So if you have your floating space fortress fall on someone...did you just drop the base?

That pun was so bad that it caused me physical pain.

I hate you so much I think I might love you.

Sorry, wrong page.

Video game, Starhawk for the PS 3.

A big part of the combat is calling self-assembling buildings down from orbiting spaceships. When these hit the ground, they kill anyone within range of impact before assembling into turrets, supply depots, or whatever you called down.

This is a very common way to kill people, and sometimes yourself on accident.

Where does Wild Mass Guessing regarding this trope go?

In My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, Luna/Nightmare Moon rules the night. We see shooting stars in "Owls Well That Ends Well" followed by Twilight Sparkle writing an accurate-to-real-life description of the composition of comets. Taken together, this implies that if she is trying to KILL someone(or a lot of people), rather than subjugate that Luna (and more-so Nightmare Moon) would be capable of dropping asteroids of mission-appropriate sizes on targets.

Would LIKE to put this on this page since I have some evidence, but since it isn't conclusive, I am asking the opinion of more experienced tropers.

I'd suggest putting it on the Wild Mass Guessing page.

This reminds me of the idea I had of Celestia being able to use the Sun as a Kill Sat.

There was no Colony Drop in G Gundam.

Merely stating the obvious.

Since Gunbuster used THE Jupiter as the degeneracy bomb.(not dropping, so it does not count in this page) Diebuster had the improvised jupiter(converted by an Excelion class battleship) drop onto a space monster,(technically a black hole class object with its degeneracy generator, or should I call it a degenerator?) then attempted to drop THE Earth onto the Earth sized space monster. BTW, all the space monsters have singularities in them, so each one ramping into any ship means dropping black holes...

So what do you call it when someone smashes *a* moon (but not THE moon) into another planetary object (and the moon isn't the object's -own- moon)? Specifically, I'm thinking of the portion of Homestuck in which Jack cuts the moon of Prospit loose from the chain holding it to the main planet, sending it crashing into the battlefield of Skaia.

I had the same problem with my Empire From The Ashes example, so I added an additional "Moons" folder.
