Goku from original Dragon Ball also run this way when he was kid.
I just watched the ending credits from Star Fox 64 and i don\'t see Falco running this way, but the article here mentions he does.
I'd always assumed the reason samurai are depicted running like this is that it does look like one of the few safe ways to run with an unsheathed sword.
I've removed this from the main page. It does not explain in enough detail. It was originally under the Touhou example.
