Nightmare is a playable character and main antagonist of the fighting game series Soul Calibur.


Long ago, predating the existence of the world, there was a demonic sword known as Soul Edge. Soul Edge housed the fire demon Inferno, who wanted to wreck chaos and spread darkness across the world. To do this, he needed a warrior capable of wielding Soul Edge to transform him or her into an azure-clad knight named Nightmare. Originally choosing the pirate Cervantes before settling on the knight Siefgried, Nightmare carried out his plans of conquering the world with fear and darkness... Until Siegfried fought for his freedom of the demonic blade and won.
