Of course, considering this is Samurai Warriors, don't expect historical accuracy either. Also note that despite the dub team [[NameOrderConfusion reversing their names]], they are still pre-Meiji figures, and thus their names listed here with the original surname-name order.

* [[spoiler:{{Shinigami}}: Her ''3:XL'' story suggests that she is one, as she "collects" the souls of people who died historically, including Yukimura, Katsuie and Oichi, and vanishes with them once they reach Izumo. Her Chronicle Mode scenes in ''4'' have her exhibiting several paranormal abilities, and the final one outright confirms it.]]

* NotAllowedtoGrowUp: Despite being a fictional character, she never ages in ''Spirit of Sanada'' which makes it weird to see her and the kid versions of Yukimura and Nobuyuki together in one scene. Though in the anime, she does have a childhood version of herself in the flashback.



*** WillTheyOrWontThey: And from there, Kunoichi is very reluctant to openly confess some form of her feelings towards him, and normally keeps quiet to make him happy from the sidelines (it shows in her opening cutscene in the third game's version of Osaka). Even Kai tries to push her into doing it with medium-to-no avail. In ''Spirit of Sanada'', Yukimura outright says that she's like a family, and... well, "family" doesn't exactly mean "lover", by any means.

In ''Spirit of Sanada'', Yukimura outright says that she's like family, and considering that she's with him and Nobuyuki when they were kids back then, it would probably be awkward.

Nobunaga..



** Unfortunately, this also omits the more-believable reason why many Toyotomi retainers defect or surrender to Tokugawa during and after Sekigahara, to the point that Hideyori ''barely'' gets any supporters in theOsaka Campaign. Historically, Hideyoshi isn't really a benevolent boss like he is in the game, which is why many of his retainers eventually got fed up with him and seek the Tokugawa's servitude almost as soon as Hideyoshi died, and didn't reconsider to protect Hideyori in the Osaka Campaign (although Kiyomasa's UndyingLoyalty to Hideyori might be an exception here).

* HumiliationConga: As a result, thought it also depends on whether you choose to fight or simply ignore him to go straight to enemy commander and end the stage. That said, it's more than likely you will have to defeat him every time he appears as he's quite active in the battlefield sooner or later, so you will encounter him regardless you like it or not. So his repeated defeat by your character will result in this trope.

naginata. But this was changed into a katana

* AdaptedOut: Despite being one of the most important figures in the Osaka campaign, he never made an appearance in ''Spirit in Sanada'' because the the spinoff never made his mother, Chacha, as one of Hideyoshi's concubines. Strangely enough, he only gets one mention by Hidetada in the epilogue.



* TheUnfavorite: After he becomes political hostage to Uesugi, he thinks he is this in the Houjou, leading him to...

** In ''Spirit of Sanada'', Kai is exasperated when she believed that Chacha might have feelings for Yukimura, but he doesn't seem to notice.

* LadyAndKnight: Nagamasa ''is'' specifically designed to be a KnightInShiningArmor, so it's a given that he's the Knight while Oichi is the Lady.



* HopelessSuitor: If you consider Chacha and Yukimura are [[ShipTease more]] than just a pair of LadyAndKnight, then Kunoichi is this to Yukimura, since he never looked at her the same way he looked at Chacha. Also, Yukimura outright says that Kunoichi is more like a family to him than a potential love interest.

Added DiffLines:

* DyingAsYourself: In ''4'', his [[FamousLastWords death quote]] is said in the same "demonic" voice he used in his cutscene with Ieyasu, implying this really ''is'' Yoshimoto's real self rather than the goofy kemari-loving one.

** In ''Warriors Orochi 3'' as his Type Action however, he adds a [[EverythingsBetterWithSpinning spinning getup kemari kick]] that creates a [[BlowYouAway tornado]] (and also makes him completely invincible as well).

* DifficultButAwesome: He might have a strange attack style since he uses a katakana and [[IKnowMaddenKombat a kemari]] in combat, but if you've learned to play him, he can take out a group of mooks very easily with his Musuo attack.

* EvilUncle: Played for comedy to Hojou Ujimasa ([[EtTuBrute who calls him out on it]]) in ''[=2:XL=]'' when Yoshimoto helps Toyotomi attacking Odawara.

to:

* EverythingsBetterWithSpinning: A lot of his attacks involve either twirling his ball, or some form of spinning motion.
* EvilUncle: Played for comedy to Hojou Houjou Ujimasa ([[EtTuBrute who calls him out on it]]) in ''[=2:XL=]'' when Yoshimoto helps Toyotomi attacking Odawara.



* KickedUpstairs: In his story mode in the latest game, Masamune encourage him to spread his Kemari-Mania to the world... so Yoshimoto departs via ship, leaving Japan to the other warlords.
* LethalJokeCharacter: He might seem like a JokeCharacter at first, and against officers, this might seem true. But when he's up against a large number of {{Mooks}}, he can be a force to be reckoned with. His Musuo attack is perfect for [[HerdHittingAttack taking out large numbers of enemies]] and even if his normal attack isn't anything to write home about, he can still hold his own against an officer if you know how to play him.
* LighterAndSofter: EveryoneLives (well, almost everyone, at least) in his ending for ''[=2:XL=]'', and they ''[[ThrowTheDogABone finally]]'' agree to play kemari with him. This includes the likes of Hojou Ujimasa (survives his defeat at Odawara) and Mitsunari (survives his defeat at Sekigahara).

* PlayingPossum: One of his iconic special skills since the second installment, where he plays dead to avoid anything that doesn't hit OTG. Makes him a pretty deadly character if combined with his Level 3 Musou (since he can cause the fireworks during it to extend for as long as he stays down). He instead regains some [[HealingFactor HP and/or Musou]] back instead as of the third title.
** In ''Warriors Orochi 3'' as his Type Action however, he adds a [[EverythingsBetterWithSpinning spinning getup kemari kick]] that creates a [[BlowYouAway tornado]] (and also makes him completely invincible as well).
