Sorry Lizard penis warriors but a notice on Soul Calibur 6's website warns that inappropriate custom characters risks a ban from online features

No more lizards...

If you've been playing Soul Calibur 6 online, there's a good chance you've ran into players using a lizard with some rather... inappropriate customizations. Needless to say, some players have been reporting that this feature is ruining the online experience since hitboxes and hurtboxes are altered. This is immediately obvious when the opponent is playing as a giant cube...

While some apparently find the concept of a Lizard penis warrior to be comedic, it appears that the developers of the game do not share in this amusement. Evidently, they've begun taking actions against this type of behavior.

According to Wonkey of Avoiding the Puddle, a new notice is present on the Japanese Soul Calibur 6 website. Players are being warned that those that create inappropriate custom characters will risk being banned from online features.

Although it's not outright stated what "inappropriate custom characters" the website is referring, we're fairly sure that these Lizards fall under this category. Online interactions may not be rated by the ESRB, but the sighting of these characters are likely to ward off many from playing the game.

Thus far, there's been no announcements regarding the usage of custom fighters in ranked mode. At the very least, this notice is at least making it known that the developers are aware of what's happening in-game.

If you have a custom combatant or two that has the potential of offending others, it probably isn't worth it to take them online anymore.

Don't worry: the below image has nothing that can be considered NSFW. It's just Wonkey's tweet that translates what is said on Soul Calibur's website.
