The Requiem as it appears in Soulcalibur IV
|For sale in||Chapter 4, Chapter 6, Chapter 7, Chapter 9, Subchapter 3|
Requiem is a Zweihänder once wielded by Siegfried when he temporarily escaped the curse of Soul Edge and tried to make amends. It was his main weapon in Soulcalibur and Soulcalibur III and is a purchasable weapon in Soulcalibur II for Nightmare and in Soulcalibur IV after completing Story Mode with Siegfried. Siegfried also wields Requiem at the end of Soulcalibur Legends.
A zweihander once wielded by Siegfried when he temporarily escaped the curse of Soul Edge and tried to make amends. Its thick blade is very sturdy, but it is heavy and not suited for clashing directly against other weapons.
This sword has two principal appearances. The first is a straight wide sword with an accentuated broad edge at the end and a ring on the crossguard. The second has more of a gothic style with intricate designs all over the blade that lacks a crossguard yet has a spiked flamberge design along its lower length.
This second is the main weapon of Siegfried in Soulcalibur Legends. Though the game is non canon, he discovered that the forger who forge this weapon gave his own life to finish the weapon. Lloyd states that in his world, he chases weapons like Requiem and Soul Edge, because they are somewhat "magical". It is also stated that it was originally known as 'Gram'. Whether or not this makes it related to Gram that Siegfried has as an extra weapon in several other games is unclear. Strangely, the weapon appears in its typical 2p design in this game.
Requiem is also Siegfried's primary weapon in Soulcalibur V.
It should be noted that 'Requiem' is also the name for an identical sword to the 'gothic' 2P Design which appears in 'Tales Of Graces', another Namco-Bandai game, which is obtained during a sidequest. It is an item which is to be delivered to the champion of Riot's Peak (Tales of Grace's Battle Tower), who bears ice skills, not unlike those of Siegfried's skills with Soul Calibur.
- This weapon returns in Soulcalibur:Lost Swords as one of Siegfried's basic weapons, the 2P of this sword also appears but, it goes by the name of "Gloria" and its a rank "A" weapon.
- Requiem bears a strong resemblance to Dragonslayer, Guts' sword from the Berserk manga.
