Fizz Fizz being untargetable while using Playful Playful.

The health bar usually has a translucent appearance to indicate the untargetable status. Otherwise, it is invisible.

Untargetability refers to units in a state where they are no longer valid targets for Sona Aria of Perseverance.png aura, Jax Leap Strike.png unit-targeted, Kennen Electrical Surge.png auto-targeted, Brand Sear.png direction-targeted and Xerath Eye of Destruction.png location-targeted effects, including those sourced by basic attacks, abilities, summoner spells, item effects, item actives, and runes. All units become untargetable at the end of a match.

Effects that have already been applied, such as buffs or debuffs, are not invalidated by untargetability. Notable examples include Brand Blaze.png damage over time, Karma Focused Resolve.png tethers, and delayed abilities such as Death Mark Death Mark, Sleepy Trouble Bubble Sleepy Trouble Bubble, and Time Bomb Time Bomb.

The act of becoming untargetable will also interrupt any effects that have already acquired the unit as a target, such as target commands, and most untargetabilities will additionally Bullet strikethrough.png destroy all incoming targeted Projectile.png projectiles (e.g. Ace in the Hole Ace in the Hole, Bouncing Blade Bouncing Blade, Frostbite Frostbite, turret shots). Non-champion units (e.g. Turret icon.png turrets, Minion icon.png minions, Monster icon.png monsters) will lose aggro if their target becomes untargetable.

The targeting of some effects that haven't applied yet is not invalidated by untargetability. Click "Expand" for the list of them.

This list may be incomplete.

A select few basic attacks that are Vi Relentless Force 2.png uncancelable will complete and apply their effects even if the target becomes untargetable during the attack windup.
