** In order to deal with the Founders, a joint Obsidian Order/Tal Shiar fleet planned to moved in to blow away their home planet's crust and mantle. According to TheOtherWiki, on an Earth-like planet, that constitutes 84% of planet's volume, just to get to a bunch of people that would mostly be on the surface.

** The episode where they tried to make a merry-go-round spin by shooting it. After regular handguns (and two larger guns) failed to do the trick, the Build Team reduced the friction caused by the spinning, attached metal plates to each bar, added barbed wire and flaming rope[[note]]This part was all Kari's doing. She called it the Scary-Go-Round.[[/note]], and shot at it repeatedly with the big guns. Only ''then'' did it spin.

* The end of the final ''Series/HoratioHornblower'' telefilm has Woolfe try to pull an ISurrenderSuckers on Horatio. Bush shoots him. So do about a dozen marines who are also nearby. Given that Woolfe had rather absurdly survived a huge explosion at the end of the previous telefilm, the overkill is pretty satisfying.

* ''Series/{{Arrow}}'': When [[spoiler: Sara]] is KilledOffForReal in the Season 3 premiere "The Calm", the writers apparently wanted to leave absolutely no doubt that this was the case -- three arrows to the chest, followed by falling off a roof onto their ''head''. Plus a WordOfGod confirmation that yes, [[spoiler: Sara]] really is dead this time.

* ''Series/{{Monk}}'' has a notable episode titled "Mr. Monk and the Really, Really Dead Guy," in which a killer takes out a victim by hitting him in the back of the head with a crowbar, suffocating him with plastic, poisoning him, stabbing him, shooting him, ''and then'' running over his body with a car. [[spoiler:It turns out this murder was a massive RedHerring to get the authorities entirely focused off a woman he'd also killed so that way they would not perform an autopsy on her, as doing so before the contents were naturally emptied would lead them to discovering evidence that could eventually point back to him]].

* In the ''Series/NightGallery'' episode "Lady, Lady, Take My Life", a man is killed by a psychic attack that causes a major artery in his belly to rupture. Also a major artery in his lungs. And one in his chest. All at ''the same time''. Any one of them would've been fatal on its own.
