Technique icon-wo

Technique (技) is a character type introduced in the Warriors Orochi series. Characters in this category are represented by the color yellow. Charge attacks inflict critical hits onto any airborne targets with this type, either during juggle or from a normal knockdown/launch. If a player's team possess two or more Technique characters, the final Musou in a Musou chain will automatically activate the Absorb skill.

Technique characters incorporate their Type Action into one of their Charge Attacks for an Enhanced Strike ("Extra Charge Attack" in the Japanese scripts; i.e. Square, Square, R1). All Enhanced Strikes (abbreviated as "C#-EX") have faster animations than standard Charge Attacks, but usually have no extra properties outside of that. Some serve as the character's standard Type Action special (often abbreviated as "C#-EX-SP").

If characters in this type are being hit, they can also perform an invincible "Extra Counter" (tap R1 while being hit). This works even on a trip or tumble-over hit state before the character touches the ground, otherwise, this attack cannot be activated during a knockback or launch. Both Type Actions however, require Musou which may hamper their performance when cornered in crowds.

In the sequel, a number of Enhanced Strikes, both special attack and non-special attack versions, gain more extra properties than in the previous installment, especially extra elemental activation; from there, Technique type characters via their C1-EX and C2-EX attacks are the only ones that can activate elements while most non-enhanced variations cannot. However, as a trade-off, most Technique type characters' Type Actions have around double the original Musou cost from the previous game.

Warriors Orochi 3 removes its previous Type Actions with limiting them to a single R1 Type Action, and granting them an invincible sidestep in any direction (press X while guard-strafing; known as either the "Step" in Asian scripts or localized as the "Sidestep") which has users become temporarily invincible upon execution and like it implies, they will continue facing their initial orientation when executed. However, when used to cancel charge attacks and R1 Type Actions while grounded, it loses its invincibility but can be used instead to proc instant dash attacks as well as activate certain elements for a more offensive use. Ultimate allows Technique characters to use the "Evasion Step" mechanic to shift behind enemies by pressing X while being attacked.
