* In the ''NoMoreHeroes'' games Travis Touchdown finishes off {{Mooks}} with either a vertical or a horizontal FinishingMove; the horizontal one decapitates them. Some of the [[BossBattle bosses]] get their heads cut off in post-battle cutscenes, as well. Particularly impressive is Skelter Helter's death - his head is chopped off, flies straight up into the air, and lands right back where it had been removed from.

It is nearly always depicted as being [[MadeOfPlasticine surprisingly easy to do]], even in one blow to a moving target. While Anne Boleyn did get beheaded with one stroke, most pre-guillotine beheadings took at least three strokes (plus, Boleyn's executioner was -- by request -- a professional swordsman who would know how to cleanly behead someone). In an actual SwordFight a strike ''on'' the head was much more common, [[BoringButPractical since it didn't put your sword at a very awkward angle and required much less force]].
