3. Yukimura Sanada/Sanada Family Information

Koei's Background Info:

Yukimura, his father Masayuki Sanada and their small army fought bravely 
against Ieyasu Tokugawa at the Battle of Sekigahara and gained fame and 
honor for defeating a much larger foe. At that time, Yukimura parted ways 
with older brother Noboyuki, and set off with his father and the western 
army to hold back Hidetada Tokugawa (son of shogun Ieyasu Tokugawa) at 
Ueda Castle. Upon the defeat of the western army, he fled to Kudoyama and
waited 14 years, then accepting Hideyori Toyotomi’s invitation to Osaka 
Castle. During the wintertime battle at Osaka, he constructed Sanada Castle,
demonstrating his resourcefulness and bravery. He rejected an offer from 
Ieyasu Tokugawa to govern the province of Shinano, opting instead to oppose
him on the battlefield until the end. At the summertime battle of Chausuyama,
he broke through the enemy army and reached Tokugawa’s flag three times, 
instilling fear in Tokugawa until his dying day.


Additonal Info(From http://www.samuraideeperkyo.us) :
 
Yukimura Sanada 1567-1615

Known as a wise samurai general, Yukimura of the Sanada Clan from Ueda 
fought with his father in the Western Army. After his father's death, 
Yukimura would have been the new warlord of the Sanada Clan, but he 
resigned and gave authority to one of his brothers to control the family 
line and instead disappeared into the mountains with his band of Koga 
ninjas(including the loyal Sasuke and Saizou). This was all part of the 
plan to make it look as if Sanada had been demolished. Yukimura and his 
ninja took refuge within the temple of Kunoichi-ryu, who were bitter enemies 
of the Shogun and agreed to help him. Their big chance came in 1614 when the
Tokugawa regime was challenged by Hideyori Toyotomi. He was the son of 
Hideyoshi Toyotomi, who once served under the warlord Nobunaga Oda. 
Sanada and his "Ten Brave Warriors", the Jyuyuushi. defended the Toyotomi 
Clan in what is called the "Winter Campaign" at Osaka in 1614. He helped 
fortify the castle with his army in what is known as "The Sanada barbican". 
however, the next year, in the "Summer Campaign" of 1615, Tokugawa's forces 
were able to burn down the castle and Sanada's fate ended in death, but not 
without revenge. Yukimura appeared in front of the Shogun Ieyasu and wounded 
him, only to be struck down and killed himself.

How to get Yukimura Sanada's Fifth Level Weapon.
Stage obtained in: Summer Campaign of Osaka
Step by Step Guide:
1. Lure the two generals to Sanadamaru.
2. Destroy the enemy mobile cannons.
3. Do not let any generals into the castle at any time.
4. Visit your leader/Return to Base.
5. Prevent/Defeat Date Masamune.
6. Defeat all enemy generals, except for Hanzou Hattori, & Ieyasu Tokugawa.
7. Get 1000 KOs.
8. Charge into the enemy camp and defeat the ambush party.

If you have achived the above, a supply team will appear in southwest 
of the map. Defeat Supply Captian for the weapon.



Detailed Step Guide:

1. First Lure the two generals to Sanadamaru, by running towards them and 
back to sanadamaru. A good way to do this is to first go to one of the 
generals, and then move back towards the blue X(Sanada-Maru), then go 
to the second general and lure him back to the X. Pretty Simple.

2. Once done luring the 2 generals to sanada-maru, ignore the two 
generals you just lured, and go defeat the cannons. Most likely atleast 
one of the generals you lure will follow you, so try to advoid them, 
for now, and concentrate on killing the cannons. Once you have defeated 
the mobile cannons, go back and defeat the generals that are in front 
of the castle's main gate, which would inculde the two generals you lure 
and the ones by the east and west gates. 

3. Once you have done that, return to your base, your Toyotomi will not 
open the gates for you. Proceed to the west gate now, and go through and 
around to where your Toyotomi is. While your going through to your 
Toyotomi, Hanzou's ninja units will appear, just run past them to your 
Toyotomi. Once you've talked to your Toyotomi, head back towards the west 
gate, rather quickly. 

4. Date Masamune will show up at the west gate and will attempt to 
enter the castle. I suggest being on Matsukaze, cause Date tends to 
get through the gate rather quickly. Defeat Date before he enters. Date 
isn't that hard to beat, but if you are running low on health, try to 
defeat a squad leader such as, strike ninjas, sky ninjas, head muskets, etc. 

5. After you have prevented and defeated date, Ieyasu Tokugawa will send 
all of his units to charge the castle. Look on the map, and look to see 
where the enemy generals are,defeat them before they enter the castle, 
to ensure that no one on your side dies, then clear out Hanzou's ninja 
unit thats in the castle. Also clear the west and east gate of enemys. 
I would suggest capturing both of the gates that are at the east and 
west castle gates to prevent more enemys from entering the castle. 
After you have cleared most of the castle, go out in front of the castle 
and start killing enemys. A good way to rack up kills is to sit by gates 
and kill the enemys that come out, but dont kill the gate captian, until 
you have atleast about 875-950 Kos. 

6. You will notice on the pause screen that Ieyasu has a couple sub 
generals left, and maybe a general. Most of the time, all of the generals 
charge the castle when Ieyasu tells his units to charge. Go defeat his sub 
generals and any enemy generals remaining. By this time, you should have 
atleast 925 kos. If not go back and kill more enemys. 

7. Once you have about 925 kills, charge into the Tokugawa Camp. When you 
enter you will be ambushed. Kill all of the units when you are ambushed. 
By the time you've done this, you will have 1000 Kos. Which in turn will 
trigger the Supply Team to come out. Head towards the southwest of the map 
and intercept them, and defeat the captian. A preious item report will show 
on the screen when you have picked up the weapon. Now go back into the 
Tokugawa camp. You will want to be quick cause by this time, you will be 
running out of time. Ieyasu will retreat and will leave Hanzou to deal 
with you. Defeat Hanzou Hattori to end the stage.

8. Enjoy your new fifth level weapon.


Required to get Fifth Level Weapon:
1. You MUST have completed his Musou/Story Mode once.
2. The Diffuclty must be on hard or chaos.


Recommended Tips:
1. Reset your charcter to lvl 1, and Level back up to around 16 to 20(Max) 
in hard mode.
2. Use a good fourth level weapon with him(Use Kunoichi Ueda castle 
Level on Chaos).
3. Equip Matsukaze Saddle, or +40 Regular Saddle.
4. Use +35 Items, that give +Attack, +Life, +Defense, +Musou.
5. Have True Musou Mastery Skill

16. Misc Tips on Yukimura Sanada Play Style and Stages

How to Unlock Arabian Saddle:
(Note* I added this cause it deals with one of Yukimura's Missions)
Stage: Summer Campaign of Osaka - Upper Path, Last Mission.

1. Lure the two generals to Sanadamaru.
2. Defeat the Mobile Cannons.
3. Prevent any generals from entering the castle.
4. Visit your Toyotomi.
5. Prevent Date Masamune from entering castle.
6. Defeat Date Masamune before he enters the west gate.

After you have achived the above the supply team will appear at the gate 
west of in front of the castle, and will move towards the gate near the east 
gate. Defeat the Captian for the Item.

Detailed Guide:

First lure the two generals to sanadamaru. Once you have lured 
them to sanadamaru, defeat them. Then proceed to defeat the enemy 
cannons, I would suggest killing the two closest to the main keep, 
then kill the ones that are moving towards the main keep. After you 
have defeated the cannons, go visit your Toyotomi. He will not open 
the gate for you, so go around to the west gate, and proceed though 
that way to visit the Toyotomi, while going through Hanzou's Ninja Unit 
will appear, just ingnore them. Once you have visited your Toyotomi, 
head back towards the west gate farily fast. Date Masamune will appear
at the west gate and attempt to enter the castle. Defeat Date before 
he enters the castle. Once you have defeated date, the supply team 
will appear. They appear at the very west gate in the middle of the 
map and head towards the gate that is next to the east gate. There 
are two way to intercept them. One is to go directly down from where 
you defeated date and go to the west gate where the appear. Second one 
would be to head to the east gate thats next to the castle's east gate. 
I would recommend usin Matsukaze Saddle. But they move kind of slow, 
and you should be able to catch them. Defeat the Supply captian. A 
Precious item report will show up when you have picked up the weapon. 
After you have gotten the weapon, charge into the Tokugawa camp. You will 
be ambushed. Defeat all of the enemys that ambush you. The gates will open. 
Ieyasu will flee and will leave Hanzou Hattori to defeat you. Defeat Hanzou 
Hattori to end the stage.

Note* It can be on any diffuclty(easy, normal, hard, chaos)



A combo that I have found that works very well on Generals is 
Yukimura's S+S+S+T+T+T Attack, its mutliple stabs takes generals life 
down pretty quickly, if the combo is done repeatly.

Another Combo I find usefull is Yukimura's S+T+T+T+T, as it does a 
fair ammount of damage.

Yukimura's Running attack is a great crowd clearer.

Combining Parry and Block Rare Skills helps alot agianst ranged 
attackers like muskets and arrowsmen.

Always get Mastery Rare Skill, as it gives you True Musou without 
your health being in red.

Vitailty, Rage, Potence, and Focus are good skills to invest in.

To Find better items and weapons during a stage, Eqiup the Kappa 
Ammulet and get level 3 discern, these two incease luck and weapon finds, 
and play Kunoichi's rescue at Ueda Castle on Chaos Mode.
