I don't see anyone typing "instant kill" into the search bar when they're looking for a list of OHKO moves. If anything, it could redirect to instant KO, but I think that's also unnecessary. SuperFalconBros (talk) 19:08, 29 September 2018 (EDT)

Do you think someone new to smash/not familiar with the existing terminology, namely OHKO, might search for this? – Emmett 19:10, 29 September 2018 (EDT)
One-hit kill yes, instant kill (and instant death) no. However I can see Alex's argument that it should redirect to instant KO instead. SuperFalconBros (talk) 19:13, 29 September 2018 (EDT)

"Kill" and "KO" are essentially synonymous. It's completely reasonable that someone would search instant kill instead of instant KO. Hell, we even have an existing redirect that serves a similar purpose. That being said though, it absolutely should not point to one hit KO.

I can see this argument. Do you think the same applies to "instant death?" SuperFalconBros (talk) 19:13, 29 September 2018 (EDT)
Er....that one's a tricky one. I'd say instant kill would be more commonly searched than instant death, so I don't really see that much use in having that one, but I suppose you could make the argument for that as well. Alex the Jigglypuff trainer 19:17, 29 September 2018 (EDT)

I'm thinking both should redirect to Instant KO, they both seem like they could be searched. Serpent SKSig.png King 19:22, 29 September 2018 (EDT)
