Film genre characteristic of the years between with 20's and late 40's. Dark, gritty crime fiction: usually a heist, murder, or other such crime. We're talking Tommy Guns, Private Detectives, and women you could still call broads. Classic examples include The Maltese Falcon and Chinatown: modern examples include The Usual Suspects. Heavily influenced the Cyberpunk sub-genre.
I watch too much Noir. Situations like this have me asking, "What would Humphrey Bogart do?"
To gain initiation into a criminal organization by competing a hit. Most common amongst street gangs and organized gang members.
Well Johnny you're almost an official member of the Gambino Family. To complete your initiation you must make bones: kill an Irish Mob soldier. Complete this, and under the authority as a Gambino Consigliere, the Family will welcome you with open arms.
In video games, an ability to continuously move the opponent in order to keep him off balance and make it easier for your allies to kill. Very fast, coordinated, and fun. Much like real life juggling, success renders the intended target dizzy. The shoryuken is a common and effective example, as it pops the enemy in the air and with a little skill will keep the enemy from countering and thus in a world of hurt.
Once I landed the first shoryuken on him, I just kept on juggling him. He was dead before he landed on the ground.
