The Hourai stratagem involves creating walls of soldiers to the left, right, and rear of the enemy commander, so as to entrap them. This is followed by a surgical strike straight down the centre to take out the enemy's head. Normally it is utilised in grand, large scale battles.
This strategy was first used by Shou Hei Kun to entrap the Duke of Juuteki. Shou Hei Kun planned to do it with just two walls set up. Not an ideal situation but they will have to treat the battle behind the Duke as the third wall. However Ka Ryo Ten realised what Shou Hei Kun was planning and reforms the battlelines to create the last wall.

- Requires making walls of soldiers on the left, right, and rear of the enemy.

- The enemy commander can make a risky attempt to escape by charging forwards into the front and mingle into allied forces that are in the front if they can get past the enemy charge.
