It can also refer to a power wielded by characters that generates sparks, is conductive to metal surfaces, forks or branches, and is often blue in color.
An enemy that uses a spell or a skill to multiply and add another enemy to fight
Sometimes, enemies will explode (usually when shot at) and will cause damage to the player.
A powerful release of energy. This energy is usually expelled in all directions very quickly, typically giving off orange or red flames.
Scarring over the eye. Used by game developers to make a character appear more rugged and 'badass'.

In games, fire can be an obstacle, a tool, a weapon, or a solution. Just don't play with it...unless you really want to.
Cold-blooded aquatic animals that have scales and breathe through gills.
Insects of the order Diptera, Flies (sing. Fly) are
common household pests. The Housefly is considered one of the most widely distributed insects.
Water that defies gravity by being suspended in the air.
Enemies that prefer to keep a distance to the ground, and swoop down occasionally to do some damage.
Foreshadowing is a plot device that allows the creators to leave subtle (or not-so-subtle) hints about future events in the game.
A frog is a small and usually green amphibian that can swim, hop, and ribbit. Sadly, most of them aren't princes.
These spooky entities are the spirits of the dead, returned from beyond their graves for generally sinister purposes. There's generally about even odds whether a particular ghost will be helpful or malevolent towards the living, but some ghosts just want to be left alone entirely.
A fluffy rodent often kept as a pet.
A heads-up display is a graphical overlay of vital information used in most modern games.
More effective than any hospital. These games let you heal damage; ranging from a black eye to a gunshot wound, just by having a snack.

Frozen water. Ice can be slippery and it can be fun for ice skating.

Imps are either fairy-like or lesser demonic creatures and are commonly encountered enemies in games. In Doom, they shoot fireballs at the player.
A concept in a game where the playable character can't run out of ammo, and doesn't need to pick up/buy ammo. In some cases, you still have to reload your weapon, but you will still have an endless amount of magazines.
A situation where the player-controlled character loses their life immediately. The quickness of that demise is often a stark departure from the balance of power, and sometimes the rules, established by the developers during the rest of the game.
Whether it be a close up shotgun blast, far away sniper rifle, explosive, or backstab, the "one hit kill" is a popular kill strategy. Usually hard to master and even harder to avoid, the instant kill is loved and hated by gamers everywhere.
Take an item and throw it at the enemy.
Jellyfish are ocean dwelling animals with a mushroom like top and tentacle like cilia on the bottom. They can be translucent or transparent.
Hopping Chinese vampires that suck life force.

A male fairy found in Irish mythology.
The act of granting freedom to prisoners or subjugated NPCs.
