General Munetsugu Takeno was the leader of the Eiganjo samurai forces of daimyo Takeshi Konda on the plane of Kamigawa. He was present during the ritual of Konda's crime. Before and after, he served Konda faithfully and without any questions.


When the Kami War reached its climax, Takeno was already an old man with aching bones. He scarcely left Eiganjo, leaving the field leadership to the younger generals.

When O-Kagachi attacked Eiganjo, Takeno refused to abandon his lord. When it was apparent that the castle was going to be destroyed, Takeno demanded an explanation for Konda's actions. When O-Kagachi broke the wall of Konda's inner chamber, Takeno leapt in the way of huge flying sliver of rock that was about to impale Konda. Impaled himself, he fell with the rock hunk to the yard below.

After Toshiro Umezawa stole the Taken One, O-Kagachi disappeared. Konda found himself left among debris and dead bodies. However, the Eiganjo soldiers that died fighting O-Kagachi were recreated in spirit form, Takeno included. The spirit-Takeno had a hypertrophied sword-arm, fused with his katana. Along with the rest of the spirit army, the spirit-Takeno ceased to exist when O-Kagachi was destroyed by the Sisters of Flesh and Spirit.
