Haohmaru is the main protagonist of the Samurai Shodown series of fighting games.
In the Japanese version, he was voiced by Masaki Usui who replaced with Hiroyuki Koga and Daiki Nakamura in the video games and Shingo Katori in the movie. In the English version of the movie, he was voiced by Milton Lawrence.
Haohmaru is a lone samurai who travels to perfect his skills. Back when he was much younger, he challenged Jubei and got defeated badly. Since then, he left his village to challenge strong opponents to refine his skills. During his travels, he met Nicotine and became one of his students. When Amakusa appeared back into the world, Haohmaru set out to kill Amakusa as he was a strong opponent. He killed Amakusa with help from Nakoruru, Hanzo, Galford, Charlotte, and Ukyo.
The same year, he ran into Shizumaru who's village was destroyed by the demon Zankuro. He took care of Shizumaru and helped him find Zankuro. A year later, he was attacked by a demon possessed man during his sleep. Haohmaru easily kills the attacker and tells Nicotine about the attack. Nicotine warns Haohmaru that he must not get involved with the demons.
But Haohmaru ignores the warning and sets out to kill the source of the attack. During his travel, he was attacked by Mizuki but was saved by Amakusa. With help from Nakoruru, he was able to defeat Mizuki and seal off Makai.
Confident in his abilities, Haohmaru enjoys the thrill of fighting against strong opponents.
Seeking enlightenment with each encounter, he constantly journeys in order to improve himself. As he gets older, he feels less inclined to fight and will try to avoid it if possible.
Outside of battle, Haohmaru is a crude but easy-going man, caring only for sake and food. He has a romantic interest in a simple girl named Oshizu ("O" added as a honorific prefix).
- His character was based on Miyamoto Musashi.
