Samurai Warriors 4 Adds Ranmaru Mori

By Spencer . November 13, 2013 . 11:34pm

I think the last time we say Ranmaru Mori was in Pokémon Conquest as one of Nobunaga Oda’s bodyguards. Ranmaru has a storyline where he (yes he) is invited to compete to become the Queen of Ransai, an all women battle. He’s originally from the Samurai Warriors series and returns for Samurai Warriors 4.

  • I remember a Ranmaru from Orochi 3 but she used a bow

    • surachokes

      I think that’s Inahime? Ranmaru mainly used a long katana.

    • fyi1191

      That is Sengoku Basara’s Ranmaru. An archer.

  • Erena Arisu

    now you are confusing me siliconera… ” He’s originally from the Samurai Warriors series and returns for Samurai Warriors 4”

  • Nitraion

    I remember in first game he was she-man

    now look’s like revert again

  • Monterossa

    He’s not a woman. In the history of Japan, he and Nobunaga are a gay couple, respectively.

    • AAa

      TO those who downvote this guy, i’m very sorry to inform you all that is TRUE. They are shudo.

      • J_Joestar

        the term couple doesn’t depict the relationship well though, something closer to a concubine, but male.

        • Exkaiser

          It’s basically the same as the Greek eromenos.

        • Aetheus

          Butt buddies.

      • Fox

        The whole stigma attached to homosexuality is a fairly recent thing. Particularly in Japan. It’s weird to think that a country so prolific with offensive gay stereotypes was perfectly fine with homosexuality (and ephebophilia) all the way up to the last century or so.

    • Sardorim

      They weren’t a couple. Nobunaga was married to Noh but he had taken Ranmaru as a young boy lover which was a very common practice.

  • Dark Zerato

    He’s more mature and less feminine now. Good job TK.

  • Rayhan PromisedGallery


  • Exkaiser

    He’s so pretty…
