This is why his Superman monolouge is incorrect. He tells her that Clark Kent is a mask and that Superman is who he is, just as she really is a killer. Its actually the opposite Superman is his job, hes just as much Clark Kent of Smallville as he is Kal-el of Krypton if not more so. This mischaracterization of Superman was intentional to show that he really doesn't understand her at all.

[[WMG: Bill orchestrated most of O-ren's life as a brilliant power-play.]]
Bill was a higher-up in the organization of the Yakuza who ordered the deaths of O-ren's parents. He heard her "whim-per" in the room and stayed behind to collect her after setting the place ablaze, while the rest of the crew returned to the hangout. Children who witness their parent's deaths seem to grow up to be murderers in this universe (see Beatrix Kiddo's automatic assumption about what Nikita Green will do when she's older), so Bill decided to put this particular killer-to-be to work for him. He trained her to become an assassin, made sure she became one of the girls on the pedophile crimelord's list, and then smuggled her out, earning her loyalty. In the wake of his death, Bill seized control of the gang's resources and finances, then dissolved the group, leaving a huge power vacuum in the Japanese underworld and him with enough funding to start a lucrative assassination cartel: The Deadly Viper Assassination Squad.
By playing one gang off another and killing key power figures in each faction, Bill ensures that the Japanese underworld will remain locked in bloody conflict for the next decade. He expands the his borders of operations around the globe, working other projects and jobs, but makes sure to keep Japan destabilized. Ten years later, when all of the Yakuza factions are weak, desperate and divided due to years of strife, he uses his influence and wealth to back the bloody rise of O-ren Ishii to head of the Yakuza and begin restoring the organization to glory. In a few years, one of the most powerful crime syndicate's in the world and the entire country its based in answer to a woman who holds him in utmost respect.

** This is [[Foreshadowing foreshadowed]] by the earlier scene where they're playing Cops and Robbers and Beatrix pretends to die. It's just a game all over again.

* A first hind comes from Budd. Upon hearing about all this, he remarks that it is typical for the Japanese to never forget a grudge they bear against someone. Bill and Hanzo indeed seem to have had [[ItsPersonal a personal conflict]] back in the old days.

* Tarantino originally wanted Creator/ChiakiKuriyama (Gogo) and Kou Shibasaki (Yuki) as sisters (Chigusa and Mitsuko from Battle Royale respectively). Due to conflicting schedules, Kou Shibasaki was unavailable so Tarantino changed it to twins before scrapping thr idea altogether. (I would love to see Shibasaki in the sequel however)

* Alternate reality, nothin'. Bill is the original Kwai Chang Caine. What can I say, that many years can change a man...and God knows what horrors Pai Mei put him through before deeming him worthy of the secret to eternal life.

* Him being surpised at Pai Mei having taught her the 5 point palm exploding heart technique more or less reinforces how little he really knows her. If he did he shouldnt have been surprised.
