Samurai Warriors 2: Xtreme Legends (戦国無双2 猛将伝, Sengoku Musou 2: Moushouden) is the Xtreme Legends expansion for Samurai Warriors 2. It features new Story Modes, new stages, and a new charge attack for each character (usually dubbed by players as C5 or C9).


  • Characters can now level up to 70 rather than the previous 50; the bodyguards' maximum level is now 30.
  • Some voice actors were changed for the new recorded lines.
  • Alternate colors are added for each character though most of these previously appeared in Empires. New characters also have alternate victory pose animations and quotes during their story modes.
  • The game also introduced an Orb system, which allows weapon customization.
  • Personal skills can now be purchased from the shop and can be individually collected for each character.
  • Like most other Xtreme Legends titles, a fifth weapon can also be obtained. The base attack power is the same as the fourth weapons.
  • For better or worse, the "Demon" element now does damage based on set percentages of the enemy's life bar. If an enemy's life bar is long and full, their life will drain quickly. On the other hand, elemental damage becomes pretty transparent when they hit lower life.
  • Several Level 3 Musou Attack effects have been modified. For example, the shockwaves in Nagamasa's Level 3 Musou Attack now pin opponents in their places rather than knocking them back.


Choosing to Import info from the Samurai Warriors 2 disk allows all characters to be available for Story Mode and unlocks the title's previous Modes.


An endless mission driven mode made exclusively for the expansion. The player can choose any character as their main hero. Using this hero, they can perform odd jobs for various daimyo, the shogun, villagers, and various other NPC characters. Many players consider this the fastest way to gain levels, earn money, learn skills, and obtain Orbs. Difficulty will gradually increase as the player progresses, meaning that opponents will also get tougher.

If the player stays loyal to a particular lord, they can choose to serve them and help them unite the land. The other ending requires the player to collect ten precious swords from the missions they do.

Each officer has a special skill he/she can use. Players can learn up to 4 Mercenary skills, depending on the personal level.
