~ Segata Sanshiro

Segata Sanshiro is a character created by Sega. He starred in the forty-fourth episode of Death Battle, Chuck Norris VS Segata Sanshiro, where he went up against Western action star Chuck Norris.


Segata Sanshiro was the Japanese mascot for the Sega Saturn. He was best known for appearing in commercials where he tries to force people to play the Sega Saturn using various comedic methods. When the Saturn transitioned to the Dreamcast, a commercial was made showing the supposed death of Segata, where he saved Sega from a missile exploding in their headquarters, but he has shown up in other media ever since.
