Added DiffLines:

* In ''VisualNovel/NineHoursNinePersonsNineDoors'', all the participants of the Nonary Game have had bombs planted in their digestive tracts, which will go off if they either tamper with the bracelets mounted on their wrists or fail to find the deactivator within 81 seconds after passing through a numbered door. For those that fail, the game provides detailed, absolutely visceral descriptions of their blasted bodies.

Added DiffLines:

* The PlayerCharacter of ''VideoGame/BendyAndTheDarkRevival'' is becoming ink.


* ''VideoGame/{{OFF}}'': Elsens, who usually look like men in business suits, undergo some nasty transformations when they get pissed off/go crazy and thus become Burnt. Their heads exploding into a fountain of what seems to be blood is the least of their problems.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV: Shadowbringers'', the process of turning into a [[EldritchAbomination sin eater]] entails another sin eater implanting a portion of primordial Light into the bodies of their victims. The resultant aetherical imbalance causes the victim's skin to turn plaster white, their hair to fall out, and their body to become wrapped in a cocoon until hatching into a porcelain-white monster with a body that can be described conservatively as "twisted".


** The Draug of Solomon Island. Essentially fishmen zombies, they're a ghastly blend of dead flesh and fishy components, including tentacles, crab claws, and even coral... but all that pales into insignificance next to the way these things ''breed.'' Basically, after killing everyone in the area, they resurrect them as zombies; the Draug sea-witches implant some of them with eggs delivered from long tentacles, causing the infected zombies to swell up into hideous walking incubators, who then wander until they can find a safe patch of beach on which to plant themselves. Once they've done so, they bloat and transform into huge squishy cocoons, and once they've had enough time to grow, the pod opens to reveal a new draug. Urk.

** The Rakshasa are hideously pitiable already, what with all the thorny bindings worked through their flesh and over their eyes... but then you meet the Machine Tyrants - an entire group of Rakshasa fused into a single giant multi-headed monstrosity.
** The experiments at the Nursery. Dr Schreber managed to make use of some of the most dangerous phenomena in the Secret World and apply them to ''children.'' There's Filth exposure; there's [[FesteringFungi parasitic fungi]]; there's [[TransformationOfThePossessed demonic possession]]; there's the attempt to make child-lycanthropes into monsters who can transform into ''anything'' - and the giant misshapen Comic/IncredibleHulk-like ''thing'' haunting the forest as a result... and when one of the mutilated kids comes shambling up to [[spoiler: Lilith]] for a hug, you'd be forgiven for wondering if the ensuing NeckSnap counts as a KickTheDog moment or a MercyKill.

** It's still possible for living humans to be converted into the Draug, as was the case with the unfortunate Joe Slater. [[spoiler: Having been directly exposed to the polluted seas around the Isle of Dead Ships, he's been infected with a dose of the original Filth strain that transformed the first Viking converts; by the time you catch up with him, his left arm has been distorted into massive club of bone and coral, his right arm is covered in wriggling tentacles, and his face is pockmarked with what look like barnacles. According to the Buzzing, his internal organs are being taken over by various species of coral, and forms of sea life are living in his body cavities. Plus, judging by the VaderBreath, he's having trouble breathing on dry land.]]
** The Filth. Dear god, the Filth. Quite apart from being a MysticalPlague derived from the thoughts of {{Eldritch Abomination}}s, the symptoms are nowhere near as simple as the tarry skin and writhing tentacles you commonly see in most infectees: Dr Klein and Dr Schreber have been exposed so long that their bones and skulls are stretching out of shape - the latter looking like a monstrous parody of a gorilla, the former looking like someone tried to crossbreed a human with a [[Film/{{Alien}} Xenomorph]] [[spoiler: probably because he's been injecting the Filth directly into his brain]]. Once again, the Buzzing brings home the goods on other cases, in one case involving a woman covers in boils that explode to reveal new eyes, and another involving a trucker who carved alien runes onto his face, resulting in his head "blossoming into a bouquet of lampreys."
** Feeling short of breath in the {{Hell}} Dimensions? Don't worry! It's just ''your blood oxidizing and turning to metal in your veins!''

** A comparatively mundane example crops up in one of the Halloween 2014 stories, in which a vain woman disfigured by smallpox pesters a Wabanaki shaman for a cure. Having lost his entire family to the same outbreak, the shaman is not pleased at being bothered in his time of mourning - but gives the woman an ointment that he promises will [[ExactWords make her skin smooth]] again. And after applying it to her body, the woman finds too late that the ointment was decidedly acidic. But hey, at least it smoothed out her skin... ''right before the whole thing sloughed off''.


** The story expansion ''Torna: The Golden Country'' introduces [[spoiler:Amalthus's [[FlawedPrototype prototype Blade Eaters]] in the ending sequence, which look like a horrific cross between a Titan weapon and a Guldo. They look like demons with exposed muscle, have the human test subject's head [[NestedMouth nested in the monstrosity's mouth]], and the MadScientist that made them doesn't expect them to live long. One of these prototypes is Lora's abusive stepfather, Gort]].

* In ''VideoGame/CliveBarkersUndying'', Bethany got her final revenge on her brother Aaron by [[spoiler:chaining him inside her private dungeon and letting rats ''eat him alive'', removing his jawbone so he couldn't scream]]. Which also qualifies as YouFailBiologyForever, since removing someone's jawbone does not affect his ability to scream - the ''vocal cords'' should be removed for it. As a matter of fact, he could probably do ''nothing but scream''. Whether this makes it better or worse is probably not worth asking.

** Phone Guy mentions in [[Videogame/FiveNightsAtFreddys the first game]] that if the animatronics catch the player, they will be stuffed into a Freddy Fazbear suit, whose crossbeams, devices and wires would gore and crush them to death, leaving only their eyeballs and teeth to pop out the front of the mask (where the danger's at its worst). The Game Over screen shows this occur, by the by.

** Edgar is supposed to be a cartoon insect or something, but his two right arms are both hooked up to the same prosthetic arm. The place where his mouth is supposed to be has been sewn shut and his mouth is on the top of his head instead. One of his eyes is a normal pie-cut cartoon eye, but the other is an eyeball.

* Dark Gaia's OneWingedAngel-form from Videogame/SonicUnleashed is probably the goriest thing ever shown in a ''[[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog Sonic]]''-game. [[spoiler: Its jaw splits across its entire head as it roars loudly. It grows an extra pair of arms, which burst out of its sides with audible cracks and LOTS of AlienBlood. It gains seven more eyes, [[EyesDoNotBelongThere which are all positioned in its mouth]] and surrounded by WAY too many tongues]]. All of this is shown in [[{{Squick}} very gross]] detail.

As shown in the Land of Morytha, absorbing too many whole Core Crystals as a way to gain immortality can end up turning people into horrifying monsters known as Guldos.
