Soul Edge


Soul Edge, later known as Inferno, is the physical manifestation of the cursed sword Soul Edge's own soul. It fights using the attack style of other fighters from its memories of past battles, and will switch to a random one at the start of each round. Though it exists in its own dimension, Chaos, it has used duplicity such as in the case of tricking Siegfried into expanding its will, and in more extreme cases utilized Cervantes' flaming corpse and later the remnants of Nightmare's armor to create an avatar for itself. Its will and power has directly and indirectly affected several other characters in the series, such as the Evil Seed event that caused many to turn somewhat evil or insane. It has also caused the creation of several life forms or modification of them, such as Ivy's sword, Charade, Necrid and Abyss. As Soul Edge, it appeared in Namco X Capcom, shown to have the abilities to create Charades at will, as well as teleport its evil body.

As much as I loved the original Soul Edge (the game), I thought the final boss could've been a bit better... but I did like his stage. The whole flaming skull thing just reminded me of Ghost Rider... plus, Soul Edge mostly just used Cervantes's fighting style... so he didn't offer much originality. Thankfully, the Soul Calibur series acquired some much cooler boss designs in future sequels. (Geez Soul Edge, get with the times. lol.)
