** "Belly'd Up": A [[BellyDancer belly dancer dancer]] practicing for an upcoming competition accidentally hangs herself on a moving ceiling fan while practicing.



** And the belly dancer who accidentally hanged herself when she tossed her scarf in the air while practicing for an upcoming contest. She did nothing wrong (except leave the ceiling fan on while she was practicing) and actually put herself through veterinarian school with her talent by dancing at Middle Eastern restaurants and nightclubs. At least she died doing what she loved...

* AssholeVictim: A number of the victims really are this.

to:

* AssholeVictim: Used rather deliberately. A number vast majority of the victims really in the stories are this.assholes, but it's most likely due to the show runners changing details of the real story so that the victims' deaths seem deserved. Seeing a bunch of gruesome/weird deaths of this nature would be depressing if the victims were just regular people.

** "Pretty Fly For A Dead Guy": A nerdy man bent on killing bugs creates wall-sized flypaper treated with an extremely sticky glue as a means to capture any and all creepy crawlies. Once he's finished, a mosquito buzzes around him and the man goes after it with a flyswatter. [[HoistBYHThe man slips and gets stuck to the wall, completely immobilized, soiled from losing control of his bladder and bowels, and dead days later from dehydration and the bugs turning his body into a buffet.

''1000 Ways to Die'' is [[Creator/SpikeTV Spike]]'s often hilarious 30-minute anthology of people dying in spectacular, gruesome and often stupid ways. Names were changed to avoid lawsuits, but the stories are [[BasedOnATrueStory based on actual events]]-- [[BasedOnAGreatBigLie mostly]]. Many of the people die because of stupid mistakes, some die as a result of their own misconduct, and some 3rd party innocent victims die because someone else did something so stupid that the poor victim's death probably kept the other stupid person from killing ''themselves'' through pure incompetence in being alive. In a lot of these cases, you're not surprised the person died, you're surprised that they lived as long as they did.

* TraumatizationCongaLine: The corrupt politician from "Scratch 'n' Snuffed". After being voted out of office, his Brazilian mistress sold his shady dealings to the press. After his wife found out, she slapped him and left him, leaving him dry and broke. Finally, he drops dead from Chagas Disease (see KissOfDeath).

** The corrupt politician in "Scratch and Snuffed". On one of his trips to his mansion in Brazil [[YourCheatingHeart while servicing his Brazilian mistress]], he was bit by a triotoma bug (which is also known as the "kissing bug), which gave him Chagas' Disease and eventually killed him.

* KungFool: In ''Kung F**ked'', an idiot tries and fails miserably to headbutt through a wood plank, then a cinderblock. Not getting the message that he's not the martial arts master he thought he was, he twirls some nunchucks, hitting himself in the head and breaking his skull thanks to the earlier damage from headbutting the cinderblock.

** A literal example of this trope would be the girl in charge of the kissing booth in "Spit-Ill". She only allowed paying customers to kiss her on the cheek and also stole money for charity. She made an exception with her high school crush and kissed him on the lips, but suffered a fatal allergic reaction from sunflower seeds, which her crush kept eating ever since high school.

Added DiffLines:

* PyrrhicVictory: There are quite a number of people in this show who have won a competition, but in the process, losing their lives.
** The AlphaBitch hazing sorority pledge master in "Mudder-Sucked". After being pulled into a mud wrestling pit by one of the pledges, the Alpha Bitch nearly beats the pledge into unconsciousness, having the other pledges pull her out. The Alpha Bitch was gloating over her victory, but she started to sink into the mud pit and die from suffocation. Turns out the pledges unknowingly built the mud wrestling pit on top of an underground sinkhole.
** The AlphaBitch in "Gooed Riddance". After beating out her friends in "Chubby Bunny" (the objective is to cram as many marshmallows in your mouth as you can while saying "Chubby Bunny"), the marshmallows melted in her mouth and formed a seal in her larynx, causing her to choke to death.
** A {{Jerkass}} horse jockey in "Die-arrhea". After being evicted from his apartment, he was forced to live in the horse stables. Normally, other horse jockeys would give a helping hand, but refused to because of his history of being a bastard. He trains to win one last race as a "screw you" to the other jockeys by being bulimic, and taking illegal Chinese laxatives to be lighter. He won the race, but then he dies from renal failure, potassium deficiency, and dehydration.
** A SpoiledBrat rich sorority pledge in "Who Fart-Dead". The sorority pledges had to compete to see who can stay in a boiling hot sauna the longest. The winner gets to skip "Hell Week". The rich pledge prepared by eating beans and broccoli, and drove all the other contestants out with her rampant flatulence. She had no time to celebrate her victory as she dropped dead from second-degree burns, hyperthermia, and dehydration.
** A teenager who accidentally swallowed a lit firecracker in a game of Chicken in "Chicken Boned". The narrator even discusses what the trope actually means.


Added DiffLines:

** "Cruci-Fried": A phony preacher was getting ready for another service to con people out of money. While preparing, he heard a hum from the speakers, and cut off the grounding prong from the plug. After stepping in the baptismal pool, he got electrocuted after picking up the ungrounded microphone.
