** Cao Pi's second wife and responsible in a rather cult-favorite family drama of the Cao family after Cao Pi, which is about her making Zhenji lose favor from Cao Pi, ordered to commit suicide, and then Cao Rui later found out and had her commit suicide and shamed her in death, just like she did to his mother. Now you might be thinking: Zhenji is already a rather haughty bitchy character, how would Nuwang differentiate? Easy. By making Nuwang an inverse of Zhenji, if Zhen is a haughty and bitchy lady, then she would be something of a JerkWithAHeartOfGold, she looks standoffish and dismissive, but actually loves her husband very much deep inside. On the other hand, Nuwang would be a rather toned down BitchInSheepsClothing (it's just not Koei's style to make a complete bitch without redeeming qualities): She acts sweet and polite, looking like Cai Wenji on the outside, but on the inside, she's prone to plot for her own nefarious ends, with self-mumbling, cursing at her opposition, or sometimes acting violent (this side could actually give Pre-7!Sima Yi a run for his money). She does have positive sides, like caring for the common people (let's say to contrast with Zhenji, she's born commoner, not noble) or fighting to defend her homeland or genuinely loving Cao Pi, but her negative sides make her really stand out to the audience, while the characters until Cao Rui didn't know any better.

* Sima Yan
** Sima Zhao and Wang Yuanji's son, who started the Jin Dynasty and the one who finally ended the Three Kingdoms. Since Jia Chong and Wen Yang, who also served the Jin Dynasty, showed up as playable characters, he should appear as well in the next game. Well, Sima Zhao looks old enough to become a dad and Wang Yuanji could be just handwave like Zhang Chunhua for her youthful appearance. Sima Yanís design may look like the one seen the ending of the seventh game but he should have inherited the hair color from his parents. Heís probably going to be the NiceGuy or the TokenGoodTeammate who really wants to unite the three kingdoms and is not a lazy bum like his dad so he might inherit his momís no-nonsense attitude. Then, [[TheCorrupter Jia Chong]] influenced him after his fatherís death but Sima Yan is careful not to always take his advice (like when Jia Chong opposed his plan to conquer Wu but Sima Yan refused to listen to him and went ahead with his conquest).
* Yang Huiyu
** Sima Shiís (third) wife and Yang Huís older sister, who might be Sima Shiís MoralityPet. I imagine her being the {{Oneesama}} or the CoolBigSis of the group and is best friends with Wang Yuanji. But considering how Zhang Chunhua affected Sima Yiís character, she will not make Sima Shi a HenpeckedHusband. When Sima Shi dies, she will be devastated but she will continue to support her brother-in-law, Sima Zhao, and later her nephew, Sima Yan. To add the in-joke of Sima Shiís obsession with meat buns, she will be a good cook whose meat buns are so delicious that Sima Shi refused to share it to anyone.

** Actually, this is explained in universe. The "it's me" guy does age, and eventually passes away, and his son replaces him in the army after informing the player character that he will fight just as loyally as his father did. This is why he appears as a younger model during Zhong Hui's Rebellion - because he is a different, younger man.

Koei has already spun off the ''Warriors'' series to include the Warring States period of Japan, the Hundred Years' War, the Trojan War, as well as a series with Franchise/{{Gundam}}, OnePiece, and FistOfTheNorthStar. The American Civil War is the next obvious step from here...

* Li Jue
** An officer of Dong Zhuo, he particularly looks like a terrifying EvilSorcerer in ''Shin Sangoku Musou Blast''. Anyway, he participated in the Battle of Si Shui Gate as a commander and foreseen how Hua Xiong died. Still loyal to Dong Zhuo after his death, he eventually got his revenge by killing Wang Yun, pretty much making him a hated enemy of Diaochan. Afterwards, he took the Emperor hostage, but ended up getting entangled to a civil war with his ally Guo Si and died as a result.

Added DiffLines:

* Mi Shi
** In conjunction of Mi Fang above, this is her sister, one of Liu Bei's wives before Sun Shangxiang, and then the lady who delivered infant Liu Shan to Zhao Yun in Changban before committing suicide on a well. This lady would've been around since the earlier era of Shu, and since Koei puts Liu Bei X SSX as their OTP and Mi Shi WASN'T the blood mother of Liu Shan, Koei can take a lot of liberties with this one: She was one of the wives trapped in Cao Cao's services when Guan Yu was captured and forced to serve him so they could have a lot of rapport together, without actually marrying (female friend or sorts). She would accompany Guan Yu during the 'Guan Yu's Escape' scenario and probably also had a hand in Guan Yu's decision to adopt Guan Ping. While she's more of the intellect type, she would still possess the bravery to protect Liu Shan in Changban (this would translate to a HoldTheLine mission with her) until Zhao Yun arrived, and then she threw herself to the well like usual. Sure, she might be short-lived, but the game also has a lot more short-lived characters like Dian Wei or Pang Tong. Likewise, this might have an effect to Liu Bei, who was also hiding the grief of the loss of one of his wives, though Sun Shangxiang will help him move on. But most importantly, Mi Shi would've been Mi Fang's MoralityChain, on hearing her death, he started having SanitySlippage and blaming others for her death, but especially Guan Yu because he wasn't there at Changban regardless of the good rapport he got during their time trapped by Cao Cao. In case hypothetical scenario exists, Mi Shi might turn out to be a case of [[HesJustHiding She's Just Hiding]], either she survived the fall or she was cunning enough to make sure her fall wouldn't be fatal and then went into hiding (they NeverFoundTheBody after all), only reappearing at Fan Castle to prevent Mi Fang from defecting to Wu.

** The EnsembleDarkhorse amongst NPC's, one of Wu's most steadfast generals, serving the 3 generations of Sun family from Jian to Quan alongside Huang Gai and Han Dang, and has a 'unique' weapon, the Serpent Spear (think of it like a toned down version of Zhang Fei's Viper Blade). While he doesn't have historical noteworthiness, Koei can give him some... in particular, his relations with other veteran of Wu: Zu Mao. Cheng Pu and Zu Mao are rather close together, but Zu Mao died as early as the battle of Si Shui Gate against Hua Xiong (this is why Zu Mao probably wouldn't make it to the roster). Mao's death crushed Pu, but then he resolved to protect the family even better, so no one will have to share the same fate as Mao. He becomes increasingly workaholic, as eventually Huang Gai and Han Dang have to convince him to stop that for his health and Cheng Pu would learn the lesson of letting go of the past and focusing on what matters: Servitude to the Lord.
