Takeda is a Clan in Nioh.
The Takeda clan controlled the lands around Kai province (today's Yamanashi prefecture). Famous clan leaders include Takeda Shingen and Takeda Katsuyori.
Shingen was a master tactician known as the "Tiger of Kai" who expanded the clan's holding through skilful use of their superior forces. He conceived of the Seijo Strategy to neutralise Oda Nobunaga but died of illness before it could be completed. His son Katsuyori took up the mantle, but the clan was obliterated by Nobunaga's revolutionary use of firearms.
The family crest is known as the "Takeda-bishi" ("Takeda Diamond") and is shared by all Takeda families across the country who claim the Kai Genji as their ancestors. There is also a version known as the "Flower Diamond" in which the diamond is made up of four petals.
