* LateArrivalSpoiler: ''Pirate Warriors 3'' spoils the fact that Sabo is alive and has eaten the Flame Flame Fruit right on its cover art. In terms of some of the coins and missions, it also subtly spoils the fact that [[spoiler:Law is a D]].

** One cutscene in the final Legend Log level doesn't outright reveal, but strongly hints at the fact that [[spoiler:Doflamingo is a former World Noble]]. When questioned by Law about it, Doffy merely dismisses it as a much more complicated story than Law thinks, and the story moves on.

** Because the Dressrosa arc was still ongoing by the time the third game was released, said arc especially suffers from this. Elements like Doflamingo's crew, the Riku royal family, the Corrida Colosseum gladiators and the toys and dwarves all get the shaft, and only Doflamingo, the Straw Hats, Law and [[spoiler:Sabo and Fujitora]] remain. The arc isn't even followed faithfully like the others, but instead given an alternate ending.

* DemotedToExtra: Vivi and Shanks, despite their importance to the story and potentially bringing unique fighting styles to the series, are not playable. [[spoiler:Until the third game, where Shanks ''was'' made playable, though Vivi is still MIA.]]

** The third game has Hancock's damaged 3D2Y outfit, Law, Robin and Nami's Dressrosa outfits, [[spoiler: Strong World Shanks]], pre-TimeSkip Perona, Tashigi [[spoiler:as she appeared after her FreakyFridayFlip with Smoker]], [[spoiler:Sabo as Lucy]] and Nami in her wedding dress from Thriller Bark all available as regular DLC, and Luffy's fish disguise from the Dressrosa arc as a pre-order bonus.

* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters: Not so much in the first game, which only included 13 playable characters (The Straw Hats, Ace, Jinbei, Hancock and Whitebeard), but the second game added ''15'' more characters to the roster[[note]]Buggy, the Admirals, the post-TimeSkip Straw Hats, Smoker, Mihawk, Perona, Marco, Kuma, Crocodile, two versions of Blackbeard, Law, Garp, and Enel[[/note]], and the third game added ten more characters on top of that.[[note]]Tashigi, Moria, Fujitora, Doflamingo, Caesar Clown, [[spoiler:Sabo, Shanks]], Ivankov, Magellan and Rob Lucci.[[/note]]

** In the main manga, Luffy suffers a severe mental breakdown after Ace dies, and has to be escorted out while his allies continue to fight. The corresponding episode in ''Pirate Warriors 3'' likewise ends as soon as Akainu is defeated if you're playing as Luffy. If you're playing as anyone else, the episode continues, and Luffy and Ace are simply removed from the battlefield.



** This also applies to Franky: his attacks are slow and he needs to refuel on cola every now and then, but he hits hard, and has a decent range.

* FatalFlaw: In Pirate Warriors 2, [[GameplayAndStoryIntegration just like in the main series]], Sanji is completely helpless against female characters. The game even warns the player when the level has women in it. This means that Sanji can't do any damage to them and the only way for him to hurt them is to perform a Crew Strike Combo and get someone else to do the job.

** Luffy is immune to Hancock's Mero Mero Mellow, just like in the main series. Chopper and Fujitora are also immune, because of the former being simply uninterested in females in general and the latter being blind, and thus not knowing what Hancock looks like.

Added DiffLines:

* FireBreathingDiner: One of the effects of the candies Caesar Clown can throw at enemies to incapacitate them (The other is making them grow huge and start dancing with joy).
* FlashStep: Some of Tashigi's attacks have her moving so fast that she disappears from view. It's convenient, as it makes such attacks harder to interrupt.


Added DiffLines:

* SadBattleMusic: In the third game, the music turns sad and somber after Ace dies, and remains that way until the battle with Teach.

** The third game mostly averts this, as it goes out of its way to cover the entire manga, but still relegates some "minor" arcs to cutscenes, like Amazon Lily.

In the sequels, some costumes for characters are unlocked automatically after beating certain episodes, while others need to be bought from the Beli Shop.



* BlindIdiotTranslation: The sequel has several instances. The dialog is correct, for the most part (even remanizing each character's dinstictive laugh correctly), but system messages like mission objectives appear to have been done by translating the strings piecemeal without checking how they fit together, resulting in readable-but-garbled messions like "Support Nami Until The Labratory Entrance".

* GameplayAndStoryIntegration:
** Sanji will, just like in the main series, refuse to fight female characters, to the point that the game warns you ahead of time if you try to select him in a battle that features female enemies.
** For a minor example, Tashigi's taunt has her lift her glasses; this turns the background slightly blurry to reference the fact that she's BlindWithoutEm.



* LightningBruiser: Luffy, Zoro, Sanji, Ace - all extremely fast, fairly durable, and strong.

* OffModel: The sizes of some of the characters are very off based on their official manga stats. Whitebeard is ''far'' too short while Doflamingo is far too tall, seeing as how Whitebeard should be around 5-8 feet taller than the 10 foot tall Mingo based on their manga comparisons to Aokiji and Akainu (who are the same height); yet Doflamingo towers over him and everybody else. Blackbeard was also dramatically shortened; he's actually a foot ''taller'' than Doflamingo according to the manga, but here he's barely even taller than Luffy!



* OneManArmy: The playable characters, as per ''Dynasty Warriors'' tradition. Many of them are one-man armies in the manga itself, but this game especially allows their status as such to shine.
** Whitebeard specifically has a move called "One Man Army".

To say nothing of the Marks of characters such as Sabo and Marco...

* AdaptationalBadass: ''Everyone.'' As in, characters (such as Nami, who is powerful but comparatively weak in comparison to the rest of the cast) that would realistically have very little chance of beating up powerful characters such as Logia and Haki users are perfectly capable of doing so in this.

* GameBreaker: ''Fujitora'' in Pirate Warriors 3, full stop. His unique action (which has unlimited uses) is severely overpowered compared to every other character's; he can call down meteors that create an explosion, and they get bigger the longer you charge the button. Well, the 3rd level meteor has enough power to ''completely'' fill both your Kizuna Gauge and you special attack gauge, kill an entire territories-worth of mooks, and one-shots most bosses under level 60. This in turn means you can then spam your Kizuna rush and special attacks endlessly because his unique action just about always gives him a full bar. Equip Fujitora with the "quick charge +" perk and you really don't have to use his combos at all.
** Also, Fujitora's attacks in general are ''very'' fast for his size and they cover a massive range of area.

** From the third game, the fastest characters (and arguably the best, since any character can have their strength stat maxed out, but only certain characters have superior speed and combo capability as well) include the above four, Mihawk, Enel, Shanks, Tashigi, Rob Lucci, Marco, Doflamingo, and Sabo.

** An odd case of it was when they translate "Okama", the japanese word for "transvestite" as "Oh come my way". Maybe they don't want to use the english term but, there is still New Kama island in some of the games and that makes Mr.2's utilisation of "Okama Kenpo" as "Oh Come My Way Karate" as a really odd choice.
