*** Instant kills also exist in the form of fatal strikes in ''VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia'', though they only do this to normal enemies, and can only be triggered after depleting one of their fatal strike gauges through use of arts. In the PS3 version, Clint can use this on ''you'' if he or his allies land enough hits. Notable in that it'll still kill you even if you have the otherwise invincible level four Overlimit active.

* ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}'' has this for some of the heroes' [[LimitBreak Ultimates]]:
** [=McCree=]'s "Deadeye" is a guarenteed headshot for every hero in his line of sight.
** Reinhardt's "[[FoeTossingCharge Charge]]" is all but guaranteed to kill any non-tank hero, dealing 350 HP damage while non-tanks only have 250 HP at most.
** D.Va's "[[SelfDestructMechanism Self-Destruct]]" will blow any hero unlucky enough to be in the blast radius to hell and back.

** Using the Bible against [[DiscOneFinalBoss Mom]] and [[spoiler:Mom's Heart/It Lives]] will kill them instantly, which is accurate to the game's first ending. Using the Bible against [[spoiler:Satan]] will kill ''[[PressXToDie you]]'' instantly. Using the Bible anywhere else simply gives you wings for the duration of the room.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/NuclearThrone'', touching a Laser Crystal will deal 20 damage, exactly enough to kill the healthiest mutant and more than enough to kill anybody else. The Hyper Crystal takes this even further; touching that will deal a whopping ''[[NoKillLikeOverkill 200]]'' damage!

* In ''[=NiGHTS=]: Journey of Dreams'', [=NiGHTS=]'s Paraloop will defeat Chamelan in one hit. However, he is a HollywoodChameleon and a GetBackHereBoss at the same time, ''and'' he has an infinite supply of [[DeathDealer hostile playing-card robots and playing-card bombs]] he uses strictly to increase his distance, meaning finding him can be very troublesome if the player is unaware of the little hints that give away his location.

* In the last level of ''Tiny Toon Adventures: Buster's Hidden Treasure'', just before the final battle with Montana Max and his robot, you have to outrun [[AndCallHimGeorge Elmyra Duff]] on your way to the boss room. If she manages to catch you, Buster will hold up a sign that says, '''TRY AGAIN''', and you instantly lose a life. There's also the [[SpikesOfDoom Spikes of Doom]], especially in the [[SlippySlideyIceWorld Ice Mountain levels.]]

* In ''[=Mister Mosquito=]'' on the PS2, while the player sucking blood, the anxiety meter shown on the lower left corner of the screen can range from green to red, when the meter reaches red the animation of the family member quickly stops and about a second later it switches to a slapping animation and if the player is still on the family member's skin while they are slapping, that slap will be an instant kill regardless of how much health the player has.

* ''VideoGame/PrinceOfPersia: The Sands of Time'' has an interesting variation. The ultimate sword kills any enemy in one hit, but you usually charge your time powers by stabbing stunned enemies with your secondary weapon, and there's no stunning when they turn to dust as soon as you touch them. But of course, by the time you get the ultimate sword, [[spoiler: you've lost the Dagger of Time.]] So no harm, no foul.

** Thaumaturgy has Blood Boil, which as suggested by the name makes the target's blood instantly heated to boiling, causing him to [[LudicrousGibs literally explode]].

** Animalism has Spectral Wolf (which causes a wraith-like wolf to appear behind the target and maul it), Bloodsuckers' Communion (which summons ghostly bats to attack the target and drain it from its blood before delivering it to their master) and Pestilence (which summons insect swarms to devour the target's flesh). The last two are ''technically'' not designed to be one-hit kills (they can be used against bosses to do regular damages), but considering how low most of the enemies' health is in the game, they might as well be.
** Discipline aside, feeding can also be used as a One-Hit-Kill against a lone opponent if you manage to grab him and drain him of his blood without getting interrupted by another enemy, since the target has no way to defend itself once you are sucking its blood.

** Dominate has Suicide allowing to inflict an PsychicAssistedSuicide to an enemy, and Mass Suicide, allowing to inflict this to several people. Possession also cause an enemy to fall under MindControl, then die from cardiac arrest.
** Dementation has Vision of Death, which causes the victim to die instantly, and Berserk, which causes the victim to turn into a psycho attacking everything in sight and ''then'' drop dead. Both are slightly less effective against supernatural beings, however.

*** The M-920 Cain heavy weapon, informally known as a [[EverythingMakesAMushroom "nuke launcher"]] despite the flavor text stating that [[RealityIsUnrealistic it's just a really strong explosive.]] On Insanity it will still kill most enemies in one hit, in a very large blast radius, and it will probably kill you for the same reason. And it still won't do very much damage to the final boss, who (if you're really unfortunate) will be moving around too much for you to easily hit it anyway, especially considering that the final-boss area doesn't really have a whole lot of walls for you to just aim the Cain at and hope for splash damage. The Cain returns in ''3'', where Shepard kills an AntiAir variant of the Reaper destroyer with it during the battle in London.
