Nightmare is the main antagonist of the Soulcalibur series. He appeared in the 45th episode of Death Battle, Guts VS Nightmare, where he fought against Berserk protagonist Guts.

History

The spirit of Soul Edge, Inferno, corrupted the mind of several people, one unfortunate person named Siegfried. He promised him that if he gathered enough souls, he will resurrect his dead father. However, Siegfried succumbed to the evil sword, and became the Azure Knight, Nightmare.

Nightmare would terrorize Europe for years, until Siegfried was able to separate himself from the evil sword. But it wasn't the end of Nightmare, as Inferno re-animated Siegrfried's discarded armor and used it to hunt down Siegfried and continue it's terror across Europe.
