Youkai Kusaregedo




Kusaregedo was once an ordinary man who lived a regular life with his daughter Hakana. They lived in happiness together for a time and Hakana came to respect her father as a kind man. One day, Kusaregedo obtained an atrocious hunger for human flesh (especially the flesh of children). He now was feared as a cannibal. When it came time for him to die, he was punished for his cannibalism by being transformed into a demon. Kusaregedo was given an even greater hunger for flesh than ever before, thus he came to be known as a fearful being who spread fear and death wherever he went. Hakana weeps for her father's horrid mutation and now tracks down Kusaregedo in an attempt to bring back the man she once cherished. Kusaregedo, in Samurai Spirits 5, is hunting for Rimururu in order to devour her.

Kusaregedo is the stuff of nightmares. A horribly disturbing design in more ways than one. Besides being the ugliest fighting game characters of ALL TIME, he acts retarded, sounds retarded, and is just plain retarded-looking. To top it all off, he has really shitty in-game animation... like that helps anything! As a huge Samurai Shodown fan since the first game, I was disgusted when this fat, ugly bastard appeared in SS5. Just yuck.

As far as "shock value" goes... I guess he's not a total failure as a design? -_- He will turn heads when he's on screen, that's for sure. I suppose slicing him in half with pretty much anyone else in the game can also be mildly satisfying, so perhaps he is good for something. I guess the dev-team decided they needed a new "freak" for the series, but I think they would've been much better off bringing back Gen-An in SS5... that guy at least has personality! In closing, I don't think there was any need for such an ugly "monster" in the series. (Seriously what were they smoking?) If Samurai Shodown ever makes a next-gen comeback, they better not bring back this piece of crap. Thanks SNK.
