Shimada Kanbei
Kanbei (spelled Kambei in the film) is the leader of the samurai and the first that the peasants managed to hire. In the film, he shaved his head and dressed as a monk in order to save a young child that was being held hostage. In the anime, though the circumstances were similar, he keeps his ridiculously full head of hair. He is known to be brave, wise, and hardened by war. Kambei is one of the three surviving samurai at the end of both the film and the anime.
