In the last battle, I defeated numerous enemies. I must look beyond this achievement and strive to better myself even further.
— Yukimura Sanada


Yukimura Sanada is a protagonist of the Koei-verse and powerful spear user serving the Takeda clan. He is often a rival for the legendary Shu spear user and fellow franchise-figurehead Zhao Yun, both of whom are central characters to the games themselves and often portrayed as the primary protagonist. He is often honor-bound and amiable, and is held to be among the finest if not the absolute best soldiers Japan has ever seen, as stated by Ieyasu Tokugawa (A general that is considered stronger physically than Yukimura)
