Requiem by Aikurisu Requiem by Aikurisu
Without doubt, if there is one blade in the gaming world that has left a lasting impression with me, it would be Siegfried Schtauffen’s zweihander, Requiem. Admittedly, however, it’s incarnation in SC4 isn’t as cool as it was in SC3… but then there’s a lot of things in SC4 that feel less awesome to me, compared to what they were in previous installments... Even ol' Sieg has lost a certain coolness about him too... which is sacrilege in over 108 different countries! ... including made-up ones that should exist just for this reason alone!

You're right he does lose a certain coolness...a;pt! 
It was only subtle in IV, but in V they removed every essence of his character and everything i loved about his character: His battle cries and his hot-blooded-ness (making Nobuyuki Hiyama not as enjoyable), and rendered him to the quiet mentor character.... ughhh. oh and that black armor and the 3ft long cape...hideous. By far his 2p design in II and his SCIII 1P outfit are his best.

and btw, between sc3 and 4's design of requiem, its design doesn't exactly have continuity (granted, each game its design is subtly different :\ ).

This is, without a doubt, one of my favorite swords in video game history. I would love to own a replica of this thing. A very nice picture, keep up the fantastic work!! :D

Thanks. =)  And yeah, agreed.  I was glad to see it return in SC5, too, but even it wasn't enough to save that game, imo. >_>;

Unfortunately. But hey, maybe they'll do an HD port of Soul Calibur 3 if the HD Soul Calibur 2 is successful

Gah, I'd love to see that.  Requiem looked its best in SC3, too.  (Along with Sieg's armour and so on...)

I fully agree. The same goes for Nightmare and Soul Edge!

Siegfried's my favorite character in the Soul Calibur series, his stance-based fighting style is awesome!

Agreed. The stance-based styles are the best. =)

hmm, well if you like this, you'd love the Manga 'Berserk'.
The main protagonist uses a weapon that's incredibly similar to this, except it doesn't have that spade-shaped tip and also it's BIGGER THAN HE IS! XD

lol, come to think on it, I actually have that series too. But some reason I've never gotten around to watching it... yet. XD
