Samurai Shodown 6
Samurai Shodown 6 Endings
The strongest warrior in the Shiranui family, Gen-an. He retained the title, THE KING OF EVIL. But he just stayed home with his family, and helped his wife in the kitchen.

He helped the kids do their homework. And had a fabulous garden.

Gen-an lived a long, happy life, and became known as the Nicest King of Evil in the World.

Fun Facts
SS4 Cameos
@char=sieger_sas@, @char=genan_sas@, @char=earthquake_sas@, and @char=wanfu_sas@ have cameos in Samurai Shodown 4, all looking a little different than their last appearance.

Gen-an and Earthquake both appear in @char=genjuro_sas@'s ending, telling him to "come quietly, he calls for you." Who "he" is, we can't say (Ambrosia?). Genjuro dispatches them effortlessly.

Either Wan-Fu or Sieger may randomly appear after the credits if you clear the game within the time limit. They both say simply "........what?"
Mai Shiranui cameo?
Anybody who finished Samurai Shodown with Haohmaru or Gen-an might remember seeing Mai Shiranui in their ending sequences. She appears making a visit to our character's stages, and always ends up executing her Ryu En Bu attack. She seems to kill Gen-an with it, and the result with Haohmaru is unknown (the action freezed).
However, she might as well not be Mai Shiranui herself, since in the dialogue of the Game Boy version ending, she's just quoted as being "Woman" (other versions don't put a name to her words), and it should also be noted that Mai belongs to a different timeline than that of Samurai Shodown.
