Invincibility frames

Other (objects, etc.) concept

Employs moments of invincibility tied to certain animation frames, such as certain dodges. This tag is only when the iframes aren't specified better with something else.


Alternate names: Invulnerability frames
Name variations: iframes

The first video game about Invincibility frames was released on February 2009.

Chucklefish and Namco Bandai has published most of these games

Although originally this related to specifically static sprite frames, modern games don't always employ such mechanics anymore and thus this more generally refers to just a moment of invincibility associated with certain actions like dodging.
