Soul Edge is the central villain of the fighting game series named after it in its first installment but afterwards and from then on named after Soul Edge's "good" counterpart, Soul Calibur. Soul Edge is an evil sword that is the ultimate source of evil in the Soul universe and is cosmically opposed to the aforementioned Soul Calibur. Most of the storylines in the games revolve around people fighting over it, with the good guys generally wishing to destroy it, the neutral characters and lesser villains wishing to use its power for personal gain and the very most evil characters wanting to unleash its power to destroy the world.
Soul Edge exerts a corruptive, possessive influence over anyone who wields it, the most notable victim of this phenomenon being Siegfried Schtauffen, who became the monster known as Nightmare while bearing the blade. Later, Siegfried redeemed himself and relinquished and destroyed the blade, but Soul Edge was revived by Zasalamel as part of an elaborate suicide attempt and given an independent humanoid body of its own that came to be known as the second Nightmare.
