** It might double as GenreSavvy--a tattooed, attractive woman that Jubei's never met before, slipping into a hot spring with him and saying in an alluring voice that he reminds her of someone she's looking for? [[SarcasmMode She couldn't be up to ''anything'' suspicious.]]

''Ninja Scroll'' was inspired by Futaro Yamada's HistoricalFantasy novels and constitutes a large {{Homage}} to them, though, contrarily to popular belief, it is '''not''' an adaptation of none of his works (an actual adaptation of a Yamada novel can be found in the manga and anime ''Manga/{{Basilisk}}'').

''Ninja Scroll'' was inspired by Futaro Yamada's 1958 HistoricalFantasy novel ''The Kouga Ninja Scrolls'', though, contrarily to popular belief, it is '''not''' an adaptation of said work (an actual adaptation can be found in the manga and anime ''Manga/{{Basilisk}}''). The movie also takes abundant material from other novels by Yamada, so it arguably counts as a large {{Homage}} to the author's work in general.

** Well, sort of. Some of the film's character designers also worked on ''VideoGame/SamuraiShodown'' and its sequels, and several characters' designs are based on characters from ''Ninja Scroll'': Caffeine Nicotine (Dakuan); Tachibana Ukyo (Mujuro); Shiki (Benisato); Amakusa (Yurimaru); Basara (Shijima); Sieger (Genma).
** In a more direct fashion: Kibagami Jubei's name comes from Kibagami Genjuro and YagyuJubei.
** Mujuro is a blind swordsman in the vein of {{Zatoichi}}.

As the ninja squad makes their way towards Shimoda village, they're slaughtered by a giant of a man who can turn his skin into stone. The only survivor of the massacre is Kagero, the sole female ninja in the squad -- and she survives only because the stone man (Tessai) wants to rape her. The empty temple he takes her to isn't quite empty, however, as wandering {{ronin}} Jubei -- the film's protagonist -- has stopped there. Jubei manages to wound Tessai in a brief fight and helps Kagero escape, but the duo parts ways afterward.

Kagero returns to report the death of her squad and is promptly sent back to gather more information about the attackers. In the meantime, Jubei is attacked by Tessai and then by another strange member of the group of super ninja that Tessai is a part of: the Eight Devils of Kimon. Jubei is saved from one of these attacks by Dakuan, a crazy old man who works as a government agent tracking the Eight Devils. Dakuan asks Jubei to help him, but Jubei refuses until Dakuan traps him in a PoisonAndCureGambit before revealing a startling piece of information: the leader of the Eight Devils is Himuro Genma, a man Jubei has some history with -- and whom Jubei [[OffWithHisHead insists he killed]] years ago.

* JuggleFu: In Jubei's introduction ''and'' EstablishingCharacterMoment, he simply ''had'' to take care of three disgruntled assailants before he could finish eating his rice-ball. So, he tosses said rice-ball ''straight'' into the air as two of his would-be murderers leap into him, blocks the first with his ''sheathed sword'' and [[UseYourHead knocks him silly with a headbutt]], takes his spear and smashes the second incoming idiot unconscious with it, then cuts the pistol of the third in half ''and'' sheathes his sword in one fast motion so fast the ''audience'' couldn't see it, and '''then''' opens his hand and catches the rice ball, nonchalantly finishing his lunch afterwards. It's as {{Badass}} as it sounds.
