In-Game Description

By reflecting upon his memories, Wolf can perform a series of one-on-one battles with extraordinary foes he has defeated in the past.

Defeat at any point will result in a failed attempt, returning Wolf to reality.

During reflection, Wolf's attack power is not tied to his strength in the real world, and Quick Items and Spirit Emblems used will be replenished upon returning to reality.

Overview

Gauntlettut1.png

Upon completing any ending for the first time during a playthrough, Gauntlet of Strength will become available at any Sculptor's Idol.

A Gauntlet of Strength is a series of consecutive battles against the memories of previously defeated bosses.

During these fights, Wolf's Attack Power is set automatically and any item used is reset at the end of the Gauntlet.

Defeating bosses here won't award Sekiro with any Experience or Sen or, with the exception of the final boss of every Gauntlet, Memory.

After every boss, except the last one, is defeated a Sculptor's Idol will appear with the following options:

  • Rest
  • Purchase Spirit Emblems
  • Battle next extraordinary foe
  • Quit battle

Dying or choosing to "Quit battle" or "Quit game" will kick Wolf out of the Gauntlet, deleting any progress, and back to the last Sculptor's Idol he interacted with.

There are four Gauntlets of Strength:
