''VideoGame/WarriorsOrochi'' is a spin-off crossover of ''Dynasty Warriors'' with ''VideoGame/SamuraiWarriors'', while ''VideoGame/DynastyWarriorsGundam'' [[XMeetsY combines the formula with]]... [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin well]], Franchise/{{Gundam}}s. Meanwhile, ''VideoGame/BladestormTheHundredYearsWar'' transposes the action to UsefulNotes/TheHundredYearsWar and takes players to the battlefields in medieval France, as well as giving the player a whole squad to do the incredible feats with, instead of one man, but is otherwise the same. There's also a game (and a sequel) based on ''Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar'' called ''VideoGame/FistOfTheNorthStarKensRage''. There's also ''VideoGame/WarriorsLegendsOfTroy'', based on the Trojan War. There is also a ''OnePiece'' game called ''VideoGame/OnePiecePirateWarriors'', which got two sequels. Aside from anime-based spinoffs, there's also a game based on ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' called ''VideoGame/HyruleWarriors'' as well as a game based on ''DragonQuest'' called ''[[DragonQuestHeroesTheWorldTreesWoeAndTheBlightBelow Dragon Quest Heroes]]'' and a game based on ''Manga/TheHeroicLegendOfArslan'' called ''Arslan: the Warriors of Legend''. There is also an [[VideoGame/DynastyWarriorsOnline online spinoff]].

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The very first entry in the series was a PS1 fighting game. Justified in that the Japanese version of said fighting game is not considered to be part of the series. The original game was titled "Sangokumusou," and localized in North America as "Dynasty Warriors." A spinoff of that game was released in Japan as "Shin Sangokumusou," but was localized as "Dynasty Warriors 2" due to the characters being essentially the same ones as in the fighting game. The sequel to "Shin Sangokumusou" was "Shin Sangokumusou 2," which was localized as "Dynsasty Warriors 3," leading to an ongoing discrepancy in numbers between the Japanese and overseas releases.

Added DiffLines:

** 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.

** You can rain a hail of death on a crowd of soldiers, or race into said crowd with flaming swords flailing, but miraculously your allies will emerge unscathed. [[ItsUpToYou Not that it really matters, of course...]]

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. The games also feature lots of hammy voice acting, which is either very funny or very annoying... or sometimes both. This may make you want to plug your ears, but then you wouldn't be able to hear the game's cool Chinese-Techno-Rock Guitar soundtrack.

* BookEnds:
** In''7'', the first campaign you're likely to play is Wei, since it's the first selected. The last one is Jin, which is essentially Wei under a different name and ruler. Not only that, but the last battle for Jin has "[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin The Last Battle]]" as its theme, which contains a section of Crush 'Em All, the theme from the first battle in Wei.

* {{Leitmotif}}: Lu Bu has always had his own theme(which also served as the game's theme up until ''7''), ''7'' and ''8'' give multiple themes to each faction.

** A egregiously annoying example in ''2'' is for an enemy Officer that you're currently fighting to recover some or all of their health instantaneously, despite the fact that you've whittled them down to a tiny sliver of health.
