Did you know?
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.

No Fatties
Takara's Genesis port of Samurai Shodown is missing Earthquake--arguably a "small" price to pay for graphics much closer to "arcade perfect" than those of the Super NES port.

This place is Hell
The fictional Latin American village known as Green Hell not only appears in Samurai Shodown games, but is also the setting for the 1989 SNK shooter Prehistoric Isle in 1930.
