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Untargetability refers to units in a state where they are no longer valid targets for Aria of Perseverance.png aura, Leap Strike.png unit-targeted, Electrical Surge.png auto-targeted, Sear.png direction-targeted and Eye of Destruction.png location-targeted effects, including those coming from basic attacks, abilities, summoner spells, item effects, item actives, and runes. Becoming untargetable is not a form of Cosmic Radiance.png invulnerability, and units will still suffer the effects of debuffs that have already been applied (unless it requires the unit to be targetable), including Blaze.png DoTs, Focused Resolve.png tethers, and delayed effects such as Death Mark Death Mark, Sleepy Trouble Bubble Sleepy Trouble Bubble, and Time Bomb Time Bomb. All units are untargetable at the end of a match.

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 acquire a new target if their target becomes untargetable (also known as "dropping aggro"). Some Excessive Force 2.png uncancelable basic attacks will not cancel if their target becomes untargetable during their windups and will bypass the status effect (i.e. Blitzcrank's Blitzcrank's Power Fist Power Fist will still affect a target that becomes untargetable in the period of its windup).

The telegraph from Karthus' Karthus' Requiem Requiem will be placed on untargetable enemies, although the damage itself is classified as an auto-targeted effect that occurs at the end of the channel time.

The following effects are exceptions and can affect a unit even through untargetability:
