When Scott strikes a death blow against an opponent, that person explodes in a shower of coins:. Especially in older games with simpler graphics, often an enemy you killed would simply blink out of existence, leaving behind a coin, which is what the movie is riffing on here. In skateboarding video games, you would press some buttons to make your character execute a grind, and then you would have to keep hitting particular buttons in sequence to maintain the grind, and the longer you kept up the proper button-pushing rhythm, the longer you would keep doing the trick and collecting points.

Video games often feature gigantic, exaggerated skateboard parks and death-defying tricks far beyond what would be possible in real life, and the Scott Pilgrim movie plays off of this.

ROSE: I would rather stumble around quarries than anything else. Each of us has our department. Tom explains things for us and to us. Jim is more fun than a puppy. We sometimes engage in foolishness.
