'''[[caption-width-right:309:[[Franchise/MortalKombat FATALITY.]]]]'''

->''"My blood! He-he punched out '''ALL MY BLOOD!'''"''
-->-- '''[[VideoGame/TeamFortress2 The Scout]]''', ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fb2iolbIlWc Meet the Sandvich]]''

Blood, as an indicator of injury and mortality, is something you don't want to see - unless the scene plays out in such a way that the gore [[CrossesTheLineTwice becomes the joke]], turning the gruesome display into hilarity.

May involve HighPressureBlood, a shower of LudicrousGibs, or a serving of [[ChunkySalsaRule Chunky Salsa]], but whatever the details the victim is certain to be OverdrawnAtTheBloodBank.

See also {{Gorn}}, BloodyMurder. Especially common in BlackComedy. Often the more mature cousin to CoveredInGunge.

[[folder:Advertising]]
* The 10:10 "No Pressure" commercial features people and children being exploded bloodily because they can't or won't come up with ideas for reducing carbon emissions, and is intended to be humorous this way. Unfortunately very few people saw the humor (it also starts very seriously, and the people-bursting comes completely out of nowhere, creating definite MoodDissonance) and were [[DudeNotFunny deeply offended]] or [[NightmareFuel disturbed]] instead. See No Pressure (film) on ThatOtherWiki for details, since the Youtube version may have been edited.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q0r6LfjMYRE This Japanese advertisement]] for tea.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
* Episode 22 of ''Anime/KillLaKill'' features Ryuko recovering both Sword Scissors from Nui Harime, which Ryuko promptly uses to slice off both of Nui's arms. Nui doesn't really seem all that disturbed by it, until [[GoodThingYouCanHeal her healing factor]] fails to kick in. The whole time this is happening, Nui is shooting HighPressureBlood from where her arms used to be. Once Nui gets [[ComplainingAboutRescuesTheyDontLike involuntarily rescued]], she even gushes the HighPressureBlood all over the face of her rescuer, who has [[RuleOfFunny no problem speaking despite that]].
* In ''Anime/ExcelSaga'''s 26th episode, "Going Too Far", the whole world ends up drowning in blood by the end, all puked up by Hyatt.
* ''LightNovel/BludgeoningAngelDokurochan'': Multiple times per episode the main character is [[TheyKilledKenny horribly mutilated or brutally murdered only to be revived seconds later]].
* [[AxeCrazy Ladd]] [[PsychoForHire Russo]] from ''LightNovel/{{Baccano}}!'' is an example of this trope in the vein of Creator/QuentinTarantino. When he hears gunshots he gets giddy to the point of SKIPPING TOWARD THE ACTION. Blood is something to celebrate and perhaps even dance in. This should be horrific except Ladd's [[LargeHam hammy]] approach to it all makes him one of the comic relief characters.
** He punched a guy to death... THEN he proceeded to punch the corpse 47 times while ranting about how mobsters are too self-absorbed to live any longer, famous boxers and making sausage. Needless to say, after he stops, there's just a huge splatter of blood where the poor guy's head used to be.
** And then there's [[TortureTechnician Claire]], [[PyroManiac Nice]], and [[ButtMonkey Dallas]]. This show is MOSTLY an example of this trope.
* In the anime ''Manga/SazanEyes'', the male protagonist Yakumo Fujii was made more or less immortal and is constantly dying or being killed. GoodThingYouCanHeal, Yakumo. The more he dies, the funnier it gets.
* ''Death Panda'' by Waita Uziga.
* A serious moment during Negi's BattleInTheCenterOfTheMind in ''MahouSenseiNegima'' used this as a quick gag when his HighPressureBlood [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/mahou_sensei_negima/v23/c207/8.html splattered all over]] [[ButtMonkey Chisame]].
--> '''Chisame:''' GYAAAH!? \\
'''Rakan:''' ({{sweatdrop}}ping) This ''is'' bad.
** There's also the time where Rakan wanted to test Negi's strength by [[HitMeDammit having Negi punch him as hard as he could]]. Cue a dramatic SmokeShield moment...and then Jack coughs up a torrent of blood and socks Negi for punching too hard.
** At one point, Kaede gets slammed into a wall after getting blindsided by Ku Fei during a [[TrainingFromHell training exercise]], prompting Anya to wonder if she was still alive. She then emerges from the rubble unharmed... except for a large fountain of blood from the forehead, [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/mahou_sensei_negima/v20/c181/7.html which she ignores]].
* This is one of Izumi Curtis's shticks in ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist''. She's got nasty internal injuries, so often, in the middle of a BadAss speech or right after beating up her students, she'll puke blood and have to be comforted by her husband. It's used dramatically too.
* ''Manga/SoulEater'' often plays characters getting serious injuries (and usually shooting blood all over the place) for comedy. It helps that they're generally perfectly okay a minute later.
** Some fights go between comedy and serious; Stein fighting Crona, for example, as it starts with the child getting stabbed through the chest, clearly and rather abruptly.
* ''SaitamaChainsawShoujo'': The AxeCrazy protagonist Fumio's reaction to getting sprayed in the face after taking down someone standing between her and her target, the ex-boyfriend Takumi, could be taken as innuendo for a ''different'' kind of fluid.
--> Fumio: ''"Ahh... But I had really wanted Takumi's blood to be the first on me."''
* In ''Manga/OnePiece'', Sanji's many instances of NoseBleed are, without exception, played for laughs. Even when the blood loss almost kills him.
* In ''YuruYuri'', Chitose's nosebleeds can end up here. Especially in episode 13 of the first series.
* ''LightNovel/JinruiWaSuitaiShimashita'' has the suicidal robot bread (technically carrot juice, not blood). Whether you think this is funny or horrifying is a fairly good indication of if you'll like the show.
* ''LightNovel/HaiyoreNyarkoSan'', being an AffectionateParody of the CthulhuMythos, indulges in this from time to time. Most often it's caused by Nyarko mercilessly slaughtering {{Mooks}}, while in the light novels and ''Nyaruani'' shorts it comes from [[{{Tsundere}} Mahiro]] stabbing Nyarko with a fork as punishment for bad behavior (the series these stabbings only produce [[AmusingInjuries comedic lumps]]).
* Part of 'the ''Anime/AngelBeats'' charm, often in tandem with GallowsHumor. It helps that ImmortalLifeIsCheap is in full swing here... [[CessationOfExistence unless it's not]]. Then things like this are not [[TearJerker nearly so funny]].
** Of particular note: the time [[GenkiGirl Yui]] accidentally hung herself with a microphone cord, or the time [[DwindlingParty the entire gang got mowed down in the Guild]] in various [[FamilyUnfriendlyDeath family-unfriendly ways]] - which became pretty much a tradition for full-cast battle episodes. Then, on the ''third'' trip through the Guild, where they all get mowed down ''again'', the team has an uncharacteristically dark moment of SayMyName for each dying character... until they get to [[TokenEvilTeammate Naoi]].
-->'''Naoi''': ''(gravely)'' I'll go next. ''(gets brutally slaughtered)''
-->''({{Beat}})''
-->'''Otonashi''': Isn't anyone going to say something?
-->'''Yui''': I don't know his name.
* It's fairly rare for characters in ''Manga/{{Gintama}}'' to not get at minimum a nosebleed from the [[MoodWhiplash (Usually)]] comedic injuries they suffer on a regular basis.
** During the Popularity Poll arc, Shinpachi wonders what Sadaharu and Elizabeth are up to due to having not seen them for the entire arc, after which it cuts to the former giving the latter an extremely graphic beatdown that's impossible to take seriously due to their appearances.
** At the end of the Renho arc, Katsura is subjected to a similar beating from much of the cast due failing to mention that [[spoiler: the Elizabeth who left was just a substitute who fills in for the real one on Mondays.]]. It's bad enough to warrant a ViolenceDiscretionShot, though the copious amount of blood from it can be seen.
** This clip [[http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=vIRxLjgK_LY]] may count (poor Kondou-san).
*** Not to mentioned the Sadaharu bites, Oryou crushed by Otae-san while doing a test of courage, Kondou-san farts with blood after beating Ayumu Toujou at the Toilet etc. This Gorilla loves to spill more blood in a hilariously manner second only to Urobutcher.[[/folder]]

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* ''SinCity'' often ventures into this camp, whether it's Marv grinding someone's face into the pavement as he drives, Jack Rafferty gradually being hacked up, or Shlubb and Klump being brutalized. The violence goes so over the top that it's just fun to watch. Sometimes.
* This is the main point of the ''Sinister SpiderMan'' mini-series from ''ComicBook/DarkReign''. The title character is secretly Venom... who eats people. For fun. At one point, Venom half-digests a bad guy.
* In ''{{Finder}}'', there's a memorable scene where Jaeger, the hero, is suffering from auto-immune problems due to his overactive HealingFactor not having had enough to do for a while. He ends up secretly cutting himself in his girlfriend's bathroom, and gets carried away, leaving himself sliced to ribbons and the bathroom soaked in blood. At this point the girlfriend comes home unexpectedly, and he frantically and hilariously tries to wipe up the mess with towels, before panicking and jumping out of the window. The girlfriend muses sadly that she never had anybody kill himself '''and''' run away from her before.
* ''JohnnyTheHomicidalManiac'' falls into this fairly often.
* The Marvel Knights {{Punisher}} series. GarthEnnis has [[WordOfGod said that one of his inspirations for the run was]] [[TheSimpsons Itchy and Scratchy.]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Fan Works]]
* Sickening example in ''Fanfic/TheLionKingAdventures''. In ''My Immortal'', Tara's guts explode all over Simba, Nala and Haiba. Their reactions are priceless.
-->'''Tara:''' Shut... up... you... ''prep!''
-->''(Tara's guts explode over Simba, Nala and Haiba.)''
-->'''Nala:''' Oh... ''gosh''!
-->''(Haiba wipes a fragment of intestine from his muzzle.)''
-->'''Haiba:''' Oh, man! That is the second most disgusting thing I've ever had in my mouth!
-->''(Simba fiddles around with his mouth.)''
-->'''Simba:''' I think I've just swallowed something...
-->'''Haiba:''' You sure it wasn't her kidney?
-->'''Simba:''' Yeah, I think it was her kidney.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Film]]
* The Black Knight from ''Film/MontyPythonAndTheHolyGrail'' would not have been as funny without the geysers of blood sprouting from his severed limbs, let alone KillerRabbit
* In their movie, ''Film/MontyPythonsTheMeaningOfLife'', two men set about harvesting organs from a donor... A perfectly, healthy, conscious man who is quite unhappy about the whole affair, to say the least. Five minutes of horrific screaming and spurting blood manages to [[CrossesTheLineTwice cross the line]] so many times, you quickly lose count. And from his point of view, with his hands occasionally coming into shot to grab back at the organs as they are ripped away.
* Michael Palin and Terry Gilliam also made ''Film/{{Jabberwocky}},'' set in the Middle Ages, with many examples of this trope. Most memorable was the king and princess getting repeatedly splattered with blood while observing a jousting tournament from the royal box and calmly discussing the outcome with a royal advisor.
* ''Film/{{UHF}}'' and the in-film Home Improvement TV show. ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=toNsPh-pxgc Is my face red...]]''. Of course, in the end, ''It's Just a Flesh Wound''.
* This is the entire point of the ''Franchise/EvilDead'' sequels. Especially the second movie.
--> "Who's laughing now?!"
* ''Film/DragMeToHell'' has a [[HighPressureBlood high-pressure nosebleed]] that results in a CrowningMomentOfFunny.
* Several deaths from ''Film/HotFuzz'', in particular, when the florist is stabbed in the neck, and when the church spire crushes the journalist. Though the best is Simon Skinner's fate: impaled on the spire of a scale model church... ''through his chin''. He survives.
--> I'm... going tho needh fome.. ''ife cream''...
* ''Film/DraculaDeadAndLovingIt'', when [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x-52jun8NXs they're driving a stake into Lucy's heart]], and...
--> '''Harker''': ''There's so much blood!''
-->'''Van Helsing''': She just ate!
** Doubly funny because of the actor's reaction --he [[EnforcedMethodActing had not been told]] he would get drenched with ''750 liters'' of blood.
* ''Film/KungPowEnterTheFist'' has the scene where master Betty cuts off a man's toe and blood sprays out like this when he is walking. Compare this with the scene at the start of the movie where the Chosen One ''[[RefugeInAudacity punches a clean hole in a man]]'' with no blood whatsoever, the surprised narrator [[LampshadeHanging commenting on this]] [[OverlyLongGag for the next minute and a half]].
* The first ''Series/TheAddamsFamily'' movie, when Wednesday and Pugsley do a scene from ''Theatre/{{Hamlet}}'', spraying prop blood all over the audience.
* Some have had this reaction to the throat-cutting scenes in ''Film/SweeneyToddTheDemonBarberOfFleetStreet''. [[SoundtrackDissonance The juxtaposition of the violent action and the gentle song]] was funny enough, and the unrealistic geysers of blood just made it sillier.
* ''Film/TwentyEightDaysLater'' can cause this reaction in some people, particularly those who... er... know [[OverdrawnAtTheBloodBank how much blood is actually in a person]].
* Pick a [[Creator/QuentinTarantino Tarantino]] film of your choice. Well, except ''Film/ReservoirDogs''. Maybe.
** The blood fountains in ''Film/KillBill'' in particular.
** The shootout in ''Film/DjangoUnchained'' qualifies.
** Tarantino also collaborated with several other directors on ''Film/{{Grindhouse}}''. The most hilariously over-the-top bits were in Creator/RobertRodriguez' [[Film/PlanetTerror contribution]], and Eli Roth's [[RealTrailerFakeMovie fake movie trailer]], ''Thanksgiving''.
* Speaking of Creator/RobertRodriguez, he indulged in this on the ''Film/SinCity'' film, when the Neo-Nazi enthusiast of a torture specialist's work manages to get speared through by one of Deadly Little Miho's arrows, ask plaintively for medical assistance as the baddies read the attached note and make plans, then sigh in disgust as he's deserted and promptly shot through the head with Miho's follow-up shot.
* ''Film/RepoTheGeneticOpera'' has 'Mark It Up', in which one half of the comic relief duo brutally stabs one of the women in his employ in the stomach for a minor offence. Throughout the scene, she's thrashing around, bleeding, choking, and dying in agony. Meanwhile, her murderer and his brother bicker in song over which of them will inherit their dad's company, throw human organs at [[HelloNurse scantily clad nurses]], and flirt with other women, who are apparently neither surprised nor concerned that one of their co-workers is dying at their feet. In fact, she goes completely ignored. This is widely considered to be the funniest scene in the movie.
* Creator/PeterJackson's ''Film/{{Braindead}}''/''Dead Alive'', supposedly the inspiration for the term "splatstick." According to [[http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0103873/trivia IMDB]], it is the bloodiest movie of all time, one scene having fake blood pumped at 5 gallons per second for a total of 300 liters (two different listings). In a CrowningMomentOfAwesome, the protagonist slings a lawnmower over his shoulder with a rope and (almost literally) wades into a room full of zombies...
* The '''geyser''' of blood from the bed of Glen (Johnny Depp's character) in the first ''Film/ANightmareOnElmStreet1984'' movie. Which continues to flow ''on the ceiling''. Epic.
* Hong Kong film ''[[RikiOh Riki-Oh: The Story of Ricky]]''. Source of the infamous "head crush" clip from ''Series/TheDailyShow''.
* German ScareEmStraight workplace-safety parody film ''Film/ForkliftDriverKlaus'' descends to this at the end. One poor guy gets cut in half, survives... and gets cut in half again! Made only funnier by the reaction shots from the headless forklift driver.[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-oB6DN5dYWo Find it here.]]
* In the commentary for ''Film/SleepyHollow'', Tim Burton admitted that he attempted to find as many opportunities as possible to have Johnny Depp's character sprayed in the face with blood.
* There's a scene in the otherwise mediocre and forgettable werewolf movie ''[[Film/{{Cursed 2005}} Cursed]]'' that has a bitchy cheerleader trying to crawl away from the site of her crashed car/werewolf attack. When she notices that she's not getting very far, she looks down at her legs to discover... ''she's been ripped in half''.
* The CutawayGag in the tv-movie ''Film/DarkNightOfTheScarecrow'' when the first revenge victim falls into a running woodchipper and the scene abruptly cuts to a closeup of a blob of strawberry jam landing on a plate.
* ''Film/ShaunOfTheDead'' definitely deserves a mention on this page.
-->''Points to zombie bloodstain on Shaun's shirt'' "You've got red on you."
* ''Film/{{District 9}}'' is a totally serious film, albeit laced with a dark streak of [[BlackComedy black humour]]. This does not make the effects of alien weaponry on people any less hilarious. Or AWESOME.
* When ''Film/{{Machete}}'' rappels down the side of a building.... with a mook's intestines.
* The first part of ''Film/ASeriousMan'' involves a faux folk tale of a man who invites another man in... only to find that his wife had heard that the man he was supposed to be had died. Believing him to be a ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dybbuk dybbuk]]'', she stabs him. The humor comes from the man treating this as a mere ''social slight'' as blood comes out of his chest. Knowing when he isn't wanted, he gets up, and leaves into the night.
* ''Film/CannibalTheMusical'' goes into hilariously graphic detail of members of the [[NoPartyLikeTheDonnerParty Donner Party eating each other.]]
* ''Film/GalaxyQuest'' has a rather graphic transporter failure in which an alien creature is beamed aboard the spaceship with most of its parts in the wrong places. It survives for a little while before exploding, which does nothing to reassure a crew member that the transporter will work on him.
* ''Film/AnchormanTheLegendOfRonBurgundy'' has Channel 2's news anchor losing both arms.
* ''Film/AnAmericanWerewolfInLondon'', David's rampage at Piccadilly Circus.
* ''Film/ScaryMovie 5'':
** The movie features a chicken getting its head ripped off; the amount of blood that shoots out allows the housekeeper to paint a crucifix on the wall [[FunnyBackgroundEvent while the two main characters chat with each other, oblivious to the carnage behind them.]]
** Also when Mullins and Ashburn [[spoiler:get taken hostage. Mullins pulls a knife out of Ashburn's leg, only to have to put it back in before the captor comes back]].
* ''Film/HardRevengeMilly'' is generally serious, but has a moment where a mook slips in a puddle of blood and falls over when chasing Milly.
* ''Film/TuckerAndDaleVsEvil'' is a horror-comedy DeconstructiveParody of the HillbillyHorror genre where the deaths are over-the-top and played for humor, both by the over-the-top nature of them and the fact that they're all the result of stupid accidents done by those who die.
%% * ''Film/Piranha3D'', [[{{Gorn}} enough said]].
%% * Pick a Creator/{{Troma}} film. ANY Creator/{{Troma}} film.
* ''Film/TokyoGorePolice'' cranks this UpToEleven. The death scenes are intentionally over-the-top, and [[OverdrawnAtTheBloodBank ridiculous amounts of blood gush out of people's bodies and wounds]], to the point that it becomes hilarious.
%% * The imagination scene in ''Film/{{Superbad}}''.
%% * The 2003 film ''Film/{{Zatoichi}}'' comes as no surprise, given the fact that it was directed by "Beat" TakeshiKitano.
%% * ''Film/TheCabinInTheWoods.'' When they open all the elevators... [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome so much epic carnage.]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lN5YDtkmxsk Watch the scene here.]]
%% * The incident with the choking man at Denny's in ''Film/TheHeat''.

[[folder:Live Action TV]]
* ''Series/{{Angel}}'': Merl was eventually killed by members of Gunn's gang who had gone out of control and started killing demons indiscriminately. When Gunn asks where Merl's body is, Angel casually points at assorted splotches throughout the room.
* In ''Series/HappyEndings'' one episode has Jane bonding with her boss, the Car Czar, and his other, all male employees. They work together to prank another employee who opens up a car trunk to show it off to potential buyers-only to find Jane done up as a stabbed and bloody corpse. Cue the Car Czar jumping out and yelling "You just got Car Czared!"
* ''Series/{{Scrubs}}'': In the season three episode "My Tormented Mentor," when Cox and Kelso fight over Dr Miller, they are shown tearing off her arms and beating one another with them. She looks unimpressed as blood pumps from the stumps.
* ''Series/{{Friends}}'': in the season five episode "The One With All The Thanksgivings," Phoebe has two past life flashbacks involving being a nurse in a war. In both, her left arm is blown off, and you see copious blood pump from the wound as she shouts for more gauze.
* An old ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' sketch has a Julia Child parody "cut the dickens out of [her] thumb," and subsequently bleed all over the set while trying to continue as though nothing had happened. As with most classic SNL, very funny.
* ''Series/BreakingBad'':
** The show did it in particularly graphic fashion. In season 1, Jesse and Walt need to [[DisposingOfABody dispose of a body]]; Walt steals some hydrofluoric acid from his lab at the high school, gives it to Jesse and tells him to get a specific kind of plastic tub. Jesse doesn't see the reason for the second part and simply puts the body and the acid in an ordinary bathtub. As it turns out, the plastic tub was necessary because the hydrofluoric acid would ''dissolve'' anything else... including the bathtub. And the ''floor''. The RuleOfDrama applies in that what was once a human corpse falls through the ceiling in a chunky liquid form only ''after'' Walt shows up to make sure Jesse hadn't done anything stupid with highly toxic acid. The camera lingers on the gory mess long enough that there is some {{Squick}} factor, but (a) Walt's ''[[OhCrap Oh, God]]'', (b) the way they slooowly back away from the dripping ceiling (c), Jesse's expression as Walt, with exasperated patience, explains how the acid did what it did and (d) the cartoonish shot of them looking up at the bathtub-shaped hole in the ceiling are too funny not to get a laugh.
** In the next season, viewers get to witness a junkie's head getting crushed by an ATM.
* ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus'' has [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M1-NpyaOWV0 the Sam Peckinpah version of "Salad Days"]], followed by "Philip Jenkinson" getting machine-gunned to death in slow motion for ''sniffing too much''. Which, just to cool things down a bit, was followed by [[RelaxOVision two minutes of waves crashing against a beach]] (although that was ostensibly to fill out the time after the episode ran short).
* ''Series/MadMen'' also does it rather graphically in "Guy Walks Into an Advertising Agency," when the person who is supposed to replace Layne Pryce gets his foot run over by a riding lawnmower, splattering several bystanders with blood.
* ''Series/{{MADtv}}'':
** There's Paul Timberman, a woodworker that constantly injures himself using tools. [[HighPressureBlood And]] [[{{Fingore}} boy]] [[EyeScream does]] [[ChunkySalsaRule he]] [[YourHeadAsplode injure]] [[LudicrousGibs himself.]]
** A later season skit has John Madden do this to himself while assembling a birdhouse using ordinary handheld power tools.
* ''Series/{{Victorious}}'': In "Tori Gets Stuck" Robbie picks up a bag of blood Tori just donated only to drop it causing it to explode and splatter the both of them. In fact, this very scene is the page picture for the show's [[Radar/{{Victorious}} copiously filled Radar page.]]
* The relationship between this trope and CrossesTheLineTwice is discussed by comedy writer Matt Albie on ''Studio60OnTheSunsetStrip'' -- he complains about an (unseen) sketch, "Creator/QuentinTarantino's Hallmark Movie 'Turkey Won't Die'", that a clueless special-effects guy ruins by curtailing the scripted excessive blood:
--> '''Danny''': He didn't think it was realistic.
--> '''Matt''': The prop guy?
--> '''Danny''': Yeah.
--> '''Matt''': It's called "Quentin Tatantino's Hallmark Movie, ''Turkey Won't Die.''" It's about a mortally wounded bird that will not die, ''even as it's being served.'' Did he find the premise realistic?... If [[{{Gorn}} geysers of blood are gushing out]], then I get the Tarantino joke, and [[BloodyHilarious it's funny]]. If it's just a ''realistic'' amount of blood, then it's... ''[[{{Squick}} extremely]]'' disturbing...
* Bobby on ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'' throws an okami into a wood chipper, and the LudicrousGibs mostly land on the lady he was saving from the okami.
* On the second-season ''Series/TwoBrokeGirls'' episode "And the Egg Special," Caroline changes her mind about donating her eggs to raise money for the cupcake shop and pulls out her IV, leading to blood spraying all over the clinic walls (and an IronicEcho of a scene earlier in the episode).
* ''Series/DropTheDeadDonkey''. Globelink News decides to do a Crimewatch program. Thanks to Gus Hedges desire to outdo Creator/QuentinTarantino, a so-called 'reconstruction' of a post office robbery in Dalston involves an old lady getting her [[TeethFlying dentures knocked out]] and a postal worker shotgunned to dead in SlowMotion with his blood splattering a FanserviceExtra blonde who responds by tearing open her dress to properly show off her cleavage.

[[folder:Music]]
* That's how "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H87cdtFuROM Duck Grinder]]" by Powerglove begins.
* The song "Schlaflied" (Lullaby) by German band Die Ärzte is all about this. While it's entirely in the style of a nursery rhyme, the lyrics are constantly getting gorier and more bizarre.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Myth and Legend]]
* In NorseMythology, part of the creation story can be viewed this way, making this OlderThanTheyThink. When the frost giant Ymir is murdered for no particular reason, he bleeds so much a race of ''giants'' drown in his blood. Except for two, because they had a ''boat''.
** Then Odin and his brothers used the flesh and blood of Ymir to make Midgard. They made the sky from his skull. The blood? That's what's known as the "ocean".

[[folder:Pinball]]
* Being a game from 3D Realms, ''VideoGame/BallsOfSteel'' is loaded with this.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' has the Orks who ride this trope full stop, when they aren't being used as [[BloodKnight horrendous space-faring barbarians]]. That particular 'verse otherwise uses horrendous death to enhance the setting's GrimDark atomsphere.
** [[CrossesTheLineTwice Orks crosses da line]] [[MoreDakka MORE DAKKA]]!
* ''TheSpoils'' seems to aim for this, often including sardonic one-liners as flavor text on its more [[{{Gorn}} gruesome]] cards.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Video Games]]
* The entire purpose of the Bloody Mess trait/perk in the ''VideoGame/{{Fallout}}'' series, and a good amount of combat besides. In ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'', even without the perk, a grenades or gunshots can blow limbs or faces off, and the first time a headshot [[OffWithHisHead shears a person's entire head off]] (or ''[[YourHeadAsplode blows it away]]''), it's rather grotesque. After a few times seeing [[LudicrousGibs eyeballs rain down]], though, it quickly launches into the humor category.
** In ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'' Moira will eventually give you a chemical that was supposed to drive off molerats. Instead their heads explode.
** The ''Fallout'' 1/2 animations were pretty insane. Blowing someone up with a shotgun could put a gigantic hole through them, disintegrating the arm and turning the torso into a crescent-shaped mess. It really has to be seen to be believed.
** ''Videogame/FalloutNewVegas'' brings us the Bloody Mess perk once again, and reinforces it with a generous amount of WreakingHavok and several new weapons with even more ridiculous end results, including old favorites like the [[GatlingGood Gatling]] [[BeamSpam laser]] and new friends like the [[{{BFG}} anti-materiel]] [[SniperRifle rifle]]. It is possible to turn enemies into [[LudicrousGibs a collection of chunky paste]] with a single BB, and you haven't laughed until you've killed someone uphill of yourself and watched their [[EyesAreUnbreakable dismembered eyeballs]] bouncing downhill past you.
* VideoGame/{{Fallout}}'s 1988 SpiritualPredecessor ''VideoGame/{{Wasteland}}'', on the other hand, didn't have all these fancy-schmancy 3D graphics and sprite technology, making do with simple, written descriptions of how you just turned your enemy into a ''"chunky meat kibble."''
** The upcoming sequel, ''VideoGame/{{Wasteland 2}}'', on the other hand, keeps the poetically brutal written descriptions while still utilizing its new 3D graphics engine to its fullest capability, allowing you to watch as an enemy's ''entire torso explodes from a critical hit, their legs staggering forwards before falling to the ground.''
* ''AmericanMcGeesGrimm'' just loves its ridiculously bloody cartoon violence.
* The sheer, unbelievable quantity of gore in ''RiseOfTheTriad'' with the [[FunWithAcronyms Engine Killing Gibs]] cheat activated qualifies, especially with ''severed hands wagging their middle fingers'' flying across the screen.
* The ''MortalKombat'' series in general tended in this direction. The blood was so copious from every single punch that a few seconds would be expected to exsanguinate the player, and fatalities were often so over the top it became hilarious. Self parodied with the Babalities and Animalities.
* ''VideoGame/DwarfFortress'' Adventure Mode: The game where you can beat dragons to death [[GoodBadBugs with a sock]] or go on a genocidal rampage with a severed elf leg. [[CruelPlayerCharacterGod Fortress Mode]] lets you drop goblins onto walls of [[{{Unobtanium}} adamantine]] buzzsaws, splattering blood for dozens of feet around. You ''will'' start grinning after seeing a few would-be invaders reduced to [[ChunkySalsaRule goblin salsa]].
** Toady's developer log is great resource for this:
---> "During the test (a 20 sword free-for-all), a guy got stabbed in the lower body twice, his guts popped out, and then a third guy came up and severed his exposed guts, so that all seems to be working."
---> "The dwarf Zach had selected didn't have any surgical experience. As I was watching, blood splattered on the walls and floor, and another dwarf ran over to diagnose the patient again, while the dabbling surgeon moved between repairing the compound fracture and trying to stop bleeding from malpractice. Eventually it was time to suture up the wound, and the dabbling surgeon did this... then again... then again... our poor patient had four sutures in his left wrist before I got the bug figured out."
* This can happen with a little effort (or luck) in a few of the ''[[VideoGame/DarkForcesSaga Jedi Knight]]'' games. By activating the dismemberment cheat, enemies who have their hands cut off by your lightsaber will fall to their knees and grab their severed wrist in agony for a few seconds, before falling down dead. If you quickly severe their ''head'' during that animation, the now-headless body will continue lamenting the loss of its hand.
* There was a tiny little game called Jump'n'Bump, featuring ''very'' cute little rabbits that the players controlled. Very cute, until you realised the point of the game was to jump on top of the other rabbits, resulting in an explosion of bloody rabbit parts.
* ''GearsOfWar'' has always had some downright brutal deaths, but Gears 3 features a unique execution for the Locust where they [[GrievousHarmWithABody tear off their victim's arm and beat them to death with it.]]
* ''DeadRising'' features a few ways, though most notable is [[ThisIsADrill The Excavator.]] Impale a zombie with it, and let the laughs ensue as you walk around, spinning zombie corpse beating down other zombies with its flailing limbs.
* ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' often takes this route, most notably when your character meets an [[LudicrousGibs explosive death]] and the game enthusiastically points out where your scattered bits are in the subsequent screenshot. There's also an unlockable item called "The Bombonicon" that causes your player to [[StuffBlowingUp "explode spectacularly upon death"]], regardless of how they're killed.
** Several of the "Meet the Team" sketches also wander into this trope's territory, such as "Meet the Sandvich," from which the first of the two page quotes was taken. What makes the deaths even funnier is that the characters all look like they're from a {{Pixar}} movie. Subverted with "Meet the Pyro" where the violence becomes a lot more disturbing when contrasted with the SugarBowl sequences (however, some thought ''Meet the Pyro'' was terrifying, while others thought it was one of the funniest animated shorts ever made).
* The whole point of ''VideoGame/MadWorld'' is to kill enemies in the most creative, elaborate ways possible to score more points. The gore is so over the top that things that would normally be morbid just [[CrossesTheLineTwice run right back into funny]]. The executions of the bosses, often with their own weapons, are particularly ridiculous.
* Much like ''VideoGame/MadWorld'', ''VideoGame/{{Bulletstorm}}'' combines this with TheJoysOfTorturingMooks. You get points for turning enemies into human fireworks, feeding them to local wildlife, bowling them over with cannonballs, kicking them into spikes, live wires, off cliffs... If you're brutal enough, the other mooks stop to gawk. It's a rather samey FPS, if you play it like an actual shooter and not a MurderSimulator.
* In ''VideoGame/{{Psychonauts}}'', you can stomp lungfish into a bloody pulp in Lungfishopolis. And it's awesome.
* This is the entire concept of the [=iOS=] game ''VideoGame/FunRun''.
* ''VideoGame/WildStar'' is rife with this. Exemplified by the Exploding Mammodin quest in Deradune, where you kill poachers using mind-controlled rhinos that have explosives as large as them strapped on their backs.
* ''VideoGame/{{Skullgirls}}'' has so much {{gorn}}, particularly from Ms. Fortune, a cat girl who fights by seperating her limbs, jettisoning blood to move around, and tangling enemies in muscles.
* ''VideoGame/SurgeonSimulator2013''. The whole point of the game is to perform surgeries using a combination of {{Waggle}} and WreakingHavok, with no regard for actual procedure, biology, or cleanliness. As such, you'll be happily breaking apart a person's ribcage with a hammer before tearing out their internal organs with your bare hands and casually tossing them aside to make room for the replacement parts.
* ''VideoGame/SoldierOfFortune''. Limbs sent flying with protruding bones and squirting blood? Check. Disembowelment? Check. Skull and/or jaw blown off? Check. Brains splattered? Check. Body reduced to [[LudicrousGibs unidentifiable chunks]]? Checkmate.
* ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoV'': [[spoiler:Molly]]'s incredibly messy ending via TurbineBlender is both this and NightmareFuel. None of it is censored, but it happens so out of the blue and so little of [[spoiler:her]] is left to bury that it's bound to make many a player laugh and be grossed out.

[[folder:Web Animation]]
* ''WebAnimation/HappyTreeFriends''. Watch an episode, and Bloody Hilarious is absolutely guaranteed.
* ''GoodbyeKitty'' is similar to the above, except it's always one character (Black Kitty) who suffers the abuse.
* All over Dave "Shmorky" Kelly's [[TheFlashTub FlashTub]]. Being a [[BlackComedy product]] of SomethingAwful, this should be of surprise to absolutely no one.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* ''Webcomic/EightBitTheater'' does this a lot, usually either ''to'' or ''because of'' [[ChewToy Black Mage]]. To his credit, BM had nothing to do with the geysers of blood resulting from Black Belt's second death. Sort of - he was the one who turned BB to stone. And dumped his body head-first into a lake of Mountain Dew.
* ''Webcomic/ChoppingBlock'': "Butch always felt the term 'gallows humour', while accurate, was redundant."
* [[RunningGag In many]] of the comic strips featuring Taro in his job as a butcher in ''Webcomic/{{Sakana}}'' he cuts fish with such a vigor that the [[HighPressureBlood blood splatters all over the place.]] [[Funny/{{Sakana}} And it ALWAYS leads to hilarious situations]].
* ''Webcomic/PennyArcade'' does this occasionally. The best example has to be Gabe's solution for the [[http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2004/10/11/ hiccups]].
* ''Webcomic/BobAndGeorge'' uses this trope in one [[http://www.bobandgeorge.com/archives/040305 series]] [[http://www.bobandgeorge.com/archives/040306 of]] [[http://www.bobandgeorge.com/archives/040307 strips]].
--> '''Proto Man:''' For Christ's sake! Doesn't this room have a drain?!
* ''Webcomic/{{Bug|Martini}}'' and [[http://www.bugcomic.com/comics/im-confused/ a flock of geese]]. ([[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H87cdtFuROM In case you want some background music with this]])
* ''Webcomic/TheWaterPhoenixKing'' uses this trope several times, particularly in Chapter 1 ([[SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism Setting the tone?]]) and the Commander has some good ones, as a DeadpanSnarker, too:
--> '''Bandit:''' Well, look at this. Little ''girl'' got herself a ''sword.'' I say we take her back-- '''''[[StockScream AAAAH]]!'''''
--> '''War-Weasel Handler:''' Kill, my pet. '''''[[StockScream AAAAAHhhh]]'''''
--> '''Arduna:''' Guess ''their'' passage spilled out here, too. Sorry. Guess I shouldn't say, ''"spilled out."''
--> '''Corva:''' [[DefiantToTheEnd Can I have my hatchet back?]]
%% * Bloody Hilarious gets mixed with {{Gorn}} in ''Webcomic/{{Carnies}}''.
%% * Richard in ''Webcomic/LookingForGroup'' -- way too many examples to list. The best one might be [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fcbazH6aE2g the movie trailer.]]
%% * [[http://www.sluggy.com/daily.php?date=000711 Done]] [[http://www.sluggy.com/daily.php?date=070407 many]] [[http://www.sluggy.com/daily.php?date=080912 times]] [[http://www.sluggy.com/daily.php?date=040603 in]] ''Webcomic/SluggyFreelance''. It helps when half of all violent acts are represented by the sound effect "Glitch!"

[[folder:Web Original]]
* Creator/DonHertzfeldt's ''WesternAnimation/{{Rejected}}''.
-->"My anus is bleeding!"\\
"Yaaaaaaaay!"
* ''Roleplay/RubyQuest'' combines this with a subversion of TheseHandsHaveKilled during the last run to escape, when Tom encounters Filbert while carrying Jay - Tom thought that was pretty cool.
* The "Teen Girl Squad" segments of ''WebAnimation/HomestarRunner'' are prime examples - crudely-drawn stick figures being killed in ridiculous ways.
* In ''ItalianSpiderman'', whenever the eponymous hero kills with his hands, the wounds he inflicts are ridiculously over the top. In one instance, he gorily decapitates a {{Mook}} with one hand.
* Website/YouTube videos like Tha Cliff.
* ''WebVideo/{{Smosh}}'' is all over this trope in the two-part vid "A Smoshy Christmas," which adds to the BlackComedy by being a cute claymation video.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Metalocalypse}}'' is pretty much made of this trope.
* ''WesternAnimation/AquaTeenHungerForce''.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Squidbillies}}'', most of the time from the Sheriff(s) and Rusty.
* ''WesternAnimation/DrawnTogether''.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'': The ShowWithinAShow ''The Itchy And Scratchy Show''. Its entire premise is Scratchy the cat being horribly and graphically murdered by Itchy the mouse in every episode. As a parody of the often surprising amount of violence present in real kids' shows, this one inevitably goes to town with the deaths, which get sillier and more over-the-top by the episode.
* ''Loads'' of this in ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark''. Especially with regards to [[TheyKilledKenny Kenny's various deaths]]. (There are also less graphic variants, like [[EveryCarIsAPinto vehicles exploding for no reason]].)
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Superjail}}''.
* Most of Brock Samson's kills in ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers''.
* ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken'' has a ''MortalKombat'' skit in which Johnny Cage recovers from Kano's Fatality through a heartwarming montage, only to have Kano do it again at his welcome back party.
* ''WesternAnimation/CelebrityDeathmatch''.
* The ''WesternAnimation/BeavisAndButthead'' episodes "Nose Bleed" and "Woodshop".
* The ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' episode "Tip of the Zoidberg"
-->'''Zoidberg:''' (*hits Fry's hand with a mallet*)
-->'''Fry:''' Aagh! Blood!
-->'''Zoidberg:''' (*shocked tone*) Blood?! I mean, (*enthusiastic tone*) blood!
-->'''Fry:''' Put it back in me!
** And later:
-->'''Leela:''' ''(hopping around the operating table with her [[WhoNeedsTheirWholeBody upper torso]])'' All you had to do was stop cutting my spine when I yelled "Stop! You're cutting my spine!"
** Fry's deaths in [[GrandFinale "Meanwhile"]] are very over the top, with Fry getting splattered into a pile of guts.
-->'''Leela:''' [[LampshadeHanging Fry sure has a lot of blood for a skinny guy.]]
* ''WesternAnimation/KorgothOfBarbaria''
* The final scene of the ''Cops and Roger'' episode of ''AmericanDad'' involves Roger trying to escape from a crooked cop by climbing a hanging chain. When the guy tries to shoot him, Roger lets go of the chain and falls down, smashing the man's head with his elbow. [[LudicrousGibs His head explodes,]] [[SlowMotion which is then replayed]] ''[[SlowMotion twice]]'' [[SlowMotion in slow motion]] [[LudicrousGibs with details like ear wax oozing out of one side and an eyeball flying off.]]
--> '''Roger:''' That was unexpected.
