Violence and most cartoons/animations are nearly synonymous, and the two are now as prevalent as any violent TV show or movie genre ever made. Superhero and action animations almost demand it, and every person, from little kids to teenagers to adults, enjoys a little combat in their cartoons.
More severe or activity graphics can use conflict to pull off disturbing and above-fighting scenes, while comedic animation can deliver a solid laugh to viewers. Let’s look at seven of the most productive or memorable shows that use violence.
7 Most Violent Cartoons Ever Made:
1. Happy Tree Friends
- Director: Rhode Montijo and Kenn Navarro.
- Writer: Rhode Montijo and Kenn Navarro.
- Cast: Kenn Navarro, Nica Lorber, Rhode Montijo, David Winn, Dana Belben, Ellen Connell, Lori Jee, Warren Graff, Audrey Ankrum, Liz Stuart, Jeff Biancalana.
- Seasons: 5

- Release: 24 December 1999
About Happy Tree Friends:
Happy Tree Friends is a spoof of a tv series. The characters are all anthropomorphic mammals with two forward buck teeth with heart-shaped noses. In the early episodes, most of the characters took on the positions of children engaged in childish pastimes. However, as the series continued, the age notion was eliminated, and now individuals act differently, like children, adolescents, and even adults, in various episodes.
The only personalities untouched by this notion are Pop and Cub, who always act like an adult as well as a child accordingly, and characters whose duties usually are not influenced by age, including such Splendid or Cro-Marmot. The individuals are generally discovered in everyday situations at the start of each episode.
These circumstances, however, usually escalate into violence and the unavoidable deaths of people concerned and “innocent” bystanders, owing to unfortunate, unexpected incidents with some relatively harmless instruments. Several characters suffer from mental diseases, such as Flippy, who suffers from comment stress disorder due to war and will kill in specific scenarios.
Like several DVDs out, tons of merchandise, and just a successful show, Happy Tree Friends pummel into action; getting all of this from animal cruelty is brilliant and disturbing. So, I gave it a nine because it is a very intoxicating show you should watch even if you don’t like animals. I have three cats, and I still find it amusing; by the way, it is motivated; I’m not that sick.

Dethklok is a death punk band in the series that achieves unprecedented fame, ranking as the 7th largest corporation on earth by the second season’s conclusion. The creator of the series Small, characterized them as “like the Beatles, except a thousand times more hazardous and a billion times as foolish.” The imaginary band members are Nathan Dynamite, Skwisgaar Skwigelf, Pickles, William Murderface, and Toki Wartooth.
Charles Foster Offdensen is their manager. If Dethklok recommends a product or service, competitors are quickly thrown out of business. The Tribunal, an Illuminati-style work and in life to track Dethklok’s behavior and goals, has been drawn to the band’s abnormal popularity overwhelming trail of destruction.
Whenever Dethklok’s actions threaten to undermine the current quo, the Tribunal usually tries to maintain and foster widespread ignorance and rampant consumerism. The Tribunal, commanded by a complex character titled “Mr. Salacia,” operates off the idea that Dethklok’s unique powers are the outcome of an old Sumerian prophecy regarding an “Apocalypse of Metal.”
Adult Swim has decided to add a variety of new showcases over the past two years, to varying degrees of success. Regardless of how you feel about Metalocalypse, users must acknowledge that it will catch your consideration once or twice.
Without repeating the praise others have heaped on the show, it’s so intensely funny because it takes five very well-specified characters evocative of classic metal characters and brings them down to earth, easily obtainable. Instead of just standing in line to screw up horrendously in every other aspect, they do.
3. South Park
- Director: Trey Parker, Matt Stone, and Eric Stough.
- Writer: Trey Parker
- Cast: Stan Marsh, Eric Cartman, Kyle Broflovski, Kenny McCormick, Butters Stotch, Randy and Sharon Marsh, Herbert Garrison, Mr. Mackey, Gerald and Sheila Broflovski, Liane Cartman, Jimmy Valmer, Tolkien Black, Wendy Testaburger, Clyde Donovan.

About South Park:
Stan Marsh, Kyle Broflovski, Eric Cartman, and Kenny McCormick are the four main characters of South Park. The brothers live in the fictional tiny town of South Park, located inside the genuine South Park basin inside the Mountain Range of central Colorado, roughly a one-hour drive from Denver. The village is also inhabited by various characters, including students, relatives, elementary school employees, and other citizens.
Prominent locales include South Park Elementary, different neighborhoods and the adjacent mountain range, authentic Colorado landmarks, and the merchants anywhere along the town’s main street, all of which have been modeled on the aesthetic of similar areas in Fairplay, Colorado.
Plots are generally put in action by incidents, ranging from the quite typical to the weird and exceptional, which commonly happen in the town. When these occurrences produce fear or paradoxical behavior among the adult population, typically portrayed as illogical, naive, and prone to overreaction, the boys frequently act as the voice of reason.
“South Park” has entertained home viewers for years with its highly amusing take on events and topics. Although some critics believe the show has deteriorated in the current period, most fans believe it is one of the most powerful and violent cartoons ever made. The Emmy-winning animated movie continues to produce clever instances so spot-on that fans think it’s not very comforting.
4. Aeon Flux
- Director: Animator Peter Chung
- Writer: Animator Peter Chung
- Cast: Denise Poirier, John Rafter Lee, Julia Fletcher, Steffan Chirazi, Alex Fernandez, Paul Raci, Susan Turner Cray, Japhet Asher, Andrea Carvajal, Morgan Creatives, Shawn Cuddy, Joseph Drelich, Taichi Erskine, Kelly Gabriel, Christianne Hauber, Mark Mars,

- Genre: Adventure, Avant Garde, Science Fiction.
- Platform: Hulu
- Release: 30 November 1991
About Aeon Flux:
Æon Flux is situated in a strange German Expressionist-style futuristic setting. The scenario is a weird dystopia occupied by mutant monsters, clones, and robots, set within the border-walled cities of Monica and Bregna. The main protagonist is a tall, attractive, scantily clad dominatrix sleeper agent from Monica who specializes in espionage, sabotage, and gymnastics.
Her purpose is to infiltrate and destroy the fortifications of the city of Bregna, headed by her sworn enemy and often lover, Trevor Goodchild — the technocratic tyrant of Bregna, and residents are called Breens. The term “electronic commerce” refers to the sale of electronic goods. At the same time, Monica portrays a vibrant nihilistic, anarchic society devoid of rules.
Bregna represents an Orwellian police state that is centralized and scientifically prepared. The identities of their personalities reflect this: Flux is Monica’s self-directed agent, while Goodchild is Bregna’s personality leader.
Elements of tragic/forbidden love recur throughout the story as Trevor seems to have everything. However, he genuinely wants, Æon, while Æon can achieve everything she wants, including killing Trevor.
Aeon Flux would be on my list of the most popular violent cartoon or television show ever made. If I made a list of the top movies and TV shows combined, it would end up at; if you interpret my other comments, you’ll notice that I frequently extol movies that I’ve watched in a comparable top ten Listbox and that I would have stated that numerous films are that high on the list, however that was correct upon seeing it without any hindsight; I have watched every episode of Aeon Flux at least ten times, so I have the proper hindsight here.
5. The Ren & Stimpy Show
- Director: John Kricfalusi and Bob Cramp.
- Writer: John Kricfalusi
- Cast: Stimpson J Cat, Ren Hoek, Powdered Toast Man, George liquor, Stimpy, Sammy Mantis, Mr. Noggin, Mrs. Pipe, Haggis McHaggis, Personagens.
- Seasons: 5
- Genre: Animated Sitcom, Black Comedy, Surreal Humor, and Slapstick.
- Platform: YouTube
- Release: 11 August 1991
About The Ren & Stimpy Show:
Ren Höek, a relatively brief, manic “asthma-hound” Chihuahua Dog, with Stimpson J. “Stimpy” Cat, a moronic but happy-go-lucky cat, star in the series. The team takes on different roles from episode to episode, such as outer-space adventurers, Old West horse thieves, and landscape hosts. They are usually in conflict with each other in these scenarios.
Whereas the show was occasionally set in the modern day, the team avoided “modern” gags regarding current events. The presentation extensively contains off-color and absurdist humor, as well as slapstick. The show has a host of recurring characters.
Some appear in only one episode, while others recur but also sometimes play new characters. They may be integral to the plot or make brief cameos with minimal significance.
When he created this masterpiece, Johnny K. catapulted animation to the next level. There were non sequiturs all over the place. I couldn’t help but laugh. And the circumstances seemed to be a never-ending competition of how unrealistic we could be.
The deadpan delivery added to the comedy. Kirsch once lost the rights to this, and the homeowners RUINED it. It devolved into an abuse/gross-fest. So, only look at the Spumco versions.
6. Axe Cop
- Director: Ben Jones
- Writer: Ethan Nicolle and Malachai Nicolle.
- Cast: Nick Offerman, Ken Marino, Rob Huebel, Megan Mullally, Patton Oswalt, Tyler, James Adomian, Jane Adams, Dave Allen, Dee Bradley Baker, Maria Bamford, Jonathan Banks, Raymond J Barry, Todd Barry, Stephanie Beatriz.
- Seasons: 2
- Genre: Action and Comedy.
- Platform: Amazon Instant Video and Vudu.
- Release: 21 July 2013
About Axe Cop:
The series, like the webcomic, follows the eponymous cop, his associate Flute Cop, and their coalition partners Sockarang, Gray Diamond, Liborg, and Bat Warthog Man, but instead, Wexter as they fight various “bad guys” while avoiding confrontation with the Normal Police. The Axe Cop series began with a conversation between Nick Offerman and ADHD manufacturer Nick Weidenfeld several years before the show’s debut.
Offerman discussed the Axe Cop comic with Weidenfeld and expressed interest in participating in a play based on it. Weidenfeld pitched the idea to fellow webcomic fans Phil Lord and Chris Miller, who asked Weidenfeld to oversee the project, declaring that it “had to be emotional,” in Weidenfeld’s words.
Because Lord and Miller were functioning on 21 Jump Street, they recommended Weidenfeld seek direction from Judah Miller. Weidenfeld and Miller organized a pullback with Drawn Together writers and creators Dave Jeser as well as Matt Silverstein, speech performers Ken Marino, Patton Oswalt, as well as Offerman, and comic creator Ethan Nicolle, in which the group mentioned their favorite parts of the comic and the process of translating it into a show while keeping all of the “100% pure Malachai” instants.
“Axe Cop” is indeed a superhero cop with magical powers who enjoys chopping bad guys’ heads off. He lives only to kill thousands upon thousands of evildoers by chopping off their heads. Yes, “Axe Cop” was created by a moderately adult AND a 5-year-old!
While it may appear stupid, the infant characters and dialogue make it fun. As a result, rather than the intelligent and well-thought-out hero but instead baddies, they are ridiculously dumb—the kind of things a 5-year-old boy might think of while playing.
7. Robot Chicken
- Director: Matthew Senreich and Doug Goldstein.
- Writer: Seth Green and Matthew Senreich.
- Cast: Robot Chicken, Cluckerella, The Mad scientist, Mad Scientist’s Son, The Nerd, Bitch Pudding, Unicorn, Mo-Larr, Composite Santa Claus, Little Drummer Boy, Humping Robot, Sunshine Cowboy.
- Seasons: 11
- Genre: Sketch Comedy and Dark Comedy.
- Platform: Hulu
- Release: 20 February 2005
About Robot Chicken:
Weidenfeld pitched the idea to fellow webcomic fans Phil Lord and Chris Miller, who asked Weidenfeld to oversee the project, declaring that it “had to be emotional,” in Weidenfeld’s words. Because Lord and Miller were functioning on 21 Jump Street, they recommended Weidenfeld seek direction from Judah Miller.
Weidenfeld, but instead, Miller organized a pullback with Drawn Together writers and creators Dave Jeser as well as Matt Silverstein, speech performers Ken Marino, Patton Oswalt, as well as Offerman, and comic creator Ethan Nicolle, in which the group mentioned their favorite parts of something like the comic and the process of translating it into a show while preserving all of the “100% pure Malachai” instants.
The illustrations are intermixed with static, much like channel surfing. Whereas the drawings randomly lampoon different aspects of pop culture, they commonly parody DC Comics superheroes in addition to a variety of other franchise stores. The Nerd, the Humping Robot, and indeed the show’s founders (frequently facing potential rescission after a season), along with the Mad Scientist and the Robot Chicken, are all original characters.
Robot Chicken is a television show that utilizes action figures and dolls to behave and avoid “animation sequences. It’s only 15 minutes long and airs every week, but it’s a lot of fun. It’s so unpredictable that you’ve no idea what will happen next. Nothing is holy. This is a true gem from Adult Swim.
This show is entertaining. It’s like observing a crazy person play with his childhood toys. You can’t help but stare as Seth Green’s sick imagination creates bizarre and comedic circumstances for several famous figures and their action figures. Several celebrities contribute their voices. I’m hoping this show lasts a long time.
