Added DiffLines:

* Some games in the ''Videogame/MonsterHunter'' series will continue to register hits onto a monster even after it's been killed, allowing you to spend the 60 seconds of free time after fulfilling the main objective continuing to wail on the monster, which can be [[CatharsisFactor cathartic]] if it's ThatOneBoss. Others, however, will just have your weapon go through with no effect.

'''Smiffy:''' They're dead, Trott. They're dead. Trott, stop. Let 'em go. Trott -- (''sees zombie stirring on the ground'') -- oh, he's not actually dead. Don't let 'em go. Keep fucking bashing mate! (''starts pounding on corpse himself'') DIE YOU BITCH!

* When [[CameBackWrong Aradia]] from ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' finally gets her hands on [[ManipulativeBastard Manipulative Bitch]] Vriska, the result isn't pretty. However, we later find this trope was subverted when it turns out [[spoiler:Vriska was not dead.]]

* You are encouraged to do so in ''VideoGame/DeadSpace'', the only way to ensure a [[TheUndead Necromorph]] is dead is to dismember every single limb of them, not only you can get items by stomping corpses, it prevents the [[{{Necromancer}} Infectors]] from resurrecting the corpses with its needle injection, so it's [[ProperlyParanoid definitely reasonable to ensure the things on your path are all truly dead]].

A character has just killed someone, usually through a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown. They keep pummeling the body long after it's clear that the victim is already dead, either in a fit of ExtremeMeleeRevenge that hasn't cooled down, due to having far too much fun (marking the killer as AxCrazy), or simply due to a need to make sure the victim ''stays'' dead. Sometimes the fists or blunt implement is replaced with either bullets or a very sharp implement such as a knife or an axe.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/IAmNotASerialKiller'' has a fairly serious example in the fourth book, ''The Devil's Only Friend''. [[ReluctantPsycho John]] loses control while on a mission and starts screaming and stabbing the corpse of an enemy. Not only does [[EvilMeScaresMe it disturb him after the fact]], one of his teammates witnessed it and threatens to put him down like a rabid dog.

Added DiffLines:

* Similar to the ''Dead Space'' example above, [[VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas the Ghost People of the Sierra Madre]] need to be dismembered when they die, otherwise they'll just [[ResurrectiveImmortality get right back up]] and continue attacking. While trying to cripple an arm or a leg in V.A.T.S. will do the trick (and instantly kill them in the process), early on it'll be easier to just get them on the ground and wail on the nearest limb with a melee weapon until it comes off.
