Ōzeimono (大勢物)

Tachishū is the word used when multiple similar characters such as troops, aristocracy or followers appear on stage, and ōzeimono refers to plays that include tachishū. The ōzeimono of Noh include Youchisoga Jūbangiri, Ataka and Settai, and there are also ōzeimono in which the wakikata appears, such as Rashōmon. The ōzeimono of kyōgen include Chigiriki, Higeyagura, Muko and Tōzumō (Tōjinzumō). In Tōzumō nearly 40 performers appear on stage to sumo wrestle, making it the play with the most performers in both Noh and kyōgen.
