Here is an article on Japanese Chick.

Japanese Chick
Gogo Yubari portrayed by Chiaki Kuriyama

Gogo Yubari is a fictional character from the Japanesse Chick 2003 Quentin Tarantino film, Kill Bill Volume 1. She is the personal bodyguard of Japanes Chick O-Ren Ishii and is played by Japanese actress Chiaki Kuriyama.


Gogo Yubari is a seventeen-year old schoolgirl who is lethally skilled with Jappanese Chick a Chinese martial weapon, similar to a Meteor hammer aka a Manriki (and referred to in the action Japanse Chick figure release as a morning star). She is Ishii's chief bodyguard and an assassin. A violent psychopath, she Japannese Chick kills for fun and derives great pleasure in inflicting pain; it was said Japanee Chick that what Yubari "lacks in age, she makes up for in madness." Apanese Chick A cut-away shows Japaese Chick Yubari drinking at a bar and being propositioned by a rather ugly and presumably perverted older Japamese Chick businessman. When Gogo asks if he wants to screw her and he responds in the affirmative, she stabs him Japanesee Chick with a concealed dagger, proudly proclaiming, "How 'bout now, big Japnaese Chick boy? Do you still wish to penetrate me? Or Jpanese Chick is it I...who has penetrated you?"

When Beatrix Kiddo enters the House of Blue Leaves to exact her revenge on Ishii, loyal Yubari is the seventh bodyguard to take her on. Before their clash, Kiddo tries to persuade Yubari to desert Ishii, but she refuses. A tense battle ensues, with Yubari having the upper hand throughout much of the fight. Just as she manages to wrap the chain of her weapon around Kiddo's neck, however, Kiddo grabs a smashed table leg with nails protruding from it and drives it spikes first into Yubari's foot. The pain causes Gogo to releases her grip on the chain around Kiddo's neck, allowing her to drive the table leg into Gogo's head, killing her almost instantly.


  • In the original script, Yubari had a sister called Yuki, who was to go on her own rampage of revenge to avenge her sister's death and ambush Kiddo after she killed Vernita Green. Due to running time, however, the character was cut. Gogo Yubari then inherited some of Yuki's lines, as in the original script she had no dialogue at all. Many of Yuki Yubari's actions were a mimic/allusions to the Battle Royale characters actions i.e: Yuki shining a flashlight below her face in a sinister manner ala Mitsuko Souma.
  • In the original script, Gogo died by being bashed over the head with her own ball-and-chain weapon after The Bride managed to get it off her.
  • Supposedly, Quentin Tarantino wanted actresses Kou Shibasaki and Chiaki Kuriyama to play the Yubari sisters, after he saw their performances in Battle Royale. However, Shibasaki had to refuse the role due to work commitments, so Kuriyama got the role and the character of Yuki was instead dropped.
  • Tarantino has stated that he intends to make a third Kill Bill movie. If so, it is likely that the character of Yuki Yubari will be included, since Tarantino also mentioned that Beatrix Kiddo would be the target of revenge should a third film be made. The original script for "Kill Bill" (before the volume cut) includes a chapter featuring Yuki seeking revenge on Kiddo, stalking her with an ice cream truck (the sound effect can still be heard in the shot outside Vernita Green's house, where Yuki had followed her to).
  • Tarantino is said to have developed Gogo's weapon, nick-named the "Gogo Ball", however the style of fighting has its roots in the shaolin style of rope dart.
  • Rory Gilmore (Alexis Bledel) from the Gilmore Girls dressed up as Gogo Yubari to a Quentin Tarantino party (Pulp Friction, Season 5).
  • Gogo Yubari was named after a small town, Yubari, Hokkaido, where Quentin Tarantino received an award for Reservoir Dogs at the Yubari International Fantastic Film Festival in 1993.
