* In ''VideoGame/SonicForces'', an early scene has Infinite outright killing several RedShirt Resistance members with a sweeping laser and a bunch of explosions. All you really see is them falling over and one of their [[FamilyFriendlyFirearms laser guns]] dropping over to the [[PlayerCharacter Avatar,]] but the context and dialogue make it clear what just happened.

* When [[HavingABlast explosive]] [[KiManipulation ki blasts]] in ''Manga/{{Dragonball}}'' kill people, they'll generally either be [[NotEnoughToBury obliterated]] or fall over limp with very minor injuries, and not much inbetween. Yamcha death is a clear example, as a Saibaman's [[SuicideAttack point-blank explosive]] leaves him on the ground in the epicenter of a crater, but visibly just covered in dirt and a few scuffs.

The best you may get is some burns plastered on their faces. Naturally, the main characters just shake it off and carry on working at the same console that just exploded.
