The bad Joker's Death in Final Fantasy VI.

Joker's Death (ジョーカーデス, Jōkā Desu?, lit. Joker Death), also known as Joker Doom and Death Joker, is a recurring ability in the series. It is commonly associated with the Slots ability, being the most undesirable effect in most cases as it instantly kills the party and ignores immunity to Death.

Death Joker is a possible result of Cait Sith's Slot Limit Break by matching Face/Face/Bar. It is the worst ability to get as it instantly kills all allies while ignoring immunity to Instant Death. However, if the battle is a Side Attack, it will only target one side of the party, thus avoiding an instant Game Over if at least one character is alive on the other side.
