Yukimura Sanada (Scorpio in Devil Kings) is the main character of Sengoku Basara alongside Masamune Date. Yukimura is a key commander of Shingen Takeda's forces with a strong will to fight and undying loyalty for his master. As opposed to his cool and collected rival, Masamune Date, Yukimura makes many emotional decisions and is quick to act on his temper. However, Yukimura is also much more respectful than his rival, portraying the image of a more conventional warrior. He also frowns upon the use of tricks in battle, preferring to fight "honorably" in contrast to his clever ninja subordinate, Sasuke Sarutobi.

Yukimura, like Masamune, is one of the more basic playable characters. His use of dual spears makes for a fairly standard battle, although flames are incorporated into some of his skills. His first skill, Inferno, is perhaps one of his most useful, consisting of continuous jabs forward that increase in number with multiple presses of Triangle button. This skill is particularly effective when fighting larger enemies such as Squad Leaders or Tadakatsu. For crowd control, Great Wheel and Crimson Lotus Kick are more effective. Blazing Fire Wheel is another especially useful skill, as it can be used in situations consisting of large crowds due to its ability to burn all surrounding enemies with its range and when facing more powerful enemies due to its ability to easily increase hit number (again, with multiple presses of Triangle button).

An easily repeatable combo for Yukimura is an Square button string followed by Great Wheel, which may also be followed by a jumping Triangle button. This is then followed by a skill switch to Blazing Fire Wheel.
