* There are more rumors surrounding the death of UsefulNotes/AttilaTheHun's death than fan-rumors about deathson ''Series/GameOfThrones''. Most historians agree he died during his wedding feast to his latest wife, Ildikó. (Far from his first.) While some claim she murdered him and as a result, was killed by his soldiers, this is unlikely. (Given the ruthlessness the Huns show to traitors, her fate would have been far worse.) A more likely reason was that he ate and drank too much at the feast and later suffered from internal bleeding or choked on his own blood, or maybe injured himself while drunk and bled to death. The most undignified rumor, however, was that he was into CasualKink, and that Ildikó playfully punched him in the nose during sex, causing a nosebleed which made him choke until he choked to death. If true, this means one of the most dreaded and feared barbarian lords in history died after being punched in the nose. By a girl. [[OutWithABang During sex.]]

* In the very first episode of ''Series/DeadLikeMe'', George dies after getting hit by a toilet seat that broke off of Space Station MIR as it reentered Earth's atmosphere.
** ''DeadLikeMe'' had more than just George's death. The Gravelings caused Rube Goldberg-esque chain reactions that caused bizarre, comical, and very undignified deaths for many of the show's victims.

* Several characters in ''Literature/{{Ghostgirl}}'' have this in their backstories. For example, Charlotte choked on a gummy bear while [=CoCo=] got drunk, vomited in her handbag, and ended up drowning in her vomit when she passed out into the bag.

* William the Conqueror, descendant of vikings and first Norman King of England, died from intestinal damage after his horse reared and he was slammed into the pommel of his saddle. [[FromBadToWorse The funeral was even more embarrassing than his death.]] For various reasons, the funeral was delayed and the [[AdiposeRex already swollen body of the king]] got even bigger from expanding gasses. When they attempted to lower him into the stone coffin, his body wouldn't fit. So they tried to cram his body into it. [[{{Squick}} It exploded]]. [[NauseaFeul The putrid smell caused the mourners to flee]] and the rites were conducted hastily.

* ''WebAnimation/{{Death Battle}}'': In one of the biggest [[CurbStompBattle stomps]] in the show's history, the battle between [[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog Shadow]] and [[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} Mewtwo]] ends with [[spoiler:Mewtwo erasing Shadow's mind so thoroughly that ''[[AlmightyIdiot Shadow forgets about all his powers]]'', and then skewering him with ''a giant spoon'']]. Talk about humiliation.

* In Ptolemy's Gate from the BartimaeusTrilogy Bartimaeus is forcefully trapped in a [[SilverHasMysticPowers silver]] tureen of fish soup and has a ceiling dropped on it to prevent him from prying the lid off, his final thoughts before blacking out are lamenting what a pathetic way to die this was. [[spoiler: The death part is subverted when the soup insulates him from the effects of the silver long enough for his master to summon him back]].

* In David Eddings' ''[[Literature/TheElenium The Shining Ones]]'', a hit is put out on one Avin Wargunsson: diminutive and little-loved heir to the Thalesian throne who was abusing his power and was a general embarrassment to his country. The people assigned to the job decide on a whimsical method. They bring in a barrel of expensive red wine, claiming it is for him, open the barrel, then proceed to stick him inside and nail the lid shut. Given the general dislike of the guy, he isn't found until several days later. He was described as still being significantly purple during the funeral, and despite their best efforts, the entire congregation ended up breaking down in laughter. Anyone else who heard the story eventually ended up doing the same; it was ''that'' funny to them.
** There was some regret by at least the two killers. They wasted a perfectly good barrel of wine!
