Musou Mode in Dynasty Warriors 4 replaces individual character scenarios for a kingdom-focused storyline. Players can now switch between different characters before battle and choose their stages. Other factions have their own scenarios, albeit smaller and more limited.

Stories are divided into several acts; each act consists of three (or two for Other factions) different battles. Each battle is set up to have a consecutive impact for the faction's story. For instance, defeating a particular officer in one battle may weaken them greatly in another. Skipping to the concluding battle within an act often presents the enemy forces at their optimum fighting potential. Clearing optional battles or certain objectives in maps allows players some freedom to rearrange events and characters seen in each faction's story.

Setting the difficulty level to "Easy" reduces the challenge ranking of these stages by 1 while "Hard" has the opposite effect. Sub-officer locations can be seen within the game's preparation screen.

Ending RequirementsEdit

There are four different ending cutscenes for each faction. The type of ending received is determined by the player's overall performance during the entire mode. Their feats are conveyed in poetry, and they reflect the amount of enemies killed (Strength), the number of points gained (Mind), and time spent (Speed), all of which are tallied on an average score. The number of battles completed –including Tales stages– also affects which ending the player earns.

Each faction has a special ending which can only be seen by clearing a specific condition in its story:

  • Shu - Force Liu Zhang to surrender in the Campaign for Cheng Du.
  • Wei - Prevent all three ploys in the Battle of Chi Bi.
  • Wu - Claim all three territories in the Race for the Nan Territory.
