Unfortunately, Yasuke's stint as a samurai didn't last long, as Nobunaga got himself killed when his own general overthrew him. After seeking out Nobunaga's son, only to find he'd met a similar fate, Yasuke decided he'd had quite enough of this s**t and tracked down the usurping general, who scoffed that Yasuke was a "beast" and not worth even killing. So here's the big finale where Yasuke proves that guy wrong with a vengeance ... though not in the way you think. This "mindless beast" opted for peace, laid down his sword, and returned to the Jesuits, never to be heard from again. The high road doesn't make for a great movie ending, we know. Maybe in the adaptation, they'll have Yasuke kill the general with some sort of primitive rocket instead.
