BUSHIDO likes to practice his martial arts skills outdoors in freezing temperatures to heighten his sense of awareness and dscipline. He is known for being cool and calculating in the heat of battle, just like his blood brother BANZAI. After studying the techniques of such notable ninjas as STORM SHADOW and SNAKE-EYES, he trained himself in, of all places, Iceland. He has great respect for tradition and for family pride, which is why he wears an ancient Samurai helmet as did his warrior father.
