Gahahahaha! I'm Iwatooshi!
I'm the naginata that, together with Musashibou Benkei, won against 999 swords! It's impossible for an ordinary human to wield me! Master, I wonder if you'll amuse me!?
Ooh. I didn't notice you since you're too small. I'm Iwatooshi, Musashibou Benkei's naginata! Gahahahaha!
Ha ha ha! Touken Ranbu begins!
Even though I'm a monk, I reek of blood? Hahaha! Sorry sorry. It must be my former master's influence.
Benkei became a yamabushi (山伏) at the age of 17 and guarded the Gojo bridge at Kyoto. He aimed to collect as many katanas as he could from samurais who wanted to pass through the bridge, eventually collecting 999.
Oh, Master is small when compared to me.
What's wrong? Shall we launch a surprise attack in order to gather the swords?
Oops, it seems like it'll be dangerous if I don't rest soon.

Citadel (Kiwame sendoff)
He has his own wishes. Just watch over him.
Very well! I'll hunt the enemy one after another.
I will gratefully use this equipment.
Oops, I wonder if it will suit my physique?

Hahahaha! I have brought things back with me!
Expedition Completed (Leader of Primary Party)
Let's go greet the expedition team!
Repairs (minor injury)
I'm gonna take an afternoon nap.
Repairs (medium/severe injury)
Because it's not the appropriate time to hunt the blades when I'm in this state, huh?
Fufun! The rewards show up.
Master, I wonder how many enemies have you defeated up till now?
Yoshitsune, owner of Ima no Tsurugi, ordered Benkei to guard the mansion as he commit seppuku. It was said that Benkei killed more than 300 soldiers with Iwatooshi.
Ooh! Leave the luggage to me.
Front Lines & Battles
Let's go out to hunt at once!
Hahahaha! It's an unexpected bargain.
Everyone, while the enemy is off-guard, let's use the opportunity to raid them!
Hahahaha, I wonder whom should I hunt first!
Hahahaha! Even though it's not an actual battle, it'll be good if it's fun!
('Dooryaaaa' is a meaningless battle cry)
Hahahaha! Am I terrifying?!
Benkei was said to have been born with hideous looks and a large physique. At the age of 6 Benkei contracted small pox and from then on his face turned dark and, hence, "terrifying".
Feels like a mosquito bite.
Aah? Did something prick me just now?
Hahaha! That's more like it! Let me have more fun!
This is the duel! Accept your life!
Hohoo, this presence is pretty good! Looks like there'll be no shortage for the hunt!
Gahahahaha! Looks like I have hunted down the achievement!
Gahahaha! I wonder if I look increasingly large?!
As the weapon that has hunted down so many blades, this is inevitably my fate, huh...
Internal Affairs Please go here for special Internal Affairs interactions
Good, good, don't be scared!
Fuh, just not scaring the horses alone gave me a hard time.
Physical labor, huh?! Just leave it to me!
I'm looking forward to the harvest!
Here, I'll lend you my chest! Come and attack me!
Gahahaha! I had a good time!
