Ikemen Sengoku Wiki

"Don't lie. I know you like it when I tease you."

Mitsuhide Akechi (明智 光秀, Akechi Mitsuhide) is a warlord in Ikémen Sengoku, and is currently available to be chosen for romance in both the Japanese and English apps. He is voiced by Shunsuke Takeuchi.


Mitsuhide is often seen wearing his uniform, consisting of blue, teal, gold and white accents. He has white hair which appears grey when shadowed, and has "piercing" golden eyes. He's often seen with a smile, although it's described as being sharp and thin.


Mitsuhide is outwardly extremely suspicious, unworthy of trust and seemingly malicious toward others. He's repeatedly referred to as being similar to a snake, and is called one by several of the warlords, as well as the heroine. It's implied that he's disloyal toward Nobunaga.

However, he's shown himself to be completely loyal to him and simply eccentric in his ways. He's also a tease and thoroughly enjoys teasing both the warlords and the heroine, but underneath, he truly cares for them all. He'll also help the heroine in various routes, and will sometimes help assist her with matters relating to her chosen warlord.


Mitsuhide is the third warlord encountered by the heroine. She saves Nobunaga from an attack that, in her timeline, was orchestrated by Mitsuhide, but it was not him when she arrived in the Sengoku Era. He later arrived after Mitsunari and shortly before Hideyoshi, and was questioned by the latter about his whereabouts, since he had not been told that Mitsuhide was in Kyoto at the time. Mitsuhide would not answer this question.

After your arrival in Azuchi, two things become clear about Mitsuhide: he is so good at reading people, he seems to read your mind and, despite many efforts, nobody (not even his own allies) seem capable of figuring him out. He is kind to you, but all kinds of rumors fly about him, and word in Azuchi is that Mitsuhide puts the women who fall for him through "hell itself".

Despite his obvious dishonesty, you remain eager to figure him out, and do not stop being as honest and genuine towards him as he is teasing and dishonest to you.


Mitsuhide was a powerful and influential general and, for some time, retainer to Nobunaga in the late 16th century. He was the first of Nobunaga's subordinates to receive a castle, and was heavily trusted by him.

However, in 1582, Mitsuhide was supposed to assist Hideyoshi in marching west against the Mori clan, but ignored his orders and instead amassed an army of 13,000 soldiers, heading for Honno-ji, where Nobunaga was. He is supposed to have said, "The enemy is at Honno-ji!" on the 21st of June, and then he and his arm attacked Honno-ji, setting it on fire. Nobunaga died in the conflict, although how is unknown, and his son was also surrounded and killed after fleeing. Mitsuhide's reasons for this are unknown, despite there being several theories, but claimed responsibility for Nobunaga's death regardless.

Mitsuhide died en route to Sakamoto 13 days after declaring himself Shogun, although who killed him is disputed.
