・Asahina Yoshihide (朝比奈 義秀), was a Japanese warrior of the early 13th century, and the son of Wada Yoshimori (和田義盛) who was a gokenin of the Kamakura shogunate and the first director (bettō) of the Samurai-dokoro. His father proposed Wada Gassen and Asahina was the most remarkable warrior of that battle. Though very likely a historical figure, Yoshihide appears in literature and in kabuki as a somewhat superhuman legendary character.
