Iroha (いろは, Iroha) is a character from the Samurai Shodown series. She is one of the main protagonists and new characters from Samurai Shodown VI, and is the first non-canonical character to have her canonical debut in Samurai Shodown (2019).

She is a very popular character in Japan, and stars in her own mobile game called Maid by Iroha. Another game based around her was scheduled for release on the Nintendo DS, but was canceled. She has also been added to a roster of usable characters in the Queen's Gate, which is an extension of the fantasy game series, Lost Worlds. She also has several different figurines, hard cast and otherwise, made in her image. And She has a toxic fandom and hatedom.

Why Iroha would not serve them as her master


  • Both sides don't seem to know that Iroha was loosely based on Tsuru no Ongaeshi than just an original character.


  1. Just like the most female characters They only like her because her sex appeal or her super move, It takes more than a pretty face to like a character you know.
  2. Some of them complain about her absence in SNK Heroines.
  3. They made bad ships such as Iroha x Ivy Valentine (Soul Calibur) and Iroha x Morrigan Aensland (Darkstalkers) without realizing she was with her unseen "master", thankfully it's rare.
    • If this wasn't enough they ship any characters in the series like Mina Majikina, Rimururu, Shizumaru or (rarely) Nakoruru/Rera and Shiki.
  4. Similar to other SNK female character, They are obsessed with her breast, her butt and her legs.
  5. They made a some bad/confusing fan-art like some ryona/wrestling arts where she gets beat up by characters from different franchises like Alex and Twelve from Street Fighter and King from Tekken.
  6. They are sexually attracted to her when she's only a fictional character.
  7. When she returns to Samurai Shodown (2019) some of them just praise the hell out of her. I know it's happy to see her again and she's attractive but still, she's not even a goddess.
  8. They think that all maids act like her when it's false.
  9. They try to be her master when it's impossible since she's only a character.


  1. Some Iroha's haters are apart of Edgelords, Nostalgia-tards, Moral Guardians and SJWs.
  2. Just like Camilla and Tharja Hatedoms They hate her because neither her sex appel or her super move when some different characters in the series or any SNK characters who have this trait take a good exemples like Shiki from SS64, Mina Majikina from SSV, Darli Dagger from SS2019, Mai Shiranui from Fatal Fury 2, Blue Mary from Fatal Fury 3, Angel from KOF2001, Luong from KOFXIV the list goes on.
  3. They think she's a copy of Shiki because of their hairstyles and they both use 2 swords which both of them are completely different.
  4. Similar to Giorno Giovanna Hatedom They keep calling her waifu/weeb bait to no end, which it's kinda annoying.
  5. Speaking of Nostalgia-tards and some Edgelords, they make excuses like "Garbage or Bland design" and "Unique, Not Garbage or Interesting designs" such as Charlotte, Gen-An, Cham Cham, Mina Majikina, Kazuki, Shiki, Sogetsu, the list goes on. Even the crappy ones like Kusaregedo?! Just wow.
    • On a simliar note; a GameFAQs user MyFinalFantasy made a dumb comments like “Even though Shiki was the best part of those games, I'd like to forget SamSho 64 ever existed. Also, fuck Iroha. We don't need no fanservice here.”, “You can't say that innocent ass slap is the same as getting butt naked while hacking a man up. Also, Mai has a personality, as compared to the waifu "serve my master" sterotyped shit.” and “No. Do you get sexual gratification out of watching Yuri lightly tap her ass? No. Does Mai get any more provocative than her idle stance? No. Iroha was made for the sole purpose of merchandise and to make weebs sweat with anticipation. Considering they used her once in a main series game, she was nothing more than an excuse for someone who was indifferent to the rich story and gameplay of SamSho to buy the game. Those other characters weren't made with the intent to increase sales, this one was.”, which it's ironic almost female characters in Fighting Games gets one especially in Sam Sho series. Some of them are actually obsessed Mai's breast or Yuri's butt slap other then Iroha's super move in any certain things. As for personality she barely had her personality despite it's non-canon dream match or rather underdeveloped. and as for merchandise, most characters gets any merchandise even for one game.
  6. They will attack anyone that likes her.
  7. They overreacted when she was number 1 poll for Samurai Shodown (2019) DLC. Even though she was in second place later on.
  8. They think that all Iroha fans or any fans of Samurai Shodown are weebs/otakus, not all of them are weebs or otakus especially any people calling Japanese people weebs, which it's just stupid.
    • On the similar side; Some people tells you that your not a Samurai Shodown fan or outright calls you a fake fan of the series. Which it's pretty immature and stupid.
  9. Some of them hate her because they hate "anime" maids when there are maids in Fighting Games that are still exist take a good example like: Marie from Skullgirls or Chiho Masuda and Kyoko Kirishima from Advanced V.G series.
    • Heck, even non-fighting games have maids as well such as Felicia and Flora from Fire Emblem Fates, Kirumi Tojo from Danganronpa, Sadayo Kawakami from Persona 5 or Sakuya Izayoi from Touhou.
  10. They hate her because they perfer (in a toxic manner) any female characters such as Charlotte, Nakoruru, Shiki or even Mina. or (rarely) any cast in SSVI either Andrew or Ochamaro.
  11. They think she's fanservice because that she's talking to the player and the most characters (including some characters that are fanservice) in Sam Sho series does have stories which it's kinda ridiculous.
  12. They complain when she returns in Samurai Shodown (2019).
  13. Some user on YouTube claims “Iroha: One of ruined characters of Samurai Shodown.” We wish were making this up.
  14. Some of them are apart of Anime Hatedom for obvious reasons. Some of them are unaware because Samurai Shodown series and SNK company are in Japan.
