- Franchise Killer: The negative reception to the game over its flaws (removing fan favourites and replacing them with less-popular ones, a half-baked story mode that had 3/4's of its story removed, and Patroklos'... everything) ended up putting the series on ice for several years with only lackluster spin-offs to compliment it up until October 2018, when Soulcalibur VI was released. Fortunately, that installment was such a success to Namco Bandai that it revived the franchise that this game nearly destroyed.
- Relationship Voice Actor: Patroklos, Pyrrha, Xiba and Elysium are Yosuke Hanamura, Rise Kujikawa, Yu Narukami/Tohru Adachi and Marie.
- Stillborn Franchise: V was going to be a new story altogether, which would've continued all the way up to Soulcalibur IX. Sadly, it never happened due to the negative fan reaction, with VI being a Continuity Reboot instead.
- Talking to Himself: Siegfried vs Ezio Auditore faceoffs in English. Both are voiced by Roger Craig Smith.
