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?"
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.
