    • Jubei: Gemma! Burn in your golden HELL!
    • [ambushed by Tessai]
    • Jubei: No... I know the way now! So leave me alone, alright?
    • Tessai: Not quite the right direction. The way to Hell is...
    • [pins Jubei to a column]
    • Tessai: RIGHT HERE!
    • [punches him in the guts]
    • Jubei: Gemma, where are you hiding? When I die, I'll take you to Hell with me.
    • Lord Himuro Gemma: I won't let you die before I torture you enough to pay me back. To pay me back for my destroyed dream!
    • Jubei: Your dream? Of becoming the only true Shogun of the Dark? That's a laugh. If you became a Shogun, there'd be nothing but devils in this world. If you so want the company of devils... you'd better hurry back to hell, Gemma!
    • [cuts off Gemma's arm]
    • [tracking Jubei through a bamboo forest]
    • Utsutsu: You lured me in here because I am blind - is that your plan?
    • [chuckles]
    • Utsutsu: If you want to kill me, you mustn't make any sound at all.
    • Jubei: The only sound you'll hear... is the sound of your own voice, screaming.
    • Dakuan: They poisoned the wells, and killed the villagers, and then said it was an infectious disease. This was their method of keeping the curious away. They're planning something, something very extraordinary.
    • Jubei: I'm interested in finding out what it is they're planning.
    • Dakuan: That's admirable. But don't get yourself in too deep, or you'll surely wind up dead.
    • Jubei: Gemma! Did you miss the flames of hell? Is that why you came here?
    • Lord Himuro Gemma: So it's you, Jubei. I should've finished you off myself when I had the opportunity.
    • Jubei: I thought rats usually leave a sinking ship.
    • Lord Himuro Gemma: Heh! I suppose you want to avenge that ninja girl, Kagero. She's nothing compared to what I'm going to lose with this ship.
    • Jubei: Prepare to lose your life as well!
    • [awakens]
    • Jubei: Uh! Gemma...!
    • Jubei: Why not? We've helped each other out many times since we met yesterday. You're my comrade.
    • [Jubei gets up to leave. Kagero follows him]
    • Jubei: Stay here. The Mochizuki clan has already backed out of this. You mission here is completed.
    • Kagero: I'm not done yet. I still have a debt that I owe to you.
    • Jubei: You can pay it back later.
    • Jubei: Not if you're dead, ninja Jubei! I'll take care of this right now!
    • [takes off her clothes]
    • Jubei: What are you doing?
    • Kagero: The old man told me how to do it - counteract the poison. "Kill poison with poison", he said. He said, if you make love to me, you'll be free from poison. Mine will destroy it... so you must take me now.
    • [Jubei embraces Kagero, but leaves when he hears the Shogun of the Dark's ship nearby]
    • [winces and nurses his injured arm]
    • Kagero: What are you doing? You'll die unless you take me! Why not? Wait, Jubei!
    • [cries]
    • Kagero: I'm sorry.
    • Jubei: Forget about it. Haven't the retainers of the castle taken some action yet?
    • Kagero: They've had two hours.
    • Jubei: Hmm. I see.
    • Kagero: You knew it was a trap, and yet you still came to rescue me. Why did you do that? Why risk your life to save me?
    • Jubei: Because we're comrades.
    • Kagero: Comrades?
    • Dakuan: Well, this ninja girl is very useful. You see she has the technique of poisoning the man she sleeps with... In fact, the man you thought you killed, was poisoned by her. Anyone who makes love to her dies. So you see, she's perfect in this amoral world.
    • Jubei: Who was he, that devil back there? Never mind, I don't really want to meet him again.
    • Kagero: I'm grateful to you. I am Kagero of the Koga ninja team.
    • Jubei: My name's Jubei. Jubei Kibagami. Are you certain you're alright?
    • Kagero: I am not in danger anymore. Kakio is west of here. I must go now.
    • Hanza: Kagero! What are you doing here?
    • Kagero: Hanza, tell me why you have counted me out of this mission.
    • Hanza: Need I remind you, you have your own mission, don't you Kagero? Don't forget that poison tasting is a very important responsibility.
    • Kagero: While our lord is away, there is really no need for my expertise. Till he returns I belong with you... a member of your Koga ninja!
    • Hanza: But it is too dangerous!
    • Kagero: You might die on this mission. Do you expect me to just sit here and wait? Alone?
    • [cuts part of her hair and throws it before Hanza]
    • Koga Ninja: Kagero is beautiful, even more beautiful than before. That's why I pity her even more - it's her destiny. She must hate it.
    • Jubei: I'll kill you yet!
    • [reattaches his severed arm]
    • Lord Himuro Gemma: No one can kill me. This - you, of all men - should know by now.
    • [picks Jubei up]
    • Lord Himuro Gemma: I have become immortal as a true demon.
    • Jubei: Is that so?
    • [repeatedly headbutts Gemma]
    • Jubei: I swear if you... come back to life again, then I'll... kill you again, no matter how many times!
    • [screams and delivers a final blow]
    • Yurimaru: Benisato... you mean the man Jubei Kibagami is the remnant of the government spies?
    • Benisato: Possibly.
    • Yurimaru: Why didn't you kill him?
    • Benisato: Someone interfered.
    • Yurimaru: No excuses accepted.
    • [attempts to wrap a wire around her neck, but she catches it and it wraps around her arm]
    • Yurimaru: If he is a government spy, he'll show up soon enough. Be sure to kill him next time.
    • Benisato: I don't need your advice on that. If you don't mind, I'll tell Gemma in bed later on, Yurimaru. Do you mind?
    • [pulls the wire from Benisato's arm]
    • Yurimaru: Sleep well.
    • [last lines]
    • [after cutting part of Dakuan's robes and letting a gold ingot fall into the sea]
    • Jubei: That will be your payment, old man. Make sure I never see you again.
    • Dakuan: Aha - so, you beat me. I thought I would shut your mouth in Edo, but on second thought, you probably wouldn't live that long as you so love risking your life. Everything ends exactly as I have written it!
    • [laughs crazily as Jubei leaves]
    • Dakuan: To understand people's minds and control them is the secret of the ninja strategy. But only true sympathy can move the human heart. A pompous old ninja like me can't hope to do it.
    • Dakuan: We're arriving. There's a weird bloody air hovering around here, as no hell lies beyond.
    • [Jubei and Kagero are hanging off a cliff by a thread]
    • Jubei: How long are you gonna stick with me?
    • Utsutsu: Your sight is a weakness!
    • Yurimaru: Isn't Tessai back yet, Zakuro?
    • Zakuro: Benisato went to look for him. We're alone. Completely alone, Yurimaru. I've fallen madly in love with you. Oh, you know that, don't you?
    • [Zakuro leans in to kiss but Yurimaru rejects her]
    • Yurimaru: I don't need your love. You don't interest me even in the slightest. Now go and stand watch.
    • Zakuro: So, what I've heard is true. Have many pleasant dreams in Gemma's arms. But Gemma makes love to both men and women. Oh, by the way, do you know he regularly has Benisato? Oh, so you didn't?
    • [laughs hysterically]
    • Zakuro: It looks as if Yurimaru carelessly stepped into my trap; an unfortunate accident, but his own fault. Now he's the Queen of the Devils!
    • Shogunate Envoy: Gemma, this gold will soon help us make our dream come true.
    • Lord Himuro Gemma: The Devils of Kimon will take the gold.
    • Shogunate Envoy: Damn you! Yaah!
    • [runs to Gemma with his sword, but Gemma puts him in a stranglehold]
    • Lord Himuro Gemma: I'll use the gold to organise the most powerful army of ninja ever, and we will rule the country with terror and power from the shadows. Anyone who disobeys me - Tokugawa, or Toyotomi, even the Shogun of the Dark - shall die.
    • [breaks the Envoy's neck]
    • Lord Himuro Gemma: That means the *real* Shogun of the Dark... is me!
    • [chuckles as he throws the body into the sea]
    • Lord Himuro Gemma: What dream?
    • Shogunate Envoy: Our great dream. We'll topple the Tokugawa government, and restore the reign of the house of Toyotomi. You wouldn't understand how we ex-Toyotomi retainers have suffered. This time, the Tokugawa will suffer those agonies. With the gold we intend to buy the most advanced weapons from Spain and use them against him. That is the true dream of all who work for the Shogun of the Dark.
    • Lord Himuro Gemma: Nonsense.
    • Shogunate Envoy: Wha... what did you say?
    • Lord Himuro Gemma: I said it's nonsense.
    • Shogunate Envoy: Watch your tongue! You're a mere ninja!
    • Lord Himuro Gemma: My dream is different. The gold won't go to the Shogun of the Dark.
    • Shogunate Envoy: What?
    • [after killing Utsutso Mujuro, angry at Kagero for interfering]
    • Jubei: Haven't you had enough yet? What are you thinking?
    • Kagero: Why have you become so desperate to die?
    • Jubei: It's not me who's so desperate to throw my life away to return a favour! You're acting as if your life is worthless or something! Because of your body? Is it true then, that you kill whichever man sleeps with you - by poisoning him?
    • [beat]
    • Kagero: You'll know if you sleep with me.
    • [Jubei embraces Kagero, but she backs away]
    • Kagero: No, you fool! Poison is seeped into every part of my being. It's become so strong that even the touch of my lips can kill you instantly. No one can ever touch me. If you dare to, you're dead.
    • Jubei: Is your heart filled with poison as well?
    • [gasps]
    • Kagero: How dare you!
    • Jubei: I hate those who think so little of their own worth.
    • Kagero: What do you know of it? You will never know.
    • [first lines]
    • Bandit Boss: Thanks to your interference, Jubei, we lost 300 pieces of gold! I can't go back empty-handed!
    • Jubei: Well, perhaps you won't have to go back completely empty-handed...
    • [shows the bandit the rice ball he's eating]
    • Jubei: Bite?
    • [after Jubei defeats a trio of bandits]
    • Bandit Boss: Then, it's true! They hired you for only 20 pieces of gold, Jubei?
    • Jubei: Yeah.
    • Bandit Boss: But the sword we stole was a precious treasure given by the Shogun! And they're paying you only 20 pieces of gold for getting it back for them?
    • [laughs]
    • Bandit Boss: You fool!
    • Jubei: They're a poor, small clan. You can't swindle 300 pieces of gold for a sword. You're asking too much - you're the fool!
    • Bandit Boss: Shut up! Damn you!
    • [finishes his rice ball, notices the weather]
    • Jubei: Looks like a storm is brewing here. I better get movin'!
    • [after getting beaten by Tessai]
    • Jubei: It hurts... that makes us even, doesn't it? Let's just call it quits!
    • Tessai: Not until you have paid your debt.
    • Jubei: That's not very smart... first of all, don't you think that if we keep this up, it's almost certain one of us is gonna die?
    • Tessai: One of us? Yes.
    • [drags his sword to himself using a string]
    • Jubei: There's no reason we should kill each other...
    • [flings the sword to himself and catches it]
    • Jubei: That's the only sensible answer! Isn't it?
    • Tessai: Well, answer THIS!
    • [throws his sword at Jubei]
    • [Tessai is molesting Kagero]
    • Jubei: Ahem.
    • Tessai: Hey, piss off. I'm busy.
    • [Jubei doesn't respond]
    • Tessai: Can't you hear me? Beat it!
    • [Jubei walks over to them]
    • Jubei: Do me a favor - y-y'see, I'm lost and I need to find the quickest way from here to Kakio? I'm really sorry to bother you, but the highway was closed...
    • [Tessai attacks him with his blades, but it only makes a cut in Jubei's sugegasa]
    • [ruefully]
    • Jubei: My best hat!
    • [Tessai chokes Kagero as she tries to resist his molestation]
    • Tessai: Shut up. And perhaps I'll let you live just a little bit longer. Don't let it cross your mind that I wouldn't mind raping a dead girl.
    • [she stops resisting; gets a concealed knife ready]
    • Tessai: Better...
    • [Kagero tries to stab Tessai with a hidden knife, but it breaks against his stone body]
    • Tessai: Nice try. I'll get rid of this pesky insect, and then I'll kill you!
    • [turns his attentions to Jubei]
    • Tessai: What now? You regret not running away?
    • [chuckles]
    • Jubei: No. As a matter of fact, I've been thinking about... your body. It seems to me that... your body can't be as hard as rock all over, now, can it?
    • [throws a knife into Tessai's eye; he and Kagero escape]
    • [to himself, after defeating Mushizo]
    • Jubei: Reincarnation? He meant Gemma... Himuro Gemma has come back to life? That's absurd!
    • [Jubei runs to a mortally wounded Kagero]
    • Jubei: No... it's not over yet!
    • [They kiss. Kagero takes off her headband and gives it to Jubei]
    • Kagero: Oh, Jubei... I'm so glad I met you and I'm, I'm happy... I...
    • [dies]
    • Jubei: Don't die! Kagero!
    • [weakly]
    • Kagero: Jubei...
    • Jubei: I told you to stay there!
    • Kagero: I owed you a favour... remember, Jubei?
    • [gasps]
    • [tearfully]
    • Kagero: It was the first time... anyone ever treated me as a woman, and not, not as a ninja warrior who was completely expendable. I knew I would become more attracted to you if we stayed together, but I needed that from you - please forgive me, I'm sorry. You were the only person who didn't care about my poisoned soul! Whether for an antidote, or just from compassion. I wish we could have made love just, just once!
    • [cries as Jubei embraces her tightly]
    • Kagero: I was not honest, I was weak. I... needed... you!
    • Yurimaru: Do you feel the agony, Jubei?
    • Benisato: What's your destination, stranger?
    • Jubei: Weave your spells on someone else!
    • [Benisato sheds her skin and escapes]
    • Jubei: No place in particular. Just moving.
    • Benisato: I'm looking for someone... and you look exactly like him. So I...
    • [gets his sword ready]
    • Jubei: All strangers look alike. I'm a vagabond named Jubei Kibagami.
    • [the snake tattoos on Benisato's body come to life. She traps Jubei into a trance]
    • Benisato: It was exactly your face. Tessai copied your visage in his palm... his death is your fault!
    • [Dakuan throws a ninja star into Jubei's arm, breaking him out of the trance]
    • Benisato: Die!
    • [She sets her snakes on Jubei, who cuts them up. He grabs her and holds his sword against her throat]
    • [stabs Dakuan with what he thinks is a poisoned ninja star]
    • Jubei: Now you need the antidote as well, old man.
    • Dakuan: Oh, boy. You're such a fool. That isn't the same dart that stabbed you. I threw that hellish thing away!
    • [screams as Jubei throws him into the springs]
    • Jubei: Demon!
    • Dakuan: Jubei Kibagami, you have lost this time. Well, live and learn. My name is Dakuan. Let's be friends!
    • Chamberlain: You, ninja girl! You've done well.
    • Chamberlain: You idiots! Sakaki Hyobu died two days ago!
    • [laughs as he morphs into Gemma]
    • Lord Himuro Gemma: I killed him myself.
    • [screams]
    • Jubei: GEMMA!
    • Kagero: You must hurry, or they'll get away! Are there any other members?
    • Chamberlain: Don't be worried, we've already surrounded this area.
    • Kagero: Then please, you must go quickly!
    • [They are surrounded by Yumimaru and other ninjas. Kagero prepares to defend the Chamberlain, but he suddenly stabs her from beh]
    • Kagero: Jubei!
    • [watching from a rooftop]
    • Jubei: Kagero!
    • [Dakuan holds him back]
    • Dakuan: No, stop! Don't do it, it's a trap!
    • [Jubei is covered in snakes set by Benisato]
    • Kagero: Get rid of them!
    • [Benisato makes the snakes leave, freeing Jubei]
    • Kagero: And now it is your turn to answer this. What are you doing in this village? Well, speak!
    • [screams as she is electrocuted by Yumimaru]
    • Benisato: Answer my question. Are there more than just you and the travelling monk?
    • Jubei: Of course. There's a whole army - even if you sent one of these snakes for each one, you wouldn't have enough. You'll see.
    • Benisato: Hmph - what lies!
    • Jubei: Okay - I'll tell you the truth! Well, there's... the monk and myself, and one other. She's right behind you!
    • [Kagero grabs Benisato from behind and puts her sword to her throat]
    • Kagero: Get rid of the snakes. Get rid of them all!
    • [a snake emerges from Benisato's vagina and bites Kagero's leg, who winces]
    • Benisato: Her sting is most deadly!
    • [trying to locate Dakuan]
    • Shijima: Interesting - he vanished. A strange technique.
    • [reveals to have disguised himself as a tree branch]
    • Dakuan: Yours is interesting as well, my friend.
    • Jubei: Get rid of the wasps! Do you hear me?
    • Mushizo: I'm afraid you must defeat me first.
    • [laughs]
    • Mushizo: Do you think I escaped into this water mill?
    • Jubei: No, I don't. But I have many questions to ask of you, demon... but I will ask only one. Is Himuro Gemma still alive?
    • Mushizo: Why ask?
    • Jubei: Because I sent Gemma to Hell once already!
    • Mushizo: Oh, is that so? Then I must be careful - unlike Gemma, I don't have the ability to reincarnate myself.
    • Jubei: Reincarnation?
    • [after Jubei cuts off part of his back]
    • Mushizo: So, you have harmed the wasps' home!
    • [Kagero has poised her sword at Dakuan's back]
    • Dakuan: What are you planning to do?
    • Kagero: The man you hired will die of poison soon unless you give him an antidote. You must tell me how to save him.
    • Dakuan: Why ninja girl, you amaze me. Do you mean to tell me that... you're in love with him?
    • Kagero: Old fool, he saved my life and I'm simply... returning the favour!
    • [chuckles]
    • Dakuan: I don't think so. Imagine a ninja woman who believes she's falling in love...
    • [Kagero stabs through his hat]
    • Dakuan: If you kill me, then he will die as well.
    • Kagero: Hmm. Yes that's true, but your mission won't be accomplished either.
    • Kagero: Tell me - why did you join him, Jubei?
    • Jubei: I can't sell your debt, okay?
    • Kagero: Look, I told you, I don't take orders from you! And I'm ready to die at any given moment.
    • Jubei: You don't have to convince me you're tough.
    • Kagero: No?
    • Jubei: Oh, damn it! It's this hot and damp air. I wish a storm would come so a shower would cool your head.
    • [walks away and vomits blood]
    • Kagero: You're in no position to worry about me.
    • Jubei: He hired me. For a hundred pieces of gold.
    • Kagero: Will you do anything for money? A ninja for hire?
    • Jubei: That's right. But it seems that he's beaten me this time.
    • [shows her the wound on his arm]
    • Jubei: You see, he trapped me. Looks like I'm gonna die of this poison in about half a day.
    • [gasps]
    • Jubei: He also promised me an antidote besides the gold pieces. That's why I work for him. I can't back out now. You better go away while I divert their attention.
    • Kagero: I couldn't do that. I would end up owing you another debt.
    • [speaking via electrical wire]
    • Lord Himuro Gemma: Yumimaru, report.
    • Yurimaru: Lord Gemma, all three have been killed.
    • Lord Himuro Gemma: Incompetent. All three are still alive!
    • Yurimaru: I will kill them myself.
    • Lord Himuro Gemma: You will stay where you are. Lure them there, then kill them. Understand?
    • Yurimaru: Yes.
    • [wire disconnects]
    • [chuckles as he feels his neck wound]
    • Lord Himuro Gemma: I never expected to see you again. Not this soon... JUBEI!
