As described on his Youtube channel,[1]

Can you guess if these fighting game combos are going to kill? "Will it Kill?" is a show about funny fighting game clips, throwing rocks, betting fake points, mind palaces, and bad audio. We'll show a fighting game clip and pause it on one of the hits of a combo. You have to vote on whether the combo will kill or not. There are no drops, Time-outs don't count, and we try to get as close to optimal as possible. Nothing can be done about the audio, we're trying our best our here bruh. It does get better after the half."
