The games feature a colorful cast of characters, most of whom are part of the storyline's three main warring factions, the Kingdoms of Wei, Wu, and Shu. There are also a few other characters thrown in, including the unsavory usurper Dong Zhuo and his [[EvilMinions Evil Minion]] UsefulNotes/LuBu, the greatest [[BadAss Badass]] in all of Ancient China.

Added DiffLines:

* ArtEvolution: From 2 to 5, most characters had gradual changes with each game, while a few had more near complete redesigns. 6, being a soft-reboot of sorts, had the characters' visuals overhauled, from the exaggerated versions of their old outfits to completely new looks, all of which looked outlandish. The backlash from 6 led to 7 returning to the older style of 2-5, and the designs from 6 that were kept were redesigned to match the old style. Also, with the more prominent presense of the "second-generation" characters in 7 and 8, most of the younger(-looking) "first-gen" were made to look slightly older.

''Dynasty Warriors'' (''真・三國無双 Shin Sangoku Musou'' [[note]]Literally ''True -- Three Kingdoms Unmatched''[[/note]] in Japanese) is a series of HackandSlash action games produced by Creator/{{Koei}}. The games' storylines are loosely based on the ''Literature/RomanceOfTheThreeKingdoms'', which covers one of the most turbulent eras of ancient Chinese history (and the basis for [[VideoGame/RomanceoftheThreeKingdoms Koei's popular series of hard strategy games of the same name]]).

Added DiffLines:

* BadassNormal: The unplayable characters in ''2'', ranging from the very minor Officers to even the lowly Sergeants and Bowmen, can surprisingly hold their own against the odds when you mod the game with cheat codes to enable them as selectable.

** A notable case of this happens in the first PSP game, where unlike in previous installments, the AI will NEVER use their strafing motion in order to bypass walls in front of the like in prior games, and will keep running into it (but at the same time are much more aggressive).
** On the other side we have the allies, they can be completely random depending on what the Level asks of them; ranging from being actually competent to the point you can let them do their own thing to being unbelievably stupid to the point you wonder if the developers are trying make you scream insults at the screen. ''[=DW8=]'' is a great example of both sides of the coin, in regards to how stupid the allies can be, just pick any Level with Star Missions, if the Star requirement is a certain characterís survival, you better pick the character that must live, if you can select it, otherwise it is guaranteed the AI will rush to its death, if you canít select the character, better select the character who will be close to the person in need of protection, because the AI canít be trusted as a bodyguard; worse yet are generic officers in need of escorting in order to convince an enemy officer to defect, you are pretty much obligated to clean the trajectory out of enemies as fast as possible because the officers being escorted have a pathological need to butt heads with an enemy they come across at random instead of rushing to their objective[[note]]It would understandable if they were surrounded and were pretty much unable to advance, but no, they feel the need to attack ''the one lonely soldier'' who is just as stupid as them.[[/note]], coupled with the fact they are very fragile and require extensive babysitting.

* AdaptationalHeroism: Of course there's a lot in the Shu team, but after ''7'', they actually did this to Huang Hao, the corrupt eunuch that influenced Liu Shan and make him take poor decisions. In this game, because he's unplayable and the story reaches to Jin's storyline, Huang Hao instead is just a generic 'advisor' guy who will gladly fight in Shu's defense, and in ''8's'' Ambition Mode, when talked with Liu Shan, he did not show any signs of being a corrupt asshole.

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 stlyish 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.
