Karate Ken is a playable multiplayer character who appears in Serious Sam: The Second Encounter and the Serious Sam Fusion version of Serious Sam 3: BFE.


Karate Ken is a Zorg Commander with white muscles and orange skin. Why he's fighting against Mental instead of working for him is unknown.

Based on his name, he appears to be a fan of martial arts. However, he cannot do any in-game (unless the melee kills in Serious Sam 3 count).

Despite not being a playable character in Serious Sam 3: BFE without file editing, he is available in the Serious Sam Fusion version.

Behind the scenes[]

A model for Karate Ken using the Serious Sam HD Zorg Commander model can be found in the Serious Sam 3: BFE game files. This suggests that Karate Ken was supposed to be a playable character at one point, but was removed from the final game for unknown reasons. With some file editing, he is fully playable.
