Strategies are special skills introduced in Warriors Orochi 2 that provide various benefits for the player's allies on the battlefield. By fulfilling certain conditions, a character will automatically execute his or her strategy to help change the flow of battle to their army's advantage. Each one has a different effect as do the means in triggering them. Most of the time, the type of strategy a character has is determined by their personal characteristics and talents. Properly executing these strategies at the right time and place is essential since they only work once per character for every fight.
