** Ramped up again in ''Warriors Orochi 3''. Take all those, add [[WarriorsLegendsOfTroy the bona fide Greek Badass Achilles]], and ''the'' {{Badass}} VideoGame {{Ninja}} [[VideoGame/NinjaGaiden Ryu Hayabusa]] and you're in for an ultimate showdown. (Mildly {{Jossed}} in that Nezha apparently > Lu Bu ''and'' Achilles though.)

** The game tries to remedy this by suggesting a recommended team for each stage, which is usually the characters most plot relevant to the stage, however you can choose to ignore this.

Added DiffLines:

* SequenceBreaking: In the third game's Gauntlet Mode, the DLC stage "Heavenly Emperor's Palace", [[BonusBoss Hundun]] can be defeated by having the in-game messages pop up to the point the game cannot keep up with the script! [[note]]Normally, you're supposed to disable four power crystals to weaken Hundun. But the player has the option to skip but one to attack Hundun, who is buffed up and revives after his HP hits a certain range with a message. However, players using the "Getaway" formation skill will have the game state "This formation is locked" each time they try to use it. This has a side effect of stalling the script of the map, and the game cannot keep up with the messages needed to automatically restore Hundun.[[/note]]

Added DiffLines:

* VillainousFriendship: While in the first two games it was left up in the air the third makes it pretty clear that Keiji, Masamune, Da Ji, and most of the demons truly respected Orochi. Even long after his death they still hope for his return. [[spoiler: When they realize what the Hydra truly is their disappointment at it's mindless, hollow state is so great most of them pull heel-face turns to help destroy it just because they view it as an affront to the man they used to serve.]]

The story is about a powerful demonic BloodKnight with a [[SinisterScythe big scythe]] named {{Orochi}}, the Serpent King (instead of a eight-headed snake monster), committing some sort of sin, thus he is sentenced to eternal damnation. Meanwhile, the fox demoness from the ''Literature/FengshenYanyi'' epic novel, Da Ji, somehow sympathized with him. Acknowledging the chaos that he could bring to the world, she sets him free ForTheEvulz. United together and true to his BloodKnight nature, Orochi starts seeking out {{Worthy Opponent}}s. Solution? Merge the eras of the Three Kingdoms and Warring States Period together and go challenge their warriors. One by one, they begin to fall to Orochi's might. Unfortunately, his actions made the gods aware of his activities and they came to put a stop to them, but Orochi gathered some of the officers that he defeated to serve him and [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu kicked their asses]].

** ConfusionFu[=/=]CriticalHitClass: ''Warriors Orochi 3'' adds in the Wonder-type characters. Their type actions either border on CombinationAttack or StatusBuff (akin to the Power-types with the latter), but via their "combination attack stats", they are able to use the [[FlashStep Spirit]] [[DashAttack Charge]] (AKA Shadow Art in Japanese) from ''Samurai Warriors 3'' (but this time, it can be used any airborne actions), and can also inflict critical hits on a stunned target or a target staggered from the Break Guard mechanic. Expect a LOT of possible combo generation from this type.

** JackOfAllStats[=/=]CriticalHitClass: Technique-type characters. They are able to use R1 in the place of the Triangle button to enhance any of their charge attack finishers via the Enhanced Strike/Extra Charge Attack mechanic (one of the said EX Charge Attacks acts as their main Type Action Special depending on the Technique-type in question). They also have an [[CounterAttack Extra]] [[ComboBreaker Counter]] with R1 that can be used when they suffer damage, but all of these actions cost Musou, and most normally enhanced charge attacks are merely sped-up versions anyway (''Warriors Orochi 2'' makes it so that enhanced C1 and C2 attacks are the only elemental activation C1s and C2s out there, but some Technique-type characters' enhanced charge attacks have a lot more added effects in that said game). Like the Speed-types, in ''3'', they have reworked mechanics with only one R1 Type Action, while also having a [[NonchalantDodge sidestep]] mechanic that can be used to proc instant versions of their dashing square attacks. While forcing them to be limited on offense in the vanilla game, ''Ultimate'' adds in a new item that allows them to sidestep cancel their charge attacks and Type Actions for very solid offense (as well as a new mechanic with being able to [[NoIAmBehindYou dodge around the opponent when getting hit]]). Ah, and of course throughout all games their charge attacks and Type Actions alike can [[CriticalHit critically hit]] any airborne targets.

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.
