SoulCalibur II Tips
Back to top
When you have selected your character to fight with (in any mode where it shows the 2 combatants face to face) and the loading scene appears, press any button for your character to say something. You can only do this once per load.
When you are playing in A weapon chooosing mode. Select a character and choose a weapon. If you hold square, a sound will appear and then go to Charade. If you did this correctly, you will get that weapon for that round.
*Make sure that the stage you choose has an edge where you can knock the enemy off*
At the beginning of every match, pick a character that can launch the enemy into the air (such as Mitsurugi by pressing A+B). When the battle starts, immediate keep pressing A+B, or L2 if you're lazy. Keep pressing it while moving to the edge of the ring, then release L2 and do a horizontal attack. This will send the opponent out of the ring. This might not work well on agile enemies.
Before the your character does his/her victory pose after a battle, press and hold a button to do a certain victory pose assigned to each button.
On weapon master mode there are two missions that are played in the gambling dens.
The easier one is City of Nashira (Chapter 6 Stage 2), which doubles your winnings with each enemy you defeat.
The harder one is Ancient Amphitheater (Chapter 9 Stage 2), which earns gold every time you succesfuly harm you opponent but there is only a 15 second time limit and you and your opponent are pushed together. I find this easier to do if you play as Talim and use the double crescent blades as they are short range and more powerful and faster than a normal weapon

When you are in a dungeon that you have to complete entirely on one power bar, if you get close to the boss and don't have enough life to fight him, then just go back to the very first room of the dungeon and fight that character they will give you your entire power bar back upon entering the room.

In this game, there are several different characters who have large weapons and know how to use them extremely effectively in the fights they are in.
One way to handle them is to come in close. Some of them have some moves which are strong at close range, but they are both weak at defense and their options are limited.
If ever caught, this might be the way to go. Just make sure not to get grabbed.
Have fun with the rest of the game!

At the start of the level just give the enemy all you got. Try to knock the enemy off the edge if you can to save time. When you get to Taki you need to use attacks with Guard Break properties.In the Command Menu just look for an attack with the letters GB highlighted in pink. These should do loads of damage.I used Taki to beat this mission and used her "Seal"(< + triangle)and held it down untill it let go on it's own. This should take her down to few hit points.

Complete Arcade mode to unlock a Profile of the character you were playing as.
This isn't much of a hint, it's just something I discovered. After you unlock Assassin and Berserker, veterans of this series may recognize some of their moves. Well, after weeks of Internet searching, I can say that Assassin is really Hwang, and Berserker is really Rock, from Soul Edge! If you don't believe me, look at the two characters. They keep most of their bodies hidden, so they could be anyone! Plus, Berserker's weapon, the Great Axe, is the same as his final weapon on Soul Edge.
