Hattori Hanzo Information
Hattori Hanzo, whose real name is Masanari, is a ninja who serves the Tokugawa clan as a retainer. The name Hanzo is one that is passed down the generations to the leader of the Iga clan.
In addition to training the Iga clan and engaging in the cladestine arts of concealment, Hanzo is also a military commander. Highly skilled with the spear, he is known as "the Demon Hanzo".
Following a plea from Oda Nobunaga, the Tokugawa forces join the Battle of Anergawa where they clash with the combined forces of the Azai and Asakura clans.
The tide of battle turns against the Tokugawa forces when large numbers of yokai join the ranks of their enemy's army. The ferocious commander of the Asakura forces, Magara Naotaka, even transforms into a yokai himself and cuts a swathe through the opposing forces. Leaving Honda Tadakatsu to take on Naotaka, Hanzo dedicates himself to protecting Ieyasu, his lord.
After Tokichiro's forces defeat Akechi Mitsuhide on Mount Tenno, they immediately launch an attack on the Tokugawa army stationed in Sakai.
As the Tokugawa forces beat a hasty retreat, hanzo stays behind in order to prevent Tokichiro's forces pursuing his master. At this point, he encounters the protagonist, who he initially believes to be a remnant of Tokichiro's forces. He soon realizes his mistake and lowers his spear. With the protagonist now loyal to Ieyasu, Hanzo decides that they should join forces.
The tokugawa forces subsequently regroup and prepare to face down Tokichiro's forces. Prior to the battle, Hanzo visits the protagonists and urges him to fight. He also recommends paying a visit to the tea house of Sen no Rikyu.
At the Battle of Komaki and Nagakute , Hanzo fights fiercely for a Tokugawa victory alongside the protagonist and Honda Tadakatsu.
