* NintendoHard: This is a Creator/{{KOEI}} game we're talking about. You can expect the games to be very challenging.
** To be more specific, the last two stages of the first game are hell to clear because even though the mooks can be taken out easily, the officers' stats are insanely higher than the mooks, being able to take the player out with only a few hits, even if you're playing on normal mode with high level officers.
** Missions where you have to chase an enemy down or protect someone from dying are especially challenging as well. As an example from the first game when you have to stop Sun Ce in Wei's story mode. When you actually reach him, his stats will be far higher than yours, even if you're playing with high level officers, he will kick your ass unless you use a power character as they have higher defense than speed and technique. And if you don't kill him soon enough, Zhou You will appear with two sub officers and while you don't have to kill them, they'll cause you a great deal of trouble trying to kill Sun Ce.

"Unmatched Orochi" in Japan) is a MassiveMultiplayerCrossover video game series made by KOEI, crossing over the historical ''Warriors'' series (''[[VideoGame/DynastyWarriors Dynasty]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/SamuraiWarriors Samurai]]''), with the addition of several original mystical characters sourced primarily from the [[Myth/JapaneseMythology Japanese]] and [[Myth/ChineseMythology Chinese mythologies]] here and there.

In contrast to other ''Warriors'' games, ''Warriors Orochi'' features a tag team system, which allows the player to take three characters and have them fight as a single unit on the battlefield. The characters are divided into four different types (three prior to ''Warriors Orochi 3''): Power, Speed, Technique and Wonder, which dictate their fighting styles.

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 UsefulNotes/{{PS4}} and UsefulNotes/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 ''VideoGame/{{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.

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* DevelopersForesight: Playing a stage using characters other than the recommended ones will usually bring some changes into it, which generally includes generic officers taking their place (if they are allied [=NPCs=] in this stage) and some new dialogues. Heck, playing the Rescue Battles in [=WO3=] with the character you're supposed to resuce in your team even creates some hilarious Time Travel confusion.
--> '''Tadakatsu Honda''': Ina, you're all right! Then, the monsters must have captured...
--> '''Ina''': [[WhichMe Ina!]]
--> '''Tadakatsu Honda''': Huh?
--> '''Ina''': Yes, I am Ina... But so is the prisoner!
** A more significant case was with Wei's Battle of Komaki-Nagakute in Warriors Orochi 2. Under normal gameplay conditions, you're not supposed to reach Orochi as the gates leading to him are locked, and Kiyomori teleports his lord away before you have a chance to fight him. With cheats, however, you can walk past the wall to fight Orochi, here, you actually run into dialogue exclusive to running into him there, and defeating him will still end the stage normally.

** 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.)

''Warriors Orochi 3'' is the third main installment in the series and was released in December 2011 (although its Asian port name is on the contrast, ''Musou Orochi 2''). It combines the cast of ''Dynasty Warriors 7'' with ''Samurai Warriors 3'', as well as a slew new characters from various folk tales/mythologies: Kaguya the Moon Princess from ''Tale of the Bamboo Cutter'', Shuten Dōji the lord of all [[{{Youkai}} oni]], [[Myth/ChineseMythology Nezha]] the Heavenly General and friend of Sun Wukong, and finally, [[Myth/JapaneseMythology Susano'o]], the original slayer of Orochi. Aside of that, Koei included '[[{{Crossover}} Collaboration Characters]]' from their other franchises, including, Ryu Hayabusa and Ayane of ''VideoGame/NinjaGaiden'' and ''VideoGame/DeadOrAlive'', [[UsefulNotes/JoanOfArc Jeanne D'Arc]] of ''VideoGame/BladestormTheHundredYearsWar'', Achilles of ''WarriorsLegendsOfTroy'' and Nemea of Zill O'll. The English version was released in March 2012. However there is no dubbing, only Japanese with English subtitles.

* 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 [[VideoGame/SoulSeries Sophitia]], who is from a Creator/BandaiNamcoEntertainment property. That's some high level of 'guest'.

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.

[[UpdatedRerelease A PSP version was also released]] and titled ''Musou Orochi 2 Special'' on July 19, 2012, it adds Seimei Abe, a legendary onmyōji, as well as Rachel from ''VideoGame/NinjaGaiden''.
