  • His Warrior Skill (One-Eyed Dragon) and the title of his story (The Dragon's Dream) come from his historical nickname: the One-eyed Dragon (独眼竜).

Historical origin

Masamune is based on the real-life Date Masamune of Japanese history. Yoshi was his mother and Iroha was his daughter. Kagetsuna, Tsunamoto, and Shigezane were three of his most faithful retainers, the latter also his cousin. Munetoki and Tsunenaga were also retainers. Munezane served both Masamune's father (Date Terumune, who is not in the game) and Shigezane.
