Blaster Master Wiki
BMZ2 Kenwood

Kenwood is the Support Droid for Kanna and their Metal Attacker Eir, debuting in Blaster Master Zero 2.


Unlike most Support Droids guiding Metal Attackers to mutant-ravaged worlds, Kenwood had zero luck reaching a sapient pilot for Eir on Planet Stranga. Due to the differing flow of space-time between dimensional sectors, he spent nearly 20 years on this nearly fruitless search, unable to leave the planet's atmosphere.[1] Pushed to the ends of his patience, he dug Kanna out of the ground, resolving to raise her into a suitable pilot and a "proper lady".

He at least got the first part down right, as her impulsive challenge of Jason and Gaia-SOPHIA led to an explosive battle between the two tanks, and Kanna herself developed an aptitude for chemistry and pharmacology, using her own head and the assistance of Yacopu as a proving ground for medicines and other concoctions. Continuing to serve the Eir team, Kenwood serves as its diplomatic arm in addition to his ongoing role as Kanna's caretaker.


  • Like Leibniz, Kenwood is one of few characters introduced in Blaster Master Zero 2 to not be a reference to a past Sunsoft game.
  • Kenwood's sheep motif is a reference to the similarity in Japanese between "butler" (shitsuji) and "sheep" (hitsuji).
  • Kenwood is named after Kenwood Corporation, a Japanese brand of consumer electronics for cars. The name was apparently chosen for no other reason other than it "sounds good".
