* In ''Manga/DGrayMan''Yu Kanda kills [[spoiler: Skinn Bolic]] by cutting him multiple times, stabbing him with his sword in the left side of the chest (where the heart is), slicing him from the shoulder down to the lower belly which causes the innocence to melt in his body as well and finally bisecting him to eventually make him stop to move.

* Saitama from ''Manga/OnePunchMan'' can defeat any opponent with a single punch, but he has the habit of unleashing a flurry of "normal punches" that usually leave the victim as an unrecognizable puddle of meat.
** It should be noted that "A single punch" doesn't so much as 'defeat' as it 'totally and utterly pulverizes'.

** Epically done by Yami Yugi, after Yugi's soul is taken by the Oricalchos. Insector Haga''[[BullyingADragon taunts]]'' the guilt-wracked and now rather unstable Yami by tearing up a card in front of him after claiming Yugi's soul was in it and that [[DeaderThanDead tearing it up erased him]], "[[MoralEventHorizon as a joke]]". Yami Yugi...well, he goes [[UnstoppableRage totally and utterly apeshit]]. Using the Spell Card Berserker Soul which allows him to attack as long as he continues to draw Monster Cards, Yami Yugi defeats Haga by drawing two Monster Cards, which are enough to drop his Life Points to 0. However, the enraged Yami Yugi then continues bashing at him, by drawing at least '''six''' more monster cards in a row, each hitting for 1500 damage each. He would've kept going too, if Anzu hadn't stopped him. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-9NBvsmQ2Ik Here's the scene]]...Not pretty.
*** Just to drive home ''how'' far into overkill this is: by the time Anzu halted the onslaught, Haga was down to -8300...dead ''[[DeaderThanDead three times over.]]'' Even at the card game's 8000 Life Points start rather than the anime's 4000, this whole onslaught would have been an OneHitKill.

** An example that also doubles as a CrowningMomentOfAwesome takes place in ''Anime/YuGiOh5Ds'' when Jack Atlas [[spoiler:summons Red Nova Dragon for the first time. Both he and his opponent have 200 life points left, and Jack, after turning the Big Bad into a card purely with the power of his own hot-blooded awesomeness, proceeds to summon said card and steamroll his opponent for almost 2000 Battle Damage]].

* Happens in ''Manga/CityHunter'' when facing Union Teope. {{Justified}} as Union Teope is fond of dosing people with [[PsychoSerum Angel Dust]], with the victim becoming a mindless murderer with SuperStrength and [[TheJuggernaut effectively impossible to stop without a headshot or beheading]] (they ''can'' be killed by shooting them in other places, but they ''won't stay down'' and will kill you before bleeding out), and the best way to do so is to riddle the drone with bullets and shoot him in the head with a HandCannon while he's down.

* Happens in ''Manga/CityHunter'' ''Manga/CityHunter'':
** Handguns chambered for magnum rounds are very much overkill against unarmored targets that aren't Umibozu, yet Ryo and co. use them almost exclusively. In a more typical example, Ryo once used a rifle chambered for .500 Nitro Express rounds (a hunting round created to take down big game such as buffalos, rhinoceros and elephants) as part of a complicated scheme to give a very humiliating death to a boxer who fixed his matches with threats and blackmail, and took care of explaining how powerful it was beforehand.

** How does the immense ''Yonkou'' Big Mom react to a fly buzzing around her room at night? First, she smashes it with her brute strength. Then, she has a storm cloud she controls blast it with lightning, a miniature sun breath fire on it, and finally a living BFS stab it. ''At the same time.''

** Mikazuki Augus from ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamIronBloodedOrphans'' is already notorious for ''frequently'' delivering NoHoldsBarredBeatdown to his enemy, but the fight against [[spoiler: Carta Issue]] takes the cake. In his RoaringRampageOfRevenge for his fallen allies, [[spoiler: he slammed her bodyguards and [[KilledMidSentence stomped them when the later wanted to negotiate for a duel]], pursued Carta without bothering her chatter and her name, dismembered her mecha, [[CruelAndUnusualDeath flinged her dismembered mecha across the snowy field]], [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill broke her sword and snapped her hand apart]], even when Mika's final blow was interrupted by Gaelio and Orga, the flinging had already claimed Carta's life.]]

** The end of the Yugi vs Kaiba duel in the Battle City Finals. Yugi could've simply used his Dark Paladin to kill ''one'' of Kaiba's three Blue-Eyes White Dragons, and would've won the match. Instead he [[CastFromHitPoints paid a thousand lifepoints]] to allow the Paladin to attack and destroy ''all three dragons at once'', and totally blowing Kaiba's ego to smithereens.

** And from an early episode of ''Anime/YuGiOhGX'', Jaden and Kaibaman face off, and the latter has Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon on his side, breathing down the former's powerful but much weaker Bladedge. Jaden looks ready to turn things, as well as this trope, around by springing a trap that would destroy Kaibaman's ultimate monster at the cost of his own, with the added effect of taking out the latter's life points equivalent to the just destroyed monster...only for Kaibaman to chain De-Fusion and split the ultimate dragon back into its 3 only somewhat weaker counterparts. Jaden, left with nothing on his side of his field, can only watch as Kaibaman launches his attack with ALL 3 of his Blue-Eyes, [[LargeHam shouting, to maximum effect: "Kyojin! Muteki! Saikyou! Funsai! Gyakusai! Daikasai!" ("Giant! Invincible! Strongest! Pulverize! Honorable Defeat! Big Applause!")]]
** In the SeasonFinale of that season, Ryu duels Judai. In Ryu's final turn, he uses Power Bond to summon Cyber End Dragon, which doubles its Attack Points to 8,000, and then plays Limiter Removal to double it ''again'', to 16,000. Ryu declares an attack against Judai's Shining Flare Wingman, which currently has 4,900 ATK, but Judai uses Battle Fusion, increasing his monster's ATK by that of Ryu's monster. (Meaning Shining Flare Wingman now has 20,900 ATK.) But wait! Ryu has a Battle Fusion too! Now Cyber End Dragon has 36,900 ATK! But Judai has one trick left: He uses a Trap called Final Fusion, which does damage to both players equal to the ATK of ''both'' monsters battling, meaning he ''and'' Ryu take 57,800 points of damage simultaneously and the duel ends in a draw. (By the way, at the start of the round, Judai had 100 Life Points remaining and Ryu had 550, and in this round alone, they both took more damage than ''fourteen times'' the Life Points they started with.)

** In ''Anime/YuGiOhZEXAL'', Quattro uses his ''jumbo-sized shredder puppet'' to grind two monsters into submission, then "holographically" blasts their owners off the ground with the laser cannon coming out of it. He then tells them their suffering is not over yet, and proceeds to repeat the process by reviving the shredded monsters and grinding them over. But of course, how could he be done without ''some whipping?''
