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 Golden Eye)

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

  • Averted in the games Earthbound and Mother 3, characters don't fall down from lethal damage immediately. It takes time for their health to tick down to zero, meaning that it is possible to save a lethally-wounded character by healing them or winning the encounter before their health hits zero. To make it match the trope even further, a few of the enemies do in fact use guns.
    • Played straight in the original Mother.

How come there's no Headscratchers page for this?

Because nobody has made one yet, I presume. Feel free to start it.

Oh? How do I start it? I clicked "Edit page", and didn't even see the markup for any of the tabs that are there.

Tabs aren't created through a special markup; they're added automatically when someone makes the page they will link to. Go here and start editing; when you're done, the tab should show up and the page will exist.

OK, can we settle the Loid/Lloyd debate once and for all?
