Gamers have had a whole weekend with Soulcalibur VI now, which is plenty of time to digest the game and provide a meaningful opinion on what it will do for the series' lore and competitive scene. Or they could just go wild with the character creator and post the hilariously disturbing results on social media. Guess which one happened.
While I have had some time with the game myself to work on The Gamer's review, I spent most of it as a character modeled after myself. Yes, I'm one of those dirty weebs who makes a self-insert. Fortunately for you, there are plenty of people on the internet who aren't creatively bankrupt like me. Websites such as Destructoid, Polygon, and Kotaku have rounded up some of the best.
Here's The Gamer's roundup of those roundups.
Of all the characters to take up arms and step onto the stage of history, you probably weren't expecting Marge Simpson. But here she is, and she's 100% ready to krump.
But if you were hoping for an actual video game character, or at least someone who knows how to fight, you're in luck.
If you want someone who really knows how to fight, as in defeating opponents with a single punch, they've got that too.
And yes, before you ask, there's Bowsette.
There's actually several Bowsettes. These custom fighters have been all over Reddit recently, prompting the creation of a subreddit dedicated to these creations. Soul Calibur Creations already has 5,000 subscribers, and there's some absolute madmen in their ranks.
Everyone's favorite space ranger.
Michael Myers needs some kind of hobby as he waits for Halloween.
Jojo characters work a little too well in this game...
Apparently Pickle Rick is still a valid meme. But on the topic of food, no fighting game roster is complete without this guy.
And what good is a burger and fries without a refreshing soda. If only there was a hero who could help with that...
Soulcalibur VI is out now for PC, PS4, and Xbox One, and its custom characters can be found all over your social media feed. Stay tuned for our review of the game.
