The first video game about Opponent health display was released on December 1984.

2K Games, Ubisoft and Capcom has published most of these games

Usually this is in form of health bar, numeric display, or simple text (e.g. "healthy", "slightly injured", "moderately hurt", etc.).

Possibly not very useful in vs fighting games as this is the norm in them. Not useful if limited to boss fights where it's usually known as "boss meter" or similar.

If this is limited to bosses, use boss meter instead.
