Shingen Takeda (voiced by Kenji Hamada)

The great daimyo headquartered in Kai.

Kenshin Uesugi (voiced by Kazuyuki Okitsu)

The great daimyo headquartered in Echigo.

The noble courageous general referred to as the “God of War.” In order to advocate “the path of righteousness” that he believes in, he works to expand his noble war to every region. The way he pursues his own path in life would have a large impact on Mitsuhide as well.

Hisahide Matsunaga (voiced by Kouji Ishii)

The great daimyo of Yamato.

While he has the demeanor of a gentleman, he would not balk at the idea of slaying a shogun if it was in the pursuit of creating his ideal world. He views Mitsuhide as a person of exceptional talent who is fit to be a part of the ideal world he believes in.
