Dynasty Warriors 8: Extreme Legends’ Lu Lingqi Is Both Lethal And Pretty

By Ishaan . November 25, 2013 . 10:00am

Lu Bu’s daughter, Lu Lingqi, will be making her first appearance as a playable character in Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends, and while she’s never appeared in a Dynasty Warriors game before, her debut is rather stylish.



Lu Lingqi uses two cross-halberds in the game that she can swing separately in each hand, or combine to use as a giant shuriken, which can either be used for melee combat or thrown at enemies. You can watch a gameplay clip of her above.



Meanwhile, Zhu Ran—also making his playable debut here from what I can tell—is a little bit more straightforward with his bow-and-arrow, although that doesn’t stop him from using it in interesting ways, like firing arrows in mid-air. You can watch a clip his moves above this paragraph.


Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends will be released for PlayStation 3 and Vita this week, on November 28th.

    Lu Lingqi is a pretty cool chick, i’m glad she’s in the game and has that old weapon lu bu used to use.

  • fairysun

    I think I got a new favorite female character.

  • MrJechgo

    Lethal and pretty, or pretty lethal?

  • sakusakusakura_nyo

    It would be pretty intimidating to date a girl who’s father is the mighty Lu Bu.

    • Rayhan PromisedGallery

      Can anybody provide my daughter with a decent date!!!?

      • Sardorim

        Watch Lu Bu order Zhang Liao to tail Lu Lingqi on all her dates so he can have Diao Chan time while ensuring Lu Lingqi remains his pure little daughter.

  • FitzpatrickPhillips

    Poor thing must never have guys go for her. Ain’t nobody trying to get their heads chopped off.

    • Sardorim

      I dunno. Xingcai can be pretty scary and Guan Ping has a crush on her while Liu Shan marries her in the DW games.

  • Riseabovethesky

    Lu Lingqi and Diao Chan, best of friends!

    • Sardorim

      Hah! That’s a good one!

  • Sardorim

    Really hope they have Zhang Liao take up a mentor role for Lu Lingqi.

  • Warboss Aohd

    ….so when iz dat Yellow Turban who joined Shu an’ fought during almost da ENTIRE conflict get to be playable?

  • Göran Isacson

    Kind of cool that they have her use that double-halberd-shuriken thing that Lu Bu had before everyone agreed that they’d rather have him use his classic weapon. It was a cool idea, but Lu Bu just… IS the halberd, you know? Nice to see it get some new use.

  • Dark Zerato

    Lu Lingqi is just badass as her father. Really like her cross blade.

  • Vash bane
