There Is No Kill Like Overkill / Web Original

  • Mr. Welch is forbidden from doing so.
    29. I cannot have any gun that requires me to continue the damage code on the back.
    416. I will not substitute accuracy with enthusiasm.
    383. It is not ok to use 10,000 rounds to kill two sentries.
    589. If my gun on a scale of 1-10 is a 7, it's vetoed if that's the Richter scale.
    808. Covering fire does not include nuclear weapons.
    901. In the middle of the Black Ops a diversion is not blowing off the top twenty floors of the building.
    1016. Even if spells are use them or lose them, I will not waste Meteor Swarms on a goblin.
    1167. I can stop rolling at 7x dead.
    1257. No, the answer to the problem is not to make a gatling gun out of bazookas.
    1357. Preliminary saturation carpet bombing is not automatically Plan A.
    1517. Checking to see if the Mad Slasher is dead is ok, dismembering him with a shotgun is overkill.

  • Corus From the Multiverses FCP completely and utterly obliterates Perfect Darkness, calling upon his other personality's inter-dimensional horde of boltzmann brains to destroy him.
  • Survival of the Fittest, to the point where some wryly observe it's almost a competition to see who can fabricate the most over-the-top, graphic death possible.
    • Jin Li-Jen being practically ripped to shreds by Walter Smith (eviscerated, castrated and decapitated).
    • Kara Holmes. Villain Blood Boy slices off her foot, shoves it into her mouth, breaking her jaw and blows the aforementioned jaw off with firecrackers before leaving her to suffocate.
    • Rick Holeman, who gets shot, stabbed, then stabbed again, and again, and again, basically mutilated by the time the fight is over. It's rather justified, however, seeing how incredibly hard he was to kill.
  • Red vs. Blue: Reconstruction: after he's already killed Agent South, Agent Washington goes on to dispose of the body by shooting at it, incinerating it, and detonating a bunch of exploding crates next to it. This is apparently standard procedure.
    • In order to explain away not having an Agent Florida, Councilor blows up the entire physical state of Florida. Yeah.
  • In Linkara's Let's Play of Star Trek: Voyager: Elite Force, he gets freaked out by small rodent-like enemies and chases them around with a handheld Photon Torpedo launcher. After blasting them (and getting hit with a little splash damage), he muses "Maybe that was a little too much", followed by a caption that reads "But totally worth it."
  • The Necro Critic tries to get out of reviewing Van Helsing: The London Assignment by destroying the DVD. His methods included stabbing it, smashing it, running over it with a lawnmower, setting the debris on fire, baking the ashes into a cake, eating it, crapping it out, burning it AGAIN, selling those ashes to a coke-head, shooting him after snorting it, and blowing up the guys house. It somehow reappears in his hand not ten seconds later.
  • In the second RP of Darwin's Soldiers, Shelton empties an entire pistol magazine killing Delta Leader. Justified, since he doesn't know how to use a weapon, and an unspecified majority of the bullets missed.
  • The displacement cannon from Orion's Arm is absurdly powerful. It fires a "bubble" of compressed space-time that is the size of an atom, infinitely maneuverable and travels at the speed of light. When it reaches the target it travels between the molecules in its armor and then collapses to release an swarm of monopoles that convert the mass of the target directly into energy, virtually assuring its destruction. How much overkill is this? A single displacement cannon destroyed a fleet of 10000 ships in four seconds.
  • In A Robo Western, This is how the Sheriff Bot deals with One Eye.
  • Anything done to SCP-682 tends to end up like this. Seeing as it adapts to whatever is thrown at it and wants to kill us all, this makes a bit of sense.
    • A good example would have to be using SCP-272 on it. SCP-272 is a iron nail that, in the proper conditions, pins someone's shadow to the ground and will not let it go. If the shadow's length is forcefully changed due to the environment, it will pull the person closer to it to keep the shadow embedded under the nail. Thus, if the shadow is changed quickly enough, you can expect the subject to be thrown a large distance. The SCP Foundation decided to use (quoted from the linked page) "a circular array of thirty (30) two-thousand-watt (2,000W) stadium lights" to enact such damage on a large scale. "All thirty stadium lights are then switched on and off in random stroboscopic 'disco' pattern, at 4 Hz. SCP-682 is forcibly hurled around the enclosure in random directions, in accordance with the stroboscopic pattern, and sustains heavy damage." After 55 minutes of this, SCP-682 had sustained damage including 63 broken teeth, severance of its back-left limb, and "its skull has been fractured to the point that both its eyeballs have been dislodged from their sockets." It then evolved luminescence brighter than the stadium lights to nullify its own shadow.
    • Another good example is having SCP-682 fight against SCP-096. SCP-096 is a small humanoid figure that utterly annihilates anything that sees its face. They battled for twenty-seven hours before the screaming stopped, and both were heavily damaged. SCP-682 lost 85% of its mass. Neither entity would even look at each other after that.
    • The Foundation once used SCP-826, a reality-warping artifact, to create a monster with two descriptive traits: it's generally nice and friendly, and it will utterly annihilate SCP-682 if it ever comes into contact with it. They warped reality to create an entity whose very being was dedicated in all ways to killing SCP-682. SCP-682 won the fight.
    • SCP-2270, titled "An Unnecessary Utilization of Extreme Force": a guy in 1994 summoned the Sumerian war god Nergal to smite his annoying neighbor.
  • The Nostalgia Critic is known to do this to movies (and one video game) he really, really hates. Example? Calling the Death Star to destroy a DVD of The Secret of NIMH 2.
  • According to [NMA] [TV] this is what happened when U.S. Special Forces caught up with Osama bin Laden.
  • Poor Justin Bieber. And the hatedom rejoiced.
  • The Protectors of the Plot Continuum have the Canon Bomb. This weapon causes powdered canon to scatter through a badfic-warped location, literally rewriting it into its correct form and dissolving every uncanonical character or object caught in the very wide blast area. Used only once for now, probably because the Agents who used it nearly got vaporized themselves (as they're not canon too).
  • Whateley Universe: Team Kimba's plans to stop Dark Tennyo in their holographic simulation training. One plan ended up with fifty blocks of (simulated) city utterly destroyed. One plan ended up wiping out the Eastern Seaboard of the U.S. and plunging the Earth into nuclear winter.
  • In Reflets d'Acide, villain Alia-Aenor's signature spell is "Mort de Masse" (Mass Death), classified as the most powerful necromancy spell in this universe. She even uses it against a bunch of thieves trying to rob her.
  • In Death Note: The Abridged Series (kpts4tv) Matt gets shot up, hit by a barrage of missiles, and NUKED.
  • This is how the Endbringers are dealt with in Worm.
    • Well, the intent is there at least. Subverted in that even an absurd level of overkill won't kill an Endbringer.
    • This is the only approach to dealing with Crawler; any damage that's not fatal will be healed near-instantly and he won't be vulnerable a second time. He's finally killed when Piggot has Bakuda's entire arsenal dropped on him with advance warning. He took it as a challenge and gleefully walked into the blasts; there are some things not even Crawler can regenerate from.
  • The driving philosophy behind almost all military advancements in Void of the Stars. Destroying one of your own planets so the enemy doesn't get to win is considered an acceptable military strategy.
  • Critical Role: Doctor Anna Ripley gets carved up, sliced in half, throttled by vines, loses her right arm, and finally catches a pair of arrows to the throat and heart courtesy of a vengeful, collective Vox Machina in retribution for killing Percy. It's immensely satisfying.
  • In Bully, Red Dress Girl is so enraged at the fact that Blue Boy cheated on her that she invites him to a café, POISONS HIS FOOD, kills the owner of said café, and then drowns Blue Boy in a toilet just to make sure he's really dead.
  • In Dragon Ball Z Abridged, Lord Slug, after blasting Goku literally 2-feet in front of him with a Colossal mouth beam cannon recites the exact line.
  • DSBT InsaniT: In VRcade, Cody defeats his (headless) Darkness counterpart by smashing a potion of Hollywood Acid into the hole in his neck, followed by a harpoon. Then he tricks a baby White Killer Eel to slither into the hole in Darkness Cody's neck, which causes him to dissolve.
    • In the same episode, Dave defeats his Darkness counterpart by pushing him through a grate until all of his body parts are severd.
