'''''Onimusha 3: Demon Siege''''' (2004) returns to having Samanosuke as the protagonist. In 1582 he leads an attack on Nobunaga's stronghold and intends to slay Nobunaga himself, but before he can deal the final blow, the Genma open a portal that, ala SamuraiJack, sends Samanosuke into the future. In France circa 2004, French [=DGSE=] agent Jacques Blanc is attempting to aid the French military in holding back the Genma hordes. When Samanosuke arrives on the scene, the time portal reopens, and Jaqcues is sent back to about a week before Samanosuke left. The player switches back and forth between the two characters and eras, each attempting to defeat the Genma. At the end Samanosuke defeats Nobunaga and absorbs his soul into the Oni gauntlet, preventing him from returning again.

'''''Onimusha''''' ("ogre warrior") is a series of action-adventure games by Capcom [[JidaiGeki set in feudal Japan]] released primarily for the {{PlayStation 2}}. The story begins with infamous real life Japanese warlord OdaNobunaga being felled by an arrow in the midst of his greatest triumph. However, Nobunaga's skill and brutality had already caught the eyes of the king of the Genma, (various types of demons that feast on humans) Fortinbras, who offers a deal to Nobunaga: he can come back to life if he agrees to conquer Japan on behalf of the Genma demon clan and turn it into, in effect, a massive feeding ground. Nobunaga accepts, and events get off and running.

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 ''SuperSmashBros'' for the [[PlaystationTwo Playstation 2]], which features characters from the first two games (as well as Gargant, who first appears in the third game); and ''Onimusha Soul'', a browser-based simulation RPG taking place during the Warring States era. The original ''Onimusha'' was also ported to the Xbox under the title of '''''Genma Onimusha'''''.

* HellHasNewManagement: After Fortinbras gets taken out, Nobunaga takes over hell and becomes the new demon king.

Added DiffLines:

* DemonOfHumanOrigin: The first three games of the series deal with the aftermath of demons taking the soul of Japanese warlord UsefulNotes/OdaNobunaga and striking a deal with him to become a demon and give demons sway over Japan. After [[DemonLord the king of the demons]] is killed at the end of the first game, Nobunaga becomes the new demon king ([[DemonKingNobunaga it happens more often than you'd think]]) and begins to lead them in conquering Japan, with the eventual goal to TakeOverTheWorld.

* ZeroPercentApprovalRating

to:

* ZeroPercentApprovalRatingZeroPercentApprovalRating: The Genma and any lord who decides to side with then for power.



* AnachronismStew

to:

* AnachronismStewAnachronismStew: Though is often highly implied that some machinery came from both the Oni and the Genma.



** Then again, the word "Tenka" can mean World but is often used to refer to Japan, making it a translation error.



** ''Soul'' has a whole list of various daimyos who get this by siding with the Genma.



* InfinityMinusOneSword: In ''Shin Onimusha'' this is what you get from the 50th level of the Dark Realm: Said weapons do have elemental magic and are usually more powerful than the late level weapons you can buy from the shop in the final act like Anguish or Fudo. Soki also has Balmunk, the Dark-Elemental sword which, alas, can only be obtained as a rare drop from the deadly (and rare) Black Genma Generals.



** In the fourth game, this is your reward for finishing the Dark Realm: they're the most powerful of the group and give nice bonuses to stats, but are non-elemental, meaning that you're unable to use Oni Magic.



* LightIsNotGood: Fortinbras, as the BigBad of ''Dawn Of Dreams'', where he is explicitly referred to as the God of Light. In the first game, he was your standard dark demon overlord.

Also worth noticing that noone of the five heroes start with a light-aligned weapon... whose magic is still effective against certain Bosses (Like Claudius).



* YagyuJubei

to:

* YagyuJubeiYagyuJubei: 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.

* JigglePhysics: Very noticeable on Kaede in the first game. Her breasts bounce every time she so much as turns around.

* ArtisticLicenseHistory: The narration in the first game says that Tokichiro will eventually go on to conquer the entire world under a different name. Uh...sure, if by the world you mean the majority of Japan.

In the fourth and final installment, '''''Shin Onimusha: Dawn of Dreams''''' (2006), Nobunaga's chief general, Toyotomi Hideyoshi, has replaced his master and finished conquering Japan as Nobunaga dreamed. With a unified Japan behind him he begins a war of conquest on the mainland, but his inability to score a decisive victory makes him turn to the Genma for help. Hideyoshi will supposedly receive the power of a god from the Genma, the Genma run rampant in the land, and perhaps worst of all, Hideyoshi is turning his own soldiers into battle crazed, bloodthirsty human-Genma hybrids. And the Genma have their own agenda and a devious plan to bring it to fruition... however, Hideyoshi's adopted son, known as Soki, and a band of powerful warriors take up arms to defeat him. Dawn of Dreams expanded the RPG elements and gameplay depth, moving away from the "tank controls" the previous games had used to something more manageable, while removing many of the annoying puzzles to make a more satisfying experience.

* ZombiePukeAttack: The Lost Souls (read: Zombies of what appears to be former christian monks) from ''Onimusha: Dawn of Dreams'' can sometimes puke orangeish slime as a form of attack. If memory serves me well, you can also get damaged by stepping on it.
