Soul Edge and Soul Calibur... if a human were to absorb the power contained within these two swords... Zasalamel put this idea into action. It was an idea no normal person would ever consider, but for Zasalamel, it was his chance to attain true death.

He hid behind the scenes during the battle between the cursed sword and the spirit sword, appearing only when their powers reached their zenith. Then, using a secret art, he connected his body to the world of the abyss and created a jet-black magnet that absorbed all forms of energy. His plan was to use this to draw out the essences of the two swords and take them into his body. It was an act that only Zasalamel, with the knowledge gained from an eternity of lifetimes, could have performed.

Clusters of light, most pure and fierce, were released from the swords. For a moment, they seemed to struggle as if they had a will of their own, but then proceeded to be absorbed into Zasalamel's body. Power coursed through his entire body, and he began to transform.

At the end of an experience completely different from his countless rebirths, he had obtained sharpness of senses, overflowing power, and a voice that thundered like an echoing roar. Zasalamel thought that, having acquired this power, his goal had been achieved. The peace and death that he had sought was right before his eyes. But deep within him, something other than himself was beginning to awaken. He had invited into himself an inhuman power.

Hmm, another fighting game boss named Abyss? Funny Namco... as if they never played MvC2 before? Or maybe they want to do a crossover. That'd be cool. Heh. Anyhow, this Abyss is actually one of the most sinister fighting game bosses I've ever seen! "Let the power of hellfire sink into your soul!" ....Only a truly evil bastard could get away with saying something like that.

Overall, he's a solid design for a Soul Calibur boss and I'd say he's one of the more entertaining fighting game bosses in recent times.
