Alice's method to deal the coup de grāce on Bob? Excessive amounts of tickling, which causes him to explode after his HP reaches zero. (Because the developers didn't bother to create a different death animation!)
Zig Zagged: ???
Averted: The game is programmed to only allow more powerful attacks to finish opponents.
Lampshaded: "You don't get more experience points by being boring, Alice! Spice it up a bit!"
Invoked: Alice holds back throughout the whole fight to show Bob how inferior he is.
Defied: Alice decides that it'll be much more satisfying to use a proper Finishing Move.
