Shizumaru is a young boy who has no memory of his past, and the main protagonist of Samurai Shodown 3. He doesn't even remember his name, so he named himself after his sword. Because he was deemed a "demon's child" since childhood, he lives and survives alone. The only thing Shizumaru remembers is the vision of a demon and a red field of vision. In order to find out what happened, he travels around Japan searching for the demon. He eventually finds Zankuro and kills the demon. But after he slays Zankuro, he realizes the demon within himself. Soon after, he senses the spirit of Zankuro again in the Amakusa castle. To slay Zankuro for good, he heads for Amakusa castle.

During the events of Samurai Shodown V, he was taken in as a servant by a noble young couple. The husband leaves to fight in the war at Hinowa, leaving his wife, Hakana, under Shizumaru's protection. Pregnant, Hakana wants to return to her father (who Shizumaru doesn't know is Youkai Kusaregedo) for shelter. Shizumaru, assured she is safe, feels obligated to help in the war. When the battles are over, he is rewarded a hefty sum of gold for his efforts. He leaves for home but is stopped by a man who calls him Yaiba. Despite Shizumaru's denial, the man insists that he is Yaiba and that "his family" misses him. Shizumaru chooses to stay with his master and flees. Unfortunately, his master dies in the war and Hakana is eaten by her father. Due to the trauma he has suffered, he labels anything malicious, be it person or mannerisms, as a "demon".

He respects Haohmaru, who inspires him and teaches him the philosophy of the sword at an early age. Shizumaru seeks to defeat Zankuro and supposedly avenge his family's death. He and Haohmaru slay Zankuro. After the events of Samurai Shodown IV, he confuses the remaining blood lust within him as a "rampaging demon". However, he comes to accept his "demon" as a natural part of himself and makes peace with his past. Shizumaru was originally believed to be loosely based off of Himura Kenshin from the manga Rurouni Kenshin, but the creators stated that his visual model was Kurama from Yu Yu Hakusho.
