Sanada Yukimura is one of the poster boys for this series, along with Date Masamune. He's actually one of the most distinguished warriors in the Sengoku Era who opposes Tokugawa Ieyasu to the end. He wields two jūmonji-yari.

He appears in Sengoku BASARA 4 as a playable character. He is initially playable within the game.

DescriptionEdit

Yukimura's hot-blooded and "battle-crazy" character contrasts strongly with the Oushuu head's cool demeanor. In Yukimura's life battle is everything. His master and revered idol, to whom he's fanatically loyal, Takeda Shingen, is the commander of one of the strongest armies of the Sengoku. Shingen's method of educating Yukimura consists of punching him and giving him life lessons (always with battle metaphors). Probably because of this, Yukimura is incredibly naive and completely ignorant of anything related to the opposite sex, leading him to be made fun of by Maeda Keiji, cringe in horror at the Maedas' lovey-dovey antics, and have humorous conversations with his ninja subordinate, the lazy and aloof captain of the Sanada Ten Braves, Sarutobi Sasuke. Another remarkable quality of his personality, mostly shown in the anime, is also his respectful manner of speaking: always adding an honorific when addressing someone, e.g., -sama, or -dono.

Yukimura's way of fighting is 100% "frontal", one-on-one, with no tricks or cheating. His ideal is to walk the path of the warrior, and constantly searches for new possibilities to test his skills (preferably by battling Date Masamune), all the while supporting his master's goal to enter the capital and conquer the country.

It is revealed in Yukimura's blue path in Sengoku Basara Samurai Heroes that despite Shingen being one of the more powerful leaders in the country, financially speaking the Takeda army is completely broke.


Story eventsEdit

In Sengoku BASARA the animated series , Yukimura plays a role as one of the main character alongside the lord of Oshu, Date Masamune and Maeda Keiji, as well in Sengoku Basara 2 . Throughout the first series, Yukimura serves Takeda Shingen through and through. Once Shingen had suffered a wound in his battle with Mitsuhide, which left him unable to battle, Yukimura felt devastated.

Quote "I feel as if I don't know what to do anymore."

Date Masamune quickly snaps him out of it as they rush to put an end to Oda.

In Sengoku BASARA 2, Yukimura starts to see how their actions affect the people around them and wants to know how much longer must he fight before peace can be achieved.

GameplayEdit

In Sengoku BASARA 3, Yukimura's style seems to lean on continuously attacking. Yukimura gains a new attack - a simple thrust with the right spear- that acts as a "connector" for other attacks. This attack is used as a dash attack (attack button while dashing) or as a follow-up attack for his skills (press the attack button at the end of the skill). While the thrust attack is not as spectacular as most of his other attack, it can be followed-up with his normal combo with little to no delay. Thus, it's possible to perform his S-String -> use a skill -> follow-up thrust -> S-String -> skill -> follow-up thrust and so on. This allows players to pull off long combos as long as Yukimura can still attack.

Additionally, some of Yukimura's skill also become usable in mid-air, and it is still possible to follow-up with his thrust attack with them.

WeaponsEdit

  • Sunset - A normal pair of spears with weak attack power and defense.
  • Bloodtooth - A better pair of spears than Sunset with poor attack power and defense.
  • Phoenix - A fiery pair of spears with medium attack power and weak defense that cause extra fire damage to enemies.
  • Salamander - A special pair of spears with low attack power and very high defense. Combos are easier to achieve since they add an extra hit to every "primed" enemy struck with them.
  • Rebirth - These have the same properties as Phoenix, but with much higher attack power and medium defense.
  • Sparda - Twin spear-like versions of the legendary sword belonging to Dante in Devil May Cry.

Historical informationEdit

Hist23

Sanada Yukimura

Sanada Saemon-no-Suke Yukimura
(真田 左衛門佐 幸村, ) 1567 – July 3, 1615

Was a Japanese samurai, second son of the Sanada Masayuki. His proper name was Sanada Nobushige(真田 信繁), named after Takeda Shingen's younger brother Takeda Nobushige (武田 信繁). Unlike the Yukimura in this game the real Yukimura never fought at Shingen's side as he was only seven at the time of his masters death, but his father Sanada Masayuki was a talented vassal and general to the Takeda clan.

After the destruction of the Takeda clan by Oda Nobunaga the Sanada clan including the young Yukimura yielded to the Oda clan but they freed themselves after Oda's death. The clan was surrounded by hostile clans so in order to survive they changed loyalty to the one with the most power. Eventually they became the vassals of Toyotomi Hideyoshi who is said to have shown extreme care and hospitality to the young Yukimura even giving him the right to use the name of the Toyotomi clan.

After Hideyoshi's death Yukimura joined the Western army while his older brother joined the Eastern army. This proved to be a smart move because no matter who won the war the Sanada clan would survive.

Yukimura died at Osaka castle where his forces were greatly outnumbered by the invading Tokugawa forces. In the intense fighting Yukimura was badly wounded, leaving him exhausted. Soldiers from the opposing army quickly went to Sanada. Now too tired to fight back, Yukimura allowed the men to kill him, reportedly saying, "Go on, take my head as your trophy".

After Yukimura's death, the Katakura clan took care the rest of his offspring, and one of Yukimura's daughters also became Katakura Kojuro's daughter-in-law.
