As a non-playable
secret character in the first game, Hongou had a naturally cool aura about him.
He had a pretty cool costume too. However, in the sequel, Hongou pretty much
turned into the token Native American fighter archetype (with a little samurai
mixed in). Overall, they could've made him into a better design. The best part
of his Bushido Blade 2 appearance is probably that he uses tomahawks as
his sub-weapon (in BB2). Personally, I think his BB1 appearance
was cooler... and they probably shouldn't have changed the design so much.
