When a pawn is able to come into proximity of the opponent's palace, it is sometimes called a small ghost 小鬼. In this kill, the pawn moves to the center of the palace, like ascending to the emperor's throne; while other pieces move in for the kill. Quite a nice name. I have only found this name in very few books, but nevertheless, it is quite a nice kill. Enjoy!
