Sekiro Posture is special gauge is used while in combat, depleted when deflecting incoming attacks from enemies. Both the player character and enemies have posture meters, and Bosses must have their Posture completely depleted for each health bar they possess (mini-bosses as well). Because you can't start damaging the next health bar of a Boss without depleting its Posture, it is advised you aim for Posture instead of trying to just outright kill it.
