Mina Majikina (真鏡名 ミナ, Majikina Mina) is one of the new characters of the Samurai Shodown series introduced in Samurai Shodown V.

According to the game's creators, Mina was created to be the "polar opposite to Nakoruru" and as the "new heroine" to the series. They extended these keywords to everything, including fighting style, weaponry, and clothing. Though she drifted slightly away from her original image, Mina became a favorite to them and they expressed an interest to implement her into more games. She has made an outside appearance in the spin off series Queen's Gate.


She is blessed since birth with powerful spiritual energy and was sent away from her home to train in the art of exorcising demons. Her village revered her as a kaminchu (goddess) but also shunned her as they were in fear of her powers. As a result of her isolation, Mina is unable to express emotions.

One day, she departs her village to destroy an ayakashi (a certain kind of yokai). Upon her victory, she senses a powerful and evil force in her village but returns to see everything in ruins and all the inhabitants dead. In the wreckage, she finds a seemingly harmless being named Chample to whom she grew to endear. Taking her new friend in her arms, she is determined to eliminate as many demons as possible, starting with Gaoh. However, she eventually comes to the conclusion that Chample is the demon that destroyed her village. In her ending, she kills Chample to avenge the villagers; it's then implied that she commits suicide afterwards.

On Samurai Shodown VI she goes after her father(who died a long time ago).


Mina is a withdrawn and introverted maiden. She distrusts people, unsure of how to act around others without being suspicious of them.


  • Energy Arrow - Mina can shoot arrows fueled with ki energy.

Fighting StyleEdit

Mina is the first archer character to grace the character lineup. Players need to keep her enemies at bay with her various archery skills as she has little means of defending herself in close range combat.

Unlike other animal companions, Chample is used less for attacking purposes and mostly remains as a mascot character, participating in battle through background animations and noises. Several moves do include him though, like 'Good night Chample' in which Mina puts him to sleep, stopping his movement and sounds. Because he seldom helps Mina in her fights, he has been called "annoyingly cute" by critics.
