Hanma Yagyu is one of the heroes from the Samurai Shodown video game series.
Hanma is an expert inventor of the Yagyu clan. One day, his boss ordered him to observe a hostile family. In order to do this, he sneaked into the team in the name of the princess guard.
The princess immediately discovered that Hanma was a delightful character because of his smiling face and appointed him as her private bodyguard. However, one day, the princess's father told Hanma to investigate the mysterious puppeteer.
Shortly before he left, he created a version of his own robot called Karakuri Hanma to ensure the safety of the princess. However, because he was too enthusiastic, he made a mistake in programming, causing it to attack her. Realizing what was happening, he was forced to destroy his creation and save her.
Hanma is an amicable man, always seen to be smiling. He bears a caring heart towards the princess and his sovereign.
