In The Legend of Ransei, Mitsuhide is one of Nobunaga's top generals, and one of the last people the Hero/Heroine needs to defeat to challenge Nobunaga himself. His junior Warlord is his daughter, Gracia.
In Mitsuhide's story, Tragic Determination, he rebels against his master, deciding that Nobunaga has strayed too far off his path of uniting Ransei. Hearing from Ranmaru of Mitsuhide's betrayal, Nobunaga challenges Mitsuhide, daring him to defeat the entirety of his army before three years pass. Upon doing so, Nobunaga admits defeat, and asks Mitsuhide to do what he could not.

Mitsuhide is based on the real-life Akechi Mitsuhide of Japanese history, best known for his betrayal of Nobunaga. His wife was Hiroko (Tsumaki Hiroko), his children were Hidemitsu (Akechi Hidemitsu) and Gracia, and Mitsutada (Akechi Mitsutada) was his cousin. Toshimitsu (Saitō Toshimitsu), once a retainer for Ittetsu (Inaba Yoshimichi), defected to Mitsuhide to serve as his retainer. It is unknown if Mitsuhide died in the aftermath of the Battle of Yamazaki, and he is rumored to have become Tenkai (a Buddhist monk), who served Ieyasu. However, the game treats Mitsuhide and Tenkai as two separate characters.
