Includes movement functionality solely meant for dodging.


Alternate name: Evasion

The first video game about Dodging was released on March 1979.

Ubisoft, Capcom and Sega has published most of these games

If the player has to cope with normal movement functionality, then this does not apply.

Usually these are in form of quick and somewhat short rolls sideways or backwards. Sometimes may appear as a short dash like move or a jump (e.g. backflip).

Generally the dodges are unusable or awkward for anything else, as compared to normal movement.
