Toshiie Maeda is a character in the Sengoku BASARA series.
Another of Nobunaga's most prominent vassals, Toshiie may not seem so in the game. A strong family man, he loves his wife Matsu Maeda (and adopted brother Keiji) dearly, but he doesn't have much for brains. He seems to be perpetually famished, often asking Matsu for more food, even though he's had enough.
He is the usual target of Keiji's pranks, which often lead him to chase Keiji around the house.
Toshiie wields a trident and his element is fire.
Toshiie's "joke" weapons are a pair of humungous swordfish (still alive and flapping around in his grasp).
Historical Information Edit
The character is loosely based on Toshiie Maeda, who was one of the leading generals of Nobunaga Oda following the Sengoku period of the 16th century extending to the Azuchi-Momoyama period. His father was Toshimasa Maeda. He was the fourth of seven brothers. His childhood name was "Inuchiyo" (犬千代).
His preferred weapon was a yari, and he was known as "Yari no Mataza" (槍の又左), Matazaemon (又左衛門) being his common name. The highest rank from the court that he received is the Great Counselor Dainagon (大納言).
