Early life

A Ronin was given the Sword of Doom by Muramasa who's evil spirit passed into the blade. Upon drawing the blade, he became possessed by the evil, within becoming the Black Samurai. He battled the Green Dragon, who wielded the Sword of Fate. In the end the Samurai was defeated and sealed within the Sword of Doom.

Scooby-Doo! and the Samurai Sword

Miss Miramoto intended to free the Black Samurai, who she believed will serve her upon release. However, once freed, he turned on her, stating he serves no one and intent to rule the world. Fortunately, Shaggy Rogers and Scooby Doo with the Sword of Fate (much to the surprise of the Black Samurai) arrived to stop him. After a hard battle, Scooby defeated the Black Samurai by breaking the Sword of Doom in half. When it broke, he became the old samurai, and he could die in peace.
