Yukiden - Hanbei
Just one more step until the dream can be fulfilled.
~ Hanbei Takenaka
Takenaka Hanbei is a villain introduced in Sengoku Basara 2. Hanbei fights loyally alongside his lord, Hideyoshi Toyotomi.


Hanbei Takenaka is the strategist of Hideyoshi Toyotomi, also a rival of Kojuro Katakura. He is such a good strategist, that he even anticipated Motonari Mori's moves.

He usually wears a purple mask covering some parts of his face and has white hair. Hanbei's weapon is a whip sword, a extendible sword which has a great amount of speed along with his movements. His element is darkness.



  • While said to be dead before the events of Sengoku BASARA 3, Hanbei can be seen in one of the opening movies alongside Hideyoshi.
