Memory Beta, the wiki for licensed Star Trek content.

Samurai were a warrior class that existed in ancient and feudal Japan.

One such knight of this warrior class ambushed Hikaru Sulu. While on the Amusement Park planet, Sulu's sub-conscious mind summoned one. Forced to flee, as his phaser was inoperable, Sulu escaped from the katana blade the samurai wielded. (TOS episode: "Shore Leave")

They were also the name of the group of warriors in the Mirror Universe that served under Emperor James T. Kirk. They were completely loyal to their leader and would obey orders-even if it meant their death. They wore black versions of Cardassian battle armour with red sashes that signified the blood they had sworn to their leader.

It is not known if this class of warriors existed solely under Kirk or if they were already present within the Terran Empire, considering its altered militaristic nature.

(TOS novel: Dark Victory)

Toshiro Kago is a Japanese Samurai who is found by the Lone Wanderer on Mothership Zeta in the year 2277.

Contents

Background

He is a Japanese Samurai abducted from earth's past. Toshiro cannot speak English. Unlike the Chinese Remnant or General Jingwei, the Lone Wanderer can't understand him and the subtitles don't translate what he says.

Interactions with the player character

Toshiro, when first met, will say something in Japanese that can be translated as "What/who are you? Where is this place?" then will say something about his sword and how he can't find it. If you find his sword and give it to him he will thank you. After that, he will disappear. Later, he can be found in the east wing of the Living Quarters, where he took revenge of the aliens, killing several of them.

Inventory

Apparel Weapon Other item On death
Samurai Armor
Samurai Helmet
Samurai's Sword* - -

*Toshiro will use the sword if you either recover it from the Waste Disposal area and give it to him, or if you never enter the Disposal area. Should you decide to keep the sword, he will be unarmed.

Notes

  • He is originally called "Chinaman" by Paulson, but after Sally tells him that Kago is from Japan, Paulson then calls him "Oriental".
  • You can obtain his Samurai Armor and Samurai Helmet by reverse-pickpocketing him, or you can attack him at any time in the game and kill him and none of the other NPCs will turn hostile (Elliot may actually aid you in killing him). This makes it easy to get his armor (he doesn't have his sword before you've returned it to him).
  • After the questline of Mothership Zeta he stays aboard the ship and cannot be interacted with. After a while he will disappear from the ship.
  • If you have obtained the Samurai's Sword and had not given it to Toshiro, he may spawn with another copy of the weapon when encountered in the Living Quarters.

Appearances

Toshiro Kago appears only in the Fallout 3 add-on Mothership Zeta.

Behind the scenes

A rough translation of some of Toshiro's dialogue is as follows:

  • "Onushi wa nanimono? Koko wa dokoda?"
    • "What/who are you? Where is this place?"
  • "Sessha no ken! Sessha no ken wa dokoda?"
    • "My sword! Where is my sword?"
  • "Sappari wakaranai. Koko ga doko nanoka mouse. Sessha no ken wa doushita?"
    • "I don't understand [you] at all. Tell me where this place is! What has become of my sword?"
  • "Sessha no ken wa dokoda? Ima sugu kaesanu ka?"
    • "Where is my sword? Return it now!"
  • "Nani wo itteorunoda. Sappari wakaran. Nantoka shitekure!"
    • "What are you saying? I can't understand. Please do something!"
  • "Nantoka senuka! Sessha no ken wa ittai doko ni aru no ka?"
    • "Won't you do something?! Where the hell is my sword?"
  • "Nani wo itte orunoda. Kono chi ni mioboe no nai. Ittai sessha ni nani wo shita?"
    • "What are you saying? I have no memory of this world. What in hell has been done to me?"
  • "Sessha no ken wo imasugu kaesunoda. Hayaku kaesanu ka."
    • "Return my sword immediately. Hurry and return it!"
  • "Onushi wa ittai nani mono? Sessha wa naze koko ni iru?"
    • "What on earth are you? Why am I here?"
  • "Sessha no ken wa do natta. Eei, hayaku kaesanu ka!"
    • "What happened to my sword? Argh, return it at once!"
  • "Youkai kara mi wo mamoru niwa, ken ga iru!"
    • "I need my sword to defend against [these] demons!"
  • "Nani ga okotta no ka, kento tsukanu."
    • "What has happened? I do not have my sword!"
  • "Youjutsu de sessha wo toraete youkai me. Kono mama de wa okanu zo!"
    • "These wretched demons have taken me captive with their sorcery. I cannot be left like this!"
  • "Ken wo ubawarete shimatta, taegataki kutsujoku!"
    • "I have been robbed of my sword - this is an unbearable disgrace!"
  • "Ken wo sugu torimodo saneba naranu!"
    • "I must take back my sword immediately!"
  • "Hito wo azukeru na. Onushi no monoii wa sappari wakaran."
    • "Do not insult me! I cannot understand a word you are saying."
  • "Sessha wo tasuke takuba, sessha no ken wo sagashi dase!"
    • "If you want to help me, go and search for my sword!"
  • "Nanto? Nani wo nozonde orunoda. Nani yue, onushi no iu koto ga wakaranu no da?"
    • "What? What do you want? How is it that I have no idea what you are saying?"
  • "Onushi, naniyue sonoyo ni hanasu? Nanika shomo no mono demo arunoka?"
    • "You, why are you talking like that? Is there something you want?"
  • "Oh, sessha no ken! Kaeshite moraerutowa, katajikenai."
    • "Oh, my sword! I am most grateful for its return!"
  • "Oh, korekoso sessha no ken. Katajike nai."
    • "Oh, this is my sword! My utmost thanks!"
  • "Sumanuga, sessha mizukara korekara okorukotoni sonaeneba naranu."
    • "I am sorry, but I must now prepare myself for what is to come."
  • "Jyama wo suru na." (after finding his Samurai's Sword)
    • "Don't get in my way."

Bugs

  • After completing the main quest of Mothership Zeta, with Toshiro still alive, it is possible to pickpocket him. In his inventory his Samurai Sword will appear but trying to steal it may result in the game crashing.
  • If you kill Toshiro once you thaw him out, scripted dialogue options about him with the other NPCs will remain.

Samurai are based off the samurai warriors of ancient Japan, who were not just great swordsmen, but they were also powerful horse archers, virtually undefeatable. If near death in battle they would commit a ritual suicide known as seppuku, slicing their stomachs open with a short wakizashi sword.

Secret Identity

Super Heroes often choose to have a secret identity (as do Super Villains who often adopt aliases) when becoming a hero to protect themselves, their friends, and their loved ones. The consequences of an enemy finding out their real-life identity can be dire, often leading to the destruction of the hero's alter ego and/or the villain using a hero's loved one as bait.

Sidekick

In Comic Books, the term sidekick most commonly refers to assistants of Superheroes, usually in a crimefighting capacity. The sidekick has the literary function of playing against the hero, often contrasting in skill, asking the questions the reader would ask, or performing functions not suited to the hero.

Superhero

A superhero is a character who is noted for feats of courage and nobility and who usually has a colorful name and costume which serve to conceal their true identity, and abilities beyond those of normal human beings. A female superhero is sometimes called a superheroine, although this term has fallen out of favor in the modern era.

The word superhero originated with Superman, who debuted in 1938, and the stories of superheroes - ranging from episodic adventures to decades-long sagas - have become an entire genre of fiction that has dominated American comic books and crossed over into several other media.

Super Soldier Serum

A formula capable of enhancing human beings into "super soldiers." The exact formula given to Steve Rogers is unknown; there have been many attempts to duplicate it.

The Super-Soldier Serum, also called the Super-Soldier Formula, is the name for a process to increase the physical attributes of its recipient to the peak of human potential as in almost superhuman. Peak Humans are superior to any Olympic level athletes who have ever competed. Top athletes normally have one or two aspects close to, or a bit under, peak level. While peak human enhancements have all their capabilities like mind, strength, speed, durability, healing, eye sight, immune system, aging etc.. at the maximum level of human potential. Dr. Reinstein established that this potential is the next step in human evolution for regular man(non-mutant), a man from the coming decades. Meaning one day humanity will reach this level on there own, in the far future.

"Serum" is somewhat of a misnomer, as the "serum" actually consists of various processes. Characters that are considered by a enhancement true "Peak-Potential" are noted to be Captain America, Isaiah Bradley, Josiah X, Protocide, Union Jack (different SSS variant), and Black Panther (Wakanda-herb). Variations of the serum have been developed over the years which induced greater-mutations then Peak human, one which even created the powerful Sentry.

But the more powerful variants come with strange side-effects to mental deficiencies.

Supersoldier

Supersoldier is a term often used to describe a soldier that operates beyond normal physical human limits. Supersoldiers are common in comic books.

Supersoldiers are usually heavily augmented, either through genetic engineering, cybernetic implants, drugs, brainwashing, an extreme training regimen (usually with high casualty rates, and starting from birth), or other scientific means or a combination of any of those. Occasionally, some instances also use paranormal methods, such as black magic. The creators of such programs are viewed often as mad scientists or stern military men, depending on the emphasis, as their programs will typically go past ethical boundaries in the pursuit of science or military might.

  • Captain America was to be the first of a line of super-soldiers, a plan that was ruined when the creator of the Super-Soldier serum was killed. Other characters in the Marvel Universe, such as Wolverine (Weapon X) and X-23 are continuations of those experiments.

[top] [Edit Supersoldier]

Superhuman

In Marvel Comics the term superhuman is part of a "power classification system" and applies to aptitude (usually physical) far beyond the range attainable by normal human beings. An athlete is a normal human in extraordinary physical condition, such as a weight lifter or boxer. Peak human is applied to physical abilities that are nearly, but not quite, beyond the limits of the best of humans. Enhanced human refers to superhuman abilities some distance beyond the limits of humans, such as being able to lift a small car but not a tank, and is a kind of term for "light" superhuman abilities. Then comes the term superhuman. Characters with a superhuman attribute are far beyond normal human abilities. There is also a range beyond superhuman and this is metahuman. As the enhanced human level is really just a term for a low superhuman ability, metahuman is a term for a high superhuman ability.

They often have colorful names and costumes and/or other eccentricities. Female supervillains are sometimes known as supervillainesses.

Supervillains are often used as foils to superheroes and other fictional heroes. Their extraordinary brainpower and/or superhuman abilities make them viable antagonists for the most gifted heroes.
