Hyper Armor

When performing certain attacks with specific weapons, you will receive Hyper Armor during a portion of the attack animation that is protected by a hidden health meter (Poise Health) that can be increased with the Poise stat. If an opponent does enough Poise damage to you during Hyper Armor is active they may stagger you.12
