** Only a single part of Violet's body swells up and pops, but not all of her, and she's injured but fine.

Added DiffLines:



* '''Downplayed''': BalloonBelly.




* '''PlayedForLaughs''': After defeating Violet, [[TheChick Alice]] stabs her in the back, which somehow causes her to inflate to enormous proportions until she explodes. It's bloodless, but as weird as it sounds.
* '''PlayedForDrama''': Violet's explosion is [[NauseaFuel incredible graphic and shows everything in grotesque detail]].

''' Alice''': Well, [[BondOneLiner she always did have a inflated opinion of herself]].\\
