Finishers refers to a special kill attack in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. Finishers are special actions that allow the player a flashy finale to their combat encounter, and vary depending on the action executed.
Finishers in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice
- Plunging attacks have a special takedown animation
- Stealth backstabs have a special animation
- A finishing move on an enemy with depleted posture triggers a special animation
- Bosses have small diamonds above their health bar to show how many Finishers must be performed on them to kill them. As a Finisher move is completed, a diamond disappears and the Boss's health bar replenishes, until there are no more diamonds and the boss is on his last health bar. (Note: This may change at launch and is a placeholder mechanic for the demos).
