Ninja Gaiden II: Dark Sword of ChaosEdit
Jaquio is initially mentioned by Ashtar, who was apparently the Jaquio's boss all along through the events of the first game.
After Ashtar is defeated by the Dragon Ninja Ryu, Jaquio reveals himself somehow fully resurrected. He takes Irene hostage and grievously wounds the US Army agent, Robert T. Sturgeon. He soon meets Ryu in a demonic altar, and reveals that the energy of the spirit of the Demon flowed into his body after their last battle, resurrecting him, and giving him unfathomable evil power.
Despite his powers he is beaten by Ryu. However, his blood flowing out touches the cursed blade of the Sword of Chaos, and it sucks the life out of Irene. The gates of Hell are thrown open and the revived Jaquio takes on the form of a demon. He challenges Ryu, and is once again defeated by the Dragon Ninja. After his defeat, the Sword of Chaos is destroyed and the Hell Gate is sealed, as the castle collapses.

- Jaquio's name is mentioned in the OAV by Robert spelled Jakyo.
