The Line What are the Killer
7? The Message Target What is the Yakumo?
Who is Emir?
Harman Smith & Kun Lan Hand in Killer 7 End note
Disclaimer:The following is my interpretation of the Killer 7
What are the Killer 7?
One of the most common
misconceptions about the game Killer 7, is that most individuals
have been led to believe that the game actually revolved around an elite god like crew of super human
In reality the Killer 7 were really just lies of convenience
instigated by the government.
In order to perpetuate the myth of an elite crew of assassins known
as the Killer 7 who's sole allegiance is to the United States of
The K7 are just a plot device within the
context of the game..
Killer7 are only useful as a marionette that is being puppeteered
by an individual with the bigger "picture" of the world.
If Killer 7 were a weapon they would be the atom bomb that puts a
stop to the war & all conflicts.
However just like an atom bomb.
Weapons of mass destruction are often only used for political
advantage which in turn breeds more war rather than putting a stop
K7 is like a wild card without the guidance of
the government, because they (Emir) are able to operate with free
rein with little to no regard of what the consequences may be.
The choice Emir makes about Matsuken's fate is the one moment in
the game that the Killer7 have the ability to operate outside of
(Mostly because Emir resurfaced as the dominant persona.)
The game "Killer7" is more about the world that
created the Killer 7 & how social hierarchies/class systems are
created & maintained through the use of the manipulation of
information that creates a fabricated law & order.
Without the Killer 7 there would be no need for
the governments of Japan & the USA to try to manipulate them in
order to gain the upper hand between the power struggle of the two
(A power struggle which was orchestrated by a third party, not
affiliated with either the United States or Japan.)
The K7 work merely as a
plot device, because they're main function in the game is to show
you the corruption of the governments/Entertainment Media in the
world & how it's come to the point that lies of convenience
have been formed in order to keep stability & harmony in
However that harmony in question was all based around a system of
lies,deceit & false advertising.
That's where the "Kun Lan" idea comes in with his Heaven
In Hand in Killer 7 it's been said that Kun Lan is trying to
destabilize the current power structure through
Killer 7 was basically a critique on Japan.
The entirety of the game itself is a political metaphor.
The message is plain & clear.
Two of the most prominent messages that come to mind are
1. Killer 7 is saying that Japan needs to amend
Article 9 of the so called peace constitution.
Because if they don't Japan will be doomed to meet the same fate
they did in Killer 7.
(If you kill Matsuken during the ending of Killer 7, you will be directed to a cutscene of the United States bombing Battleship/Gunkajima island.)
I simply call this political quagmire as Asian politics since the three key players
(China,Korea, & Japan. India is also another big player, but they aren't acting retarded like the other 3.)
are all using the same tactic of "disinformation & manipulation of the human psyche" to the masses.
Japan tries to do it through logic, & reason, whereas Korea & China have suceeded by manipulating the mind,ego & nationalism of the masses.
To the point that even foreiners outside of Asia have also conformed to the same view of asia that has been propagated by China & Korea.
Allow moi to put it in perspective, Japan is a country without an
They only have self defense troops.
If a country such as China or North Korea were to launch nuclear
pulsars at Japan.
(As was shown in Killer 7.)
Japan's only hope for defense is within the hope that the United
States will not back off on it's promise/agreement during the peace
If such an event ever did occur, would the United States feel that
it is within their best interest to comply with an agreement that
they made over 30 yrs. ago?
The above blog post goes into further detail.
2. Killer 7 is also saying that our history, laws & government were all based off a series of lies which were created in order to keep the higher echelons of civilization at the top of the food chain. Under constructioN.

The first target is just a prelude & it's only there to
introduce you to the game.
What is the Yakumo?
The Yakumo was a modified cabinet policy
which was created in order to bring (political) power back to the
The right wing if given complete control will bring power back to
the Japanese military forces.
The entirety of Killer 7 has you (Garcian Smith) scouring the globe
in search for the Yakumo.
This led him from Japan to Texas.
After Texas the United States obtained the Yakumo, but it was then
secured in the hands of Matsuken.
A member of the Japanese United Nations party.
Who is Emir?
Learn more about Emir
The game's main focus was not Emir's personal
It's more about the shape of the environment & how our world is
shaped & controlled through the use of disinformation.
Unfortunately the majority of the Killer 7 fan base have been
misdirected & confused by mis information which has been laced
through out the entire game.
Which is ironic in itself.
This is why I say that you need to look at the
The "line" being the political story arc in Killer 7.
When you look at this game through a political point of view &
all the cut scenes as physical metaphors of the political messages
that both Iwazaru & Travis convey through out the game.
The game Killer 7 starts to look more realistic & possible
rather than that crazy religiously Christian slanted "The one"
rebirth of black Jesus christ that the English speaking Killer 7
audiences seem to always regurgitate.
While the amendment of article 9 of the
Japanese/United States peace constitution may be unimportant to all
of us non Japanese. The other main political message in Killer 7 of
our governments being controlled through well placed disinformation
& lies of convenience should be relevant to all of us world
