* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII'' has RPG versions of this in the form of the Hero and Holy War items, which make one character and the party invincible for a limited time repsectively. They, like Rinoa's "Invincible Moon" LimitBreak (which had a party-wide effect,) had the ''slight'' drawback that they truly made you impervious to everything... including buffs like Haste, Double/Triple, Aura, and Wall. Even worse than that, the invincibility effect effectively increased your HP, not literally, but for the purposes of figuring out when you could use your limit break (which only appeared when HP was low). So if you have 1 HP, you should get a limit break about 75% of the time, but if you're invincible, it only shows up maybe 25% of the time.

* ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' has a number of them:
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' gives Aeris two LimitBreak moves that can provide temporary invincibility to the whole party. [[AwesomeButTemporary Without grinding her Limit Breaks out early on, though, a player might only get to use them once or twice.]]

Lesser "Trial" versions of the time, items are also available, [[GoodBadBugs which work exactly as well as the originals]].
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX2'' allows acquiring exactly ''one'' Hero Drink per run, which grants this status to one party member,
but if you're invincible, it only shows up maybe 25% of must be stolen from the time.FinalBoss. The Alchemist dressphere's Mix ability can create Miracle Drinks, which have the same effect on the entire party, but require an item gotten from bribing a BonusBoss. The UpdatedRerelease adds the Psychic dressphere, which can learn an ability to provide the user with the same effect as a Hero Drink.

* The invulnerability in Namco games ''BattleCity'' and its sequel ''Tank Force'' doesn't provide the complete protection. Even though helmet/shield power-up grants invulnerability to the player, it's still possible to get game over due to [[AllYourBaseAreBelongToUs the base still being vulnerable]]. Of course, there's a shovel/fortification powerup to protect the base too.

* ''Videogame/CrashTeamRacing'' and other Crash Bandicoot racing games has the Aku Aku/Uka Uka masks, which function just like the Mario Kart Super Star. Which mask you get depends on what characters you choose (heroic characters like Crash and Coco get Aku Aku while villains like Cortex and Tiny get Uka Uka).

** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSpiritTracks'' has [[spoiler:Tears of Light in the Dark Realm. Pick these up in your train, and enjoy the ''invincibility, super speed, and TouchOfDeath on the bomb trains that oh-so have been asking for being knocked right off of the tracks''!]]

* In ''[[http://disney.go.com/games/play3/?content=2006061 Fix-It Felix Jr.]]'', sometimes the building inhabitants will leave you a [[PowerUpFood pie]]. Eat it and Felix will become invincible for a short time (indicated by his hat flashing). Not only will you be unaffected by the birds that fly by and the debris that Film/WreckItRalph rains upon you, but you can also repair the broken windows more quickly (two window panes are fixed at once, and Felix spends less time hammering away). (In an earlier "Beta Code" version of the game, the pies only restore lives you lost.)

* ''VideoGame/{{Blood}}'' also has an invulnerability power-up, the Death Mask. Annoyingly, due to a programmer oversight, you couldn't tell when its effect ended.

There's also the [[AttackReflector Reflective Shots]] powerup which not only protects you from enemy attacks, but reflects the damage at the attackers.

* Another shooter example: the Horned Mask in ''VideoGame/{{Blood}}'', granting you invulnerability. (Annoyingly, due to a programmer oversight, you couldn't tell when its effect ended.)

* The Dash powerup in ''VideoGame/BlenderBros'' lets you dash forward invincibly. You can find it lying around levels, but the [[{{Mons}} Mini Bro]] Spish lets you do it at any time. Well, except for the cooldown period.
