    Rather Mercy Kill.

    It's just PSOC unless you define it further. But yes, in a tropeable form it's likely to match Mercy Kill pretty perfectly. Furthermore, the place to ask these questions is Lost And Found, not here.

    It's also the aversion to Automaton Horse.

    In an episode of MASH the Jeep that Col. Potter is in gets run over by a tank. (Potter jumps out of the jeep in time to not get crushed.) Potter, a horseman, goes to the jeep and shoots it a la killing a horse with a broken leg.
