All of the samurai shown thus far have been seen wearing heavy plate-armor akin to traditional samurai. They also wear helmets with face masks. Like real samurai, they are armed with katana. However, the number of blades worn by a single warrior is unusual, going as high as four. It is currently unknown how they individually utilize such an abnormal number of swords.
Madara Uchiha, Hashirama Senju, and Tobirama Senju wore samurai like armor in the past, despite being ninja.
Despite being samurai, the warriors shown have worn their swords edge-down (like shinobi) instead of edge-up, as was customary for real Samurai.
Earlier in the series, Gato had two Samurai bodyguards, Zori and Waraji, in his employ. Whether they were originally from the Land of Iron, or were taught by another organization, is debatable.
The helmets of the other two samurai are similar to the real world Stahlhelm helmets worn by German forces during WWI and WWII.
According to the Tsuchikage, no shinobi would attempt to challenge the military of the Land of Iron.
