Gifuu Doudou!!: Kanetsugu to Keiji - Komatsuhime - Netflix
In her role in the video game Samurai Warriors, Komatsuhime goes by her childhood name, Ina. She wields a long bladed bow, and can attack in melee combat and also at range. She is depicted as a proud daughter of Honda Tadakatsu, and that she would make her Lord and her Father proud as well. She also has a strong tomboyish tendency, where she may rather be fighting than be a regular woman. In the first installment, she is friends with Kunoichi. Additionally, in the game, she is charged with one of Hattori Hanzo's accomplishment during Ieyasu's journey in Iga: escorting Anayama Nobukimi, while Hanzo escorts the lord personally. Historically, Hanzō took both tasks at once and succeeded them both. Inahime is in the spinoff of Samurai Warriors called Samurai Warriors Katana on the Nintendo Wii. Ina also appears in the crossover game Warriors Orochi. In it, she befriends Sun Shang Xiang after Orochi blackmails the Tokugawa and the Wu Army into servitude. Although both of them are forced to fight for Orochi against their will, they end up joining the Resistance after Ina convinces Sun Shang Xiang to reunite with her older brother Sun Ce at Sekigahara. In Warriors Orochi 2, Shu is joined by the Tokugawa clan, Hattori Hanzo, Shang Xiang, Honda Tadakatsu, and Inahime. Inahime and Xing Cai become friends, and they rescue Hosokawa Gracia and her father, Akechi Mitsuhide. In Dream Mode, Inahime works with Huang Zhong and Xiahou Yuan in fire ambushing an enemy coalition led by Date Masamune. She is a playable character as Ina in Pokémon Conquest (Pokémon + Nobunaga's Ambition in Japan), with her partner Pokémon being Prinplup and later Empoleon.
