Morimoto is the samurai that killed Xena so that she could defeat Yodoshi. He had an army of over 10,000 men, that Xena herself managed to wipe out single-handedly.
He was killed by Gabrielle (Using the Chakram), after he confronted her atop Mount Fuji.
- Seeing as Xena was already dead, Morimoto's death marked the final on-screen death in the Xenaverse.
- He is one of only two characters to have visibly killed a horse in the series, the other being Xena.
