Best Dynasty Warriors Characters

The Top Ten

Zhou Tai

Huge AoE damage for taking checkpoints, and his Musou attacks inflict very high single target damage for nuking generals.

I have the 5 star and it is amazing

Why him

Coolest character

Lu Bu Lu Bu (onyomi: Ryo Fu) from Dynasty Warriors is a general of the late Han Dynasty who is infamous for his many betrayals in the central plains. Like many warlords of the era, he attempted to establish himself as an independent power before he met his end against Cao Cao's forces. Romance of the Three ...read more.

I love lu bu, he is the most feared character of dynasty warriors ever.

If dynasty warriors was a movie or anime or a story lu bu will never lose

The most formidable warrior in history, he contested the 3 sworn brothers: Liu Bei, Zhang Fei and Guan Yu for more than 100 rounds. He defeated Liu Bei and overpowered him in no time. He killed Dong Zhou only with 1 swing of his weapon. In the actual game, his starting skills are higher than all the other characters available. He has an unique ability of becoming invincible. In the description of him, it said that he is the strongest warrior at that time. Just with a few swings, he can wipe out an entire army. Lu Bu is simply the best character in dynasty warriors.

Clearly too op every time you fight him and according to history he was the most feared

Guan Yu

In dynasty warriors 8 whenever I use a single strong attack his weapon gets imbuee with fire and deal great damage love his moves and he is quite powerful great fighter.. God of War

2nd strongest char

Loved him since dynasty warrior 3. His moveset always seems the strongest without losing too much speed.

Guan yu is the best of the best! I ever played as guan yu with my friend (he use zhao yun) we both lv 25 and we just kill lu bu very easly. And then I ever play in a map with only wu people in there ( I forget that map's name) and then I met sun quan! Okay, in this case I already became lv 50' but he just kill everyone swinging his blade like a boss and kill sun quan alone. I mean, he is just awesome!

P. S: he is the very first guy in dynasty warrior I use. So I really love him!

Ma Chao

Speed and strength and range most bad ass in my opinion and he's just a bad ass character.

The splendid ma chao a sight to truly gaze upon

Here comes from strategist of mt. Ding jun, marquis wei, the governor and valiant of liang

Zhao Yun

Please he deserves to die

Here comes the Dragon of Chang Shan!

I love his fighting style and character design.

The best general

Xiahou Dun

Xiahou dun is the best he can beat guan you and Zhang fei and he is the one who killed Zhang jiao in the game dian wei and lubu fight and they are draw. In the game xiahou dun is hunting tigers and he encountered dian wei and fought dian wei lost to him

Badass simply

Xiahou Fun is the best,he is very fast with his blade and is able to kill several enemies at once.with xiahou dun fun I killed 600 in the first level and with guan yu I killed 350.

He looks cool. he wields a massive blade. he’s a great general, tactician and a legendary solider.
He removed an arrow from his skull with his eye attached to it and kept fighting.
He lived longer than most and fought more wars than most and was always deadfast and loyal.
He crossed blades with most of the greatest warriors and beat most and drew with the rest.

Zhuge Liang

There is no greater weapon than a prepared mind. So, what is better than The most genius strategist in chinese history.

Zhou Yu

Zhou Yu truly the master of strategy of that period. Even Cao Cao and Liu Bei feared him. If he had lived longer, he would have given Cao Cao or Sima Yi a run for his money. Or perhaps Wu would have lasted longer that it originally had. Zhuge Liang can't compare to him (unless you are talking about the Romance of the Three Kingdoms portrayal Zhuge Liang).

He is superior to Zhuge Liang in actual history. They downplayed him in Romance of the Three Kingdoms making Zhuge Liang better than him when he's not. Zhou Yu is the better general and strategist who really came up with the plan to defeat Cao Cao at Chibi.

Intelligent and good fighter. Cares about his comrades. carried the load after Sun Ce

"Hero of ChiBi" That is all.

Zhang Liao

Hail the 'mighty blade of Wei'!

A level-headed general who searches the 'Path of the Warrior', he remains fearless even in death. While being physically stronger, Lu Bu was frightened of his impending death while Zhang Liao accepted his death like a man. Even when outnumbered 7000 to 100000, his fearlessness changed the tides of He Fei. He had Sun Quan wagging his tail between legs.

In addition, his character design is stylish especially those hats of his. His twin axes combined with his EX 1 makes him unstoppable.

Best fighter

He is one of the overpowered characters in the game. Not only that, but his all of his fighting style can be used in real life. This is hard to come by, mainly because other characters use magic and/or fly around. Or if you look a Lu Bu with his "fire" in Dynasty Warriors 8, not realistic at all.

His courage and valor at Hefei should be rewarded with 1st place. He's probably one of Wei's best men... #ZhangLiao

Jiang Wei

He's such a tragic hero and is so fun to play as. I know people don't like his voice but I really like it. He's one of my favorite characters ever.

The Contenders

Cao Cao

Best general

Via execution so not rly

the GOAT

Killed lu bu enough said

Zuo Ci
Zhang He

He's amazing

Gan Ning

Gan Ning is a true pal. Just look at his interactions with Ling Tong!

Just a beast

Best in DW 2-6 when he runs for his Musou. Still awesome Afterwards. Been strong and reliable.

He is extremely fast in DW6
He reminds me 6ix9ine
I like 6ix9ine

Zhang Fei

People mostly underrate him because of his alcoholism and "stupidity" and other stuff that ALLEGEDLY he did.
But actually he is awesome - he is very powerful, he is funny guy and not such a dull beggar like most character are. That's why I love him.
Unfortunately, KOEI by some reason hated him and so they want to see him the same way by the people, it's not hard to see.

Sima Yi

The man who lied and manipulated his way to Jin winning everything, while maniacally laughing along the way, surely he was no IMBECILE

"What a miserable world this is, where we are forced to watch while idiots erupt in hysterics"

The best strategist, in the end he manipulated wei and allowed his family to rose to power.

Everyone else is just an imbecile.

Xiaoqiao

I like her along with her older sister Da Qiao, she's very energetic, confidence, and really pretty
I love Two Qiaos!

Ling Tong

Dynasty 5 best low level charachter (before unlocking 4th move)

This nibba killed me with 2 hits, I respect this one

Dude uses nunchuka or a 3 section staff ( was made popular I the classic kung fu move "Shaolin 36 Chambers" and has an attitude that can relate many people lol. He's alil effeminate looking but only in looks and it's not that big of a deal. He's nasty on the field and one of my favorite wu generals

Da Qiao

Mature 18 year old wrecking an entire army with fans.

This girl is awesome, she knows how to kick butt. She has definitely got one of the best personalities and yeah I know she's not involved a lot but she is young. Her relationship with her and Sun-Ce has to be hands down one of the best relationships in DW ever! She really knows how to fight and would do anything to protect her confident little sister

Sun Ce

If Sun Ce lived longer, together with Zhou Yu then Wu would have been at the peak of greatness. Plus he would have been the Alexander the Great of his age if he didn't die so soon. This guy conquered much of China's territory quickly at a young age. He wouldn't have been the Little Conqueror otherwise. He should have been higher.

He was the original badass of Wu. If only he lived longer with Zhou Yu, Wu would have been greater since Sun Ce conquered areas in a short period of time at such a young age.

My personal favorite

Sun Shang Xiang
Zhu Rong
Liu Bei

He is literally the hero of the story.

Zhen Ji

A gorgeous woman who speaks her mind, I love the way she slaps soldiers into oblivion. Her flute is legendary.

Diao Chan

I started with DW4 and I'll admit, I wasn't the biggest fan of hers but once 6 hit and she got the whip she's so much better at crowd control, plus she dances! Lol

Cao PI

Why isn't he #1

Dian Wei

He wields a giant axe. Come on!

Wei Yan

Wei yan is awesome in so many ways, he has an amazing outfit, weapon, move set, story and one of if not the most unique personalities in the whole game

Xu Shu

He's like a ninja. Automatically makes him awesome.

Ult hits everything and murders anyone withing a quarter mile of you.

Wang Yuanji

How can this throwing knives lady on 30th place? She deserves a higher spot!

The best

Lianshi

Yueying

Best female fighter

Lu Xun

He's fast and very powerful if you know how to use him right.

He was the original dual-blade user.

Taishi Ci
Sun Jian
Pang Tong

He is hilarious, my favorite are his quotes
"Hey I defeated an officer! "
"Good for you! "

The Fledgling Phoenix is the best character hands down.

He's hilarious. My favorite strategist.

Sima Zhao

Dude I love Sima Zhao he's a tank and I love his fighting style. SHOULD BE NUMBER 1

Sima Shi

Heir to the Jin empire, anyone?

If his weapon was better he'd be way higher on this list. He is god level in DW8 Empires.

Cao Ren
Bao Sanniang
Magoichi Saika
Xu Huang

So underrated! one of wei's top five generals

Xun Yu
Lu Meng
Sun Quan
Meng Huo
