"You're not..."
"Watch your mouth in front of Lord Hideyoshi, Hanbei."
  • At the end of The Reluctant Genius:
"...I was born with this face."
"Are you sure about this, Hanbei?"
"Simply to work hard until we achieve our objective. If we can collect one hundred Pokémon, Lord Hideyoshi will be pleased."
  • At the end of The Visionary's Quest:
"Hanbei... Why did you let me be Warlord...?"

Historical origin

Hanbei is based on the real-life Kuroda Yoshitaka of Japanese history, who was also known by the name "Kanbei" (官兵衛). He was an expert tactician and one of Totoyomi Hideyoshi's strategists.
