Do we need to bring politics into fighting games? No. But this "warrior president" of the USA is a pretty entertaining... for Samurai Shodown. I was entertained at least. The series had its fair share of "interesting" designs by the time of SS6. Some hit, some miss. As a unique character archetype in the series (an American solider), Andrew stands out right away. His bayonet weapon style is a unique element to the series, and also has its place in history in regards to ancient Japan. Makes sense.

Andrew's overall animations & moveset could be better in SS6... but the dude only appeared in one game. Give'm a revamp SNK! Andrew would be a good addition to any roster, even a SNK dream match crossover of sorts. I'd be entertained. Last but not least, Andrew's dishonorable use of a gun also makes him a fun opponent to defeat with a proper samurai weapon. >;)
