Added DiffLines:

* ArtisticLicenseHistory: As opposed to the historical records where Hideyoshi was formerly a sandal-bearer of Nobunaga, this Hideyoshi didn't have such record in his life. After meeting Hisahide, he built up his power from zero into a large enough force to be rivaling Nobunaga.


* GreenEyes: Normally. He's notably the only character in the series with green eyes. May represent his envy of Ieyasu.


* DrunkWithPower

* %%* DrunkWithPower


* [[spoiler:[[KillItWithFire Killed With Fire]]: In Ieyasu's drama route in ''[=SB4=]''. He's holding Matsunaga above the ground, apparently victorious - Matsunaga retaliates by suicide nuking Hideyoshi from point blank range in front of Keiji and Ieyasu, effectively turning Hideyoshi into a grilled corpse]]. Keiji doesn't take it well ''at all''.

* [[WhenAllYouHaveIsAHammer When All You Have Is Punching]]: Showcased in the anime. Hideyoshi has a very, shall we say, ''hands-on'' approach to dealing with things.

* CastingAShadow

to:

* CastingAShadowCastingAShadow: His element has always been darkness, serving as the shadow to Toyotomi's light.



* GlassCannon

to:

* GlassCannonGlassCannon: Hanbe is swift and deadly with his chain sword, able to wipe out large swaths of enemies at a distance, but he needs to ''keep'' that distance or his own frailty will be his downfall.



* TheLastDance: Vows to bring Hideyoshi to the top of Japan before tuberculosis claims him. It's explained in ''3'' that he eventually did make him ruler, and died peacefully soon afterwards.

* SpellMyNameWithAnS: His name is spelt "Hanbee" in kana, which ''Samurai Heroes'' romanised as "Hanbe". However, the anime dub used "Hanbei" instead.
* TheStrategist: Implied to be the cleverest of the lot, save from the fact that his illness somewhat limits his capabilities.
** He successfully besieged Inabayama Castle with only ''sixteen'' men before he even met Hideyoshi, and that was five years before the Siege of Odawara, some time after [[spoiler:Hideyoshi killed Nene]]. That's right, he was practically only pushing ''20'' at the time.

* AnimeHair



* ArchEnemy: It alternates between Ieyasu or Masamune, though Ieyasu is the most frequent target of Mitsunari's undying wrath for the death of Hideyoshi.



* BlackAndWhiteInsanity: Unlike Yoshitsugu, Mitsunari genuinely believes himself to be in the right and that those around him (except Yoshitsugu) are vile sinners for having denied Hideyoshi. He also believes that since his revenge is justified it must be done honourably.



* CastingAShadow

to:

* CastingAShadowCastingAShadow: Darkness is his element, fitting his lunar theme and opposition to Ieyasu.



* [[ShesGotLegs He's Got Legs]]: Long and slender, as the anime and ''particularly'' the third manga like to [[FemaleGaze emphasize]].



* KnightTemplar[=/=]BlackAndWhiteInsanity: Unlike Yoshitsugu, Mitsunari genuinely believes himself to be in the right and that those around him (except Yoshitsugu) are vile sinners for having denied Hideyoshi. He also believes that since his revenge is justified it must be done honourably - see EvenEvilHasStandards above.



* [[MyNameIsInigoMontoya My Name is Ishida Mitsunari]]: Very much the case with his ''[=SB3=]'' story mode. Though with a great deal more angst.

* TheRemnant

to:

* TheRemnantTheRemnant: After Hideyoshi's death, it falls to Mitsunari to lead what's left of their forces in his quest for vengeance.



* TheRival[=/=]ArchEnemy: Towards Ieyasu.
** [[spoiler:Averted in the movie. Where he does give up his desire to avenge his lord.]]



* ShesGotLegs: Mitsunari's long and slender legs are a rare male example, as the anime and ''particularly'' the third manga like to [[FemaleGaze emphasize]].



* [[UnusualEyebrows Swooped Eyebrows]]: Making his expression even more severe.

to:

* [[UnusualEyebrows Swooped Eyebrows]]: Making UnusualEyebrows: His eyebrows are heavily swooped, making his expression even more severe.

* CoDragons: With Sakon to Mitsunari in ''Sengoku Basara 4''. However, it seems that Yoshitsugu has seniority over Sakon.



* TheCorrupter[=/=]EvilMentor: To Oichi in her blue path, shaping her into his greatest weapon.

* BlowYouAway

to:

* BlowYouAwayBlowYouAway: His speed is great enough to kick up gusts of wind when he fights.


* DesperatelyLookingForAPurposeInLife: Possibly the reason why he latches onto the Toyotomi despite not sharing their goal - Sakon felt lost, and following Mitsunari will at least give him some sort of direction to go in. [[spoiler:Comes to a tragic end in his anime route, when he dies for his master's sake.]]
-->'''Sakon''': "[[TearJerker Surely...this day...is what I lived for...]]"

* IKnowYoureInThereSomewhereFight: Has one with [[spoiler:Mitsunari in his anime ending. Ieyasu's killed Hideyoshi and Hanbe's died, leaving Mitsunari stuck in Reverence mode, crying tears of blood and trying to tear apart anything that moves. [[HeroicSacrifice Sakon takes all of Mitsunari's anger until he comes to his senses]], [[GoOutWithASmile but drops dead with a smile a few moments later]], much to Mitsunari's dismay]]. Mitsunari does this A LOT.

* HistoricalVillainUpgrade: He had leprosy in real life, and was famously good friends with Mitsunari. The 'evil sorcerer planning eternal misery on humanity' part, not so much.

* PutThemAllOutOfMyMisery: The [[Pantheon/{{Hatred}} God of the trope]]! Though this is more of a case of "Put them all in as much misery as me". His goal is to spread as much misery and suffering through the world as he is in due to his leprosy.

* {{Lunacy}}: Has a fair amount of symbolism involving the moon to contrast Ieyasu's sunniness, noticeably in the crescents that his slashes take the form of, and the prevalence of the moon in his castle stage. Plus the fact he's insane.

* [[spoiler:WeUsedToBeFriends]]: It's revealed in the last battle of Mitsunari's drama route ending that what wounded him more than Ieyasu betraying Hideyoshi was [[spoiler:Ieyasu betraying ''himself''. Mitsunari genuinely believed that as long as he and Ieyasu were comrades they could accomplish anything - if Hideyoshi failed to bring peace to the people, he and Ieyasu could as a team.]] So for him, Ieyasu leaving the army by himself was the same as [[spoiler:Ieyasu believing he could do a better job sorting out the country alone than he could with Mitsunari by his side]]. While Ieyasu agrees with him, they do battle anyways because of Mitsunari's loyalty to his lord and [[spoiler:the fact that he doesn't see Ieyasu as the friend he used to have anymore]].
