Warriors Orochi (series)

From Koei Tecmo Wiki

Warriors Orochi (無双OROCHI, Musou OROCHI) is a crossover series fusing the worlds of Dynasty Warriors and Samurai Warriors. Originally, it was intended to be a parting game for current-gen consoles, namely the PlayStation 2. It was also meant to be a "wish fulfillment" production for both fans and developers alike.

However, due to the success and fan reaction of the first game, Koei made a series out of the concept. They also broadened their range of characters by adding historical and mythical figures from time periods predating the Dynasty Warriors and Samurai Warriors series. The third game includes guest characters from various IPs owned by the company, though they have since been omitted in the fourth game with only the expansion bringing back a smaller number of them.

Ryōichi Tanaka does the Japanese narration for the series while the English dub is done by Douglas Lee.


In all games prior to the latest installments, Dynasty Warriors characters use their fifth game looks while the Samurai Warriors characters mainly use their appearance from the second game (excluding characters cut in this title). Warriors Orochi 3 uses their character models from Dynasty Warriors 7: Empires and Sengoku Musou 3: Moushouden. In Warriors Orochi 4, character models are taken from Dynasty Warriors 8: Empires and Samurai Warriors 4-II.

The Warriors Orochi series has added twenty five characters to the general Warriors series and redesigned two other warriors. Most of them are based on various books and legends, such as Journey to the West, Fengshen Yanyi, and The Tale of the Heike. The series allows cross-era relationships that previously had no chance of happening to take place.

Most of these original and guest characters are labeled as "Other" until the the fourth game.

Characters that made their debut in Warriors Orochi 2 are merged with the first Warriors Orochi due to the Japanese title of Warriors Orochi 2 being called Musou Orochi: Maou Sairin.
