Musashi Miaymoto

Musashi Miyamoto is a character from the Sengoku BASARA series of strategy action games. He appeared in Sengoku BASARA 2, Sengoku BASARA 2: Heroes and as a Roulette enemy in Sengoku BASARA 4 Sumeragi.

ProfileEdit

Musashi is a playable character in Sengoku BASARA 2. He has a wild looking appearance, wielding an oar (a reference to his historical fight against Kojirō Sasaki) and a bokken (wooden sword), with black stripes on his cheeks. He returns as a deadly non-playable character in Sengoku BASARA 4 Sumeragi. His appearance is more or less the same, except for the fact that he now wears a balaclava (ninja mask). If the player is knocked down if/when Musashi is summoned by the Roulette wheel, the player must get up quickly or suffer an instant death. It is possible (though difficult) to defeat him and be rewarded.

Historical BackgroundEdit

Musashi Miyamoto was a famed Japanese swordsman and author of The Book of Five Rings. He defeated his first enemy at the age of thirteen. At fifteen, Musashi began traveling the country and fought a lot of duels. According to his words, he won over sixty duels. Musashi founded Ni-Ten Ichi Ryu swordsmanship style for fighting with two swords. In some fights, he used a wooden sword, which turned out to be as deadly for his adversaries as a sharp katana. Musashi was also skilled in throwing weapons (wakizashi and shurikens). In 1612, Musashi had his most famous duel with another renowned swordsman Kojirō Sasaki. The fight was short; Musashi killed his opponent with the wooden sword and left. There is a different version that had Musashi killing Kojirō with an oar from the small boat he arrived in. Musashi was also notorious for rarely bathing or changing his clothes. Supposedly, he had eczema. In 1645, he finished his Book of Five Rings and, soon after, died from throat cancer.

TriviaEdit

  • Musashi is a vagabond, meaning that he is a homeless wanderer, and does not ally himself with any faction in the series.
  • His seiyuu is Namikawa Daisuke, while his voice actor in English for the anime's second season is Sean Michael Teague.
