to your discretion.

** One of Saix's lines during battle averts this trope, however, as he says "I want to see you die fighting," though the line was supposedly removed in the actual release.

** 4Kids also did this to Cecilia, Pegasus's fiance/wife. The manga and the Japanese version of the second anime had her [[IllGirl dying of an illness shortly after they got married]], while the 4Kids version of the second anime had her taken away from Pegasus by a [[Yandere jealous plant monster spirit.]] Either way, the result is the same: Pegasus goes to Egypt to find the Millennium Eye (hoping that its powers can bring Cecilia back), only for the [[SealedEvilInaCan spirit inside of it]] to [[BrainwashedAndCrazy drive him mad.]]
