''Warriors: Legends of Troy'' is a distant spin-off of the Dynasty Warriors line of games produced by {{Creator/Koei}}-{{Creator/Tecmo}}, set during the TrojanWar.

The game may feel like another entry in the Hack And Slash department, but its storyline and character decor shine thoroughly.

----
!! The ''Warriors: Legends of Troy'' series provides examples of:

* AdaptationDistillation: No one would want to play a game about each and every battle of the Trojan War, now would they?
** PragmaticAdaptation - Several deaths in the mythology weren't as glamorous or interesting as they are in game.
* AnnoyingArrows: See the DynastyWarriors example. Now with volleys of arrows that BLOT OUT THE SUN.
* ArmourIsUseless: Doesn't do much for anyone in this game.
* AmazonBrigade: Penetheselia and her Amazons.
* BadassFamily: The Playable Princes of the Kingdom of Priam.
* BarbarianTribe: The Amazons, depending on how you define Barbarian.
* BecauseDestinySaysSo: This hits like a ton of bricks. No matter what happens, the Gods are dead set in making sure Troy is ruined.
* BloodKnight: Achilles, as usual.
* BodyCountCompetition: Like DynastyWarriors , this can and will often appear as a sub mission and the KillEmAll Rampage Challenge.
* BossInMookClothing: Slayers, Crushers, Guardians, Brutes and their upgraded forms can provide more of a threat than the actual boss of the level.
* BowAndSwordInAccord: Paris and the Mook Archers.
* ButtonMashing: Played with. Of course you can button mash your way through the game, but that won't let you perform perfectly TimedHits.
* CassandraTruth: Featuring none other than the TropeNamer herself.
* ColorCodedArmies - Red for the Trojans, Blue for the Greeks, Greenish-White-Black for Zombies/Mythical Enemies.
* TheComputerIsACheatingBastard: Slayers can attack while back rolling , attack while dodging, attack while parrying and attack while stunned. This is the only thing that stands out the most.
* CombatByChampion: Aka Boss Fights. You actually get to watch a few later in the game.
* ConservationOfNinjutsu
* {{Crossover}}: Achilles appears in the latest ''WarriorsOrochi'' title. Note that this is the time when you now make [[UltimateShowdownOfUltimateDestiny one of the greatest warriors of the Trojan War fight the heroes of the Three Kingdoms and Sengoku eras]], plus Ryu Hayabusa for good measure.
* DeathEqualsRedemption: It's wholesale in this world.
* DeathSeeker: The Amazon Queen has a few issues she needs to work out.
* DeathOfAThousandCuts: Most of the Mythical Boss Fights, a couple of the main fights and every boss fight on Expert mode, that is until you build your own InfinityPlusOneSword.
* EscortMission: There are only 3 and the Ai is suicidal in one of the missions, while it hides in the back and waits for you to dispatch the enemies in another.
* FoeTossingCharge: Not as much as a typical Dynasty Warriors installment.
** Ajax and the Super Strength Cheat proves this trope true when you start flinging people into the horizon.
* FriendlyFireproof: Triggering your fury does nothing to allied warriors. The same for Odyesses' knives and Paris' Arrows.
* HackAndSlash
* InfinityPlusOneSword: As you unlock items, you can make your all your attacks deal maximum, unblockable, perfect timed hit damage - while regaining health and fury every time you preform a finishing move on a random mook and remain invincible until you kill every enemy in the area.
* ItsPronouncedTroPAY: ZAY-EUS! AGGA-MEN-DON, I HAVE DONE WHAT YOU ASKED.
* ItsUpToYou: Named Allies can defeat enemies, unnamed ones do almost no damage, but in the end only you can participate in duels and complete objectives.
* ItSeemedLikeAGoodIdeaAtTheTime: Paris deciding to take Zeus up on his offer.
* KillItWithFire : How the Greeks disposed of the Trojans.
* LimitBreak: Fury Mode.
* LuckBasedMission: Good luck on reaching the enemy base camp without getting spotted while playing Nightfall on Expert.
* MookChivalry: Gloriously averted, which is quite noticeable since the rest of the 'Warriors' games uses it freely. If you let those mooks encircle you, they WILL happily jab at your unprotected flanks and back, even on the easiest setting. On Expert, running directly into a group of Mooks is basically suicide, unless you're very well equipped...
* MoreDakka: Stone throwers, blotting out the sky with arrows and just for those who are inclined -- The ability to shoot endless projectiles as Odysseus and Paris. Then when you beat the game? You unlock the ability to throw infinite enemy swords.
* {{Multishot}}: If Paris could do even half of what he does in the game, the war might have ended differently.
* {{Mukokuseki}}: Almost all of the characters are tanned, with the exception of Achilles.. who looks more like a Norse viking than a Greek warrior.
** That's because he's clearly based on Brad Pitt's Achilles in {{Troy}}.
* PerfectPlayAI: The Slayers, The Brutes and The Guardians, this is their known M.O. Just don't be there when they stop moving. The same applies to every human boss character.
* {{Public Domain Character}}s: The source material is the Literature/TrojanCycle, especially ''Literature/TheIliad'', written in the 8th and 7th centuries BCE.
* PowerLimiter: Certain artifacts that you unlock can increase your stats " beyond Mortal Limits"
* RedemptionEqualsDeath
* RedshirtArmy: Everyone - Especially the poor Trojans and their bright red.
* SchmuckBait: The game suggests you find another way to penetrate the Greek Wall. It even provides you with a nice blinking marker of where to go. But, you know what? Go ahead, try to fight your way through. You'll feel good until the endlessly respawning BossInMookClothing, GoddamnBats and DemonicSpiders start appearing out of nothing.
* SerialEscalation: How much longer will the Gods toy with the Sons of Priam? How much longer can Troy hold out?! How much longer will everyone ignore Cassandra?!
* ShoutOut: Quite a few small ones in game, but in the trophy section?
** IT'S OVER 9000! WHAT 9000! THERE'S NO WAY THAT COULD BE RIGHT
** THEY SEE ME ROLLAN THEY HATIN
** I'M TOO OLD FOR THIS SHI....P
* ShownTheirWork: The developers really shined this time around.
* TimedHits
* TrojanHorse: Obviously.
* TheTrojanWar: The source material that they followed quite closely with a few changes here and there.
* UnstoppableRage: Achilles. Most definitely Achilles.
* VillainExitStageLeft: Applies to everyone, unless it is in a chapter where they die.
* WeHaveReserves: You'd think after 9 years of fighting the Greeks or Trojans would start running low on soldiers after you've killed a few thousand of them.
* YouALLLookFamiliar: Subverted and played straight. If you look closely, a lot of the mooks have different haircuts, facial hair and clothing for both the Greeks, Zombies and Trojans. Yet, eventually, if you kill enough of them, their faces start to recycle.
