A list of characters from Creator/{{Koei}}'s ''VideoGame/BladestormTheHundredYearsWar'', and the tropes they embody. The game is loosely based on The Hundred Years' War between the Kingdoms of England and France in the 14th and 15th century, and so includes a variety of real-life historical figures (albeit in often [[AnachronismStew anachronistic order]]),
as well as fictional supporting characters.

Note: The tropes presented here primarily relate to the historical character's in-game personifications.


Tropes common to the England team on the whole include:
* ColorCodedArmies: England's team colour is predominantly red, taken from the red ''St George's Cross'' on the national flag.
