Trivia / Samurai Warriors

  • Acting for Two: Not unlike Dynasty Warriors, it's been quite a trend so far:
    • Hideo Ishikawa as both Hideyoshi and Motonari; for the former, it wasn't until the second game. Even he voices two different characters in Dynasty Warriors as well.
    • It's surprising to hear Yuuji Ueda either as the boisterous Maeda Keiji, or hear him shriek with insanity as Sasaki Kojirou.
    • Jouji Nakata as both Kenshin and Ieyasu.
    • Mariko Suzuki voices both Nouhime and Kaihime.
    • Naomi Shindou as Ranmaru and Ginchiyo.
    • Wakana Yamazaki is both Okuni and Nene.
    • Nobuyuki Hiyama is Hot-Blooded as Masamune, while being quite sinister as Kotarou.
    • Also applies to Kanetsugu and Kanbei/Kanbee (Masaya Takatsuka).
    • The calm and jerkass Mitsunari and the silent yet hot-blooded Katsuie (Eiji Takemoto).
    • Both Hanbei/Hanbee and Aya (Umeka Shouji).
    • Kojuurou and Kagekatsu are voiced by Ryouta Takeuchi.
    • Katsuyuki Konishi as both Toshiie and Naomasa; he's also not very different from Ryoutarou Okiayu (and Hideo Ishikawa as aforementioned) in that they have three-to-four different roles so far across the whole Warriors/Musou franchise.
  • No Export for You: Sengoku Musou 3 Z, Sengoku Musou 3 Empires and Sengoku Musou Chronicle 2nd.
  • The Other Darrin: Takeda Shingen - Daisuke Gouri was his voice actor, but due to his death, Ryuuzaburou Ootomo serves his role in later installments as of the third game's Xtreme Legends expansion.
    • It happened earlier with Hideyoshi as Hideo Ishikawa voices him as of the second game; he had a radically different voice in the first installment, both vanilla and Xtreme Legends expansion.
    • Ditto for Nagamasa; his VA was changed to Hiroshi Kamiya ever since he was playable.
  • Playing Against Type: Fuuma Kotarou - Wait a minute...Nobuyuki Hiyama?
  • Role Reprisal:
    • Vic Mignogna, the English VA of Mitsuhide in 3 voiced Tenkai (who is technically Mitsuhide in disguise) in Sengoku Basara 3.
    • Johnny Yong Bosch voices Yukimura in both his Samurai Warriors and Sengoku Basara portrayals.
    • Gina Bowes voiced Kunoichi in the first game, and would return to the role in the third game. This makes her the only dub VA for the series to return for not only another game, but the exact same role.
  • Talking to Himself:
    • Chousokabe Motochika: Has special conversations with Sima Shi in Musou Orochi 2/Warriors Orochi 3, then there was the fact Orochi was Okiayu's first role in the franchise.
    • Mouri Motonari: Has special conversations with Jia Xu in Warriors Orochi 3; also has his VA voice both Zhou Tai and Hideyoshi.
    • Uesugi Kagekatsu: Has the same VA as Kojuurou, and considering that the Date will clash with the Uesugi, it's inevitable.
