Best Answer

Yes. A pawn may checkmate a king in the right situation. Note, however, that technically speaking a king is never "killed" but is checkmated. The game is over before the pawn actually captures or "kills" the king.

You can't "kill" the king with any piece. The king is the one piece that cannot be taken. The game is won when the king is in check and cannot move.

How this is done depends on the position, but it's usually accomplished with the other surrounding pieces blocking the king's escape path.

How do you use a pawn to checkmate a king in chess?

The pawn can checkmate the king but only in conjunction with at least one other piece to protect the pawn from capture by the king and at least one enemy piece placed near the king so that it cuts off any escape avenues the king would have. If a pawn places a king in check and the king is completely surrounded by his own pieces in such a way that its only move would be capture the pawn and if no enemy piece is placed so that it can capture that pawn and if the pawn is protected from capture by one of its own pieces, the pawn has checkmated the king.
