The result was a franchise that [[RefugeInAudacity abandoned such things as logic, physics, and historical accuracy]], and instead ran entirely on RuleOfCool, a WorldOfBadass chock-full of {{Flanderization}}, for better or worse. Despite a failed attempt by Capcom to bring the first game to the west by giving it a CutAndPasteTranslation treatment in the form of ''Devil Kings'', which changed the characters' names and removed all Sengoku Period references (leaving Capcom reluctant to localise the sequels), the series maintains a strong fanbase, especially in Japan, mainly because, if nothing else, [[RuleOfFun it's just fun]].

Not to be confused with the RealTimeStrategy game ''VideoGame/{{Sengoku}}'', or the shoujo manga ''Manga/{{Basara}}''.

* PopularityPower: The series breathes in this. Popularity means more screentime, more merchandise, and more development. It explains Mitsunari's BreakoutCharacter status to the point that he took over Yukimura as Masamune's main rival (after beating Yukimura out as second most popular character by only 50 votes), or the promotion of some NPC into playable characters and personal scenarios (Motochika and Motonari in ''2'', Kojuro, Oichi, Nagamasa and Kotaro in ''2 Heroes''). Tellingly, those who have little popularity (e.g: Nouhime, Ranmaru, Yoshimoto, Kennyo, Xavi, many Area Warlords, etc) tends to either get replaced with another character with similar theme (Magoichi for Nouhime, Tsuruhime for Ranmaru, for example) or demoted into unplayability to the point of obscurity or removed from the game, or becoming nothing more than glorified cannon fodder.

In the wake of the anime's success, Capcom announced that ''Sengoku Basara'' would be brought to the US and Europe once more, starting with the third game, translated faithfully, and titled ''Sengoku Basara: Samurai Heroes''. In August 2012 the first two games and expansion were collected in an UpdatedRerelease for the {{PS3}}.

* KilledOffForReal: Since ''3'' is much more true to history than the other games, characters like Yoshimoto, Nagamasa, Nohime, Ranmaru, Hanbe and Hideyoshi were cut for the sake of plot. Nobunaga still made it back though, LikeABadassOutOfHell.
** Hideyoshi, Hanbe and Nagamasa return in ''4'' due to the game being a ContinuityReboot. Nohime and Ranmaru's fates are revealed in Tenkai's drama route, in which they were captured by Mitsuhide's forces and the two appear in a flashback in Katsuie's anime ending.
