comment Why was the Japanese Army's fatalities inflicted:suffered ratio so low in the Pacific theatre?
I understand; as I said, I did the research. I think the question should be clarified so that others don't need to repeat the research. The term is not, afaict, standard in history, so should be clarified in the question.

comment Why did Gen. Lee (Civil War) surrender to the U.S?
One surrenders not because one is unwilling to fight, but because it is no longer possible to win. The Northern advantage in logistics, materials, and resources were unsurmountable. Or to quote a famous general, the point of war isn't to die for your country, it is to get some other b.....d to die for his country. War is about achieving victory, not spending lives.

That @PieterGeerkens is the explanation that I suggested be added to the question. I did a search for the term and I can find references to the term only on video game sites, which suggests that it is not part of the normal practice of history. I suggested that perhaps OP might want to update the question to include the specialist term.

Given that every kill results in a death, the ratio is therefore fixed at 1:1? or perhaps there are some assumptions that you're making that you haven't explained?

You might want to explain the kill:death ratio for non-videogamers.
