Poppy is a dog Galford Weiler adopted before he departed for Japan. She grew up during Galford's training and became his loyal companion. In her ending for Samurai Shodown V, she sacrifices herself to save Galford while he was saving one of her puppies. In honor of her memory, Galford renames one of her puppies in her name. Poppie assists Galford in most installments of the Samurai Shodown series... but in Samurai Shodown 5 and 6, Poppie can also fight on her own.

Poppie made a great accompaniment to Galford. The duo made a considerable impact in the early Samurai Shodown series, and some of Poppie's original moves were simply epic... Super-high-flying-doggie-piledriver FTW!!! lol.

Galford's design was complimented greatly by this lil fella, but I never expected SNK to actually feature Poppie as a playable character on his own in Samurai Shodown 5 & 6. Obviously more of a joke than anything else. Poppie's stand-alone movelist is a bit uninspired, and needless to say he worked better as an accompaniment to Galford.
