Intangibility

From SmashWiki, the Super Smash Bros. wiki
Kirby successfully avoiding a Teal Coupe in Onett with his sidestep.

Intangibility is a state in which characters will not be hit by attacks. This is different from invincibility because, instead of attacks' damage and knockback simply being canceled, it won't hit at all. For example, a projectile will travel right through them. Intangibility is often attributed to dodges, techs, edge-grabbing, get-up attacks and animations, certain body parts during certain moves, and the start of a shield break. Since the character is not hit, a long-lasting attack (or very short intangibility time) may still hit the character once it ends.

Intangibility's negative aspect is that on the Planet Zebes, Brinstar, and Norfair stages, characters will fall straight through the stage's lower hazard rather than sustaining damage and bouncing back up, possibly causing an otherwise preventable KO. They may occasionally also be KO'd if they are standing on the track on Mute City (SSBM), Port Town Aero Dive or Mute City SNES. In Smash 4, Master Giant's "glowing hands" attack also completely ignores any form of intangibility as well as invincibility (including respawn).

In Super Smash Bros. Melee's debug menu, intangibility is displayed by affected hurtboxes changing from their usual yellow color to a blue color during the intangibility period. A similar feature is present in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's Training Mode via an invincibility toggle, which causes intangible parts of characters to acquire a blue tint.

Trivia[edit]

  • In Ultimate, if one turns on the "Intangibility display" in Training Mode, intangibility will be displayed on Bowser while he is in his helpless state, and it will appear as though he is fully intangible. This is because during his helpless animation, only his shell and torso are tangible, in order to prevent unexpected interactions.
