Top Ten Soul Calibur Characters


The Top Ten

1 Nightmare

Nightmare's one of my favorite characters. But why the hell isn't Talim on here? Talim kicks ass just as much as Nightmare. - Megatronusprime

He can be the best character in the right hands with all his cheap shots and his design from Soul caliber 2 kicks ass.

He has a massive sword that can demolish and eat every soul. He can also kill Kratos no problem. - blindingscythe

Nightmare is overpowered and once he becomes Nighterror not even Algo dares to face him, plus there's also Inferno which as you know is physical incarnation of Souledge

2 Talim

Talim's speed combined with her elbow blades are strong and fierce. And if that doesn't grab your attention then her unique fighting style combined with somersaults acrobatics, and kicks are the perfect mix for unpredictability against her foes. But above all her humble nature really stands out among the cast to me. As others would see as weakness, Talim's sweetness and kindness is of her strongest weapons."Conflict lies within you" Talim SC2

The character design, personality, and fighting style are aces across the board. She's one of the few cutesy female characters that completely avoids that "sexy" school girl ditz trope, nor do the creators fall into the sexy "exotic" trope. Rather, her soft-spoken and innocent nature are compounded by resilience, compassion, and strength.

In my opinion Talim rocks! she's fast, agile and can hit her opponent before they can hit her - swopjo

The youthful priestess was initially created to add variety to the current selection of fighters, a selfless, young girl, something that the creators felt that the series lacked.

3 Kilik Kilik

Kilik is fast and strong, and can deliver a killing combination of kicks, punches and twirls - whatsitsname

Kilik needs to get his rod back or at least get his old fighting style back. Because Kilik as a mimic character is unacceptable.

Good moves, easy to learn, good range, kind fast and probably do Xianghua!

The best love the way he moves his stick

4 Taki Taki

I have yet to find someone who can beat me when I play with Taki. She is way too quick. I can easily take down nightmare, most of the time people can't even land a hit.

Best ever she is one bad ass birch she is very fast and can take down the slower characters such as nightmare

Tons of fun to play as and shes also a badass ninja!

Huge boobs

5 Amy

She's quick, can string combos and won't let you get off of the floor. She's not a power house like nightmare but can easily avoid one and counter strike. Besides who couldn't love those curls

While Amy lacks power and reach, her combos and speed are incredibly powerful. Once she gets "in the zone" and gains momentum while attacking with combos, you've basically lost.

I love her shes my favorite character I also love her as Viola

She is pretty good.

6 Mitsurugi

He is a tank. His ring out move is over powered and his A, B runs through everything. I love this guy I used him to beat Inferno AND NIGHTMARE on hard.

Remember his name. Mitsurugi.

Very good balance between strength and agility based on good samurai stance:-)

Love his sword and stuff he's wearing

7 Sophitia Sophitia

Kilik? Nightmare? Cervantes? Favorites really? Talk about button mashing idiots who think the easiest/OP characters to use are the best. Sophitia is a general good character to use- she's not simple to use but not that complicated either- she has some major advantages but also major disadvantages. Her fighting style is very fun and unique. Her fighting style is probably 25% of the reason why she's my favorite, most of it is this: she is the most caring and admirable character in the game, shes very strong and independent but also kind and gentle- she fights for her children and would go anything for them. Her storyline in soulcalibur 4 proves the lengths she'll go to in order to protect her child, even if it means turning against everything she knows and sacrificing her life..

She absolutely incredible! One of the first original soul caliber fighters. She is one of the original female fighters. She elegant gorgeous and very religious, and she is also very powerful!

A brave caring mother who deserves more recognition than she gets, also a veteran in the series since the first game. Love her!

Sophitia is hot and the best player to play as

8 Yoshimitsu

Yoshimitsu is the best only if you know how to use him other wise you may kill your self which is awesome when your playing against some one that just hits random buttons

The best love his sword

This guy is funny

Namu Namu Namu Namu! [Yoshimitsu does Sword Pogo] Whe!

9 Siegfried

The man to kill, nightmare fans watch out seigfried is coming for you bitches and he's gonna slice you with his big ass sword

Number 16 what he deserves higher! At least 5!

He beats down nightmare all the time

RIP nightmare

10 Ivy Ivy

Duh! Ivy. Even with some screwed up physical changes, she was such an original all along. She looks sinister but is actually very heroic and tragic (maybe a tragic anti-hero). Early Ivy was awesome. Don't mess with perfection! Also her early Player 2 outfits and fighting style were very cool. Besides Ivy I really liked playing as Voldo and Yoshimitsu. I guess the strange ones are more fun?

Ivy is the best. I mastered her from soul calibur 2 to 5 and broken destiny. Since she was my favorite because once she hits you she start to take your life until its empty, you can't dodge her attack even in rolling. Besides. She has many unblockable attacks and almost all of it are useful in her combos. A bit hard to master but when you do, you'll probably gonna love her.

Once you figure her out, you'll impress everyone else who hasn't given her a chance. Has been a favorite of mine since soul calibur 2!

Her last name is just like Jill from resident evil valintine

The Contenders

11 Voldo Voldo Voldo is a fictional character in the Soul series of video games. Created by Namco's Project Soul division, he first appeared in Soul Edge, and later in all games of the Soulcalibur series with the exception of Soulcalibur Legends.

He may be creepy but he sure knows how to fight! His story is somewhat sad and disturbing but it's not about your past, it's about fighting! And Voldo is hands down the BEST Soul Calibur character in history! Not to mention one of the best fighting characters from any series!

What makes Voldo a great character is his disturbing almost slave-like appearance and odd behavior (Which includes hissing, grunting, and groaning). Different stances with odd moves make Voldo super unpredictable and explosive. And although difficult to play with, a mastered Voldo player is almost impossible to defeat!

You've gotta love him. Definitely the most masculine character in the history of Video Gaming.

Voldo's unpredictable nature, if handled well is the difference between victory and defeat

12 Cervantes

By far the best fighter in the whole series! Who the hell is Nightmare #1!?!? Because Cervantes can destroy him any time of the day

Best villain ever and the original holder of soul edge!

You shall become a part of my power. Super Epic.

Welcome to combo hell!

13 The Apprentice (Starkiller)

He is strong as darth vader and fast as yoda so how mutch better can it be

14 Tira

Tira is by far the best character in every way possible. She is really strong and fast and has an unbalanced personality which is awesome in my opinion. She loves to kill like Jeff the killer. She should be the main villain in all of soul caliber out with Nightmare in with Tira!

Tira is my favorite. Her fighting style is unique as she wields a ring blade, and she uses special acrobatic skills as well as two different personalities to choose her opponents demise.

Tira rocks. If you are not very good with her, you won't know but she is a really good character. You don't know where she is going to hit you next.

She is amazing

15 Seong Mi-na

I think this poll is rigged or bugged o_O I voted for Seong Mi-Na and Cervantes went from 11th to 8th and everybody else went down 1 (except those in front of him)

Why Is Seong Mi-na so low? She's one of the original eight and was the original longsword user, better than Kilik for sure.

16 Cassandra Cassandra

Love her grabs and kicks and shield and costume and different weapons choices

She's quick fast powerful and sexy and better than her sister

She's quick strong fast and neat one the best to play as

The BEST waifu EVER!

17 Raphael

His grab and thrust move has got me more ring outs than all the other characters combined...

This guy is awesome! Plus he's French, which means he's both badass, lovely and charming.

Where the hell is EZIO?! - IceAlpha

Like this guy he's cool

18 Link Link Link refers to several different incarnations of the same protagonist of Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda series.

When I was 10, I was at GameStop looking for a game for the GameCube. When I saw Soul Calibur II's Boxart featuring Link, in 8 seconds I got the game. And it was WORTH IT. Link wields the Master Sword, the blade of evil's bane. It is powerful, and is used in many of Link's attacks. However, close combat is FAR from his only coverage. He also has the Boomerang as a projectile, a bunch of Bombs for mid-range combat (Bomb to the crotch! ), and the Hero's Bow that shoots arrows for rapid, long range projectiles. And, most notably, he's so much fun to play as. He's so powerful and fun to use, I forgot I could play as other characters for 3 months when I first got Soul Calibur II! He's so great!

Link is my favorite character from Legend of Zelda series - Adamshane1999

19 Xiba

He is pretty cool but there are so many better than him

I have now idea why I love this kid so much, he's just awesome, :D - isabellapineiro

He really isn't a bad character, it's just when you stop to think about the rest of the SC cast and then realize he is Kilik's replacement :(

Xiba just doesn't compare

Plus they went a little overboard with the food loving thing, kinda like his mother's "Just Kidding D ". I still love both characters' personalities though.

20 Patroklos

He sucks beyond words. Sorry for anyone who likes him.

Love this dude, reminds me a lot of vegeta

Apologies to anyone who likes Patroklos (for some reaseon), but I truly DESPISE this character.

He would actually make a better villain for the series, they should go that route, kinda like Siegfried in early SC. Though Pat has nothing on Sieg.
