This character's name appears in the 1954 Akira Kurosawa movie, Seven Samurai. The other characters that appear in Factions are Gorobei, Kyuzo and Shichiroji. There are also minor characters in the movie called Manzo and Yohei, although it's possible that these two may have been coincidentally named.
Kikuchiyo was played by veteran Japanese actor, Toshiro Mifune.
