There was a time when a man named Siegfried Schtauffen took control of the Soul Edge, becoming powerless under the power of the blade. He eventually was able to retrieve his mentality and used the power of the holy blade Soul Calibur in order to save his body. He was separated from his Nightmare form and became the new wielder of Soul Calibur, while Inferno made a pact with Zasalmel, who made him a new body of his own. Thus…Nightmare was born.

I hereby give Capcom full rights over this moveset and are welcome to use this in any way/shape/form that they desire.

*Ahem* Well...I've been playing alot of Soul Calibur 4 lately and...well...I was tempted to make a moveset for possibly one of the best and coolest game villains ever, Nightmare from the Soul Calibur . This guy is one of the reasons I hope they expand to Namco vs. Capcom after Street Fighter X Tekken is done, for I'd use a team of Felicia and Nightmare (And Wesker if it's 3 vs 3) and be completely unstoppable! >8D

Anyways...enjoy everyone. :3

Awesome! Would you have an ending for him?
huyh Featured By Owner Oct 10, 2011
Nightmare is definatly the most badass character in SCIV (even though he's only my 3rd best)
BatCountryDouche Featured By Owner Oct 10, 2011
This would be awesome for a Capcom and Namco crossover. Speaking of which...

*sigh* Why is it that we always get screwed over when it comes to game selection here in America? :unimpressed:

Or maybe they should just make him a guest fighter in Street Fighter X Tekken. Makes as much sense if more than Cole and those two cats.
TheSwedishElf Featured By Owner Oct 12, 2011
I think instead of them, they definitely should've added Nightmare or another SC character, and perhaps a Darkstalkers cameo for Capcom's side.

Actually more due to Nightmare's actually from one of the companies and those three aren't.

Hotfeet444 Featured By Owner Oct 5, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
One of my favorite Capcom characters (Favorite Male character from Capcom)
AF4E Featured By Owner Oct 5, 2011
Who's deader than the zombies and isn't coming back.
Hotfeet444 Featured By Owner Oct 6, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
You can't have Resident Evil without Wesker.

There's fans who don't believe you, RE3.
Hotfeet444 Featured By Owner Oct 7, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
RE3 was good because of Nemesis, nothing more.

I wondered if you would make one like this. :XD: Very nice job. :D

Just had a funny thought. What if there was another character that was similar to Deadpool. Not creepy like Adam the Clown, but just as funny. XD
Double-Dee-Edd-Boy Featured By Owner Oct 5, 2011
Wow! I also hope that they make Namco vs. Capcom after SFxT (though the epic combo I did with Yuri in Tales of Vesperia did it for me)! This looks like a pretty feasible Nightmare moveset! And the only characters of the Soul series I can think of suitable for such a game are Seigfried (gotta have the main character), Nightmare, Mitsurugi, Taki and Ivy. Well done!

As if Akuma wasn't bad enough ^^;
Hotfeet444 Featured By Owner Oct 5, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
