Top 10 Most Violent Cartoons

The Top Ten
1 Happy Tree Friends Happy Tree Friends is an adult animated flash series created and developed by Aubrey Ankrum, Rhode Montijo, Kenn Navarro and Warren Graff for Mondo Media.

If you genuinely think this is a kids' show...

Watch an episode of it. Skip the intro if you want. The violence's not in the intro. It's later in the actual episode. Kind of disturbing how this is a lot of people's CHILDHOOD FAVORITE (glad it isn't mine because this is DEFINITELY not for kids. I did watch it when I was bored during quarantine, and by then it didn't phase me as much since I wasn't 8 or smth).

Fun Fact (spoilers): There's some imaginary serial killer in the show named Mr. Pickles, and then there's a violent show on this list named Mr. Pickles.

Happy Tree Friends is super gory, violent, disgusting, sadistic & cute. I like it that way & wouldn't loke it many other ways. I'm not some sadistic person who hates every drop of sunshine. I hate most 70% of sunshine but me & others who love this cartoon watch it because we hope our favorite character(s) survive till the end & we love dark humor, so the unbelievable deaths make it a bit more interesting.

Why the HELL would anyone enjoy watching this? This is "humor"? It's stupid and has no meaning, plot, interesting villains, complex characters, epic and dramatic fight scenes...nothing!

It's literally just fuel for zoosadists!

This is pretty disgusting. I had a grossed-out face the whole time while watching this. However, it is well put together and thinks up creative ways for characters to die.

2 Mr. Pickles Mr. Pickles is an American animated television series created by Will Carsola and Dave Stewart for Adult Swim. The series revolves around the Goodman family, especially their 6-year-old son named Tommy and the family's border collie, the demonic Mr. Pickles. The series was picked up for 10 quarter-hour episodes for its first season, which premiered on the network on September 21, 2014, and ended on November 23, 2014. It was renewed for a second season, which premiered on April 17, 2016, and ended on June 26, 2016.

I've heard this is just some dog who goes around killing everyone. Obviously, this is going to be here if THAT's what this show is about.

I think this definitely wins it. This is literally satanic. It's basically a dog ripping out poor people's guts out.

3 Drawn Together Drawn Together is an American adult animated sitcom which ran on Comedy Central from October 27, 2004 to November 14, 2007. The series was created by Dave Jeser and Matt Silverstein, and uses a sitcom format with a TV reality show setting.
4 Family Guy Family Guy is an American adult animated sitcom created by Seth MacFarlane for the Fox Broadcasting Company. The series centers on the Griffins, a family consisting of parents Peter (Fat, Idiotic Dad) and Lois (Nagging Bitchy Wife), their children Meg (Socially Awkward Daughter) Chris (Fat, Idiotic Son), and Stewie (Sociopathic and Genuine Infant); and lastly Brian (Anthromorphic Pet Dog). The show is set in the fictional city of Quahog, Rhode Island, and exhibits much of its humor in the form of cutaway gags that often American culture. more.

I'm not at all saying this isn't violent. I remember there being a scene where Peter Griffin plays GTA V, and goes on to commit some of the same atrocities IRL.

The later seasons in particular feature blood and gore in almost every episode.

5 South Park South Park is an American adult animated sitcom created by Trey Parker and Matt Stone for the Comedy Central television network. The show is about four boys, who are Stan Marsh, Kyle Broflovski, Eric Cartman, and Kenny McCormick, and their adventures in South Park, Colorado.

The Woodland Critters is very disturbing and some of Kenny's deaths are pretty disturbing as well.

Eric Cartman... need I say more?

Also, Kenny dies a LOT. South Park would absolutely suck to live in.

One of the most controversial cartoons. Kenny just kept dying in a row of episodes.

Two words: Kenny's deaths.

6 Invader ZIM Invader Zim is an American animated television series created by Jhonen Vasquez for Nickelodeon. The series centers on an extraterrestrial named Zim from the planet Irk, and his mission to conquer Earth and enslave the human race along with his malfunctioning robot servant GIR.

The episode "Dark Harvest" might be the only reason why this show is ranked so high. The only moment as violent, graphic, or gross is during the episode "Rise of the Zit Boy" when Zim's pimple gets to the size of a hot air balloon and pops, unleashing so much puss and liquid or "Planet Jackers" when Zim's head is bashed to a pulp.

Remember when Zim plucks Keef's eyes out?

7 The Powerpuff Girls The Powerpuff Girls is an American animated television series created by animator Craig McCracken for Cartoon Network. The main characters of this show are Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup. The show is about the Professor Utonium creating three little superhero girls that save the day from villains. This show has an anime spinoff made in Japan, three specials, a movie in theatres, and a reboot. The show aired from 1998 to 2005.

The violence was even more violent than Tom and Jerry and Looney Tunes in the earlier seasons, but like those shows, The original Powerpuff Girls is awesome!

One of the few kids cartoons that showed blood. (In some episodes and in the intro)

8 Metalocalypse Metalocalypse is an American animated television series, created by Brendon Small and Tommy Blacha, which premiered on August 6, 2006 on Adult Swim.

This show looks like it's going to be violent from the start, and guess what? It is.

9 Tom and Jerry Tom and Jerry is an American animated series of comedy short films created in 1940 by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera. Best known for its 161 theatrical short films by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, the series centers on a rivalry between the title characters Tom, a cat, and Jerry, a mouse. Many shorts also feature several recurring characters.

I'm not going to say this isn't violent. This is VERY violent. It's mostly cartoon-like violence and not gory like HTF and Mr. Pickles.

This is easily the best cartoon series in existence! It's pretty violent, but the violence is still very funny!

This should be higher and it's the best cartoon ever I guess ita the most violent of kids cartoons

10 Beavis and Butt-Head Beavis and Butt-Head is an American animated sitcom created and designed by Mike Judge. The series originated from Frog Baseball, a 1992 short film by Judge originally aired on Liquid Television.
The Contenders
11 Uncle Grandpa Uncle Grandpa is an American animated television series created by Peter Browngardt for Cartoon Network that premiered on the network on September 2, 2013. The series is based on Browngardt's animated short of the same name from The Cartoonstitute.

There is a short in uncle grandpa called new experiences with beary nice and hot dog person.Where beary nice gets a happy new experience where the hot dog person gets sting ripped opened he gets eating by birds and more, he dies sometimes!

For a kids show its super violent. Characters get killed uncle grandpas head fly of off of his body one time a character gets its body ripped in to pieces very violent.take power puff girls off now!

My rating is Tv14 for violence.

12 Superjail! Superjail! is an American animated television series produced by Augenblick Studios in its first season, and by Titmouse, Inc. in its second, third, and fourth seasons. A fourth season was confirmed on the Twitter page of David Wain, who voices the character of the Warden. The series follows the events that take place in an unusual prison. The pilot episode aired on television on May 13, 2007, and its first season began on September 28, 2008 on Adult Swim. Superjail! is characterized by its psychedelic shifts in setting and plot and extreme graphic violence, which give the series a TV-MA-V (for graphic violence, including scenes of bloodshed, dismemberment, torture, and extreme cruelty) rating. more.

I've actually decided to watch some of this, and I can confirm that this is violent and gory. This definitely looks like something that would be in the top 10, but it's not.

I love this show! This is more violent than half the shows in the top 10!

Should be #1. It's obvious a lot of people have never seen superjail!.

This is so awful

13 Rick and Morty Rick and Morty is an American adult animated science fiction sitcom created by Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon for Adult Swim.

Many scenes of this show is too violent and Rick is one of the violent characters in cartoons.

This show is amazing. It has violence and sex

Oh boy is this an adult show.

14 The Simpsons The Simpsons is an American animated sitcom created by Matt Groening that originally started on April 19, 1987 as shorts on The Tracey Ullman Show. It got its own series on December 17, 1989 and is still running as of 2023, making it the longest running animated sitcom. It is about a man named Homer Simpson and his family (wife Marge and children Bart, Lisa and Maggie and pets, Snowball II and Santa's Little Helper) going through a long series of misadventures.
15 Axe Cop
16 The Ren and Stimpy Show The Ren & Stimpy Show, often simply referred to as Ren & Stimpy, is an American animated television series created by John Kricfalusi for Nickelodeon.

The show wasn't violent but just ridiculously violent. You know what violence is? Watch Man's Best Friend and see what I mean.

This is so violent. It should be in the top 5

17 Invincible

The Violence in this show will make anyone squirm especially adults if you're gonna watch this show you'll see what I mean.

18 Archer
19 Looney Tunes Looney Tunes is an American animated series of comedy short films produced by Warner Bros. from 1930 to 1969 during the golden age of American animation, alongside its sister series Merrie Melodies.

Like Tom and Jerry, this is VERY violent, but mostly in a cartoonish sort of way. Still, it's violent, and nothing will change that.

20 SpongeBob SquarePants SpongeBob SquarePants is an American animated television series created by marine biologist and animator the late Stephen Hillenburg for Nickelodeon. SpongeBob is currently the most popular show on Nickelodeon, as well as the longest running show, running for 23 years, and is beginning its 13th season. The show revolves around a sea sponge called SpongeBob SquarePants and his adventures under the sea. The show is considered to be one of the best Nickelodeon and cartoon shows of all time.

This was a part of LOTS of people's childhoods (and mines as well), but I won't say it isn't violent. Some episodes, Bikini Bottom gets destroyed. In one episode (spoilers), King Neptune's son (Triton) uses his laser to spell out his name in the middle of the city, destroying it in the process.

One Coarse Meal, Squid's Visit, A Pal For Gary and the toenail scene from House Fancy are the violent ones. But the rest of the cartoon isn't.

Its not just violent, it has many inappropriate jokes in it too

21 Battle For Dream Island
22 Hazbin Hotel Hazbin Hotel is an American adult animated musical comedy series created by Vivienne "VivziePop" Medrano. It revolves around Charlie Morningstar, demon and princess of Hell, on her quest to find a way for other demons to be "rehabilitated" and allowed into Heaven, so she opens a rehabilitation hotel that offer demons a chance at redemption and to be better people. The pilot, released to YouTube on October 28, 2019, was made entirely by freelance animators and was largely financed by Medrano's Patreon followers. more.
23 Corpse Party: Tortured Souls

The very name of the show and the image used for it here...

It really doesn't need any more explaining why it's there. It doesn't bother looking kid-friendly like HTF. It just shows its violent from the very start.

24 King Star King King Star King is an American animated web series created by JJ Villard and Eric Kaplan for Adult Swim. The series aired on the network's online video streaming service Adult Swim Video on June 15, 2014.
