Though Mitsurugi has a reputation as a basic, well-balanced character, he brings some new tricks to the table in Soulcalibur VI. His new Relic iaido stance provides some new mixup options as well as a way to express his hatred for projectiles. He also bears a new powerup mechanic, Shura Blade, which unlocks some upgrades to a few moves.
After landing his Critical Edge (or certain other attacks) in a round, Mitsurugi powers up his sword with the new Shura Blade buff. This buff gives him access to a few new attacks, including a new very powerful i12 knockdown mid, 236B+K. Shura Blade, once unlocked, will last until the end of the round.

|Heishiro Mitsurugi relied on his sword to see him through the turbulence of the warring states period in his homeland, Japan. However, with the revolutionary introduction of the rifle (known as "Tanegashima") from abroad, he felt his blade was no longer up to scratch, and so departed for foreign lands in search of Soul Edge.|
