Shingen Shidou (紫堂信玄) is a character in the anime and manga series Battle Spirits Burning Soul.

"Devour my soul! Then become a rampaging power to destroy all! Show yourself... Demon of isolation! I summon... The SengokuSixGeneral Mudou!"

"Let's fight! Mudou... Now, I give ye my soul! My soul is rampaging! Rampage, Mudou! In exchange for this soul... All that stands in my way will be devoured! I activate Soul Drive!"


He is a large and muscular young man with dark skin and a purple demon face tattoo on his left shoulder. Both of his forearms are covered in decorative white bandage wrapping that extends from his elbow to his lower palm. He has brown eyes and two-toned red hair. He wears on his head a two horned oni-shaped headdress with yellow eyes on it. He also wears a purple vest-like haori with yellow linings and white rope-like rings around the arms, matching thigh armor, baggy white pants with a purple triangular mountain formation on the bottom of the pants, and his deck is strapped to his arm.


Shingen is stubborn and independent. He refused to enter the national tournament at first because he didn't want teammates who had to rely on him.

He likes to talk about life and death.


Shingen is a S-Class purple card battler, who is famous in Kai. He is called The Demon of War. Many of the locals hoped that he would enter the national tournament, and make their town known.

Toshiie Homura, who needed a third teammate for the tournament, tracked Shingen down to recruit him. Shingen quickly refused, however, and crossed a bridge to leave. When Toshi followed after, he proceeded to destroy the bridge, but Toshi made it to the other side. Shingen was impressed, and considered Toshi strong and reliable enough to team up with.

His first match in the Warring States Championship was against Dousan, a green user. Shingen was able to win, using the Soul Drive effect on his ultimate.

Afterwards, his's team made it past the preliminaries and entered the first official round of the championships. Their team was matched against the team representing the Kyuushuu-Okinawa area. Shingen battled against unknown battler and won.

During the quarterfinals, Shingen was matched up against Toukichirou Mashira easily in the second round.

Back in the Warring States Championship, Shingen has to face Yukimura Rekka in the quarterfinals. Shingen believed that Yukimura wasn't a worthy enough opponent and what Toshi could see in Yukimura that made him want to battle Yukimura so much. However, after seeing Yukimura's determination, he lost, and he finally realized why Toshi saw Yukimura as a worthy foe.
