Awesome: Warriors Orochi

  • In Warriors Orochi 3, Zhenji and Cao Pi go to He Fei to rescue Lu Xun from a serious predicament. After they drive off his foes, a Wu soldier charges at them, mistaking them for enemies. Zhenji just goes "lol no" and slaps the Mook's sword away with her bare hand. In addition, the sword...well, I don't have a good measurement, but I can tell you that it landed a great distance away from her, Cao Pi, and the unsurprisingly baffled soldier.
  • Hayabusa's debut in Anegawa. Kiyomori is just reciting the spell to mind control people, and suddenly there comes Hayabusa, just standing up with Badass Arm-Fold behind him. Kiyomori intercepts, Hayabusa uses wall run to dodge Kiyomori, ending with a clean leaping slice. "Mission Accomplished". All to the tune of his Leitmotif, the remix of the Stage 4-2 NES Ninja Gaiden theme.
  • The Sun Family gets a collective one in the Wu ending of Warriors Orochi were each member delivers "The Reason You Suck" Speech to Orochi.
    Sun Ce: You could never break us, what made you think otherwise?
    Sun Quan: In fact we should thank you for strengthing our bonds!
    Sun Shang Xiang: That's right! You shall be punished for the trouble you have caused.
    Sun Jian: You are no match...for the combined might of the Sun family!
    • Each one then strikes Orochi with their weapon at the same time and causes him to explode.
  • During the Intro Movie for the First Game, it shows Orochi bringing all the warriors and creating the realm. It shows places such as Nagashino, Chibi, and Edo being sucked in. Others are looking on in confusion and shock at what just happened and what's going on when Orochi appears with his vast army. Who's the only one who's keeping a cool head and staying in control this entire time despite all that happened? Nobunaga himself.
  • In Battle of Nagashino for 1, Takeda-Uesugi-Huang Zhong Coalition are in their Darkest Hour. But then Shingen-Kenshin prepare a plan to unleash the cavalry. Then, eventually the literal cavalry really comes with Kanetsugu Naoe in command, and the gloomy music of Nagashino is changed into this awesome music.
  • Anytime Tadakatsu Honda appears in 1 in The Gaiden Stages. Appearing when things start to look gleam and single handily raising morale himself and frightening the Enemy forces. There's a reason why Tokugawa would've won against Orochi if he had had Tadakatsu with him.
  • Orochi's forces against The Takeda-Uesugi forces in 2 in his story mode. Shingen and Kenshin are shown in front of their armies calmly looking out ahead and Kanetsugu and Yukimura give commands and The entire Cavalry charges ahead. The camera pans back in the distance and you see Orochi on a hill Scythe in hand watching them come at him and a smile starts to form on his face.
  • Shu's version of Koshi Castle in 1. Orochi has Liu Bei before him his weapon at his throat threatening to kill him. Liu Bei pleads with the others to surrender for his sake only for Zhuge Liang to rush forward and hit him across the face revealing it to be Da Ji in disguise who is stunned that they didn't buy it. And Zhuge Liang tells them that Liu Bei would never put his own life before others.
  • Someone actually managed to create a set of combo videos for the Hack and slash game. More amazingly is how he turns Orochi X, Lu Bu, Keiji or Tadakatsu into nothing more than punching bags. Either by insane loads of damage, a really long, showy combo
