Added DiffLines:

* ''Franchise/JakAndDaxter'':
** Averted in [[VideoGame/JakAndDaxterThePrecursorLegacy first game]]. Taking hit while on vehicle damages you, though inexplicably the Zoomer is destroyed/Flut Flut faints if ''Jak's'' health decreases to zero.
** Played straight in ''Videogame/JakIIRenegade''. Made jarring by the fact it applies even for a type of vehicle that is quite similar to the one in the first game. This goes both ways though, because if you activate Invulnerability cheat from menu the vehicle still can be destroyed and in case of some vehicles it still means an instant Game Over, which is especially painful for one certain mission at Drill Platform on Hero Mode.
** Played straight in ''Videogame/Jak3Wastelander'', but now Invulnerability also applies to dune buggies, thankfully.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}'', taking out D.Va requires the enemy to first destroy her hulking MiniMecha, and then deal with the fast-moving, armed pilot herself. SnipingTheCockpit does extra damage ''to the mech'', equivalent to a headshot, but doesn't reduce the pilot's health at all; she always gets out at full health.

* Fully [[AvertedTrope averted]] in ''[[VideoGame/{{Driver}} Driv3r]]''. Crashing into things damages you. It's entirely possible to kill yourself by crashing into a wall. Or, if you've been shot a couple of times before getting into the car, just by backing into another car trying to get out of a parking space.

** Played straight in ''Videogame/DriverSanFrancisco'' though, due to [[LighterAndSofter the nature]] [[EverybodyLives of the]] [[AdventuresInComaland game world]].

* The TwistedMetal series. Mr. Grimm even manages to ''lose an arm'' when he's damaged on his motorcycle but still goes on. Then again, he is [[spoiler: undead.]]

Added DiffLines:

* Pilots in ''VideoGame/{{Titanfall}}'' are personally invulnerable while in their Titans until the Titan is destroyed ([[DefeatEqualsExplosion killing them instantly]] if they don't eject in time) or they're subject to an enemy Titan's [[CoupDeGrace Termination]] (which kills the Pilot and Titan simultaneously).

Contrast SnipingTheCockpit.

to:

Contrast SnipingTheCockpit. Can be seen as the inverse of ArmoredCoffins, but it's possible for both to be in effect at once.



* Justified in any ''VideoGame/FormulaOne'' game. In RealLife F1, it's probably difficult to seriously injure yourself if you were trying on most modern circuits.
** As demonstrated by Richard Hammond in ''VideoGame/TopGear'', though, it's insanely easy to injure yourself due to exhaustion and the incredible G-forces generated by acceleration, turning, and braking.

* The same applies to the ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' series, although the second game onwards lets people clearly damage and outright destroy vehicles. However, vehicles NEVER explode and become unusable unless the occupants die first.

* The same applies to the ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' series, although the second game onwards lets people clearly damage and outright destroy vehicles. However, ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'':
** From ''VideoGame/HaloReach'' onward,
vehicles NEVER explode have their own pool of health separate from the driver's; by ''VideoGame/Halo5Guardians'', shooting a vehicle will ''only'' hurt the vehicle itself, not the driver (unless you can land a direct shot on his/her body).
** In contrast, your vehicle's heath was closely tied to your own in ''VideoGame/{{Halo 2}}''
and become unusable unless ''VideoGame/{{Halo 3}}''; even if your tank is beat-up and on fire, it'll hold together as long as your shields are still up (inversely, you have a good chance of dying pretty quickly if your shields are already down when you jump into a perfectly undamaged tank).
** The original ''VideoGame/HaloCombatEvolved'' zig-zagged this in a rather strange way: On one hand,
the occupants die first.Ghost and Banshee have their own pool of health and will blow up when said pool runs out. On the other hand, the Warthog and Scorpion are completely indestructible, but shooting them with a sufficiently powerful weapon will directly hurt the driver instead.

* Almost all RTS games follow this rule, for both vehicle crews and units in a transport. ''CompanyOfHeroes'' is a semi-exception, as the various crew members are treated like vehicle subsystems, and if they die the vehicle ability they were responsible for stops working.
