** Mina is pretty much a OneSceneWonder, only canonically appearing in one game (and the same game had her [[spoiler:''DrivenToSuicide'']]) and just making obligatory appearance in the non-canon dream match game, but her tremendous Woobie qualities and adorable look secured her popularity that she even appeared in ''[[Anime/QueensBlade Queen's Gate: SpiralChaos]]'' alongside the aforementioned Cham-Cham and Iroha (including Nakoruru would have been a complete overkill). It also helps that she's one of the first attempts at putting a literal archer that doesn't mostly clobber her enemies close range in a fighting game gives her points of uniqueness.

Added DiffLines:

* CompleteMonster: ''Literally'' Kusaregedo. He was once an average, "kind" old man (with cannibalistic tendencies) that got transformed into an unholy creature after his death. He goes on to stalk a little girl (Rimururu) after picking up on her scent in hopes of devouring her, but runs into his daughter, Hakana, instead, who pleads with him. He feeds on her in the end. His current whereabouts are unknown.


Added DiffLines:

* PlayTheGameSkipTheStory: This series has a ''major share'' of [[{{Squick}} disturbing plot devices and content]] that may leave lying awake in the night, and even the violence ''within'' the game can be enough to make you squeamish.. If you're faint of heart or just ate recently, then please...skip the story, just play the game, at your own risk.

* EnsembleDarkhorse: Tachibana Ukyo, a {{Badass}} swordsman afflicted with tuberculosis, was intended for death early on in the series, when that didn't stick, they make him irrelevant to the plot thanks to Genjuro. However, due to popularity among fans, he was not killed off and has appeared throughout the series, despite the minimum roles. Most of the latter Samurai Shodown game stories are always set in a timeline where they can always include Ukyo.

** Nakoruru, a nature-protecting priestess, whose popularity grew to the levels of national idol in Japan and other asian countries . Out of Samurai Shodown fanart found on the net, around 70-80% is dedicated to Nakoruru; and in Japan big companies compete over releasing Nakoruru dolls. She may be the main heroine of ''VideoGame/SamuraiShodown'', but in terms of the whole SNK (whose biggest draws are mostly ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters'') and Japan overall? Yeah. To the point she even gets integrated into KOF canon by appearing in ''XIV''

* HilariousInHindsight: Hanzo's finishing move is a ''VideoGame/MortalKombat9'' -style X-ray move. Even better, ''[=MK9=]'' was the installment that revealed that Scorpion's real name is Hanzo.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: Ukyo Tachibana, was originally written as a rival to Haohmaru but he was going to die due to having tuberculois. However Ukyo got so popular SNK didn't kill him off but tried to replace him with Genjuro as Haohmaru's rival but Ukyo stuck around in the series anyways. Nowadays it is interpreted that Ukyo is Haohmaru's friendly rival while Genjuro is Haohmaru's "not-so" friendly rival.

* TheWoobie: Shizumaru, Jushiro and Mina are shining examples of this trope. ''Specially'' Mina, [[spoiler: who ends up ''commiting suicide''.]]
