* In ''New Tale of Zatoichi'', Ichi decides to settle down and marry his mentor's sister Yayoi. She accepts, but requests that Ichi give up his violent lifestyle and leave the Yakuza. Ichi agrees, but then Yasuhiko--the [[AvengingTheVillain brother of a Yakuza that Ichi killed]] in a previous film--turns up and challenges him to a fight. Refusing to break his promise to Yayoi, Ichi lays down his sword, and both he and Yayoi beg Yasuhiko to show mercy. The gangster proposes that they settle things with a dice roll: if it's evens, he'll spare Ichi, but if it's odds, he'll hack his arm off at the shoulder. Ichi accepts, but rolls odds. However, Yasuhiko has been so moved by [[ThePowerOfLove Yayoi and Ichi's love]], that he flips the die to evens and spares Ichi's life. A touching, unexpected moment of humanity from a hardened Yakuza.
