Best Fan-Made Custom Characters We Love From Soul Calibur 6 (So Far)
Only three days after the release of SoulCalibur 6, we're already seeing some amazing character creations from the game's community. From obvious characters such as Ciri of The Witcher fame to more off-the-wall creations such as one simply called Pistachio, it's clear that SC6 fans are creative.
Here are some of our favorites.
Aang (Avatar: The Last Airbender)
u/RancidHyena brings us the last airbender (albeit a bit more grown-up then you might expect).
Unfortunately, not all of Aang's body-markings are accounted for, as the character creator limits the number of stickers that can be applied to skin, but this is a bang-up job none-the-less.
The level of creativity in u/PatBeefy's Jynx is through the roof.
While this first Gen Pokemon is unlikely to gain an edge through intimidation, maybe inciting confusion is a valid battle tactic in its own right.
The Dragonborn (The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim)
Simple but expertly executed, u/CatchingZzzzs' depiction of an iron-helmed Nord is spot on.
Tommy Wiseau (The Room)
Fans of The Room, a film described by many as the "worst movie ever," will love u/think_with_portals' depiction of "writer/producer/actor/director" Tommy Wiseau.
If players are able to channel the unbridled mania of Wiseau's performance into their combat, it is hard to imagine them ever being defeated.
Skeletor (Masters of the Universe)
u/FunRedGnome's Skeletor looks primed and ready to conquer Castle Grayskull.
A handy guide is available if you are looking to add He-Man's nemesis to your roster.
A round of applause for u/slugwurth's use of Voldo's claws to craft the lovable Decopodian doctor.
Is there anything more threatening than an alien crustacean in sandals?
Krumm (Aaahh!!! Real Monsters)
Another creation that gets maximum points for creativity, u/ReverendPopoff's Krumm is wonderful.
We especially love to see him assume the monster's standard position in the preview pane.
BoJack Horseman (BoJack Horseman)
While I am not certain that a self-hating, alcoholic horse would be my first choice for a battle partner, u/Dudelbaum's BoJack Horseman is a delight.
I suppose he might stand a chance in combat as long as you are not horsin' around.
Solaire of Astora (Dark Souls)
u/faranoox brings the Warrior of Sunlight to battle.
Praise the Sun!
Xenomorph XX121 (Alien)
Most of our featured creations use the Humanoid model as their foundation, but u/Maniels has done some great work crafting THE Alien.
Hopefully we see more players working with the Lizard Man model in the days to come.
Ciri (The Witcher)
The Witcher's Geralt of Rivia is featured as a guest fighter in SoulCalibur's latest entry, and it only seems fair that Ciri has her chance to shine as well.
Reddit user Anemeros, Ciri's designer, shares that he used the Warlord's Belt and Silver Gauntlets to make the Oiran Kimono appear like a standard top, and it really has a wonderful effect.
Illidan Stormrage (Warcraft)
u/Feldrassil's version of "the Betrayer" looks great. Creating these massive horns requires stacking multiples horns and finessing their size and position until they look just right. The extra effort is definitely worth it.
Now, if only the first Demon Hunter had access to his Twin Blades of Azzinoth.
The Hunter (Bloodborne)
Hunters do what hunters do -- they hunt. But apparently, that is not limited to collecting blood from the beasts of Yharnam.
u/fliplock_ used three sets of the Horns of Calamity to make the Hunters Hat -- an impressive attention to detail. The rest of the outfit isn't half bad, either. Adding in Ivy's fighting style is also a nice -- if somewhat different -- touch.
2B (Nier: Automata)
Earlier this year, rumors were circulating about the inclusion of the battle android as a guest fighter in SoulCalibur 6. Unfortunately, that didn't happen -- officially.
u/Hydrangeabed has decided to take matters into their own hands, and the results are wonderful. We especially love the inclusion of the Pod, which was made with a box, Allegiance Spines, and a horn.
It's a pistachio by u/TheMightyBellegar... That's basically it. Gaze upon its uniqueness with a furrowed brow.
We'll be adding to this list as more great character creations come out. Have you made any characters you are especially proud of? Share them with us in the comments below, and we'll be sure to add them.
