Possible Opponents[]


The spirit of Soul Edge, Inferno, corrupted the mind of several people, one unfortunate person named Siegfried. He promised him that he would resurrect his dead father if he gathered enough souls. However, Siegfried succumbed to the evil sword and became the Azure Knight Nightmare.

Nightmare would terrorize Europe for years until Siegfried was able to separate himself from the evil sword. But it wasn't the end of Nightmare, as Inferno re-animated Siegfried's discarded armor and used it to hunt down Siegfried and continue its terror across Europe.
