The movie begins with the flashback of Snake 20 years ago. He saw his father getting killed by an assassin after the dice rolled by him indicated 2 ones, which meant death. Snake ran away from the scene with the thought of revenge in his mind.

Fast forward to 20 years, now snake participates in underground fights where he impressed a Yakuza boss named Kenta. Kenta offers to find the killer of his father’s identity and in return, he has to steal an ancestral talisman.

Snake had only a single goal of finding the killer and he accepted Kenta’s proposal. However, he couldn’t have imagined what kind of ominous deal he had made which questioned his consciousness.

Why Did Kenta Want Talisman?

Kenta belonged to Arshikage Clan and he wanted to become its next leader. However, his brother Tommy stood in his path. In the past, he tried to have Tommy killed but he failed and hence he had to leave the clan.

Kenta wanted to give this talisman to Cobra who would utilize its power to rule the world. Well at least that’s what the deal was but Kenta was looking to betray them from the start. He simply used their aid in running his operation and when he got his hands on Talisman, he betrayed them.

Identity of Assassin

The assassin was Augustin who was appointed by Cobra to take care of Snake’s father. His father fell on the wrong side of Cobra hence they were chasing him down. With revenge in his mind, Snake approached Augustin however, he decided not to kill since the assassin just relayed the order. Now his ultimate goal was to get rid of Cobra.
