** It's very possible Koei doesn't plan to include non-Japanese samurai like [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Adams_%28sailor%29 Anjin Miura/William Adams]] and, above all [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yasuke Yasuke]], a black, ''African'' samurai, albeit in Yasuke's case, this is for avoiding UnfortunateImplications, as he was serving under the orders of ''Nobunaga Oda'', and [[EvilOverlord everyone knows how Nobunaga is depicted traditionally]]. Oddly enough, Yasuke ''does'' appear in ''VideoGame/NobunagasAmbition'' as one of the many ronin Nobunaga and any other daimyo can recruit in the game.

* TakeThat: Given his [[TheAmbitionofOdaNobuna other portrayals]] [[SengokuBasara throughout]] [[NobunagaConcerto fiction]], it can't be coincidence that Hisahide's so blatantly aware of his CardCarryingVillain status.

* AngstWhatAngst: Contrasting her reaction in ''[=3:XL=]'', Gracia is surprisingly not too saddened upon hearing Mitsuhide's death in ''4''. During Battle of Hiketa where she sides with Chosokabe against Hashiba Army (who were responsible for her father's death), she will only says that she wants to continue her father's legacy.

She DID show a little angst in 4-II, when she heard that Mitsuhide died and everybody labelled him a traitorous criminal. But... that went away in a few seconds and she's back being cheery.

Added DiffLines:

* NarmCharm: As per ''Warriors'' games tradition, this is bound to happen sooner or later. Also, since ''Samurai Warriors'' is much more character-based rather than kingdom-based like ''Dynasty Warriors'', dramatic lines or moments which are sometimes over-the-top tend to happen more often than you may expect.

* MarySue: Gracia's [=SW2:XL=] story seems to play out as if she were one. And she can use magic for no explained reason, though considering the rest of the cast it might not be that unusual.

* HilariousInHindsight: The marriage between RyotaroOkiayu (Motochika) and AiMaeda (Oichi) could give hilarious vibes that Oichi cheated on Nagamasa for Motochika, while for all we know, the Nagamasa-Oichi love story is pretty well-known for its circle. [[Creator/HiroshiKamiya Oh, and Nagamasa is in despair for that]].

** Some characters even have certain portions of their names cut out during their battle announcements; a notable example is Mitsuhide's nickname of "Juubei" (where he goes Mitsuhide "Juubei" Akechi).
* WTHCastingAgency: Your mileage may vary, as it depends on which version you played first; it certainly doesn't help that the roster gets cleaned out with every numeral. Most seem to agree that Keiji's VA in [=SW2=] was a definite downgrade from his well-loved one in [=SW1=]. Averted with the subtitles-only ''4'', though now it's matter of whether or not you enjoy certain Japanese VA delivery styles.

** Hilariously enough, his English voice in ''Warriors Orochi 1'' and ''Samurai Warriors 3'' is a [[Creator/RogerCraigSmith VA]] who voiced [[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog someone else]] in that exact same type of voice his 2nd game VA used.

** In the Japanese version, defeating an enemy general makes the character exclaim "Tekishou, uchitottari!" AKA "Enemy Officer Defeated!". VideoGame/DynastyWarriors mostly go with direct translation, but VideoGame/SamuraiWarriors translates with variations to the point that by the 2nd game, NOBODY ever said exactly "Enemy Officer Defeated!" when they defeat a general. In the 3rd game, each character has two variable "Enemy officer defeated" lines with the first one being the standard "Tekishou uchitottari" and the second one tailored to the character's personality.
