Playing through a game, and I've encountered a verb / combination I've never seen before. The full dialogue is:


Am I looking at some stem of きめ・る? Or something else entirely? What's the statement mean?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Yes, it's the stem of 決める plus セリフ (plus the past tense of 使う): [決]{き}め[台詞]{ゼリフ} is one's "signature phrase".

The sentence is thus

Did you already use your signature phrase on the princess?

I'll leave you to make sense of it in the context of your game.
