* Bosses in ''VideoGame/DoubleDragonNeon'' flash orange when damaged and rapidly flash when low on health. [[BigBad Skullmageddon]] even references this in one of his pause menu lines.



* Bosses and some other things with multiple hitpoints seem to blink white in 2D ''SonicTheHedgehog'' games.
** Any fight with Robotnik changes his sprite, making him look directly at the player, mouth open screaming with a more frayed mustache upon being hit.

In many video games, enemies that don't die from one hit will blink a different colour when damaged. Most of the time, it tends to be white, although it may come in different variants, like red. This particular effect was chosen because it is achieved with a simple PaletteSwap, a cheap operation for early video hardware.

hardware.[[note]]Using palette swap means that there cannot be more than one such enemy on screen at a time (or they'll flicker, too) or the other ones must use other entires in the palette table (which is problematic due to its very limited size). That's why it's virtually always reserved for bosses and/or the player character.[[/note]]
