Oda Nobunyaga (織田のぶニャが) is the titular character of Nobunyaga no Yabou and Guruguru Dungeon Nobunyaga. Since the game's inception, he became a costumed mascot for Koei-Tecmo Holdings with the most prolific public appearances to date.
He is often paired with Nyabraham Linnyahn during early public appearances. Date Masiamune, Utsunomiyah Kunitsuna, Siamzu Yoshihiro, and Ishida Mitsunyari have since joined him for events. Company representatives commonly address him Lord or Milord (殿, tono) when he is present.
Nobunyaga is tooted as an extraordinary visionary who dreams of seeing the world. While he is a military and political genius, the kitty lord is aloof and independent. Nobunyaga sometimes has no shame regarding his public image, letting himself be photographed when he is dead tired. He loves the attention he receives but nonchalantly devalues his own talents by claiming himself to be a simple cat. Nobunyaga likes modern culture and technology yet he is too lazy to manage his own Twitter account, choosing to leave it in Nyaraki's hands. He has a short fuse once offended, often seeking to physically punish whoever insulted him.
In the Sengoku Nabe animated shorts, he prides himself to be a trend setter who is proficient in everything. Nobunyaga adores his wife and page. Nohime-nyan's different outfits are canonically due to Nobunyaga's insistence for her to play dress up, much to his wife's dismay. Nobunyaga once called Nyanmaru to his side to join him in a romantic duet. He proclaims Misuhuide to be his trustworthy friend only to diss him at any opportunity.
