Hoshi Hayashi (林保志 Hayashi Hoshi) is a character in the Soul series of the fighting games made by Toshiyuki Endo. She made her debut in Soul Calibur III, and has returned in Soul Calibur IV, Soul Calibur V, and Soul Calibur Endless Rage.

Physical appearanceEdit

Hoshi has brown eyes and two brown braids. She has a sweet and young face, similar to Abelia's. She has pale skin.


Soul Calibur IIIEdit

In Soul Calibur III, Hoshi's main weapon is Shiranui. A secret sword that is said to increase its shine and power in response to its wielder's mind. If one grips this weapon with strong feelings, it will surely respond in kind. It is rather old, and as such, it is somewhat weak against direct blows.

Soul Calibur IVEdit

Soul Calibur VEdit

Soul Calibur Endless RageEdit

Fighting StyleEdit

In Soul Calibur III, Hoshi uses a katana and fights with Tsujikiri-Ittou-Ryu. In Soul Calibur IV-V, her fighting style is changed from Tsujikiri-Ittou-Ryu to Tenpu-Kosai-Ryu-Kai. In Soul Calibur Endless Rage, her fighting style is the same from Soul Calibur 3.

Critical FinishEdit

Hoshi performs four quick slashes that briefly ignites the opponent and kills them instantly.

Critical EdgeEdit

Hoshi primes her sword while saying "I'll end this!". She then does an uppercut and slashes downwards, shouting "Brace yourself!" as she knocks down her opponent.


In Soul Calibur III and Soul Calibur Endless Rage, Hoshi wears a plum kimono with a slit in the right side, black gloves, white knee socks, and plum sandals. In Soul Calibur IV, she wears a different robe, except it has a slit on the left side. In Soul Calibur V, her robe has two slits on each side.
