"Villages far from the safety of our castle still need protection. But how can our armies protect the people when we samurai are so few? Nobushi: elegant, aggressive fighters with the lightest of armors and the most exotic of weapons: the naginata. They seem hardly battle ready, but looks, in this case, are profoundly deceiving. They keep our wilds safe and we don't even know who they are."

Nobushi are a playable hero class in For Honor.


The defenders of the villages too far from the Imperial City for the army to reach. They are elegant fighters with a curious weapon. They have the lightest armor that allows them to move like the wind but cannot take a lot of damage. But don’t let their appearance fool you, they are one of the most effective fighters the Samurai have. [1]


The nobushi appears to be mostly wearing leather with a gray knee-length coat on top. They possess two small sode on their shoulders. They wear a mouthless noh mask and jingasa hat.


Naginata - The naginata is a long weapon consisting of a wooden shaft topped with a curved blade. It is an extremely versatile weapon in the hands of a trained warrior and can be used to stab, bash, or hook enemies.
Nobushi weapon



  • The Nobushi's description matches that of the Onna-bugeisha, female samurai whose task was often to protect her household and village during the times of war, and whose weapon of choice was the naginata.
  • While naginata were used by all samurai, they were most often associated with women, as the extended length effectively make up for the general lack of strength when fighting katana-armed male opponents.
  • They also bear some resemblance to the Sohei: Japanese warrior monks who dressed in white kimonos and fought with Naginata.
  • Nobushi roughly translates into English as "Wild Warrior".
  • In the campaign, the Nobushi in the Samurai chapter is named "Momiji" which may be a Ninja Gaiden reference as the character "Momiji" from Ninja Gaiden also wields a Naginata.


  • Japanese: 其方に死を (Sonata ni shi wo) - English: "I give you death!"
    • Bleeding light finisher
  • Japanese: 推して参る (Oshite mairu) - English: "Here we go!"
    • Cobra strike
