Minamoto is an infantry hero in Age of Empires II. He is available in the Scenario Editor and also appears in the Kurikara scenario in Age of Empires II HD: The Forgotten, where he becomes available once the player captures the Monument from the enemy. He is based on Minamoto no Yoritomo (源 頼朝), the founder and first shogun of the Kamakura Shogunate.
In the game, he has the appearance of a Samurai. Like other infantry, Minamoto is affected by all upgrades that affect infantry as well as any other bonuses that affect them. As a hero, he cannot be converted and can regenerate health (since The Conquerors).
