Night Terror


When an action is so reckless that it will bring about one's own destruction, it is often too late by the time one realizes it. For Zasalamel, the appearance of Night Terror was a perfect example of this.''

Even Zasalamel had underestimated the power of the cursed sword. It far surpassed that of his secret arts. During the ritual when Zasalamel attempted to take the power of Soul Edge for himself, it fused with not only the summoned Nightmare, but with even the power of Soul Calibur, becoming a terrible incarnation of pure destructive will. It is likely that Zasalamel never even saw its form: Night Terror. Perhaps it had retraced the memories of the blue armor, or perhaps it had a remnant of the self-will that had formed while it used Siegfried as a host. Whatever the case, this entity bore a slight resemblance to Nightmare. It easily escaped Zasalamel's control and appeared behind him, wielding its power like a raging current, and obliterated him.

The man who had craved death met his end - though not in the way he had intended. In his place, an unprecedented catastrophe gained wing and claw and was released upon the world.

Night Terror is one badass, and very powerful boss. He's got air projectiles, insane priority, and is ridiculously overpowered... of course. While he's everything you could possibly hate about a fighting game boss, I think he's definitely a cool design, and was an effective boss in SC3. I liked him as a design, but I wouldn't go as far as to say I'm disappointed that he didn't make it to Soul Calibur 4. ;)
