Iroha is a character from the Samurai Shodown fighting game series. She is a crane who transforms herself into a Japanese maid. She serves her master and appears to think of him as the most important aspect of her life.
Iroha wears a representational version of a maid's outfit, with a short white open kimono top with a short tassel in the front. She also wears a bow-ribbon like attatchment that starts at her shoulders and ends on each side of her. She wears a black unitard underneath her kimono, and black cloth on her arms with white gloves and black thigh-high tights, with sandals and a small bandage on her left leg.
Iroha is an obedient and cheerful maiden. She deeply cares for her master, trying her hardest to stay in her human form whilst in front of him. She embodies the traits of an actual maid.
Iroha fights using two Butterfly Swords, and is quite fast. She is an adept melee fighter, and has brief control over fire. She can also turn into her original form, a crane, in her finishing attack.
- Being very popular in Japan, Iroha has had a game made for her specifically, called Maid By Iroha.
- Her master is unknown, (rumored to be Andrew as in the previous U.S.A. President Andrew Jackson back in the 19th century when America forcibly opened Japan to the world using "gunboat diplomacy") but is more likely to be the player him/herself as she often bows and speaks to the player before and after her fights.
- Her name is taken from the Heian poem of the same name.
