Nobunaga (Japanese: ノブナガ) is a Warlord in Pokémon Conquest.
In the games
Nobunaga is seen much like a villain for most of the The Legend of Ransei, having the ambition to take over the entirety of Ransei. The Hero/Heroine first meets Nobunaga in person after joining forces with Shingen and Kenshin. It is here that Nobunaga reveals his intentions to conquer Ransei, and that Nobunaga is Oichi's brother. Oichi tries to learn more about her brother's intentions but fails, and Nobunaga leaves.
After conquering all of Nobunaga's territories, the Hero/Heroine challenges Nobunaga himself at Dragnor castle, where Nobunaga calls upon his Zekrom to battle. The Hero/Heroine is successful, but Nobunaga escapes. After the Hero/Heroine links with Arceus, Nobunaga returns, calling upon his Black Rayquaza and his closest allies in a final bid to stop the Hero/Heroine.
After accepting defeat, Nobunaga reveals the real reason he desired to conquer Ransei. The Warlord had truly loved the region, as well as the people and Pokémon that lived there. However, as the battles to see who would conquer Ransei raged, Nobunaga had begun to notice that Warriors were starting to treat their Pokémon partners as nothing but mere tools. Believing the legend of Arceus to be nothing more than a fairy tale, Nobunaga partnered with Zekrom to conquer Ransei and put an end to the ceaseless battles.

Nobunaga is based on the real-life Oda Nobunaga of Japanese history. Nō was his wife, Kitsuno was his concubine, Oichi was his sister, and Urakusai was his brother. Gotoku and Tsuru were his daughters, as possibly was Toku. Ujisato was his son-in-law through his daughter, Fuyuhime (who is not in the game), and Tomonori was related by marriage through Nobunaga's son (Oda Nobukatsu) and Tomonori's daughter (neither of whom are in the game).
Yoshitaka, Masahide, Nagahide, Narimasa, Murashige, and Kazumasu were some of his officers. Rikyū was a tea master of Nobunaga's, while Urakusai was Rikyū's student. Yoshiaki was the puppet shogun Nobunaga set up. Mitsuhide, Ranmaru, and Hideyoshi were also samurai who served in Nobunaga's army (before betraying him, following him in death, and succeeding him, respectively).
