What makes a Kaizo hack a Kaizo?

I should probably know this, growing up with Mario and all, but what draws the line at Kaizo and normal hacks? I was thinking of making a Kaizo hack, but I didn't want to make it and then have people yell "That's not Kaizo!" when I thought it is. So what are the specifications for a hack to be Kaizo?

--------------------

My YouTube username is DTE225.

Kaizo is usually seen as a hack with a base of difficult application of unfair traps. These traps can be in any shape or form, ranging from difficult jumps to leaps of faith.

You can also change this to difficult puzzles with an unfair twist. These are generally also called kaizo, but I think that the term "makjang" is coined for this aswell.

If you only have difficult jumps, it can be pit, instead of kaize. Or maybe even edge.



I might put some sort of signature here once. I guess.
Design elements include, but are not limited to:
-forced damage
-required glitch abuse
-do or die situations
-giving you items and power-ups as you need them and never more often
-less open level design, usually having a specific intended way to go through the level
I think it's one of those things where watching a video would be easier than trying to explain it.

How am I so creative? I think taking walks might have something to do with it.
Every single level I will ever make in SMM2 will be easier than Ultra Necrozma.

Why not go to my Youtube channel?

Kaizo is named after "Kaizo Mario World"
So anything harder than or equal to Kaizo Mario World is considered kaizo.

Of course you should fight fire with fire, you should fight everything with fire.
