Funny / Samurai Shodown

Go To

  • Some of the Seppukus are surprisingly funny.
  • Gen-an certainly qualifies in several of his winposes.
    • To start, some of his poses imitate Haohmaru's, like throwing his claw gauntlet to the air to have it land back on his hand.
      • That one in particular has a variation in II in which the weapon lands on the floor instead of his hand, at which point Gen-an scratches his butt, then grabs the claw and exits.

    • Gen-an's children, who are basically Mini-Me versions of him, comedy relief value included. In one of his poses, they appear below his clothes and celebrate his win with him, and in his ending in II they steal his claw, and Gen-an starts chasing them around, trying to get it back.
  • When someone on Twitter complained about how Samurai Shodown would be at EVO 2019 instead of Super Smash Bros. Melee, the official Twitter responded by suggesting not to use ranged attacks.
  • Suzu from Edge of Destiny is way out of her depth with her giant sword, but it makes it all the more funny when she wins with her wild, uncoordinated swinging.
  • Ruixiang's ending in 2019. It seems like she's finally going to be able to resume her studies and take a break from fighting... and then the Emperor summons her and reveals that he was impressed enough with her previous job that he's sending her back to Japan for a new mission. Ruixiang's bewildered face and quote (if you clear the story with no continues) just scream "Ah shit, here we go again..."

How well does it match the trope?
