Hey, as you may be already aware of, the Warriors Orochi series of games feature several characters from Chinese mythology ranging from Daji to Hundun. Something that however sticks out from these mythological figures is how Sanzang from Journey to the West is depicted as female. According to the Koei Wiki this is due to how the original rendition of Journey of the West in Japanese made Sanzang's gender vague. Do you know if this has any truth to it?

First of all ,Sanzang is based Tang Sanzangin in journey to the west and he is a guy in most chinese cultures, I know I was raised in China for 11 years, but to be fair the journey to the west was based on a true story, and converted with more excitement. The story mostly surrounds Tang Sanzangin being kidnap by demons, to eat his flesh and become immortal, the reason I think sangzang is a female is because women are mosty kidnaped? I guess?

Nice to see someone else visiting Gaijin's page who knows so much about Journey to the West. I guess I should have mentioned being a fan of the book itself earlier. Making Sanzang attractive in Warriors Orochi itself makes sense seeing as in Journey to the West he is described as attractive. It is also worth noting that while Sanzang was kidnapped repeatedly by demons to be eaten in hopes his flesh will grant immortality, he does come across a female demon or two who try to seduce or marry him.

Though, admittedly, I don't really see what you mean by Sanzang being depicted as female due to women mostly being kidnapped. The reason in Journey in the West for Sanzang being captured so often was not due to gender, but demons wanting to gain something from him and Sanzang being ill fitted to defend himself, hence him needing his three disciples (Sun Wukong in particular) to protect him on his journey.
