Ikko Ikki?

Anyone else notice they seem to have their own Ashigaru troops as well as religion? I don't know if they have different stats or if its just a name, but they also have some warrior monk hooded people mixed in their groups (probably just for looks)

What's the deal with these people?

They are disaffected commoners who rebel against their oppressive samurai rulers, mostly following Pure Land Buddhism.

They're militant and fanatical warrior monks that terrorized local samurai and populace and lived in greed and avarice. The Oda, Kitabatake, Uesugi and Asakura clans all struggled to deal with the Ikko-Ikki in their domains, and the Ishiyama-Honganji Temple fortress in Settsu was one of the most indomitable strongholds in the land(the site would later be built upon to make Osaka Castle.) Nobunaga personally suffered the deaths of about seven brothers and uncles to the Ikko-Ikki, particularly the Nagashima monto, and held a ten-year-long siege to try and defeat the Honganji Ikko-Ikki at Ishiyama-Honganji.
