SoulCalibur II Tips
Back to top
To win the arcade mode easily, and get a good time, just take Talim and run at the opponent and press Y, keep doing it, if you run at them, and press Y right when they start to get back up, they will fall back down. After about two or three times, your attack should knock them out of the ring.
play as link and start by backing up towards the edge of the stage. if this isn't possible at first, like when the edge is too far away, just hit the oponent with repeated ->+Y+Y+Y+Y. then back up towards the edge. make sure ur not facing off the stage, but towards oponent. wait for them to come to you but if they dont hit them with link's arrows until they do. when they come, use links throw & if he does the right one (usually), then he'll throw them off the stage for a ringout. if they dont fly off but they r near the edge on the ground, do links DOWN +Y attack before they get up & they will slip off. its funny and easy!!!!

this is a good strategy for dungeons in weapon master mode. just stand with your back to the edge when your near it and use his A/B throw.
Now, before I begin, this isn't useful unless you time it right, but once you get it down it's pretty easy. This is especially useful in the story mode, for all those stupid little battles that you don't wanna waste time on. Pick Nightmare, and preferably a hard-hitting weapon - sometimes you might want one that heals instead, though, but anyways... when the battle starts, right off just hit the direction dowards your opponent and hit "A" (horizontal attack). This is a wide sweep that knocks them down (unless they block, but even so...) then, without letting off your directional movement, hit "Y" (vertical attack). This attack causes Nightmare to spin and bring his sword down, smacking the enemy REALLY HARD. This one is especially useful in stages with explosive floors. Keep doing this until your opponent is KO'd. Even if they move ot the side while executing the vertical attack, don't worry too much. This move tends to track, so 50% of the time even if your opponent side-steps you can still get them.
Keep in mind this doesn't work in certain situations, but it's easy for simple battles.

Go to the weapon master and go to the first thing. Start the fight then press "Give up". You'll get money for FREE!

Pick Rafael and just hit (this is toward your opponent, meaning if your on the left side, hit right, if on the right side hit left) -> Y Y Y (vertical slices) and he will keep smacking his opponents in the head ruthlessly, easily claiming victory for you!
It doesn't really matter what weapon you use here. It works against all computer opponents except easy opponents. They get up too quickly! First use Link's Guard+A throw. Then immediately charge up his dashing stab move. It should hit your opponent just as they are getting up and it can't be blocked either.
To get a lot of money in weapon master mode, play Chapter 9, stage 2 Ancient Amphitheatre repeatedly. You get a big gold bonus each time you complete it, usually around 30,000 gold. Since the amount of gold awarded as a bonus depends on the number of times you hit the enemies, it's best to use a quick character who can strike many times in a row, like Raphael.

An easy way to win many of the harder challenges, just keep pounding at your opponent with Necrid's ->+Y attack, it sends them flying, and after two or three they will get a ring out.
Simply enter weapons master mode or an extra mode and choose nightmare with the complete souledge and enter his command list in power moves. use the top move after soul charging and you've got a one hit K.O. !

To get a lot of money quickly in Weapon Master mode, replay the levels where you get a high gold bonus. Once you win a match, keep doing it until you get rich!

Sometimes fights can be a real pain in the butt. If you have this problem, I have an easy solution. Yoshimitsu. Now, this move isn't hard to operate so never fear! As soon as the battle starts, step towards the opponent, hold that direction and press "A" (horizontal attack) repeatedly. It's not annoying fast or anything, but it does SPIN the opponent, delaying their recovery time. Before they even recover - oh look, he's hitting them again!
This is especially amusing when you use his joke weapon, the Shepherd's Crook, as you can hear sheep bleeting each time you hit them.

In weapons master or an extra mode, select nightmare with the complete soul edge weapon.
Soul charge and do an earth divide atytack and it seriously damages you opponent!

When your right about to fight, press any button and your character will talk, grunt etc.
When the condition of the battle is that you cannot guard, use a weapon that is really strong but has no defense. It will help you out because you can do the most damage where blocking is irrelevant.

Astaroth: Astaroth may do chunks of damage, but his weaknesess are all about speed and being a big target. You should learn to keep Astaroth moving and avoid quick attacks.
Necrid: He's got a short collection of attacks, but that doesn't mean that they're good. Since it doesn't take long to memorize his attacks, you shouldn't really have any problems.
Nightmare: He's pretty fast for a heavy guy, and he's got a really long-ranged sword. Although fast characters who close in and stick to their target can give him a hard time. Learn how to keep his huge sword moving and make sure he stays on top.
When performing the "Turning Suicide" move with Yoshimitsu, wait until he is about to fall on his knees and then press A repeatedly and he will spin around with flames on him before falling to the ground.
- This may cause you to lose health. This trick isn't useful, but it is cool to watch!
SoulCalibur II Glitches
Back to top
When fighting as Spawn on an Earthquake Board, if you Levitate at the right moment (I believe it's at the "2"), and use Levitation Necro Blast [hold], when the earthquake hits your opponent on the ground, ALL of the damage from your attack will be transferred to them, even if it doesn't hit them.
For the Levitation Necro Blast [hold], it's incredibly effective, since it's such a difficult attack to aim, and if you're using the Abomination weapon, it's a one-hit-kill.
This is a really easy way to earn cash & experience, because you can usually start and finish a match in the first 5-10 seconds if you execute it correctly (you won't Perfect the match, because of the small damage Spawn takes from each attack made with Abomination).

Some stages in weapon master that can be unlocked have alternates.
To choose an alternate, highlight the desired stage and press right or left.
Not all stages have alternatives and some have more than one.
At the versus screen press A, B, Y, X, L, R, Z or any direction on the control stick to hear characters say things before the match.
To get the voice actor names, after unlocking a characters profile (by beating arcade mode with them) select "voice" at the profile then once at the menu, press L and a small box will appear for a few seconds with the voice actors name inside it.
When you're battling an enemy with the earthquake every couple of seconds thing, if you die when it's shaking, the results screen will not stop shaking until you exit the screen.
NOTE: I died with a ring out, it may just be that, but I don't know.

This cheat is much easier to perform than it sounds, and pretty hard for any one else to dodge. This cheat is easier to do against slow people. all you do for this cheat is as follows: Knock your opponent down, an easy way is to press Up Y or Down Y or Down X, which will do a little damage, then repeatedy press Down Y, which will make Link jump into the air and will stab them with his sword. Each time you continuously do this chain of pressing Down Y, the opponent will stay down longer. I beat Hard Mode using this cheat. Oh, and I forgot to mention, if you hold Y while your on top of the opponent, it will keep hurting them for 1-3 more attacks, all doing the same damage each time.
