Role in GamesEdit

Samurai WarriorsEdit

During Musashi's story in Samurai Warriors 2, he is among the few Western generals still on the field, leading the remnants of Mitsunari's army. His servant, Musashi Miyamoto, tries his best to protect him from Kobayakawa's army. Ukita protects the remnants of the main camp to honor his loyalty to the Toyotomi and holds out long enough for them to escape. Before retreating, he thanks Musashi for his servitude and duty.

Hideie is given a more prominent role in the third game. He is normally a generic officer for the Toyotomi and Western Armies, but is the acting commander at the siege of Fushimi Castle. He condemns the Tokugawa as enemies of the state and orders Fushimi Castle to be burnt down as a warning to Ieyasu.

In Warriors Orochi, Hideie often serves as Mitsunari's replacement officer whenever players assume the latter's role.


Ukita is one of the largest units for the Western Army in Kessen. He has average military stats but a good number of riflemen and archers. A loyal man for Mitsunari, he will agree to any of his orders. He doubts Josui's sincerity, claiming that the man's greedy ambition is unfit to lead the Toyotomi forces. Like many Western generals, he can either live to end Ieyasu or disappear sometime after they lose Sekigahara. In the latter scenario, he stays with the Toyotomis until Seta or Osaka Castle. In one of the Tokugawa's scenarios, both he and Ii will die during the battle at Hakone.

Saihai no YukueEdit

He is an arrogant, high-classed general in Saihai no Yukue. He brags about his "supreme" intellect and often gives degrading nicknames to his allies and enemies. When he talks, yellow sparkles surround his head. Never seeing eye to eye with the lower class, Ukita generally believes he can handle any obstacle without anyone's help. In reality, he only wants to prove himself as a worthy successor to his family. After Mitsunari tells him to sternly believe in his orders and allies, Ukita softens and begins to emphasize with his comrades. Although he's sometimes annoyed by Ukita's bragging, Mitsunari comes to see him as a good friend. Once his lord learns the reasons behind Fukushima's grudge, Ukita berates the Eastern general as a weakling who cannot overcome the past and personally rids him from the battlefield.

After Yoshitsugu and Sakon's deaths, Ukita is routed by the enemy. His vassal, Takenori Akashi, sacrifices his life to ensure his lord's safety. He fled from the field but his whereabouts remain unknown for the rest of the game. According to the official databook, he is exiled to Hachijojima several days after Sekigahara concludes.
