A martial "artist" if I've ever seen one... Heh. While not exactly practical (unless there's some secret blade hidden in that paintbrush weapon), Taizan's weapon of choice is definitely unique. Taizan had a lot of potential as a new Samurai Shodown character, but since he only appeared in SS64-2... his design obviously didn't have a chance to go very far, unfortunately. I'm actually really surprised SNK didn't bring him back in any future installment.

Sadly, he's a pretty forgettable character..... No really, even as a huge Samurai Shodown fan myself, I have to admit I've forgotten about Taizan's existence several times. That's why SNK should bring this guy back. He's cool AND he does commissions! The dude needs to make a buck!
