'''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 [[GoryDiscretionShot 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''':
** DarkerAndEdgier
** DenserAndWackier: 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 BloodlessCarnage and {{Gory Discretion Shot}}s was very awkward and was the result of [[{{Bowdlerize}} censorship]], so the new film adaptation just showed the violence instead.
* '''Inverted''': The LighterAndSofter 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 [[NeverTrustATrailer it's actually not]].
* '''Double Subverted''': ...At least, until the second half of the film rolls along, and makes Creator/QuentinTarantino look like Creator/WaltDisney.
* '''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''': "[[DenserAndWackier Ahahahaha]]! [[VideoGame/TeamFortress2 SO MUCH BLOOD]]! [[BloodKnight Awesome]]! Just what my adventures needed before!"
* '''Exploited''': ???
* '''Defied''': "Oh God, [[{{Squick}} this is disgusting]]! From this point on, [[ThouShaltNotKill 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." "[[FridgeLogic 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''':
** The sequel of not particularly violent work is full of blood and gore...AndThereWasMuchRejoicing?
** Alternatively, the TokenEvilTeammate is delighted at the turn of events.
