Nu Wa is a playable bonus character in Dynasty Warriors 3. She is based on a Serpent Goddess in Chinese mythology who was the sister and wife of Fu Xi, as well as the first empress of China. Like Fu Xi, she is only available in Free Mode during her debut. Using her Warriors Orochi attire, she appears as an optional character in Dynasty Warriors: Strikeforce 2 and can only be played when players have accumulated enough Community Points for her.

In the Dynasty Warriors series, she is 18 years old and her height is 161 cm (a little over 5'3"). Her height in the Warriors Orochi series is 168 cm (5'6").

Role in Games[edit | edit source]

In Orochi's scenario, Nu Wa first appears in the world with Fu Xi and Taigong Wang to stop Orochi. With other mystics, she acts as one of the army's secondary leaders. In the end, the trio are defeated and forced to recuperate.

During the main story in Warriors Orochi 2, she has already made herself an honored member of Wei's forces. Whilst in their ranks, she tests Cao Cao's leadership and worries about his growing ambition. Her concerns are put to rest once she realizes that he is more human than she previously thought. She entrusts the fate of the land into humanity's hands.

She has an additional dream stage with her mystic comrades in Warriors Orochi Z as they face the heroes from both time periods at once to prove the might of mystics. During the battle at Chi Bi, she gladly faces Zhao Yun and Yukimura's charge, impressed by their fierce bravado. She also shares some words to Cao Cao regarding the inner strength found within humanity.

Character Info[edit | edit source]

Personality[edit | edit source]

Not willing to disclose herself to others easily, she is proud of her immortality and condescends any who stand against her.

Fighting Style[edit | edit source]

Dynasty Warriors[edit | edit source]

Nu Wa fights using a rapier and as such most of her strikes are very fast, very precise stabbing motions; with a few slashes in between combos. The result of this is a great character for dueling, but with wide openings in crowd control. On top of this, her combo strings are very linear and prone to missing without proper aim and careful timing thanks to a rather narrow striking zone. However, with time and mastery of these nuances, she becomes a force to be reckoned with. Nu Wa's moveset is also available for edit characters.

Warriors Orochi[edit | edit source]

Using a combination of her R1 specials and air dash ability, Nu Wa can unleash very long combos in Warriors Orochi 2.
