Dynasty Warriors 3Edit

Ground MovesetEdit

Remains the same with the following additions/changes:

Square, Square, Square, Square, Tri, (Tri): Forces the spear's blunt end upwards in a turn; pressing Tri again will cause Jiang Wei to finish with a meteor slash.
Square, Square, Square, Square, Square, Tri: An upward slash that sends a vertical cutting wave forward. The wave travels slightly above the ground level, and unlike others it does not produce crashing knockback, but a small spiraling launch.
Square, Square, Square, Square, Square, Square: Back-thrusts his spear upward diagonally, then back bashes behind the other way with his shaft, swings outward while turning to front with the left, does an outward right-handed swing, an inward sweeping strike, then a low-position outward sweeping slash.
Dashing Square: A whole double-armed swing to the left while skidding.

Horse MovesetEdit

Tri: Jiang Wei leans to each side, and swings his weapon to each side.
Square, Square, Square, Square, Square, Square: Three attacks to the right side, three to the left.

Fighting Style Edit

Jiang Wei has shared most of Ma Chao's quick motions in terms of spear moveset, where he does quick swings and flashy footwork. However, his attacks are arguably more crowd oriented than Ma Chao's, making him one of the more solid characters in the game. One of his only weaknesses is that musou is hard to aim fully, but gets easier with each installment. His 4th weapon's elemental activation via lightning works wonders on his C6, due to the no-knockback effect allowing him to clear crowds with just one or two targets hit.

Dynasty Warriors 4Edit

R3: Surrounds the user in glittering light to stun enemies within range. Aura may change color in Free Mode to match the user's chosen side.

Ground MovesetEdit

Removes power guards to replace with counterattacks. Remains the same with the following additions/changes:

Tri: Turns and fires an elemental shot with his right hand (while holding spear with other). Equipping a lightning orb fires three shots or five shots at once. Inflicts fall-over state on grounded targets, and inflicts crashing knockback on airborne opponents. Elemental shots cannot pierce through any units.
Square, Square, Tri, (Tri), (Tri), (Tri): Slices forwards while reversing with the blunt end rapidly, and ends with a spin with the spear that stuns.
X, Square: Same as before but can be extended with two additional taps.
X, Tri: Plants his spear into the ground.
L1, Tri: Counters with his C4.

Horse MovesetEdit

Circle: Repeating slashes to all sides as the Musou gauge empties.

Fighting StyleEdit

In Dynasty Warriors 4 and onward, Jiang Wei is an excellent beginner character and is good in many situations. His C3 is one of the best crowd-clearing attacks in the series, and is good at opening certain defenses.

Dynasty Warriors 5Edit

Ground MovesetEdit

Removes bow moveset from previous games. Remains the same with the following additions/changes:

Tri: Same as before, but sends a single fire orb which later explodes. Will instantly explode if it impacts walls.
Square, Square, Square, Square, Tri: Same as before, but instead creates a small white typhoon that knocks enemies upwards.
Square, Square, Square, Square, Square, Tri: Dashes forwards to stab opponent, then turns around and makes a huge slash after a braking leap.
Square, Square, Square, Square, Square, Square, Square, Square, Square: After the fifth blow, Jiang Wei starts his C4 chain.
Circle (True): Jiang Wei throws out a fireball at the end. One of the few Musou Attacks to not involve a large launching whirlwind like the rest of the Shu officers.
X, Square: A wide outward slash aimed downward.
X, Tri: Jiang Wei flips forward into position, followed by multiple thrusts downward while hovering in the air finishing with an inward swipe.
Warriors Orochi
X, Tri: Same as before, only the thrusts fire energy darts for added range.
X, X: An airdash that makes him temporarily invincible. Jiang Wei rolls forward.
R1: Using some musou, he rapidly thrusts his spear forward while turning it, casting a spell that emits a wave of lightning bolts in front of him.
Direction + R1: Quick spinning kick to his front. Unblockable and stuns targets. Costs no musou.
Warriors Orochi 2
Triple Attack 1: Swings weapon to produce a long air current.
Triple Attack 2: Spins around once, generating a massive pillar of wind in the process.
Triple Attack 3: Sends out a gust of air flying at mid-range.

Fighting Style Edit

His second special in Warriors Orochi can be considered cheap, since it's a fast attack that is unblockable and costs no musou.

Jiang Wei mainly uses the dual spear moveset in this title.
