Trimming. No meaning has been changed.
Both fiction and real life are no strangers to massive battles between enormous armies consisting of thousands of soldiers. Needless to say, such a battle will invariably result in obscene amounts of bloodshed, carnage, death, slaying, maiming, slaughtering, [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking stubbing of toes]], and generally any other word for mass killing you can think of. Often times there will be one or more Badasses involved in the battle and said Badasses will be responsible for most of the killing of the other side's {{Mooks}}. Sometimes you'll have two or more {{Badass}}es on one side of the fight. They may be best friends or bitter rivals, or any other kind of relationship. One of them may propose a contest to see who's the bigger {{Badass}}. And what kind of contest could possibly determine such a thing? See which one of them can kill the most of the other side's {{Mooks}}. Right before a huge battle, or during one, they agree that whoever kills more {{Mooks}} is officially the better fighter, and has [[MyKungFuIsStrongerThanYours superior combat skills]]. The level of hostility in the challenge can vary from a friendly jest between comrades to the participants trying to kill ''each other as well'' during the ensuing ruckus. Can also be done when the two are simply infiltrating an enemy base by themselves or fending off a horde of enemies that ambushed them. It is a frequent subject of mini games and contests between players in certain video and tabletop games.

** In the movies, the competition between Gimli and Legolas started at Helm's Deep was kept longer, onto the Battle of Minas Tirith. This lead to a particularly humorous exchange between the two. After Legolas single-handedly killed a rampaging 60-feet-tall Oliphant, including its riders, an irate Gimli declares, "That still only counts as ''one''!" ** ''The Two Towers'' began the competition, and featured several exchanges on the theme:

** James Gandofini did research for his role in ''InTheLoop'' by going to the Pentagon and talking to some of the generals there; he encountered one who ''couldn't remember'' if he'd killed anyone. The writers turned it into a comedic moment between Gandolfini's character and Malcolm Tucker.
