Avengers will have an exclusive character that’s only available to
the PlayStation versions. It sounds like a scumbag move, but it’s a
trick that Soulcalibur has been performing for decades with some of
the available characters.
The sword-swinging beat 'em up was one of the pioneers of
including guest fighters, a practice that has spread like wildfire in
fighting games. Smash Bros. may have perfected the idea, but
Soulcalibur did it first.
celebrate this increasing trend, we've ranked all of the
guest characters from the main Soulcalibur series. There do need to
be some important caveats that need to be addressed, otherwise it
becomes an unwieldy mess.
these characters are listed for the significance of their inclusion
and how cool it was to see them, not just how good they were as a
character. Sometimes tier lists are used as a factor if nothing else
can separate entries.
also not counting characters that are created using the Character
Creation modes, which would exclude KOS-MOS and Devil Jin. They need
to be selected from the original or DLC roster. Finally, we’re also
not counting any spin-off games, so no Lloyd from Tales of Symphonia,
but we will be counting any guests from handheld games.
And no, we’re not
counting Yoshimitsu and their ever changing attire as a guest
character: Each version is every much a part of Soulcalibur as they
are a part of Tekken.
