Sengoku BASARA 2 Heroes
The Gohonyari is a group of mercenaries, who in the course of the game have been hired by Hōjō Ujimasa, Azai Nagamasa and Shimazu Yoshihiro. They are supposed to be the Sengoku version of a group of righteous "super sentai rangers".
All five members of the Gohonyari use spears, staying true to their name (Five Spears). Each member also wear the traditional samurai armor with the color representing their respective element. In addition, each member also refers to himself by his element and his "number". In each of their appearace, they are often shown as some sort of comedy, up to and including some of their attacks. Their portraits (in dialogs) even shows each member even though only one of them is actually speaking. However, they always show some teamwork and unity.
In Battle Edit
In battle, they often apply teamwork and coordination through the use combination attacks, but before they actually perform it, they jump to a formation (a line or circle) and poses (as well as shouting "Gohonyari!"). Their attacks usually involves charging at the player either all-at-once or one-by-one. In addition, they all share the same life bar. As such, damaging even just one of them, damages the all of them. However, it should also be noted that they cannot be staggered and their attacks cannot be canceled. Lastly, if the player inflict enough damage on them, they will stop receiving further damage and do their final attack. A huge cannon will appear for them to ride and will start charging to fire a few unblockable shots (the number depends on the difficulty). These shots can greatly damage the player, but can easily be avoided. Afterwards, it will explode "killing" the Gohonyari (the kill still counts for the player).
