  • A Certain Magical Index: Mainly for the scene where someone gets his skin ripped off graphically by magic (hey, if Predator gets a 10 for this reason, then this applies too). Otherwise an 8.

  • Golgo 13:
    • Normally, the movie would sit at about a 6 or 7 with fairly typical action movie stuff. What mostly pushes it this high is the character Snake who commits many graphic acts over the course of the film. In particular, his absolutely brutal and realistic murder of a group of special commandos who howl in agony as he severs limbs and rips out eyes as well as his extended and mostly onscreen rape of a woman locked in a room. Other highlights of The Professional include Gold & Silver's nightmarish backstory and deaths, Snake's gruesome murder of Golgo's contacts and a man who suffers the double whammy of jumping to his death before getting shot through the forehead. That last one even includes a lovely x-ray cam that shows the bullet penetrating the skull and the guy's upper torso splattering into mush as he hits the pavement.
    • Queen Bee normally doesn't go above an 8 at the highest. What pushes it here is the character Lt. Benning who leads a raid on Queen Bee's home village. Several noncombatants and innocent civilians are shown being gunned down while soldiers are shown being murdered in several graphic ways, such as being impaled on spikes or getting stabbed through the eye. Not even children are spared in the massacre and are killed alongside the adults. There is also a very brief but descriptive conversation about Benning murdering and eating a pregnant woman and returning to base with a helicopter of human heads. Lastly, there is a (just offscreen) rape of a little girl and a strong implication that a woman who gets shot was pregnant, which means a baby was killed as well.
