Critical Guage SCV

the Critical Gauge (unfilled).

The Critical Gauge, called Soul Gauge in previous titles, was changed to a meter system in Soulcalibur V. It can hold a maximum of 200% and drains upon the use of several gameplay mechanics such as Critical Edge (requiring 100% of gauge), Brave Edge (requiring 50% of gauge) and Guard Impact (requiring 25% of gauge). The gauge will gradually refill while performing attacks or while blocking attacks. The player that is one round away from losing the match will be given an additional 100% of gauge (but this only happens once per fighter per match).
