Jubei is a one-eyed
samurai of the Yagyu clan. He was born as the son of a poor samurai. But
because his skills in sword fighting was great, he was adopted by Yagyu Munenori. His skills in sword fighting eventually earned him the position
of the leader of the Secret clan of Yagyu, the Iga
ninjas. One day, his
family suddenly disappeared without a trace. Since then, Jubei travels
throughout Japan to find his lost family. During his travels, he was challenged
by a young warrior named Haohmaru.
Although he easily defeated him, he decided to find other strong warriors
to show the power of Yagyu Shinkageryuu. Later, the Bakufu government ordered
him to rid of the evil when Amakusa appeared and later
off of a character of the same name from the movie Makai Tensei.
He is also based on the historical figure of the same name.

As the original
"elder samurai" of Samurai Shodown, Jubei is a no-nonsense, badass & traditional samurai design. He's straight and to the point, and he doesn't need much else. Along with other characters from
the original roster of Samurai Shodown, Jubei helped define the image of the series in its early years - adding authenticity and legitimacy to the iconic weapon-based fighting game.
the unique double katana style, which was very unique in the fighting
universe at the time of
his debut... and, not to mention, very "Musashi-like," - which is an awesome for those in the know, naturally. ;) As a fighting game character, Jubei's subtle cockiness and cool fighting style
makes him stand out. His outfit is somewhat basic, but for any true samurai
game, a traditional design like this is important. Samurai Shodown has its fair share of colorful "fantasy" characters (and they're cool too), but nothing is cool like a traditional samurai who won't hesitate to slice your ego in half.
