Kazuhiro Sakamoto is the father of Eddie and Ryoko Sakamoto, as well as the younger brother of Kenichi Sakamoto. When both Kazuhiro was young, he consummated with the wife of a rival Yakuza boss, who would give birth to his son and later his daughter. The outrage was enough to spark a war within the Yakuza community and forcing Kazuhiro to go into hiding, while Kenichi looked after the young Eddie and infant Ryoko.

Stage: Kabukicho After Dark (BGM: AREA AREA by OZROSAURUS)
(We open on an illustration of a young Kazuhiro and Kenichi Sakamoto in a Yakuza meeting.)
Narrator (v/o): Kazuhiro Sakamoto. Younger brother of Kenichi Sakamoto and father of Eddie and Ryoko Sakamoto. In his youth, he, along with Kenichi were in line to take over for their father’s place as the head boss in the Sakamoto Yakuza and to resolve several issues with other Yakuza families.
(We see an illustration of Kazuhiro and Kenichi arguing with each other.)
Narrator (v/o): Kenichi was chosen over Kazuhiro because of his calmer approach to handling Yakuza business over Kazuhiro, who had a more callous and remorseless approach. The two brothers argued over who should’ve been the Yakuza boss for their family. Needless to say, Kazuhiro was not pleased and acted defiantly because of this.
(We then see an illustration of Kenichi and several Yakuza underlings fighting a rival family.)
Narrator (v/o): When word broke out that Kazuhiro had an affair with the wife of a feared Yakuza boss, the Sakamoto family found themselves in the midst of a turf war throughout the Japanese underground. During this time, the woman that Kazuhiro consummated with had given birth to a young boy named Eiji, who would be later known as Eddie, and an infant girl named Ryoko.
(We see an illustration of Kazuhiro leaving the Sakamoto family, while Kenichi holds the hand of young Eddie and holding infant Ryoko.)
Narrator (v/o): When the rival yakuza boss came looking for Kazuhiro, Kenichi had told him that he was already gone. Infuriated, the rival yakuza boss challenged Kenichi to a deathmatch and vowed to kill his young niece and nephew. Kenihi managed to win the duel, while looking to restore honor back into the Sakamoto house and looking after Eddie and Ryoko.
(We see an illustration of Kazuhiro today, leading the Gurentai.)
Narrator (v/o): Years had passed since Kazuhiro’s departure from the Yakuza, but recently, a new and wild group known as the Gurentai, have been wreaking havoc and breaking away from the norm and the laws of the Yakuza. At the helm of their wild rebellion is none other than Kazuhiro himself.
Rival Match: Eddie Sakamoto
(Scene takes place in an underground club, complete with palm trees, a makeshift beach, several slot machines, a roulette table, flat screen TVs, a bar, and a DJ booth, with a large square platform in the middle. The DJ announces the fight.)
DJ: Alright, alright, everyone, we’re ready for the final round between head of the Gurentai, Kazuhiro Sakamoto, and Yakuza drag racer, Eddie Sakamoto.
Eddie: The hell? Another Sakamoto?
Kazuhiro: Surprised? I know it’s been a long time since I’ve seen you…son.
Eddie: What? That can’t be. Uncle Kenichi told me you died long time ago.
Kazuhiro: That was only to cover up my discrepancies from my youth.
Eddie: And now you’re back, as head of the Gurentai and wreaking havoc on the Yakuza?
Kazuhiro: Truth be told, yes, but it’s only to bring down those who wish to harm our family.
Eddie: You don’t belong in this family, and I’m going to prove that to you!
Final Boss: Osiris
(Kazuhiro wins the fight. A slender African American secretary approaches.)
Secretary: Mr. Sakamoto?
Secretary: Follow me.
(We then see entering a lavish mansion, with two ivory stairs with golden handlebars and a marble floor. Kazuhiro looks around until two large mahogany doors open.)
(We see Osiris standing on top of a balcony.)
Kazuhiro: Who are you?
Osiris: I’m Osiris, the underground boss of all bosses. Someone like you should know that. Who are you?
Kazuhiro: I’m Kazuhiro Sakamoto, leader of the Gurentai.
Osiris: Sakamoto, huh? Now, why does that last name sound familiar to me? Oh yes, you must be related to Eddie, Ryoko, plus heir uncle Kenichi.
Kazuhiro: That is right.
Osiris: Well, since you’re a Sakamoto like them, I should make you aware of some things.
Kazuhiro: Like what?
Osiris: Like how I can run roughshod on the Yakuza.
(Osiris walks down the steps.)
Osiris: You see, the Yakuza may be feared, but I’m the one that they, and every other gang organization in the underground should fear.
Kazuhiro: But I do not fear you.
Osiris: Is that right?
Osiris: Then allow me to change all that for you.
(Osiris reaches the floor and confronts Kazuhiro.)
Osiris: You may or may not be a part of the Yakuza, but once you cross the boss of bosses, you find yourself standing on death’s door.
Kazuhiro: Death is nothing to me.
Osiris: You’re a bold motherfucker, and I like that about you. Too bad that I’ll have to kill you because of not only you family name, but for not recognizing a real boss when you see one. Business time starts now.
(We see Kazuhiro standing over a defeated Osiris.)
Kazuhiro: You call yourself the bosses of all bosses, yet you lay defeated at the feet of someone who fucked a rival yakuza boss’s wife, who gave him two children to take over the Yakuza for themselves. Now you tell me who really is the boss of bosses?
(Kazuhiro scoffs, followed by stomping on Osiris’s face, which cuts the screen to black. We then see Kazuhiro entering an abandoned warehouse, where several Gurentai gang members, including Shin Nozawa, are waiting for him.)
Shin: Boss, we were wondering where you went off to.
Kazuhiro: Winning an underground tournament that I had sent you to win for us.
Gurentai member #1: Boss, which part of Tokyo should we hit up next? I hear the Takao family are looking to take the Ueno district for themselves.
Kazuhiro: Let us not worry about them for a bit. We have other Yakuza families to wreak havoc upon.
(Kazuhiro rolls on a blueprint map of the Shibuya district of Tokyo. Among the landmarks are Arcade Ryoko and a few places marked with a red X on them.)
Kazuhiro: The Hamada clan are looking to muscle their way into Shibuya and we need to wipe them out.
Gurentai member #2: What about this place? Arcade Ryoko?
Kazuhiro: Leave that place to me. I will speak with the owner personally.
Gurentai member #3: Wait, you know the owner of that place?
Kazuhiro: Yes. She is my daughter.
(Members of the Gurentai clamor among each other.)
Gurentai member #2: How can you be so sure?
Kazuhiro: Because we share the same name and I’m sure she hasn’t met me in such a long time. But enough of the sentimental crap, we have a Yakuza family to run roughshod against!
(The members of the Gurentai cheer wildly.)
Kazuhiro: Soon enough, the Sakamoto family will be reunited. And I will be the oyabun myself!
(The scene cuts to black, revealing the logo for Lord of the Underground 5. plays in the background as we see illustrations of each character.)

Stage: Haven Academy (BGM: Extracurricular by Jeff Williams)
(We open on the Haven Academy.)
Sun Wukong (v/o): This is the Haven Academy. One of the finest schools in the city of Mistral, where we’re taught how to take down monsters known as the Grimm.
(We cut to Sun Wukong leading his team against a group of several Grimm creatures.)
Sun Wukong (v/o): I’m Sun Wukong. Yeah, I’m named after the monkey king from Chinese mythology, but that’s besides the point. I’m a Faunus, meaning that while I may be a human, I also posses traits of an animal, or in my case, a monkey, in case you didn’t see my tail.
(Sun Wukong and his team fight against the Grimm for a minute. Afterwards, Sun Wukong and his team are victorious.)
Sun Wukong (v/o): The creatures that my team and I fight against are known as Grimm. They’re creatures of destruction and are known to cause havoc wherever they go.
Neptune (voiced by Kerry Shawcross): That takes care of them.
Sage (voiced by Josh Ornelas) : Yeah, there were so many of them.
Sun Wukong: Okay guys, let’s head back. I’m ready to celebrate.
(We see Sun Wukong and his team heading to the cafeteria. Sun Wukong stops as he sees a flyer for the third Glory to the Gods tournament.)
Sun Wukong: Hey, what’s this?
Scarlet (voiced by Gavin Free): It looks like a flyer for the Glory to the Gods tournament.
Sun Wukong: A Glory to the Gods tournament?
Sage: That’s where the world’s best fighters do battle against one another for a huge prize.
Sun Wukong: So?
Neptune: I also hear that Ruby, Weiss, Yang, and especially Blake are going to be there.
Sun Wukong: Really?
Sun Wukong: I need to get in on this myself.
Sage: Are you sure, Sun?
Sun Wukong: I’m more than sure. I’m ready to take on not just Blake, but also the world’s best fighters! Here comes Sun Wukong!
RIVAL FIGHT: Sun Yicheng
(Scene takes place in the New Invictus Arena, which resembles a high tech version of the Roman Colosseum with statues of mythological heroes, gods, and angels placed within the colosseum (all covered in gold). The fans cheer awaiting the next fight.)
Announcer (voiced by Wendee Lee): Ladies and Gentlemen, we are live for the finals of the third Glory to the Gods tournament between the monkey kung fu expert, Sun Wukong and the young Shaolin grandmaster, Sun Yicheng.
Sun Yicheng: Are you truly the Sun Wukong, the monkey king himself?
Sun Wukong: Not really. I just happen to share the same name as him. That, plus I’m a Faunus.
Sun Yicheng: A…Faunus?
Sun Wukong; Yeah, I have a monkey tail.
Sun Yicheng: Interesting…how about you and I test each other’s strength. I want to see if you are like your mythological namesake.
Sun Wukong: You’re on.
SUB-BOSS: Aleister Mordock
(Sun is declared the winner of the tournament. Arthur Lawrence makes his entrance.)
Arthur: Congratulations, young man. You’ve put on a mighty fine performance. Is that tail real?
Sun Wukong: Uh, yeah. I possess traits of the monkey.
Arthur: Impressive and unique. I love it.
Sun Wukong: I was hoping to face someone who had similar traits to myself, but she’s not here.
Arthur: I see, but I’m very sure that she’s proud of you, my boy. I would like to present you your grand prize.
(The golden glow of the arena gives way to macabre blood red hue. A big ring of fire engulfs the top of the colosseum as the statues of the mythological heroes, gods, and angels become statues of demons. A trap door opens as red smoke rises from it and emerges a shadowy figure, who is revealed to be Aleister Mordock.)
Sun Wukong: Who’s that?
Arthur: I’m not sure, but he’s not the one presenting the big check.
Aleister: I am the son of the Fallen Deity. A man birthed from blood and agony. I am Aleister Mordock.
Sun Wukong: Uh, hi. I’m Sun Wukong.
Aleister: I know who you are.
Sun Wukong: You do?
Aleister: Yes. A fitting sacrifice for the Fallen Deity.
Sun Wukong: That doesn’t sound too good.
Aleister: As it should, and you will be made an example.
Sun Wukong: Not if I can beat you.
Aleister: Very well, have it your way. Prepare to die.
FINAL BOSS: Seth Mordock
(Aleister falls to the ground as Sun stands victorious over him.)
Sun Wukong: So much for your sacrifice.
????: And yours is still at hand.
(A shadowy figure walks through the smoke. The figure is revealed to be Seth Mordock.)
Seth: I am Seth Mordock, the Fallen Deity. I see my son Aleister has failed me. I guess I shall be the one to do away with you, whoever you are.
Sun Wukong: Great, another gothic weirdo.
Seth: Do not make light of me, boy! You stand before a god and you shall respect me as such.
Sun Wukong: I’m also named after a deity, too, but unlike you, I don’t go around talking about how much of a god I am.
Seth: That’s because you are no god to begin with.
Sun: I don’t need to show you any of that, just my fists, feet, and my semblance.
Seth: I shall destroy your semblance. Prepare to fall at the hands of a god.
(We see Sun Wukong and Seth still fighting in the colosseum.)
Seth: Give up while you still can, boy!
Sun Wukong: Never. I will defeat you, god or not!
Seth: You can’t kill a god, and I will show you that.
(Seth charges at Sun Wukong and gains the upper hand on him, throwing several fireballs and throws him to the ground.)
Sun Wukong: Argh!
Seth: Hmph, such a pathetic excuse of a fighter. You will be destroyed on this fine day.
(As Seth was about to finish off Sun Wukong, we see Blake Belladonna rush in and attack Seth with a flying kick.)
Sun Wukong: Huh? Blake!
Blake (voiced by Arryn Zech): I figured you’d need my help, Sun.
Sun Wukong: Sure.
Seth: What nonsense is this?
Blake: Seth Mordock, it’s time to put you away!
Seth: I shall take solace in destroying the both of you!
Blake: Ready, Sun?
Sun Wukong: Ready, Blake.
(Sun Wukong and Blake charge at Seth with their weapons drawn, firing and slashing away at him for a minute. Seth becomes overwhelmed.)
Seth: I…I cannot die here!
Blake: Guess again!
(Sun Wukong emits two golden clones that charge at Seth, while Blake joins them. Blake slashes past Seth, allowing the two clones to explode on contact, killing Seth.)
Sun Wukong: Yeah, we did it!
Blake: That takes care of him.
Sun Wukong: Say, how about we celebrate?
(Blake walks past Sun Wukong.)
Sun Wukong: Oh come on, just this once.
Blake: No, Sun.
Sun Wukong: Aw man!
(The screen cuts to black. We see the logo for Invictus 3 as Skyzoo’s “Falling From The Sky” plays in the background as the credits roll and we see illustrations of the characters.)
