* NotEvenBotheringWithTheAccent: A particularly extreme example. Almost everyone in the series speaks with a generic American accent despite the fact that ''Soulcalibur'' takes place in the 16th/17th century, with the characters hailing from primarily Europe or Asia '''before''' the United States even existed. The exception to this is Ivy, who is voiced with a deep British accent that's appropriate for her. GuestFighter [[VideoGame/AssassinsCreed Ezio]] is another exception, being voiced with an Italian accent that holds true to his original series.

* LostForever: Sometime around possibly Late 2016/Early 2017, the DLC for Soulcalibur IV has been delisted from both respective console stores in all regions (Playstation/Xbox), this too also includes the digital Xbox 360 version for unknown reasons (although back in the day, full games for PS3 digitally weren't a thing yet until the Early 2010's, so no digital PS3 version never happened). Although no official sources mentions anything about the delisting besides word of mouth by some social areas/forums for Soulcalibur. Supposedly, it might be licensing issues due to Disney having the Star Wars franchise or it might be that Bandai Namco doesn't want to renew the license with the Star Wars characters, though both are wild guesses to speculate. Fortunately, the game is still available physically, but those looking to have a complete character roster will be sadly attuned that the DLC characters for Darth Vader and Yoda are no longer available. (Although, this isn't the first time a fighting game with DLC and the digital game gets removed, that honor goes to some of the titles in the CvsW [[CapcomVsWhatever]] series.)

The ''Soul'' series (unrelated to the [[VideoGame/DemonsSouls "Soul's]] [[VideoGame/DarkSouls Ser]][[VideoGame/{{Bloodborne}} ies"]]) is a series of [=3D=] weapon-based fighting games created by Creator/{{Namco|Bandai}}'s team Project Soul, arriving shortly after the success of its other [=3D=] fighter, ''VideoGame/{{Tekken}}''.

* {{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.

Added DiffLines:

* 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]].
