Yumeji Kurokouchi (黒河内 夢路, Kurokōchi Yumeji) is the sub boss in Samurai Shodown V.
Yumeji is unique to the roster due to having no definite gender; the developers to the game, Yuki Enterprise, entreated players to "believe whatever you believe Yumeji to be". To add to the confusion, Yumeji speaks in gender neutral Japanese in both official story and in-game text and Yumeji's seiyū has a history of voicing for both genders. Due to the openness of the statement, players still argue over Yumeji's gender to this day. The art director for the game, Dorio Takaya, affectionately nicknamed Yumeji as "Souji" - a reference to the Shinsengumi captain, Okita Sōji.
Yumeji is voiced by Mitsuki Saiga.
Yumeji is the sole successor of Sakon Kurokouchi, a sensei of iaijutsu and the previous mentor of Ukyo Tachibana. However, for a dubious reason concerning body issues, Yumeji was expelled from the family dojo and living facility. Yumeji follows Gaoh and swears to serve him as his "right arm". In the end, Yumeji is defeated by Ukyo, and begged for death, to avert disgrace. Ukyo, however, only cuts off a part of Yumeji's ponytail and orders the defeated swordsperson home. Instead, Yumeji becomes a nun. One year after Gaoh's defeat, Yumeji tricks and beheads Rasetsumaru. Yumeji's father and the rest of his disciples were later slain by Zankuro Minazuki.
