''Onimusha 2: Samurai's Destiny'' (released in 2002) has fewer survival horror elements than the original and leans more toward pure action-adventure. Nobunaga is solidifying his hold on Japan at the head of a Genma army, making rapid and cruel conquests. One of these conquests is [[DoomedHometown Yagyu village]], which causes YagyuJubei, (not the historical Jubei but his grandfather; in the game, the name Jubei is a title given to the head of the Yagyu clan) the half-oni head of the Yagyu clan and a renowned swordsman, to swear vengeance on Nobunaga. This game also features a supporting cast of four characters, each an outstanding warrior in his or her own way (or at least important to the plot) who, depending on the relationships Jubei forges with them, may be important in aiding him in his quest, or have the potential to be an enemy. Despite seemingly being bested by Jubei, Nobunaga swears to return and continue to wreak havoc.

* YagyuJubei: Zigzagged, he's in the second game as the main hero (Who's actually the classical Jubei's grandfather, Sekishusai). In the fourth game is established that the title Jubei is given to the strongest swordman of the Yagyu clan.

Three spin-off ''Onimusha'' titles exist: ''Onimusha Tactics'', a spinoff for the GameBoyAdvance - a turn-based strategy game featuring a new oni warrior named Onimaru, with returning characters Ekei, Magoichi and Kotaro from the second game; ''Onimusha Blade Warriors'', a [[AlternateContinuity non-canonical]] fighting game in the style of ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' for the UsefulNotes/PlayStation2, which features characters from the first two games (as well as [[EarlyBirdCameo Gargant]], who first appears in the third game, and GuestFighter[=s=] [[VideoGame/MegaManBattleNetwork MegaMan.EXE]] and [[VideoGame/MegaManZero Zero]]); and ''Onimusha Soul'', a browser-based simulation RPG taking place during the Warring States era, and featuring cameos from many other Capcom characters redesigned to fit the theme. The original ''Onimusha'' was also ported to the Xbox under the title of ''Genma Onimusha''.

* MagikarpPower: Akane's sword Onimaru in ''Dawn of Dreams'' is probably the best example.example. The blade begins with a pathetic 15 attack power, making it one of the weakest blades there is. Upgrading it through all 10 level upgrades, however, will grant several enormous bonuses to the blade's abilities, as at Level 8 the attack power is boosted by 100, (which alone would put it in a very high tier as far as her weapons go) and on top of that Level 9 adds an additional 40% onto any normal attack performed with it, and Level 10 allows attacks with the blade to create a "attack wave" (essentially a RazorWind) that flies out from the blade and strikes distant enemies. And since the blade can be dropped by the ninja genma encountered in the third stage, (or on the early floors of the Dark Realm) it also doubles as a DiscOneNuke as long as you're willing/able to grind for the souls to upgrade it. Not until about 3/4 of the way through the game will Akane start getting more useful weapons.

''Onimusha: Warlords'' (released in 2000 as one of the [=PS2=]'s launch titles) sees protagonist Samanosuke racing to attempt to rescue a princess of the Saito clan, who has written to him of strange disappearances and events around their castle, and how she suspects demonic involvement. When he arrives, the castle is already under mass attack from demons and the princess has been kidnapped to be sacrificed as part of the ritual for resurrecting Nobunaga. Initially at a severe disadvantage against the demons, Samanosuke receives a power up from the Oni, a clan of demons that were once rivals to the Genma, but which has been virtually destroyed by the Genma. This allows him the use of a supernatural gauntlet which sucks the souls out of defeated Genma and uses their power to aid him. He eventually confronts and kills the Genma king, Fortinbras; The epilogue, however, reveals that [[SequelHook Nobunaga managed to come back to life anyway]], and conquers the Saito clan territory while Samanosuke vanishes and is presumed dead.
