Warriors Orochi/Characters

Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.

Here be the list of Original Generation Characters in Warriors Orochi, See Dynasty Warriors and Samurai Warriors for the other characters.


Orochi - WO Render.jpg


The Serpent King and the Main Antagonist of the Crossover series.

Da Ji

Orochi's strategist.

  • Badass
  • Cool Big Sis - To Himiko
  • Cute Monster Girl
  • Enemy Mine - In the third game, she works with the Resistance to take down the Hydra, which she doesn't acknowledge as the true Orochi. Of course, she's just using this opportunity to try and revive the real Orochi.
  • For the Evulz
  • Improbable Weapon User - Her two levitating marbles.
  • Master of Illusion
  • Metaphorically True - Da Ji never outright lies - she omits important parts of the truth a lot, and can be misleading, but she never says anything that's blatantly false. This may have something to do with how foxes in both Chinese and Japanese myths are unable to lie. That makes her skills as military strategist all the more impressive. Taigong Wang even states that she can't be trusted because she's not being ENTIRELY truthful, but at no point does he claim she's lying, just that she's keeping her own motives largely to herself.
  • Parental Bonus - Her fighting style? Literally playing with big balls. She also has a tramp stamp just above her crotch.
  • Red Right Hand - Her feet are actually paws.
  • Smug Snake
  • Stripperific
  • The Vamp
  • Troll
  • Twin Threesome Fantasy: Invokes this in a Dream Stage, forcing Sun Ce and Da Qiao to fight an imposter Da Qiao, lampshading this trope in the process. Neither Sun Ce or the real Da Qiao are amused.

Taigong Wang


Legendary Chinese strategist. Serves as the head strategist for the good guys.

Fu Xi

The first emperor of China. Sides with Wu.

  • Badass
  • BFS
  • Brother-Sister Incest - With Nu Wa.
  • Nice Guy: Of the Mystics, he's almost devoid of any smugness or haughtiness, and with the exception of Orochi and his followers (for obvious reasons), he's otherwise courteous to a fault.
  • The Obi-Wan - To Sakon Shima.

Nu Wa


The first empress of China, now sided with Wei.

Yoshitsune Minamoto


Legendary samurai and swordsman of the Genji clan, was resurrected by Kiyomori, but defected from the Orochi troops.

Kiyomori Taira

Tyrannical leader of the Heike and sorcerer, was hired by Orochi. He summoned several warriors to aid him.

Sun Wukong

The legendary Monkey King, was summoned by Kiyomori to do Orochi's bidding.


Himiko - WO3 Render.jpg

The Shaman Queen and the first legendary Empress of Japan.

Dodomeki and Gyuki

Demonic mooks serving Orochi, they're now playable characters.

  • The Atoner - In the third game, their dialogue in the camp upon unlocking them indicates that they were press-ganged into serving the Resistance to atone for their crimes. For their part, they aren't exactly complaining.
  • The Brute - Gyuki, who's also the largest playable character ever shown.
  • Carry a Big Stick - Gyuki beats down enemies with a small (compared to him) club.
  • Elite Mooks
  • Full Boar Action - Despite his name, Gyuki looks like a giant boar demon (Gyuki means demon bull).
  • I Am a Humanitarian - Implied by one of Gyuki's line.

Gyuki:" I'll enjoy having you for dinner!"

  • Non-Indicative Name: Dodomeki means "one hundred eyed demon" but he's more like a Cyclops. Also Gyuki, as seen above.
  • Obake - In japanese folklore, Dodomeki is a female wraith with eyes over her arms, while Gyuki (or Ushi Oni) is a demonic beast whose descriprion depends on the source. Furthermore the various Dodomeki mooks in the Japanese version have youkai's names.
  • Power Fist- Dodomeki, who specifically uses Kotaro's moveset.

San Zang

The hero(ine) of Journey to the West.


Yoshitsune's faithful retainer, summoned by the Orochi forces.

  • Badass
  • Gentle Giant
  • Hollywood Cyborg - His giant mechanical arm.
  • Power Fist - Carries a lot of weapons on his back (just like in legends) but his Weapon of Choice is a mechanical wooden arm.
  • Token Good Teammate - In the Dream Battles featuring him, his original plan was to find his lord, Yoshitsune, but since he stumbled upon Da Ji and Himiko first, completely oblivious of who they actually are, he is forced to fight against him.


The Moon Princess of Japanese Mythology. She's trying to use her powers to stop Orochi.

Shuten Douji

The King of the Oni demons, serves as a wild card in Orochi army. He's looking for his identity.


A robotic-like being serving Susano'O.


The God of Storms, bent on stopping Orochi.

Ryu Hayabusa

Member of the Dragon Clan and The Hero of the Ninja Gaiden series. Whisked away to the WO universe while pursuing a demon before the events of Ninja Gaiden 3 and being the evil-hunting Badass ninja he is, set his sights to stop Kiyomori.

  • Cool Sword - His Dragon Sword.
  • Lightning Bruiser - Has the mobility of a Speed-type character, but is actually Power-type, so he shrugs off regular attacks and hits hard.
  • Ninja - But of course!
  • Spinning Piledriver - His first-tier launcher finisher is his Izuna Drop. He can even do it to the huge Gyuki officers. It's every bit as awesome as it sounds.
  • Worthy Opponent - Considers Hanzo as one, since in his time, he probably is more savvy about Ninja history.

The head of the Iga ninja... I couldn't ask for a more worthy opponent.


Jeanne D'Arc

The Maid of Orleans and French heroine. While tending to wounded French soldiers, some of them were whisked away into the WO universe and Jeanne tried saving them, only to stumble there and eventually helps out the Resistance.


Greek Hero of the Trojan war, an invincible warrior whose only weakness is his heel. Stumbling upon the WO universe on his own, he fights for his own glory and sided with Orochi in the same vein of Lu Bu, trying to find worthy fights.

  • Achilles' Heel - Trope Namer, but in this game, averted. You can't hit his heel, but he goes down just fine if you pound him enough in any body part.
  • Badass - Of course, he is the bonafide Greek Badass, and he'll make sure you don't forget it.
  • Blood Knight - Serves Da Ji merely for the enjoyment of getting blood on his sword. The guy's possibly an even bigger blood knight than Lu Bu!
  • Charles Atlas Superpower: Ginchiyo and Yoshihiro both struggle to block a one-handed attack from him. Justified, as he DOES have a divine origin.
  • Jerkass - Achilles does NOT get along with anyone in-story. While under the game system he does have characters with which he has affinity, in-story he's an insufferable, condescending asshole.
  • Luckily, My Shield Will Protect Me - One of the few characters to use a shield. He can block with it, but it's no different than blocking with any other character, it's merely cosmetic.
  • Mighty Glacier - Not as fast as other characters, but he hits like a freight train and takes it like a man.
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed - Based physically upon the Brad Pitt portrayal in Troy.
  • Talking to Himself - Possibly, since he is voiced by the same guy who voiced Cao Pi.
