Sayuri (小百合) also known as Jasmine (ジャスミン) is playable character from the Senran Kagura series that makes her debut in Senran Kagura: Estival Versus.
Asuka's grandmother and the wife of the legendary shinobi, Hanzō, Sayuri is a very powerful shinobi in her own right – a former Kagura, in fact. As far as Asuka knows, Sayuri is essentially retired now and rarely leaves the house. In secret, however, Sayuri has been preparing for a great supernatural event, where she plans to put Asuka and her friends through an all-new kind of training. In battle, Sayuri wields her wooden pipe, wind-based Ninja Arts, and intense tongue lashings.
When Sayuri executes her Shinobi Transformation, she temporarily becomes Jasmine, her younger self. Without the ravages of age to hold her back, Jasmine is laser-focused on her mission and can tear through almost any opponent with ease. But youth can't last forever, and every time Sayuri forces it to last a bit longer, she pays a price. When it comes to blows, Jasmine swings a mean pipe, and can also summon the power of extradimensional elephants.
- Sayuri's name means "Lily", while her youth name comes from "Jasmine tea" or rather from the genus of plants Jasmine.
- Jasmine is the only character in the series to have her name written in Katakana.
