— John


John is considered good by many due to his action and talking. He is an expect of war and show no mercy to opponets that insults his father. He values all life as he asks his foes if the need a break, but will not hesitate to kill when protecting the innocent or his loved ones. In soul calibur III he was calm, brave and care about others. In Soulcalibur IV he is still calm, brave and care about others, he also seems to speak to his opponets as a teacher as he says unimpressive or try harder. Overall he is a good aligned character.

Fighting style

John's fighting style is the same as Siegfried's & Edgemaster. See their pages for more information

Critical Moves

Critical Edge

Just like his fighting style, John's critical edge is the critical edge of the character that he mimics; however he will always say the same quotes.

Critical Finish

Sancti iustitia John uses his sword to knock the opponent in the air and brings them down. raising his sword to the air as his ancestors send there powers to his sword Alma. As the opponent stands up, he slashes his blade through them vertically, sending crystals everywhere as the opponent drops dead, consumed by blue flames.

Unused Critical Finish

Sancti Ira John swings Anima thrice before hitting his opponet head with Anima's hilt. John then activate his spirit form and flies up to the air. John raises Anima up to the air and gets it by a light which transforms Alma into the Calibur. John dives towards his opponet with his sword in the front and impales him/her in the heart killing them. John pulls out Anima from the body and sighs.



A zweihänder found in his father grave Also know as the king sword. While Anima looks similar to faust, it is actually a completely different sword; as it was passed down the Johnathans family for generations. It's first wielder Johnathan The First had sealed a little great power within it known as the Calibur which only he was able to summon; but john eventually discovered he was able to unleash this great power as well. As the power is unleashed, the sword begins to glow brightly and transforms into a crystal sword version of it self (though it's hardly noticeable due to the bright light that engulfs the sword). Once it has transformed, a single blow will kill the foe with an explosion of crystals and blue flames, it then powers down and transforms back into Anima.


Edgebur is the form that the Edge and the Calibur took when they were bonded together. This took place after John defeated Emilo Deaman and John carries them with him in Soulcalibur V.


John's hand made Sword and his training sword during he time in Grandall Empire. Although it looks like Siegfried's requiem in Soulcalibur III it is a different sword. it was destroyed under the war. it was later found by john's soldier who took it back to the castle, repair it and gave it to Johan. John sealed a tiny bit of the Calibur powers in it so his son Johan could unleashed the power as well. In SCIII-IV john uses fera in his secondary costumes


A sweihänder forged by John himself it serves as john secondary weapon in SCV

the Calibur

The first spirit sword created by the Caliburs which one-fifth of the power is sealed within Anima which only Johnathan and John could released it. The sword was created of peace, love and understanding .the Calibur split into fragments from the sword around the world. The Calibur was created between the 10th century and 11th century to grant good wishes and to combat the Edge. Later John search for the fragments. In SCV it becomes Johan secondary weapon.


Lost Cathedral (SCIII)

It resembles many others, yet is like nothing else. A magnificent palace of water that seems to contain every form of architecture known to Europe. No one knows who made it, or where it is located. However, it is said that only those with a strong will and a willingness to bet their own lives can reach it. The great volume of water that flows through it is always circulating and pure, and it is said that it cleanses those who come here to pray. John seeks a showdown with Night Raven will this holy palace of water be the end of both their journeys?

Ostrheinsburg Castle Throne Room (SCIV)

The Ostrheinsburg Castle Throne Room serves as a stage for John in SCIV Notable features include a chasm at one end of the room as well as a line of knights who serve as a wall. These knights actually move forward over the course of the battle, shrinking the stage area a bit. it also serves as John's throne room during SCIV.

Free Imperial City Center (SCV)

The Free Imperial City is located in the territory of the Holy Roman Empire.The sound of weapons clashing break the peace, people are turning their heads in fear and curiosity.The ring is enclosed by several fences of different heights, some of which are breakable. Ring-outs are possible to three sides of the stage It serves as John stage in SCV and as the city center in Almarian Kingdom
