Onibi: The Fire Within (鬼火) is a 1997 Japanese film directed by Rokuro Mochizuki.


After serving 27 years in prison, Yakuza Kunihiro (Yoshio Harada) is released to find his old bosses are all dead. The only member of his Yakuza family that even remembers he existed is his former underling Tanigawa (Show Aikawa), who has since advanced in rank. Unfortunately, Tanigawa's loyalty can only get Kunihiro a position as a driver for the family. However, it isn't long before Kunihiro's value as a tough guy comes to the surface, and he begins to assert his rightful position at the expense of the Yakuza that disrespected him.
