Fu Xi (onyomi: Fukki) is often known as one of the Three Sovereigns in Chinese history, or one of the lords who started civilization. His reign was said to have prospered like no other before it. In Chinese mythology, he is known as a half-human, half-serpent deity who is Nuwa's brother and husband. Within various mythological tales, nearly all divine beings kowtow before him and treat him with the highest pinnacle of respect.
During his Dynasty Warriors debut, both he and Nuwa are only available in Free Mode. His character revamp for the Warriors Orochi series is considered his permanent Warriors counterpart. He uses the same attire, voice, and persona for his later appearances in the Dynasty Warriors series.

Role in Games[edit | edit source]
- "You're the man, Fu Xi!"
- ~~San Zang; Warriors Orochi 2
Warriors Orochi[edit | edit source]
In Orochi's scenario, Fu Xi first appears in the world with Nu Wa and Taigong Wang in an attempt to stop Orochi. With other fellow mystics, he acts as one of the army's secondary leaders. His contribution during the battle is conjuring mindless doubles of Orochi and Da Ji to attack the serpent army. In the end, the trio are defeated and forced to recuperate.
During the main story in Warriors Orochi 2, he appears at Lou Sang Village to help Sakon and Zhang Jiao against Dong Zhuo. Pleased with Sakon's cunning, he leaves once the battle is finished. He later appears to help Sakon's army rescue Kanetsugu in the midst of a fire attack. He warns them that it is only an illusion and cuts off the source. As Sakon draws near him, Fu Xi will explain that he was testing the mortal and will evaluates the threat that Kiyomori poses. He continues to observe the strategist's plans when he becomes a part of the Samurai forces. When they successfully slay Orochi X, he is the last person to see Sakon leave.
He has an additional dream stage with his mystic comrades in Musou 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, he spots the fire attack movements issued by Zhou Yu and defeats the accompanying Zhu Ran and Mitsunari. He is additionally amused with Nobunaga's confidence against him.
Content to leave humanity to their fate, Fu Xi returned to the mystic realm after Orochi's second death. Sensing the serpent army's reemergence, however, he descended once more to support Nobunaga's forces. After the coalition beat him at Honnōji, Fu Xi is impressed and immediately allies his allegiance to them in the heat of battle. He and Nuwa later defy their leader Susano'o and lend their power to save humanity from the crumbling dimensional world.
In Ultimate, the heroes travel back to Fu Xi's further past before Orochi was born with the hopes of finding a way to defeat Tamamo, when he talks about the late Heavenly Emperor, if he was still alive to stop this endless madness. They soon learn Orochi's past, who was in fact none other than his best friend, Yinglong, whom Tamamo manipulates into the Serpent King, and gain the Heavenly Emperor's trust through their adventure. He is last seen alongside Kaguya and the other Sovereigns, and together, they send the humans back to their respective times after Kyūbi's defeat.
Unlike the other Mystics, Fu Xi was stranded in the Mystic Realm at Warriors Orochi 4. Guarding the entrance of the Mystic Realm, Fu Xi blocks off any potential intruders as well as any disturbance that threatens the Mystic Army. When Sun Wukong, allied with the Asgardians, attempts to attack the gateway to the Mystic Realm, Fu Xi is finally able to exit the realm to the mortal realm to aid his allies.
After the defeat of Kiyomori and Sun Wukong, Fu Xi is filled in with the details during his absence by Kaguya and Sanzang, and he joins the Coalition to fight Odin. He assists the Coalition in slaying Orochi, bidding Yinglong farewell once more.
Receiving a letter from Taigong Wang, he arrived to meet the boy, only for both to realize that this was a trick by the Asgardian forces on them. Fighting through the deception and rescuing the other mystics that fell for the deceit, Fu Xi begins growing concerned at the power that Loki and Odin have in store.
Dynasty Warriors[edit | edit source]
Fu Xi is an optional playable character in Shin Sangoku Musou Multi Raid 2 once players have accumulated enough Community Points to purchase him. The same game includes a bonus downloadable scenario in which he and Nu Wa test humanity's might and integrity.
He later acts as one of the star characters for the Kunlun Mountains update in Dynasty Warriors: Online, as players can obtain parts of his costume for their avatars as well as his weapon.
Character Information[edit | edit source]
Personality[edit | edit source]
Implied to have originally been an enthusiastic and brave youth, Fu Xi matures into a resolute and debonair individual. He is usually modest of his divine origin and prefers to be a little more practical in his methods, sparing usage of his sorcery unless he fights against other supernatural beings. Compared to his mystic comrades, he has an early appreciation for humanity yet is hesitant to join them immediately. He feels they need to prove their worth to him and Fu Xi tries to play the part of observer like other mystics. However, he lacks the patience to stick to the role for long and is eager to join the fight himself. Within the Asian script, his rough lines have a slight tone noting his regal origins and age, and uses the "washi" pronoun.
Fu Xi teases Taigong Wang as a young boy, which implies that he is much older than the young man in the ancient world. Based on his dialogue with Nuwa, he is the stronger of the two cultured mystics. Therefore, if he encounters her as an enemy, Fu Xi promises to hold back for her. Other than his fellow mystics, Fu Xi shares friendly ties with Sakon. He is amused by the warrior's vigor and wit, feeling proud of the general he chose to watch over. The other human who captures his interest is the surreal Nobunaga. Amongst his foes, he shares special quotes with Da Ji and Keiji. He shares additional conversations with Susano'o, Nezha, and Kaguya in the third title.
In Ultimate, he is also known to be close with Yinglong, acting has his more open minded foil. Due to the events of learn of Orochi's origins, Fu Xi too also has a determined and responsible side to himself despite his jolly front, as he still carries the guilt of not being able to save the Heavenly Emperor in the original timeline to this day.
4 gives him additional dialogues with Huang Gai, who is embarrassed to share his stories to the older mystic
Character Symbolism[edit | edit source]
Fu Xi's third weapon is originally named after the Four Gods. His sword embodies the power of all four divine beasts with each strike.
His fourth weapon is named after him in terms of the origins of his said name; one account of his birth has his mother being impregnated purely from a god's footstep. Substituting for Suiren, a legendary inventor of fire, he became the emperor. Whilst in rule, he invented the Ba gua, used a spider's silk to teach people to fish, and domesticated animals for cooking. In a few accounts, his surname was actually Feng. Due to the people frequently bowing and groveling (伏) to worship him, Fu Xi became his well-known nickname. Other names are said to have been created in honor of his contributions to the people.
His fifth weapon in Asian ports mentions the term Fengshen, which literally means to assign ranks to gods. When paired with the sword, it means he is judging his foes and striking them down for an eternal place in the afterlife. As a side note, the term is popularly known from the novel, Fengshen Yanyi. Within the tale, one of Jiang Ziya's primary objectives for participating in the war against King Zhou is to assign gods from the warriors who fall in battle.

Dynasty Warriors: Strikeforce[edit | edit source]
Fu Xi mainly uses the large blade moveset in this title.
Fighting Style[edit | edit source]
Dynasty Warriors[edit | edit source]
Fu Xi's moveset is also available for edit characters in the Dynasty Warriors series. Fu Xi focuses on slower attacks with better crowd control; his broad swings can cover a huge range and are also useful in dueling officers. His C3 allows him daze his opponent to give him more room for attacking. His C4 is a good move to control the crowds by scattering peons, and his C6 performs a stab that is good for one-on-one combat.
Fu Xi's C1 in Dynasty Warriors 4 is useful both in crowds and against a single officer. This move is removed and replaced in Dynasty Warriors 5 to allow for easier juggling along with clearing crowds. His C5 has some of the greatest damage potential of his entire moveset in the fourth game when coupled with a Vorpal Orb.
Warriors Orochi[edit | edit source]
Warriors Orochi 2 builds upon the strengths he has in Dynasty Warriors with an added defense against interrupts while attacking. Good elements to fuse on his weapons are Agility, Flash, Bolt, Slay, and Range.
However, the third title improves his R1 Type Action by a notable amount, as Fu Xi in both the vanilla version of the installment and in the Ulitmate expansion is the only character who can activate elemental and absorption attributes on both grounded and airborne Type Actions; while this often doesn't give him the power to one-shot most generals with ease, it gives him a very large amount of sustain.
