Wan-fu (Chinese: 王虎; Pinyin: Wánghǔ; Cantonese Yale: Wong4 Fu2; Japanese: 王虎 Wanfū) is a character who was introduced in Samurai Shodown. He was modeled after Miyoshi Seikai, one of the warriors said to exist in the Ten Heroes of Sanada. He was removed from the series's lineup after Samurai Shodown II but is revived for his role in Samurai Shodown Sen. He is one of the few characters in the series to have a "joke" ending that breaks the fourth wall. Comically, he admits to the player that "there is no ending to [his] story".
