Daku Akuma Gashira were samurai infantry that would march within the lines of their ashigaru and then charge out into the enemy lines once the battle began. Through their superior fighting skills given to them by the Daku Akuma (dark demon), they would cut their way through the opposing ashigaru, causing them to divide and be swallowed up by the darkness. They would then swarm the battlefield, swallowing column after column of enemy ashigaru, leaving the horrible remains of the black death in their wake. Legends say that they would taunt the enemy samurai in battle, increasing their anger and likelihood for making mistakes. The desired result was to draw them into direct battle while their ashigarus cut them off from support. Finally, the Daku Akuma Gashira samurai would wade into the conflict and finish them off.
