Sifu guide: how to unlock each talisman and the secret ending


How to unlock each talisman

The five talismans, which are: Wood, fire, water, metal and soil can only be unlocked by fighting each of the bosses and killing them first.

So you essentially have to beat the game twice to get each talisman because then you have to pull through each boss to save them instead of killing them.

You save them by entering the fight and going through their first phase as you normally would. During the second phase, focus only on breaking their structure and not killing them.

This means using parry as your main defense, while attacking briefly to further break through their structure. If you break their structure the first time, don’t go for the removal.

They will recover and you will need to break through their structure again to activate the option to save them. This is how you unlock the first four talismans when you fight the boss at the end of each stage.

How to unlock the secret ending

Unlock the Secret Ending and the soil talisman is just a slightly different topic because you have one last obstacle that doesn’t appear anywhere else in the game.

When you realign to The Sanctuary, fight Yang again and complete his first phase. Then break its structure twice to activate the reserve option.

Once you do this, you’ll activate a third phase of the boss fight. No other battle has a third stage, but thankfully you aren’t expected to have a full health bar for it.

In this phase there is no question of dying or aging, you and Yang only have structure meters. Break its structure a third time and this time go for the removal.

Yang is spared in the cutscene that follows, and you’ve obtained the secret ending and the fifth and final talisman.
