Alternate names: Weak protagonist, Low health

The first video game about Fragile protagonist was released in 1989.

Ubisoft, NovaLogic and Ubisoft Entertainment has published most of these games

Unlike in most modern games, the protagonist can't handle much harm and dies or becomes incapacitated quite easily. Common feature of tactical shooters.

This is not meant to overlap with instant death, even if that technically is a sub-tag of this.

This does not imply realistic damage, only that the protagonist is excessively fragile.
