The games epitomize the HackAndSlash genre, although many of them have [[UnexpectedGameplayChange special levels and "modes" of gameplay]], which allow single and multi-player duels between characters, as well as special "Challenge Modes", which allow the player to select a character and have them perform feats of strength and skill (although most of these are just an extra excuse to mash buttons). The gameplay follows a simple format: allow the player to choose a character, then plop them onto a large battlefield facing waves of enemies. The player then uses button combos and special techniques to decimate armies of {{mooks}} in the most stylish ways possible as they complete mission objectives to turn the tide of the battle in their favor. There's also the occasional titular [[LimitBreak Musou attacks]], which act as cinematic attack animations that are effectively screen-nukers.

The Musou attack is an automated and cinematic attack animations sequence, that are effectively screen-nukers.
function as screen-nukers. All of the games have some form or variant of the Musou attack present, though different games may call it a different term.

* SpectacleFighter: One of the more glaring examples of this among modern games. It's not enough to just swing a sword, that's far too normal. You have to swing it in the most flamboyant way possible, while sending out petals of cherry blossoms to attack your enemies. These games are all about style.

Added DiffLines:

* CowardlyMooks: The games and its numerous spin-offs often employ this through a MoraleMechanic. Defeating area leaders causes the surrounding troops to instantly lose all their morale and start fleeing from battle.
