- "I will serve the Tokugawa as my father did, but in my own way."
- ―Hattori Masanari.[src]
Hattori Masanari (1565 – 3 June 1615) was the son of Hattori Hanzō, a vassal for Tokugawa Ieyasu and a member of the Assassin Brotherhood in Japan. Like his father, Masanari was a gifted warrior, and after Hanzō's death in 1596, Masanari succeeded his father as a retainer of the Tokugawa. His lethal skills in battle eventually saw him appointed the Captain of the Edo Castle guard.
However, Masanari wasn't as capable a leader as he was a warrior, and this led to him losing his position as Captain. Determined to salvage the reputation of himself and the Hattori clan, Masanari fought valiantly at the Siege of Osaka in 1615, but didn't survive.
