Tokugawa Ieyasu is one of the characters in the anime Battle Girls:Time Paradox .She is a warrior who specializes in Dark Magic. Ieyasu is first displayed as a caring girl who is obedient and well mannered to her seniors, however she is later shown to have a much darker side. She is the retainer of Imagawa Yoshimoto whom she calls 'onee-chan'
Ieyasu made her debut in the episode Sky Maiden (the third episode of the series) where she and her retainer Yoshimoto were challenged by Oda Nobunaga after Yoshimoto refused to give her or Ieyasu's parts.This caused a huge uproar for Oda Nobunaga and she arranged a competition between her team and Yoshimoto's. Both sides battled againist each other in different sports such as Sumo Wrestling, Beachball and Karate, however the competitions always ended in equal ties therefore a last sports competition was held known as Kite Flying.She and Hideyoshi where made to float on kites whilst Yoshimoto and Nobunaga manouvered them. A variety of different tactics where used in order to improve the competitors chance of winning and eventually Ieyasu's kite which carried a bomb exploded first followed by Hideyoshi's who had a bomb set off by Yoshimoto yet again this resulted in a tie between the two teams however Yoshimoto finally surrended and happily declared Nobunaga the victor of the battle therefore causing Nobunaga to earn her first parts of the Crimson Armour.Ever since the first battle againist Team Nobunaga, Ieyasu has put on a attitude of innocence and goodness towards her seniors which causes the other characters to think her obviously very unlikely to plot against them (although she does).
Ieyasu appeared in several other episodes where she and the other warriors decided to go hunting for meat using her falcon, however her most prominent roles were seen in the last three episodes of the series in her attempt to own and rule Japan using the Crimson Armour. Eventually she was defeated and turned to being kind and innocent again and is seen to have grown an attachment (probably fallen in love) with Nobunaga in episode 12, she wants to a friendship with Nobunaga much to the dislike of Akechi Mitsuhide.
Personality and AppearanceEdit
Ieyasu is first seen as an obedient, quiet, respectful and beautiful girl which leads her to recieve attention from Nobunaga.Yoshimoto sees her as a harmless little sister and Hideyoshi tries to befriend her after mistaking her for one of her school friends named Tokunyan. However she is later shown to be cunning and clever and is one of the warriors alongside Date Masamune who wants to steal the Crimson Armour which she eventually does in episode 10 of the anime. She causes the other characters a lot of surprise towards the end of the anime luckily she is eventually defeated and returns to her nice personality, she tries to also form a closer friendship to Nobunaga leading to more jealousy from Mitsuhide. Ieyasu also has a number of obedient ninjas by the name of Hanzo who rather clumsily try and help her but contuinously end up failing their orders. She compliments her Hanzo warriors in twelfth episode but she tells them not to take it seriously.
Tokunyan wears her lustrious pink hair in a large ponytail she wears purple battle armour such as a corset top, a belt, large puffy trousers and authentic Japanese sandals. In battle she uses Priestess Staff. In episode 7 of the anime she briefly wears a Pink Kimono.

She is voiced by Satomi Akesaka in the anime.
She is named after the warrior Tokugawa Ieyasu who managed to out-live all the prominent men of his time.
