03 Soul Edge—Soul­cal­ibur

XBox: The Official Magazine (US) - - EXTRA -

There are so many blades in Soul­cal­ibur wor­thy of this list—and Ivy’s pre­pos­ter­ously awe­some whip-blade-thing, Valen­tine, comes a close sec­ond—but the win­ner has to be Soul Edge. Just look at it! Part dead shark, part cleaver, part Res­i­dent Evil boss. Best of all, it changes shape de­pend­ing on the pref­er­ence of the user, which would be mar­velously help­ful if it didn’t also de­vour the user’s soul and drive them slowly in­sane—it’s pow­er­ful enough to com­pletely cor­rupt the most no­ble of char­ac­ters, as demon­strated by the fall of Siegfried. Soul Edge is also wor­thy of note for be­ing the only blade here that’s a se­ries an­tag­o­nist as well as a weapon. You can’t say that about the Drake Sword, can you?
