Small Ghost Ascending Emperor Throne Checkmate 小鬼坐龙廷 (xiǎo guǐ zuò lóng tíng)

When a pawn is able to come into proximity of the opponent's palace, it is sometimes referred to as 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. This kill is not so commonly seen but demonstrates that the pawn could still pack a lethal punch. Enjoy!
