Ivy's primary weapon, Valentine is a snake sword with the ability to expand and contract at will. Ivy performed extensive research to find a suitable weapon to aid in her quest to destroy Soul Edge. She based its design on an Asian multi-segmented whip. The first attempts were mechanical whips, based on mechanical principles, but she rejected those ideas and began using black magic to create the perfect weapon. She summoned the hand of Nightmare to give life to "Ivy Blade", but she was ignorant that this power was from Soul Edge, the same power she sought to destroy. After she found out her blood and weapon were also linked with the wicked sword, she changed her weapon's name to "Valentine".

Soulcalibur II

Most familiar and well-balanced weapon for her.

Offense: 100% Defense: 100%

Description: A living sword created by the alchemist, Ivy, for the purpose of destroying Soul Edge. Ironically, she used the power of Soul Edge in the creation of this weapon. Perhaps because of her cursed blood, this is the weapon best balanced for Ivy.

Interesting Facts

  • It was actually created by Count Valentine, Ivy's step-father. It was given to Ivy by Leonardo, who is supposedly Leonardo da Vinci.
  • Ivy once called it the Ivy Blade, but renamed it "Valentine", because they were connected to Soul Edge, a weapon that Ivy sought to destroy.
  • In the beginning of Soulcalibur, it was a lifeless weapon, but with the summoning of Nightmare's deformed hand by Ivy, it came to life.
  • Even though it is a living weapon, Valentine, unlike Soul Edge and Soul Calibur, does not have the ability to shape-shift, but can stretch out in every attack.
  • Valentine was destroyed in Ivy's Soulcalibur IV ending. However, it was not canon and the weapon returns in Soulcalibur V.
  • In Soulcalibur II, this weapon is referred to as Valentine (Ivy Blade).
