Real Life Usage
The One Turn Kill isn't a major Deck type and hasn't been used to win major tournaments, but is sometimes popular among casual players.
"Gate Guardian" has the highest ATK for a Warrior-Type monster that can included in the Main Deck. Players have included it in Decks revolving around the One Turn Kill, so that they may Summon "UFOroid Fighter" with 9900 ATK. Cards like "Heavy Storm" or "Giant Trunade" are often used to clear the opponent's Spell & Trap Card Zone beforehand.
Since "Gate Guardian" is considered to be a Dead Draw, when not used in the One Turn Kill, stronger versions of the Deck include cards like "Allure of Darkness", "Destiny Draw" and "Trade-In" to dump it in the Graveyard without costing the player card advantage. If they gather the other components of the OTK, they can use "Phantom of Chaos" or "Monster Reincarnation" to effectively get back "Gate Guardian".
A "HERO" engine can be useful as an alternative to "Gate Guardian". "Elemental HERO Prisma" can dump a "UFOroid" from the deck to act as the Fusion material in its place, and "Destiny HERO - Dogma" has 3400 ATK, almost as much as as "Gate Guardian". "Elemental HERO Stratos" can be used to search out both "Elemental HERO Prisma" and "Destiny HERO Dogma", and in turn additional "HERO" and Warrior support can be used with them.
Before "Cyber Dragon's Limiting, "Cyber Twin Dragon could be used as an alternative use for "Power Bond" to perform another OTK. Other alternatives include "Limiter Removal" to double the ATK of other Machine-Type monsters in the Deck, or "UFOroid Fighter" if Summoned with a weaker Warrior-Type monster (as of September 2010's ban list, Cyber Dragon is no longer limited)
"Zubaba General" can act as a substitute for "UFOroid Fighter" if the player cannot get it out. As a Rank 4 XYZ Monster is it much easier to summon, and its effect can use "Gate Guardian" or "Destiny HERO - Dogma" to gain even more ATK than "UFOroid Fighter".
This combo was used once in Yu-Gi-Oh! GX, although not strictly as a One Turn Kill.
Syrus Truesdale used "Power Bond" to combine his "UFOroid" with Jaden Yuki's "Elemental Hero Tempest" against the Paradox Brothers. This gave "UFOroid Fighter" 8000 ATK, which was enough to attack the Paradox Brothers' "Dark Guardian" and lower their Life Points to 0.
