Tsuruhime is a heroine in the Sengoku BASARA video game series. She first appeared in Sengoku BASARA: Samurai Heroes as one of the playable characters.
Tsuruhime is a sweet yet naive young archer and oracle, sheltered by the people of Kouno who sought to protect her as well as her power. It is because of this that she has little knowledge of the world and the people in it. But she not only has trouble with identifying which animal is which, she is also capable of being easily manipulated.
Warriors often seek her out for readings of their futures through her gift as the Oracle, in which she performs a ritualistic dance followed by shooting one of her arrows into the sky to receive a vision. However, she greatly values her homeland sea and will risk her life protecting it from whomever she deems as a threat.
She is also humorously infatuated with Kotaro.
- Because of their weapon similarities, Tsuruhime is mistaken for Ranmaru by Oichi at one point. This is shocking to her because she had believed him to be dead, by her own hand.
- In the cutscene that occurs after completing Oichi's stage in Samurai Heroes, it is implied that Tsuruhime is the only surviving member of her family.
