When a pawn makes it to your opponent's palace, it is sometimes called a devil or small ghost. And when there of two of these ghosts at your opponent's elephant eye or armpit files (a term I intend to petition against...), you are ready for his kill. Normally, another major piece or the king is needed to make this kill, and an opponent's advisor is usually rid in the process. In active play however, it is seldom possible to make this kill as your pawns are seldom allowed to move that far into enemy territory.
