Proximity Guard

Technical Definition-The mechanic in games without a block button that causes a character to attempt to block a move if the hitbox is close to them even if the move would not connect with the their hurtbox.

In Other Words-"Be careful, man. It almost hit me that time!"
"Goldberg, you're the goalie. It's supposed to hit you."
"Does that sound stupid to anyone else?"
