Added DiffLines:

'''Basic Trope''': A wounded enemy is finished off with a killing blow.
* '''Straight''': Alice approaches a mortally-wounded Bob and despatches him with a close-range [[PrettyLittleHeadshots shot to the head]].
* '''Exaggerated''': Bob's been the victim of NoKillLikeOverkill, but Alice still goes over and tucks a live grenade in his pocket before [[UnflinchingWalk casually strolling away]].
* '''Downplayed''': Alice takes Bob down with shots to the body and quickly follows up with a headshot just to be sure.
* '''Justified''':
** Alice knows Bob is MadeOfIron and isn't going to [[NoOneCouldSurviveThat assume he's dead]] until she personally makes certain of it.
** Alice has ordered her {{mooks}} to LeaveNoSurvivors, so they go over the battlefield making sure.
* '''Inverted''': Alice sees Bob is quickly slipping away and orders TheMedic to keep him alive. Either they're FriendlyEnemies, or she just wants him to suffer longer...
* '''Subverted''': ThwartedCoupDeGrace; Bob shoots Alice before she can kill him.
* '''Double Subverted''': TakingYouWithMe; Alice just has time to return the favour before falling over and [[DiedInYourArmsTonight dying in Bob's arms]].
* '''Deconstructed''': ???
* '''Reconstructed''': ???
* '''Parodied''': Alice and Bob are in a {{food fight}}. Bob goes down in a hail of bun-fire, and Alice walks over to stand over his groaning body, gives a BondOneLiner (something about "just desserts", probably) and slaps a custard pie in his face.
* '''Zig Zagged''': There's an OverlyLongGag of successive {{Thwarted Coup de Grace}}s, with a ClickHello and a PreMortemOneLiner from each one.
* '''Averted''': No-one is killed at the mercy of an enemy. Either they're killed instantly, they escape, or they're captured and [[AnOfficerAndAGentleman treated well.]]
* '''Enforced''':
** Alice and Bob need to have a final conversation, but Bob would never talk if he was still able to fight.
** DeathIsDramatic, Bob can't just be ''shot dead'' in the middle of a battle.
* '''Lampshaded''': ???
* '''Invoked''': Alice has ordered that Bob be taken down non-lethally so she can gloat before killing him.
* '''Exploited''': Bob knows Alice will want to finish him off personally, so [[InvokedTrope plans]] a ThwartedCoupDeGrace.
* '''Defied''': Alice checks on Bob, and orders him to be left to die slowly and painfully.
* '''Discussed''': ???
* '''Conversed''': ???
* '''Played For Laughs''': "[[TheMedic Medic! Medic!]] Bob's dead! What do we do!?" "OK, calm down. First thing we need to do is make sure he ''is'' dead..." *BANG* "OK, now what?"
* '''Played For Drama''': ???
