Critical Moves

Critical Finish

Soul Drinker: Night Raven uppercuts his opponent in the air and slams Soul Edge (Fused) into the floor and a red energy sphere surrounds him. The opponent falls down, is drawn into the sphere momentarily and then is launched out of it. This move drains the opponent's soul into Soul Edge (Fused).


Soul Edge (Fused)

The form of a sweihänder after merging with half of the Edge sword fragments and recovering a great deal of its former power. While it is not yet complete, it already radiates a continuous aura of abominable evil energy, as if to boast its power to the world. A normal human being could not likely grip its hilt for long.


Lost Cathedral - Ruin (SCIII)

The clash between John and Night Raven in this cathedral of light and darkness the terrible clash destroyed the cathedral itself. The energy released by Darkness caused the power of the earth to awaken. Billowing clouds of steam began to rise from the grounds of this palace built upon the nexus of the world's spiritual energy lines. The pure light took on an evil glow and began to twist the hearts of men. The pure water swirled violently and became muddy, releasing the odor of death. This once holy place was turned into a violent land ruled by terror...
