  • Saizo: I am Saizo the Fifth, servant to the Hoshidan royal family.
  • Kotaro: Saizo...that name sounds familiar. I believe I've murdered others of your pitiful lineage.
  • Saizo: You—! How dare you! My father was an honorable man.
  • Kotaro: Honorable? Maybe. Weak? Definitely. That balding old fool had the audacity to lecture me! So naturally...I put an end to his life.
  • Saizo: I knew you were the one responsible for his death. Coward!
  • Kotaro: Bwahaha! Isn't this a stroke of luck? To fell both father and son with the same blade... How poetic!

  • Kotaro: Ha! If you're anything like your father, you won't land a single blow!

(If Saizo gets the kill)

Revelations Chapter 13 Edit

Vs. Ryoma Edit

  • Saizo: Lord Ryoma...
  • Ryoma: You would point your blade at me, Saizo? Have you truly joined Avatar and betrayed your liege?
  • Saizo: No. My loyalty lies with you and you alone. However I feel that you are blinded to the real enemy among us... I do not think I am betraying you now. My actions will show you...
  • Ryoma: Hmph... So even you have had your heart swayed by Avatar.
  • Saizo: That may be the case. In time, yours will, too. I must get past you though. The fate of this town requires it. Please, find it your heart to forgive me for what I must do...

Vs. KazeEdit

  • Saizo: Kaze... I never thought I'd live to see my own brother betray us. As your twin, and a proud ninja serving the great kingdom of Hoshido... I want you to know that I am truly ashamed of you and your actions.
  • Kaze: Saizo, we have been close since the moment we were born. I never wished to disappoint you, but I stand by my decision. Say what you will---I have no regrets. I proudly side with Avatar.
