Immortal protagonist

Creatures theme

The protagonist is incapable of reaching final death through natural causes such as age, often excluding violence but not always even that.


The first video game about Immortal protagonist was released on August 12, 1992.

Bethesda Softworks, Namco Bandai and Electronic Arts has published most of these games

* Immortality

Actual gameplay mechanics:
* Deathless
* No fail state
Many strategy games that go across the ages would seem to belong under this tag, but most of them ignore completely how the ruler survives through the time or even if the player actually controls the ruler and not the civilization instead or multiple rulers (some game makers just don't think of that and ignore it or don't care of it).
When combined with undead protagonist, or other protagonist that is assumed to be immortal by default, then this would imply the character is completely incapable of dying or being destroyed by any means. In other cases this is exactly what immortality tag describes, characters incapable of dying of natural causes, excluding violence.

* Must be in game fluff, effectively excluding unexplained game mechanics.
