- "You know what, <Pokémon's name>... Win too convincingly, and you start to grow careless... Everything in moderation—that's my motto."
- "<Move>! Right now!"
- When using his Warrior Skill:
- "See what you make of this one..."
- "We've gone and won again."
- At the start of The Way of the Warrior:
- "So I told them."
- "The other Warlords, the ones at that gathering... I told them that my lad Yukimura is the very best there is... And that they would all soon see what you're capable of!"
- "Now, make sure you don't let me down, Yukimura. Or else I'm going to look very stupid."
- "Yes, yes... That's the spirit. Okay then, whenever you're ready..."
- At the end of The Way of the Warrior:
- "You did it, Yukimura. I knew you would."
- "Haha! That's the Yukimura I know! But for once, I would like it if you could celebrate your success."
Lively and mischievous, his self-confidence knows no bounds. Kenshin's lifelong rival.
Shingen is based on the real-life Takeda Shingen of Japanese history. He and Kenshin were honorable rivals of one another. Nobushige (Takeda Nobushige) was his younger brother and Katsuyori (Takeda Katsuyori) was his son. Nobutsuna (Sanada Nobutsuna), Masatoyo (Naitō Masatoyo), and Masakage (Yamagata Masakage) were some of his twenty-four generals. Masanobu (Kōsaka Masanobu), Masatoshi (Hoshina Masatoshi), and Yukitaka (Sanada Yukitaka) were three revered warriors also serving him, known as his three Danjōchū (Japanese: 弾正忠). Chiyome (Mochizuki Chiyome) was said to be left in his care on occasion; she is apparently who Kunoichi is based on.
