A while back I recreated 2 Weaponlord characters in Soul Calibur VI, as the game contained a lot of the basic gameplay foundations the Soul series utilizes as staple gameplay elements - WeaponLord is an old weapon based SNES game released back in 1995 and published by Namco. It has been cited as the basis for Namco's later weapon based fighters (specifically, Soul Edge).

In reference to Weaponlord being a big part of Calibur's history, here's Divada -

And Zarak -

That's really cool! I've never heard of WeaponLord before. I can see how those characters could be source material for Calibur! Divada reminds me a little of Ivy but with Grøh's weapon, and Zarak looks like a blend of Asta and Rock, except with an insect motif. Good recreations!👍

Edit: hell nah, Zarak definitely reminds me of Asta whereas Banf makes me think of Rock. I want to keep looking at WeaponLord stuff now lol

Thanks! I'm not sure the characters themselves influenced Calibur, as Weaponlord existed in a far more gritty, dark fantasy setting than Calibur does, though the fighting system was almost certainly a basis for Calibur. Zarak had a big ol' spider head and every character has this super muscle bound fantasy barbarian image to them. Here's the wiki if you're interested in reading more:-

My deep sea mermaid OC Nerine received a bit of an update today - Setsuka wasn't in the game when I created her and now I finally have creation pack C, which really does have a lot of cool, small quality of life things which are really useful like the new stickers and the hit effects are really fun, too!

The weaponlord recreations are so cool! As are all the other customs here. 😍
Thank you kindly! I have some more screens I want to compile into a few collages, but most of my stuff ends up going on to Reddit first, being as I'm more active there and it's more active in general. =)
