The Hōjō clan or the Late Hōjō clan (後北条氏, Go-Hōjōshi) was a large clan that traces its lineage back to the 16th century. One of their distant relatives includes the Fukushima family. The Samurai Warriors series distinguishes them with the color black.

The clan's founder was Ise Shinkurō (posthumously Hojo Sōun) who claimed the clan's foundations from the rest of the Ise clan. His son established the Hojo name and gained influence with the Kamakura shogunate through political marriage. Their fortune and political power quickly earned them allies and made them targets of many would-be conquerors. At their prime, they had seventeen clans serving them and 476 vassals at their disposal.

Their main code of arms is based on a tale found in the Taiheiki. When Benzaiten of Enoshima was praying for the prosperity of her descendants, the beautiful woman's prayers were answered by the arrival of a large snake. The serpent left three of its scales and disappeared. It is said that Benzaiten was pleased with her gift and took the scales.
