Samanosuke Akechi, later, also known under the name of Tenkai Nankobo, is the main exemplar of the first and third of the series Onimusha: Warlords Onimusha: for PlayStation 2, Xbox and Windows, and Onimusha 3: Demon Siege for PlayStation 2 and Windows. It also appears as a small character in the fourth game playable Onimusha: Dawn of Dreams, and as one of the combatants in Onimusha: Blade Warriors, both the PlayStation 2. He is inspired by the historical figure, Akechi Mitsuhide.

Samanosuke was born in 1535, during the Sengoku period of Japan. Warlords was a samurai Samanosuke in service Saito clan of Mino province. A struggle for leadership of the clan (references first match ever in the fight between Saito Dosan Saito and his son Yoshitatsu) prior to the events of Onimusha: Warlords Samanosuke was separated from the clan and traveling the world, becoming a ronin. During these trips, he met and support the female ninja Kaede, who became his companion and confidant. Over the next four years. On his return around somewhere in 1571 (months after the events of Onimusha 2) Samanosuke and Kaede back to help his uncle, Akechi Mitsuhide, in absolute secrecy. For the next 12 years,  Samanosuke and Kaede travel around Japan, wherever you find them kill Genma.

Samanosuke is   in the film opening the game on a cliff overlooking the Okehazama battle in 1560. In a reference to the Nobunaga Ambition series of video games, the battle ends with Oda Nobunaga was shot through the fauces, on the eve of his victory. The opening scenes of the game are going to illustrate that it is a year later and that Samanosuke has came back to Japan to accept the request of Princess Yuki Saito Dosan daughter. In its letter to him, expressing the fear of strange events that take place at home, Gifu Castle and Samanosuke advocates to “save”. He answers, but it is too late to stop two demon ninjas kidnap her. The opening film closes with a shot of a live and well Nobunaga apparently sitting on a fierce war horse at the head of a large army.

Samanosuke is  with the ninja outside the castle and fends them off, but her encounter with Princess Yuki is short as Osric, a very large red demon wielding a big stick, springs from the ground. The combat between the two is of short duration, and Yuki is  by the devil as Samanosuke loses apprehension while unconscious, Samanosuke is  in a vacuum by Oni clan spirits (this translated as “ogre” in Game, and later as “Oni” for the rest of the series). They will give their power in the form of a magical glove, which enables Samanosuke to absorb the souls of fallen demons and equip different weapons charged with elemental energy, task to defeat the demons.

As Samanosuke adventure through the castle and its surroundings, discovers a plot by General Kinoshita Tokichirou Nobunaga (the game says that this man becomes Toyotomi Hideyoshi later in life) and Guildenstern use scientific demon Princess Yuki as a sacrifice for a ritual dark to give the resurrected Nobunaga incalculable power.
