About the "Goodbye, Mother" quote from Patroklos
Does this mean that his mom, Sophitia, is his final boss in Soul Calibur 5?:D--SarahPaiFan 09:48, June 3, 2011 (UTC)
If so, does that mean that Sophitia's ending in soul calibur 4 might be canon with Algol stopping her. It gets you wondering who's ending is canon in soul calibur IV.
I think Sophitia could really end up being the new Nightmare XD 184.108.40.206 18:29, June 3, 2011 (UTC)
True, and Cassandra being the new Siegfried, since she might be wielding Soul Calibur.:D--SarahPaiFan 23:11, June 4, 2011 (UTC)

Sophitia's Dead according to some Japanese site?
I hope this information is fake. She's only 42 years old.:P
YOU CAN'T BE SERIOUS, NAMCO! Please let this be fake...
It IS fake. It's obvious that she's going to be one of the bosses.:P--SarahPaiFan 00:35, June 9, 2011 (UTC)
I think it's quite possible that she can still be dead and yet still be one of the bosses. Death never stopped Cervantes, after all! Veresordeo 00:38, June 9, 2011 (UTC)
Actually, Patroklos thinks her mother, Sophitia, is dead because she never came back from her journey.:)--SarahPaiFan 00:45, June 9, 2011 (UTC)
I don't know this sounds wierd but an interesting plot point. I still have a wierd feeling she could be the new Nightmare. I can't wait for more info I hope this game will be a masterpiece like SE, SCI, SCII, and SCIII were! Requiem IV 02:53, June 9, 2011 (UTC)
Something tells me that both Sophitia and Pyrrha did not come back home to their family. But I could be wrong...
You would be correct, regarding Pyrrha at least. Hisharu Tago said Pyrrha was kept away and grew up away from her family. As for whether Sophitia came back or not, well, I'm still leaning on my theory... Veresordeo 04:46, June 9, 2011 (UTC)
Either Sophitia is killed before the events of Soul Calibur V or she's the soul edge's new host. btw where's the link to this japanese site that said Sophitia is dead?
She's definitely Soul Edge's new host. I can tell. By the way, they're definitely pulling off a Tekken 5 on Patroklos' storyline.:P--SarahPaiFan 09:06, June 10, 2011 (UTC)
What do you mean Sophitia "died" before the events of Soul Calibur V? Is she like "a playable character" or she is only like "one of a bosses" of Soul Calibur V? I might agree with SarahPaiFan, maybe she is like alive or something. According to the Soul Calibur V page, it said that Sophitia was "murdered" and her husband died from a disease. --Starkitty21 02:53, June 24, 2011 (UTC)
We don't know anything yet. There are several theories, the "Nightmare Now Has Greek Boobs" theory being one of the most popular, but until data is officially confirmed nobody knows for sure. We don't know if she's playable, if she's a boss, if she's an NPC, if she's alive but in hiding, if she got gender reassignment surgery and took Siegfried's place, or if she's perma-dead. Veresordeo 04:12, June 25, 2011 (UTC)
If Sophitia was confirmed as playable, then the story will say that Sophitia broke up with Soul Edge, that I wish to see that, that if Sophitia broke up with Soul Edge and stick with Soul Calibur and follow Siegfried, while she will be no longer a former servent to Nightmare. And if Sophitia is confirmed as deceased, then she will become undead and became a new nightmare because the Soul Edge killed Sophitia which will cause a resurrection into undead and became the new Nightmare or become Nightmare's wife because she was turning into a demon and undead, and she wears purple armor; or one of the crusader resurrects Sophitia and Rothion because Sophitia was murdered by one of the crusader who saids "Sophitia will no longer lived due to Soul Edge," and then later on, she will broke up with Soul Edge and follow Soul Calibur which Sophitia and Rothion wants their children back, which I want to see if she was resurrected by one of the crusader and she broke up with Soul Edge, I mean, I want to see that. MaxfireXSA 19:15, June 31, 2011 (UTC)
Actually, Sophitia isn't dead. It's just her son, Patroklos' thoughts.:)--SarahPaiFan 02:28, August 1, 2011 (UTC)
What's with deleting all the talk sections?
Not like this page is starting to get overflowed and cluttered. And even if it gets a little long, there's that topic list (that was) at the top to help navigate. And if it gets REALLY long, then it can be archived. I think the topics are great for discussing, as well as offering some previous viewing material for newcomers. Veresordeo 00:26, June 9, 2011 (UTC)
Yeah, sorry about that.:D--SarahPaiFan 00:36, June 9, 2011 (UTC)
All right. Is it cool if I restore the previous sessions, then? Veresordeo 00:51, June 9, 2011 (UTC)
Eh, did it anyway. Restored. Veresordeo 01:10, June 9, 2011 (UTC)
Soul Edge and Soul Calibur blade forms
Im really sure that the both Soul Edge and Soul Calibur are in sizes of the swords that Both Cassandra and Sophitia used so its highly possible that Patroklos will wield Soul Calibur and Sophitia will wield Soul Edge and a final battle will occur with Sophitia being forced to be killed by Patroklos because of the transfomation of Soul Edge and about the guest character Im starting to think that witch Bayonetta will be the one! Tesshu, When The Law Fails to Serve Justice one can buy Justice. 20:37, June 8, 2011 (UTC)
I doubt it. If anything, Cassandra will be wielding Soul Calibur. BTW, I wish her luck saving her big sis'.:D--SarahPaiFan 20:44, June 8, 2011 (UTC)
Yes! Cassandra! I want Her to wield Soul Calibur instead of Patroklos, I totally agree with you in that Sara! I prefer to see Sophitia being saved by Cassandra rather than be killed by her own son! So she will be in the game was the final boss and antagonist much like Siegfried was in Soul Calibur II! Tesshu, When The Law Fails to Serve Justice one can buy Justice. 20:56, June 8, 2011 (UTC)
Well, since Patroklos is wielding Stigma Sword and Arcadia Shield, it's obvious that Cassandra may be the new wielder of Soul Calibur.:D--SarahPaiFan 11:38, June 10, 2011 (UTC)
If the Sisters do make it in the game.
They'll definitely be the sub-boss or final boss for certain characters in the game.--SarahPaiFan 00:09, May 21, 2011 (UTC)
I honestly think Sophitia could end up beign the new Nightmare, though it is just a theory. Also they said in the Famitsu live stream that half the roster will be old characters. Also apperently people have translated that Nightmare has been confirmed. 
I'm probably guessing that Nightmare will be one of the characters that'll be wielding a new weapon.:D--SarahPaiFan 01:11, May 21, 2011 (UTC)
Yeah and probably the reason why Soul Edge is now a short sword. Though it is just a theory but it would be cool if it happens. :)
Daishi did confirm Nightmare would return. It's on his twitter. Tem14 20:54, May 24, 2011 (UTC)Tem14
By 26 characters...
Do they mean not counting the guest and bonus characters?:/--SarahPaiFan 17:16, May 21, 2011 (UTC)
That is an interesting question. In the live stream the said at least 25. Well they already confirmed a guest character but the wierd thing is (don't know if it is on pourpose or mistranslation) they make it seem like there is going to be 1 Special guest. As for the bonus character I guess they should leave it for once they are done with the main roster.
New Character Reveal
Seems Mitsurugi might be the next character to be confirmed: http://www.soulcalibur.com/en_US
It's definitely Mitsurugi. I can tell by the stance.:D--SarahPaiFan 14:45, May 25, 2011 (UTC)
Yep it is! Here is his pic and he looks awesome!: http://img11.hostingpics.net/pics/341987Capture.png
Definitely him. He looks a lot older now. What is he 46? Tem14 06:46, May 26, 2011 (UTC)
Yep. He's 46 now.:D--SarahPaiFan 06:56, May 26, 2011 (UTC)
I was wondering
Can Sophitia wield Soul Edge without getting possessed by it?:/--SarahPaiFan 12:40, May 31, 2011 (UTC)
I don't think so. Everyone that has come into contact with Soul Edge loses themselves to the sword. The only exception has been Algol. But it coul be possible Siegfried was able to resist Soul Edge and break free. Who knows if Sophitia could do the same. Maybe the gods could help? Though Greek gods are known for being jerks. Requiem IV 16:36, May 31, 2011 (UTC)
So, now that Hwang's deconfirmed.....
Who's going to be the successor to either Hwang or Yun-seong?:/--SarahPaiFan 19:55, May 31, 2011 (UTC)
I really hope Hwang has a kid or some sort of succesor that can replace him. It would be cool if he ends up with Mina :D. I also hope Yungseong never shows his face again and if their is a succesor that he is nothing like him. Requiem IV 22:11, May 31, 2011 (UTC)
Exactly. What Yun-seong did/said to Mi-na and Talim was not right at all.:P--SarahPaiFan 22:44, May 31, 2011 (UTC)
Haha yeah! It would be a terrible nightmare and a really bad joke if they made him and Mina or him and Talim have a kid... I honestly don't know what I would do but a side of me would die O.O.
Also just saw the Pyreah pic from 1-up she looks so amaizing and beautiful. Also I am suprised by the colors she uses and that Mitsurugi's hair is grey, lol. I can't wait for more. This game is really getting me excited and lately nothing really has. XD 220.127.116.11 16:25, June 1, 2011 (UTC)
Yep, Pyrrha is cute, just like her mom and aunt. And yeah, that would be a sick joke if either Talim and Mi-na had a child with Yun-seong. Now, don't get me wrong, Yun-seong was fun to use, but as a character, he didn't seem to be a worthy successor to Hwang.:P--SarahPaiFan 17:10, June 1, 2011 (UTC)
Yeah, i hope Hwang returns and Seong Mi-na. However, it may be that they have a child , seeing as even though she views him and Yun Seong as brothers, her father tried to marry her to Hwang.-Minilee 09:20, August 16,2011
New gameplay on Spike TV
There is going to be some gameplay footage tonight at 1am on Spike TV's GTTV. Hopefully they might show us a bit of the gameplay of the 5 revealed characters :D Requiem IV 19:08, June 2, 2011 (UTC)
Sorry. But I can't stay up late. I have to go to work tomorrow.:(--SarahPaiFan 22:30, June 2, 2011 (UTC)
Oh, damn I hadn't though about that. I am free because I just finished my 2nd year of college. I will try my best to find a link of an uploaded version of the segment and post it hear tomorrow. So don't worry. Also something that bothered me why is a video game show being shown at 1 am? >.> Requiem IV 23:31, June 2, 2011 (UTC)
So it appears Soul Charge and Critical Edges are back. The game is so much faster now. Tem14 05:24, June 3, 2011 (UTC)
Yeah Speed, Soul Charge, and Critical Edges!!! This was what I hoped for!!! So far SCV is looking to be amazing!!! I can't wait to see more! Requiem IV 05:28, June 3, 2011 (UTC)
Here is a link for those who missed! Thank the youtube uploader:
Here's an HD link on gametrailers: Veresordeo 05:59, June 3, 2011 (UTC) http://www.gametrailers.com/video/e3-2011-soul-calibur/714560
I watched it live, and it was awesome. I noticed, though, that it was still in the SCIV pre-stage, because they played on two recognizable SCIV stages from what I saw. Also, I never played SE, so what is a Critical Edge? If I remember right, SC is the thing in SCII that you pressed ABY to you, no? A.J. two 06:27, June 3, 2011 (UTC)
Nice. The game kind of reminds me of the previous installment(Soul Calibur 4) mixed in with elements from Virtua Fighter and Soul Edge/Blade.:D--SarahPaiFan 08:31, June 3, 2011 (UTC)
The stages are actually new! One is the Money Pit and the other one the Pirate stage is difrent from SCIV! 18.104.22.168 18:28, June 3, 2011 (UTC)
Possible Final Fantasy Character?
"Daishi Odashima mentioned on his twitter that he would like to add Final Fantasy characters as guest fighters, therefore hinting a possibility for the first time that Final Fantasy characters appears in the upcoming game."
Wich FF Character do you think it could be? I hope to god it is not Cloud or Sephiroth, or any other character from FF7, aside from Tifa. Cloud and Sephiroth, and FF7 in general, are over used and constantly guest staring in SE's other games. And they've already guest stared in the fighting game Ehrgeiz: God Bless the Ring which was made by Namco.
I can only approve of Tifa, due to the fact she is a fist fighter, something this game series could use to add diversity to the list playable characters.
Though I'd, personaly, be happy with a character from one of the games BEFORE FFVII. Someone like Terra from VI, Cecil from IV, or maybe even Firion from FFII, who is a multi-weapon user. Firion would possibly be the best choice, due to being able to use multiple weapons; a sword, axe, bow, staff/magic, dagger, lance, and his fists. That would be very interesting to see implemented into the Soul Calibur V.
Ixbran 06:01, June 4, 2011 (UTC)
Tina/Terra and Firion could be good additions to the roster, as guest characters.:D--SarahPaiFan 23:13, June 4, 2011 (UTC)
I'm not entire sure FF chars will in. Since Daishi tweeted he really wants FF chars in, I'd say that's a reason to not include them. Namco would probably crack down pretty hard if he had let out a hint like that, especially since he said "Just to tell you, the guest character has already been decided. I can’t say anything else because we have deals with the other company". Plus, a lot of the hype train that Square-Enix had has been going down--their games have been doing a lot less successfully in sales as of late, and a lot of fondness people have are for the older games rather than the new ones.
Of course, one could come right out and prove me wrong tomorrow, but for now I'd hazard a shaky "I don't think so". Veresordeo 01:10, June 9, 2011 (UTC)
Well you never know, but I say that there's going to be a FF guest character since the series is so popular. Cloud and Sephiroth would be perfect guest characters since they are two of the most popular FF characters. Yuna.Fan
Lol maybe Daishi left out some information on purpose about the guest characters, so that he could add more "mistery" to the upcoming game. I would love to see Tifa, Cloud and Sephiroth as guest characters since they are the most famous and iconic characters in Final Fantasy franchise and with no doubt my favorites I totally agree with Yuna Fan they would fit perfectly in the Soul Calibur universe. Also Tifa does not use weapons when she fights, a lot of people are requesting in the twitter that they want a hand-to-hand fighter in the upcoming game!
Tesshu When The Law Fails to Serve Justice one can buy Justice. 16:24, July 19, 2011 (UTC)
There won't be Shura in SC5
Shura on Twitter is the most requested by fans for SC5 but was made official that she there won't be! T_T
I think we all know that.:P--SarahPaiFan 14:44, June 5, 2011 (UTC)
And nothing of value was lost. Veresordeo 18:59, June 5, 2011 (UTC)
Why are people still surprised about Shura O.o? Requiem IV 22:20, June 6, 2011 (UTC)
I'm fairly sure there were only two reasons Shura was popular.
And they weren't her swords. - Veresordeo 22:31, June 6, 2011 (UTC)
Haha, yeah you can say that again. But what surprises me is that people were expecting a bonus character to return? I though it was pretty obviouse she wasn't going to return similar to Necrid. Oh well maybe they will be able to make her in the CaS? Requiem IV 22:42, June 6, 2011 (UTC)
Shura is a great and charismatic character and then the dual katana contribute to this. I think that Shura doesn't belong to Bandai Namco like the SC4 other bonus characters, so Namco doesn't have got the copyright for Shura, cenrtainly it is so! Linstella 10:54, June 10, 2011 (UTC)
"Charismatic"? She was THE most generic innuendo-spouting half-naked evil girl ever. She was a total caricature of the current state of Soulcalibur women. I'll admit the dual katanas were pretty cool, but they can pander to that by letting Cervantes have a dual-katana weapon set for created souls.
And you're correct, Bandai doesn't have the copyright for her or any other bonus/guest characters.Veresordeo 17:14, June 10, 2011 (UTC)
Yes my friend She IS a popular character you can clearly see that, Its not because she is beutiful or is half-naked its the inpact and personality that Shura have, sorry to say that but you are terribly wrong, Everyone likes her, and it would be even great if She could have her own moveset! Tesshu, When The Law Fails to Serve Justice one can buy Justice. 19:37, June 10, 2011 (UTC)
I cannot possibly disagree more on every single account. Extensively. Especially the "everyone likes her" part. I'll chalk this up to simply a difference of opinions, though, since arguing it on the talk page would probably be silly. :p - Veresordeo 23:27, June 10, 2011 (UTC)
Wait Shura had a personality? O.o
To be honest I think the only Bonus Character (if he can count as one since his design was done by an artist) that is worthy of returning is Edgemaster. Would be awesome to see him come back along side Olcadan! Plus SCIII hinted on them having a past and they are awesome! :) 22.214.171.124 23:44, June 10, 2011 (UTC)
Shura is great! If SC5 in the had been set in the same period of SC2, SC3 and SC4, I would have like to come back Shura, Ashlotte (she's great too), Hwang, Li Long, Seong Han-Myeong and Edge Master and have been added Bangoo, all as chanonical characters! Linstella 10:34, June 11, 2011 (UTC)
Yeah, right. By the way, I personally hate the mimicry characters because they're lame and are too hard to master.--SarahPaiFan 19:07, June 11, 2011 (UTC)

I bet they are not gonna make her LOOK old. She's probably gonna be ageless and still look good.
Almost certainly Zasalamel will be back too, or al least, I think so! Linstella 10:49, June 10, 2011 (UTC)
It is confirmed by Hisaharu Tago that Ivy will still look 32. It would make sense because she is Cervantes' daughter. Uhh, To be honest, I knew from the beginning that Ivy will be ageless -__-
Oh, that is to bad I was hoping that at least she would look around 40 :( I was really excited to see how gracefully she would have aged. Well there is still Taki! (I hope >.>) Requiem IV 19:18, June 11, 2011 (UTC)
About Pyrrha's current moveset
Did one of the creators say they'll change Pyrrha's fighting style later on in development?:/--SarahPaiFan 22:49, June 10, 2011 (UTC)
Not that I'm aware of. Pyrrha, as far as I can recall, is going to use Sophitia's moves with some minor changes. Patroklos is going to be the really different one. Veresordeo 23:25, June 10, 2011 (UTC)
Well, Pyrrha borrows some of her mother's moves, but not all or most of them.:/--SarahPaiFan 19:10, June 11, 2011 (UTC)
Do you want unlockable characters in SC5?
It would be exciting to play but I think that now unlockable characters are an obsolete thing! What do you think? Linstella 10:24, June 11, 2011 (UTC)
Don't worry. I'm some there are unlockable characters in Soul Calibur 5.:D--SarahPaiFan 19:09, June 11, 2011 (UTC)
It would be pretty cool to have unlockable characters again. Maybe they should do it like SCI did? Like make the main characters unlocked since the start and make the sub characters and bosses as locked till you clear certain story events? Something like that I guess.

From what I heard, Sophitia is linked to Soul Edge. I wonder how her lil sis', Cassandra, will save her with Soul Calibur, unless she finds a way around it.:/126.96.36.199 17:30, June 15, 2011 (UTC)
That's a very popular theory going around, yeah. I'm not so sure it'll be Cassandra that saves her, though. Patroklos is supposedly the heir to the title of the holy warrior, after all. Veresordeo 17:42, June 15, 2011 (UTC)
Well, since Patroklos has Stigma Sword and Arcadia Shield, I suppose Cassandra has Soul Calibur. By the way, Stigma Sword is NOT Soul Calibur and that "Hier to the holy warrior" just means that he's Sophitia's son.:D--SarahPaiFan 20:36, June 15, 2011 (UTC)
Siegfried is Pyrrha's Stepfather!
Siegfried could be Pyrrha's Stepfather I saw a picture in the gallery of Siegfried page and I saw him with Pyrrha!, she appears to be crying and Siegfried appears to be conforting her. That makes sense since she was abducted by Nightmare when she was only a child, Siegfried could have defeated him and saved Her from the hands of the ville-beast and then he left both Soul Calibur and Soul Edge well hidden so anyone could not find these weapons. And after 17 years Siegfried trained and lived with Pyrrha in his homeland, And now they embarked on a new journey for Pyrrha find out who is Her true Family and where she was born! Tesshu, When The Law Fails to Serve Justice one can buy Justice. 19:52, June 22, 2011 (UTC)
Where did you see this? O.o If it is from the galley of the wiki then it is just a screen shot of the Pyrrah "stab and trip over the enemy attack" shown in one of the trailers. Requiem IV 19:57, June 22, 2011 (UTC)
The Storyline makes sense to my friend, Pyrrha is a wanderer much like Siegfried was in Soul Calibur III, and another thing that makes sense is the final battle between Siegfried and Nightmare in Soul Calibur IV. Nightmare might have been defeted and destroyed by Siegfried but the blade, Soul Edge was not, Siegfried could have possibily hidden the blade alongside with Soul Calibur somewhere, where any people could not find! After defeating Nightmare aka Inferno in the process, He saw a very young girl in a cage, Siegfried used his ice based powers from Soul Calibur and he destroyed the cell, saving a younger Pyrrha! from that time on he took the girl on his wing! Tesshu, When The Law Fails to Serve Justice one can buy Justice. 20:09, June 22, 2011 (UTC)
It could make sense but there isn't any proff. So we just have to wait and see what happens. Requiem IV 20:27, June 22, 2011 (UTC)
Yeah, yeah! I known! But admit it, its a beutiful Story, isn'it? Why,we could not give this sugestion to Daishi in his twitter? He could take this in mind! If you have a account and is a follower in his twitter, try to give this idea! Siegfried was allways trying to atone from his past sins, so adopting Pyrrha would be the perfect redemption! Don't you think? Tesshu, When The Law Fails to Serve Justice one can buy Justice. 20:35, June 22, 2011 (UTC)
I actually do agree that it would be good character development; plus it connects Seigfried to Pyrrah and Patrockles. Though I think Mr. Daishi has already comented that he already has the story planned; plus Mr. Tago has said that they are already working on the stories of SCVI and SCVII as well (like a trilogy arc thing).
I do have a Twitter account though to be honest I don't even know if my Tweets arrive to him sometimes. He has never answered any back except that one time he said to ask about the Critical Gauge. I asked him several questions and when he was ansewering the questions I nailed most of them but he never answered me back directly :( . Though I wouldn't mind trying to help you. Requiem IV 20:58, June 22, 2011 (UTC)
Thank you very much! I really apreciate with you could do that man! Try to send a message like this:"It could be possible that Siegfried be Pyrrha's Stepfather in the Storyline of the game?" I really thank you for this kind of "complex" favor! Tesshu, When The Law Fails to Serve Justice one can buy Justice. 21:57, June 22, 2011 (UTC)
I think that's a good idea for Siegfried to be the father-figure for Pyrrha. Dashi should use this idea.
it's almost official: there will be 256 characters in soulcalibur 5!
Daishi said that it is almost official that there will be 256 characters in the next chapter, hooray!188.8.131.52 16:56, June 23, 2011 (UTC)
No, he didn't. Veresordeo 17:55, June 23, 2011 (UTC)
He has never said something like that. All that has been said is that they are trying to at least around put 24 - 26 characters in SCV and the funny comment he said in EGM[i] interview "No more than 50 and no less than 1". Requiem IV 20:15, June 23, 2011 (UTC)
Could this, perhaps, be Xianghua?
This pic () looks a lot like Xianghua, no? So is it her or is it a deal similar to Sophitia and Phyrrha, where she is replaced by a character who looks almost exactly the same? -LeoLab 17:04, June 24, 2011 (UTC)
Yes it is Xianghua. If I remeber correctly that is some old concept art Mr. Daishi shared with us because of someones birthday. Requiem IV 17:15, June 24, 2011 (UTC)
Yes, it's Xianghua art. No, it's not for SCV. Veresordeo 17:17, June 24, 2011 (UTC)

Is it possible that "Character Creation" in SCV???
Are the Custom Characters returns to Soul Calibur or they didn't? --Starkitty21 17:22, July 4, 2011 (UTC)
If I recall correctly in a early interview Mr. Tago confirmed CaS to be coming back to SCV. Though he said that they were going to change some things. If I remeber correctly sort of like revamping the system. I hope they base it of SCIII's CaS or just do something new that offers a lot of liberty in the customizing. As long as the CaS is nothing like SCIV's I think it be great. Requiem IV 00:51, July 5, 2011 (UTC)
I do hope they base it of SCIII with some new things like keeping armor, clothes, masks, etc, etc by itself so you can equip a shirt and breast plate at the same time like how you did in SCIII. also i hope they add weapons from the past and stages. and more voices from SCIII-IV. i hope they make that and it would be great. Johnnthemaster 11:33, July 5, 2011 (UTC)
New character silhouettes.
looks great i wonder who they are. one looks like Raphael or mayby someone with the same style as him and is a vampire. the other one i am not sure since people says it could be Tira, Talim or Taki but i think its a new character but we will now when they are announced at comicon. anyway thanks Veresordeo for these pic.

Bonus games in Soul Calibur V
What do you people think in add an new bonus game with RPG/adventure like style, The players could create their own characters and venture trought the lands of Europe and others places of the world (not a fictional world) and you could meet with the main characters like Siegfried or Mitsurugi and create parties (travel companions) and fight against countless enemies and bosses! The story could also have multiple endings depending in wich path you choose (wield Soul Edge or Soul Calibur),bonus games could add alot of replay value to the game! Tesshu When The Law Fails to Serve Justice one can buy Justice. 03:58, July 15, 2011 (UTC)
I would personally prefer they focus on the core fighting gameplay first over everything else. After that's done, for a singleplayer mode I would prefer something similar to SCII's Weapon Master but with created characters. Trying to create a whole RPG system or anything else would likely be too time-consuming and too risky. Veresordeo 19:18, July 15, 2011 (UTC)
Hey man! And about the team of the game, they are alot o people and It could be possible that a part of the group is making a bonus RPG/adventure style game (Like the konquest mode from Mortal Kombat Deception) or some extra mode, Personally I think that Weapon master mode was not good, otherwise that mode from Soul Calibur III "Chronicles of the Sword" was pretty good. In that mode the player create their own character and their fight alongside with travel companions and you could level up and defeat bosses that mode was great!

I don't know about everyone else but i'd like to see Sora from Kingdom Hearts for the PS3 port of Soulcalibur V, thoughts? 184.108.40.206 19:19, July 15, 2011 (UTC)MKvsKI
Here's my own thoughts on guest characters. I don't think Sora would be that good a fit, mostly because he's way too anime instead of historical-medieval-fantasy. Veresordeo 19:24, July 15, 2011 (UTC)
I see. I know for you, see Sora from Kingdom Hearts and Cloud from Final Fantasy for the PS3 ports of Soulcalibur V, see Alistair from Fable III for the Xbox 360 port of Soulcalibur V. Of course.
A hero of Brightwall from Fable III name Alistair has to be confirmed into Xbox360 exclusive in Soul Calibur V, I mean, I just want my Fable III character name Alistair into Soul Calibur V as a Xbox360 exclusive as a guest character, he's the one who defeated Logan's army and became the king of Albion. I just want to see him in Soul Calibur V, I named him "Alistair" because it fits the name real well with the Hero of Brightwall. -- MaxfireXSA 16:28, July 21, 2011 (UTC)
Don't forget, that Kholin Baston will be confirmed into Soul Calibur V as the Xbox360 Exclusive. Yes, that is my fan character and my character from "The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion". Why? Because he saved Cyrodill from Mythic Dawn, Shivering Isles from The Order, and Knights of the Nine where he bring back the knights of the nine. -- MaxfireXSA 15:42, September 26, 2011 (UTC)
Is it possible that Taki was replaced???
Daishi confirmed an unknown ninja girl. I'm not sure if Taki was replaced by her, or she was also confirmed. -- Starkitty21 01:21, July 15, 2011
It's possible she was replaced or gone into a secondary role. She could be one of the characters that gets a new style as well. For now, I think she's replaced though.Tem14 20:27, July 15, 2011 (UTC)
It's possible. We don't know. Veresordeo 20:33, July 15, 2011 (UTC)
One more character like this and I will resign this game to grave that waits it, because surely this is one of the things most significant things you do to bring a game to that unfortunate place.
ONE OF THE WORST things this game could do is get rid of everyone that we know and love, only to replace them with a carbon copy that is so utterly cheezy, half assed, and down right (for lack of a better word) retarded you can only stare at the design in disbelief.
That is EXACTLY what I have gazed upon, a half assed Taki remake who will not make us forget about Taki, but rather constantly remind us that the REAL Taki is no where to be found in the game. So if this game is about replacing the older generation or introducing new characters or whatever, why would put someone in the game who looks like a anime cliche version of a character from the older series/generation? You might as well just give us Taki, right? This kind of decisions will destroy the whole concept of the game since new replacing old is a major theme.
This type of thing resigns me to the idea that they really don’t want to give us something new, they just wanna repackage old shit, and that simply won’t do. You guys can flame me and say I am an angry fan who hasn’t given the game time to grow , or you can take the time to consider my point, because you’ll probably be saying the same exact shit a couple months from now when your fav character gets replaced (and no Taki is not my favorite ) with a shitty, uninspired, look alike -_-
Goodness, so much anger. You are an angry fan with a knee-jerk reaction, but I won't flame you--just calm the hell down. No, I won't be saying the same thing when my favorite characters that nobody else likes inevitably get replaced. We knew ever since the beginning that most of the cast would be gone, since Daishi said only about half of the much-smaller cast would be returning characters. Why people are acting like it's crucifixion that they DARED to remove their FAVORITE CHARACTER is beyond me.
The fact of the matter is, people hate change. Unless it's something they don't like, in which case of course change it. Me, I'm willing to wait until more info comes out to see how the whole product is, instead of judging one single design of an unnamed, unshown, undisplayed, unplayed, unwritten character. Veresordeo 16:57, July 16, 2011 (UTC)
I agree with you Veresordeo. I'm not a big fan of Taki but I do respect her as cool fighter. The game hasn't even come out yet and people bitching about their favorite character being replaced. I'm still getting the game if they do replaced my favorite character. For God sakes, either get the game or don't get the game once it comes out. I will say this I hate the idea that Ivy will still look the same and never grow old but Taki in 17 years later will a 46 year old woman. Unless they using that bullshit sub-plot of her never growing old like Tekken's Nina and Anna Williams. Who knows?! The little chick could be Taki's daughter or a pupil of her clan. I'm waiting for more info from Dashi.
I will admit here that i really like Taki and she is definately one of my favourites, if she is not included in SCV then at least i hope they give a good story-wise reason not to be present, not like Li-long where they said he is alive and looking for soul edge but not playable. If they say she died or something then that's perfectly fine.-- The better alternative is that both new girl and Taki will appear playable but much like the fighting styles of Raphael-Amy and Sohiptia-Cassandra there will be noticable differences. If new girl is an almost exact copy then think that would be a minor flaw to this game.SandS Hero 20:43, July 16, 2011 (UTC)
i for one commend what they have done, most game companies are too scared to make these kind of changes, and they went foward and did it...Blacklaurel 07:12, July 21, 2011 (UTC)
Unfortunately, after the fans are disappointed, Taki is returning since she is not replaced. -- Starkitty21 08:06, July 27, 2011
About the Coliseum stage in Soul Calibur 5
Could the coliseum be Pyrrha and Patroklos' stage?:D--SarahPaiFan 23:19, July 21, 2011 (UTC)
We want Weapon Creation, Fate of the Chosen, and Tag Team Mode
Please Namco, we want Weapon creation in Soul Calibur V, so we can create weapons from scratch, so there can be over 1000 weapon schematics to choose from in order to create weapons using ores and enchantments. That means, we finished creating a weapon, it will be uploaded into a weapon slot, so the character you've created will choose the weapons according to the weapon slot.
We want tag-team battle that will be 2-vs-2 like what they did to Mortal Kombat 9, so we can tag team, and do the tag team combination moves that will deal lots of damage.
And we need Fate of the Chosen, Fate of the Chosen is a story mode where you upload a character you've created into a game, and there will be both offline and online mode that we can duel with each others. And we can do a tag-team. -- MaxfireXSA 16:37 July 21, 2011 (UTC)
I'd want tag-team 2-vs-2, 3-vs-3, 4-vs-4 and 5-vs-5! But maybe in SCXXX!!!=)Linstella 07:20, July 23, 2011 (UTC)
Don't forget to add "Moves Creation" in the character creation.
Dear Namco, I always forgot to remind you that you have to add the "Moves Creation" in the character creation along with the weapon of choice that we made from "Weapon Creation" Mode. So we can create a moves using the moves that are available, and we can input our command list, and we can name our moves whatever we want, as long as it's clean for online players. And don't forget that if we create a moves list, we can create a super moves list, and critical finish moves by selecting the moves, and naming the moves. Yes, it will took us hours to design it. But don't worry, as long as the moves is not that complicated to create especially weapon creation. --MaxfireXSA 15:59 July 24, 2011 (UTC)
I say absolutely not. Too much work, too much development time, and too much resources for something that's going to be imbalanced right out of the gate. There will be nothing keeping people from making movelists full of the best moves, blowing through every challenge of the game, and the development time can be put to use finetuning features with a more widespread effect--like gameplay. Veresordeo 04:45, July 25, 2011 (UTC)
Taki's not dead. May not be playable, though.
http://kotaku.com/5824166/takis-not-dead-and-ivys-all-grown-up-in-soulcalibur-v - Natsu is pretty much her replacement, says Tago. She may make an appearance, but whether or not she's playable is another matter entirely. Veresordeo 00:10, July 27, 2011 (UTC)
Xianghua Confirmed Not Returning in Soul Calibur V
Xianghua is confirmed not to return. Her daughter Leixia is taking her place. This was announced at Evo 2011 as a world exclusive along with some gameplay. Tem14 20:07, July 31, 2011 (UTC)
It's sad, shes my favorite character. :'(
Please do not add notions of disconfirmed characters into the article (especially not a whole section dedicated to them). Those characters will not be in the game, so I strongly feel they have no place in the article. There's no such sections in any of the other game articles, either. Wikis should be based on coherent and verified facts, not just pouring every theory and bit of information that's said about the game into the article. If you want to write how someone doesn't appear in this game, write it to that character's own article. SamSandy 13:10, August 1, 2011 (UTC)
These are not rumors, they are proven facts. This can be helpful to a wiki user who has not checked the wiki in a while. They will not have to go around to every character's page and check if they have been disconfirmed. They can do from with one centeral location with this section. It can be deleted once the entire roster has been confirmed, but until then it is a useful resource! What do you think, wiki members? Should there be a disconfirmed characters section?
I say no. We already have a spot of drama involving characters who aren't entirely confirmed being put up as entirely confirmed, this only adds another problem into the mix. The problem is that people are taking the "proven" part of "proven facts" very lightly as it is, and then get upset when it gets called out. If we absolutely HAVE to have it, I say put it on the talk page. Veresordeo 17:26, August 1, 2011 (UTC)
- I agree that Taki and Nightmare shouldn't yet be listed on the article as returning characters, since they've only been mentioned in passing. But I won't go against the majority. I have removed some fake "confirmed characters" from the article a few times already, so I'm all for sticking with just the characters we know are 100% confirmed to keep the article as clean as possible. Fans are gullible, unfortunately, and false rumours often spread like fire. It's a big hastle to fix information that proves to be false if it's spread too far inside a Wiki. I experienced this first-hand in Final Fantasy Wikia when FF XIII was about to be released. SamSandy 19:53, August 1, 2011 (UTC)
Speaking of which, which five characters, including Xianghua and Shura, have been confirmed by Daishi Odashima as not returning?
I know Pyrrha is a stand in for Sophitia and possibly Cassandra but there's just this thing that doesn't add up. If she was abducted at the young age of four and, according to her bio, she doesn't even realise she had a family, how can she have a similar style to Sophitia and use the weapons made by her father? May I add, the weapons Sophitia was using during SC4, when Pyrrha was already gone! This doesn't make any sense. Suuusuuu 20:30, August 16, 2011 (UTC)
- Actually, I don't think she's a stand in. I think of her as an extra leg for Sophitia and Cassandra since she has her own fighting style (Protected by her sword and shield).:D--SarahPaiFan 23:15, August 16, 2011 (UTC)
- This "protected" part almost sounds like her sword and shield are possessed by Sophitia's spirit or something! Suuusuuu 23:24, August 16, 2011 (UTC)
- It's most likely referring to the actual part of her combat style. She'll probably have a long list of moves involving shield bashes, grapples involving her shield and so on. Kind of like how Yun-Seong's combat style primarily involved kicking.220.127.116.11 07:48, September 2, 2011 (UTC).
It was really possible that Natsu would be Chie's daughter. --Starkitty61 22:39, September 10, 2011
Character color schemes unified corresponding to personality?
I have noticed just now that not only a lot of characters have the same haircolor, a lot of them also have very similar schemes in their costumes - especially the "bad" or "evil" characters (However, I know that these characters are not all evil or bad, but they aren't considered the most "good" characters in the series). When you compare all of the "bad" or "cold" characters that have been announced for this installment, only Astaroth breaks out from the silver hair and purple costume theme. Ivy, Z.W.E.I., Tira, and now Viola, all have silver or white hair and mostly purple costumes.
This lack of variation in designs is truly disappointing as soulcalibur has always been a very colorful game in terms of character design.
- I think you are just exaggerating this. Silver hair is a common anime stereotype. Tira doesn't even have purple in her outfit (only in her hair), Natsu is a red-head rather than blonde, etc. I don't think anyone has any trouble telling the characters apart, it's not like they're that similar... SamSandy 19:14, September 19, 2011 (UTC)
- What...? Telling the characters apart? I didn't say they looked so similar that people might get confused.. just that the color schemes are repeating themselves, look at the previous games - the only haircolor that was repeating itself so many times was black due to the origin of the characters and each character looked unique with different color schemes in their outfits. And yes, Tira does have purple in her outfit.
- Also, how is Natsu a redhead? Her hair is a slightly strawberry blonde, on the artwork as well as the 3D model. This isn't red hair... Just because it's not the exact same cool shade of blonde as Pyrrha's or Siegfried's hair doesn't mean it's not blonde anymore. Suuusuuu 19:54, September 19, 2011 (UTC)
- You can argue all you want, but I see Natsu's hair as orange, aka. ginger aka. "red-head". And to my eyes Tira's costume is dark bluish grey with green and pink. But this is just splitting hairs, so no use wasting either of our time. ;) SamSandy 13:58, September 20, 2011 (UTC)
Deconfirmed character into Downloadable Content
I have an idea, if Hwang, Shura, and Xianghua were deconfirmed, then we want it in the Downloadable Content as a DLC characters. Especially Toki, Seong Han-Myeong. So please realease it in the DLC for Xbox Live and Playstation Network.
P.S. Why? Because you can add returning and new characters into DLC (especially guest character).
-- MaxfireXSA 18:52, September 26, 2011
Not a bad idea but about Shura I can already tell that it is not possible because SC4 bonus characters are not owned by Namco, Namco hasn't got their copyright! I known that Shura is a great character and I like also Angol Fear and Ashlotte but we must say farewell to them! Linstella 11:07, September 29, 2011 (UTC)
I'm absolutely disappointed
Why have passed 17 years? Why is there all this need to twist the cast? Where is Taki? Where is Xianghua? Where is Seong Mi-Na? Where are Cassandra sisters? Why replace them with similar characters but less charismatic? Who, indeed, what the heck is that Natsu? The old cast was so nice, wasn't it? Why? Why? But why? Damn! Natsu and Phyrra are unwatchable! Cassandra sisters was good characters, not theese two abominations! If the reason was the renewal of the game, it could have been done with the old cast without running 17 years! Why? I'm desperate! What do you think? Linstella 11:24, September 29, 2011 (UTC)
Well, you know what we think of that? All the characters that appeared in SC4 will appear, because, the fans who like Talim, Amy, Xianghua, Taki, etc., will not buy the game, and Nanco will lose customers, right? Each character's weapon are different from each other, and are the original Soul Series, so why exclude? To us, each character has a really great popularity should appear. Twins Deia and Lica 15:56, September 29, 2011 (UTC)
- So you guys just want to play the same game over and over again? If you want all those old characters, go play SCIV. It was about time Soulcalibur got some real innovation into it, because just tagging Star Wars characters onto the old template wasn't cutting it... 18.104.22.168 18:54, September 29, 2011 (UTC)
- The fact is not to play the same game, the fact is that each character in a beat em'up must be kept and preserved because there are people who become attached to them! Did you understand? Linstella 09:14, September 30, 2011 (UTC)
- I agree with what it said right above. Sure, not all the "favorites" (which is a matter of opinion) will return, but it seems like most of the fighting styles will return (or something similar) so why complain? Plus, they haven't even released all the characters yet! We don't know if Seong Mi-na or Cassandra are out, we know that Taki will be in the game in some form, playable or not, and Sophitia hasn't been confirmed to be dead yet. I love all the new characters and can't wait to try them out. If you are just trying to make money, keep pushing out the same game, with the same characters. I won't keep buying it. This is a bold step for this series, and I love it. Kimchi1988
- If you don't like how things are going, DON'T BUY THE GAME and go back playing other soul calibur games. All the characters haven't be reveal yet and once again more bitching.from the top comment.Let Namco do what they need to do. I wanna see if the new characters are very challeging like Viola, Zwei and Natsu. I'm a big fan of the Alexandra sisters but they are not the only ones I use for fighting. So please, stay calm until the damn game come out or don't waste your money.
- I'm very calm, the phrase "DON'T BUY THE GAME" is meaningless as well as the fact of playing the old chapters! In a beat em'up the roster must be kept because people become attached to it! Otherwise don't call it SoulCalibur 5 but call it by another name! And don't justify it saying that it's the continuation of the saga because is meaningless!!! Linstella 09:14, September 30, 2011 (UTC)
You are complaining about a game that not only isn't out yet, but we don't even know the whole roster. Wait till it's completed and you have played it before telling us how terrible you think it is. Kimchi1988
- I do not need to play with it to say that I'm disappointed that 17 years have passed and that even if all SC4 characters will return, they would return aged! The SC5 versions of Mitsurugi and Siegfried are unwatchable! The unfortunate thing is that Z. W. E. I. and Viola seem good characters therefore I would have seen well between the SC4 roster!!! Linstella 10:33, October 1, 2011 (UTC)
OK, let me get this straight. You guys are telling Linstella not to judge it harshly, yet you seem to think it's the greatest thing since sliced bread. Predictable as this has happened to me a lot lately. Fact is, I've been into SC since Soul Blade, but I refuse to even buy this money grab called SoulCalibur V. The story is bunk especially the fact Sieg has once again pulled a 180, the character designs are horrible especially Tira and Siegfried's and the new chars look like they were made in CaS. All in all, I don't need to play it to tell me if it's good or bad. A picture is worth a thousand words. Fact is SoulCalibur IV should have been the last one. Nightmare76 19:16, September 30, 2011 (UTC)
- Or SC4 should have been the last chapter or, if they really wanted to continue the story, they no longer had to pass a couple of years keeping the same roster! However, it is true, a picture is worth a thousand words!!! Linstella 10:33, October 1, 2011 (UTC)
- Stopping the series with SC4 would have triggered people screaming in agony because their "favourite game was over"... As you said, if you don't buy the game, some customers will be lost. But new ones will arrive. My first video game was Soul Blade, don't you think SC5 will be someone's first video game? I don't get Linstella's argument about beat'em all... It's a fighting game, no need to compare it with other games... I could therefore compare it with the FF series. Didn't people get attached to the NEW characters? Did they cry their eyes out when they heard that each FF had NEW characters instead of OLD ones? Thus you are right and so am I... The fact is: Namco is not a newbie in the video games world, they know what they are doing. If they fail? That'll teach them and correct it like Dynasty Warriors 6 was "corrected" [Just to please you with the beat'em all argument]. If they succeed? Good, people will ask for characters to be used in SC6, 7, and when Namco will get Patroklos or Z.W.E.I. out in SC9, you'll cry again. The world evolves, Soul team has to change their game to keep pace. If you don't want any evolution, go play Pong. HOWEVER I accept any good criticism, but you can't just go "OMG I don't wanna play him because he sucks." You sure do NOT have a clue on how the character is, you can't judge a book by its cover. If Soul team kept the story going one year after SCIV, it would go completely repetitive "Soul Edge is still alive, they need to purge it" blah blah... Won't you cry again like "Geez they need to renew their game!" I must confess at first I was pissed that the game suffered the 17 years gap but after all, isn't it what the series needed? SC4 was really poor, the characters were dying... Do you REALLY want the same game again and again? I don't. If you do, then do not ask for any new game and just ask for characters' updates via DLC. BUT if they changed the characters' movesets, you would also have complained with "I prefered the old version of them!"... Whatever would have happened wouldn't have been good enough, so pardon my words but STHU and wait until the game is released before judging it: you might wet yourself in joy if they announce your favourite chars as part of the CaS or the roster. If you don't, well just keep your old games carefully and pretend you're playing SC5. JefferyDante 21:35, October 1, 2011 (UTC)
Yeah... that ain't happen with me, pal. You speak of it like it's a person or something, it's not, it's a game, nothing more, nothing less and fans have every right to call them as they see them. Those people who would have screamed in agony over it ending evidently would be overzealous fans who don't seem to realize all things must come to an end. And how do you suggest they fix this blunder? The only way is to reboot is which again I want NO part of. SoulCalibur V(iolated) is an abomination created by two guys who are simply dragging it under to make the Tekken series look better by comparison. It's not evolution, it's just a money grab, open your eyes people! They don't give a flying crap what you want, they just want money. Fact is, the 17 year later thing is crap, the character designs are crap (especially Tira and Sieg's) and the fact that Viola is supposedly Amy and Sieg pulled a 180 yet again... no, just no. SC is over as far as I'm concerned. It should have just died off rather than being turned what it has become. Enjoy your horrible game with all the masses who evidently will buy something just because of a title, I've got more important things to spend money on rather than wasting it. Also Linstella and I are not the only ones who think so. I happen to know another member on this very wiki who thought it was a bad idea from the very beginning, but he chooses not to get in on these debates. Nightmare76 18:51, October 2, 2011 (UTC)
Add continue and game over screen in SCV
SCIV is disappointed about the continues and game over screen and what you got is "Stage Failed". C'mon Namco, we want continues and game over screen back. And make it dramatizingly sad music when it comes into game over screen. MaxfireXSA 09:49, September 29, 2011
