The shogun gives Retsudo Yagyu (Minoru Ohki) an ultimatum to get rid of his (& all Yagyus') arch-enemy Itto Ookami (Tomisaburo Wakayama) & his little son Daigoro (Akihiro Tomikawa), & when Retsudo fails again, the shogun will officially declare him a criminal & sanctionize his demise ,... & the Yagyu-clan will lose face.

As Ookami has already killed all of Lord Retsudo's sons, he sends his daughter, Kaori (Junko Hitomi), master of the flying dagger - a technique that involves juggling & throwing of daggers -, to get rid of him. She soon finds Ookami & Daigoro, & makes friends with Daigoro to get close to his father, but he has seen through her pretense long before she attacks him, & to put her technique out of action, Ookami carries Daigoro on his head (as the falling dagger technique involves a dagger splitting the opponent's head, faling from above ... & soon Kaori ends up dead.

Desperately, Lord Retsudo turns to Hyouei (Isao Kimura) his son born out of wedlock, to help him get rid of Ookami, but Hyouei despises his father & the whole Yagyu clant, who never have accepted him, & agrees to get rid of Ookami only to with his own clan, the Tsuchigumo, a macabre clan that doesn't even shy away from burying its fighters alive to improve their fighting skills. & the Tsuchigumo have quite a mean way to get to Ookami too, to first kill off all the people in his vicinity to strauin his nerves, & only when they think he is suitably nervy (& has since retreated into the wilderness to not cause anymore innocent deaths), does Hyouei attack him ... but before long ends up with a blade in his back ... but begs Ookami not to kill him until he has fulfilled his destiny. Ookami agrees, even if that destiny is raping his sister Azusa (Mayumi Yamaguchi) to impregnate her ... but Retsudo, when he sees his son fucking his daughter kills them both.

Then Retsudo tries to bring Hyouei's 3 killers (who have been buried alive) under his control, but they refuse to work for the Yagyus & try to kill Ookami on their own, but of course meet their ends at his hands instead.

Now it's all out war of everyone against Ookami & Daigoro, in the snow, so many of Retsudo's samurais are on skies (!), while Ookami demonstrates that Daaigoro's baby cart can not only be used as machine gun & protection against bullets but also as sleigh.

To little szurprise, but with all the more panache, Ookami slaughters his way through Retsudo's men, & in the very end has slain another army, only Lord Retsudo has yet again escaped.

 

The last of the Baby Cart films is also the most bizarre, almost surreal one, full of weird to macabre details, from the buried alive assassins to rocket launchers or (in a scene at the graveyard) freshly killed corpses breaking through stone walls or dagger juggling swordswoman, & the showdown in the snow on skies is, while being anything but authentic, just great fun (& greatly done, too, by the way). So, if anyone might say it's silly, I fully agree, but it's also greatly enjoyable (for open-minded, childish people like me at least).
