* HistoricalDomainCharacter: The only character thus far in ''Nioh'' to avert this; while the historical Masamune did consort with foreign parties, there's no historical records stating the presence of a specific Spanish woman called Maria. In all likelihood, Lady Maria is an OriginalGeneration created specifically for this game, though she might be inspired by María Pita, a Galician heroine who defends the northern Spain against English invasion in 1589 during Anglo-Spanish War.



* HistoricalDomainCharacter: {{Averted|Trope}}. Sarutobi Sasuke is a fictional character who's shown up in various narrative writings. The origins of said character have been in debate for the longest time, such as being a CompositeCharacter of two real life warriors. However, he's such a popular character of Japanese culture, it's hard to find anything with Sanada Yukimura ''without'' Sarutobi Sasuke or someone filling the role.


* CaptainErsatz: A LadyOfWar who gracefully rips her opponent apart with a sword, serving as a BossFight for a DownloadableContent in an ActionRPG - are we talking about this character or another [[VideoGame/{{Bloodborne}} woman named Lady Maria]]?

*MultiMeleeMaster: Uses both his sword and a kusarigama to fight you.
*MyRulesAreNotYourRules: The biggest offender in the game. Whereas most humanoid opponents have a bunch of gimmicks that you yourself can't perform, they otherwise fight similarly to William. Here, you have a guy that fights with a completely unique moveset and spells, and uses them extremely liberally.

*ImpossibleTheft: {{Inverted|Trope}}. The briefing involves Hanzo explaining that he found a note slipped into his breast pocket. Considering that Hanzo's a master ninja, this is even more impressive.

* ReusedCharacterDesign: His outfit is based on Ryu's outfit in the classic VideoGame/NinjaGaiden NES trilogy, and he uses various moves and attack from the series.
*SignatureMove: Given the opportunity, he'll even use the famous Izuna Drop.
