What Does OHKO Mean in a Text?

In gaming, a move can be described as an OHKO if it totally depletes an enemy's power (or kills the enemy) with one shot (e.g., a spell, move or punch). OHKO is mostly commonly used in fighting games (i.e., hand-to-hand combat), but it can also apply to other types of games.

If you apply an OHKO, you can be said to have 'one shot' your opponent.
