"Bleeding Out" is the fourth mission in the The Ronin story arc in Saints Row 2.

Aisha rumored to be dead ...again!
Stilwater Gazette newspaper headline


Following on from "Road Rage", Jyunichi and a small group of Ronin have set up a trap in Aisha's house for Johnny Gat and Playa. As The Ronin wait to ambush the duo upon their return, Jyunichi has a brief conversation with Aisha, who he has taken captive and tied to a chair. Jyunichi gives her his word that should she help him, he will let her live. As Gat and Playa enter, however, Jyunichi draws his Samurai Sword and, realizing that helping The Ronin would result in Gat's death, Aisha calls out to him, warning him of the trap; Jyunichi promptly turns around and kills her before she finishes her sentence. A fight ensues, which results in all of The Ronin aside from Jyunichi being killed. Jyunichi escapes, but not before impaling Gat in his stomach with a Samurai Sword, leaving him for dead.[1]

Playa calls a fellow 3rd Street Saints gang member to pick them up and take them to the Stilwater Memorial Hospital. Holding off the approaching Ronin, Playa reaches the hospital, where Gat is taken inside by the doctors. Playa calls Pierce and orders him to find when Kazuo Akuji is arriving in Stilwater.[2]


The following text has been transcribed verbatim from the game files.
Upon completion of the Mission, it is available in-game at Newspaper Clipboards.

In a stunning turn of events, legendary pop singer Aisha was found murdered in a suburban home years after being officially declared dead. When asked, Chief Troy Bradshaw declined to answer if he knew that (until recently) Aisha was still alive.


Bleeding Out - Ronin vehicle destroyed
Protect Gat until the ambulance arrives.

Protect Johnny Gat for 45 seconds until the ambulance arrives. There is little cover here aside from the low wall behind Gat, but The Ronin here are easily killed.

Wait until help comes

After the ambulance fails to turn up, hold off The Ronin a little longer and Playa phones a gang member to come and pick them up.

Kill the Ronin before help arrives

Kill the two marked lieutenants who turn up and, soon after, the gang member arrives in a Hammerhead to escort Gat and Playa to Stilwater Memorial Hospital.

Protect the car with the rocket launcher until you get to the hospital

Protect the car as a passenger, while the Saints gang member drives them to a hospital. A RPG Launcher with infinite ammo is provided, but due to numerous Ronin roadblocks, the long drive takes them through most of the Suburbs and Suburbs Expansion. Regardless, the drive itself isn't particularly difficult. The mission ends when the car arrives at the hospital.

The Stilwater Gazette newspaper clipping from the completion screen and Newspaper Clipboard.

  • Deleted content includes a phone call to the hospital at the beginning of the mission, which has Playa demand they bring an ambulance out.
  • The door of Aisha's house in this cutscene is a wooden brown door. Outside of the mission, it is a white door with a window.[3]
  • The Hammerhead used to transport Gat is a unique light-purple variant with a white stripe.
  • The gang member who drives the Hammerhead always has the same male voice, even if they are a female.
  • It is possible to replay this mission with Johnny Gat as a Homie via the Newspaper Clipboard, with two Johnnys present for the first portion of the mission. However, all Homies are automatically dismissed for the driving portion.
  • Sometimes, the Hammerhead drives through the roadblock in Tidal Spring, instead of performing a U-turn.
  • During the "That Which Does Not Kill You..." cutscene, there is an Ambulance parked in an impossible place, bisected by a wall.


"House Party" cutsceneEdit

Aisha is tied to a chair. Jyunichi is sitting across from her.
Jyunichi: "I don't take much pleasure in this."
Aisha: "Then let me go."
Jyunichi: "That depends on you..."
Outside, Johnny Gat and Playa are walking towards Aisha's house.
Playa: "Aisha doesn't care that I'm stoppin' by does she?"
Johnny Gat: "Fuck no, Aisha doesn't go out much ...she loves company."
Back inside, Aisha looks at Jyunichi, fear in her eyes
Aisha: "You're going to kill me, aren't you?"
Jyunichi: "If you're calm, help us find the money, and do what I say... I give you my word you will live."
Outside, Johnny notices Aisha's door is ajar. He quickly pulls a pistol and approaches the door, followed by Playa. He slowly pushes his way inside.
Johnny Gat: "Eesh, you home?"
Jyunichi signals to Aisha to be quiet, and signals the Ronin in him to get into ambush position. He slowly draws one of his katana. Aisha looks at the katana, then makes a decision and shouts a warning.
Aisha: "Johnny it's a tr-"
Jyunichi instantly turns around and kills her. The flowers that were cut from the strike, fall to the ground
Johnny Gat: "Eesh!"
Johnny is disarmed by a Ronin, but Gat punches his neck as he suffocates, stabs him with his own sword and starts a sword battle with Jyunichi while Playa shoots the other Ronin members. One of which, sees Johnny and aims at him, but Jyunichi disarms him with his other sword.
Jyunichi (subtitle): "*speaks Japanese*"
Jyunichi (audio): "俺のだ!"
Jyunichi (translation: "He's mine!"
Gat and Jyunichi keep sword fighting as Playa shoots the remaining Ronin and sees Gat.
Jyunichi: "*screams*"
Playa: "Gat, get outta the way!"
Jyunichi stabs Gat, who had been distracted by Playa, then smiles smugly. Playa tries to fire, but finds that the gun is empty as Gat soon slams both of his hands onto Jyunichi's head, causing the latter to let go of the sword and run as Playa reloads and fires at him.
Johnny Gat: "Get back here!"
Gat removes the sword but collapses and Playa pulls out his phone.
Johnny Gat: "Yells aggressively"
Playa: "We gotta get you to a hospital..."
