He also rides a floating palanquin, again, to covey across his illness and his historical counter part. His palanquin isn't the only thing that mysteriously floats, as he uses several magical orbs to attack his foes. The orbs can grow in size, as seen in his Basara, and have a wide attack radius.
Yoshitsugu is depicted as one of the more tragic characters of the series, and his misguided ambitions come across as "evil". Because of his disease, he was constantly ridiculed and shunned. Seeing the great battle of Sekigahara as a way to take his revenge and share his misfortune with the world, he takes up his weapon and joins up with Mitsunari, leader of the Western army, for the approaching campaigns for the land.
Role in Super Smash Sisters
Yoshitsugu Otani is one of the non-playable of Super Smash Sisters. Because of his illness, he rides his palenquin wherever he goes. He will also use his magical orbs to attack his foes. Sometimes, when the minor girls make a bad comment about his bandages and his nearly covered face, Yoshitsugu will threaten to strangle them.
