Kaleidoscope is one of Ivy's weapons in Soul Calibur II through Soulcalibur V.

Soul Calibur II

"Legendary weapon. Wield it to discover its true power!"
— Weapon Gallery description.

Offense: 130% Defense: 100%

Note: Opponents who block attacks from Kaleidoscope still receive 60% damage from blow. Each strike, successful or not, drains health. Throws do not drain health.

Description: A legendary sword said to have existed since the world was made, and destined to continually change its form until the world ends. Many have sought it throughout history, but no one has ever reported seeing it, and currently it is thought that it may actually have been a metaphor for thunder clouds. The legend that one who grips it will be burned supports this theory as well.

Soul Calibur IV

It can be bought in Character Creation for 8,500 Gold after completing Story Mode with Ivy.

Soulcalibur V

 It is unlocked at player level 9.


  • The word "kaleidoscope" comes from the Greek "kalos" (beautiful),"eidos" (shape),and "scopeo" (to look at/examine). In other words, kaleidoscope literally means "to look/examine beautiful shapes".
  • Kaleidoscope is Ivy's ultimate weapon in Soulcalibur II & Soulcalibur III and her starter weapon in Soulcalibur Legends.
  • In its "sword" form, kaleidoscope resembles the Japanese relic, the seven-branched sword.
