For a reference of direct and indirect attitude indicator, see How is a confusion possible between Western and Russian Attitude Indicators?, and https://www.skybrary.aero/index.php/Western_and_Russian_Artificial_Horizon_Formats.
Direct (Western) attitude indicators can be made to work without tumbling, or even made into a "Navball" that also displays directional information:
See the attitude indicator at the center, Source, and Source. Or alternatively, look at Kerbal Space Program's navball.
Is the same thing possible with the indirect style indicator? If one plays DCS, he or she should know that this style of indicator would always tumble when maneuvering pass 90 degrees above horizon, even though the gyro has no gimbal limit.
This is understandable, because otherwise the indicator must display the horizon upside down... or am I missing something? Is there another way I missed which can get around this issue, or is indirect attitude indicators not capable of representing full 3D orientation, like a navball can?
