i-frame dodges, quite simply. If your timing is true, you're invincible; if not then you're fucked. Also to a lesser extent counters.

Radiant Dawn does the opposite of this. The Black Knight is half-final boss and half-grinding prevention kit in Path of Radiance, and then in Radiant Dawn he's on your side for half the game.

My favorite variation I've ever seen was in GTA V.
There's a big standoff at some building, all these groups keep coming in and telling everybody else to drop their weapons. Michael, your guy, is fighting his way out. A chopper (helicopter) appears and you're f*cked, but then then you're PROMPTED TO SWITCH TO THE GUY WHO IS PISSED OFF AT YOU and he snipes the chopper (helicopter) pilot. "You can't die yet Mikey, we got one last job to do"

I started replaying Okami again and I wish you could draw the sun before the game prompted you to.
The game comments on it if you try it but they even state it's a power you've had from the start so that riles my autism a bit.

HOWEVER I thought it was pretty clever that Sunrise being Ammy's innate skill is used to allow you go full goddess-mode to beat your other brush skills out of Yami though

they actually had that in Phantasy Star 3.

Basically at the start of the game, you sell all your shit, buy an item that escapes from dungeons, and when you get thrown into jail and use it this happens.

Melee attacks that are more than just elbows, knives, or generic gun bashes in shooting games.

Don't give a fuck what anyone says about Resident Evil 4,5,6 and/or Army of Two, but it's so incredibly satisfying to scoop slam a mother fucker into the concrete. Something about throwing a heavy straight punch with Gorrilla Redfield. Something about using Huang Gai's musou in DW7/8 and he picks a faggot up, tosses them like 10 feet in the air, then jumps up and catches them and does a spinning piledriver that buries them in the ground.


"Realistic" stuff is great and I love it. Over the top melee moves are fantastic and it just makes me FEEL good. Anything other than generic knives/bash attacks.


Honorable mentions, Halo Reach back assassinations could be a quick and simple back slap insta kill, or your could hold the melee button down and do a flashy one-hit kill that had a flair like a jumping elbow drop or a backstab and toss. Battlefield 3/4 have the knife from behind assassinations/dog tag rip that just feels good to pull off. And fucking Titanfall, for the massive flop it was, is incredibly satisfying to run up behind some dumb nig and twist his head around.

I'm going to ruin this fight for you.

Just press in the direction of Sam every time you attack and you'll accidentally parry almost all of his moves because he only has like one un-parryable attack and it's slow as fuck, and he's aggressive enough that he'll hit every parry window rather than causing you to miss-time one and be punished for it.

I thought it was cool. Easily implemented too, they just stayed away from you until their numbers hit a certain limit and then bumrushed you. The groups kept on getting larger and larger, and the time spent exploring without battles got longer as well. It was all worth it when hundreds of them suddenly pour into your sight range in a neverending wave for your to massacre. Well implemented difficulty spike I'd say.

SaGa Frontier has Blue and his twin brother Rouge.

Blue's quest is basically to become the strongest mage ever, and part of that is to kill Rouge since their power is essentially split in two. Rouge himself is a recruitable secondary character in all the other characters story.

During Blue's story, if you somehow lose the boss fight vs Rouge the game doesn't end; you simply continue the game as Rouge since the two have merged.

But that's my real opinion. I hate, HATE, when the MC loses. But somehow manages to survive by luck. It's shitty writing. They can't figure out how to get the MC out of a bad situation. So they just write some random occurrence to come in and save him.

What if its not "randomly written"?

What if they did this but you had to stay alive for an unspecified amount of time before the "hey we're here to save you" cutscene played?

>>280728150
That's fine. Because a certain amount of luck is allowed. But not that stupid blind luck. Plus, the MC is active in preventing his own death. Also, if the MC has people who are motivated to save him/her, then it's kind of their making. Since they've forged the relationships with the people who are saving them.

>>280728170
You can lose a situation, but figure out how to spare your own life by escaping, retreating, or diverting. There's nothing wrong with having lost. What's wrong is when there was no way you weren't going to die. Then suddenly a magical occurrence happens, and you're saved. It's such bullshit.
