Decapitation is central to the movie. It happens by accident toward the beginning, and a character dies by suicide decapitating herself.

Also an animal is decapitated

In the mini-event 'Le 14 Julliet', Foolish is crowned as king and then beheaded. This is non-graphic as it is minecraft, and everyone got their own Foolish head to keep from the event.

Technically no, but after one assimilated character dies, a still-living head pries itself off of the body and grows legs.

There is no pain or discomfort depicted, but it is, visually speaking, a human head being separated from a human body.

There are MANY brutal decapitations of humans and walkers. Several characters end up beheaded, and the severed head turns into a zombie until someone destroys the brain. There are scenes of undead severed heads stuck on spikes as a warning. An older, much-beloved character is murdered via decapitation.

There is mention that Crump’s head is not able to be found, and someone chopped it off.

The bride decapitated her 5 husbands and this is mentioned but you never saw it happen, they just discuss it and she carries an axe.
