Stamina is an in-game feature of Dead Island. It can affect the Hero if they: sprint for too long, swing a weapon too much or jump or dodge attacks too much. It is indicated by a blue bar on the screen that depletes when one of the actions mentioned are performed. If the bar depletes the Hero will be winded momentarily whilst they catch their breath back. Also, if the bar is depleted and the Hero is attacked by an enemy they would be knocked down, similar to the punch of a Thug or being rammed by a Ram.
