Hi folks I need a bit of help with an example(s) from a Special Efforts thread. See InstantDeathBullet Sandbox for more details Links to threads are in the description.

Any help, suggestions, or other info can be posted to The Special Efforts thread

The examples shown here could perhaps be salvaged with more context or used in other tropes.

What game mechanics, if any, make instant death possible with these games? Please be specific. For example weapons, hit locations, critical damage, direct one shot one kill weapons (like the Golden Gun in GoldenEye)

Does an Instant Death Bullet Occur in cut scenes, gameplay, or anywhere else in the game?

  • Liberal Crime Squad: Horribly averted in this freeware RPG: mortally wounded characters stay in the party, dying slowly in agony and decreasingly coherent terror.

Because it mocks both sides and is generally not an Author Tract, perhaps? But both are pretty obscure to start with.

This game is clearly not to be taken seriously and if anything is a deterrent to any kind of violent action, see exchanges like:

"Alexander Monroe beats the Automaton,

shouting 'Rush Limbaugh! Tax cuts! Family values!" in it's face.

CHUCK VASILEVSKY IS DEAD UNDER ALEXANDER MONROE'S INTERROGATION.

Alexander Monroe feels sick to the stomach afterward and curls up in ball, crying softly."

It's over-the-top, but it's still blatantly liberal, looks pretty Author Tract-ish and how is that a deterrent to violent action?

Doesn't look Author Tract-ish to me. How is it blatantly Liberal? Please show me an example where it is bias towards Liberals in a non-joking way. It makes both Liberals and Conservatives look ridiculous. I think you're just trying to find something to complain about.
