The Dark Shogun and Dictators are the main villains from Sengoku 2.
A malevolent time-traveling demon, the Dark Shogun plans to conquer not only the world, but time itself. He unleashes his evil army through the eras, starting in 1570, during the battles of the Warring States in Japan.
A shrine maiden called Mikohime from that era pray for the legendary warriors named Claude Yamamoto and Jack Stone (they have names this time) to come and save them. The two warriors, who lived during the present time, are sent back in time, so the maiden asks their help, lending the spirits of three ancient warriors to help them. They fight the forces of the Dark Shogun and defeat them, so he travels to 1940, during World War II, where he forms an alliance with an evil dictator. Claude and Stone travel after him and defeats their forces in that time. Dark Shogun and Dictator dispatches Kitsune youkai named Fusehime and her demonic pet Yatsufusa to kill the two heroes but the two youkais are badly defeated.
So the Dark Shogun and the Dictator travel to 1990, where Dark Shogun's forces are defeated by Claude and Stone as well. This time a demon warrior named Yoshitsune is sent to kill Claude and Stone. Seeing that the two heroes are more than a match for him, Yoshitsune summoned Water Dragon to aid him killing the heroes. But even with Water Dragon's power Claude and Stone still merged victorious.
With his patience ended, the Dark Shogun transports the two warriors to his castle, so he can finish them by himself. The two warriors fight the evil dictator, then the Shogun himself, but as they are defeated they fuse themselves into a giant demon, declaring that they would not die until they get what they want. The giant demon, after vicious combat, is ultimately defeated, so the Dark Shogun's demon castle disappears and the two warriors are thanked by Mikohime and transported back to the present to continue their normal lives.
