Marked since 2011-06-27 because: Sunshine's appearances in each mission should be listed in the biography section and the specific mission/cutscene names used as references. The events from Burning Down the House, Bad Trip, Bonding Experience are missing
Mr. Sunshine was The General's right hand man and the Sons of Samedi's second in command. He was incredibly devoted to The General, but seemingly disliked Veteran Child. He was a violent man when prompted, once slashing an innocent bystander in a music store to clear the place out and shooting an addict who wanted to buy the drugs from the 3rd Street Saints, sparing Veteran Child's life only on The General's order. He possessed some kind of Voodoo Power while holding a Voodoo Doll, as he was able to become immortal and send The Protagonist flying without even touching him while manipulating the doll. He often carried a machete as his weapon of choice and a sceptre made from a wooden shaft topped with a skull on top and ending in a spike. He has a hideout at a meat packing plant in The Mills, located in the Factories District. He tried to protect the Samedi's business from the Saints, but failed continuously to thwart them. As punishment, The General cuts his left ear off. He later enlisted multiple addicts to attack the Saints' warehouse, swearing he would let them keep all the drugs for themselves. The Protagonist later fought him in the meat packing plant, and was annoyed when he continued to fight even after being shot multiple times in the chest, so he fired an entire magazine into him and beheaded him with his own machete, before chucking his decapitated head onto a conveyor belt.
His favorite song was rumoured to be Karma Chameleon by the Culture Club, according to the DJ of The Mix, who tells listeners to draw their own conclusions.
Mr. Sunshine seems to have high pain tolerance, as he willingly lets his ear be cut off and does not make any noise indicating pain, although he clenches his fist, showing he does feel it and that he bleeds.
A female Samedi is heard mentioning "I can't believe Mr. Sunshine needs all those bodies". A male Samedi can be heared saying "You didn't kill Sunshine, you just made him stronger." Female goth Civilians can be heard saying: "You know the only reason you were able to kill Sunshine is that his 24 years were up, right?" . At one point Shaundi says "So Boss, are you sure Sunshine is dead?" Some male civilians suggest "You really sould think about burying Sunshine in about 6 feet of concrete, you know just in case."
Mr Sunshine seems to act a lot like the fictional drug lord King Willie from the movie, "Predator 2" and even Sunshine's death bares a resemblence.
He may also be a reference to Baron Samedi, the James Bond villain, who also had occult abilities and seemed immortal.
After you kill Mr. Sunshine if you walk into a female asian saint, she might say "I haven't had a nightmare about Mr. Sunshine in months."
Mr. Sunshine shares similarities with Jyunichi. Both are young men who are second-in-command and chief enforcers of their gangs and specialize in bladed weapons. Both also are very close to their leaders (the General and Kazuo Akuji, respectively) and meet their ends by blades as well as someone snitching on them.
Mr. Sunshine is one of the few known users of voodoo in the Saints Row series the other is Eye for an Eye.
Mr. Sunshine is the only Saints Row character to use magic on-screen.
Although he does not physically appear in the game, Mr. Sunshine's full model is present in the game files for Saints Row IV.
