Sadakatsu Murai is one of the retainers of the Oda clan. Despite his long servitude to his lord Nobunaga, he would eventually meet his fated end at Honnoji, along with other Oda vassals.

Role in GamesEdit

In Samurai Warriors 2, he is one of the Oda vassals who did not go with Hideyoshi Hashiba but instead stayed with Nobunaga at Honnoji. He is one of the obstacles Mitsuhide has to face before attacking Nobunaga and is killed along with other vassals. In the Oda scenario, he is a struggling generic near Nijo castle with others and, if rescued, will head towards Nobutada to protect him. In the Akechi version, he is simply stationed near Nijo castle. In the Xtreme Legends expansion, he appears as an enemy in Motochika's gaiden version of Shikoku near Nobunaga and his main camp. He makes a solitary appearance at Honnoji in Samurai Warriors 3 to defend Nobunaga and dies.

Historical InformationEdit

Murai Sadakatsu was born in 1547 in the Azuchi-Momoyama timeline. At the start of his army career, he joined the Oda army. In 1573, he was given chief administration of Kyoto by Nobunaga. When Mitsuhide rebelled against the Oda clan in 1582, Sadakatsu heard of the news and readied the defenses. Despite these difficulties for the rebels, Sadakatsu's life was cut short in an instant and he quickly died in the Honnoji carnage.
