The Wo Dao is a sword from the country of Wo. In other words, it is the Ming Dynasty era Chinese name for a Japanese sword. Most of them were used only for display, but among them were some that were actually used in battle. Even as far away as Europe, the sharpness and power of Japanese swords were well-known.

Soulcalibur II

The Wo Dao is Raphael's 5th weapon, bought for 1.600 gold since Chapter 4.

  • Pros :
    • Attack +35%.
  • Cons :
    • Short reach.

Much like the Stiletto, the short reach is not really an annoyance (unless you rely on horizontal attacks) due to Raphael's lunging movements and weak horizontal attacks. Then, Wo Dao can be considered as positive-only weapon. Seconded only by Soul Edge for Attack power (40%).


  • This sword was an alternate weapon for Raphael in Soulcalibur II and one for characters using the Katana discipline (found exclusively in the Samurai and Sword Master classes) in Soulcalibur III. Its skills increase the attack pushback and recover health while successfully guarding enemy attacks.
