The Swordsman is a fictional character featured in The Return of Junkenstein.

He is one of the playable characters in the seasonal brawl Junkenstein's Revenge introduced during Halloween Terror 2017.

Story[edit | edit source]

The Swordsman traveled together with The Monk. It is said they answered to a foreboding presence beyond mortal understanding.

After the first attack on Adlersbrunn ended in failure for the servants of the Witch of the Wilds, she later resurrected the fallen Junkenstein and recreated her army to launch an endless night of terror on the castle. The Lord of Adlersbrunn summoned four new heroes to fight the new menace, including the Monk and his apprentice.[1]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Swordsman is visualized as Genji in traditional Japanese clothing and straw hat.
  • In an interaction with the Shieldmaiden (portrayed by Brigitte), he mentions his sword is named Ryū Ichimonji, which is also the name of Genji's sword.
