How Shinobu joined the Tourney

Shinobu bears a grudge against Travis Touchdown because she believes he murdered her father, though in truth Travis had idolized Shinobu's father so much so that he watched all of Jacobs' tapes until they wore out, but had never actually met him in person. It is likely that Travis' twin brother Henry was the one who killed Shinobu's father, as it isn't until Travis activates his beam katana that Shinobu's overall tolerance of him harshens, proclaiming she will finally avenge her father, as Henry wields a beam katana similar to Travis'. She goes to great lengths to hide her profession as an assassin from her fellow classmates, going so far as to kill a small group of 3661952553 c6d37dfa4e

Shinobu in No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle students who overheard Travis challenging her to a ranking battle. Shinobu specializes in using her katana, even throwing Travis off guard by using her signature move, Sonic Sword. Once half of her health is lost, she periodically attempts a move which kills Travis instantly if he gets too close. After she is defeated, her right forearm was severed by Travis' blade, Travis chooses to spare her life despite her requests to him to kill her and challenges her to kill him in the future.

It is likely that Travis truly could not kill her because of his discomfort in killing a woman, as revealed with his victory against Holly Summers. Shinobu later appears to save Travis from being killed by Jeane.

In No More Heroes: Desperate Struggle, she returns as a playable character for two levels. She first appears right before the assasin battle royale in the UAA office, and her presence is questioned by Travis. Sylvia responds with saying that it was nobody. She then reappears after Travis defeats Dr. Letz Shake, and has been in Asia, won a championship belt, and even refers to Travis as master. Afterwards, Sylvia lets Shinobu take over for Travis in the next two ranks where she kills Million Gunman , and the newly ressurected Destroyman, now known as New Destroyman . Unlike Travis, Shinobu can jump, use a long range attack, and perform an air attack. However, after performing a combo she stops and taunts. After defeating New Destroyman, she tries to make advances on Travis, but Travis turns her down as he does not want to be "like the pervy teacher in a porn". She also appears in the final battle where Jasper Batt, Jr. tricks Travis into thinking she, Henry, and Sylvia are dead.

At an illegal sword fighting tournament, Shinobu runs afoul of a young officer of the Tokugawa, Naomasa Ii, the Red Devil who is seeking it to be shut down.
