Soul Eater: Excalibur is the Greatest!

Would you wield his amazing power?


  If you knew of his glory, you'd be this excited too.
 If you knew of his glory, you'd be this excited too.

So, we've discussed various characters of Soul Eater before. Now, while I was thoroughly reprimanded for not including enough Death the Kid, the most serious omission went unnoticed. That is, of course, the most powerful, amazing weapon in all of Soul Eater... Excalibur!
 

But What/Who is Excalibur?

Don't let his cartoonish exterior fool you, Excalibur is, in fact, "the sword" from "the stone." Yes, Excalibur is the one weapon to rule them all. Armed with an impressive beard, he has been paired to influential figures of history has had to offer. You too could be a hero of legend, at the simple expense of dealing with the paltry 1000 tasks his wielder must perform. YES, that's all it takes, 1000, easy to remember tasks... including

 
  • Ensuring his mornings start with a cup of coffee
  • Offer a refreshing greeting upon his waking up 
  • When he hums a tune, you must not speak! 
  • Excalibur's birthday must be celebrated in a grand manner 
  • Excalibur's birthday is every day of the year
  • The highest class toilet must be prepared
  • Carrots are never permitted in his meals 
  • You must attend his daily 5 hour long story telling sessions
  • You must always walk 3 step behind Excalibur  
  • As a true hero, you must always tell the truth All food must be freshly prepared
  • You must always praise Excalibur Dehumidifier must be present in Excalibur's room


 
Got those ones? Well, there's only 987 more to go!
 

But why do I want to wield Excalibur?

 Its a trap!
 Its a trap!

You don't. No one does. The joke of it all is that it doesn't take a "True hero" to pull the sword from the stone. The true hero is someone who can actually put up with him. Despite the near limitless power he offers, no one seems to be willing go along with his insane commands. Its almost like a rite of passing, many meisters (including Stein, Death, and Black Star) have attempted to harness his power, only to end up in total failure. The sheer mention of his name will often induce severe reactions from his victims.
 
He's had such difficultly finding a master, that he even commissioned the printing of his "legend," to make him more desirable. Though, of course, he left out his 1000 tasks, though its questionable if he actually embellished on his power. 
 



 That's all folks!

Those episodes are great but I'm glad that they didn't use him a lot, otherwise it would had been really annoying.

You forgot his song! "Excalibuuuur, Excalibuuuur, from United King, I'm looking for him, I'm going to Californiaaaaaa..."

I would rather be tared and feathered than put up with him.

The Excalibur song is my favorite part.

Today's political candidates could learn much from this well dressed weapon of death.

Excalibur is my candidate for 2012. Though, to be honest, I think he's been involved in the political scene before.

 What a sharp looking "hat" you&squot;ve got there...
