Has some overlap with DeathOfAThousandCuts and NoKillLikeOverkill, since any attack that inflicts even ScratchDamage can ultimately land a KO. Compare StrongFleshWeakSteel, and see also TheLastStraw, when a proverbial straw breaks the camel's back. Compare ExactTimeToFailure for more general examples of unrealistically sudden transitions from "perfectly OK" to "totally dead".

Contrast SubsystemDamage, where losing HitPoints does adversely affect the owner's ability to fight back; the ChunkySalsaRule, which governs {{One Hit Kill}}s; and DidntNeedThoseAnyway, a form of ShowsDamage. See also AttackAttackAttack, which this trope can encourage or at least give the appearance of.

If you are looking for the trope about having one's existence entirely erased from the time-space continuum, try RetGone. Also not to be confused with AuthorExistenceFailure.

Given that this is nearly a {{Universal Trope|s}}, only aversions and notable examples go here.
