So he's basically you.


Can you find Afro at modelmayhem.com? Didn't think so.

No one gives a shit if you're better looking than a character that does not exist. Only if it's a fictional female character that they want to to be played by a chick that looks like a porn star and not "ugly".

People do tend to talk strangely when their cranium has been haphazardly inserted into their rectum. Walking must certainly be a bitch to do, too.

I was thinking since Motara went down quite easily, how it would be good if there was a more powerful Centaur than Motaro. What kind of modified Centaur would u like to see. There are lots of things they can do like make a Two-headed Samurai Centaur with plant manipulation (nature powers) or Earth Powers like Tremor. He can be the sub-boss.

There are plenty of samurai representatives in the friggin series as it is. Oh wait, you want an archetype samurai which looks the part by judgment from your shallow mind then I hope NRS considers bringing this guy into the next if not the following installment



Oh wait *headsmack* he's not like your precious silver samurai or like this annoying picture you constantly shove down our throats

I find it ironic how the first pic says, I will kill u with lightning speed. Because that's what the second picture looks like. A Samurai that's super speed.

To sum up this discussion:
Hankypanky: "MK needs a samurai"

Everyone else: "We already have a bunch of people who are samurais"

HK: "They don't look like a samurai therefore they are not samurai"

Everyone: groans

Me: I think Kenshi already is a Samurai. If he wore armor (flashy silver for Hanky) then would you say he is still not a samurai?

I'm really tempted to know exactly how many people here know what a samurai is for those who actually WANT one in the game. I mean, there's more to a character than just wearing flashy armor, and we have that already... You have Hotaru.

The only problem is this one guy (name not given). What exactly does he want for a samurai?
Should a samurai carry a katana with japanese ancestry? We have Kenshi
Should he have armor that looks like a samurai and wields a samurai weapon other than a sword? We have Hotaru
Should he be like a ronin, used to have some form of honor before a downfall and wears japanese-like clothing? Dairou

Everyone has made valid points saying we already have samurais. The Dairou opinions even work. The reason they don't look exactly like it is probably because the developers don't want them to look like a standard samurai. NRS wanted to make their own style and tried not to look like a stereotypical samurai (i think).

And they shouldn't have to look like what a samurai looks like. I'm fine with characters looking different but act upon what they are. Just because we have several characters who are portrayed as the series' samurais who don't look like them, why should they?

A good example, for me that is, is Warcraft. I main as a priest, and in the game, tier sets makes your character stands out as to what your class is, or at least tries to. The tier set my character is wearing in my avatar is the only one that gives me this holy vibe where as the other tier sets don't. They don't need to look like angelic holy creatures just because they possess holy powers. (Although, in my opinion, I haven't like a single tier set since tier 5 - Avatar) Just like how Warlocks don't need to look like witches and warriors don't need to look like they're knights in shiny armor. But of course, they tend to make outrageous armor sets for their characters so it's not the best example to go off of. But the point I am trying to make, as said in the first paragraph, we don't need to have these characters look exactly like what they're portraying as.

I mean, it's not hard to see who's who in this game despite that they don't look like what they're portraying. It's not hard to see what characters are samurais and who's not. You just know based off of the characteristics they have, and this is just being said for those who question, "why should characters not look like what they portray," as an argument in return of this.

IceBaby seems to be going off on one. I want a Samurai that looks like a Samurai.

I've said this before (MKDA to MKD to MKA) and I'll keep saying it untill I see it.

MK needs a samurai character. An evil one (undead). Yoshimitsu from tekken, and Doku from Ninja Gaiden are perfect examples.

Hotaru and Dairou are the closest to be considered as samurai, but not close enough.

Kenshi & Dairou is an obvious depiction of samurai as well. Hell, Raiden has a samurai like costume in Deception & same goes for his alternate on Deadly Alliance.

You know what everyone? We are not gonna get through to hanky. It's like talking to a rock. So the best thing to do is stop going to pretty much anything he wants that we think are good enough.

Well according to hanky, that is not a samurai. He says he looks like a final fantasy character.

But in the very first post he said this
