Focus is an ability where Alice Liddell locks onto a specific enemy to attack or dodge. She will immediately be on her stance regardless of the enemy's presence. If an enemy is around, using focus will turn the transparent arrow yellow and all of Alice's attacks will be directed towards the foe.
When Alice is focused, she can perform succeeding combos on the targeted enemy, dodge its attacks, or circle around it. Focus mode is indicated by the appearance of the top and bottom frames. Her health will also appear, as well as the icons of her ranged weapons, to keep the player updated with the current state of Alice's health, the current ranged weapon in use, and if the ranged weapon is close to overheating.
