Executed by performing two quarter-circle forward? motions and pressing kick, Rose creates afterimages of herself that copy her normal attacks (with a slight time delay), being essentially similar to a Custom Combo. The effect lasts until a predetermined amount of time expires, or Rose is hit.
These afterimages will attack a split-second after each other, extending combos and increasing hits while allowing more cancel opportunities.
- Soul Illusion has the same effect like most V-Triggers in Street Fighter V, improving character's attacks, for example Chun-Li's Renkiko or Cammy's Delta Drive-
- The word "Illusion" of Soul Illusion plus the word "Spark" of Soul Spark, were the inspiration for the name of the first Rose's Ultra Combo in the Street Fighter IV games, Illusion Spark.
- Soul Illusion has the same effect as the V-ISM mode.
