Sho is a new character introduced in Metal Slug Attack.
Sho is a young ninja training under Yoshino as her apprentice. He prefers to speak under his breath and is rather nervous of Yoshino because of her seriousness in training, fearing that if he disobeys, he will be heavily punished. He uses energy kamas in combat.
Sho specializes in air skills. and his specialty skill is "Air Rend", in which he readies one of the kamas like a rope and tosses it at the enemy. Should it impale a target, he will quickly dash to them and launch a flurry of blows with both of his kamas.
First appearing in "Growing Ninja", he is training with Yoshino when they arrive at a supernatural spot. He is uncomfortable with training there but still complies nonetheless, not wanting to anger Yoshino. Yoshino soon detects enemies coming and they narrowly dodge a meteorite. Schwarz Metzelei and a Flying Shelt appear; she has been tasked with disposing of the Ptolemaic Army as they have been a thorn on their side.
Yoshino tells Sho to defeat the enemy alone and seemingly abandons him, much to his fear. However, he manages to muster enough courage to use "Air Rend" against Schwarz and wounds her. Schwarz retreats with the Flying Shelt, prompting Yoshino to come out. Sho is delighted with his victory, but Yoshino slaps some sense back to him, as he is still training and not ready for more battles.
Sho continues to train with Yoshino, though he begins to wonder why they are training so much. Yoshino tells Sho about her past and how she originated in a ninja village and trained under the watchful eye of their elder. While fighting the Arabian Army, Sho learns why Yoshino is intent on training him feverishly and also learns a new technique, one which was passed down by the village elders to Yoshino herself.
