Wake the fuck up, Samurai. We have a city to burn.
~ Johnny to V in Cyberpunk 2077 - his most famous quote
Johnny Silverhand is one of the most important and playable character(s) in the entire universe of the Cyberpunk series, influential musician, Rockman, vocalist and guitarist of the band Samurai. While fighting against the evil people, he is also a fighter against any evil.

In Cyberpunk 2077, he is portrayed by Keanu Reaves, who also played Ted, Johnny Utah, Neo, and John Wick.

Origin and connections

Johnny was a war veteran in Central America, but then he changed his mind to Rocker. He became the leader of the popular Samurai group. He is famous for his musical talent and many short, quickly decaying relationships. His partners were Alt Cunningham and Rogue.


Cyberpunk 2020

In the story "Do not give up" is described the story of Arasaka's girlfriend Silverhand, Alta Cunningham, the highly talented Netrunnerka. Arasaka needed Alta to program a program called "Soulkiller", which could easily bend the brains of selected Netrunners. Thomas, Rogue and Santiago helped in the reflection of Johnny. Alta, wanting to outsmart Arasaka, transferred her consciousness to the Web. However, it was detected and it was closed there, and the body was "killed". At the same time, Silverhand attacked the residence with relief, seeing the body of his beloved shot Toshiro-chan who was in this room, who managed the action of the kidnapping of Alta.

Firestorm: Shockwave

In the second part of the Firestorm series, Silverhand's death is described during the assault on Arasaki's main headquarters, but the bodies are not found, and there are rumors about Night City that he is still in hiding.

Cyberpunk 2077

Johnny will appear in the game, possibly as the deuteragonist.

The trailer shared on E3 2019, where it shows Silverhand at the end when he comes and helps V, the titular protagonist of the game, when he was left to die after being chased attack by a group of men. He tells V to get up and get ready to battle against those who tried to kill him.
