Note:

The Onibaba is female demon in Japanese folklore known for her indomitable strength and appetites. Though popular culture views her as a flesh-eating hag, the nice thing about metaphors is that if you want to compare a female samurai’s fighting skill to that of the Onibaba you can always say later that it seemed like a good idea at the time.
