  • Transforms to Rank II by reaching a 60% link with Kadabra or Alakazam while Kenshin is in the same kingdom.


  • Start of turn:
    • With low health:
"This is grim..."
  • Otherwise:
"For honor!"
  • Start of battle:
    • When attacking a castle:
"For all my beloved Pokémon!"
  • When defending a castle:
"Our army will stand and fight!"
  • During battle:
  • When ordering to attack:
"<Move's name>! Now!'"
  • Upon forming a link:
"<Pokémon's name> and I are now linked through our love of the just and the good."
  • When using an item:
"You must use my <item>."
  • When using his Warrior Skill:
"Know the true meaning of honor!"
  • After winning a battle:
"Behold! This is a victory for truth and honor!"
  • When defeated:
    • If recruited:
"We have fought tooth and nail, but I sense we could one day become allies."
  • Otherwise:
"Honor cannot be defeated. It must not be!"
  • When being recruited:
"Let us journey together toward the truth!"


Warmhearted and very dutiful, he will always attempt to punish anyone he feels has been unjust, in a bid to show them the true path.

Historical origin

Kanetsugu is based on the real-life Naoe Kanetsugu of Japanese history. He was married to Sen (Osen no kata).
