Minamoto no Yoshitsune (源義経?), named Ushiwakamaru (牛若丸?) in his childhood, is a general from the Minamoto clan and half-brother of the shogun Minamoto no Yoritomo. He is a skilled, agile swordsman and laughs often. In the waterfall stage of Samurai-Ghost, he descends as Ushiwakamaru playing the flute before changing shape on screen. Yoshitsune appears as a boss in the games Genpei Tōma Den, Samurai-Ghost, Namco Super Wars and Namco × Capcom.
In Namco × Capcom, Yoshitsune and other members from the Minamoto clan revived because of the fluxes. He is voiced by Kazunobu Chiba.
