Soulcalibur VI’s character creation mode is awe-inspiring, eye-opening and horrifying all at once

Soulcalibur VI’s Create-a-Soul option is both blessing and curse.

Soulcalibur VI, Bandai Namco’s 2018 reboot to the beloved, long-running weapons-based fighting game series Soul Calibur is not only one of the most enjoyable, deep and critically-acclaimed fighting games ever made — it boasts one of the most “interesting” character creation modes of all-time too. Yes, “interesting” — how else to describe the Create-a-Soul process that has yielded such wondrous, fascinating and abhorrent concoctions as the following?

Alex Louis Armstrong (Fullmetal Alchemist)


Squidward Tentacles (SpongeBob SquarePants)

SpongeBob’s cantankerous neighbor, available in fully-bandaged, wheelchair-bound form from Season 1’s “Jellyfishing” episode:

“Here’s a little lesson in trickery.”

Richard Lizard

“In Soulcalibur VI you can attach objects to custom characters. So of course, people are gonna do what people are gonna do and make dicks,” Redditor u/thebombshock says in an apt encapsulation. “Also in Soul Calibur, the character Voldo has a really weird set of moves (Editor: as this video perfectly demonstrates), and one of those moves puts him in a stance where he gets on the ground like that and all of his attacks become pelvic thrusts. So this guy made a custom character with Voldo’s weapons/moveset, made him a lizardman, and strapped on a dick.
