Karate Kiba is a martial-arts film starring Sonny Chiba, released in 1976.

A recut version was released in the U.S. as Chiba the Bodyguard.

Samuel L. Jackson's character in the movie Pulp Fiction recites a creed partly based on Ezekiel 25:17, beginning, "The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities (sic) of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men," and ending, "...and you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee." This creed was originally used as the opening scroll in the Sonny Chiba movie, Karate Kiba[1] (English title: The Bodyguard), substituting the words, "...and they shall know that I am Chiba the Bodyguard...," in the above passage.
