* CompleteMonster: Yoshida is a {{Yakuza}} boss who is asserting his undisputed rule over the drug trade in Los Angeles by [[RuthlessForeignGangsters terrifying all criminal opposition with casual dismemberment]] and over the Little Tokyo district by threatening the local business owners to accept his "protection". When he was still a lowly assassin in Japan two decades ago, he [[YouKilledMyFather hacked up the young hero's parents]] in front of the boy and tried to kill him next before the kid stopped him with his own katana. In the present, he crushes a man inside his car to take over his business and decapitates a girl named Angel in mid-coitus for trying to warn the victim. The coroner later points out that the girl was actually already fed so much drugs by Yoshida that she'd be dead in minutes anyway, cutting off her head as well served no purpose beyond cruelty. He [[IHaveYouNowMyPretty kidnaps and rapes Minako]], a singer who works for him, after forcing her to watch the tape he shot of himself beheading her friend Angel. He [[YouHaveFailedMe murders one of his own men for failing to stop the heroes from rescuing her]] because he found the [[{{Yubitsume}} traditional offer of a finger]] to be lacking. After he captures the two heroes he first tries to torture them to death by electrocution while forcing the singer to watch, and when that fails mash them to bits in a car grinder. When they come back to finish him off after faking their deaths he tries to burn Minako alive out of spite.

'''Kenner:''' [nods] Thanks, I don't know what to say.
* SpiritualLicensee: ''Showdown in Little Tokyo'' is as close one can get to a movie version of {{SNK}}'s Burning Fight. What with fighting a Yakuza gang, but taking place in [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Little Tokyo]], instead of Osaka, Japan in the arcade game.
