Or Blind Fury is of Zatoichi Challenged or The Outrage, which I've never seen (but would like to), is of Rashomon.

A bit of trivia -- in Yojimbo, Kurosawa has his ronin (anti-)hero imitate a knife trick of James Coburn's in Mag Seven, the remake of Kurosawa's Seven Samurai. It goes around and around.
