— Mr. Sunshine, in his first encounter with Playa.


Saints Row 2[]

Mr. Sunshine is The General's right-hand man and the Sons of Samedi's second in command. He is incredibly devoted to The General, who calls him "friend", but he and Veteran Child hate each other.[4] He is a violent man when prompted, hacking his machete into an innocent bystander's back inside Scratch That to clear the place out[5] and shooting an addict who wants to buy the drugs from the 3rd Street Saints. He finds the burning of Shivington "beautiful."[6] He often carries 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. College students fear him and believe he has other powers beyond his machete.[7]

He possesses some kind of Voodoo power while holding a voodoo doll, as is able to become immortal and send Playa flying without even touching them while manipulating the doll.[8]

He has a hideout at a meat packing plant in The Mills, located in the Factories District. He is killed there by Playa.[8]

Sunshine helps intimidate Veteran Child into admitting that he had given information to Shaundi.[9] After the loss of Shivington to the Saints, Mr. Sunshine takes a more direct role[6] and arranges for Playa to be abducted. Unfortunately for him, Playa escapes but not before, concussed and stoned, refusing to be intimidated by Sunshine.[10]

After further failures, The General cuts his left ear off as punishment. Mr. Sunshine accepts this and assures his boss that he"only need[s] one ear to hear the whispers of the Loa."[11] He enlists multiple addicts to attack the Drug Factory, swearing they can keep all the drugs for themselves.[12] Playa goes gunning for him in revenge, attacking him at his hideout in the meat packing plant. In a display of supernatural power, Sunshine survives and continues to fight after being shot multiple times in the chest. Annoyed, Playa empties an entire magazine into him and finally beheads him with his own machete, before chucking his decapitated head onto a conveyor belt.[8]

Afterwards, people around Stilwater (including Shaundi) wonder if he is really dead or might come back.

Saints Row IV[]

Mr. Sunshine is the DJ for 103.6 420 FM in Saints Row IV.[3]

Saints Row: Gat out of Hell[]

After completing City Takeover, the Shawarma storybook cutscene shows Mr. Sunshine pressed into Blackbeard's service alongside Kazuo and Jyunichi after being defeated.[imagerefs 1]


  • Darius Masters, the DJ of The Mix 107.77, claims that Mr. Sunshine's favourite song is "Karma Chameleon" by the Culture Club.[Reference needed]
  • Mr. Sunshine has a high pain tolerance, willingly allowing his ear to be cut off without making any noise indicating pain, although he clenches his fist, showing he does feel it and that he bleeds.
  • Mr. Sunshine acts a lot like the fictional drug lord King Willie from the movie Predator 2 and even Sunshine's death bears a resemblance.
  • He may also be a reference to Baron Samedi, the James Bond villain, who also has occult abilities and seems immortal.
  • 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 series 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.
  • In Saints Row IV Mr. Sunshine's voodoo doll is attached to a black painting with the Sons of Samedi logo on it in the White Crib.


So Boss, are you sure Sunshine is dead?
— Shaundi

You know that the only reason you were able to kill Sunshine is because his 24 years were up, right?
— Female goth[13]

I can't believe Mr. Sunshine needs all those bodies
— Female Sons of Samedi member

You didn't kill Sunshine, you just made him stronger.
— Male Sons of Samedi member

You really should think about burying Sunshine in about 6 feet of concrete, you know just in case.
— Male Civilian

I haven't had a nightmare about Mr. Sunshine in months.
— Asian Female Saint
