Hanbei (Japanese: ハンベエ) is a Warlord in Pokémon Conquest.

He, along with Kanbei, is one of Hideyoshi's personal advisors and junior Warlords. Despite his appearance, Hanbei is the older of the two.

Spoiler warning: this article may contain major plot or ending details.

Hanbei and Kanbei do not appear at all during The Legend of Ransei, making their first appearance during Hideyoshi's story: Happily Ever After. With their help, Hideyoshi eventually brings Ransei together as one peaceful nation.

In Hanbei's story, The Reluctant Genius, Hideyoshi chooses Hanbei to represent Ignis. He is also in Kanbei's army at the beginning of Kanbei's story; The Visionary's Quest.

Due to link caps, and most evolutions triggering on stat thresholds, certain Pokémon linked to this Warrior require high IVs to evolve.

Evolution eligibility in this table assumes the following:

  •   Max Energy multiplier of 1.1× applied to stats.
  • The full range of 0-31 IVs is considered. (Default Pokémon have 15 IVs in every stat, while wild Pokémon can have 0-31 IVs)

Notes:

  • Passwords can bypass normal availability checks in any story.
  • Pokémon marked with an asterisk (*) next to their password eligibility require an unofficial password.
  • "Direct link" means linking to that exact Pokémon in the wild, as opposed to evolving a previous form of it.

"Hey, I thought so! Yeah, you look pretty good like that!"
"Why?! Why did this happen? Well guess we've no choice but to get 'em back! C'mon, <Pokémon's name>!"
  • When a rare Pokémon appears in a kingdom:
"This could be a good chance, you know! Well, there's no harm in trying, anyway."
  • When the player's army has conquered 10 kingdoms:
"Wow, <player>'s army's sure got bigger... Big enough to stamp out, I'd say!"

  • When mining:
    • When about to mine:
"Okay! Let's get cracking!"
  • When successful in mining:
"Nice!"
"Yup!"
"Hey, good one!"
  • When unsuccessful in mining:
"Aargh..."
"Aw, Kanbei... You're always such a downer..."
"Lord Hideyoshi... Isn't that...?"
"Eh? Me?"
"Oh, my lord... Can't you just let me sleep? I really can't be bothered with this, Kanbei. Let's get it over with as soon as possible..."
"Hehe. Didn't you hear him, Kanbei? I'm the Warlord of this kingdom now. He should be the one who watches his mouth in front of me!"
"It was nothing. That's just the way I—(cough) (cough cough cough)..."
"No. It's nothing. Just something in my throat."
"Don't make that face, Kanbei. You should be happy for me."
"You're not wrong! And your kids will probably look like that as well, Kanbei!"
"To be honest, being a Warlord is such a pain. Why don't you do it, Kanbei? In fact, I'm older than you, so it's my decision! From now on, you're the Warlord around here!"
"Hm? Yeah, of course. It's all yours, Kanbei. So, what are your orders, Lord Kanbei?"
"Oh! Aiming a little high, aren't we? All right, let's do this!"
"Three cheers for Lord Kanbei! You did it, my lord. Looks like we work well together, eh? Two geniuses are pretty tough to stop."
"Hey, now... I don't want to talk about that. I just wanted to see what you were really capable of, Lord Kanbei! I wanted to see you...smile!"
"What? Come on, man! There are times when it's all right to smile, you know! Times like this!"
"You're just way too uptight, Lord Kanbei! But I guess you're not going to change. Okay, what's our next mission...?"

Trivia

  • Hanbei has the lowest Power of any Warlord. This is likely a reference to his historical counterpart having tuberculosis, an illness that killed him midway through his life. He is also alluded to be sick during the end of his story, The Reluctant Genius.

Historical origin

Hanbei is based on the real-life Takenaka Shigeharu of Japanese history, who was also known by the name "Hanbei" (半兵衛). He was an expert tactician who successfully executed an uprising against the Saitō clan. Toyotomi Hideyoshi was so impressed by Shigeharu's strategy, he invited him to join his army as a strategist.
