Dynasty Warriors (三国無双, Sangoku Musou) is the beginning of the Dynasty Warriors series. Unlike the later games, the original game was a 3D one-to-one weapons-based fighting game similar to Tekken, Soul Edge/Soul Blade, or Star Gladiator. The tag line for the title is "You can't say you know the Three Kingdoms until you've played Dynasty Warriors!".

AllusionsEdit

  • Many of the characters' attacks in this game continue to influence their future incarnations in the Dynasty Warriors series. Certain characters, such as Zhang Fei, Taishi Ci and Dian Wei, kept several of the same animations until Dynasty Warriors 6.
  • The animations for their winposes also appear in other titles. A majority of them were changed by the series' fourth installment or fifth installment. As a likely homage, Zhao Yun's victory pose in Dynasty Warriors 6 replicates his actions during this game's intro movie and his winpose.
  • Character models also appear as alternate costumes in Destrega.
  • Nobunaga's theme music is remixed and later reused in Oda Nobunaga Den.
