- "Challenge me again if you dare!"
- — Angol Fear
Angol Fear (アンゴル・フィア, Angoru Fia) is a Bonus/Guest character in Soulcalibur IV designed by guest artist Mine Yoshizaki. She has direct connections to the Sgt. Frog/Keroro Gunso franchise, although she debuted in Soulcalibur IV itself and she uses Seong Mi-na's moveset. Her weapon, named Lucifer Spear Black, is a spear with a large moon-shaped ball at the end of it.
What lies in her soul is Pity.
Angol Fear stands at 5'10" making her one of the tallest female characters in the series. Her appearance makes her fairly unique too. She is the only character to retain her anime facial features in game, perhaps to enhance her other-worldly aura. Her costume is comprised of grays, blacks and whites and often detailed with silver edging. Her skin is tanned and her eyes large and grey.
Once there was a man who, disappointed over life and the world, entreated the heavens to curse all existence as soon as he died.
While alive, the man acted as a prophet. By achieving a momentary connection to the cast annals of history that slept in the abyss of the cosmos, he was able to learn about events from the past and future. But, in as deep a despair as he was, the man used his supernatural link in an attempt to send his regrets into the core of the universe. Until, at last, he made a pact with the Will of the Cosmos: destroy the planet.
Without giving the matter any further thought, the Will of the Cosmos made its decision. The world would be destroyed after a five hundred-year grace period. During that time, the Earth's doomed inhabitants could try to change their wicked ways.
However, as soon as the man died, a visitor came to earth. While she was a marshal in direct service of the Will of the Cosmos, entrusted with the power to punish on its behalf, she had not been tasked with the Earth's destruction. Instead, she was to investigate the earth. Five hundred years from now, when the one tasked to destroy the planet arrived, would he or she find Earth, a land where swords, spirit, and cursed waged endless battle, worthy?
Depending on what she found, there might be no need to wait for the appointed executioner to arrive. The day she judged Earth unworthy would be the day of judgment.
Soulcalibur IV ending
The people who seek Soul Edge are pathetic and cannot control that much power. However, most people on earth live in peace, so there's no need to destroy the planet now. Unless, of course, the planet destroys itself...
The text-only epilogue states this: When that time comes, she will be ready to give them a fitting end. This "she" refers not to Angol Fear, who comes to observe originally and not destroy, but to Angol Mois, the one who is actually charged with deciding the fate of the world.
Angol Fear can be considered a fairly hostile character who doesn't hold back during fights. Her intro quotes such as "I will remove all obstacles in my path" and "Fool, you dare to stand up to me?" make her an intimidating and confident opponent. She cares little for the humans of Earth and seems to think of them as mere fodder. Despite her outwardly cold and severe personality, she can be considered level headed and fair. In her ending she spares the planet not because of mankind, but the numerous other lives within it. This shows that she is at least considerate to some degree.
Furthermore, she can recognize strong warriors, even praising them in one win quote "That did amuse me for a while." Although she can equally be scolding in her remarks "You risk your life and that's all you've got?'
Overall, she is a fairly serious woman who has no time for weaker opponents but may find it interesting if they can provide her a challenge. She is confident in her own strengths and can come across as intimidating.

- In Soulcalibur IV's Chain of Souls, Angol Fear is shown to be one of two characters showing interest to both Nightmare and Siegfried, the first character being Darth Vader.
- Angol Fear could be considered a guest character, however she did debut in Soulcalibur IV, despite her direct connection with the Sgt. Frog/Keroro Gunso franchise.
- Although Angol Fear is tied to the Keroro series, she is included in a relationship chart released alongside Soulcalibur: Broken Destiny, in spite of her absence from that game, unlike the actual guest characters. The chart excludes non canon elements like other crossover characters and story elements from Broken Destiny's Gauntlet mode, yet still includes Angol Fear and other Soulcalibur IV bonus characters.
- Despite being included in an official relationship chart, her having any canon role in the series is still debatable. Out of all the bonus characters in Soulcalibur IV, she is the least likely to be considered canon due to her anime inspired appearance in-game and her direct link to the Sgt. Frog franchise.
- Angol Fear's presence on Earth apparently attracted the attention of both Edge Master and Olcadan, although, in the end, neither needed to act.
- Despite seemingly no canon relationship, she is depicted with Cassandra in her official art.
- Angol Fear looks similar to her cousin, Angol Mois, a character from Yoshizaki's Sgt. Frog/Keroro Gunso manga series. She wields the same type of staff weapon and wears clothing with a style similar to the one of Angol Mois' true form. Angol Mois wields a weapon called the Lucifer Spear in the series (even the Japanese audio uses the English name) while Angol Fear wields the Lucifer Spear Black.
- After her debut in Soulcalibur IV, Angol Fear appeared in chapter 148 (which was collected in volume 19) of the Sgt.Frog/Keroro Gunso manga series, where she visits modern day Earth, wondering why Angol Mois hadn't destroyed the planet yet. Volume 19 also included Angol Fear's backstory, with references to her involvement in Soulcalibur, including an illustration of the Soulcalibur IV version of the Soul Edge and Soul Calibur.
- Angol Fear is supposed to be the heaviest of all characters in Soulcalibur IV. That's implied to be because she hasn't adapted her form to Earth, suggesting that her unusual weight of 1.44 tons is due to the Earth's unfamiliar gravity.
- She is also one of the tallest female characters in the series, at 5'10" the same height as Ivy.
- Her 2P outfit uses Angol Mois' colors, even changing her Lucifer Spear Black to make it look like Mois' Lucifer Spear.
- Unlike the other bonus characters who were rendered into the game with more realism compared to their original design, Angol Fear kept her anime-looking appearance in-game.
- Despite Angol Fear supposedly weighing 1.44 tons, all characters are easily capable of grabbing and throwing her due to game mechanics not taking in-canon weight into account.
- Her sub-boss title is 'Hands of Judgement'.
- In Angol Fear's Story Mode in Soulcalibur IV, after she defeats Yun-seong, Talim, and Seong Mi-na, Angol Fear captures Yun-seong as a specimen of earth. But then he manages to run away from her after the third stage. This may have caused Yun-seong to become the "Afterglow of the Universe" ingredient in Soulcalibur: Broken Destiny, which was needed for a cure to save Hilde's father.
