The Menpo is a promotional miscellaneous item for the Soldier and Demoman. It is a fearsome black samurai mask with team-colored details on the chin and the bridge of the nose with the mask strap and other decorative elements fashioned out of cord.

It has four styles which add various facial details. The "Yuurei" style has team-colored striping running on both sides of the face from the nose to the cheekbone. The "Obake" style adds a blood splotch on the left cheek. The "Youkai" style is the plainest with no additional decoration. The "Azukiarai" style adds a false mustache.

This item was awarded in Genuine quality to players who purchased the Total War Master Collection, Total War: Shogun 2, or Total War: Shogun 2 - Fall of the Samurai on Steam before October 1, 2012.
