Even though Baiken is now available in Samurai Shodown as DLC, SNK continues to reveal additional details about her. For example, the latest involves a track used when playing in a match with her. It shared an isolated clip of the Samurai Shodown Baiken theme song, “Smoking Hot.”
Here’s the full sample of the Baiken Samurai Shodown theme song “Smoking Hot.” The introduction feels like it borrows some of its melody from her original theme song, “Momentary Life.”

The Baiken theme song in some older Guilty Gear games was “Momentary Life.” Later, for the Guilty Gear Xrd titles, “Rokumon” was used instead.
