She is the princess of a foreign country, orphaned when her parents' ship was raided ten years ago. She washed ashore the beaches of Japan and was adopted by a daimyo who resides in Amori. One day, ten years later, she found Takechiyo along the shoreline to her home and nursed him back to health. After hearing that the ship he stowawayed on collided with a ship bearing a particular crest, Suzuhime runs away from home two months before the game begins in order to pursue Golba.

It is revealed in her story that it was Golba who killed her parents in the raid during her childhood. He reasons that he did it as a loyal member of the Lesphia kingdom as he wished to protect the country's military strength, something her father's reign of peace wouldn't allow. Her sword is a country treasure and he needs it to claim ownership of Lesphia. After she defeats Golba, she briefly wonders if she should return to her home country or her home in Japan. After Takechiyo joins her, Suzuhime decides to stay by his side as his support, hoping that he finds an answer to his life of swordplay.

Samurai Shodown Sen




Page Updated:  April 2nd, 2014

SNK chose Suzuhime as one of the poster characters for Samurai Shodown Sen... and I don't blame them. She has a catchy appearance, and is easily one of the better "new" designs to come out of Sen. Her small stature contrasts her ridiculously large sword... which seems to be the general theme of her fighting style. She can move that sword surprisingly fast, and she's got some pretty cool attacks. However, I expected a bit more originality out of her fighting style. There's definitely something "missing" about her design... especially when you compare her to the awesome female warriors who have come before her in the series.
