Special Attacks

Neutral B - Pure Sword Beam

Siegfried points Soul Calibur forward, while a small bright light is seen on the tip of Soul Calibur, then Siegfried fires a beam out of the tip of Soul Calibur. You can charge this attack until the light is about the size of a soccer ball. When you just press the Special button, Siegfried fires a small white beam, until it hits a object or enemy. When fully charged, the beam is about as wide as any character, and disappears when goes off the stage, hits a object or enemy. Uncharged deals 3%-5%, fully charged deals 16%-20%

Side B - Godly Slash

Siegfried disappears, then reappears about 2 seconds from where he was standing. If anyone is caught in between, they freeze, and then turn white for a split second, and explode in a small white explosion, sending the enemy flying.

Up B - Pure Force Field Lift

A White Magic surrounds Siegfried, like a bubble, while it lifts him up for a short distance. You can aim where you go, with the directional pad. It is impossible for Siegfried to get hit, but he cannot hurt anyone else. After awhile, the Pure bubble pops, and Siegfried starts free falling.

Down B - Base Hold

Siegfried crouches and uses Soul Calibur as a shield to counter attack if he is hit directly during it. If the player presses nothing, Siegfriend will do Reborn Kaiser. If Side is pressed, he does Reborn Basher. If down is pressed, he does Reborn Storm, the attack can be cancelled by pressing down again. This move does not counter projectiles.

Final Smash - Legacy Testament

Siegfried raises his sword above his head, and stabs it into the ground. This causes a trail of crystal spikes to appear in the direction inputted on the Analog Stick.
