Can somebody explain why the old main image of Ratigan and Basil was removed? I thought it was a perfect fit. How is this current, generic image a better fit? It's not even from an actual film or television show.

This trope is not the same as Curb-Stomp Battle... and yet a huge portion of the examples here are NOT THIS TROPE, but rather Curb-Stomp Battle examples. Why is this allowed to continue?

Because no one has cleaned it up themselves, or taken it to TRS or Special Efforts for clean up. Why don't you?

Almost all spaghetti westerns, being directly descended from A Fistful Of Dollars, feature a No Holds Barred Beatdown of the hero. The very worst is probably in the infamous Django, in which about 30 outlaws cause their horses to tread on his hands, literally reducing them to shapeless bags of bloody pulp. He is of course then required to win a gunfight against 6 opponents.

By the way, in The Good, The Bad And The Ugly, the No Holds Barred Beatdown of Tuco by Wallace was originally about twice as long. You can see it in the extended version on the DVD, and it really is hard to watch.

Do "No Holds Barred Beatdowns" include scenes where a victim could be strong enough to fight back, but not willing to? (Ie. the scene from Beauty and the Beast, where Gaston shoots Beast with an arrow, throws him out a window, repeatedly kicks him, and taunts him saying "what's the matter beast, too kind and gentle to fight back?")

Wrong trope.
