Master Sazuke is quite possibly one of the oddest characters to ever come out of my head. He was actually the result of a collaboration between me and a musician friend of mine at the time. We were joking about what new characters I could create and he mentioned that I should make a ninja. My one stipulation was that it had to be a bird. So what better bird to make a ninja than an emu? My friend's online screen name was "Jungle Master Sazuke," which I shortened to "Master Sazuke" and thus a new character was born. Sazuke was created primarily as an adversary for Dippy and he definitely wasted no time in torturing the poor ducky.
