* CharacterDevelopment: In the start of the series he was aloof, uncaring, aggressive, and hated the thought of working under a lord/being a Sanada's Brave, although a lot of this was based in a cynical attempt at self-protection. By the end, while not necessarily nice, he's far more gentle and calm, and openly admits to liking being a Brave. Kakei even [[LampshadeHanging lampshades it]] when they were drinking in Jinpachi's ship, noting that he has become more gentle.

He then plays it off as bumbling accident, though Tokugawa got the message loud and clear.

* BrilliantButLazy: He gets the Braves to do all the heavy lifting for him in private and public matters, but his brilliance is unquestionable.
* CoatCape: Yukimura tends to wear his cloak in this way. It goes with his cool but elusive personality and Zhuge Lang-like strategems.



* EvenTheGuysWantHim: He manages to draw in the largely male RagtagBunchOfMisfits that is the Braves with no promises of money or land or tangible gain, just the charm that comes with his mysterious and hard-to-read nature.

Even Jinpachi, who hates being chained to anything, talks about how compelling he is because he is so hard-to-read.
* FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling: He is the foolish sibling to Nobuyuki's responsible one, although he takes his responsibility to Ueda quite seriously.
* GeniusSlob: Rokuro's constantly on his case for dressing slovenly, not brushing his hair,
and hard-to-read nature.generally not conducting himself as a samurai ought to.



* HandsomeLech: He's always flirting with Ana and sneaking out to brothels and talking about how much he likes women, but he's not very successful as all of his efforts are foiled by Rokuro's interference.



* MessyHair: His is naturally wild. One {{Doujinshi}} by the author features Rokuro struggling to comb his hair out for the matches at the same time Komatsu does their brothers' hair, with the latter group snarking about Yukimura's untameable locks.
* MysteriousEmployer: Nearly all the Braves will cop to not knowing what goes on in his head, and he's very good at recruiting people without promising them anything in return, and he gets the Braves to move for him in matters where he needs to sit back.




to:

* SmartPeoplePlayChess: Rokuro challenges him to a game of shogi, trying to make a point. While that game ends rather abruptly with Yukimura shaking the gameboard and dislodging the pieces to make a counterpoint, Yukimura continues to use shogi metaphors to describe his plans for Ueda and the Braves, showing off his cleverness.
* TheStrategist: He's always considering the long-term future of Ueda and trying to manipulate things to ensure its peace and safety.
* WarriorPoet: Of all the samurai lords in the story, he has the biggest philosophical streak and spends a lot of his non-ObfuscatingStupidity time ruminating on war, power, morality and fate.



--> '''Pirate''': Here, why not have some more, [[{{bishonen}} beauty]]!?
--> '''Rokuro''': ''Why am I the only one with a bowl?''...Thanks...
--> '''Saizo''': (looks on) ''Rokuro sure is popular...''
* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: He gets this the most often out of the cast. Kamanosuke calls him "page", Hanzo calls him "the handsome page", the farmer in Kudoyama calls him "the beautiful lad" and the pirates just call him "beauty." It seems to come down to [[BattleButler one]] of [[{{Bishonen}} two]] factors.



* IngestingKnowledge: He can store information and memories by sucking them into his magic eye.



* {{Tsundere}}: It runs in the family. He's sharp-tongued and quick-tempered, but occasionally Yukimura catches him offguard with unexpected praise, which gives rise to brief moments of deredere.



* CrazyJealousGuy: He is extremely possessive over Saizo and picks fights with Isanami over their respective closeness to him.



* NoShirtLongJacket: His muscles are on constant display with this look.



* LargeHam: He's always spoiling for war, attempting to run away to be at the centre of action himself and is generally larger than life.




!!UsefulNotes/IshikawaGoemon
[[quoteright:200:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/goe1.jpg]]

* AlasPoorVillain: He's one of the more sympathetic Villains of the Week despite being just as amoral as the rest, perhaps because of the atmosphere of ''mono no aware'' that he invokes.
* BareYourMidriff: His outfit is a tube top + long loincloth.
* DisguisedInDrag: Because he would have been killed if it were found out any Goemon ''sons'' were living, he starts living as a woman to deter rumours.
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: He's an unrepetent thief and murderer who does enjoy the thrill and glory of it, but also acts heavily out of love for Kojuro, who gave him shelter when he was being hunted and then a purpose for living.
* FlowerMotifs: Camellias are his. He was discovered hiding among the camellias by Kojuro and has loved them ever since. They are a flower that falls "purely", dropping all at once rather than petal by petal. It's both a metaphor for his swift fall for Kojuro, and his dying young and beautiful as he falls from the rooftop after battling Saizo.
* QuirkyMinibossSquad: He heads one as the ''ane'' of the Ishikawa gang.
* UndyingLoyalty: He lives only to be of use to Kojuro.
* UnsettlingGenderReveal: Saizo was surprised to learn he really was a man in the aftermath of the attack, as he dresses as a woman and refers to himself as one to conceal himself better after his father's execution.



[[quoteright:200:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mitsunari.jpg]]



* TheFettered: He is this regarding honouring Toyotomi Hideyoshi and preventing the collapse of the nobility.



[[quoteright:200:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kanetsugu.jpg]]

* SmugSnake: Disdainful with a smile.




to:

[[quoteright:200:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/nobu3.png]]



* FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling: He's the responsible sibling to Yukimura's foolish one, although he doesn't give his brother enough credit.
* MessyHair: He has the same messy hair that Yukimura does although he maintains it better. Komatsu claims there's a satisfaction in being able to comb it down.
* NoIndoorVoice: He has a tendency to shout most of his dialogue.




to:

[[quoteright:200:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/nana2_7.jpg]]



* ScarsAreForever: He gets a long, deep slash from his sternum to his stomach from Fuuma, and forgoes [[BareYourMidriff baring his midriff]] from then on, covering up with a long black shirt underneath his usual clothes.




to:

[[quoteright:200:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/koma2.jpg]]

* GirlyGirlWithATomboyStreak: Her design is very girl-ish and she puts a lot of stock in propriety, but she's hot-tempered and arrogant like the rest of her family, and good with a spear.

->Voiced by: Creator/ToshiyukiMorikawa

* {{Bishonen}}: More like biseinen but still.
* CoolOldGuy
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Strongly implied. He never really fights in the series, and the closest to one is when Masamune forces him to duel. Masamune is using a real katana, while the only "weapon" he has is his fan. Still, he holds his own quite easily, even blocking one strike with his sandals, but decides to throw the fight soon after, laughing all the way.
* DirtyOldMan: Combined with LovableSexManiac.
* GuileHero
* ObfuscatingStupidity: It's clear that he knows more than he lets on, that he's more powerful than it seems, and his cheerful persona is just a masquerade. Saizo openly criticizes him for it, but he just laughs it off. He's basically the [[Manga/{{Bleach}} Kisuke Urahara]] of the series.

* JerkWithAHeartOfGoldJerkWithAHeartOfGold: He's only really a jerk to Saizo and occasionally Ana thanks to the Iga-Koga ninja rivalry. When he gets around animals or innocent people like Isanami, his heart's all gold.
* NatureHero: Was abandoned in a forest and lived there until Yukimura recruited him. Still spends most of his time there.
* NiceGuy: Despite being a ninja who will kill at the drop of a hat to protect Ueda, Sasuke has a stronger sweet side than the others, something which draws criticism from opponents as [[spoiler:Anastasia explicitly states he is inexperienced and naive, while Okatsu derides him for only being a boy, and his hesitation almost gets him killed when he gets [[KissOfDeath kissed]] by Kaio]]. He's also has a few moments of TenderTears and is very gentle and caring towards his animal friends.

->Voiced by: Creator/ToshiyukiMorikawa

* CombatHandFan: When challenged to a sword dance, he opts to use his fan instead.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: He cultivates this image carefully. He never really fights in the series, but when Masamune forces him to duel for a "show", Masamune uses a real katana while the only "weapon" Yukimura takes is his fan. He holds his own quite easily, even blocking one strike with his sandals, but plays up his clumsiness until the point Date tries to land a blow and he catches the carpet with his foot, falls flat on his back and uses the other to kick the sword of Date's hand and send it flying within a hair's breadth of Tokugawa. He then plays it off as bumbling accident, though Tokugawa got the message loud and clear.
* DirtyOldMan: Combined with LovableSexManiac.
* EvenTheGuysWantHim: He manages to draw in the largely male RagtagBunchOfMisfits that is the Braves with no promises of money or land or tangible gain, just the charm that comes with his mysterious and hard-to-read nature.
* GuileHero: He's intelligent and is very good at taking the bigger picture, and using that knowledge to manipulate people into doing what he wants.
* LikeAnOldMarriedCouple: Rokuro has been serving as Yukimura's page since they were 10 and 16 respectively, and by the time the series starts they have full on settled into the nagging wife/lazy husband dynamic, to the point in the sequel Rokuro's dressed like a housewife and beating him with a broom while they argue in front of the kid.

* AloofBigBrother: Towards his twin, Nanakuma, as Rokuro is far less emotional than him. He doesn't hate Nanakuma like Nanakuma hates him but in reality Rokuro's cold stoicism only contributes to Nanakuma's insecurities and anger.
* BareYourMidriff: He wears a short shirt with a pair of low slung hakama.
* BattleButler: He is a page rather than a butler, but fits this trope quite nicely.
* {{Bishonen}}: Extremely so, and noted in-universe.
* CainAndAbel: He and his twin, Nanakuma, although this mostly comes from Nanakuma's side, with Rokuro being an AloofBigBrother while Nanakuma knows he's TheUnfavorite.
* {{Determinator}}: He will not stay down when it comes time to protect his master and his kin, even if he has to start [[CastFromHitPoints casting from HP]].
* EvenTheGuysWantHim: It is made clear many times that men and women alike find him extremely attractive. Jinpachi's crew of pirates make it quite obvious that they would like him to get black out drunk.
* EyepatchOfPower: His eyepatch covers up [[spoiler:the Water Crest eye, which records information and can extract memories. When it's stabbed out, he replaces it with the [[PowerCrystal God's Jewel]], another Unno inheritable, which can control water including people's [[BloodMagic blood]].]]
* EyeScream: He pierces his eye with [[spoiler: Anastasia]]'s blade when [[spoiler: she]] was trying to steal his eye, which contains valuable information.
* LikeAnOldMarriedCouple: He is the nagging wife to Yukimura's lazy lech of a husband. As he tells Saizo, being a faithful retainer does not mean not telling your lord when you disagree with him or his ways.
* MakingASplash: He is the Brave that controls water. However, his use of it is quite uncommon, as he mixes water with [[MakeMeWannaShout shouts]] to create waves that incapacitate his enemies.
* NiceGuy: He can be irritable and snappish, but his heart's in a good place which sets him up for the TeamMom role.
** BewareTheNiceOnes: Nearly all of the Braves have learned this the hard way.
* OnlySaneMan: Shares this position with Saizo, possibly even more so. It comes with being the only Type A personality on the entire team.
* RavenHairIvorySkin: The dark hair/pale skin look goes along with his general bishonen features.
* SenselessSacrifice: In the anime he tries to do one to [[spoiler: slow down Isanami]]. Saizo stops him,though.
* TheStoic: He tends to show little expression and goes around getting things done quietly
** NotSoStoic: He smiles quite a few times in the series, and around Yukimura he's far more animated and snappish.
* {{Stripperiffic}}: Hakama naturally have large gaps at the sides, which is why a long kimono is traditionally worn with them. Rokuro forgoes tradition and wears a crop top instead, resulting in an adventurous outfit for an experienced fighter to wear.
* TeamMom: He ends up falling into this position, keeping everyone in tea and in line (often forcefully), but always remaining [[OnlySaneMan rational]] and occasionally offering a pep talk to those who need them in his own way.
* TooMuchAlike: He and Nanakuma are {{tsundere}} twins with UndyingLoyalty, but that causes far more conflict between them.
* UndyingLoyalty: To Yukimura. [[spoiler: Enough to sacrifice his eye so that the bad guys could not get the info contained on it.]] He eventually gets in a loyalty-off with his twin brother when a show match turns into a DuelToTheDeath to prove each serves his own master better.
* WhipItGood: It turns out the chain on his jacket is actually part of a chain whip that he can assembling into a longer whip when he faces off against his brother.

* HoistByHisOwnPetard / EvilIsNotAToy: Killed In the anime he is killed by the monster he himself released.

Basically,the Basically, the only reason he's not a GodModeSue / VillainSue GodModeSue[=/=]VillainSue is that he was beaten one time, and because [[spoiler: he [[spoiler:he died because of his own dumbness]].
stupidity in the anime. In the manga, well...]].
* ManipulativeBastardManipulativeBastard: He's cunning and manipulates his oppnonents and teammates emotions alike to acheive his desired ends.
* NotTooDeadToSaveTheDay: [[spoiler:In the manga, he's still alive. Ana froze him in ice, but as soon as she left he got himself out using his hellfire technique. Everyone's pretty shocked when he suddenly shows up and saves Benmaru from kidnappers.]]
* PunchClockVillain: He doesn't hate the Braves or carry grudges. He's a ninja who does a job without personal investments, or so he claims.

!!UsefulNotes/DateMasamune
[[quoteright:200:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/masamune_date.jpg]]
->Voiced by: Creator/TakehitoKoyasu

* {{BFS}}: He carries a massive one.
* BloodKnight: His main priorities are war, chaos and more war. He feels he was born for a more tumultuous time than the one he's in.
* TheDragon: He is this to Ieyasu because he thinks Ieyasu might get him the war he so badly wants.
* EyepatchOfPower: Naturally he has one as the One-eyed Dragon of Oshu.
* RummageSaleReject: His Kyoto outfit is a fearsome thing to behold.

[[folder: Other Historical Figures]]


Added DiffLines:

* DoomedByCanon: As soon as the Battle of Sekigahara started looming, his fate was obviously sealed.
* ThoseTwoGuys: He and Kanetsugu are introduced gossiping together and make all of their appearances together after that [[spoiler:until his beheading]].


Added DiffLines:


* GentlemanSnarker: Kanetsugu is extremely sharp-tongued toward everyone equally, offering backhanded compliments and politely-veiled insults indiscriminately.
* PassiveAggressiveKombat: His forte, being quick-witted and vaguely disdainful towards everyone.
* ThoseTwoGuys: He appears with Mitsunari in Kyoto and they are always seen together after that [[spoiler:until Mitsunari's death, at which point Kanetsugu makes his exit from the story.]]

!!Sanada Nobuyuki

* AloofBigBrother: He has elements of this towards Yukimura, being proud and disapproving.
* {{BFS}}: His odachi is massive.
* TheBigGuy: He breaks floorboards as he walks when he's in a rage.
* PerpetualFrowner: He never looks happy.
* {{Tsundere}}: Like his wife and page, he has a tendency towards arrogance and disdain, but deep down he really cares about his brother and the fortunes of their family, he just expresses it in unusual ways.

!!Unno Nanakuma[[labelnote:*]]Not really a historical figure, but he belongs with Nobuyuki and Komatsu[[/labelnote]]

* BareYourMidriff: Shares his twin's dress sense, although he forgoes a shirt altogether and just wears a lace up jacket with the hakama.
* BattleButler: A page to Nobuyuki, and his third fighter in the tournament arc.
* {{Bishonen}}: He is identical to his brother in this matter.
* CainAndAbel: Nanakuma knows he's TheUnfavorite and that his parents only didn't kill him at birth because they weren't sure which twin would inherit the Water Crest eye. When it, and the God's Jewel, goes to Rokuro, he feels inferior, reinforced when Nobuyuki is unhappy to see the "superior" Rokuro choose to serve his brother instead. He's quite eager to prove himself as a [[UndyingLoyalty worthy page]], and is ready to kill Rokuro in a DuelToTheDeath in the tournament arc and take the God's Jewel for his own. The author notes Nanakuma has a major complex over his brother even though Rokuro [[AloofBigBrother doesn't really reciprocate or care]].
* MakingASplash: He has the same sonic techniques that his twin does.
* SourOutsideSadInside: The mangaka outright calls him tsuntsun in her {{doujinshi}}. He's arrogant and proud, but also very insecure and desparate to prove himself.
* {{Stripperiffic}}: The same kimono-less hakama effect that applies to Rokuro applies here.
* TooMuchAlike: He and Rokuro are both {{tsundere}} twins with UndyingLoyalty, but that makes their relationship worse, not better.
* UndyingLoyalty: To Nobuyuki. He gets in a loyalty-off with Rokuro when a show match turns into a DuelToTheDeath to prove each serves his own master better.
* WhipItGood: It turns out the lace up ribbon on his jacket is actually a rope dart he can use as a weapon when he faces off against his brother.

!!Sanada Komatsu[[labelnote:*]]Sometimes known as Inahime or Komatsuhime[[/labelnote]]

* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: She dishes a lot of shade at Ana and is every bit as arrogant as Nobuyuki and Nanakuma, but when Nanakuma is sliced open by Fuuma, she's greatly distressed and overcomes her disdain to ask Ana to take good care of him, and later begs her father [[spoiler:to spare Yukimura's life, as he's her brother-in-law, however poorly they get along.]]
* LadyOfWar: This is how she sees herself. Proper, graceful, and the best with a naginata. Her enthusiasm tips her closer towards GirlyBruiser at points, however.
* NaginatasAreFeminine: She is a master with the spear.
* PintsizedPowerhouse: She is ''tiny'' but a great fighter.

* SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: Manly man to Sasuke's sensitive guy. Fits the trope of ArealManIsAKiller quite well when Yuri realizes he's killed so many people, he also doesn't show much reluctance when doing so. He's got more than one just one RuggedScar throughout his body. He's 19 but WiseBeyondTheirYears with enough life experience [[spoiler: to become the leader of the braves at the end of the Anime]]. He also doesn't cry [[spoiler: when Anastasia betrays them in the ninth episode.]]

* SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: Sensitive guy to Saizo's manly man. In comparison to Saizo's ArealManIsAKiller Anastasia comments that he hesitated when fighting in episode 9 and it almost gets him killed in episode 10 after getting kissed. His body in the HotSpringsEpisode is smooth and free of scars, in contrast to Saizo's more rugged look. His voice is positioned in the TenorBoy range. Anastasia explicitly stated he was inexperienced and naive in episode 9, while his opponent in episode 2 Okatsu said he is a boy. Saizo is never considered as such and is instead regarded as a man. He's also sensitive enough to cry when the mole is revealed and is very gentle and caring towards his animal friends.
