Nobunaga (ノブナガ) is the lord of the OOO Army (オーズ軍 Ōzu Gun), that greatly resembles Akira Date. He was killed alongside a portion of Kamen Rider Bujin Gaim's Greeed army when he traps them inside a collapsing HON-NOHJI castle that was set ablaze. Before he died, he evacuated Ranmaru safely and threw Kaito a Taka Core Medal, which was later combined with a premature Lockseed and was converted into the OOO Lockseed for Baron to access OOO Arms.
Behind the scenes
Oda Nobunaga (織田 信長 June 23, 1534 – June 21, 1582) was a powerful samurai daimyo and warlord of Japan in the late 16th century who initiated the unification of Japan near the end of the Warring States period. He lived a life of continuous military conquest, eventually conquering a third of Japan before his death in a 1582 coup. His successors were Toyotomi Hideyoshi, a loyal Oda supporter who would become the first man to unify all of Japan and was thus the first ruler of the whole country since the Ōnin War, and later Tokugawa Ieyasu, who would consolidate his rule under a shogunate, which ruled Japan until the Meiji Restoration in 1868.
- The OOO Warlord being associated with Nobunaga may be in reference to another Nobunaga (a Homoculus Cell Medal clone) who was chronologically the first on-screen user of the Birth system. Akira Date, the representation of this Nobunaga, was actually the third on-screen Birth. (due to the eventual Birth, Shintaro Goto, likewise using it prior to Date's premiere).
