Using this BorgEdit
It is a good idea when using Samurai Shogun to stay back and keep using the Shogun Slash. Shogun Slash is Samurai Shogun's most powerful attack. It does about 250-300 damage on big opponents and hits for a total of 59 hits. It usually kills small opponents one hit if hit continously. Although, it is great against CPUs, you might find another player being able to dodge it easily. Samurai Shogun is not very good at close range. One should just jump and keep air dashing and firing the Shogun Slash while doing some Shinku Slashes when charging. Basically, you need to keep holding down the X button the whole time and releasing it when the time is right. Also, while battling borgs with shields, it is a good idea to try to get around it with the Shogun Slash like hitting from the side, top, bottom, or behind because the Shogun Slash in easily blocked. Two Samurai Shoguns (not simultaneously) can easily beat the Galactic Emperor in five minutes.
Fighting This BorgEdit
One should get in close to fight Samurai Shogun and keep watch when they are done charging, so you are ready to dogde the Shogun Slash if given a chance. Alternatively, you could longe range the Samurai Shogun, but need to continuously keep moving so you are not hit by the Shogun Slash. Fast Borgs and Wing Borgs, such as Acceleration Ninja or Anubis Wing, seem to dodge the Shogun Slash easily or take less damage from it because they don't get hit with the full attack. Wing Borgs seems to get knocked back and out of the way of it quickly and don't take the full force most of the time. You need to hit them at just the right angle to do a good amount of damage. Also, borgs with a shield might stand a chance because the Shogun Slash can be blocked. If you keep blocking it and maybe get it close you'll have a chance. A borg like Sapphire Knight might stand a good chance. Machine Borgs are decent against Samurai Shogun as well because they have high health and defense and are quick. Cyber Mars might stand a good chance against Samurai Shogun.
