The event minigame is the heart and soul (heh) of Soul Fighter. Though some of the details change between Story, Arcade, and the Daily Challenge, the mechanics remain roughly the same—push the right buttons when prompted, build a huge combo, and crush your enemies.
Huh. Guess it puts the fighter in Soul Fighter, too!
How to Fight
There are 6 standard buttons: Up, Down, Left, Right, Attack 1, and Attack 2.
When the minigame begins, you'll be shown a set of 3–8 inputs that represent the order in which you must push those buttons. The next required input will always be highlighted, so it's easy to get back on track if you mess up. Each sequence is randomized and may include special prompts depending on the stage.
Press the right buttons in the correct order to launch an attack, which will:
- Deal 1 damage to your opponent
- Add 1 to your Combo
- Reduce the Player Turn Meter by 25
Press the wrong button and you'll stumble, which will
- Reset your Combo
- Lock all inputs for .5 seconds
It may sound simple, but your opponent will come at you with a few feints to keep things spicy! Such as…
A question mark? That's not one of your available buttons!
Whenever you see a question mark, that input will remain a mystery until it's time to push it, at which point you'll be shown the actual input! Be ready for anything, and you'll be ready for everything.
Surprise! It's Opposite (Input) Day!
Reverse inputs require the player to push the opposite of what is shown on screen in order to move onto the next input.
- Down = Up
- Up = Down
- Left = Right
- RIght = Left
- Attack 1 = Attack 2
- Attack 2 = Attack 1
If reverse input is enabled for a particular stage, then any of the standard 6 inputs has a chance to be reversed. The exact probability depends on the stage and difficulty.
It's also possible for an input to be both hidden and reversed. This is, after all, a tournament for only the world's greatest Soul Fighters!
Combos and Soul Frenzy
Your Combo continues to build so long as you enter inputs correctly and don't let your PTM run out. While getting a Combo is fun on its own and a key part of the Daily Challenge, perfection's biggest perk is unleashing Soul Frenzy!
Soul Frenzy is a special input that only appears once you've entered a certain number of perfect inputs in a row (the exact number changes depending on the stage). Achieve that, and your next button string will include a Soul Frenzy symbol as its last input.
Reach the Soul Frenzy icon with your combo yet unbroken and you'll automatically enter Soul Frenzy, where every button is the right button for 2 seconds!
You can even press all six buttons simultaneously during Soul Frenzy, so unleash your full button-mashing potential to maximize your combo and get that much closer to your NEXT Soul Frenzy.
You'll also deal a decent chunk of damage based on the number of buttons you manage to push:
Once Soul Frenzy is finished, your PTM restores to full and the game continues with your combo unbroken.
Player Turn Meter (PTM)
The Player Turn Meter (PTM) represents how much time you have to execute your attacks before the enemy strikes back (Except for in Daily Challenges). It's made of 100 Points and drains continuously at a rate of 10 Points per second.
Enter a set of inputs correctly, and you'll get 25 Points, buying you more time to enter more combos.
If the PTM reaches 0, your enemy will attack, reducing your HP by 1 and reseting your Combo. But don't give up! Enemy attacks also restore your PTM to 100, giving you a chance to dish out some revenge punches.
Be careful what you wish for—and what you fight for.
Draven entered the Tournament of Souls to make a name for himself, but when the results don't live up to expectations, it's time for some quiet introspection.
...Aww, who are we kidding?! It's time to double down and carve through the competition! Join Draven on his winding path to glory in the League of Legends: Wild Rift's Soul Fighter Event!
Navigating the Map
Your journey is laid out through a series of nodes that must be completed in order. There are two types of nodes:
|Node Symbol||What It Means|
Comic nodes give you front-row seats to Wild Rift's Soul Fighter's high drama, where you'll witness interactions between key characters and follow their progress as the plot unfolds.
And don't worry if you miss something—you can always revisit a dialogue node at a later time.
|Ready! Set! FIGHT! Combat nodes will drop you into the Wild Rift Soul Fighter combat minigame, where sharp reflexes and quick thinking are the keys to victory. They're also marked with three stars representing the game's three difficulty levels: Normal, Hard, and Soul Crushing. See how many you can fill up to increase your Soul Rating and earn additional Story Rewards!|
Your Soul Rating is a great way to earn extra loot and flex your skill in Story Mode. You Improve your Soul Rating by earning stars, and you can earn up to three stars per combat node (one for each difficulty).
Cool (C rank)
While Soul Rating's a good way to prove your prowess, Soul Charge is how you progress through the story!
Your Soul Charge is the best indicator of your overall Soul Fighter progress and dictates which stages you can access. You can increase it by playing matches or completing the Daily Challenge to earn Soul XP, which gets you 1 Soul Charge Level for 100 Soul XP.
Soul Charge Level Requirement
There are two boxes you have to check to progress through Story Mode:
- Complete all previous nodes
- Meet that node's Soul Charge requirement
|Node||Required Soul Charge|
Soul Charge Cap
You can only increase your Soul Charge up to a certain value depending on how much time has passed since the event began. This means you'll have to pace yourself if you jump in right when the event starts, but if you wait two weeks, then the sky (and 100 Soul Charge) is the limit!
|Date||Soul Charge Cap|
|Start of Event||10|
Once you hit the Soul Charge Cap, keep in mind that any additional Soul XP you earn will not be tracked if you continue to queue up.
How to Earn Soul XP
Win or lose, you'll be getting Soul XP just for playing.
…Though you will generally earn more for winning. It is a tournament, after all!
|Co-Op vs AI||N/A||20|

Blast through the Story Mode and wish you had more enemies to fight? Arcade is the mode for you!
Arcade Mode opens up once you hit Soul Charge Lv. 50 and receive your first Arcade Key, which you can use to unlock any one of the five Arcade champions.
Yasuo - Face your enemies with VERY little health. One mistake can cost you everything!
Draven - You'll have to think on your feet when it comes to Draven, as more and more of your button inputs will become hidden!
Irelia - Whoa—that's a LOT of HP. Time to chain those Soul Frenzies!
Xin Zhao - Only the quick and clever will survive when mystery and reverse buttons abound!
Nilah - Invert your way of thinking to take on Nilah's reverse-button-filled stages!
Although the specifics of each Champion's arcade experience differ, their reward tracks are identical:
|Node||Normal / First Time Rewards||Hard Rewards||Soul Crushing Rewards|
|1–3||100 Tokens||50 Poro Energy||25 Blue Motes|
|4||150 Tokens||50 Poro Energy||25 Blue Motes|
Keen on besting them all? Just keep building your Soul Charge to earn all five Arcade Keys!
The Daily Challenge unlocks after you complete Node 5 and is a great way to earn a lot of Soul XP in a short time—by PUNCHING A CAR.
While you'll still push the prompted buttons to pull off monster combos, Daily Challenges differ from Story/Arcade Mode in a few key ways:
- 30 second time limit
- No enemy attacks (it's a car)
- Score-based (Enemy HP doesn't matter!)
In other words, it's all about seeing how many points you can earn in a limited time! You'll earn a bonus multiplier after hitting a certain Combo and Soul Frenzy is still available, so precision is just as key as speed.
The higher your score, the more Soul XP you get. You can also attempt each Daily Challenge as many times as you like, though your max daily Soul XP earnings are capped at 200 for the first two weeks and 400 thereafter.
But you don't have to stop after hitting that cap! In fact, there's a Leaderboard celebrating each Challenge's top 200 players. See how high you can climb before the Leaderboard—and that day's Soul XP cap—reset every day at 00:00 UTC!
Most achievements can be unlocked just by playing Soul Fighter's three modes: Story, Arcade, and Daily Challenge. Glory can be found in any battle!

Soul Fighter Tag Duel Mode
Though this game mode is based on our Duel Mode, it's about three times as complex since...well, each player chooses three different champions! So let's talk over what other differences you can expect.
The game starts all champions at level 11 with pre-upgraded abilities and auto-purchased items according to their loadout. You also begin with two-out-of-three points of Energy, and it costs one Energy every time you switch champs. But don't worry! You regenerate one Energy every 20 seconds and your Energy increases by one point upon death, so you'll have plenty of opportunities to make use of your full roster.
Whenever you swap in a champion for the first time, they enter the fray with fresh cooldowns and the same percent health as the tagged-out champion. Any champions you swap out have their cooldowns tracked from that point, so while most standard abilities will be ready the next time they tag in, Ultimates usually will not.
You can also build a combo counter by quickly dealing damage with different abilities within a short time. What's the point of winning if you don't style on your opponent a bit, too?
The game ends when one player has died four times, which—like normal Duel Mode—may be expedited by a closing ring of fire if the match goes too long.
Finally, we've applied a flat damage and healing reduction across the board to open up more room for strategic gameplay.
