Haohmaru is the protagonist of the Samurai Shodown series. He is a lone and powerful samurai who loves to eat, drink sake, and seeks battling powerful opponents for thrills. He travels across the land in order to hone his sword fighting skills. Back when he was much younger, he challenged Jubei, who effortlessly defeated him. Since then, he left his village to challenge strong opponents to refine his skills. During his travels, he met Nicotine, who took him in and made him one of his students. When Shiro Tokisada Amakusa appeared back into the world, Haohmaru set out to eliminate Amakusa before he was able to cause despair across the country, as well as, test his own strength. With the aid of Nakoruru, he was able to kill Amakusa. Years later, after defeating Mizuki and Yuga, he's settled in a temple with Mikoto as his adopted niece.
