Let us go to the real battle, Tadakatsu.

Ieyasu Tokugawa to Tadakatsu Honda pre-battle

Tadakatsu Honda is a general of the Eastern Army, working under the Eastern Army's leader Ieyasu Tokugawa as his vassal. He is one of the strangest of the playable generals, considering his size and stature as a giant robot. Tadakatsu has something of a rivalry with Yoshihiro Shimazu, one which has been going on for quite some time. In his Ultimate Samurai Challenge route, (a route which only he and Yoshihiro have access to), Tadakatsu can choose to challenge participating generals (including his lifelong rival) to earn the title of Japan's strongest samurai. As a fighter, Tadakatsu is slow but powerful; his dash alone is enough to hurt enemy soldiers. His Super Arts are, to fit in with his robotic nature, modes which he can activate; this includes a mode which gives him the ability to fly across the battlefield and a mode which allows him to fire cannons from his back.
