"My blood! He-he punched out ALL MY BLOOD!"
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 becomes the joke
, turning the gruesome display into hilarity.
May involve High-Pressure Blood
, a shower of Ludicrous Gibs
, or a serving of Chunky Salsa
, but whatever the details the victim is certain to be Overdrawn at the Blood Bank
See also Gorn
, Bloody Murder
. Especially common in Black Comedy
. Often the more mature cousin to Covered in Gunge
As a Death Trope, all Spoilers will be unmarked ahead. Beware.

- 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 Mood Dissonance) and were deeply offended or disturbed instead. See No Pressure (film) on That Other Wiki for details, since the Youtube version may have been edited.
- This Japanese advertisement for tea.
Anime and Manga
- Episode 22 of Kill la Kill 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 her healing factor fails to kick in. The whole time this is happening, Nui is shooting High-Pressure Blood from where her arms used to be. Once Nui gets involuntarily rescued, she even gushes the High-Pressure Blood all over the face of her rescuer, who has no problem speaking despite that.
- In Excel Saga's 26th episode, "Going Too Far", the whole world ends up drowning in blood by the end, all puked up by Hyatt.
- Bludgeoning Angel Dokurochan: Multiple times per episode the main character is horribly mutilated or brutally murdered only to be revived seconds later.
- Ladd Russo from Baccano!! is an example of this trope in the vein of Quentin Tarantino. 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 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 Claire, Nice, and Dallas. This show is MOSTLY an example of this trope.
- In the anime 3×3 Eyes, the male protagonist Yakumo Fujii was made more or less immortal and is constantly dying or being killed. Good Thing You Can Heal, Yakumo. The more he dies, the funnier it gets.
- Death Panda by Waita Uziga.
- A serious moment during Negi's Battle in the Center of the Mind in Mahou Sensei Negima! used this as a quick gag when his High-Pressure Blood all over Chisame.
- There's also the time where Rakan wanted to test Negi's strength by having Negi punch him as hard as he could. Cue a dramatic Smoke Shield 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 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, which she ignores.
- This is one of Izumi Curtis's shticks in Fullmetal Alchemist. She's got nasty internal injuries, so often, in the middle of a Bad Ass 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.
- Soul Eater 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.
- Saitama Chainsaw Shoujo: The Axe Crazy 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 One Piece, Sanji's many instances of Nose Bleed are, without exception, played for laughs. Even when the blood loss almost kills him.
- In Yuru-Yuri, Chitose's nosebleeds can end up here. Especially in episode 13 of the first series.
- Jinrui wa Suitai Shimashita 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.
- Haiyore! Nyarko-san, being an Affectionate Parody of the Cthulhu Mythos, 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 Mahiro stabbing Nyarko with a fork as punishment for bad behavior (the series these stabbings only produce comedic lumps).
- Part of 'the Angel Beats! charm, often in tandem with Gallows Humor. It helps that Immortal Life Is Cheap is in full swing here... unless it's not. Then things like this are not nearly so funny.
- Of particular note: the time Yui accidentally hung herself with a microphone cord, or the time the entire gang got mowed down in the Guild in various 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 Say My Name for each dying character... until they get to Naoi.
Naoi: (gravely) I'll go next. (gets brutally slaughtered)
Otonashi: Isn't anyone going to say something?
Yui: I don't know his name.
- It's fairly rare for characters in Gintama to not get at minimum a nosebleed from the (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 the Elizabeth who left was just a substitute who fills in for the real one on Mondays.. It's bad enough to warrant a Violence Discretion Shot, though the copious amount of blood from it can be seen.
- This clip  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.
- Sin City 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 Spider-Man mini-series from Dark Reign. 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 Healing Factor 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.
- Johnny the Homicidal Maniac falls into this fairly often.
- The Marvel Knights Punisher series. Garth Ennis has said that one of his inspirations for the run was Itchy and Scratchy.
- Sickening example in The Lion King Adventures. 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.
- Zombons – a My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic fanfic runs on this trope. Examples include zombie Sweetie Belle sucking Apple Bloom's brain with a straw, Pound Cake ending up in a blender, or Rainbow Dash yelling at a zombie that she's going to rip his heart out and pee into the left chamber. Then she does that, luckily ofscreen.
- The Black Knight from Monty Python and the Holy Grail would not have been as funny without the geysers of blood sprouting from his severed limbs, let alone Killer Rabbit
- In their movie, Monty Pythons The Meaning Of Life, 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 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 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.
- UHF and the in-film Home Improvement TV show. Is my face red.... Of course, in the end, It's Just a Flesh Wound.
- This is the entire point of the Evil Dead sequels. Especially Evil Dead 2.
"Who's laughing now?!"
- Drag Me to Hell has a high-pressure nosebleed that results in a Crowning Moment of Funny.
- Several deaths from Hot Fuzz, 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...
- Dracula: Dead and Loving It, when 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 had not been told he would get drenched with 750 liters of blood.
- Kung Pow! Enter the Fist 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 punches a clean hole in a man with no blood whatsoever, the surprised narrator commenting on this for the next minute and a half.
- The first The Addams Family movie, when Wednesday and Pugsley do a scene from Hamlet, spraying prop blood all over the audience.
- Some have had this reaction to the throat-cutting scenes in Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street. The juxtaposition of the violent action and the gentle song was funny enough, and the unrealistic geysers of blood just made it sillier.
- 28 Days Later can cause this reaction in some people, particularly those who... er... know how much blood is actually in a person.
- Pick a Tarantino film of your choice. Well, except Reservoir Dogs. Maybe.
- Speaking of Robert Rodriguez, he indulged in this on the Sin City 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.
- Repo! The Genetic Opera 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 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.
- Peter Jackson's Braindead/Dead Alive, supposedly the inspiration for the term "splatstick." According to 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 Crowning Moment of Awesome, 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 A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984) movie. Which continues to flow on the ceiling. Epic.
- Hong Kong film Riki-Oh: The Story of Ricky. Source of the infamous "head crush" clip from The Daily Show.
- German Scare 'Em Straight workplace-safety parody film Forklift Driver Klaus 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.Find it here.
- In the commentary for Sleepy Hollow, 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 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 Cutaway Gag in the tv-movie Dark Night of the Scarecrow 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.
- Shaun of the Dead definitely deserves a mention on this page.
Points to zombie bloodstain on Shaun's shirt "You've got red on you."
- District 9 is a totally serious film, albeit laced with a dark streak of black humour. This does not make the effects of alien weaponry on people any less hilarious. Or AWESOME.
- When Machete rappels down the side of a building.... with a mook's intestines.
- The first part of A Serious Man 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 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.
- Cannibal The Musical goes into hilariously graphic detail of members of the Donner Party eating each other.
- Galaxy Quest 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.
- Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy has Channel 2's news anchor losing both arms.
- An American Werewolf in London, David's rampage at Piccadilly Circus.
- Scary Movie 5:
- Hard Revenge Milly is generally serious, but has a moment where a mook slips in a puddle of blood and falls over when chasing Milly.
- Tucker & Dale Vs. Evil is a horror-comedy Deconstructive Parody of the Hillbilly Horror 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.
Live Action TV
- That's how "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.
Myth and Religion
- In Norse Mythology, part of the creation story can be viewed this way, making this Older Than They Think. 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".
- The Bible gives us the tale of the Moabite tyrant Eglon (in the Book of Judges). Now, Eglon was oppressing the Hebrews, and God sent the left-handed Judge of Israel Ehud to assassinate him. However, Eglon was extremely fat, and when Ehud stabbed the tyrant with a full-length sword, the thing got stuck in the fat and Ehud, try as he might, could not retrieve it. What's more, Eglon's servants were just outside—but they believed that Eglon's death groans and Ehud's grunts (from trying to pull out the sword) were simply the monarch attempting to relieve himself, so they left him alone. Reading this section usually leads to some laughter.
- The entire purpose of the Bloody Mess trait/perk in the Fallout series, and a good amount of combat besides. In Fallout 3, even without the perk, a grenades or gunshots can blow limbs or faces off, and the first time a headshot shears a person's entire head off (or blows it away), it's rather grotesque. After a few times seeing eyeballs rain down, though, it quickly launches into the humor category.
- In 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.
- Fallout: New Vegas brings us the Bloody Mess perk once again, and reinforces it with a generous amount of Wreaking Havok and several new weapons with even more ridiculous end results, including old favorites like the Gatling laser and new friends like the anti-materiel rifle. It is possible to turn enemies into 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 dismembered eyeballs bouncing downhill past you.
- Fallout's 1988 Spiritual Predecessor 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, 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.
- American McGee's Grimm just loves its ridiculously bloody cartoon violence.
- The sheer, unbelievable quantity of gore in Rise of the Triad with the Engine Killing Gibs cheat activated qualifies, especially with severed hands wagging their middle fingers flying across the screen.
- The Mortal Kombat 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.
- Dwarf Fortress Adventure Mode: The game where you can beat dragons to death with a sock or go on a genocidal rampage with a severed elf leg. Fortress Mode lets you drop goblins onto walls of adamantine buzzsaws, splattering blood for dozens of feet around. You will start grinning after seeing a few would-be invaders reduced to 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 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.
- Gears of War has always had some downright brutal deaths, but Gears 3 features a unique execution for the Locust where they tear off their victim's arm and beat them to death with it.
- Dead Rising features a few ways, though most notable is 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.
- Team Fortress 2 often takes this route, most notably when your character meets an 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 "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 Sugar Bowl 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 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 run right back into funny. The executions of the bosses, often with their own weapons, are particularly ridiculous.
- Much like MadWorld, Bulletstorm combines this with The Joys Of Torturing Mooks. 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 Murder Simulator.
- In Psychonauts, you can stomp lungfish into a bloody pulp in Lungfishopolis. And it's awesome.
- This is the entire concept of the iOS game Fun Run.
- 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.
- 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.
- Surgeon Simulator 2013. The whole point of the game is to perform surgeries using a combination of Waggle and Wreaking Havok, 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.
- Soldier of Fortune. 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 unidentifiable chunks? Checkmate.
- Grand Theft Auto V: Molly's incredibly messy ending via Turbine Blender is both this and Nightmare Fuel. None of it is censored, but it happens so out of the blue and so little of her is left to bury that it's bound to make many a player laugh and be grossed out.
- Happy Tree Friends. Watch an episode, and Bloody Hilarious is absolutely guaranteed.
- Goodbye Kitty is similar to the above, except it's always one character (Black Kitty) who suffers the abuse.
- All over Dave "Shmorky" Kelly's FlashTub. Being a product of Something Awful, this should be of surprise to absolutely no one.
- 8-Bit Theater does this a lot, usually either to or because of 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.
- Chopping Block: "Butch always felt the term 'gallows humour', while accurate, was redundant."
- In many of the comic strips featuring Taro in his job as a butcher in Sakana he cuts fish with such a vigor that the blood splatters all over the place. And it ALWAYS leads to hilarious situations.
- Penny Arcade does this occasionally. The best example has to be Gabe's solution for the hiccups.
- Bob and George uses this trope in one series of strips.
Proto Man: For Christ's sake! Doesn't this room have a drain?!
- Bug and a flock of geese. (In case you want some background music with this)
- The Water Phoenix King uses this trope several times, particularly in Chapter 1 (Setting the tone?) and the Commander has some good ones, as a Deadpan Snarker, too:
Well, look at this. Little girl
got herself a sword.
I say we take her back— AAAAH!
Arduna: Guess their passage spilled out here, too. Sorry. Guess I shouldn't say, "spilled out."
- Metalocalypse is pretty much made of this trope.
- Aqua Teen Hunger Force.
- Squidbillies, most of the time from the Sheriff(s) and Rusty.
- Drawn Together.
- The Simpsons: The Show Within a Show 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.
- The Treehouse of Horror episodes are also chockful of this.
- Loads of this in South Park. Especially with regards to Kenny's various deaths. (There are also less graphic variants, like vehicles exploding for no reason.)
- Most of Brock Samson's kills in The Venture Bros..
- Robot Chicken has a Mortal Kombat 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.
- Celebrity Deathmatch.
- The Beavis And Butthead episodes "Nose Bleed" and "Woodshop".
- The 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!
Leela: (hopping around the operating table with her 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 "Meanwhile" are very over the top, with Fry getting splattered into a pile of guts.
- Korgoth of Barbaria
- The final scene of the Cops and Roger episode of American Dad! 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. His head explodes, which is then replayed twice in slow motion with details like ear wax oozing out of one side and an eyeball flying off.
Roger: That was unexpected.
