Kennyo appears during Magoichi's story mode in Samurai Warriors. He is a reserved yet pacifistic individual who leads the remainder of the Ikko sect to oppose Nobunaga. However, his determination wavers when he sees some of his defenses faltering. In order to prevent more casualties, he decides to surrender to Nobunaga. Due to a previous and bloody experience with the Demon King, Magoichi will try to prevent this. In both story paths, Kennyo will swear loyalty to Nobunaga as a condition of surrender. His army also appears in Mitsuhides 2nd stage in Samurai Warriors & the army is led by Shoukei. Though he personally doesn't appear, the Honganji forces appear once more at Osaka Bay in Samurai Warriors 2.
Role in Super Smash Sisters
Kennyo is an NPC in Super Smash Sisters. Instead of a spear moveset like in Samurai Warriors, he will use a monk staff that can use magic (both elemental and dark). The monk staff is incapable of using Gharnef's Imhullu attack.
