Sasuke Sarutobi is the name of a fictional ninja famed as one of the Sanada Ten Braves. A formidable trickster, he fought for his clan's struggles against the Tokugawa until their defeat at Ōsaka Castle.

Before his playable debut in the Samurai Warriors series, Sasuke appeared as a ninja bodyguard in Samurai Warriors 2.

Role in GamesEdit

He is Hanzō's disciple in Samurai Warriors: Sanada Maru. He initially aids Kunoichi and the Sanada as they help escort Yukimura, Chacha and Muramatsu to safety as children. Later on in Yukimura's youth, Sasuke formally join the Sanada, but, in reality, is an agent for the Tokugawa. As the Sanada clan rises, so too does their defiance against the Tokugawa's rule, and this is further cemented when they choose to side with the Toyotomi.

With his meetings with Hanzo, Sasuke becomes more conflicted about his loyalties after the death of Hideyoshi, but he is spotted by Kunoichi during one such meeting, and the two nearly duel to the death had it not been for Yukimura's intervention. Though he quietly leaves the Sanada in the leadup to the Eastern Army's siege of Ueda, he foils Hanzo's attempt to attack Yukimura, and rejoins the Sanada, helping fight back the Eastern Army. Shortly after, he reports the Eastern victory at Sekigahara, and joins Yukimura and Masayuki in their exile. Shocked to meet his teacher and Ieyasu during the exile, he is the first to greet them before Ieyasu's meeting with Masayuki.

After Masayuki's death, he joins Kunoichi and Yukimura in heading to Osaka Castle to protect Hideyori. Although the winter siege damages the castle, the defenders are able to hold on. During the summer siege, however, in the lead up to the final battle, Sasuke and Hanzo duel to the death, and Sasuke dies at the conclusion of the fight.

Kessen portrays Sasuke as one of Yukimura's loyal kunoichi. Should Masayuki die due to an assassination attack sent by Hidetada Tokugawa, Sasuke and the other kunoichi will defend Yukimura while he mourns his father. Should Yukimura be victorious at Osaka Castle, they will charge Ieyasu's camp and slay him. Sasuke deduces that they have actually killed a double instead of the real Ieyasu. If Yukimura dies during any of the final battles, she will visit his grave to pay her respects.

Character InformationEdit

PersonalityEdit

Sasuke is emotionally distant from anyone other than Hanzō, whom the youth has come to see as a father figure for raising him and teaching him the ways of the ninja. However, interactions with Yukimura gives him the opportunity to open up to others.

QuotesEdit

  • "Hey, it's Kunoichi. Have you been keeping up with your training?"
"I'm busy with the real thing, so I'm not going to waste time doing that. I'm fine without it, but I can't say the same about you."
"You sure? Look, aren't you getting a bit fat? Y'see, around here?"
"No, no, no. You're seeing things, and you've got too much time on your hands. Ah, there's Yukimura! Later, Sasuke!"
~~Sasuke and Kunoichi; 100man-nin no Sengoku Musou

FolkloreEdit

Hailed as the most famous member of the Sanada Ten Braves, Sasuke is said to have come from the Kōga ninja line. Other sources claim that he had been cared for by monkeys and acquired their fast reflexes, thus explaining the meaning of his name "Monkey Jump". Legends say he began his ninja training under the tutelage of Hakunsai Tozawa who initially mocked him for his inexperience.

Most stories depict him as a foil to the more dashing Kirigakure Saizo, another fictional ninja who came to be his rival and friend. During the Siege of Osaka, the two of them flawlessly trapped their enemies in a field of land mines. Though the cause of his death differs in each tale, Sasuke generally dies resisting the Tokugawa forces. One version has him successfully infiltrate Ieyasu's base only to be caught by a bear trap while escaping. Rather than face capture, he cut off his own leg and killed himself afterwards.
