Mamahaha (ママハハ) is Nakoruru's hawk companion introduced in Samurai Shodown who acts as an exclusive helper to Nakoruru's Shura/Slash form in Samurai Shodown III. Her name translates to "stepmother."


One of Nakoruru's first close animal companions, Mamahaha is always looking out for Nakoruru. It is Mamahaha who first tells Nakoruru of her father's disappearance. Throughout the series, she often found by Nakoruru's side.


A loyal and faithful companion to Nakoruru always trying to help her in whatever way possible to protect nature.


  • Charge - Mamahaha can perform charges against opponents.
  • Hurricane - Mamahaha can flap her wings very quickly and throw a mini hurricane against opponents.

Fighting Style

Mamahaha can be used by the player to attack opponents in a diagonal aerial attack. When used efectively, she acts as Nakoruru's projectile and anti-air defense. The player may also command Nakoruru to use her as a mount for a limited time. Whilst she is in the air, players can command the pair to hover higher, drop, or use Nakoruru to attack foes. She may do so normally from Mamahaha's height or players may choose to drop her in a swirl attacking motion or use a diagonal nosedive attack. This allows players to confuse opponents on the proper direction needed to block, leading the way for an open hit. She isn't seen on-screen in Sen but can fly in when Nakoruru needs her.
