The Style Meter, also known as the S-Meter, is used to measure how much Style you’ve accumulated. The higher your Style, the more damage you’ll do.
Style is gained by landing various attacks on the enemy. Style is lost when your character is struck by an attack. Style is also lost if you hit the enemy with the same attack three or more times in a row, so make sure to switch up your attacks to build Style.
While most attacks damage totals are affected by Style, not all are. Some attacks deal fixed damage and are unaffected by Style. Some Rival attacks are also capable to robbing you of your Style!
Make sure to keep an eye on your Style. High Style is high success!
