Mori Takakage, later Kobayakawa Takakage, was an admiral of the Allied Fleet who opposed the Oda Clan attack on the Ikko-Ikki. Serving at the Battle of Kizugawaguchi (in TWS2, unknown historically), he was defeated by the mighty O Ataka Bune ships.
Kobayakawa Takakage (小早川 隆景, 1533 – July 26, 1597) was a samurai retainer of Toyotomi Hideyoshi during Japan's Sengoku Jidai, and the son of Mori Motonari. Adopted by the head of the Kobayakawa Clan, Takakage took his name, and succeeded his adoptive father to become head of the Kobayakawa clan following his death in 1545.
As head of the Kobayakawa clan, he expanded the clan's territory in the Chugoku Region (western Honshu), and fought for the Mori Clan in all their campaigns; for a time, he also opposed both the great warlords Oda Nobunaga and Toyotomi Hideyoshi. He later swore loyalty to Hideyoshi, however, and entered his service; he was then awarded domains in Iyo Province on Shikoku and Chikuzen Province on Kyushu, totalling 350,000 koku.
Takakage took part in Hideyoshi's invasions of Shikoku, Kyushu, and Korea, and adopted Kobayakawa Hideaki, formerly an adopted son of Hideyoshi, and named him successor to the clan.
