So I guess SNK realized that there really weren't any Native Americans in the Samurai Shodown series. A character like Black Hawk seems like natural fit for the series... but his appearance just seems forced. He doesn't even appear to have a role in the storyline; it just seems like he was added to the game last minute.

Double Tomahawks too? Too much Chief Thunder inspiration going on here. As a traditional design, he's not too bad... but SNK definitely could've made him more exciting on so many levels.
