Soul of Chaos is the EX Burst for Garland, where he knocks his foe back and raises his sword. The player must press repeatedly to fill a meter on the screen as Garland charges energy. If filled, Garland will repeatedly attack his opponent with twin swords, hits them several times with the chain, stabs them with the spear, then swings his axe downwards hitting the opponent multiple times. He ends the EX Burst by spinning to unleash two powerful sword blows.
Soul of Chaos returns as Garland's EX Burst in an unchanged form.
Soul of Chaos is a unique gimmick that rewards the player by playing offensively by increasing their attack power the longer amount of time they attack. The Soul of Chaos status has two variations, the first increases attack power by an average of 9.375% (1.09375 times), while the second stage increases attack power by an average of 15.625% (1.15625 times), respectively. Though this may increase attack power, the status wanes if the character is not attacking.
