The first character is the spirit or essence of a warrior. The second character means soldier, officer, or official. This character is also used appropriately enough to describe a piece of a chess game. This can also be translated as soldier, cavalier, palace guard, or samurai and sometimes as knight. I've occasionally seen this translated as strong man or tough man (gender not necessarily implied).
By far, this is the most common way to write warrior in Chinese characters, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja.
Note: In Japanese, this is Bushi, as in Bushido.
This is an alternate title for a warrior or samurai in Japanese. It is often romanized as "Musha".
The literal meaning of these Kanji is "war person", "military person", or "martial person".
This is "warrior soul" or "warrior spirit" in Japanese.
Here's the breakdown of the Kanji:
戦士 (senshi) warrior; soldier; combatant; fighter.
魂 (damashii/tamashii) soul; spirit; can sometimes mean "ghost".
This means "Warrior for Peace" (warrior who fights for peace) in Chinese.
Note, this is not the same thing as "peaceful warrior".

This can be translated as the warrior's spirit or warrior's soul. The first two characters can be translated as "warrior" or literally "brave soldier/man" although some will translate this word as "hero". Therefore, this is also how to say "heroic spirit".
The second two characters mean vigor, vitality, drive, spirit, mind, heart, mental essence and psychological component. Basically "your soul".
We have two versions of this phrase. The only difference is the first two and last two characters are swapped. The version here suggests that you admire or like the idea of the spirit of a warrior. The other version suggests that you are the warrior or hero.

Note: This title is best for Chinese and old Korean. It does make sense in Japanese, but is not a common or natural Kanji combination in Japanese.

This is the Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja for brave warrior, a brave person, hero, or brave man.
In Japanese, this can be a given name, Yuuji.
This literally means: [Just as] soldiers/warriors [are valued for their] quality and not [just] for quantity, [so] generals [are valued] for their tactics, not [just] for [their] bravery.
This is a proverb that follows one about how it is better to have warriors of quality, rather than just a large quantity of warriors in your army/force.

This reads, "Warrior Heart". This is more a Japanese title than Chinese, but it is understood in both languages.
This means "Peaceful Warrior" in Chinese. This does in fact sound like an oxymoron in Chinese - but many of you have asked for this special title.
Note, this is not the same thing as "warrior for peace".
See Also... Peace
This can be read as "Peaceful Warrior" or "Warrior for Peace" in Japanese. This sounds like an oxymoron in Japanese, so it's a weird title. Expect Japanese people to be perplexed when they see it.
平和 (heiwa) peace; harmony.
の (no) possessive particle.
武士 (bushi) warrior; samurai; soldier.
This is an unusual title that can be translated two ways. The most common is probably "daredevil warrior". However, the first character means demon, ghost, or soul of the departed. Therefore, it can kind of mean soul of a warrior, or demon warrior.
This title is Japanese only, and should not be used if your audience is Chinese.
This is not a commonly-used title in Chinese, but sometimes used in Martial arts and military context to refer to a warrior who seems to always be fully aware, enlightened, knowledgeable, noble, and just.
The first two characters are a word that means: to awaken; to come to realize; awakened to the truth; the truth dawns upon one; scales fall from the eyes; to become aware.
The last two characters mean warrior, but can also refer to a samurai, soldier, or fighter.
This character is the essence or spirit of a warrior. This character is part of the word "wu shu" which is sometimes translated as "martial arts" or "kung fu".
In more modern speech and other context, this can mean military, martial, warlike, fierce, and perhaps violent, but usually as a prefix for a longer word or phrase.
This means, "Warrior of God" or "Soldier of God" in Japanese.
This means "warrior of the heavenly realm" in Chinese, old Korean Hanja, and Japanese Kanji.
This is also known as Narayana in Buddhism.
This is an old Japanese proverb about the value of the word of a warrior. Here's a couple versions of how this can be translated:
A warrior's single word is as unchanging and reliable as gold and steel.
A warrior's promise is as dependable as gold, and his [scabbard contains] untarnished steel (a sword).
Note: Sometimes this phrase is written as 男子の一言、金鉄の如し (danshi no ichigon kintetsu no gotoshi)
This is a generic title for "Dragon Warrior". Just as in English, it's a bit ambiguous. It can mean one who fights against dragons, or the title of a warrior himself (imagine a warrior with a dragon symbol on his chest).
This is another version of "Dragon Warrior". It's still a bit ambiguous. This one reads more like "Dragon Fighter" than "Dragon Warrior". Perhaps you can also translate this one as, "One who fights like a dragon".
This "Dragon Warrior" is specifically one who fights against dragons. This can also be read as "Dragon Fighter".
This is a strange title for a wall scroll, but it may suit you if you see yourself as a warrior monk. This title is not commonly used but will be understood in both Chinese and Japanese. It can also be read as "armed monks".
This means "Heavenly Warrior", or "Hero of Heaven", in Chinese, old Korean, and Japanese.
Often used in Buddhist context.
This Chinese title, Wusheng means, Saint of War.
This is usually a reference to Guan Yu (關羽), also known as Guan Gong (關公).
Some Chinese soldiers still pray to Wusheng for protection. They would especially do this before going into battle.
This is a Japanese title that means, "Spiritual Warrior".
The first Kanji means spiritual.
The second Kanji means war, warfare, or battle.
The third Kanji means soldier, officer, man or pawn.

Professional calligraphers are getting to be hard to find these days.
Instead of drawing characters by hand, the new generation in China merely type roman letters into their computer keyboards and pick the character that they want from a list that pops up.
There is some fear that true Chinese calligraphy may become a lost art in the coming years. Many art institutes in China are now promoting calligraphy programs in hopes of keeping this unique form of art alive.
Even with the teachings of a top-ranked calligrapher in China, my calligraphy will never be good enough to sell. I will leave that to the experts.
The same calligrapher who gave me those lessons also attracted a crowd of thousands and a TV crew as he created characters over 6-feet high. He happens to be ranked as one of the top 100 calligraphers in all of China. He is also one of very few that would actually attempt such a feat.
