* 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.

* LetteredSequel: Only exist in the Japanese version though, the PS3 port of the second game is originally titled ''Musou Orochi Z''.

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.

* 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.

Unmatched Orochi in Japan) is a MassiveMultiplayerCrossover made by KOEI, encompassing the historical ''Warriors'' series ([[VideoGame/DynastyWarriors Dynasty]] and [[VideoGame/SamuraiWarriors Samurai]]), with the addition of several original mystical characters here and there.



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...
