I don't see Patroklos making it in the next game, given how much of a [[TheScrappy Scrappy]] he's become. His inclusion in ''Lost Swords'' received universally negative reception, he placed at the bottom of the poll only ranking at #37 out of 45 characters (getting a measly 32 votes), and the fact that Namco themselves made fun of him on Facebook. All of this says that ''V''[='=]s "hero" has failed to make a positive impression on the audience, and the character is being subject to CreatorBacklash. It's likely that Pyrrha will stay, being that she's an Alexandra girl and has received somewhat better reception, but Patroklos will get written out of the games in some manner in order to make room for the old characters.

* [[VideoGame/DarkSoulsI The Chosen Undead]], because linking this series with that other "Souls" series would just be too good to pass up.

Soul Edge's info says,"at first Soul Edge was just an ordinary sword, but after being bathed in blood and hatred countless times, the sword turned into a demonic weapon and gained a wicked soul."This description fits Gut's personality since he has killed many humans and demons with his sword so,one day inferno forms inside dragonslayer and later takes over Guts.This can also explain why nightmares' right arm is different and also explains how the hosts feel no pain.

[[WMG:''Soulcalibur VI'' will bring back the series back to the original setting 17 years prior to ''V'']]
The prologue to ''Lost Swords'' basically says that the stage is set at the end of the 16th century (where SE through IV takes place), and that the shards of Soul Calibur and Soul Edge were scattered across time, bringing the fighters together across time and space (which explains why Patroklos, Pyrrha, and Leixia were together with the old cast). While the gameplay itself was obviously non-canon, that tidbit at the beginning hasn't been confirmed not to be. Given that Project Soul has changed leads since ''V'', and that the old cast has been the ones being promoted over the new (the only exception being ''Project X Zone 2'', where Natsu is featured. However, that game had no involvement from Project Soul), it would seem like the old characters are set to return. Especially when you consider the Facebook Popularity Poll, where all the originals outranked their replacements.

* Unbreakable Soul is non-canon, so that takes away some of this theory's credit. Not quite Jossed, though.

Siegfried is already supposed to be a {{homage}} to the legendary {{Norse|Mythology}} hero, Sigurd. Gram, the sword used by Sigured to kill the dragon Fafnir, is a recurring weapon of Siegfried ([[SpellMyNameWithAnS mistranslated]] in the games as "Glam"), and Siegfried himself gets to face Fafnir in ''Legends''. Then comes Lady von Krone in ''IV''. She gets some light ShipTease with Siegfried, and ultimately offers [[TheAtoner him]] the ''one'' thing he sought in her ending: {{forgiveness}}. [[ShoutOutThemeNaming Now look at her name]]. Her full name is Hildegard, or Hilde for short. Hilde, [[MeaningfulName as in]] Brunn'''hilde''' (or depending on the translation, Brynhildr or Brynhild) the valkyrie? Does either '''a)''' the ''Literature/VolsungaSaga'', '''b)''' ''Literature/{{Nibelungenlied}}'', or '''c)''' ''Theatre/DerRingDesNibelungen'' ring a bell? If you're not familiar with these stories, all that you really need to know is that our hero rescues the fair shieldmaiden, they fall in love, and soon after ''marry'' (well, at least in the first two). [[ShippingGoggles Make of that as you will.]]

When Mitsurugi find him, what he will do in unclear (train, kill, beat up, be disappointed). As for why, he could be Villager A and an {{Expy}} of [[SevenSamurai Kikuchiyo]], a commoner who wants to be a Samurai.

[[WMG:Sophitia disappeared from the Soul Calibur universe entirely]]
According to the character page, Sophitia's unconscious body was taken into the Astral Chaos in ''Unbreakable Soul''. The official series website lists Sophitia as missing, rather than deceased. As such, it is possible she is still alive. But, if she is, where is she?

My theory is that she is indeed still alive, just no longer in the Soul Calibur universe. I believe that her GuestFighter status in [[VideoGame/WarriorsOrochi Warriors Orochi 3: Ultimate]] is more than just a guest appearance, but in fact canon for her character. She is still alive, she was just ''abducted into a new universe''.
