Ikki Tousen (一騎当千) is a Samurai Warriors character image song. The song first appeared on the event exclusive CD for Seiyuu Ougi 2014 Spring 10th Anniversary as its theme song and later on the variety CD Ouka Ranman. It's a quartet sung by Takeshi Kusao, Nobuyuki Hiyama, Eiji Takemoto and Masaya Matsukaze: Yukimura Sanada, Masamune Date, Mitsunari Ishida and Takatora Tōdō respectively.

The song's title can be translated as "Superheroes" or "One-Man Army". Its origins are unknown but ancient in Japanese literature. Based on the literal reading of the characters, it means someone who has the power to defeat a thousand opponents. The four character idiom was used to describe someone who surpassed the strength, courage and wisdom of trained warriors or samurai. Since samurai were already heralded as the highest pinnacle of power, it implies that the person must be an unparalleled superhuman. Unlike kishin, or "Demon God", ikki tousen is meant to be gratifying and carries positive connotations. Koei often uses the idiom as a slogan in the Japanese marketing for their Warriors IPs to quickly summarize the goal of these titles.

燃え立つ地平線
焔(ほむら)が生まる如し
誓わん 暁に
我らが猛き勝利
今 観ゆるぞ あの空に
己が天下の栄ふる明日
我らもののふ
本意あるば 突き進む 此の乱世が道
行くはもののふ
嗚呼 幾度(いくたび)戦えど 今日初陣と心得よ
さすれば遂げる志
一騎当千 進め
高虎:明けし天(そら)に 映ゆる大地
三成:此の国と 我が家 守らんと
政宗:風に靡く 旗印に
込めし信念(おもい)
幸村:唯 泰平の世を作ろうぞ

我らもののふ
本意あるば 突き進む 此の乱世が道
行くはもののふ
嗚呼 幾度(いくたび)戦えど 今日初陣と

Like the burning dawn
blazing across the horizon,
we do solemnly swear
to remain dauntless for our victory
Look now towards that sky,
towards the glorious future world we seek
We are warriors
Our intentions are clear as we choose chaos as our path
We go as warriors
Ah, we fight countless battles, but we know from today's first march
that to achieve our aspirations
we must rise above common men. Onwards
Takatora:To see a new dawn and to expose a new land
Mitsunari:I can't rely on current affairs. I must protect my home
Masamune:The banner fluttering in the wind is
filled with faith made
Yukimura:I want to create the land of peace
Together:by my own hand
We are warriors
Our intentions are absolute as we proceed into the chaos
We go as warriors
Ah, we fight countless battles, and from today's first march we know
that we are warriors
Our motives are true as we ride towards this chaos
We go as warriors
Ah, the battles are endless, but we understand from the moment we set out
that to realize our aspirations
we must become unmatched in the field. Forward, forward, forward
