ITT: Best Kill that you've ever had in a D and D/ Pathfinder game. OR any other table-top based RPG.
Flying out of a planar tear to strike down an avatar of Tiamat with my holy lance.
Telefragging a dire weasel by breaking a feather anchor token in it's mouth.
Choking out a white dragon with a magical choking necklace of death.
Critting with a shocking grasp spellstrike as a magus to cut an undead giant clean in half with lightning.
Running upstairs and flying really high, turning body into iron and dropping straight through the floor onto a demilich.
My best kill in an RPG was in an AdEva game I played ages ago. It's not a great system and the game wasn't super consistent, but it was a golden moment.

After a long, hard slog we were up against the arc endboss, who was pulling all kinds of awful shit to limit our ability to right it. My PC was an AT Technician, basically an Evangelion Wizard, and was put through an emotional mindfuck trying to break him through trauma. But the love he had for his girlfriend/fiance (can't remember if he'd proposed by this point) pulled him through, his AT field spiked, and he called down a pillar of fire from the fucking son, glassing the boss and a lot of the surrounding area.
For me, missing the Mindflayer that had another party member fully held and tentacled and the action after mine was going to eat their brain, to instead hit and crit the party member with (I believe) a scorching ray. Complete accident but I played it off as a mercy kill and the vaporized player agreed.

For another player, probably the reaping mauler literally breaking her nemesis in half during sex.
Toss up between an android magus tri-critting a kaiju into oblivion, murdering a rancor with a pair of pants, and a guardsman killing an ork nob by sniping a det-charge out of his hand.
The time my cleric turned the halfling bard into a greasy smear.

So basically, stuff's been happening, the bard has been an annoying little shitstain both at the table and in character. Finally, in a complex full of traps (which the DM admitted to putting together because he saw this coming and thought it'd be a good arena) he goes too far, shows a bit too much cowardice while being a little shitbag and I'm finally like "Fuck this, let's go." I give him fair warning, because it wasn't in character to just bean him from behind.

What's the little coward do? HE RUNS LIKE A BITCH.

The wizard, very much my bro, just looks at the fighter, who's staring at the spectacle, shaking his head, and responds, "Hey, I don't have a dog in this fight."

Candyass Little Bitch thought he could run. He had to tank traps to do it. So did I, but I had effective healing and he didn't, as well as more HP. I didn't bother though, because all he had was a dagger and a -1 damage modifier for STR.

Finally, I corner the little fucker. We're both at maybe 15 hp because of traps. I so totally don't care. He hits with his dagger twice on absurdly lucky rolls and gets like 3 total damage, while I whiff with two horrible rolls. I don't care. Next round sees muh cleric going critical and leaving his brain matter scattered about.

The fighter hands some gold to the wizard. "I thought he'd do better in the traps." The wizard replies, "not enough to make up that kind of difference.

Afterwards the DM was all, "Fuck this, we're playing something that makes no sense whatsoever now that you've got that out of your blood. Time for some Changeling: the Dreaming!"
>girlfriend and I playing 40k for the first time

>jungle guy almost to the edge, other 2 people say to abandon me
>girlfriend takes aim with Las cannon again
>roll 6
>jungle guy goes off map with larva
>girlfriend drags my character off the map while we're screaming like sand people

And that was the day Sandy and Randy were born
Another good one is when my warrior, a halfling, and a wizard destroyed the last crystal that stopped Cthulu and an army of Mindflayers from going through an inter dimensional portal and destroying the world, one turn before they made it through.
Literally tearing the heart out of my character's now-revealed-to-be-a-succubus-ex-girlfriend whilst possessing the body of another succubus.

Became much less awesome when it turned out that DIDN'T ACTUALLY KILL HER.

Made weirder when that character (still one of my favorites) retired by defecting to the demon's side.
That's beautiful.

>Playing Dragonquest (well, actually DMing, this was one of my players, but whatever)
>Illusionist character.
>Illusions in Dragonquest work by sense, they have to be patently believable to even have a chance of working; and if you want to cause damage with them, you need to have a tactile element.
>However, the more senses you add, the exponentially harder the spell becomes to cast, if you wanted to say, make an illusionary warrior, you'd probably need visual, audial, and olfactory, as well as tactile to actually do any damage, which would require an absurd amount of XP to be able to cast with any sort of hope of success. And even then, they'd get a save
>So it's mostly used to trick, not to hurt.
>Party is hired to kill this one baron. He's not all that tough, but he has a retinue of guards that are pretty dangerous, so it's mostly intended to be a slip past them and knife the bastard sort of mission.
>Group gets themselves invited to a party he was hosting at his manor, and using it as a chance to scope out his defenses.
>Illusionist walks right up to him, slaps him on the back, says how great a time he's having, this is the best ever, and oh I'm so sorry, but I poisoned your drink.
>Makes his notbluff check,
>Makes his spell check, which is involving only a tactile illusion of the guys guts seizing up.
>Saving throw against perception fails.
>Guy drops dead from a placebo.
It was a "portal to the abyss has opened and all of hell is being unleashed into the world" scenario

First demon group through the portal tore our lvl 12 or 13 party to pieces and it was looking like a TPK. Last man standing (My 16 year old paladin riding a pegasus) dove into the portal like a kamikazi jap, attempting to shatter our staff of power while at the barrier of the rift. Enemy marilith grabbed a hold of the SoP and tried to arm wrestle it from me. I hulked out, shattered the staff, and died instantly. The DMs immediately left (college + finals week), but I can only assume the demons where stopped and the kingdom saved.

Drowning the BBEG's right hand man in a puddle as a gnome
But where did all that Blue Mana come from?
Mage: The Awakening. Life Mage. Stealth dropped a rat onto a dude from a museum rooftop, which I turned into a panda shortly after it left my hand.
Was fighting some huge fucking Devil with 4 arms. We managed to weaken it quite a bit, and when It was down to low health, the party Gnome did the most logical thing.
He asked my character (seven and a half foot tall Golem) to throw him at it.
I was sceptical, but he (and the others in the party) begged me to do it. We had nothing to lose (accept our Gnome, I guess) so I rolled to throw, and passed, since I had a strength of like 24. Little bastard smashed his entire sack of potions into the Devils mouth. Which included, Fire Bomb, Holy Water, Lightening Bombs, and Ice Bombs.
Needless to say, the Devil died.
After that we got the hell out of there.

Dunno what that is (as I said, it was our first time playing and haven't played since). The guy running the game probably simplified a lot of the rules because there were 5 of us and 4 had never played before.
But did the gnome make it out alive?
Yes. Yes he did.
Explain everything.
It was in reference to all the "UUUU UUU"s, because a lot of Magic the Gathering players abbreviate Blue Mana as U.
It was a dumb joke but I don't feel bad.
And also your story was pretty cool, I liked it.
Headbutted Tiamat with a special relic I Wished for.

I once had a character kill the Tarrasque by hitting it with a fullblade at terminal velocity from the lower atmosphere. Perhaps letting Rule of Cool be his guide, we calculated the height from which my character was dropping and applied fall damage as a bonus to the attack damage... without the 20d6 upper limit on fall damage. The damage not only one-shotted it, but my character left a small crater so deep that it left a crater the size of a small lake. There was actually an underground water system that opened up and it became a lake shortly after. A village was formed around it. My character survived. We were pretty much playing Exalted at this point.

Alright OP Story time

The best kill I ever got was in a game of 2nd Ed Exalted using a steak knife to kill a corrupted mayor of a town who eats live people and worships an abyssal exalted.
This was a game set in the 100 kingdoms and the party (Our circle of solar exalts) had been investigating weird shit going on in this town and small kingdom that we were based in.
Now our party consisted of myself the fat ass guild representative Eclipse cast who had memory altering powers and he could say just about anything and EVERYONE would believe him. His goal was to climb the guilds ranks and make the guild stop selling drugs and slaves and ruining peoples lives.

The we had our dawn cast Female warrior of justice and death with her golden 2H sword who would smite any evil or injustice she found this eventually lead her on a holy war with almost everyone but that’s another story.

We had the Twilight cast sorcerer who was only into books and finding out how to create weapons that could turn people into statues made of any metal.

And finally we had the Night cast assassin who would only use boomerang’s to kill his enemy’s and wished to create a thieves guild that feed the poor and stole from the guild but he also we able to eat spirits and see the gods of the land.
Shall I continue?

not strong enough to cut the armor , i used a mordhau attack with my army longsword against his head , got a crit , send him to the ground and cracked the autorepair orb

i got another attack left , which turned out as a crit and dusted the skull
Mine was in L5R. Was playing in a fairly large play by post game.

Was playing a strong stat based pre-made duelist given to me by the GMs. I had no Advantages, Techniques (i.e. School/Class abilities), or Kata (style bonuses basically).

My opponent was a twinked out player made character designed to win duels. She had similar stats to mine, had used Advantages to both get a school that completed with often beat the Schools that specialized in dueling and also bypass a skill cap put into place to keep the game fair, as well as having one of the best dueling kata. She pretty much had everything you could wish for as a duelist.

The duel went like this:
I spent Void on every roll. She won the Assessment roll, but did not beat me enough to get the +1k1 bonus on the Focus roll. We got a Karmic Strike (our opposed rolls were within 5 of each other) on our Focus roll so we ended up attacking at the same time. We both hit with our attacks but neither killed so we went into skirmish (normal combat) mode.

I won Initiative and went all out and managed to hit twice for the kill.
Not really a kill so much as a fight.

PF game, starting at 4th level. I decided to play a paladin and came upon a woman being attacked by four guys with silvered daggers in an alley. Party hadn't met up yet so I charged them with my sword and shield alone.....and whiffed. Lady runs off while the guys surround me and the DM calls it there for the night since we didn't have time to do the fight then.

After the game he PMs me and tells me to have a backup character ready. He doesn't tell me exactly why, but pretty obviously hints that this is a fight meant for at least 3 players or at least me and some guards and I figured out pretty quick that each of these guys were level 4 rogues. So yeah.....I was pretty fucked. Starting looking up all the combat maneuvers and tricks I can do to somehow survive.

Next session we start the fight and I luck the fuck out and get first turn. I immediately back into a corner and make it impossible to flank me for backstab. Proceed to Fight Defensively and rope-a-dope four rogues as the GM is frantically looking up combat maneuvers to force a sneak attack on me. He manages about two but I just Lay On Hands the damage away. Rogues finally run off with one dead and two badly wounded.

I'm sure there's some shit either me or the GM could have done to easily destroy the other, but we were both pretty new to PF. I don't really blame him for the fight, either, since I kinda ran into it like a dumbass with no plan. He even had another player come across me but that dude was a terrible player and just ran away.......like he did from every fight he was in before dropping from the game after a few weeks. It was a ton of fun to go into a fight that shouldn't have lasted a round and just Muhammed Ali'ing some pissant murderers for the glory of GOD AND JUSTICE!
Turning a human heart into an explosive device and exploding 7/20 savages at once because, as my DM put it "that was fucking metal."
>accept our Gnome

was that your battlecry when throwing him?
This story begins with us having horrible nightmares and more and more people have been going missing out of graves in the town as in close to 100 at a time and the undead rampaging though the neighbouring kingdoms and this being our home town we kind of need to remain un-fucked by undead.

Each of us decided to start chasing leads on what could be causing such evil to spread. I decided to ask the factor of the town of any strange ingredients had been flowing into town or any stimulants that could cause the dead to rise. Now he was a fairly normal fat merchant NPC but his offsider was deathly thin with matted black hair and always seemed to have everything ready just before he needed it so this rang alarm bells but W/E next up we had a meeting with mayor and I asked our Night cast to come with and have him do some snooping while I talked about BS and tried to get any info I could.
As we got to his door on the 4th story of his mansion it was closed and we knocked on it to enter when the door swung open we saw him chin deep in a god damn slaves belly eating him alive at which point our night cast NOPED the fuck out the window dragging me along for an impromptu pavement cuddle at speed.

Needless to say he needed to die and we had worked out that the Factors aid was raising the dead as a few people had described “Hands made of bone digging up graves and giving them life while the Factors aid watched with glee.” Not to mention every single undead attack started when he was in that kingdom.
So the party managed to confront him and told him to SOD off (It was a mistake not killing him then) and we wouldn’t kill him so we shook hands on the deal in return for a favour from me. He pinged his Abyssal cast charm and made the deal written in notice of the gods so if I don’t do the favour I am as good as dead.
As soon as it pinged he told me he can be gone soon and that my favour is to murder the guild factor BEFORE he leaves town. Sure it will take him a few days to get his shit in order so I got time.

He then says Oh I should be done and gone in the hour have fun. OH FUCK so sprinting my fat little ass across town I end up at the factors home I charm my way past the guards and begin to search for the factor and a weapon.

All I was able to find was a steak knife which to avoid being detected by any other guards I quickly strapped to my thigh upon finding said factor in his office I BRUTALLY murder him with 74 stab wounds to the chest yelling I’m sorry but it’s for my own good.

After the crime has been done and he was dead I poked my head out the door and called for a maid. When she rocked up I used memory fuck powers to tell her she did the crime and that she is to take the knife and go into the office and keep stabbing while crying “WHY DIDN’T YOU BUY ME THAT ELL SKIN PURSE?!?”
As this happens I walk out of the building altering the memories of everyone I meet that my clothes are not bloody and that it’s just tomato sauce.

There is more to the story like how I managed to fool the entire town and their god that I was innocent despite the party KNOWING FULLY what I did and I will take over his role starting with a party with free drugs and hookers for all that lasted a month and killed 30% of the town’s people in the process.
I sent a bunch of wyvern riders flying out of a tower with a well placed thunderwave
Explosive runes on the inside of my robes.

We had just stolen an important magical crystal or something and were running from the BBEG's right hand demon. He catches up to us, I hold him off and tell everyone else to run. Demondude kills me after a few rounds of hard fighting and searches my body for the crystal.
I was playing a half giant warblade, hunting a demonic direwolf. Along the way I came across a round boulder that my character could only pick up with both hands, and carried it with me. When the wolf made a retreat, I picked it up from the ground at my feet (I dropped it when it pounced on me) and managed to kill it with a natural 20 when I threw it, the GM said I snapped its spine. My character then spent the night naked in the woods, praying to his savage gods and consuming the wolf's heart. It was a good session.
This is also kind of a WTF GM story, but it takes the top slot in my memory just for sheer absurdity.

Noble had me imprisoned, and was preparing to administer fate much worse than death.
Noble's liege, a young prince, was like, "Dude, this shit is fucked up, I'ma leave right now because my poppa needs to know, and I'm worried you'll try to kill me 'cause you know I don't approve."
He released my PC as a distraction. (My PC was still around half health from being captured a couple days prior. And had been starved.)

PC sneaks up to Prince's quarters (where he said her possessions had been placed,) and arrives just in time to be framed for Prince's murder. Troops show up, the noble who'd had her imprisoned initially showed up to gloat.

Managed to challenge him to a duel to try and avenge Prince (who'd done me a favor and died in my arms,) and prevent myself from being recaptured.

So, half-health PC. Starved. Level of fatigue. Full of vim and vinegar, motivated by justice, and with a fate worse than death if she fails.

Versus a noble at full health, maybe a little overconfident, but willing to accept a challenge to a duel. With magic and blade, quite a prize should he succeed. Rape was mildly implied, and wasn't nearly the worst thing possible.

What followed was an hour-long duel of awesomeness that had me scouring rulebook & my sheet for every trick and tool I could use, and had the GM occasionally just dropping the rules to do rad thematic shit. It ended with my character being coup de grace'd, surviving, coup de grace'd, surviving again... and while she was having her throat slashed, having a vision from her ancestors saying "You fight for justice and you're doing us proud. You aren't allowed to die here, keep on keepin' on." And then coming back in righteous, flaming, fury to win.

Would have won without divine intervention if GM hadn't been dropping the rules here and there for thematic stuff, if I'd started at a little more HP, or if I"d remembered an extra point of damage reduction for the first 2/3rds of it.

The 20d6 upper limit on fall damage represents terminal velocity. You'd have had to be accelerating in a vacuum to breach it, realistically.

Playing hot potato with a bag full of explosives with the BBEG
Warhammer fantasy roleplay, his family raised him in Nuln, though. Although he earned mad money adventuring he wanted to stay close to nature and not rely on luxury.

Anyways, he got a bunch of mad kills. We had some very deadly poison with I generously poured over an arrow, till it dripped. Got an extremely lucky roll and managed to shoot it above a campfire with a large pot, leading to the death of all the bandits after an hour.

Another time he shot a beastman shaman in the big bad forest with a harpoon, at max rangem from a moving ship. We reeled the bastard in and celebrated.
after the party mage used a rope trick creativly, lifting and dropping a shambling mound from a large hight, i stood ready with a greatsword below it to catch it with an upswing on the drop. suffice to say, falling damage + big 2handed chop mid air before it landed did wonders and murderd it nicely.

It represents terminal velocity for someone trying their hardest not to die from fall damage. It's not hard to intentionally go faster - you can see skydivers do it a bunch.

See, now this is the kind of dickish well thought out heroism that I like to see. None of this "Run of Crits!" bullshit or "I kill the other player because he's such a bitch lol I'm just too badass to stop lol" or fetish fapping to succubi.

I applaud this kind of clever murder whole heartedly.

You get a pass only because in my heart of hearts I believe that you made the Sand People noises.

Good tactics. Always more interesting than "I try for retarded shit and roll high! Honest!"

Now someone post that alpha-marine screen cap.

Nope, sorry anon, your story breaks explicit game rules.

Hitting a giant spider so strong with a giant hammer that it left the stratosphere.
Threw an halberd (that wasn't even Mono, just Best Quality) at a Chaos Space Marine hard enough to impale him with it thanks to righteous fury. Then pulled it out and decapitated him.

Fucking heretics.
My best kill was with my Vanarin(planet of the apes ape) monk. I had climbed the outside of the antagonist's tower and beaten the roof access door in. He knocked me off the tower and last second (he had caused an AoO) I used a grappling hook to catch onto him, which let me swing just enough to grab the side of the tower then pull him over the parapet to his death.

Wasn't me but one of our players.

Guy rolled up a character. Basic run-of-the-mill Paladin with a special love of the sea. Visits and maintains shrines and chapels on the high seas dedicated to his patron Goddess, protects pilgrims and seafarers on their voyagers in return for bread and boarding. He fights in full-plate armour since he's not afraid of drowning, and oddity at sea where nothing heavier than chainmail is seen but otherwise your standard Paladin.

And he hates pirates. HATES them. His goddess isn't a fan either but he took the hate to a new level. Not in a "man those pirate guys are dicks" way but in a "Im going to enjoy every second I spend killing you" way. The kind of hate that is difficult to reconcile with a solidly Good-aligned character.

One stormy evening he's defending a port watchtower from pirates attacking from the sea. The Captain doesn't want the ballista on that watchtower damaging his ship so he sends in his first mate and most of the crew via rowboat to launch an assault. It's just this Lvl 5 Paladin and half a dozen guardsmen against two-score bucaneers, and this Paladin WRECKS them. He cuts his way to the First Mate in the shallows, ignoring the crossbow bolt in his shoulder, disarms him, grapples him and then proceeds to HOLD HIM UNDERWATER until he drowns all the while taking damage from the pirates wailing on him from the sides. A dozen pirates surrendered to him and the four surviving guardsmen. He proceeded to drown them all on the shore within sight of their captain. You can bet he sailed off and never came back.

Did I mention he, as in the player, was raising his voice in prayer to a fictional goddess the entire time this was going on? Shit was intense. But hey, the guy really didn't like pirates.

Accidentally killing the Big Bad by lunging at him, tripping, falling headfirst into him, and knocking us both into a bottomless pit filled with spikes. I did not survive.

The BBEG's love interest. We were losing the final battle, and I was definitely going to die the very next round. With my last breath, I flung my sword at her and impaled her through the throat.

He got to her side just fast enough to watch her die. Sure, he killed me afterward, but I had a big, shit-eating grin on my face.
Are you Captain Hammer?

Naw, man. Fantasy campaign. The bad guy was kind of your noble, conflicted antihero and something of the DM's pet, I think. You know, the guy who's all angsty about it when he's kicking your ass. I just wanted to spite him before I went.
Having my team blast the face off a zombie horse and me finishing it by tearing it's brains out bare handed in CoC.
So Fantastic Hammer!

Dark Heresy. Confronted with a Chimera. Ran straight towards it, heavy bolters from the chimera missed, made my only dodge roll against a multi-laser hit, preventing any damage.

Did an anime-level flip onto the top of the turret using the tank barrel as a support, opened the hatch, and dumped a hallucinogen grenade inside.

The heretical tank crew then proceeded to murder one another, and my acolyte is now in possession of a Chimera APC.
wait... if it has no bottom how do you fill it with snakes?

The one exception is the one campaign where I made a character all about strength and luck who was constantly fucked over by dice rolls. It was a 2-player campaign.

I really liked those characters, and regret not taking the GM's offer to just bullshit out an NPC to bail our underleveled asses out.

A Character of mine once tore off a vampire's head by wrapping a bike chain around its neck.

The same character also put a sponge in a sock.
Dipped the sock in holy water.
And then proceed to cut through 3 vampires.
Punching a Shadow to death after intentionally smashing an alchemist's fire between my hands and lighting myself on fire.

Or working together with the party to stuff a hastily strapped together mismatch of throwables down the gullet of a basilisk.
using macguffin magic to turn into a giant hand to thumb-wrestle the hand of an eldritch being the size of a small house, done by having an actual IRL thumb wrestling match with my DM

just kidding, I lost that thumb wrestling...
Not my kill, but I'm in a game of Shadowrun where each of the PCs woke up in the back of an upside down van with no memories of who they were. We had no character sheets, and picked our characters based purely on physical description.
Last session, our adept decided to kick a tree because there was a guy behind it he wanted to kill. We all laughed, but then the GM revealed that the adept had a power that dealt crazy amounts of damage to immobile structures, and he ended up felling the tree in one blow and crushing the guy behind it.
Wilhelm Screams were played, a good time was had by all.

Defended against a babylonian vampire as a sun spirit slowly turned him into ash in nWoD.

Got to turn into a knight of spring for it too.
While blindfolded I took a wild swing and managed to cleave the Goblin Chief's legs off dealing the killing blow. A lucky kill, but the best by far.
D&D 3.5 core books only. We were level 10, there were three of us; a Fighter, a rogue, and a sorcerer.

Probably one of my favorites to this day.
You mean the beholder with a disintegration ray at-will couldn't break a non-magic door down?
My shadowdancer tore the head off a dragon with a shadow conjuration'd major creation (made an adamintine guillotine blade while my fist was rammed down a hole I tore in its neck, GM okay'd it but ruled I'd lose the arm up to the elbow in the process). Got a new hand by convincing my GM to let me use my shadow minion as a sort of symbiotic prosthetic.

Shit was edgy as hell, it was fun.
i have had this happen. I had an ancient red dragon going up against level tens one time and i rolled so badly it was like the dragon had autism.

He spent the rest of the campaign terrified to hit anyone above the waist.
Well yeah, but given disintegrate just needs to hit, nothing more... The idea of a beholder rolling literally nothing but 1s for 11 rounds seems silly

But burning fate to live is supposed to explicitly defy probability and keep you alive

Oh well, at least twas glorious
I was an Inquisitor and my friend was a something I can't remember currently
We came across a bunch of cultists and Devil in Pathfinder
We convinced the Cultists to kill each other and then me, him and an NPC made a Wooden Finger that shot projectiles and I added a spell that I don't quite remember that makes it do more damage to Others (Demons and such). We shot the Demon and then closed in for the kill, I got impaled on it's horns and then my friend proceed to smash him into bits. It was great.

Even if there was a logic to the chain reaction, fate point dynamic should have dictated that the specific tanks would have been empty.
Survival at any cost is what FP are for.
This reminds me of the final boss fight in an adeva game I was in, except my character had gained the Angel trait and so was immune to ego damage, and used ATT talents to pump her sync ratio to above 200, giving her Heavenly, Celerity, and a free fate point every round, allowing her to use two AT powers at (over) full strength.

For a grand finale I used anti-AT field to merge our evas together with the airship we possessed to form a giant eva Gurren Lagann-style.

My character's girlfriend was there too, except she really didn't need saving because berserkers are strong as fuck in 2.5 and she could just keep getting back up indefinitely after taking critical damage as long as she was willing to take insanity.
Rider Kicked a bandit before he could alert his friends of my presence.

Let us paint in all the colors of murder my love

Fencer that had recently become a paladin in an aggressively neutral setting going up against the assassin that killed his bro for life.

The assassin had a fairly lengthy taunt about how delusional the paladin oath was, no such thing as good and evil, yadda yadda. Usual bad guy crap in a grim grey universe.

>"Let's put it to the test, then."
>Win initiative, declare smite, attack, get a 17 for critical threat.
>Roll a 20 to confirm, which makes it a double-crit by the house rules we were using at the time
>Assassin critfails his saving throw against massive damage and dies instantly.
I remember it happened one of the few times we played Deathwatch. I don't remember much of the details, but I played as a Librarian. A chaos cultist had stolen some tank in a city and we managed to kill him while keeping it mostly intact. We investigated a nearby church/cathedral and it was filled to the brim with chaos cultists. I yelled "THIS AREA IS UNCLEAN! PURIFY IT!" And casted smite as strong as possible. I destroyed most of the cultists instantly and my perils roll was getting shocked with the same damage myself.

I managed to survive, albeit being completely limp for a while. The others dragged me otiside while Tau started arriving. A Tau commander came to talk with us and one of my squad mates had to hold me up as I spoke with them since I was the team leader. All of my hair was gone too. And my helmet. So a Tau commander was talking to a severely burnt, hairless, limp space marine with a burning building behind him.

Now I wanna play Deathwatch again.

I played a one-shot 5e campaign at a friend's house last month that ended with my Monk uppercutting a gargoyle off a banquet table and then jumping into an elbow drop onto its neck while it was prone on the ground, decapitating it.
My 3.5 party played in Warhammer Fantasy's setting because it was my first D&D game (and Warhammer was the only setting I was familiar with) went to the grim darkness of the far future, and my Bard/sorcerer diplomancer got himself a crossbow of scorching ray (also known as a lasgun, not that he would know that). I think we were level 5 or 6.

We bugged out after bringing a Mega Armoured Warboss (using the Iron Golem rules) to 0 hp, and killed the wyrdboy who was going to open the portal that would let them into the WHFB world. I was the first one out, and decided to give my fellows some cover fire. I got a 20 to hit the warboss at extreme range, confirmed, and rolled high enough to finish the big green bastard off.
This was more in a group I was in, but I'm gonna count it.

Killing a red dragon by dropping one half of a portal ring pair into an extremely deep, high pressure zone of an ocean, locking the other onto my warforged's arm and carving the thing to death with incredibly concentrated jets of water.

This was in Only War, and our fleet had come across a Space Hulk filled with Orks.

Our squad had found a gigantic chamber, with Orks covering the floor, and a Gargant in the middle of it, which they were just starting to power up to move through sheer belief in their Gods.

We were on a set of gangplanks and walkways about halfway up. We had a small squad of the commando-type NPCs with us, and were meeting up with another squad of them, one of which had a detonator on him. This detonator would blow the charges placed under the floor of the room, killing the Orks and stopping the Gargant.

Unfortunately, the squad we were meeting had been shot, and we didn't know which body the detonator was on.

Orks were pouring up ladders onto our level, and we were trying to slowly advance and shoot our way to the bodies, and it was working just fine. Until an Ork Nob showed up.

The heavy gunner and the medic full-on sprinted to the furthest body, with the rest of the squad laying down covering fire. The heavy gunner managed to get off a few blasts at the Nob, before it engaged and cut his comrade in half with its power klaw.

As it was engaged in combat, he couldn't shoot, so he drops his auto-cannon and rummages through the body. Luckily we'd picked the one with the detonator, so he presses it and the floor explodes, causing total devastation.

The Orks we're fighting are stunned and completely lost. The Nob takes some heavy steps towards where the Gargant (and, as far as he's concerned, the living embodiment of his Gods) had fallen. This gives the medic enough time to seize the auto-cannon and blast away at him, scoring just enough hits to kill him.

We then all ran as fast as we could while that section of the hulk collapsed behind us.
>but my character left a small crater so deep that it left a crater
Two that happened in the same encounter, and some of the few that wasn't stolen from me by the Fighter or Wizard.
1. Pinned a goblin to the ceiling with an arrow and his own spiky armor. When the place was renovated afterwards they left the arrow and armor there.

2. A little bit after that a Hellhound showed up and breath weapon'd the guards we were with, my character's gf was the only one who failed their Reflex roll. Next count I roll max damage on a shot and down it, rushing over to the lady to see how badly she was roasted. Funnily enough they have four Hellhounds as pets now, they're very warm and snuggly.
Probably the time I cut an eldritch abomination in half.

Long story short, we were hunting down an evil cult sacrificing people to a squidbomination, things went pear-shaped, and we were facing something about the size of a house with more tentacles than a hentai convention. I knew we were fucked, so I told everyone else to run while I covered their retreat. What I hoped for was that it'd chew on my corpse long enough for them to get away, and maybe use one of the cannons back in town to avenge me. What I didn't count on was the luckiest roll of my life.

For those unfamiliar with the system, in Savage Worlds you roll your standard assortment of polyhedrals to determine success - a d4 if you're terrible, a d6 if you're average, and so on. If you roll the highest possible number, it's an "ace," and the die explodes - roll again, stack the numbers. You then compare it to a difficulty - your enemy's defense if you're attacking, and their toughness for determining damage - for every four you beat it by, you "raise" - a critical success. You can only get one raise on attacks, but you can get any number when damaging your opponent - and each is an extra wound. Three wounds is generally a kill, but sometimes (like tonight) big monsters can get substantially more.

Opening attack, I hit it with an Ace, so I get a Raise on my attack. Now I get an extra damage die. I then proceed to Ace both of those when I roll damage, and get several more Aces when I reroll. I forget the final number, but it was somewhere in the neighborhood of eight raises. Which, as it turns out, was not just enough to kill it, but enough that its only hope of surviving was to ace its soak roll. It did not.

And that's how my last stand turned into me killing the cult's pet God in a single hit.

taking down an succubus with a critical, power attacked, smite evil'd great sword swing, and then skinning it's wings with a natural 20 and having my cleric make a scabbard for me from it's wing leather on another natural 20

>Zap four guys to death in one go like I'm in Equilibrium
I confronted a prominent capa (crime lord) who was directly responsible for the untimely and rather horrible deaths of a long running NPC ally and his family.

She was fairly confident that despite all the evidence, she had enough pull in the city that nobody would do a thing about it, and she was probably right. It was that kind of city.

So while were standing there, the four of us lowly thieves and brutes, in front of one the heads of the underworld, and her entourage, in her own tavern, being told to go fuck ourselves, my alchemist realised that maybe it was a good time to use that vial of Aqua Regina I had kept hidden in my sleeve for a rainy day.

His aim was true, and you could hear the screams clear across the city, as the GM told it.

More like a deny, but a xenos in carapace armor was fighting a guardsman I had rolled up, and I had apparently gotten him down to one wound and he used some kind of drug and failed a roll, which caused him to take one wound in damage. The GM told the guy I was fighting suddenly liquefied and began to leak out of his armor
I still took that armor
Above the pit was a pit in the ceiling. The spikes were on the bottom, then once you hit them you fall through the floor into the ceiling pit and fall onto the spikes again.

Being a gigantic half-orc warrior with 22 strength and somehow get thrown like a baseball by a dwarf ranger who rolled a nat 20 on throwing me to stab an ice giant in the face with a mercurial greatsword
It was simple but I really enjoyed planeshifting a traitor Paladin turned Anti-Paladin BBEG Lieutenant to Lawful Good plane (Heaven in this case) along with myself for me and my impromptu angel buddies to beat the shit out of him.

I know it doesn't sound like a lot but my DM made it sound cool as fuck because he liked the idea of me taking the former servant of law and good this dude was to get his rightful comeuppance for betraying his former allies.

I wasn't even a good guy but thought it was a good idea.
i got one for my paladin too. Not a kill, but still funny imo

My Tremere, a former US Army Chaplain from WW2, put down one of the closest things he had to a friend last session, to save them from being tortured and humiliated infront of the Camarilla court.

The person he put down was a former Nazi Occultist and overall emotional wreck who was trying to make amends for all the horrible things he did in the war and carried the burden of True Faith.
Not exactly a kill, but it was a complete undermining of someone's strategy.

So, we're playing ffrpg. I'm playing a blue mage who, unfortunate, can't do much damage against Cagnazzo, the fiend of water. I had made him with a martial arts flair, gloves as weapons, advantages to give him two attacks, and flavored his blue magic as martial techniques.

This was a terrible idea in practice as his attacks did pithy damage, and I had yet to get a spell that would let me do significant damage, especially with splitting level up boosts between strength and magic.

What I did have was a small pharmacy to support allies and some battle items (ala antarctic winds).

So, Cagnazzo uses his Tsunami attack, dealing damage and freezing two people. (Can't act, physical damage kills them)

My Blue Mage is suitably impressed, lamenting he can't learn it. Cagnazzo gloats it's the power of the fiends and such, far beyond any mortal power, yadda yadda.

I mention there is one thing it's not beyond.

My paranoia.

A weak fire battle item to one of the stronger frozen characters deals a pithy 1 fire elemental damage after his considerable magic armor. That's still enough to unfreeze him.

He proceeded to beat Cagnazzo's face in.

Wow. You sound like a right cunt.
My monk in 5th Edition got into an aerial dogfight with a young green dragon (assisted by a pair of Winged Boots and a ring of poison resistance) and managed to punch it out of the air repeatedly until the accumulated fall damage pretty much crippled it. The druid and the warlock were the ones to get the actual kill on the ground but it still felt fucking awesome.

Then the elf got a club to the head from a skeleton and somehow survived bleeding out for the entire fight.
You mean your dick, right?

I filled in for a campaign my older brother was running for his friends in high school.

Good times
Burrowing into and eating the heart of a super mutant behemoth or tearing the still beating heart of a deathclaw matriarch from its chest.
Well, we had no magical weapons and thus no way to actually touch the shadow as it slowly drained our strength away. Alchemist's Fire was ruled as magical by the DM, which allowed me to hit the shadow. My usage of it was not explicitly in the rules, but I pitched it and the DM was on board.

So I punched it to death with the fire on my fists.
