Soul Calibur III Tips
Back to top
Yoshimitsu has a move in Tekken called Soul Siphon where he puts his palm on your forehead and sucks away your soul to replenish health. Here, whenever he performs Soul Siphon he heals you and consumes a bit of his health.
EDIT: By Renegade Bladesman-
there are two moves with yoshimitsu, the first sucks the opponent's health into himself, the other syphons his health into the other character, check the command lists for the exact names.
Highlight a weapon you already bought or cannot buy and continually press X then the shopkeeper will get angry
When you make a character, you'll notice a bar below the 3D model. There are two crosshairs; one on top and one below.
ON TOP= Where your character belongs. Red means good guy and blue means bad guy.
BELOW= The way your character speaks. Red means he/she speaks like a good guy and blue means he/she speaks like a bad guy.
Barbarian(Young Man 2):
<Starting a battle>
Good- "Wanna see my true strength?"
Bad- "A futile effort."
Good- "It looks like I'm the winner."
Bad- "Want me to hurt you some more?"
A tip rather than a cheat, more a easy way to get your characters to a higher level within the Chronicles.
Play through to Chronicle Four, then kill off all opposition except for the final character.
Then attack that character with two of your characters.
Do a few moves and then let then die. They'll still get the experience, then they'll retreat. When they come back do the process again.
It's not worth doing on Chronicles 1-3 as you don't get many experience points, but by C-4 you get a reasonable amount and it doesn't take too long to level up your characters
Whenever you fight colossus in single player missions in easy or norma play as cervantes then keep your distance as you simply shoot him repeatedly (forward+square+R1). It's a really easy way to score gold.

The best way to unlock disciplines quickly:
1) Set Vs. Standard to 1 match
2) Have player 1 and 2 both pick the same custom character you want the disciplines for.
3) Set your handicaps to 0% (or at least p2 if you're by yourself)
4) Play 50 matches. Since they're all one-hit-kill it should go by fast.
5) Exit to the title screen and you should have all the disciplines for that class unlocked
Go to the Chronicles of the Sword and lose. Save and exit, buy stuff at the shops but do not save. Then go back to the Chronicles of the Sword and lose again. Every time that this is done, you should notice that the money counter should be the same even before you went to the shop. Handy for getting all weapons.
Okay Abyss can be real easy or real hard, it just depends on how you fight him.
Okay all you have to do is at the start just repeatedly throw him and move near him if he tries to roll away. As soon as he gets up, throw him again, repeat. Another way is if he break free then pick Zasalamel and do his Back kick or forward kick near the edge to kick Abyss off.
NOTE: The latter tip is VERY HARD to pull off as Abyss might kill you, so perform the former before trying the latter
1) Fight Revenant
2) Choose -> Search for Sophitia
3) Fight Assassin
4) Fight Zasalamel
5) Choose -> Continue Search for Soul Edge
6) Choose -> Focus on Azure Knight
7) Fight Kilik
8) Chose -> Stop
9) Fight Shadow Master
10) Fight Astaroth
11) Fight Seong Mi-Na
12) Choose -> Search for Man
13) Fight Raphael
14) Choose -> Proceed
15) Fight Unknown Soul-Nunchaku CAS
16) Choose -> Approach
17) Fight Olcadan
18) Fight Zasalamel
19) Fight Night Terror
Suggestion: The best weapon to use would be Valkyrie if you have it unlocked.
Note: You can't lose or else it won't work
Complete chapter 18 and bonus or play 600 battles.
In this game, he is right handed. In Tekken, he uses his left hand to fold the sword.

Get a nice amount of cash in COS (chronicle of sword) 100,000+ should be sufficient. Load up a saved game on COS and go to the shop. Spend as much money as you can on weapons, items, etc. Now instead of leaving the shop as you normally do, perform a soft reset(start+select)on the game. From the title screen, load up the game of COS and die as efficiently as possible (it sounds cliche but try to die as quick as you can). After the chronicle fails you should receive a small amount of money for none of your strongholds being taken over,plus, the amount of money you had to begin with. From there click retry and save your current data. After doing so you should have more money than you had to start with AND items you bought from the shop. Reapeat as many times as nessary. *important note* you will not receive your unlocked items in other modes until you save your game.
Kilik's Third Ending
During Kilik's ending, instead of pressing A+G as indicated on the screen, if you press B+G, you'll see a third ending.
In Chronicles of the Sword it is good to lose because your experience goes up and later on it will be hard to obtain higher levels.You should always face leel 60 fighters
Search for Strong Souls
Continue to seek strong souls in the area
Aquire a little more power first
Fight Thief + Thief + Voldo
Cut Down Boastful Man
(Grand Labyrinth) Fight Raphael
Fight Zasamalel + Night Terror
In order to unlock the "Soul of...." discipline you must have met the certain battle requirements for the selected Create a Soul class. There are several steps you must do in order to unlock these classes. *Also note that the Swordmaster class do not gain any discipline account of the fact that they already have all of the other classes discipline so you use classes other than Swordmaster.
1) Have both players chose the same Create a Soul character.
2) Once you have done so put one of the players Life bar to 0% and set the match counts to 1.
3) Next have about 50 continuous matches and after you have done so open the Menu screen and choose "Return to the Title Screen" after you have done so you not only have unlocked 2 joke weapons but you have unlocked the other disciplines you could use for that class.
*Some of the classes would say "Soul of Zasalamel" or any other standard warrior. What this means is that your character is going to the exact same victory pose and moves and your create a soul character can now use taunts.
When watching a replay, hold down X for the duration of it and it will all be in slow motion (the sounds will sound the same, but at different times).
You can get all of the Create a soul Parts by completing Chronicles of the Sword and by buying them in the Armor shop.
An easy way to get all three shop girls at once is to first choose Yoshimitsu in Tales of Souls mode. You'll first encounter Yunsung-- He'll be a breeze. Now you'll be asked to look for your missing subbordanate, or look for Soul Edge. Choose to look for Soul Edge. Now you'll come up to two more fights, a team battle between Theif and Voldo, followed by the clock tower fight with Zasalamel. Beat them, and after Zasalemelle, you'll be asked again to either look for your missing subordanate, or continue looking for Soul Edge. Again, choose Soul Edge. You'll now be at an arena, fighting Rock. Beat him. Now you'll get another choise box, this one telling you that Yoshimitsu feels like he's being watched, and that you can either run off, or stop. Choose stop. You'll now be in a team fight against all three shop girls. They're all pretty tough, but if you use constant throws mixed with shielding, you'll have 'em in no time.
Beat them in Tales of Souls mode to unlock them.

This is just something I found interesting. When you go to name a character if you push the Triangle button it will choose the letter and you will see a little slash come from the top of the letter. This corresponds with X for up-slash O for slash-left and square for slash-right. Now press all four buttons at the same time. The letter will fall off the keyboard. If you time it right you can continually bounce the letter in the air or you can go to other letters and see how many you can make fall.

Choose the discipline grieve edge on a created character and during battle press A+B together and your player should do a flying kick which should send your opponent flying out the ring in one go. To get this discipline just either be a sword master, monk or barbarian and unlock it.
When you go to the option to edit the colors of the standard fighters, after picking a female character hold down L1+L2+R1+R2 when the screen fades to black. You will now have a fourth option instead of just three.
Defeat Night Terror in tales of souls mode.
To reset the game while playing, press start and select at the same time. This will return you to the title screen with everything you had when you sat down to play this time.
NOTE: This cheat can be done anywhere.
When you use the falling letters cheat, hitting the buttons again whithout moving your curor to bounce the letter in the air.

Here is a weird glitch.
1.Go to Vs. Standard
2.Have both players choose a person who has the STAFF discipline.
3.Make player 1 have infinite health while player 2 have NO health (i.e. 0% handicap).
4.Choose Sacred Mt. Fuji as the stage.
5.Make the first player push the second player to the edge.
6.Make player 1 use right (or left, depending on which way your facing)+ O (hold).
7.If you did it correctly, the player will launch off his staff, kicking them both into the lava.
8.Now, when it's showing the replay, make it slo-mo when player 1 was launching off.
9.Make it not slo-mo when they hit the lava.
10.When the screen showing the who the winner is, you will still hear the player's screams! If you would like to see a video of it, go to Youtube and type in Soul Calibur III lava glitch.
