Released in Japan as Shin Sangoku Musō 5 Special, the PS2 version of Dynasty Warriors 6. Six characters that originally had clone move sets from other character (Ma Chao, Yue Ying, Cao Pi, Zhang He, Taishi Ci, and Ling Tong) now have their own weapons and moves and are given their own Musou Mode. Other than those six new stories, the game also features five completely new stages. The new weapons go as follow:
  • Ma Chao now has a great sword similar to Fu Xi's rather than a spear
  • Cao Pi's short sword is exchanged for a longsword
  • Zhang He gets his trademark claws instead of a spear
  • Taishi Ci also switched from a spear to his trademark rods
  • Ling Tong's three section staff replace his halberd
  • Yue Ying switches from a longbow to a bladed crossbow
The game also has gone through various minor changes, and had dueling and swimming removed. Water bodies are now shallow enough to cross by foot.

In addition to these changes, the PSP version has Meng Huo, who was missing from the game but added in Dynasty Warriors 6: Empires, as a playable character.
