SoulCalibur V Characters Guide: Maxi

Maxi is one of the confirmed SoulCalibur V playable characters who also appeared in other Soul Calibur video games such as SoulCalibur, SoulCalibur II, III and IV as well as SoulCalibur: Broken Destiny.


Born in the Japanese city Okinawa, Maxi traveled along his father, learning how to use the nunchaku so he could defend himself.

In one of his many travels, he met Zhang Wu, a man who was wielding a bladed nunchaku and challenged him to a fight suffering a humiliating defeat.

In the remaining days of that journey, Maxi improved his combat abilities thanks to the new style that Zhang Wu taught him.

When his father died, Maxi took his boat to sail towards West along with his crew.

At an Indian port, Maxi joined forces with Kilik, defeating Astaroth and his group of golems who were trying to take control of the boat.

Astaroth eventually escaped and both Maxi and Kilik decide to travel together to the Ostrheinsburg Castle. On their way, they met Xianghua (a member of the Ming Dynasty Imperial Guard) who decided to accompany them.

Unfortunately Maxi’s traveling days were over after Ares had the ground swallow him, but after four years, cured by a fragment of the Soul Edge, Maxi restarted his search for Astaroth.

During his journey he came across Tira, who happened to know about the warrior with the axe. She told Maxi that the monster was getting stronger and that he wouldn’t stand a chance against Astaroth without wielding the Soul Edge. Tira also told him that both Astaroth and the sword were in Ostrheinsburg.

Before the events of SoulCalibur V, Edge Master told Maxi how to control the evil within him. Grateful for all that Edge Master did for him, Maxi agrees to mentor Xiba in order to save a good friend, Kilik.

Weapons and Moves (Attacks)

Speed is Maxi’s strong point along with his nunchaku, so players who control Maxi can perform a series of combos that inspire fear to their opponents.
