* {{Badass}}: [[WorldOfBadass Basically every character in the game]]. It's a fighting game, what did you expect?
** BadassAdorable: Many of the younger girls, particularly Talim and Ashlotte.
** BadassBack: Voldo legitimately; other characters in ''III'' who [[FakeDifficulty shouldn't be allowed to]].
** LittleMissBadass: Talim and Amy.

* BigBadEnsemble: While Nightmare is normally the main villain of the series, ''Soulcalibur V'' has three separate entities competing for the title. The first is Graf Dumas - [[LegacyCharacter the new]] [[BloodKnight Nightmare]] - who uses politics, manipulation, and the power of [[ArtifactOfDoom Soul Edge]] with the goal to TakeOverTheWorld using his army of malfested slaves. The second is [[DragonAscendant Tira]], who wishes to resurrect the old Nightmare by using Pyrrha as a vessel, viewing the current one as a [[ReplacementScrappy fraud]], so she can reign chaos just as the original Nightmare did. The third is [[KnightTemplar Elysium]], the living incarnation of [[LightIsNotGood Soul Calibur]], who wishes to destroy Soul Edge and bring absolute peace to the world -- [[UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans regardless of the consequences]]. Behind the scenes is [[AGodAmI Algol]], who serves as the GreaterScopeVillain. How this all would've come together is unclear, due to the fact that [[CutShort only 1/4 of the story made the final cut of the game]].

* SetSwordsToStun: Everyone just ends up knocked out at the end of any bout, despite the fact things such as being hit vertically by gigantic axe can happen during the fight. Siegfried even reassures his opponent that he "avoided [their] vitals, [they'll] live" in ''III'' regardless of the fact that his weapon, a {{BFS}} in all senses of the term, doesn't really have the necessary precision to avoid doing anything but catastrophic damage to an opponent. ''IV'' gets the most extreme with this as opponents can be hit by honest-to-goodness ''[[LaserBlade lightsabers]]'' and leave both their weapon and body unblemished. However, as stated under BloodlessCarnage, in the series canon the weapons do real damage and characters have died from wounds suffered during duels.

Added DiffLines:

* MookChivalry: Chronicles of the Sword both averts this and invokes it. When multiple units from both sides meet on the battlefield, they'll all attack each other simultaneously. However, you also have the option of settling the skirmish the old-fashioned way, in which case the game's combat system forces both sides' combatants to line up and fight one-at-a-time. Battles involving forts have the latter by default.
