Simply coming into contact with your enemies is enough to hurt or even kill you. It is most commonly seen in platform games.
Alternate names: Killing touch, Creature collision damage, Contact damage
The first video game about Harmful touch was released in 1981.
Should NOT be used when two moving vehicles, especially aircraft, are in question. Or an aircraft and a solid structure (do you really expect an aircraft to survive a fullspeed collision with a highrise?).
This is sometimes reversed. For example, when Sonic does his spinning thing. Or when the game uses jumping on heads as a form of attack.
