Jubei Yagyu is the main hero of Onimusha 2: Samurai's Destiny. As the first leader of the Yagyu clan seen in the series and originator of Shin-in style sword combat, he was born as Sougen but later given the name Jubei as a child, a tradition which would continue as seen with his granddaughter. His father was the late Head of the Yagyu clan, who was seduced and had a child by a woman who disappeared shortly thereafter. Jubei never knew his mother.

Onimusha 2: Samurai's DestinyEdit

After a period of solitary training, Jubei sensed an ominous feeling and returned to Yagyu village to find it destroyed, without any survivors. Shortly afterwards, he was beckoned by a strange Oni woman called Takajo, who introduced herself as Jubei's mother. She told him about his Oni lineage and that Nobunaga Oda and the Genma were behind the attack. Jubei goes to Imasho, a place between Nobunaga's Mino, Azai Nagamasa's Omi and Yoshikage Asakura's Echizen. While in this town Jubei meets Ekei Ankokuji, Magoichi Saiga, Kotarō Fūma and Oyu, and over the course of the game, forms a realtionship with all of them. Jubei embraced his Oni powers and eventually defeated Nobunaga in a climactic battle. But this Jubei's actions only slowed down Nobunaga's scheme as he lacked the means to contain the warlord's Genma spirit.

Onimusha Blade WarriorsEdit

During the events of Onimusha: Blade Warriors, Samanosuke Akechi and Kaede team up with Jubei and some of his teammates.

Onimusha 3: Demon SiegeEdit

In Onimusha 3: Demon Siege it was reported that Jubei had gone into hiding after Hideyoshi Hashiba sent ninjas after his head. It mentions that Jubei was spotted leaving on a ship to the West. It was also said that Jubei was spotted traveling with Oichi near Omi province, but this rumour was dubious.

Onimusha: Dawn of DreamsEdit

Jubei does not appear in Onimusha: Dawn of Dreams and he is now an elder of Yagyu village. Once again challenging the demons, he sent his young granddaughter Akane to assassinate his corrupt son Munenori Yagyū, who has allied himself with the Genma.
