* ''Series/TheWire'': after Omar (a gangster who only steals from drug dealers and other gangsters) and his gang rob a stash house of the fearsome Barksdale criminal empire, the Barksdales respond by quickly tracking down two members of the gang and inflicting some serious overkill on them. In the first case, the body of Omar's accomplice is found surrounded by over 40 spent shell casings, (not one of which was fired by him) and Omar's [[{{Gayngster}} lover Brandon]] gets [[ColdBloodedTorture horrifically tortured to death]]. While the full details of the torture are never revealed, at the very least it involved mutilation, being cut to pieces, burned with cigarettes and having an eye ripped out. [[DeadGuyOnDisplay And then his body is left out in the open]] to send a message the neighborhood.

** The two of them had just been shown going "mosquito hunting", which involved firing a ''bazooka'' at the mosquito from a distance, then shooting at it using a machine gun, and finally firing a long burst at point blank range using a Lanchester SMG.[[note]]"There's nothing more dangerous than a wounded mosquito."[[/note]]. They also "skin" it by using a Bowie knife to cut off its wings. They later go fishing with dynamite, and the skit closes with the two sitting on top of a tank looking for their next quarry.

* ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'': {{Lampshaded}}. The traditional way to kill an okami is to stab it seven times with a bamboo dagger blessed by a Shinto priest. Rufus attempts this when hunting one in one episode, but does it 5 times. Later, Bobby kills it for real by shoving it into a woodchopper, leading to this exchange:
