Added DiffLines:

* CulturedBadass: He's into a lot of Western cultures, becoming a patron for Christianity, reads poems for UsefulNotes/TokugawaIeyasu (also on his deathbed) and he's a badass when it comes to the art of war.


Added DiffLines:

* RealMenCook: He tends to hold banquets, makes sure they're eloquent to fit his CulturedBadass status... and he cooked the meals himself.


** ''VideoGame/WarriorsOrochi'' has a rather interesting take on Masamune. Chronologically, he's a steadfast ally of the Tokugawa, but the Orochi forces trampled the united force of Tokugawa-Date easily, casting doubts that Masamune was capable of uniting Japan, and thus surrenders himself to Orochi, becoming his NumberTwo, as he slowly felt some sort of kinship bond. He continued to act like he's worshipping Orochi while showing that the heroes, humans like them, [[GreyAndGrayMorality were no better than him]] as they chose to prolong the war in the merged realm rather than being at peace, something even the heroes note about making a point. In ''3'', however, once Masamune realized that Orochi's incarnation, Hydra, no longer had the mindset of the Orochi he called friend and instead was a mindless monster bent on destruction (personification of his power), he just called it quits and then joined the good guys ([[spoiler:which, when it was revealed that Orochi's consciousness went to Shuten Doji, who's a good guy, it makes Masamune's allegiance to Orochi seemed less evil as he seems to find kindship on his consciousness that would become Shuten Doji]])

Date Masamune is one of the most famous [[UsefulNotes/SengokuPeriod feudal era]] daimyo of Japan. Nicknamed ''Dokuganryuu'' ("[[RedBaron One/Single-Eyed Dragon]]") by later generations, and known for his [[NiceHat helmet adorned with a huge crescent moon]], he almost single-handedly unified Northern Japan with great ferocity and continued to rule as a political juggernaut for four decades through cunning and insight, especially in regards to foreign trade, Christianity and allegiances. He was an ally of UsefulNotes/TokugawaIeyasu during the Battle of Sekigahara and later during the Siege of Osaka.
