Saizo: Kotaro of will now answer to me.
Kotaro: I answer to no one. Who are you to suggest otherwise?

Kotaro: Saizo...that's familiar. I believe I've murdered others of your pitiful lineage.
Saizo: You—! How dare you! My father was an honorable man.
Kotaro: Honorable? Maybe. Weak? Definitely. That balding old fool had the audacity to lecture ME! So naturally...I put an end to his life.
Saizo: I knew you were the one responsible for his death. Coward!
Kotaro: Bwahaha! Isn't this a stroke of luck? To fell both father and son with the same blade... How poetic!
Saizo: I'm about to rewrite your poem...
Kotaro: Please. If you're anything like your father, you won't land a single blow!

— Saizo fighting Kotaro in any of his appearances.
Saizo: Lord Ryoma...
Ryoma: You would point your blade at me, Saizo? Have you truly joined Avatar and betrayed your liege?
Saizo: No. My loyalty lies with you and you alone. However, I feel that you are blinded to the real enemy among us. I do not think I am betraying you now. My actions will show you...
Ryoma: Hmph... So even you have had your heart swayed by Corrin.
Saizo: That may be the case. In time, yours will, too. I must get past you, though. The fate of this town requires it. Please, find it in your heart to forgive me for what I must do...

— Saizo fighting Ryoma in Revelation Chapter 13.

Corrin: I wouldn't want it any other way.

— Saizo fighting Corrin in Conquest Chapter 12.
Saizo: Kaze... I never thought I'd live to see my own brother betray us. As your twin, and a proud ninja serving the great kingdom of Hoshido... I want you to know that I am truly ashamed of you and your actions.
Kaze: Saizo, we have been close since the moment we were born. I never wished to disappoint you, but I stand by my decision. Say what you will---I have no regrets. I proudly side with Corrin..
Saizo: You are a fool, Brother. I will show you the error of your ways!

— Saizo fighting Kaze in Conquest Chapter 12.
