Hitoe is a character in the Ganbare Goemon series. She is Yae's older sister, a feared ninja pirate who sails the Edo seas in search of treasure. She appeared in the Nintendo DS game Ganbare Goemon: Tōkai Dōchū Ōedo Tengu ri Kaeshi no Maki.


Hitoe is Yae's older sister and is known under the alias of the "Patchy-eyed Ninja of Oedo". When Hitoe turned six years old, her eye got wrapped in a cast and after a year she started wearing her now characteristic eyepatch. Both sisters are well skilled in several forms of martial arts, such as karate, judo, taekwondo, kung fu, and jujitsu, which they learned at the Oedo Dojo.

Goemon and his friends became part of Hitoe's pirate crew the day they met her, under the promise of living adventures and finding treasure. Sasuke became her first mate, having the task of locating where a pirate booty was hidden. A group of rival pirates tried to board the ship but in the end they were subdued and made to walk the plank.

Her pirate ship's name is called the "S.S. Hitoe".

Appearance and personalityEdit

Hitoe is a female ninja pirate who wears an eyepatch on her right eye. She speaks with the stereotypical dialect of buccaneers, frequently saying words like "arrgh!" and "matey", and is fond of singing pirate songs, especially at night. Her main weapons are a sword and a pirate pistol.

She sails her ship in search of treasure along the Edo bay in order to find islands to plunder. In addition, she carries all paraphernalia associated with pirates in her ship, like spy glasses, pirate hats, jolly rogers, different kinds of hooks, eyepatches, and swords; not to mention she has been seen constructing miniature ships inside of bottles sometimes. All these treasures accumulated throughout the years have made Hitoe very rich.

She is a master of ninja pirate combat and was able to defeat Admiral Peruri and his monsters. After this victory, she along with her sister performed an unique pirate dance which Yae loves.
