Invasion-percolation observables which should scale with exponents interrelated through scaling and hyperscaling hypotheses are investigated. Evidence is presented that the hyperscaling relation between, the spatial dimension, and the fractal dimension breaks down at the defender threshold. Thus an independent exponent must be introduced to describe the scaling of the finite-defender-cluster distribution.
