** ''Battle of Komaki-Nagakute'' from 2 is hellish, especially if you don't grind with a character beforehand. A few minutes after the stage begins, a ram will appear to break doors to Ieyasu's base and you have to keep it from being destroyed by the enemy. But if you aren't able to kill all 6 officers around the area, the troops won't stop and the enemy officers will likely go to the ram. If this happens, it's sure to be destroyed decreasing your morale greatly and you'll slowly lose many of your allies. The hell comes from the fact that you need to kill all of the enemy officers in the area in a very short amount of time and considering that they love to constantly block your attacks while barely attacking just wastes precious time to take out the others.

* AngstWhatAngst: Contrasting her reaction in ''3: Xtreme Legends'', Gracia is surprisingly not too saddened upon hearing of Akechi Mitsuhide's death in ''4''. During the "Battle of Hiketa" where she sides with Chosokabe Motochika against the Hashiba Army (who were responsible for her father's death), she will only say that she wants to continue her father's legacy. While Gracia DOES show a little angst in ''4-II'' when she receives the news of Mitsuhide's passing, with everyone labelling him a traitorous criminal, it lasts roughly a few seconds, and she's instantly back to being cheery.

Actually averted in the ''Spirit of Sanada'', where despite Koshosho and Chosokabe Motochika tugging her away to safety, Gracia couldn't stop crying for her father.

** Naotora has more appearances outside of ''Samurai Warriors'' and ''Warriors Orochi'', being a GuestFighter in ''[[VideoGame/DeadOrAlive Dead Or Alive 5: Last Round]]'' and the female representative of ''Samurai Warriors'' for ''VideoGame/MusouStars''.

* FirstInstallmentWins: The first title was well-received in the West despite the ''Warriors'' franchise usually scoring predictably low with reviewers. The story and voice acting were praised and the subtle, but notable departures from ''Dynasty Warriors'' fighting mechanics were seen favourably (particuarly the EasternRPG elements, which added additional replay value). Fans are more divided on whether the {{Sequel}}s improved upon the original or never matched it.

** However as the time passes by, the first game is slowly but surely forgotten due to how.... [[EarlyInstallmentWeirdness weird]] it really was, when you compare it to the sequels who offer flashier and more expanded storylines. Admit it, how many people who are still remember ''how'' the first game and its stories were like?

** The opening scene in Azai Story Mode in ''4'' has Yoshitsugu standing motionlessly while RainOfArrows [[ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy inexplicably miss him completely]], and Takatora chastises him for being stupid and almost kill himself. In the anime adaptation, Yoshitsugu is killed in Sekigahara by similar RainOfArrows while Takatora [[ForcedToWatched watches]].

Added DiffLines:

* FunnyAneurysmMoment:
** Nene's dream stage in ''2'' depicts her "spanking" everyone in Sekigahara, both from Western and Eastern, and the whole situation is treated as comedy. Anime adaptation and ''Spirit of Sanada'' instead show that despite being Hideyoshi's widow, Nene ''really'' can't do anything to solve the dispute between Mitsunari and Ieyasu.

Added DiffLines:

** Lots of Aya's quotes about "[[LoveFreak love]]". For starters, her quote after defeating an officer in ''4'' is this: [[InLoveWithYourCarnage "It feels good to have shared a love."]]

** In ''4'', Ieyasu's normal praise is "You're an asset to me", which is fine. If he said it to [[ReluctantFanserviceGirl Naotora]], though, it unwittingly [[BuxomIsBetter means something else]].



** It's easy to mistake Ranmaru for a girl, particularly when it's also an InUniverse RunningGag: he uses female motion sets, [[CrossDressingVoice is voiced by a woman in the Japanese and English versions]] (the latter starting from the second) and is frequently used to induce UnsettlingGenderReveal on ChivalrousPervert Magoichi and other characters or simply to make fun of his feminine appearance (such as setting him up in a beauty contest).

Though in ''4'', his voice becomes slightly more masculine, so it becomes less possible to mistake him for a woman again.

** Koei Tecmo ignored the reason Gracia's well-known in the first place in favor of an original story with her and Magoichi in her first appearance for ''2: Xtreme Legends''; TheOtherWiki has a [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hosokawa_Gracia good article on her actual history]]. ''3: Xtreme Legends'' certainly pays a little more attention to her history, though it still skips on the [[UsefulNotes/JapaneseChristian reason why she's historically famous]]. Chances are the publisher wants to avoid any sort of religious controversy and the only clues to her Christian background are her foreign name (instead of her default name "Tamako") and her outlandish fashion style (evoking ElegantGothicLolita).
