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.
