Top 10 Painful Ways to Die

The Top Ten

1 Drowning

So scary and very painful - DrayTopTens

Burned alive is so much more painful. Drowning is like a warm embrace, and being hugged to death cannot be number one on this list!

Unfortunately we are thinking too basic here I mean drowning isn't nearly as bad as slowly being cooked alive or being eaten alive by maggots, think outside the box here come on! - Bubbyboop

I would hate to drown. The idea of water filling my lungs is horrifying. - Merilille

I agree so much. Hold your breath, until you die...painful all the way through - BloodFang

You'll have no breath, you're desperate for air, and you'll be gasping until your death arrives. - Powerfulgirl10

2 Burning to death

You feel immense pain, your skin cracks and peels, fat leaks out, blood leaks out, then a dull pain will set in, body will burn for at least 3 days.

This one is the real number 1 - oldfashionedmickeymousecol1995

It would be painful to burn alive... - Songsta41

Your skin feels like it's being cooked for dinner - Nateawesomeness

3 Electrocution

I'm glad I haven't been electrocuted. - Powerfulgirl10

Lightning is unpleasant,and can make black marks on your body - Nateawesomeness

Dealing a cold blade impaling you multiple times. Brutal

5 Skinned alive

6 Getting hit by a car

I was hit by a car and survived. But I still remember it. The stench of blood and exhaust, the people crowding around me, the faint crying I could here in the distance. No, I would not want to go out this way

7 Falling from a great height

Imagine being pushed off a high building or whatever by someone and you don't have a parachute to keep you alive. Yeah. It's scary. - Powerfulgirl10

Well most people give them selves aids but some people are born with it Apollo it's not that bad

9 Severe frostbite
10 Cardiac arrest

The Contenders

11 Animal attack
12 Being beaten with a baseball bat

Can this actually kill you?! - Powerfulgirl10

13 Starvation
14 Getting ripped in half by rope

Getting pulled from one end and then another, slowly getting ripped apart - BloodFang

15 Choked
16 Beheading
17 Alkali Bath

Drowning while you watch your skin turn into liquid. Your lungs burn as they dissolve. Next comes your eyes; you can't close them because your eyelids are long gone.

I would hate for that to happen... - Powerfulgirl10

18 Plane crash

THIS wouldn't be painful, it would just be terrifying - BloodFang

19 Falling to lava

Only in Minecraft haha.

20 The tub

Slowly eaten alive by bugs...nice! 🤢. This and being skinned thank you

Known as the punishment of ‘sitting in the tub,’ the convicted person would be placed in a wooden tub with only their head sticking out. After that, the executioner would paint their faces with milk and honey; and soon, flies would begin to feed on them. The victim was also fed regularly and would end up swimming in their excrement. After a few days, maggots and worms would devour their body as they decayed alive. - Bubbyboop

Oooh! Fun!

21 Rat torture

Being in an enclosure with rats is torture enough; but apparently, this is not enough for medieval times. One of the most sadistic of all torture techniques involved having a cage with one open side strapped against the victim’s body. It would then be filled with large rodents and a heating element which would be placed on the other side of the cage. The rodents’ natural instinct led them to flee the intense heat. In order to escape they would burrow through the victim’s body with fatal results. - Bubbyboop

22 Scalped
23 Melted with sulfuric acid
24 Flesh eating disease

Thank you for introducing something much wore than anything on this list - Bubbyboop

25 Disease

Especially caner and ebola. - Powerfulgirl10

26 Black hole

You wouldn't even feel a thing, it's too quick to notice.

27 Face ripped off

No... NO! It’s giving me an image! Make it stop! MAKE IT ALL STOP!

28 Hit on the Balls
29 Getting slowly stabbed by butter knife

You've gotta be pretty weak to die from that - Songsta41

Change "butter" to "butcher" and that would sound more painful. - Powerfulgirl10

30 Suffocated
31 Snapped neck

Breaking your neck would be just brutal. - Powerfulgirl10

32 Ripped in half by an elevator

The thought of it makes me want to cringe. The way your body slowly rips apart until there is just a bloody half of you left. Disgusting, but I'd feel bad for them. - IAmNotARobot

This is actually impossible, you are too young for this website son - oldfashionedmickeymousecol1995

33 Roasted in fire
34 Crushed to death
35 Giving birth

If someone dies from this, then I don't even know what to say. - Powerfulgirl10

36 Having your organs be ripped out while alive
37 Buried alive

Should be higher - DrayTopTens

38 Evisceration
39 Hanged

Depending on how u do it, it can actually be almost painless.

40 Heart attack
41 Hanged, drawn and quartered

During medieval times, the penalty for high treason in England was to be hanged, drawn and quartered in public and though it was abolished in 1814, it has been responsible for the death of thousands of people. In this torture technique, the victim is dragged in a wooden frame called a hurdle to the place of execution. They would then be hanged by the neck for a short period of time until they are near-death (hanged), followed by disembowelment and castration where the entrails and genitalia are burned in front of the victim (drawn). The victim would then be divided into four separate parts and beheaded (quartered). - Bubbyboop

42 Brazen bull

Also known as the Sicilian Bull, it was designed in ancient Greece. A solid piece of brass was cast with a door on the side that could be opened and latched. The victim would be placed inside the bull and a fire set underneath it until the metal became literally yellow as it was heated. The victim would then be slowly roasted to death all while screaming in agonizing pain. The bull was purposely designed to amplify these screams and make them sound like the bellowing of a bull. - Bubbyboop

43 Cement shoes

If you think drowning is bad listen to this; The cement shoes were introduced by the American Mafia when they executed enemies, traitors and spies by placing their feet inside cinder blocks and then filling them up with wet cement. Once it dried, the victim would be thrown alive into a river or other deep body of water. - Bubbyboop

44 Cancer
45 Spanish Donkey
46 Drowning in acid
47 Getting shot
48 Bloody eagle

If you don't know what this is in the dark ages when the Vikings took over most of Europe a torser that they did was this - they tide a person to a wooden table cut the skin on sides were ribs are, took ribs in side pulled them back out of the body still coneted to the person put the ribs and let the person suffer when they pulled the ribs back out of the body so they look like wings of a eagle but bone wings with THE PEOPLE STILL ALIVE. after that usley a day later they died now that's the worst way to died and most people they did it to did not do anything just to torser

49 Whipping
50 Lingchi

Lingchi, translated variously as the slow process, the lingering death, or slow slicing, and also known as death by a thousand cuts, was a form of torture and execution used in China from roughly 900 CE until it was banned in 1905. It was also used in Vietnam and Korea. In this form of execution, a knife was used to methodically remove portions of the body over an extended period of time, eventually resulting in death.
this would be extremely painful
