The concept: Two people are fighting. Either with swords or guns, doesn't matter. One person loses their weapon in the fight and it goes skittering across the floor (usually toward the foreground). That person dives for it or crawls to get it, dramatically... but just as their hand [[WithinArmsReach reaches out to grab the handle/hilt]] – you see their opponent's foot come down upon the weapon (or on their reaching hand), ending the battle. If the stomper is particularly powerful, expect them to outright [[WreckedWeapon crush the weapon under their heel]].
