If an ally is dealt any amount of damage by an attack or minion with the overkill keyword, and if the damage kills the ally, the excessive damage is applied to the identity of the player who controls the ally.
If a minion is dealt any amount of damage by an attack (by event, ally, attachment, or identity) with the overkill keyword, and if the damage kills the minion, the excessive damage is applied to the villain.
All of the overkill damage is applied simultaneously.
- Damage dealt by overkill to an identity or villain doesn’t count as an attack against that character (e.g. it doesn’t trigger retaliate).
- If a card ability counts excess damage dealt, that ability counts the same value of excess damage that is calcuated when resolving the overkill keyword. (e.g. Into the Fray)
