Description: A giant scythe wielded by Death. Thanatos is the personification of death in Greek mythology. This soul-harvesting weapon could indeed be described as death incarnate. It was originally designed to be used by the angel of death, who had no reason to fear injury, and thus is not constructed to provide any defense.
- Despite Thanatos' description depicting it as having no defense, the weapon in-game has increased defense.
- It did not return in Soulcalibur III, although Zasalamel's variant of The Ancient resembles it.
- The BGM for battling Algol at the peak of the Tower of Lost Souls in Soulcalibur IV is titled Thanatos.
