Best Dynasty Warriors Characters

The Top Ten
1 Zhou Tai

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

2 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

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.

3 Guan Yu

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!

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

4 Ma Chao

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

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

5 Zhao Yun

In history, he is the strongest warrior of the Three Kingdom era, even above Lu Bu. Only reason why he isn't named as such is because since Liu Bei met Guan Yu and Zhang Fei first and are sworn brothers, Liu Bei would always send Zhao Yun on the most difficult of missions and then send Guan Yu and Zhang Fei in shortly after to reap the rewards. Due to this reason, Zhao Yun never really got to put his name and abilities out there like Lu Bu and Guan Yu, etc.

I love his fighting style and character design.

Here comes the Dragon of Chang Shan!

6 Xiahou Dun

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.

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

7 Zhuge Liang

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

8 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.

9 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.

10 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.

The Contenders
11 Zuo Ci
12 Cao Cao
13 Zhang He
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 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.

16 Sima Yi

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

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

Everyone else is just an imbecile.

17 Ling Tong

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

18 Xiaoqiao

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

19 Da Qiao

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

Mature 18 year old wrecking an entire army with fans.

20 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.

21 Zhu Rong

She's such a badass! Calls the shots in her marriage and dominates on the battlefield! Such a queen! Plus she was the only woman in the OG novel who fought, so her badassery carries over in all versions of the story!

22 Sun Shang Xiang
23 Liu Bei

He is literally the hero of the story.

24 Diao Chan
25 Dian Wei
