Nouhime is the villainess wife of Oda Nobunaga in Sengoku BASARA series. Like her spouse, she uses firearms in battle.
The beautiful and elegant Lady Nōhime is a pleasant sight among the devil-like Oda army. She's been brought up as a princess, apparently: her mannerism and way of speaking reflect this. The other defining trait she holds is her undying love for the Demon King, Oda Nobunaga. Nouhime holds dear memories of her father, Saitou Dousan; she invokes him many times when entering the fray, or falling into a pinch. Nevertheless, her loyalty and attachment to Nobunaga (the man who crushed the Saitou clan) are absolute. In Sengoku Basara 2, hearing news about Nobunaga's supposed death sent her on a "death marathon" towards the Honnoji temple, a feat almost unbelievable for a woman that hates war so much. She has a soft spot for children in general: Mori Ranmaru is like a son to her, and she finds it extremely difficult to defeat Itsuki. In the game, the character she seems to fear (and hate) most is Takeda Shingen, of course because he's a great enemy of the Oda, but also because the destiny he brought upon Uesugi Kenshin and his kunoichi, Kasuga. She's in a very good relationship with the Maeda, who are all very protective and fond of her. It is hinted in her ending in Sengoku BASARA 2 that she is pregnant with Nobunaga's child.
She was confirmed dead in Sengoku BASARA 3. She was killed along with Oda Nobunaga and Mori Ranmaru in Honnoji temple backstory.
