And now, since DW8 Xtreme Legends brings back a Lu Bu-based story mode, he gets his own 'kingdom' themes, which are, naturally, remixes of his own theme: Tales of Lu Bu and Grief of Lu Bu. One commenter said it best:
Even his grief sounds angry.
Dynasty Warriors treats the battle Wu Zhang Plains as the final battle, especially for Shu. It's doesn't disappoint.
The theme for Jin in 7, the way it sounds its as if they are saying, "Alright, we've been fighting for so long, time to bring an end to the chaos once and for all."
All of the faction themes in 8 are really good, but one that stands out is the Majestic variation of Wei's theme, which illustrates absolutely perfectly their will to do whatever it takes to bring peace and stability to the land.
Dance Macabre from 5, as its name suggests, wants to make you perform war dance. This is also played in some stages for Warriors Orochi. One of, if not the, the most awesome one is in Battle of Nagashino for WO1, where 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.
Karma Against Hard Invasion from 8:XL, used in the first part of Lu Bu's version of the battle of Xiapi, is different because of just how it reflects how screwed and hopeless Lu Bu's forces are in their current situation. It doesn't make it any less awesome though.
Vanish from the same battle, which is aptly transitted from the above track just after Wei forces activated the flood attack, is mixed with the dread of facing defeat and solemness of a Last Stand, giving the Fan Castle themes a good run for their money.
For the more optimistic Hypothetical Route, you get to hear Strength, Weakness while both showing the bonds of loyalty Lu Bu has formed at Dingtao, and especially during the Recapture of Chang'an, when you must face the combined forces of ALL of Han Dynasty China on your own.
While conquering Xiapi there's Invincible Power, an intense theme that expresses Lu Bu's desire to conquer.
Restart, the track for the final battle of Jin's historical path, perfectly reflects how this is the final battle of the Three Kingdoms era, as well as the sacrifices and losses it took both all four factions for things to lead to this final moment. It also perfectly showcases the end result of Sima Zhao's Character Development in that he is no longer an aloof slacker, but a hardened leader determined to end the chaos for the sake of not only his slain brother, but for everyone who has died up to this point.
