(Note: I’m not sure whether this exists already, but research is coming out negative, so I'll continue with this.)

Welcome to The Character Kill Chain! The rules are fairly simple: You take the character that the above user introduced, then introduce a different character, and have your character kill off that character.

Here’s an demonstration of the game:

''Alice walks into a forest.

Bob takes a branch and implales Alice with it.

Charlie beheads Bob with an axe.''

And so on. It’s that simple! Before you get started, please read the following rules:

    Rules 
  • Make sure to read and follow all forum and FG rules. No thread is an exception to this rule, including this one.
  • Please state the source of your character. If you can't pothole the source, state it in spoilered text. This is especially recommended if you're using a character from a fanfic, so people don’t confuse it for a original character or a self insert.
  • Any specific character may be used once, and only once. Until I provide a list of taken characters, please read through all other posts.
  • No more than one character may be alive at the end of a post.
  • Details are encouraged, but do not over-detail. This one is more subjective, but as a rule of thumb, try to stick to a 100 word limit. No one wants to read a wall of text.
  • You are allowed to alter the battlefield, but only as part of the attack.
    • However, I may introduce a event at any time. These events will persist until I state that the event has finished, or is overwritten by a new event.
      • Unless the event would (or states that it will) remove items from some or all prior events, characters may use them. This also applies to bodies and items from them.
    • These events will never kill a character on its own. However, a character can and should use the event to kill the current one.
  • Keep location, the current character, and events in mind as you write your post.
  • Do not write an open-ended post. This thread is not intended to be like the RP fight threads. Please don't attempt to turn this into one.
  • Real people are allowed, but discouraged.
  • Do NOT write an attack deemed to be nonsensical. This is another subjective rule, and I won't point to a Death Battle video and state that you are wrong because of it, but make sure the attack makes sense. Avoid using attacks that:
    • Are nonlethal, or incapacitate, but don't kill within a short period of time,
    • Require an ability or item that the character can't use for any reason, or
    • Wouldn't affect the recipient.
    • Metagaming and attacks that kill the attacker are perfectly fine, as long as they don't break any rules.
      • Should the latter happen, leaving no one alive in the process, simply have your character walk into the scene.
  • Please ignore all posts that break any of the above rules, as well as ninja'd posts.
    • If a post breaks a rule, be sure to state so in spoilered text. I won't be around 24/7 to monitor posts, and I won't know half of the characters.
  • By sending a post, you state that you have read and agreed to the rules, and you are responsible if you break a rule.
  • Rules may be added, changed, or removed at any time without notice.
With all of that out of the way, let’s begin!

Hornet impales both of them with a needle, screaming "GIT GUD!" in the process.

Deku digs up some mines with a giant robot part, then rides it as he jumps on the pile, using the explosion to send him crashing into Doof.
