* For a game based around sentient blobs of goo, ''VideoGame/{{Amorphous}}'' has multitudes of ways you can die. Getting jumped by the [[GoddamnedBats Biters]] and torn to pieces is probably the most common death. But you can also get decapitated, hacked in halves, melted in acid, [[KillItWithFire burned to the ground]], [[LiterallyShatteredLives frozen and shattered]], shredded to paste, exploded, atomized by a gravity beam, impaled, pierced by a multitude of needles, pierced by one big spike, crushed, eaten, absorbed... All those deaths have specific animations. A couple of the game's achievements require dying in multiple ways to unlock them.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/GunsGoreAndCannoli'', Vinnie will melt into a puddle if killed by acid or toxic waste, and burn to death if killed by fire. The tamest death is being BlownAccrossTheRoom by a Doughboy with a rocket launcher or [[DevouredByTheHorde eaten by zombies]].

** ''Tower of Destruction'' let you jump through an archway into direct incineration. If you'd failed to get all the flashy plot bits, you could also find yourself in a nigh-impossible fight, badly injured from the start, with a demon the size of a house.

** From the beginning of the ''Slaves of the Abyss'': if you mess around for too long in the city about to be besieged, the scene cuts to a weapon merchant and a peasant bargaining for, as it turns out, your own sword, which he dug up from under the ruins of the city.

* ''VideoGame/DwarfFortress'': While not deaths of the player character, the game has a gruesome combat system, and involves dwarves dying in ways ranging from being crushed in a cave-in to being shot by goblins to starving to death to killing each other to being eaten by carp. And that's not even touching magma, or the [[spoiler:[[TheLegionsOfHell Hidden Fun Stuff]]]]. Add to this the game's immense love of textual {{Gorn}} and the absurd physics, and you (or rather your dwarves) will find themselves dying in ways that range from hilarious to tragic. [[http://www.nerfnow.com/comic/371 This]] NerfNow comic nicely sums up why fortresses fail: your manic-depressive midget alcoholics are usually responsible for their own innumerable deaths.

* ''VideoGame/DonkeyKong'' on the Game Boy has several different death animations and songs for the various ways in which Mario can get killed -- getting hit by an enemy, getting squished, getting burned, falling too far... ''MarioVsDonkeyKong'' and its later sequels kept up the variety.
