The Miyoshi Trio (三好三人衆), also sometimes referred to as the Miyoshi Death Trio and the Reaper Corps, are a team of Samurai in the service of Matsunaga Hisahide. They all sport masks, wield a katana and lances in battle and have made appearances in Sengoku BASARA 2 Heroes, Sengoku BASARA 3 Utage, as well as a few episodes during the anime's first season.
Appearances[edit | edit source]
In Azai Nagamasa's story, he will encounter the Miyoshi Trio while they raze a village.
In Maeda Keiji's gaiden story, he and Toyotomi Hideyoshi encounter the same group while defending a village. Later Keiji fought and defeated them to rescue Hideyoshi. The trio appear in front of the gate, defending it.
In Katakura Kojūrō's story, the trio will defend the gates from him 3 times throughout.
In Arena Mode, they will appear several times.
Historical Information[edit | edit source]
The Miyoshi Trio are based on the Miyoshi Clan, a Japanese family descended from Emperor Seiwa and the Minamoto Clan. Most likely, they are specifically based on the Miyoshi Triumvirate, a group of Samurai who took over leadership of the clan after the death of Lord Miyoshi Chokei, largely believed to have been murdered by Matsunaga Hisahide.
At the beginning of the 14th century AD, Ogasawara Nagafusa settled in Shikoku. His descendant in the 8th-century generation settled in the district of Miyoshi and took the name of the place. They were great vassals of the Hosokawa Clan the all powerful in Shikoku.
