Nobu Yoshioka is a recurring character in the live action series Daredevil, played by Peter Shinkoda.[9] The character was initially named Hachiro but this gets changed shortly before filming began, and is depicted with similarities to Kirigi.[10] In season one, he is a representative of the Hand and one of the people responsible for Wilson Fisk's criminal empire.[11] Nobu attempts to smuggle a child known as "Black Sky" into the city with Fisk's aid but Matt Murdock and Stick prevent this, with Stick killing the child.[12] Angered by Murdock's constant interference, Nobu later attacks Matt, severely wounding the vigilante before Nobu is defeated by being set on fire, apparently killing him.[13]

In season two, Nobu returns from the dead, albeit with a scarred face. He battles Daredevil once more, but the vigilante manages to hold his own and forces Nobu to flee.[14] The Hand kidnap and tortures Stick, but Daredevil and Elektra arrive and battle him. Nobu reveals that Elektra is the new Black Sky, and is convinced that Daredevil is the only thing standing between the Hand's total domination.[15] Nobu later fights Daredevil and Elektra.
