SenBasa chara Nouhime.png
  • Max HP: 31400
  • Weapon: Twin pistols
  • Attribute: Fire
  • Unlock: From start

Nouhime (Lady Butterfly in Devil Kings) is the elegant wife of the villainous Demon King, Nobunaga Oda. Like her husband, she wields firearms in battle, as well as making use of a variety of kicks. However, despite her undying love for Nobunaga, the contrast between them is clear, as she has the mannerisms of a princess and is much more merciful, especially with children. Still, she would do anything to please Nobunaga, making her one of his most unconditionally loyal commanders.

Nouhime has the largest reach of all playable characters, with the ability to shoot enemies out of the sky. She also has an exceptional movement speed, but her attack power, defense power, and physical strength are all below average. A normal Square button attack is a simple gunshot from each pistol and has a slow recovery time, which can be canceled by jumping or using the BASARA skill. Nouhime's lackluster normal attacks can be remedied with the Passing of the Dragonfly skill, which allows her to perform normal attacks while on the move. A normal attack can also be useful as a follow-up to Leap of the Sweetfish, before Nouhime shoots.

Roar of the Serpent and Awakening of the Butterfly are useful in taking out surrounding enemies, a feat not easily accomplished with a long-range weapon, and can also form high combos.
