Exhibition Mode, or Exhibition Videos, is a mode which features a number of videos of characters from the Soul series and performing "katas" with their weapon of choice. They can be seen in Soulcalibur, Soulcalibur II and Soulcalibur III. Some of the stages in the Soul Calibur kata change depending on the time of day, or year in real life, such as Hwang's stage alternating between day and night. In Soulcalibur II, most of the katas are not set in the character's own profile stage (for example, Maxi's kata takes place in Yun-seong's stage, which he uses more than and whom he shares with the latter); most of these characters even actually share the stages in which their katas take place instead of their own profile stages. Some character's katas are not of their fighting skills, but something else. Examples include: Raphael, who dances; Lizardman, who jumps off a statue in Soulcalibur; Charade, who assembles itself; and Olcadan, who meditates. Some of these katas are identical, such as Kilik and Seong Mi-Na, and Mitsurugi and Yoshimitsu (despite the fact that Mitsurugi and Yoshimitsu don't have the exact same style).
