Simply coming into contact with your enemies is enough to hurt or even kill you. It is most commonly seen in platform games.
Alternate names: Killing touch, Creature collision damage, Contact damage
Should NOT be used when two moving vehicles, especially aircraft, are in question. Or an aircraft and a solid structure (do you really expect an aircraft to survive a fullspeed collision with a highrise?).
This is sometimes reversed. For example, when Sonic does his spinning thing. Or when the game uses jumping on heads as a form of attack.
