Playing With / Bloodier and Gorier

Basic Trope: A sequel, remake, or adaptation of a work is much more violent and gory than the original.
  • Straight: The original work made frequent use of Gory Discretion Shots, but the remake shows everything in its full glory.
  • Exaggerated: The original work had no violence whatsoever, but the remake is full of Gorn.
  • Downplayed:
    • Darker and Edgier
    • Denser and Wackier: The original work was pale and subdued, but the sequel is full of cartoonish violence.
    • The original work had a scene of a guy cutting himself. The remake ups the ante by showing visible blood, but there is no violence other than that.
  • Justified: The original work's use of Bloodless Carnage and Gory Discretion Shots was very awkward and was the result of censorship, so the new film adaptation just showed the violence instead.
  • Inverted: The Lighter and Softer film adaptation removes all the violence that was in the original.
  • Subverted: The trailer for the film adaptation makes it look much more violent than the original, but it's actually not.
  • Double Subverted: ...At least, until the second half of the film rolls along, and makes Quentin Tarantino look like Walt Disney.
  • Parodied: The remake starts with a scene of ridiculously over-the-top violence, then cheerily informs the viewer that now that they've gotten the obligatory violence increase done with, the story can continue as planned.
  • Zig Zagged: Different parts of the film adaptation switch rapidly back and forth when it comes to the amount of violence.
  • Averted: The adaptation or remake has the same amount of violence as the original.
  • Enforced: The violent content is upped because the people producing the new version feel that the current version won't lure in audiences enough.
  • Lampshaded: "Are my adventures supposed to be this bloody?"
  • Invoked: "Ahahahaha! SO MUCH BLOOD! Awesome! Just what my adventures needed before!"
  • Exploited: ???
  • Defied: "Oh God, this is disgusting! From this point on, I only use tranquilizer darts!"
  • Discussed: "I don't quite remember my first adventure, but I'm sure there were no blood puddles or decapitations involved back then." "Now that you said it, I don't remember flooding everything with blood either."
  • Conversed: "Violence isn't why people like that work! Why'd they add it to the new adaptation? That seems to happen a lot."
  • Deconstructed: The sequel of not particularly violent work is full of blood and gore. Characters are not happy.
  • Reconstructed:
  • Played For Laughs: Bloody Hilarious.
