* AnyoneCanDie: Being based on a history of warfare, it's inevitable that some characters bite the dust throughout the timeline, which spans roughly 79 years. In fact, in the aftermath of the final chronological battle of the series (Wei conquest of Shu), only Deng Ai, Ding Feng, Jia Chong, Jiang Wei, Liu Shan, Sima Zhao, Wang Yuanji, Wen Yang, and Zhong Hui survive, and out of all of them, only Jia Chong and Wen Yang live to see China united after the Jin conquest of Wu (which isn't portrayed in the series).

Added DiffLines:

* GoingThroughTheMotions: ''Dynasty Warriors 9'' ditches the character portraits and the still pictures of the characters' emotions and replaces them with the limited animated character portraits that are similar to ''VideoGame/{{Starcraft}}''. The conversation cutscenes also have the characters standing still while talking with stock hand gestures.

* TwentyFourHourArmor: Until ''9'', all of the playable characters, particularly the ones with armor, still wear the same clothes even during downtime cutscenes except in the death scenes where some of the characters who are ill and dying in their beds wear white robes. In ''9'', the playable characters get to wear casual outfits which have different styles and variation of [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hanfu the Han clothing]]. This also brought some surprising reveal on what some of the characters looked like without their helmets.

** ''9'' takes the crown for this ever since it introduces the [[WideOpenSandbox open world aspect]] where the player can freely explore the whole of China and appreciate its beautiful scenery. The developer even put a lot of effort on the prominent cities and landmarks such as the Great Wall of China.

* ArtifactTitle: The Japanese title ("''Shin Sangoku Musou''") can be seen as one, particularly the further the series gets from its EarlyInstallmentWeirdness FightingGame origins as every new game makes the "you-vs.-everyone" model of the ''Shin Sangoku Musou'' games (and really any game bearing the "''Musou''" name, to the point it's basically the name of the genre) the "true"[[note]]The "Shin" in "''Shin Sangoku Musou'''"[[/note]] face of the series.

** The Jin faction introduced in ''7'' is basically Wei ruled by the Sima family instead of the Cao[=/=]Xiahou clan. This is because the plot is over before the kingdom is able to change its name. Logically, this means that the two factions can be grouped together and have the same continuity; Jin's first stage in ''8'' is even the Battle of Wuzhang Plains, which is the stage Wei's story mode in earlier games ends with. Some characters also end up crossover into each other, like Sima Yi, who was a part of Wei before ''7''.

Some characters also end up crossover into each other, like Sima Yi, who was a part of Wei before ''7''. Only Jia Chong and Wen Yang are counted as Jin officers since they live long enough to see the rise of Sima Yan as the first Emperor of Jin and the reunification of China after the Jin conquest of Wu. Wang Yuanji and Xin Xianying could also considered to be part of Jin as they were both alive to see Sima Yan' ascension with the former being bestowed as the empress dowager.
