-_- Dynasty warriors is based on historical events. All of it's characters are public domain.

of course! Lu Bu did wore a black armor with huge red Feather just like he did in dynasty Warrior 6-7,(not) I know it's base on historical events, I own a copy of the "Romance of the three kingdoms" those skins looks exactly like the one in the Koei game, therefore the question, was it a collaboration or something?

Point being, since they are public domain, there's no gain by collaborating, rather Riot would probably have to pay something (also, Japanese companies are notorious for issues with fans outside of their borders).

Sun Wu kong is a God so yes public domain, his suit in Smite is completly different from the one in other games, Look at Guan Yu in smite, he's different enough that you know he wasn't inspire by DW but by actual statues of him , but here Xin looks exactly like Zhao Yun from DW7
