Ii Naotora is a new playable character featured in Sengoku BASARA 4. The hot-blooded female general of the Ii army burns with animosity towards all of the world's men.


Naotora swings her sword for the sake of making a world for maidens, offering relief to the maidens who grieve in war. In the past, her fiance fled due to the war with the Takeda army dragging on for so long. It's because of this that she harbours one-sided hostility towards Takeda Shingen.


Naotora uses a huge sword in battle. This gives her decent range and coverage, but gives her slower attack speeds compared to other characters. To be explained shortly, based on her speed, skills, and attack range, she is on the same tier as Takeda Shingen. She is also one of the characters with High damage, can be said that she is one of those powerful Tower Breaker (Area Outposts) in the game.

Naotora has a unique ability to modify or extend all of her skills. This allows her to follow-up her skills with a "shorter version" or another skill or add certain effect of another skill. To do this, the player must trigger a skill, then quickly press the button (or button combination) for another skill. she can use this skill continuously, however, some of her skills cannot be followed up,

Naotora's Basara art deals fairly great amount of damage, the reach isn't that good, only noticeable that only the finisher attack which have a decent range. It is difficult to control the direction, kind of similar to Shima Sakon, making it effective for duel against opponent that is not on Heaven difficulty.

Historical InformationEdit

Ii Naotora (井伊直虎) was the daughter of Ii Naomori, the eighteenth clan head of Ii. After the death of her father in Okehazama, her cousin Ii Naochika was about to marry her so he can inherit the clan. Due to a slander from one of Imagawa retainers, Naochika was forced to commit suicide but he chose to flee to Shinano instead. Later he went back to Imagawa but he had already married to another woman while in fleeing. Naochika momentarily ruled the clan until another slander came again, which caused him to be executed by Imagawa Ujizane. After his death, Naotora became the head of the Ii clan until her death in 1582, making her adopted son from Naochika, the famed Ii Naomasa, its head.

Because of such history, Ii Naotora is known as a female samurai although there are some argued accounts of her activities during her rule as the clan head.
