** ''9'': It's receiving flak for unnecessary changing characters' unique weapons for {{Moveset Clone}}s.

** Ever since ''[=DW7=]'' added the Jin faction, their storyline and the entire games as a whole only ends with the fall of Shu and Zhong Hui's rebellion. It never went further into the events after Zhong Hui's rebellion such as Sima Yan's ascension as the first emperor of Jin and the fall of Wu which are only mentioned in passing. The lack of several playable characters who were important during those events (such as Sima Yan, Yang Hu, Lu Kang, Sun Hao etc.) is the reason why the games never went passed the fall of Shu. Likewise, the lack of the playable officers from the late Wu generation (except for Ding Feng) prevent the games from going further into Sun Quan's reign as the Wu emperor and other events that happened after his reign which led to the collapse of Wu.

*** Matt Fowler(who will voice Zhao Yun and Zhuge Liang) in particular also expressed similar doubts, as he once commented that he loved Lex Lang's work for Zhuge Liang and hopes his acting will do the character justice in some way.

* ToughActToFollow: ''Dynasty Warriors: Godseekers'' is a tactical role-playing spin-off game of ''Dynasty Warriors 8'', similar to ''Dynasty Tactics'', which focuses on Zhao Yun with fantasy elements and is part of celebrating the 15th anniversary of the ''Dynasty Warriors'' franchise. However, this game received low sales in Japan and mediocre reviews. The fact that the game has less hack and slash action, with several characters cut from the roster and the story focusing more on Zhao Yun and the Kingdom of Shu with some fantasy elements lessens the hype around it. In contrast to another character spin-off game in ''Samurai Warriors'' which focuses on Sanada Yukimura, that game was received better as it retains its hack and slash element and character roster with additional historical characters and the story being close to historical accounts [[note]]Unlike Zhao Yun, Yukimura is regarded as a legend in Japan which also explains the game's collaboration of NHK Taiga drama that focuses on Yukimura[[/note]] with the aging system. Considering that ''Godseekers'' was released months before the announcement of ''Dynasty Warriors 9'', many fans rather move on and focus on ''[=DW9=]''.

** The new English voice cast for ''Dynasty Warriors 9'' have very big shoes to fill in as they will replace the voice actors who had played the characters since ''4'' until ''8''. Unlike the original cast, the new cast are from [[http://www.voxxstudios.com/home another L.A.-based voice acting studio]] which is known for dubbing foreign movies, series, soap operas/telenovelas and documentaries. Since ''[=DW9=]'' is their first video game to dub, it's really a huge challenge for them considering that many fans are already used to the original voices of their favorite characters.

** The Wei storyline in ''Dynasty Warriors 7'' and ''8'' only ends with the Battle of Fan Castle, Cao Cao's death and the rise of Cao Pi as Emperor of Cao Wei. Several fans were upset that it didn't went further into Cao Pi's reign where some of the best battles (such as Cao Pi's attempted invasions on Wu) happened. The Wu storyline only touched a little of these battles but not much further. Fortunately, ''9'' finally pays attention to Cao Pi's ascension as emperor after they have added several characters who played important roles during his reign such as Man Chong and Xu Sheng.

** Despite being vastly outnumbered by the male cast, the female characters are incredibly popular and have the largest number of fans, to wit Sun Shangxiang, the Qiao sister, Diaochan, and Zhenji are the most noteworthy.

** Of the "characters who should be included on the roster for the next game", Cheng Pu of the Wu Kingdom was a top contender, even if his claims were "being around Wu for a very long time since Sun Jian's reign", but without any historical noteworthiness. It took him ''nine'' mainline games for him to be playable, where his announcement is met with much rejoicing that the fanbase who were frothing for this CoolOldGuy made wishes for decades. After his announcement, Liao Hua of Shu, an individual who was part of a faction since its birth to its collapse, took up Cheng Pu's old seat of 'top most wanted character to be included next game'. Other major candidates would be Sun Shao of the Wu Kingdom[[note]]Sun Ce and Daqiao's adopted son[[/note]] and Yang Hu of the Jin Kingdom[[note]]Cai Wenji's nephew who served Wei and Jin[[/note]].

*** That, and everyone has different weapon names in the Japanese script; a notable example for someone like Guan Yu is his "Blue Moon Dragon" actually being called the "Yellow Dragon Weir Moon Blade" in Japanese (being named after Huanglong/Kouryuu).

Thus, outside of sources like TheOtherWiki for Koei, the localized names tend to miss a lot of spot-on character symbolism/motifs associated with those said Asian script names.
