Any time people gather with the goal of hitting each other until one of them falls over, the ultimate trump card would be a weapon, spell, technique, trick or what-have-you that makes people fall over ''immediately'', without all that annoying [[TheStrategist strategizing]] and [[TheMedic healing]] and stuff. The One-Hit Kill is that trump card.

** Japanese cruisers in general were rather vulnerable to this. This was because they carried highly volatile "Long-Lance" torpedoes, which were powered with pure oxygen. Flammable oxygen. Even glancing hits from low-caliber shells could cause them to cook-off and destroy or cripple the ship.

* Many combat athletes are known for their ability to end a fight with a single strike. Perhaps the best contemporary example is the [[UsefulNotes/UltimateFightingChampionship UFC's]] Anthony "Rumble" Johnson, who, as of March 2017, shares the record for most all-time knockouts (including [=TKOs=]) in UFC history (11) with Anderson Silva, and boasts an incredible five KO/TKO victories in 51 seconds or less, with two of them coming in ''13 seconds'' each. In the words of UFC commentator Joe Rogan, "Rumble Johnson connects on people, and they just ''shut off.''"

** This both is and is not a great example of the trope. In the trailer, which is what got people hyped for what many considered a too-late sequel, the shot is clearly framed and steady, with a bit of distance behind his opponent so you can see him walk up and just knock him out with an elbow to the face, a very nice "oh damn" moment. The ''actual movie'' however, ruins the moment with shaky camera work, being literally right behind Bourne as he walks up and away from his opponent so little detail is seen other than the back of his head, and moves quickly at the actual strike, blurring the whole "fight".



* During the Battle Off Samar, the USS ''Johnston'' managed to land a crippling hit onto the Japanese Heavy Cruiser ''Kumano'' completely taking it out of the battle with just one torpedo hit (to be specific, the hit ''blew the ship's entire front end off'').

** Direct eye contact with a basilisk will instantly kill the victim. Indirect eye contact, such as through a lens or a reflection, merely paralyzes.
