Did his character actually gain anything meaningful from being Brazilian? What was even the point?
>Forced loss at the start of the game even though it's incredibly easy to parry his attacks for an eternity
>Talks about dumb shit the entire game
>When you finally get your rematch he turns out to be one of the easiest bosses in the game but the game tries to paint him as some ultimate warrior with muh 1000-folds-katana.
>Forced to use his gay sword at the end of the game even though you don't have his explosive sheath
He wasn't supposed to be Brazilian, but someone mentioned to Kojima that his sword had a striking hue to it, causing him to think of an insightful pun on his ancestry, so he paged Kamiya about it in the middle of the night, and Brazilian Sam was born
It's relevant to his personality, the way he talks and behaves. Is it meaningful? Now that's a curious thing to ask or demand of this videogame. He is brazilian because he's brazilian. It's not something that's making a statement of any kind and it's better for it. The series is full of characters from different nationalities and honestly I don't know why the fuck you'd ask this about Sam instead of say asking "is there a point to Raiden being Liberian or Miller being Japanese?"
It's pretty much one of the few ways a non-full blooded or immediately related Japanese person could possibly be intimately knowledgeable about Kenjutsu, without it reeking of weeaboism, because Brazil has over a million people of Japanese descent down there.
Alternately, because fuck you, that's why.
A Brazilian flavor of cockiness? And how is that "more bearable" than any other "flavor" of cockiness? I'm fucking lost here.
>his sword had a striking hue to it
You must think you're fucking clever, don't you?
>Did his character actually gain anything meaningful from being Brazilian? What was even the point?
I don't think so, no.
Should he have?
He's just Brazilian, that's it. Is that a problem somehow?
Did his character actually gain anything meaningful from being black? What was even the point?
Well there's no way anything below Monsoon's neck is organic, so even if so it wouldn't be far off
Man's like 90% magnetz
Don't you niggers keep saying how people should make characters that just happens to be X instead of making their entire character around that fact?
Sam is a great character with his own ideals and dreams that happens to be a HUE, he doesn't even talk about it unless you buy his DLC what's exactly wrong with that?
It gave him an air of cool and badass, especially when going into his backstory a little more.
He was fighting the fucking C-A-R-T-E-L-S and survived intact from it all, and every now and then he did it with a fucking sword.
Did his character actually gain anything meaningful from being American? What was even the point?
Well it makes his character more "realistic" in a sense and lets them do a whole play on how his winds of destruction codename is "minuano".
When the samurai class in Japan fell, a lot of them fled to Brazil and Argentina, same as a lot of nazi officers. That's how we ended up with Brazilian Jiu Jitsu as well, the gracies got taught judo by one of the japs and developed it in their own way.
Wolf states that Sam got the sword from his father and that the reason sam's hf blade is so powerful is because of the quality of the original sword. So basically Sam's grandfather was some high ranking jap officer in WW2 and took his 1 mirrion folded katana with him to Brazil.
