Another example brought up for discussion:

  • Skullgirls has an infinite-combo prevention system built into the engine. When the game's AI detects one of the fighters executing a looping combo, the amount of damage done by individual hits plummets and the other fighter can "burst" out of the loop. The longer a combo goes on, the pickier the game is about loops.

I'm not sure that "combo decay" might count as an example of this trope.

I want to write a Laconic version of this, but I'm in a Creative Block. -.- Any ideas?

Whoa, this is a trope now?

I'd used it all the time as a pothole in the forums in lieu of C-C-C-C-COMBO BREAKER but now it's a trope?
