When Siegfried willingly reclaimed Soul Edge after killing the maddened court jester Isuka, he gave his mind & soul to the weapon, transforming into a frightening demonic warrior called Nightmare. With much of its power restored, Soul Edge also transformed with him, once again revealing the eyeballs it once had.
This form has made two cameos. In Soulcalibur II, it appears as two of Nightmare’s weapons, the first being his default weapon, and the second is a slightly larger form labeled as Soul Edge (Growth). And in Soulcalibur III, it again appears as one of Nightmare’s weapons.
