Best Dynasty Warriors Characters


The Top Ten

1 Zhou Tai


2 Lu Bu Lu Bu

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.

Lu Bu's strength is overwhelming, he's just invicible. He also has a very interesting back story and history. He is really easy to play, don't need really need to do any combos to kill his enemies. Just a few swings can kill an officer.

Really easy to play, even though I'm a beginner.

Lu Bu is a amazing warrior abeles to destroy orchi in on hit

3 Guan Yu

2nd strongest char

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!

I love guan yu as he spins his blade so bossly guan yuthan lubu

4 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

5 Zhao Yun

Here comes the Dragon of Chang Shan!

Please he deserves to die

I love his fighting style and character design. - killerbees66

6 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.

7 Cao Cao Cao Cao

Killed lu bu enough said

8 Zhou Yu

"Hero of ChiBi" That is all.

9 Zhuge Liang
10 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.

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

He had 700 troops against WU's 100000 that should make him number 1

The Contenders

11 Jiang Wei 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.

12 Zhang He

He's amazing

13 Zuo Ci
14 Gan Ning

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

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

15 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

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

Everyone else is just an imbecile.

16 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.

17 Liu Bei Liu Bei
18 Sun Ce Sun Ce
19 Sun Shang Xiang Sun Shang Xiang
20 Diao Chan 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
