    wouldn't it be

    /kill <selector> <custom message>

    I agree with Brenn Boyer.
    It should be
    /kill

    @brenn boyer more like:

    /cmkill <target:target> [ <CustomMessage:string> <root|capped> ]

    • root would use EXACTLY the message specified, allowing usage of #p for who was killed, and #e for who killed.
    • capped does what root does, but it caps with the #es.
      For example:
           ... #p  (typed message) #e ...

    but i agree

    Why not just. /kill <selector> <custom message where @v is the victim and @k is the killer if there is one>

    You're trying to add something that already exist.
    Disable death messages and trigger a command to output /tellraw when the player dies, if you know how to use them well, you can make them happen by specified events.

    Perhaps a datapack file would work better?

    there should maybe just be a way to implement custom death messages in data/ resource packs. You could define a predicate for the death message to be displayed and the death message itself in a JSON file. The text could use VICTIM and KILLER inside to set as the victim/killer.

    I agree do a /kill <player> <message>

    EX: /kill Player Minecraft   * Player was killed by Minecraft

    It works with some command blocks, so this is just a short cut

    It Should be:

    /kill <player_name> <custom_death_text>

    Or

    /killraw <player_name> <json_custom_death_text>

    If you want to kill someone with commands and display a custom death message, it's already possible, by running the following commands:

    gamerule showdeathmesssages false
    tellraw @a {"rawtext":[{"selector":"@p"},{"text":" died by an unknown force"}]}
    kill @p
    gamerule showdeathmeessages true

    Java Edition:

    gamerule showDeathMessages false
    tellraw @a [{"selector":"@p"},{"text":" died by an unknown force"}]
    kill @p
    gamerule showDeathMessages true
