The Akai Oni Samurai were elite Kachi samurai. They were guided into battle by their Gashira Akai Oni Samurai leaders. These elite samurai were chosen for the honor and heroism. Their armor was painted a crimson suna or vermilion which gave them the name “Akai Oni” (Red Demon). After winning many battles, the elite warriors of the Takeda Clan grew in notoriety and number. They are remembered as one of the most famous and powerful warriors of Feudal Japan.
