Though the Ninjas can't die in the final game, it appears that at some point the possibility of Kasumi dying was at least considered as this unused line by Hanzo when he shows up before the attack on Gregminster shows.
|By the way, Commander McDohl, I don't see Kasumi...
I see. Let us say it was the fate of a ninja.
When Varkas and Sydonia join up there's a banquet held to celebrate. In the final game only a couple of characters attend, but it appears there were plans for all mandatory recruits up to this point to attend as they all have lines, as well as Gremio having an alternate one.

|Big Brother acts without thinking, so I always have to watch out for him.|

The time for battle is nearing.
To organize the Liberation Army in the most efficient way,
may I suggest we divide it into five battalions, appointing a general for each.

who will constitute the core of our army.
