"The Walking Dead" is never short on gore and Season 7 is going to be no exception. With the premiere -- and the reveal of Negan's (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) first victim -- it's time to take a look back. After all, the AMC series has practically made a game of topping itself in the brutal and gruesome death department.

From revenge killing to walker bites to all sorts of brain trauma -- how else do you kill a zombie -- "The Walking Dead" has never been short on coming up with a creative way to kill someone, whether it's a beloved character or a new face. So we scoured six seasons of material to find the very best and grossest deaths we could imagine to present them to you.

Take a look at the supercut above to relive some of the show's most memorable kills, including quite a few of characters you loved -- and more than a few of characters you probably hated. With no end in sight for the long-running series, as Season 8 has already been ordered, the death and destruction is really just getting started.

If this is how vicious the show has been in the first six seasons, imagine how crazy things are going to be when we get to Season 10?
