Splash City

In video games, beginning with Mario Kart, there are oftentimes water hazards that lead to death by drowning. While these deaths are usually just short term setbacks that give the other player an advantage, the visual impact of seeing a character or vehicle plunge into un-navigable liquid is jarring. It is appropriate to declare "splash city" when this occurs, as a way to highlight and mock the characters descend into the liquid abyss.
