倒す seems to be used a lot in anime, in the meaning of “defeating” someone. That was not offered as a synonym by WK so I only entered “to topple” …someone, like in sumo (I was thinking, which would also suggest to defeat someone). But, perhaps there’s a different kanji waiting for me that better encompasses this meaning and I’m confusing these two?
I’d be grateful to learn it properly from the start, rather than have to realize my mistake later on. So, can 倒す be translated as to defeat (someone)? Is that a proper translation or is the same “sounds” used with a different kanji in mind?
