* In a similar example, there is an infamous story of how, during their UsefulNotes/WW2 liquidation of Croatia's Jews, Romani, Serbs, non-Catholics, and the like, the Ustaše guards (essentially the Croatian SS, although even the actual SS death camp guards were sickened by their brutality) at Croatia's Jasenovac concentration camp used knives called "Serb Cutters" in sadistic body count competitions to see who could cut the throats of the most newly arrived inmates. One of the guards, Petar Brzica, boasted of cutting the throats of about ''1,360'' new arrivals. Even the lower estimates put his body count at ''at least'' 800 murdered prisoners. Other participants who confessed to participating in the bet included Ante Zrinusic, who killed some 600 inmates, and Mile Friganovic, who gave a detailed and consistent report of the incident and admitted to having killed some 1,100 inmates.

Note that the whole story - or at least the "SS Guards being sickened" - is most likely just propaganda by no less homicidal Communists. So-called "Serb-cutter" knife in particular is an agricultural tool, as shown [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P3OOq5l_Hzw here]].

** An amusing BathroomStallGraffiti version in the safe room of [[AbandonedHospital No Mercy]] 4. Each post one-ups the previous, culminating in someone posting their 53,595 kill-count (which itself had several replies calling bullshit on it). Killing that many Infected yourself gets you an achievement, called "Zombie Genocidest". This number is actually a reference to the previous zombie-killing game ''VideoGame/DeadRising'', where the "Zombie Genocider" achievement required 53,594 zombie kills. Which is, in itself, based on chopper pilot Ed's conversation during the intro of the game: "Here she is. Hahaha! Willamette, Colorado. Population: 53,594. Distinguishing characteristics: Jack shit!"

Added DiffLines:

* In ''ComicBook/XWingSeries X-Wing: Rogue Squadron]]'', naturally the fighter pilot protagonists compete over kills. [[TheLeader Wedge Antilles]] has already racked up a ludicrous kill count before the story even starts, to the point that his fighter is painted with kill silhouettes representing ''12 squadrons each'' instead of the usual one silhouette for one kill because the support staff ran out of room on the side of his X-wing. The rest of the newly-reconstituted Rogue Squadron are fresh recruits to New Republic Starfighter Command and compete among each other for the unofficial title of "best ''new'' pilot" since trying to catch up with Wedge would be futile; though some of them have piloting experience outside the military (one as a [[SpacePolice space cop]], two as {{bounty hunter}}s, one as a Rebel-affiliated mercenary), only kills as Rogue Squadron members are counted for the competition. The top scores at the end of the book are 22 kills for Bror Jace and 21 for protagonist Corran Horn.

* In Literature/TheBible, a young David had to collect [[TwentyBearAsses one hundred]] [[GroinAttack foreskins]] of the Philistines in order to earn the hand of King Saul's daughter Michal in marriage. So this is OlderThanFeudalism. And then he went double for nothing and collected ''two hundred'', which made him a [[IncrediblyLamePun cut]] above the rest.\\\
{{Squick}}y as it may be, collecting the foreskins of slain enemies was surest way to tally up kills without cheating; men have two ears, ten fingers... only one foreskin. Lips and nose are one each, but they could come from women. Furthermore, Judeans were circumcised and Gentiles were not, so that meant David couldn't harvest from his own dead soldiers.

* Several of the ''VideoGame/WingCommander'' games had a scoreboard on the ship, showing the kills of all the pilots on board. The wingmen would gain kills despite not going on missions (at least, not with you), and some were much better at killing than others. Maniac would sometimes have more kills than you even if you didn't take him with you, ever, in the later games.

The manual to ''Prophecy'' mentions he had just hit ''2001'' career kills as the game begins.

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''!"
