Possibly that one which the queen and rook continuously move in a railroad manner - except that instead of driving the king to the edge of the board, the pawn is the edge this time.

Some have named it a rail road mate, while others have named it a kill box mate (it's like a box being rotated down to the other side).

Checkmates which are delivered by the Queen directly adjacent to the enemy King are called "Kiss of Death" checkmates.

But then again there is that pawn so it could also be called a "traitor pawn" checkmate.

It's the dovetail, when something is supporting the queen as she delivers mate diagonally
