Geodude6 18:01, 10 December 2011 (UTC)It is my opinion that the name of this category page should be changed to sacrificial moves.

I clicked 'sacrificial moves' to get here, and expected a list of moves with drawbacks for the user, like Close Combat or Double Edge (including these listed). The title of the page as it is, though less succinct, is much clearer. Colintron 17:00, 1 February 2012 (UTC)

I don't think perish song fits here.

All the other moves are certain to cause the user to faint if successful.Sumwun (talk) 04:32, 4 January 2016 (UTC)

Whether it is successful or not, it will still make the user faint.--ForceFire 04:53, 4 January 2016 (UTC)
By that logic, any moves that cause recoil damage could go here because, like Perish Song, it can make the user faint. Perish Song itself doesn't make the user faint, it gives what is effectively a status condition that causes the user to faint. slimey01 23:19, 4 January 2016 (UTC)
