And even after all those supposed 'GrandFinale', it didn't stop Koei from churning out yet another iteration, in the same vein of ''Musou Orochi Z'', called ''Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate''. It features a continuation of the story revolving around a new powerful villain and was released in Japan for [=PS3=] and PS Vita in 2013. A remastered version for the PS4 and XBoxOne followed in 2014. Aside from adding Seimei Abe, Rachel, Shennong and Momiji from the other expansions, they also put in Xu Shu, who made his debut in [=DW7=] Empires, and new collaboration characters in the form of ''VideoGame/DeadOrAlive'' main star Kasumi, who made her ''VideoGame/NinjaGaiden'' debut in ''VideoGame/NinjaGaiden 3: Razor's Edge'', an ''Franchise/{{Atelier}}'' rep, in the form of Sterkenburg from '' [[VideoGame/AtelierRoronaTheAlchemistOfArland Atelier Rorona]]'' and [[ActionMom Sophitia]] not from Koei-Tecmo, but from ''The VideoGame/SoulSeries''. The expansion also adds new original mystical characters: Tamamo, a figure from Japanese mythology and the new main villain, Yinglong, a proud warrior from the mystic realm, Kyūbi, a malevolent fox spirit and [[spoiler: OneWingedAngel of Tamamo]], and [[SecretCharacter Hundun]], a demon considered the source of all chaos. An earlier incarnation of Nezha, which depicts him as he appears prior to the events of Warriors Orochi 3, also appears as a seperate character.

Added DiffLines:

* BoringButPractical: In gauntlet mode, equipping every weapon with slay and wind elements can be a must at later stages. At first it's not so bad, and good stats will let you take out enemies even in high miasma, however in later stages enemies can become so tough even a character with a 999 attack stat will only deal ScratchDamage to high miasma enemies. Wind and slay get around that, although there are rare enemy types that can half the power of the elements, by dealing % damage or instant death. This is downright overkill in story mode, even at chaos difficulty, but in Gauntlet mode, it's necessary once you get further in.

Added DiffLines:

* TheComputerIsACheatingBastard: Another Warriors game to have this trope. While the main games display this from time to time, Ultimate's Gauntlet Mode can sometimes take the cake on higher difficulty stages. In Gauntlet Mode there are unique "formation skills" that can take many forms, from elemental attacks to random buffs, that the player can use. Specific officers can also use a specific one as an enemy, such as Xu Zhu always having the skill that causes ContactDamage when activated. That part is fair. The unfair part is they can spam both formation skills and musou in ways the player cannot. Gantlet mode uses a modified version of the team-up bar from 3's story mode to power the formation skills, however the enemy, if it's feeling cruel, can spam up to 4 uses of a skill that costs 2/3s of the bar to use for the player. They can also chain musou attacks together, an action that is impossible for the player to do without abusing the game due to the fact that no character can pull off a mousou attack without a full musou bar, otherwise the character will charge up when you try. [[note]] It is possible to replicate this for burst style musou attacks by having triple thrift ''and'' The focus belt, as the focus belt will recover the single point of musou that get's used up due to triple thrift, but what you can't replicate the sustain style musou that computers do, once you enter, it has to run out before you can go again, and it's impossible to recover your musou before you've even had a chance to attack.

However, in the second game, known as ''Warriors Orochi 2'' (or ''Musou Orochi: Maou Sairin'' or lit. Unmatched Orochi: Demon King Advent in Japan), Da Ji escaped and summoned another relic from the past: Kiyomori Taira from the Kamakura era, whom she converted into a follower of Orochi. Kiyomori went back to the ancient lands and freed [[Literature/JourneyToTheWest Sun Wukong]] from Buddha's imprisonment, thereby gaining his services. At the same time, Da Ji convinced the mystical queen of Japan, Himiko, to [[MoreThanMindControl befriend her]]. Together, they set their sights on reviving Orochi. The gods (mostly Chinese), however, decided to take more active stances, and thus the mystic Taigong Wang (who happens to be Da Ji's nemesis from the ''Literature/FengshenYanyi'' epic), as well as the gods Fu Xi and Nuwa (who have undergone a serious case of redesign since ''VideoGame/DynastyWarriors 3'') split up and aid the mortal warriors from the Three Kingdoms and Sengoku era. Other than them, another figure, Kiyomori's legendary rival Yoshitsune Minamoto, also arrives in the twisted era to hunt down his worst enemy...

* AwesomeButImpractical: Many moves can become this, but the most notable example are, surprisingly [[BigBad Orochi]] himself. Almost all of his moves are non-elemental, deals small damage, has awkward coverage, and is unsafe in general. The only thing that saves makes him the PurposefullyOverpowered character that he is intended to be are his C1-1.

There is also a ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration'' style expansion called ''Musou Orochi Z'', for the Sony Playstation 3 and PC, which features more extra costumes, additional scenarios as well as a combination of being able to play both the first and second games' storylines. There are also new characters, including a {{Gender Flip}}ped Sanzang from the ''Literature/JourneyToTheWest'', and Yoshitsune's buddy Benkei. Alas, also in the vein of minor expansion packs, ''Musou Orochi Z'' has been deemed [[NoExportForYou unworthy of being brought over the pond]]. A crumb of comfort, though, is that all of the new goodies made for ''Musou Orochi Z'' has been brought over to the [[UpdatedRerelease PSP port]] of ''Warriors Orochi 2''.

* GenderFlip: Sanzang. This may be a nod to Saiyuki, a Tactical RPG produced by Koei for the {{Playstation}} where you could choose the gender of Sanzang.

* GuestFighter: Since ''3'', they started introducing characters outside the both ''Samurai/Dynasty Warriors'' series or original creations, starting with Joan of Arc, Achilles and Nemea... and due to the merging with Tecmo, they're able to put in [[VideoGame/NinjaGaiden Ryu Hayabusa]] and [[VideoGame/DeadOrAlive Ayane]]. As they gave out more additions, they started giving out [[VideoGame/NinjaGaiden Rachel, Momiji]] and eventually as of ''Ultimate'', they also brought in [[VideoGame/DeadOrAlive Kasumi]], followed by [[Franchise/{{Atelier}} Sterkenburg]]. All of them are Koei-Tecmo properties... when suddenly, they introduced [[SoulSeries Sophitia]], who is from a Creator/NamcoBandai property. That's some high level of 'guest'.

** ''Warriors Orochi 3'' and its expansions add guest characters from ''[=BladeStorm=]'', ''Warriors: Legend of Troy'', ''Z'ill Oll'', ''Atelier'' and ''VideoGame/NinjaGaiden'' and ''VideoGame/DeadOrAlive''. The most surprising add is probably a guest from the ''[[SoulSeries Soul Calibur]]'' games.
