An assassination method is one of many different ways to kill a Sue, ranging from the classical arrow to the chest, to the more creative method of pitting them against another Sue with a similar description. This is an incomplete list of those methods, as listing all sorts of banal assassination methods (Pointy Objects, guns, pushing Sues off high places, etc.) is a waste of space and time—we'd have to list every time an agent broke a Sue's neck. They are classified by the continuum in which they took place, usually but not always the continuum of the badfic. Assassination methods which are closely in line with what could happen in canon tend to be more effective at getting the continuum to revert to its normal state.
Note: Some methods involve feeding the Sue to a canonical monster, and hungry beasts are often considered a neat way to dispose of the bodies regardless; agents should be aware that Upstairs does not approve of this method being used too often, as it is liable to leave the canonical monsters uncanonically fat.
Anime and Manga Edit
Black Butler Edit
- Knifed in the back, then in the heart - Courtesy of Violet Rose Greenfield and Miguel Correa. Notable chiefly because the Sue in question had multiple supernatural heritages; she "chose" none of them and was therefore vulnerable to conventional weapons. (Also, she was weak from supposedly having had her soul eaten anyway.)
Death Note Edit

- Fire hose, Mermaid karaoke, Arc-en-ciel and Earth-Shattering Kaboom - This odd combination was used by Sergio Turbo, Nikki Cherryflower, Ari, Tera and Corolla to kill the incredibly overpowered Alyxx Heart: she was weakened with water and a high pitched song (her two weaknesses according to the fic), then she was left on an uncanonical planet, charged, and killed with an Arc-en-ciel blast that also blew up the planet itself.
- Stabbed with bad writing - Agent Tera threw 'stabs of fear and jealousy' through five bit characters and a Sue-wraith.
Monster Musume Edit

- Mosasaur - A giant, predatory marine lizard from the Cretaceous period, closely related to modern monitor lizards and snakes. Night Yagami was fed to one kept by the DMFF.
dramatically oversizedmosasaur currently living in what was once Jurassic World was used to dispose of a very overpowered Owen Grady cosplayer.

- Devoured by the Kraken - Agent Lapis convinced Captain Davy Jones to sic his pet on the Stus Titus and Christopher Sparrow.

- Port Royal citizens - Tiernan, James, Phil, and Amanda were tarred and feathered and set loose in Port Royal where the citizens dealt with them for proclaiming, rather loudly, that they were pirates.

- Agatean Thunder Clay and Klatchian coffee - used by Agents Manx, Shadow, and Jill Greenleaf to kill Angua Sue. They strapped her to an activated barrel of Thunder Clay, force-fed her the coffee, and threw her over the edge of the Disc. Klatchian coffee, according to Jill, "strips away the fluffy pink clouds that protect the human mind. And Sues are practically made of those little delusions and plotholes and excuses." Therefore, it causes them to disintegrate. The Thunder Clay exploded before Angua Sue fully disintegrated, thus winning Shadow the five-dollar bet.

- Given to Greyback- Agents Rina and Randa fed Ordellya to the werewolf. And his entire pack.

- Quintaped - Employed by Agents Tawaki and Melpomene against an unidentified daughter of Merlin and Ravenclaw.

The Jaunt Edit
- The Jaunt - from the Stephen King short story. Used by Agents Laburnum and Foxglove to remove a Lisa Simpson Sue. Evidence suggests the Jaunt disassembles the body on a molecular level while leaving the brain alive to experience an apparent eternity with no outside input, which generally annihilates the sanity. If set to Nil, the body is not reassembled at the other end, thus making it a perfect body disposal system.
The Lord of the Rings/The Hobbit Edit

They fixed this by tying the Sue's arms to a rock in Mordor and her legs to a tree in Mirkwood, then knocking her out, allowing the canonical distance to snap back.

- Orthanc - Agents Jay and Acacia threw Alexis Moonbeam off the tower's roof.
- Poison - Agent Constance Sims forced poison down the throat of Imarátoiel, who had mentioned that she wanted to be dosed. You should really be careful what you wish for, especially if you are a Sue being hunted by PPC agents.

- Torture - Agent Cassie Young used this method on an illegitimate Aragorn and Arwen's Daughter!Sue. It took rather a long time and the job had to be finished off by Nat Freidar. This particular method of execution was not regarded with favour by the Flowers.
- Ungoliant - Agents Tadkeeta and Eclectica fed Vanyáliel to her.
- Watcher in the Water - employed by Agents Jay and Acacia to dispose of Laurel.
- Witch-king - employed by Agents Dafydd and Selene to kill Sairalindë. Apparently the Witch-king did not recognise her as his daughter, despite her claims to this status.

- Gloomer - employed by Agents Nin Brandt and Luxury for convenient disposal of Tsarmina Sue, a.k.a. Tsuemina.

- Salamandastron - employed by Agents Laburnum and Foxglove to dispose of Cregga Sue and Bladestripe. This may sound odd until one considers that Salamandastron is an extinct volcano, and therefore if one portals back in time far enough, at some point it must have been active...
- Skrabblag - employed by Agents Laburnum and Foxglove against Mariel Sue.
- Teeth of the Deeps - employed by Agents Naomi and Drake to dispose of Fernflower.
- Yo Karr - employed by Agents Laburnum and Foxglove for bulk disposal of Katie, David, Jessica Jenks, Jessica Clark, Jane, Heather, Chris and Logan (also known as Tigerlily, Aggron, Crystallyn, Jane, Yeather, Dixon and Tollaw - or possibly Tallow, it changed at random moments).

He'll remain there until he can serve a purpose as an organ donor, at which time he will become all dead—unless the Scarrans destroy the facility first, in which case he'll still die. It's a win-win situation.

Five Nights at Freddy's Edit

- Queen Gohma - Agents E.V.L. and Backslash accidentally portaled two Four Swords Sues into Queen Gohma's chamber (Ocarina of Time canon). The aftermath was exactly what you'd expect.
Mass Effect Edit
- Ardat Yakshi - Agents Mark Sienna, Maria Nightingale, and Florestan dropped a particularly lecherous Gary Stu off at Morinth's apartment. Morinth then proceeded to cash a rain check she had formed with the Stu, and melded with him. The meld killed him. It is unknown if melding with a Gary Stu affected Morinth in any way.

- Red - of the webcomic No Rest for the Wicked. Hates "clever beasts" and therefore was a perfect execution method for the Cluny replacement of That Series, whom she chopped up with her axe, despite the fact that "clever beasts" was stretching a point with that particular character replacement. Used by Agents Manx and Shadow.
- Agent Chakkik - Killed a replacement of Lord Voldemort with his acidic breath. He used the same means to dispose of the body of Chloe Riddle, the primary Sue, who had already been slain.

Officially forbidden as an execution method shortly after they used it.

Vetoed by Naomi, Stormsong, and Skyfire on the grounds of good taste and the fact that "If you're physically capable of doing that after seeing this fic, you need professional help."
