Okay, well, AFAIK this name applies to the former. I suppose the latter can go through YKTTW, no idea on a good name though.
How about, I dunno, Death of a Thousand Cuts? We don't need a new trope, the appropriate one is already there.

Yeah. Derp, right? tongue
Rhymes with "Protracted."
Death by Yuyuko Moeness
Okay, I'm quoting this from the trope page:

If you're playing an FPS, bonus points if you rough up their corpses after they get killed. It can be a way to show off crushingly superior fighting technique by using a Joke Character in a fighting game

This trope should be about killing your enemy in a humiliating way, like you're laughing at the opponent. So the current splitting solution is poinless.

And it overlaps with Death By A Thousand Cuts by the sense that you use that to do a Cherry Tapping. If it's split then every way of Cherry Tapping will be needed to be split. Which is not a good idea.

No, the entire point of Cherry Tapping is that the fatal attack is weak, not necessarily humiliating. Now the weakness of the attack may itself be humiliating, but that's a byproduct.
