Hinata finds himself in an awkward position as a Samurai. Despite being in a class known for fast and powerful attacks, Hinata’s Speed is very low compared to Hana and Ryoma. Rather than attempt to force him into the Swordmaster mold, and thus risk getting outclassed by Ryoma especially, Hinata’s bulk and health make him more well-suited to being a Master of Arms or anything related to Oni Savage.

Similar to Rinkah, Hinata performs well as a tank that can scout out an area before your more fragile units, and then perform the age old bait-and-lure trick. Just be aware that he does not fall into the same specialized niche as Hana or Ryoma, and will perform beautifully if allowed to make full use of his bulkiness.
