For his story of expansion, Hideyoshi began as a simple general under Nobunaga, first as a vassal in Inabayama Castle. Providing a plan for Nobunaga, he was ridiculed by other Oda vassals and ridiculed by Oichi, but Nobunaga allowed him to build a castle in Sunomata and signal when Mino Trio raged inside the castle. Once Mino is under the rule of Nobunaga under the defeat of Yobitaga, the Oda army will continue to conquer Echizen. At the moment he faced the victory of Asakura, Azai suddenly betrayed Nobunaga and forced the invaders to retreat. When their lords fled, Hideyoshi volunteered to prepare for the defender. When Magoichi asked him why, Hideyoshi admitted that he hoped to be promoted under Nobunaga so that he could one day do something great for the people. He asked Magoichi to help him achieve his vision and the mercenary agreed. After they defeated the forces of Nagamasa and Yoshikage together, they safely retreated back to the capital together. Years later, Nobunaga decided to smash the Red Anji thugs and the Seca traitors and headed to Sakai, where Magoichi waited for them.

Killing Magoichi, many Oda officers and Nobunaga mark the end of his dream of universal happiness.
Hideyoshi stopped attacking at Sakai, he insisted on letting his friends surrender to prevent the Holocaust. After his failure, Magoichi gave up Hideyoshi's wish and joined his friend's side again. When Nobunaga was killed in the Instinct Temple, Hideyoshi hurriedly intercepted Mitsuhide's army in Yamazaki. His troops appeared before the arrival of Mitsuhide, so they used time to defeat Toshimitsu Saitō and declared Mount Tenno. Avenging his lord, Hideyoshi unified the land and became the supreme ruler. However, Ieyasu despises him and rebels at Komaki-Nagakute. With the help of Magoichi and Keiji, Hideyoshi defeated his opponent. He asked Ieyasu to surrender and the land was calm.
