03 Soul Edge—Soulcalibur
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?
