When City of Flowers plays, you can hardly take the mission seriously. Often involves Okuni and something foolish, like a "tournament" to decide who is the most beautiful woman or extortion of strong warriors to gain some money for her shrine.
Anytime Ranmaru is confused with a girl. Including the beauty tournaments.
On that note, the intro to SW4's beauty contest stage, the DLC map "Sinister Beauties", which in this case is being organized by Koshosho:
Koshosho: I've got the funds for it. Lots of people are willing to pay for this! But we need someone to actually run the event.
Ranmaru: What? That's what you want me to do? N-No, thank you!
Koshosho: I see. That's a shame. I was going to let you off the hook from taking part, if you took an official role.
Some of Okuni's quotes to certain characters. And also exchange of dialogue between Okuni and various characters.
Nene's Dream, Melee at Sekigahara. She goes out to spank EVERY SINGLE OFFICER in the Battle of Sekigahara, and is likely the ONLY Dream Stage with an ending, that shows her lecturing officers that are now grounded. Bad children deserves punishment, and mommy Nene won't go easy on them. Even Ieyasu admitted, after Nene defeated him, that "he's never been scolded like this in his entire life".
Gameplay and Story Segregation: In Mitsunari's SW2's story mode, he already has a rivalry with Kiyomasa and Masanori (both are still generic NPCs) who greatly disliked him. However, every time you (as Mitsunari) defeat an enemy officer, they still praise you (Mitsunari) with generic quotes. This is strangely funny, despite justified with the fact those two are still generics.
Generic!Masanori: It seems you've got a bit of devil in you!
Generic!Kiyomasa: An exemplary warrior!
There is one scene in SW2:Empires, in which Nagamasa Azai mistook Kotaro Fuma, of all people, as "a dead woman's ghost".
Also in his story during Siege of Odawara, when Yoshimoto encountered Ujimasa, he will call out on the latter about how Ujimasa attack him, his own uncle, only for Ujimasa corrected him it was he who attack Ujimasa.note Ujimasa's mother, which is also Ujiyasu's wife, is Yoshimoto's sister.
During Sekigahara, Yoshimoto says the exactly same words with what he had said earlier in Kyushu to Yoshihiro about his giant hammer, prompting the latter to lampshade this in a bored tone.
The DLC stage "Test of Wits" has Motonari tricking Hanbei and Kanbei into fighting his army so he can write a book about their strategies. Throughout the stage, Kanbei is dreading the book more and more, while Hanbei starts to look forward to it...Then Motonari sends them a copy of his book, and Hanbei fights it so dense and unreadable that he tosses it into the fire.
In the last stage of Uesugi Chapter, Kagekatsu can encounter Kai, and then the latter will demand that she wants to meet Kagekatsu and she does not accept responses. Kagekatsu, being the guy he is, is completely tongue-tied.
In 4 for the Sanada Chapter, anytime Kunoichi decided to push Kai's Berserk Button:
In the first encounter, she caught Kai looking at the reflection of her in the pond and trying to assure that she's pretty. Once Kunoichi got caught, she stated about hearing a rumor about 'a bear that can talk and mumbling about her beauty'. Kai is pissed because Kunoichi is implying that she's the bear.
In the second encounter, Kunoichi specifically brought Ina, just fresh from her marriage with Nobuyuki, to sneak to the enemy camp, just to announce to Kai that Ina is a married lady. Kai gets pissed again, this time because of the implication about she'll never get married like the tomboy she is.
