Unstoppable basic attack

Some abilities grant an unstoppable basic attack. Unlike normal basic attacks and similar to the cast time of a spell, the windup of these cannot be Silence icon interrupted by any effect other than Death death and Silence icon polymorph, by neither the user themselves nor any status effect. For example, using Flash Flash or going into Stasis icon stasis (i.e Zhonya's Hourglass item Zhonya's Hourglass, Guardian Angel item Guardian Angel) during the attack's windup will cancel the animation but the attack will still land. They can also hit through Twilight Shroud old2 invisibility. Some of them even bypass Playful untargetability. If the attack doesn't lock out other abilities, they may be used normally, and the basic attack will hit during the ability cast.

All tip data templates use the same parameter.

Retrieval of data items

{{data Unstoppable basic attack|pst2|interrupts}}, using parameter selection template Template:Pst2, gives the parameter interrupts, etc.

For retrieval of more data items it is more efficient to prepare a template for that, to be used as follows:

{{data Unstoppable basic attack|template name|..|..|..|..}}

so that this data template needs to be called only once.[1] The default template is Template:Tip data, producing this page.

The four parameters are optional, they are passed on to the prepared template as parameters 2-5.

A parameter being undefined or empty typically means the same, see below. {{data ..|pst2|..}} gives the empty string and the text "{{{..}}}", respectively. Therefore, an application checking the parameter has to check both. Checking whether a result is equal to e.g. the text "{{{popinc}}}" cannot be done directly with #ifeq in a template which itself has also a parameter with that name, because if that is defined, there would be a comparison with the value instead of the text itself. Instead, it can be checked whether the first character of the result is "{", e.g.: {{#ifeq:{{padleft:|1|{{data {{{continent}}}|pst2|popinc}}}}|{|..|..}}. Until here the documentation is automatically generated by Template:Tip data.
