Samurai Shodown 4 - Cheesing Amakusa Shiro Tokisada

Move back slightly until the screen zooms out. Do a crouching kick by pressing down + D button. Amakusa will respond with a far heavy slash, crouching slash, or his projectile. Jump over Amakusa’s attacks with a jumping deep heavy slash by pressing up-right + C button. Repeat until Amakusa starts teleporting around, then just evade him and his attacks until time runs out.

Samurai Shodown 4 - Cheesing Minazuki Zankuro

Just press forward + AB buttons simultaneously to walk forward and then circle step when Zankuro gets close and is about to attack you, then do a standing heavy slash. Ideally do it while Zankuro is jumping too since he throws out empty jumps a lot if you aren’t attacking. Repeat until you win.

Also, when you run / dash towards any of the CPU characters, CPU Zankuro included, they will always try to slash you. While you are running / dashing, you can react to this slash by deflecting it (216D or 2146D motion) or by using Jubei’s catch counter.
