I am one of many, but one thing's for sure,
If you are hit by me, your death I'll assure.

Don't blame me if you get hurt, I'm just a kid,
I'll end the war that's happening. Hope, I'll rid.

I like being in airplanes, and I like skydiving too,
I grew up in the Alamo. Don't believe me? It's true!

Everyone says I'll change the world, for better or worse,
All I know is one thing. Use me; you won't need a hearse.

  • $\begingroup$ The Alamo is a Spanish Mission in San Antonio Texas. Alamos on the other hand has a different meaning (Cottonwood Trees) $\endgroup$ – DEEM Jul 16 '18 at 21:37
  • $\begingroup$ @DEEM, I'm well aware (After all, I grew up in Texas ;) ). This was just a play on words here. $\endgroup$ – Joe-You-Know Jul 16 '18 at 21:41

This one seems grim, but are you

There was more than one atomic bomb developed

Don't blame me if you get hurt, I'm just a kid,

Nickname "Little Boy"

I'll end the war that's happening. Hope, I'll rid.

Ended WWII on the Eastern Front

I like being in airplanes, and I like skydiving too,

Was dropped from an airplane

I grew up in the Alamo. Don't believe me? It's true!

Everyone says I'll change the world, for better or worse,

Beginning of the Atomic Age (post-1945) changed the world

All I know is one thing. Use me; you won't need a hearse.

Won't need a hearse if there's nothing left

As for the title,

The other bomb used on Nagasaki was called Fat Man

    $\begingroup$ As grim as it is, this is correct. $\endgroup$ – Joe-You-Know Jul 16 '18 at 15:58
  • $\begingroup$ The Alamo is a place in San Antonio Texas where the siege and killing of Americans at the hand of Spanish army occurred. Alamos on the other hand means Cottonwood Trees-- I am told. $\endgroup$ – DEEM Jul 16 '18 at 21:29

Are you

Water

I am one of many, but one thing's for sure,

Water is one thing of many you need to live, or it is one of the many things like earth, wind, fire, water, and metal.

If you are hit by me, your death I'll assure.

If you fall from to high onto water it is not good.

Don't blame me if you get hurt, I'm just a kid, I'll end the war that's happening. Hope, I'll rid.

I am not sure.

I like being in airplanes, and I like skydiving too,

You need water on airplanes and rain is like water skydiving.

I grew up in the Alamo. Don't believe me? It's true!

Maybe a river?

Everyone says I'll change the world, for better or worse,

Water is needed but spoiled water is bad.

All I know is one thing. Use me; you won't need a hearse.

You need water at least every three days.

Regarding the title

Water and oil? Oil is fatty.

  • $\begingroup$ Good guess, but this isn't the answer I'm looking for. The answer I'm looking for is very different than this one. $\endgroup$ – Joe-You-Know Jul 16 '18 at 15:37

Are you

Lightning

I am one of many, but one thing's for sure,

there can be more lightnings in a storm

If you are hit by me, your death I'll assure.

or maybe God gives you a second chance

Don't blame me if you get hurt, I'm just a kid, I'll end the war that's happening. Hope, I'll rid.

A lightning lives only few seconds , in the past it could give a sign of war or peace

I like being in airplanes, and I like skydiving too,

it is skydiving , the part with the airplanes it's scary

I grew up in the Alamo. Don't believe me? It's true!

Can be born in any city with clouds and then move to another place

Everyone says I'll change the world, for better or worse,

some say that lightning can be used to get energy and some say that it destroys the planet

All I know is one thing. Use me; you won't need a hearse.

Using it is better than running from it

Regarding the title

it can be thunder his brother , it makes larger sounds so it could be more 'fat' ?

    $\begingroup$ Interesting answer, but some of these don't fit really well. +1 from me, though. $\endgroup$ – Joe-You-Know Jul 17 '18 at 14:08
