  Oda Nobunaga - THEMWiki
Nobunaga's rise to glory, however, began in 1560, when the 25000-man army of neighboring warlord Imagawa Yoshimoto was caught flat-footed in a drunken stupor during a thunderstorm by Nobunaga's force of 3000 at the Battle of Okehazama, and Imagawa himself had the rotten luck of losing his head (literally).
Nobunaga was known in his day to be a bit of a showoff, wearing western plate mail into battle, and displaying European items acquired in his numerous dealings with Catholic clergy.
Oda Nobunaga is understandably an extremely popular historical reference, but he is often portrayed as a Western-influenced demon in manga, anime, and video games.

 Oda Nobuhide - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Oda Nobuhide (織田 信秀 Oda Nobuhide 1510 – April 21, 1551) was a warlord and magistrate of lower Owari Province during the Sengoku Period of Japan.
Though the head of the Oda clan, Nobuhide never fully united Owari Province but was involved in open warfare as he was fronted to the north by Saito Dosan, daimyo of Mino province, and to the east by Imagawa Yoshimoto, the daimyo of Mikawa, Suruga, and Totomi provinces.
Nobunaga, who hardly even knew his father and already had a bad reputation as a deliquent, arrived inappropriately dressed at Nobuhide's funeral and threw incense at the altar of the temple as he cursed his fate.

 Oda Nobunaga
   Oda Nobunaga (1534-1582) was the first individual to attempt to unify Japan at the end of the Warring States period; his ultimate goal, though he never realized it, was to bring all of Japan "under a single sword" (tenka-fubu).
   Perhaps one of Oda's most significant contributions to Japanese history, outside of laying the groundwork for the future unification of the country, was his eager embrace of Westerners.
   Oda never succeeded in unifying the country; just as he was on the verge of success, he was assassinated by two of his generals at the age of forty-eight.

Oda Nobunaga put his Generals at castles that were crucial to the entire defense system of his provinces, and relatives at those that were not so much in need of real warriors.
Oda Nobunaga's individualism was also manifested in the fact that he never had any such a thing as an advisor; there was no longer an Advisory Board in the Oda clan after the one Nobunaga got from his daddy's days lost the members by the inevitable call of old age.

Nobunaga reportedly responded in a surprisingly cooperative manner, that is, until he heard of Takeda Shingen's untimely demise, at which point he felt free enough to put Kyoto to the torch.
All told, Nobunaga's life was indeed a reflection of his impossibly complicated place and time given that the elements of clan strife, deceit, and warfare, economic growth and political change, and the use of recent innovations were common to those who lived during the 16th century.
