Yukiden - Motochika.jpg

Motochika Chōsokabe is one of the major characters in Sengoku BASARA video game series.


Chosokabe Motochika is portrayed as a mostly purple-clad, muscular man with spiky white hair and a large eyepatch covering his left eye. The sleeves of his extremely short purple coat, which covers his shoulders and upper back, are left unworn, Motochika instead preferring to just leave them flapping around in the wind. Much of his chest is left uncovered, save for two thick straps that criss-cross against his torso, and a large collar that covers most of his neck.

Rather than conquering lands, Motochika prefers to explore through the islands and search for treasures. But he is also cares a great deal about his underlings, and his crew and he share a very strong bond. His crew call him big brother, as a gesture of respect and companionship. He, in turn, refers to the whole of his crew as "mateys." His bond with his crew is especially clear throughout the series' second anime adaptation, Judge End, where he initially allies himself with Ishida Mitsunari in order to get revenge against Tokugawa Ieyasu, whom he believed killed off his entire crew.

When Motochika is a pirate leader, and the lord of the island Shikoku. He is strongly opposed to anyone who tries to conquer his lands, and has earned himself the nickname "The Demon of Shikoku" through his feats in battle. He also has a rather fierce rivalry with Mōri Motonari, and partnership with Mori Ranmaru, Tokugawa Ieyasu (once he was still in Oda army).

After Toyotomi Hideyoshi, the conqueror of the land, was killed by Tokugawa Ieyasu, Shikoku was seemingly attacked by the latter. Ieyasu's supposed army successfully conquered the island, and Motochika had to flee. However, Motonari advised Motochika to join forces with Ishida Mitsunari, who was out for revenge against Ieyasu. Motochika took this advice and joined with Mitsunari in order to avenge his fallen comrades. However, he later found that it was actually Mori Motonari who had instigated the attack against Shikoku.


  • Oddly, in Devil Kings, Motochika speaks with something of a mixture between a Scottish and Irish accent.
