If we don't already have this, it might be worth keeping with a rewrite. It definitely has enough examples.

I agree with that. It was just rather sloppily written, and could have used a bit of review before it was posted. I don't really feel up to rewriting it myself, as I'm not much of a zombie afficionado.

If we're going to keep this, the title definitely should be shorter.

Lobo? (after World War Z) But I don't think it's necessary. It's really a sub-trope of Boom, Headshot!, and kind of not necessary.

Not really. Boom, Headshot! is about headshots as the preferred way of killing an enemy because of game mechanics. This is about when a headshot is the only thing that works at all.

There don't seem to be any non-zombie examples though. This is just a property of zombies and not worth it's own trope.

It's the Zombie version of the "to kill a robot, head-shot it" part of Headshots Kill Robots. Looks like we do need either a merged trope or a supertrope for A Headshot Will Kill Anything.

Headshots Kill Anything I think is good, as it can be the supertrope for robots, zombies, monsters, all manner of things.

I can see that, if the article has sub-divisions, at least in the examples.

There's also a song by the Artist "Zombie Girl" called Go Zombie. The lyrics are: Remove the head/ Destroy the brain over and over before the chorus, "Go Zombie/ Go dead meat/ move your hands and feet/ to this beat"

The next one might be easier to see.

How well does it match the trope?
