Distant Marsh is a stage in Soulcalibur IV, notably used by Talim. It is set in a lush swampland. Ancient ruins covered in vines provide 3 walls for the area. The now-extinct dodo bird can be seen walking about the stage which suggests the location of this marsh is the island Mauritius, as this was the only known location of dodo birds. However, the non-native hippo can also be seen bathing in the sun which implies the location may be entirely fictional. Whenever a character does a Critical Finish, the dodos will run away from the stage before the Critical Finish is performed. Many characters' endings take place here.


  • The stage returns in Soulcalibur: Broken Destiny as Sleeping Marsh. It is the same but at night, and the animals are missing.
