Rōnin was a samurai with no lord or master. A samurai
became masterless because of the death or bankruptcy of his master, by
losing his master's favor. A warrior having no obligations to his
master, purposelessly wandering around like a sea wave – that’s rōnin, a
title that literally translates as “wave-man”.
Many of them liked their new lifestyle, as it granted far more freedom.
Rōnins were ideal warriors because they had to rely on their own strength and be always prepared for a fight.
Rōnin’s equipment unlike that of Samurai was quite simple – only the most essential items. It's because they did not receive a salary.
Samurai as shown in Kurosawa's film "Seven Samurai" were actually Rōnins. They agreed to protect the villagers for food.
