Untargetability refers to units in a state where targeted abilities such as Rammus Rammus' Frenzying Taunt.png Puncturing Taunt and LeBlanc LeBlanc's Shatter Orb.png Shatter Orb cannot be cast on the unit. Nontargeted spells such as Karthus Karthus' Requiem.png Requiem will also have no effect, an exception being Soraka Soraka's Wish.png Wish. Additionally, they cannot be targeted by auto attacks.


Game removal

  • Kalista Kalista's Fate's Call.png Fate's Call completely removes her The Black Spear item.png Oathsworn ally from the game for 4 seconds or until the ally dashes to a position, whichever comes first.
  • Shaco Shaco's Hallucinate.png Hallucinate completely removes him from the game for a short time before the clone spawns. This can dodge everything, including area of effect attacks, damage over time, and ability procs. Leashes continue attached to him after he clones.

Complete invulnerability

These break all forms of leashes, make the unit untargetable, and provide immunity to all DoT effects. DoTs continue to deal damage once the invulnerability ends if they have not expired yet, they are not cleansed.

  • Ekko Ekko's Chronobreak.png Chronobreak makes him untargetable for 0.5 seconds while channeling back to where he was 4 seconds ago.
  • Kled Kled's Skaarl the Cowardly Lizard.png Skaarl the Cowardly Lizard briefly makes him untargetable when he dismounts.
  • Sion Sion's Glory in Death.png Glory in Death briefly makes him untargetable upon taking fatal damage. He then reanimates and becomes targetable for the remaining duration of the ability.
  • If a champion dies, they will be untargetable, an exception being Sion Sion.


Champions in Stasis icon stasis are both untargetable and invulnerable.

Partial invulnerability

Projectiles fired before the untargetability starts will have no effect. They will still take damage over time, such as from Ignite.png Ignite and Malzahar Malzahar's Malefic Visions.png Malefic Visions, and will not break leashes such as Fiddlesticks Fiddlesticks' Drain.png Drain and Morgana Morgana's Soul Shackles.png Soul Shackles. They will not be damaged by delayed abilities such as Zilean Zilean's Time Bomb.png Time Bomb and Fizz Fizz's Chum the Waters.png Chum the Waters, but will be damaged by Vladimir Vladimir's Hemoplague.png Hemoplague and Zed Zed's Death Mark.png Death Mark.


Projectiles (basic attacks or abilities) that are mid-flight when the character starts dashing will hit when the dash completes. They still take damage over time while untargetable.


  • All turrets are untargetable while a lower tier turret in that lane remains standing.
    • Destroying any inhibitor makes the nexus turrets targetable while one remains destroyed.
  • An inhibitor is untargetable while a turret remains standing in front (Allied Azir Azir's Shurima's Legacy.png Disc of the Sun counts).
  • The nexus is only targetable while both its turrets as well as at least one inhibitor are destroyed.
  • The Nexus Obelisk is always untargetable.

Note: The Nexus Obelisk will not target untargetable units, despite otherwise ignoring damage invulnerability.

Note 2: All turrets will not select a new target if their current target becomes untargetable, but will not fire at it either.
