Kannuki struck me as sort of a "status quo" hero for Bushido Blade. He was an ambiguous, and somewhat simple design in the first Bushido Blade... which, to his credit, potentially made him likeable in some ways. His redesign of Bushido Blade 2 was a big change to the design. First of all, his hair was definitely inspired by that of Jin Kazama... (Tekken 3 was a smash hit in arcades of early 1997, and Bushido Blade 2 was released in 1998, so the evidence is there.) :) 

Overall, he has the typical "Ryu" personality... which had already been done enough times in the fighting game realm. Even though it was cool for fans to see him return in Bushido Blade 2, his new design was overshadowed by some the other, more colorful personalities of the game.
