One Yukkuri Place

How much gore can you tolerate?

Posted under General

I'm curious about how much gore the other dwellers on OYP can tolerate. I for one cannot stand any sort of real life gore or torture involving animals, humans, or insects. However when it comes to abyuse I cant get enough of it o-o I like how resourceful and creative the abuse can be. Yukkuri suffering is also refreshing. That being said, the only yukkuri torture I dislike is Chen abuse because they resemble cats too much. I dont know how it is with other fans of abyuse but I would like to know.

I don't mind the 'aftermatch' of gore, of animals in general.
I don't like and would rather avoid the 'creation process of gore', of animals in general.

BUT BUGS, HELL NO, BUGS CAN GET BURNED ALIVE OR CRUSHED BY SPOONS AND I'LL ENJOY EVERY SINGLE SECOND OF IT.

I don't mind yukkuri torture and shit without context, as they aren't real and there's no context anyways.
However, adding context and making them feel more 'human-like' makes me feel uncomfortable about it. Justified by the yu in question being a shithead, tho. I feel it is 'JUSTICE' in that case.

FUCK BUGS, SERIOUSLY.

AW COME ON! BUGS ARE PEOPLE TOO!
Oh wait what no, they're not.
But have you seen the dung beetle? Those little things are just too adorable. HOW CAN ONE BURN A DUNG BEETLE!?

I don't enjoy the creation either.

As for the end result, I could stand seeing bloody things with meat and guts everywhere, head splitted, etc. Not saying I enjoy it; actually I'd rather avoid it.

But just make sure they're fresh. Rotten meat, shit, and the likeness of it are beyond my tolerance level.

With fire..!
But seriously some bugs are really asking for it, even a 'pretty butterfly' if it starts flying into my face.

I just fucking love all types of gore. Snuff is a bit over the line for me, but I won't refuse to see it if somebody shows me some.

As for abyuse, well, I think it's one of the few things that make this world tolerable :3

I feel the complete opposite of this. I'm ok if the body is rotted beyond recognization. Fresh gore usually means the person is still recognizable and that starts a chain of thoughts of what kind of person he/she was, what their friends/family think, and what they were feeling when they died etc. It's somewhat unbearable to think these thoughts. And their dead faces staring back at the camera is eerie and unsettling. But for yukkuris the more pain/mutiliation the better. They bring out my inner sadist and it feels so good.

Wellllll....there are ants....Those are the closest yukkuri like creatures I know, especially those little black ants. Those little fuckers just need to disappear.

nothing too realistic for me. It might sound strange coming from me, but I also don't like Jissou or fluffy gore much either.

I can take the post-death gore but realistic beheading slowly is something I can't take, I've seen it once and it gave me a trauma.

I love pics of bodiless yukes getting run over and impaled, but I don’t like it when bodied yukes get the same treatment, because the bodies make them more humanlike, and thus they tend to get much more empathy.

As for real stuff, I can’t watch surgery or even injections. I laugh when I watch people vomit on TV, and pissing and shitting don’t faze me in the least bit.

Hmm... humanlike body doesn't make the gore less tolerable for me.

I don't like Jissou gore, but that's mostly because they're even more disgusting than yukkuri in their healthy form, so the gore is really the least of the problem.

It's a bit complicated for me.

Gore, as it is, does not really phase me, no matter how brutal or perverse it is portrayed, as long as it remains objectified and distant.

Once if it becomes something the viewer can relate to, like say an innocent young girl, imprisoned in a cage, begging for help as the slowly rotating ceiling, studded with rows of razor sharp spikes, is slowly lowered down, inch by inch . makes me more than a bit uneasy. Now if that example was instead a cruel unrepentant mass murderer and not the innocent, I could justify it as justice or fitting_consequences, but that would still not make me feel any easier.

This would explain the appeal of American slasher films in the 80s for me, since the victims there are usually dumbasses that are just plain too_dumb_to_live, except maybe the One Girl who usually survives. (On a tangent: this is brilliantly subverted in the underrated Cabin In The Woods, where the "scientists" had to result to using mind-altering substances to get their sacrifices to fit their pigeonholed stereotypes whenever the cast behaved like real people. But that's a different topic entirely.)

On non-human gore, I have a higher threshold for them since they're mainly not portrayed as human to begin with (and therefore not relatable), and the fact that in most gore stories the victims are usually portrayed as shitheads that deserve it (making it justifiable, like I've mentioned earlier). Which is why I enjoy the over-the-top gore of works by omanjuuaki or bisexual, while thought-provoking stories by authors like murayu_aki touch a nerve with me, since Murayu doesn't shirk from senseless goretastic violence (remember sanae T_T ).

(On another note, this is the major hurdle I encounter when I write stories: I just can't easily bring myself to inflict death and violence to characters I have spent time developing, even if most of the details are in my head, even when the story demands their swift and brutal demise.

Throwaway characters or those that were build up to be disliked, I have no problems chucking into the nearest incinerator, however.)

(On another tangent: murayu_aki tends to use violence as the climax of their work, like the period at the end of the message they are making in their stories.)

Has there ever been a Jissou that is the yukkuri equivalent of a nicehead? I don't think it exists, and if it did, I've never seen it.

Never had troubles with gore since gore was the reason I discovered this place!
Reverse what Skribulous says and you'll have my tastes: the closer and more personal, the better.
Even better if the so called "punishment" isn't deserved.

On a slightly related side, I think that while gore and brutality pair well togheter, they aren't necessarly related: in fact, the most cruel and heinous abuse pieces here around (and not only) do not focus primarly on gore but on concepts.
Gore, if present, is simply a side effect imo.
Do not take it as an absolute because exceptions are easy to find, but the real cruelty is not even physical.

This is something I can relate to.
I find mind breaking more amusing than anything else abyuse and IRL alike.

Quoted for truth.
