* YamatoNadeshiko: Kind, domestic, submissive but not exactly weak, obedient to her master, feminine yet ''very'' capable of holding her own in battle. [[{{ShapeshiftingLover}} Her true form as crane helps too.]] Pretty much the ''only'' non-YN trait she has is her revealing wardrobe.

->An... uh... goblin-like monster who claims himself 'The King of Demons' and does his best to do evils here and there, while being quite inept at it. Has a hot, very much humanly wife named Azami, and she bore him a lot of kids... LIKE HIM. During the first game, he is killed, but the second game had him resurrected by Mizuki. Eventually, however, under the begging of Azami, Gen-An stops fighting and settles down. Hinted to be the distant ancestor of that {{Stripperiffic}} {{Ninja}} [[VideoGame/FatalFury Mai]] [[MsFanservice Shiranui]].

This is a list of characters in ''VideoGame/SamuraiShodown''. Characters' names are listed in Japanese fashion (family name first, given name last).



-> '''Voiced by:''' [[note]]Masaki Sasaki, Creator/DaikiNakamura (64 games, DistantFinale and [=CvS2=]), Creator/BinShimada (Drama [=CDs=]), Creator/ToshiyukiMorikawa (''Samurai Shodown Oni'' pachislot game)[[/note]]

->Our main hero who's out mainly so [[BloodKnight he can get some kicks out of fighting those who are strong]]. Likes to booze off with drinks and of course, fight. As a young man, he once lost against Jubei and gets pumped up to get stronger. After said loss, he studied under Nicotine alongside Genjuro, and ends up being chosen as the school's successor much to Genjuro's dismay. In his travels to find worthy opponents, he finds himself entangled with many events, first by Amakusa, then adopting Shizumaru, helping to tame his demon self, eventually later being targeted by Mizuki for his soul, and then getting captured and enslaved by Yuga, until someone (either Nakoruru, or even Genjuro) breaks him free and later, makes an inspiration for Takechiyo in his quest to fight Golba. Oh, and he's got a YamatoNadeshiko lover named Oshizu.

->The heroine of the series, most of the time the one being concerned in defeating the BigBad (compared to Haohmaru, who's in just for the fight itself). She is a priestess of the Ainu tribe who fights in order to protect Mother Nature herself, residing in the village of Kamui Kotan. Usually, she abhors fighting , but eventually she comes to terms on it and becomes more eager to fight, if it is to protect. She's usually accompanied with her pet hawk Mamahaha. Has a little sister named Rimururu. As it turned out, she made a contact with the spirit of nature to become their champion. She aided Haohmaru in his quests, but after the battle against Mizuki, she [[HeroicSacrifice sacrificed herself]] to restore the harmony of Nature.

->SNK retconned her "death" in ''Edge of Destiny'' (which is after the 64 series). She's still alive but mostly "sleeps" within the forest, and her spirit only wakes up whenever there is trouble against Nature. Her status as a nature spirit also allows her to travel through time, thus enabling her to appear in her youthful self in ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters XIV'' when she noticed a space-time crack in her realm.

-> '''Voiced by:''' [[note]]Atsushi "Monster" Maezuka, Creator/ToshihikoSeki (in the Dengeki drama CD series), Creator/WataruTakagi (in {{the movie}}).[[/note]]

->American sailor/surfer dude turned into McNinja, fighting [[JusticeWillPrevail for justice]]. He trained under the same master as Earthquake, and completed his training to become a full fledged ninja. He is mostly accompanied with his pet dog Poppy.

(To his credit, Galford seems to understand that and doesn't stalk her or anything.) For some reason, has an ability to generate lightning. Although at first seems like someone who doesn't have a focus except enforcing justice here and there, ''Edge of Destiny'' reveals that he had a father [[GenerationXerox who was like him, a justice lover]]... who got killed by Draco. Since he's also, well, evil, Galford sets out to kick his ass, for both justice and revenge.
