"Weakness is a sin, the weak can grasp nothing!"

Toyotomi Hideyoshi is a character first playable in Sengoku BASARA 2. In history, he was a retainer of Oda Nobunaga, and united Japan after him.


In Sengoku BASARA 2, Hideyoshi is a rival of Nobunaga and fights alongside his vassal Takenaka Hanbei.


Hideyoshi was born a normal, if big, man, and became friends with Maeda Keiji early in his life. They were good friends who spent their days pulling pranks or defending the locals from bandits. Hideyoshi at one point fell in love with a woman named Nene. Although young and seemingly happy, his lifestyle soon changed after a single encounter with Matsunaga Hisahide. Hideyoshi, overestimating his own strength and ability, tried to investigate Hisahide's might. Overtaken by the enemy's forces, he was captured and forced to suffer through humiliating displays of his weakness. After Keiji rescused him, Hideyoshi came to the realization that strength and power meant everything in the world. He began to harbor an incredible ambition: to create a powerful country where people could stand for themselves and prosper. However, because of the scars left by the humiliation he suffered from Hisahide, Hideyoshi's mind had become stigmatized and fixated on his absolute desire for power. Hideyoshi was now willing to grow into the ruthless warlord he needed to be to realize his ambitions; going so far as to murdering his love Nene. Needless to say, his relationship with Keiji had become strained.

One of the few things that separated Hideyoshi and Nobunaga was that, despite being a ruthless warlord, Hideyoshi still maintained a show of charisma and care for his army. This simple yet major clash in views causes the two to see one another as rivals.

After Nobunaga's assassination by Akechi Mitsuhide, Hideyoshi took the opportunity to position himself as Japan's most powerful warlord.

Before his dream of a power-driven Japan came to fruition, Hideyoshi's vassal, Tokugawa Ieyasu, revolted and took his life.

Hideyoshi returns as a playable character in Sengoku BASARA 4. He hunts down Sen no Rikyu.


Hideyoshi is a big, slow moving, character, but sometimes his strikes come out quick. He is also the only character specializing in grappling special moves, likening him to another Capcom characters Zangief from Street Fighter and Mike Haggar from Final Fight.

Prior to Sengoku BASARA 4 version, Hideyoshi is considered to be a normal characters, vulnerable to be thrown to the air with an attack that supposed to throw the opponent away to the air or causes the enemy to be flipped (for example, Masamune's Death Fang, Yukimura's Daisharin or Azai's Kizan-Juumonji). But in Sengoku BASARA 4, he becomes a heavy character that is nearly immune to impact attacks, similar to Kuroda Kanbei, but still inferior to Honda Tadakatsu, due to Hideyoshi's vulnerability to grappling attack.

In Sengoku BASARA 4, Hideyoshi has the unique ability to chain his grab skills up to 4 or 5 times. When Hideyoshi performs a grab skill (except the basic grab), he will blink red near the end. During this time, the player must input another grab skill to continue the chain. At the 4th or 5th grab of the chain, Hideyoshi will perform a powered up version of that skill. This is considered to be his Battle Style features

Historical informationEdit


Toyotomi Hideyoshi

Toyotomi Hideyoshi  豊臣秀吉 February 2, 1536 – September 18, 1598

Toyotomi Hideyoshi was an exception in Japanese history – a peasant ruling over the country. He was smart, crafty and ambitious, though he was not a master swordsman. At his birth he received the name of Hiyoshimaru, which means "Generosity of the Sun". Under this name he served some minor lords. When he was 15 he met with Oda Nobunaga and introduced himself as Kinoshita Yaemon. But in political and military community he was first recognized by the name of Kinoshita Tokichiro. Along with this new name Hideyoshi received an unflattering nick-name "Saru" meaning "monkey" due to his physique - he was rather short with odd proportions. By the age of 26 he became a general and changed his name first to Hashiba Hideyoshi, and later – to Toyotomi Hideyoshi. At 54 Toyotomi defeated Shibata Katsue in their struggle for the empire and in fact finalized unification of Japan. A year later he was awarded by the emperor with the title of "Taiko" which gave him authority to deal with all administrative issues in the country, both civil and military, as well as make laws.

Toyotomi Hideyoshi died in 1598 at age 61. His death was kept a secret by the Council of Five Elders to preserve morale, and the Japanese forces in Korea were ordered to withdraw back to Japan by the Council of Five Elders.
