Samurai Shodown: All Super Specials And Lightning Blade Attacks

Watch Samurai Shodown’s sword-swinging warriors paint the town red


No doubt about it, being a samurai is messy work. And nobody knows that better than the fearsome fighters of SNK’s Samurai Shodown. We at Hey Poor Player have sifted through the viscera and compiled all of the game’s bloody Super Specials and Lightning Blade Attacks for its 13 playable characters so you can witness them in all of their gory glory.

Samurai Shodown is now available on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. For more on the game, be sure to check out our full review of the latest entry in SNK’s long-running fighting game series here.

So, which of the characters’ Super Specials is your favorite? Personally, I think Galford’s tag-team spinning blade attack with his trusty pup Poppy is the best of the blood-soaked bunch. Though Shiki’s sultry smooch-turned-throat slash is a close second. Be sure to let us know in the comments below.

Frank has been the caffeine-fueled evil overlord of HeyPoorPlayer since 2008. He speaks loudly and carries a big stick to keep the staff of the HPP madhouse in check. A collector of all things that blip and beep, he has an extensive collection of retro consoles and arcade machines crammed into his house. Currently playing: Chorus (XSX), Battlefield 2042 (XSX), Xeno Crisis (Neo Geo)
