Daku Akuma Taisho were samurai commanders that would lead their kachi and gashira samurai straight into the lines of the enemy. Once the ashigaru engaged their foe in the traditional manner, the Taisho and their Gashira would break ranks, storming through the lines, catching their enemy off guard. Through this “surprise attack” and superior fighting skills given to them by the Daku Akuma (dark demon), they would cut their way through the opposing ashigaru. This would cause them to divide and then easily swallowed up by the darkness of the pursuing ashigaru. They were also known for taunting enemy samurai in battle. The objective was to draw them out in single combat where their ashigaru could cut them off from support while the Daku Akuma Gashira and Taisho samurai would finish them off. This was part of the new fighting tactic samurai started to be used in the early 16th century.
