"..the "dark halo" that surrounds the Milky Way
... is more than ten times as much mass as all of the visible stars, gas, and dust in the rest of the galaxy."

No, that's genocide. Overkilling is like genocide squared, but squared-er.

The Reapers wipe everything clean, destroying thousands of races over countless millennia. I would call that genocide, since there's a purpose (however unknowable) behind it. Overkilling would be those quintillions of quintillions of Reapers swarming everything, blotting out the stars, and annihilating the galaxy behind all recognition.

Besides, I think there's maybe a few less Reapers than that.

They created genocide multiple times to evolve themselves. If that's not over kill then idk what is XD

I had a simple sig with my website, but got modded by GameFaqs. Then had a joke sig saying I hatted GameFaqs mods and got modded for that too.

Definition of Overkill: the capability to obliterate a target with more weapons (especially nuclear weapons) than are required Any effort that seems to go farther than would be necessary to achieve its goal

Definition of Genocide: the deliberate and systematic destruction, in whole or in part, of an ethnic, racial, religious, or national group.

I would say Reapers are both Genociding and overkilling. Seriously one Reaper almost pwned the galaxy (The entire reaper species=overkill) The reapers genocide the entire galaxy. So I guess it can be seen as both =P

It's a nice idea, but I seriously doubt that the collected mass of the reapers is larger than the rest of the galaxy combined. There's no way they could sustain themselves, unless they can consume suns or something... and if they could, why would they even bother with trifles like the sentient races?
