The Shugoki

Faction: Samurai
Type: Heavies
Weapons: Kanabō

The Shugoki are one of the Heroes for the Samurai.

Shugoki appear slow and cumbersome. Don’t let that fool you -- they possess the strength of a demon and an unbreakable will. It takes incredible fortitude to be the guardians of your people. You must defend them at all costs and put their needs above your own. This has never been an issue for the Shugoki. Their weapon of choice seems unwieldy. But in their hands, it is as deadly and precise as any blade.

Fighting Style

The Shugokis are the disruptor Tank. They absorb a lot of hits thanks to their high health and passive uninterruptible stance which allows a bit more freedom while attacking. He's excellent at dealing with crowds with his massive kanabo, but he's very slow, both in movement and attack.



The Shugoki are powerful beings, who possess the strength of a demon. And a demons will. As an act of repentance, acceptance, or perhaps a feeling of obligation with their condition, the strongest man the organization can find is taken in the Shugoki are rare simply because few people even meet the requirements to join, and fewer have the will.

Like a Sumo wrestler their body is molded, with exercise and food to build both strength and mass. They wield a weapon with the goal of an unstoppable momentum, and skin too thick for a sword to cut through. As humiliation for their condition or perhaps respect for their power, their mask bears a likeness to demons.

Story campaign

In the Samurai chapters, the Shugoki named Okuma is an ally of the player, who assumes the role of either the Orochi or Kensei, Ayu.
