Unused SCV Voice Clips providing some story hints.

So it turns out the English dub of SCV has unused voice clips just like the Japanese one. Thanks to "Zirothos" on Sounds Resource, it turns out a whole lot of unused voice clips were actually left in the game files. Of course, it's impossible to know how many were left out of the game. I'd say it's safe to assume these were supposed to be used for the Story Mode, judging by file locations of some of them and the fact that they're in the same order as characters with story related voice clips that were actually used: As in, they're the very last sound clips with actual dialogue that's not used for either battle or that are simply characters saying the name of characters they know, or calling them something.

If you want to listen to them yourself, here you go: https://www.sounds-resource.com/xbox_360/soulcaliburv/

With that said, here are a some interesting things I picked up after listening to them:

Cervantes seems to go up against Ivy in the Story Mode, offering to spare someone, assuming they surrender. "Surrender now, and I won't gut ya!" Backing that idea up more, there's this one: "No one talks back to me, least of all you!" We already know he hates Ivy by the time 5 has started, so it's most likely her he's refering to.

As for Viola, her voice clips drop a few bombs. She apparently decides to leave Schwarzwind at some point in the game's story mode, saying "It's time to leave". To make things even more interesting, there's something she doesn't want people to know about, saying "I'd prefer this be kept a secret."

On top of that, Hilde says the following in a voice clip: "Your secret is safe with me."

As for Raphael, he has some very interesting clips as well. He seems rather pissed off at someone, most likely Viola. "You will tell me, willingly or not!" So it seems Raphael does in fact end up meeting her. Lastly, there's a clip where he yells this: "Amy! I'm here!"

Next up is Leixia: She, and most likely Maxi, Natsu and Xiba as well, end up visiting a rather nasty place. "Well, that's that... Now let's get out of here, and quick!"

Natsu goes up against someone she initially considers to be evil before changing her mind. "I guess you're not evil after all. So who are you?" Truth is, I have no idea who she could be refering to.

As for Xiba, he either already knows that, or he ends up discovering that, Kilik is in fact his father. He outright refers to Kilik as "Dad." as opposed to his name or calling him something else.

Siegfried apparently goes up against someone in a fight who he loses to, and he doesn't sound very happy about it. "You've won! Well done..." There's also one where he sounds rather pissed off, yelling the following in a tone similar to how he yells at Nightmare before fighting him. "Show me your strength... once and for all!" Again, I imagine these are Story Mode clips, so he seems to go up against someone he hates.

At least one of the Astaroths doesn't seem to be going through some easy stuff. Apparently, something rather painful happens to him ("The agony! Raaawrh!") Also, one of them seems to get a pretty big power-boost. ("Raaaaawr! POWER FLOWS THROUGH ME!" as well as "Against this power, all will crumble!"

Apparently, Algol ends up going against either Mitsurugi or Edge Master. ("You dare to surpass me?")

Ivy has these two: "You should know your place, little girl." and "I don't think less of you. Your caution was only natural." I have no idea who she's refering to. It imagine it could be either Pyrrha, Natsu or Leixia, but arguably Tira (Which I'll go over shortly.)

Mitsurugi has a voice clip that hints at him going up against Algol and winning. "It isn't about how much power you have, it's how you use it." Not only does this seem kind of like a throwback to his SCIV ending, but Algol seems to have a bit of an ego because of how powerful he considers himself. Mitsurugi also seems to go against Xiba, saying this: "Look kid, this isn't some game." Why Xiba? Well, Mitsurugi refers to Xiba as a kid during battle. ("Kid, this is war!")

Kilik doesn't have anything interesting. Still, he seems to go up against someone pretty tough who he apparently doesn't know. "You're no ordinary fighter..." and he also goes up against Edge Master at least once.

Next up, there's Maxi with a few unused lines. There's this one: "An audience, huh? Guess it's cool!" I'd say he seems to have been to the Conqueror's Coliseum, judging by that line and this one: "Guess I'll be taking the price money! Got a problem with that?" Lastly, there's another one that's not really earth-shattering, but a rather nice clip that should have been used for when Alpha Patroklos fought him: "Been a long time... Krita-Yuga."

Tira, having two personalities, surprisingly only has a few lines. According to Jolly, Tira goes up against someone she sounds rather dissapointed with, most definitely Nightmare. "You just don't look right!" There's also a whole lot of other lines Jolly has: "Now then, let's test the new toy!" and she apparently goes up against someone knowledgeable about something. Well, Ivy has done a whole lot of research in her life so maybe she went up against her?

"You'll tell us everything we want to know!"

"Now, talk, loser. I'm all ears."

As for Gloomy, she has no special lines.

If you thought Viola had some interesting stuff, Z.W.E.I has a voice clip that makes things more interesting: "Where's Viola?! Answer me!" Viola apparently goes missing at some point without him knowing about it, and he apparently thinks she's been kidnapped. This as well as the unused Viola clips and the fact that Viola was listed as an antagonist during the Legendary Souls Rundown would suggest something big happens to her during the story. That and the fact Raphael makes it sound as if he finds Amy at some point just adds more fuel to the fire with the whole Viola = Amy debate.

Next up is Nightmare. Aside from "It's all... futile!" there's some very interesting stuff here as well. There's also a clip where he sounds rather angry and as if he had just been in a fight: "This is not... the end!" With the way he says it, he makes it come across as if he had survived his battle against Z.W.E.I. Lastly, there are two very intriguing clips where he sounds rather respectful and almost like a mentor, despite being in Nightmare Mode. "Fight, with all of your soul." and another one where he says this: "You fought bravely... for the mere babe that you are." I swear, it feels like he's refering to Viola in these voice clips.

So, go ahead and speculate if you want. I have to say it's quite a shame that with the confirmed timeline reboot in 6, it's likely the complete story of SC5 will never be revealed.

The game was original supposed to take place after 5 in the timeline but things shifted gears and it became a reboot. All you're seeing are the remnants of that.

Nah, he said these come from SCV. These are remnants of the unfinished SCV developpement.

If only the devs had more time, SC5 would've been a great entry, regarding the aspect of a story mode...oh well, on we go to the new timeline.
Definitely agree. Wish they made small priced DLC to complete it.

Truth is, I think most people would have been mad at having to pay money for what should have been there to begin with. I wouldn't mind Project Soul putting the complete story out there somehow, not necessarily with a game. A man can dream.
