Takeda Shingen is a character introduced in the first Sengoku BASARA. In Devil Kings, he is also known as Red Minotaur.

DescriptionEdit

~この信玄、天地を喰らう虎とならん!~

~I, Shingen, shall become a tiger dominating over Heaven and Earth!~


Leader of the Takeda clan, famous for its cavalry. Has a large, imposing frame and a brilliant mind as well. Wields a giant axe. Often starts large and unnecessary brawls with Yukimura, sometimes for no reason, usually by wrestling or exchanging names while punching each other at the face. He is critically ill in Sengoku BASARA 3. But in Sengoku BASARA 3 Utage, he has been healed for his illness immediately, thus being a playable character in the game.

SkillsEdit

Weapons Edit

  • Stonecutter - A giant axe that has poor power and defense.
  • Dark Manta - This great axe is slightly more powerful than Stonecutter.
  • Funeral Pyre - This giant axe is empowered by fire. It has high attack power and low defense. It also adds bonus fire damage to every hit.
  • Razorwheel - This spinning axe has poor attack but very high defense. It has a special prime advantage, adding a bonus hit to every blow struck against a "primed" enemy.
  • Immortal Halberd - This has the same properties as Funeral Pyre, but with a vastly higher attack and better defense.
  • Crowd Fan - This massive fan is more functional than it first appears. It has the highest attack of any axe and even has a respectable defense.

Historical informationEdit

Takeda Shingen 

武田信玄 December 1, 1521 – May 13, 1573

was the most famous leader of the Takeda clan and one of the most famous leaders in the Sengoku Period. Even though the young Shingen was gifted, his relation with his father was so poor that his father considered making Shingen's younger brother his heir instead of Takeda Shingen himself.

When he heard of this, Shingen led a rebellion against his father and took control of the clan. His younger brother did not resent Shingen for it and became one of his most loyal generals.

After leading his clan for years he attacked an ally of the Uesugi Clan which forced Uesugi Kenshin to fight him and thus a rivalry was born.

Takeda Shingen and Uesugi Kenshin fought many battles with each other. The fourth one was the bloodiest and both Takeda and Kenshin suffered heavy casualties; Takeda even lost his younger brother.

Despite their rivalry the two warlords had nothing but respect for each other and would often send each other gifts. When the surrounding lords refused to trade with Takeda because they feared him Kenshin secretly smuggled food to him and advised him to attack his neighbors because their actions were an act of war. Takeda on the other hand gave Kenshin his sword which was one of his dearest possessions.

When Oda rose to power Takeda was one of the few warlords powerful enough to stop him but after some victories against Oda and Ieyasu he died of sickness (others say it was an old war wound) in his camp.

The Takeda clan was then led by his less talented son who would later be defeated by Oda.
