This is when you need to go all in. During Revenge Mode, your attacks will become unblockable and stamina will stop being a problem because of the Revenge Mode.

This is one of the best tools at your disposal against enemies who are good at defending and blocking. This attack basically allows you to charge at an enemy, break his/her defense, and leave him/her vulnerable for subsequent attacks.
