The series's staple of providing a cinematic experience in Musou Mode began with this game; it is a severe contrast to the simple beat-em-up presentation from the previous title. Characters must now fight in stages vaguely synonymous to their Romance of the Three Kingdoms counterparts when they are selected within this mode. Most characters fight seven battles; Liu Bei, Cao Cao, and Sun Jian have ten stages. Pre-rendered cutscenes and filler battles are now included to fill in missing gaps between major stages.

Other characters aren't playable within this mode until the Xtreme Legends expansion.

Xtreme Legends Musou ModeEdit

Other characters (minus Fu Xi and Nu Wa) have their own unique "what-if" scenarios. Each stage adds twists that vary from character to character, and even filler battles are treated as respectable story battles. Players can unlock a fireworks display during the ending scene by clearing the game with certain officers as well as those from the original Musou Mode.

The stars in the chart below indicate the respective difficulty level for each scenario. The more black stars there are, the harder the stage.
