Kagetsura (影連, Kagetsura) is a character from Sengoku 3. His name means "accompanying shadow".
Kagetsura is the leader to the band of ninjas that set out to destroy the Dark Emperor. He was appointed to the position after his brother had defected from their clan. He tried to stop Byakki but ended up losing his right eye during their struggle. He hopes to find his brother again and make amends. Himself, and his brother, are also said to be the descendant of Hanzo, from the samurai spirits/showdown series.
Serious, dedicated, and loyal to a fault. Although he was ordered to kill his brother, he forgives his betrayal and allows him to live.
Aside from these powers, he also has all the skills perceived to be had by ninja (stealth, swimming, climbing, etc). He, like the rest of the characters from his game, also has the power to replace himself with a wooden dummy if he is wounded.
- Electrokinesis: Through the use of ninjutsu, Kagetsura can run an electric current through his body and command lightning. It enables him to infuse his attacks with electricity or create a mini lightning storm.
- Izuna Drop: Like Hanzo, Kagetsura can grab his enemies and jump to incredible heights. He'll piledrive his opponent to the ground moments later.
He uses a stylized sword fighting technique and lightning attacks. He is considered to be the most balanced of the six possible heroes and the most user-friendly for beginners.
