Sifu‘s big unique selling point when it comes to a brawler is its ageing mechanic, which determines how much health you have and how much damage you can deal with. This ageing mechanic has a whole load of intricacies as to how it works, so it can be hard to get your head around it before you reach the Sifu max age.
Age doesn’t simply work by increasing by one each time you die instead takes into account how many high-level enemies you have killed up until now and also how many total deaths you have accumulated. All of this affects your age, but there is a maximum age limit in Sifu, and passing this max-age will end your game completely.

What is the max age in Sifu?
Sifu’s max age is 70. Once you hit this or your death counter takes you past 70, you will be given one last chance to try and beat whatever boss or level you are playing, before the game resets.
Now, there are skills you can buy to make your runs easier to avoid hitting this max age, and we have some of Sifu’s best skills highlighted for you.
However, you can also avoid reaching this maximum age by killing enemies and bosses to lower your death counter and collecting rewards from one of the many Shrine locations in Sifu. But, not all of the rewards are worth grabbing so if you do pursue them, check out some of the best shrine rewards in Sifu to ensure you are making the correct choices.
