Introduction - Welcome to Dynasty Warriors 5ฎ
__________________________________________________________________

"My Kingdom.  My Life." 

"The place is the vast lands of China.  The time is the turn of the 2nd 
Century.  This is the story of the Three Kingdoms, which has been passed 
down for generations.  A story of Peace, and Chaos.  Prosperity, and 
Decline.  A story of brave Heroes, and Treacherous Villains.  Witness the 
tales of these warriors, for the stories of yesterday are the history of 
tomorrow."
	

Welcome all new players, both to the series and to the game itself.  If 
you're new to the series, the main menu can be quite intimidating, I know 
it was to me when I first got DW4 (good game I recommend this as well for 
new players.)  This game, although not all too different from those in 
the past, brings in a lot of new elements from Koei.  New characters, 
which is brought into almost all of their newest games, new arsenal of 
weapons, new attacks, longer attacks, stronger attacks, redesigned levels 
and battlefields, unique storylines for each character as well as new 
items, bodyguard system and much more.

I would also like to take this moment to show a legend for later in the 
game:

S (S1 - S6) are Square attacks

Charge is Triangle

True Musou is the stronger Musou, (Musou used with bodyguard, Item, Musou 
Rage or Almost dead.

Note: All Walkthroughs for Musou Modes, unless otherwise stated, were 
completed in Normal difficulty.  All Fourth weapons were attained in Free 
mode.

Initial Characters- Who's Who and What Do They Do? 
__________________________________________________________________

The game starts off with 18 warriors to choose from, 6 in all Wu, Shu and 
Wei. There are no officers in unaligned forces, they all must be 
unlocked.  Each includes 5 warriors from games past, and one new officer 
to play as.  All officers' weapons start with 4 consecutive attacks.

-------------------------------------------------
	Wu - "Warriors who fought for family..."
"Blessed with rich and fertile lands, the Kingdom of Wu strives to bring 
peace to the chaotic land.  Descendants of the legendary strategist Sun 
Tzu (historically impossible to prove though) the strength of their 
family bond remains strong in the face of adversity.  Will this family of 
warriors from Jiang Dong be able to realize their burning ambition? Only 
time will tell."


------------------------------
-Zhou Yu
------------------------------


Brilliant strategist, responsible for Chi Bi, and skilled in literature 
and music.  Has been friends with Sun Ce since he was a young, and 
sometimes becomes frustrated and loses his cool.
                         
Musou Mode:

First battle - Battle of Si Shui Gate - I don't recommend doing Zhou Yu 
first, especially if you're new to the Dynasty Warriors Series, Lu Bu is 
here, and boy is he pissed.  But, if your stubborn like me, and want to 
do it, I recommend a good bodyguard, one with the slightly higher attack 
power, and a close range weapon.  Knock Lu Bu down, get behind him and 
when he stands up, hack away.  Kill as many troops as possible, as 
always, and when fighting Lu Bu, if your Health gets dangerously low, 
run, there is a pot to the left of the gate with a full heal, but don't 
stay away too long, or those bastards you call allies will take your 
kill.

Second Battle - Battle of Jing Province - You start off just below the 
center, in the main base, Soon a cut scene will show, even if you know 
the history here, it cannot be prevented, I tried.  Go in the center, 
take out the base, kill all who get in your way.  This map is easy, no 
way to really die, if you get close to Sun Ce, another cut scene will 
show.  Just kill here, try to get as many kills as you can, it's a fun 
map.

Third Battle - Battle of the Wu Territory - You start the battle with a 
cut scene, then you start to kick some ass.  There is a set of two 
crates, (weapon and item) in front of you, grab them.  Kill enemies, and 
defeat the officer guarding the gate, kill the officer controlling the 
fort in front of you, and rush off to kill Yan Baihu.  When that's done, 
Sun Quan should be asking for help, go kill all officers and units inside 
the base he was ambushed in.  Then go kill Taishi Ci.  This map is also 
easy, kill as many as possible.

Fourth Battle - Battle of Xia Kou - Payback on Huang Zu.  The battle 
starts with a cut scene, once again obsessing over Sun Ce's death.  You 
start off by killing anyone in front of you, rush through enemy lines.  
Kill off officers, then go after Cai Mao, take him out to prevent ships 
from sailing.  Then fight your way out of that area, Xiao Qiao should be 
following you this mission, she'll keep saying stuff like "your so 
awesome!" its very annoying.  Attack your way through; kill Gan Ning, 
yadda yadda.  You can also get a high number of kills here.

Fifth Battle - Battle of Chi Bi - really no strategy here, just kill.  
When someone needs help, go save him or her.  Get a lot of kills.  Fight 
all officers, and clear the two bridges.

3rd Weapon - Elder Sword - 11 power

4th Weapon - Ancients Sword - 34 power - 
(17 charge, 16 bow, 15 defense, 16 attack, 18 Musou)

How to Get 4th weapon: (Battle for Wu Territory) extremely easy, just 
kill Wang Yan Baihu and Wang Lang, thus taking the fortresses.  When 
you're done, a note saying "Valuable Item Discovered" will appear.  The 
weapon is just atop the stairs of the wall on the fortress at the bottom, 
by the checkpoint inside the castle, to the left.


------------------------------
-Lu Xun 
------------------------------

- Another brilliant mind of Wu, his strategy brought the initial downfall 
of Shu, and was revered by many, including Zhou Yu and Lu Meng.  Started 
in the military at a young age, seeks for a land under a single rule.

Musou:

The Invasion of Nan Zhong – Charge forward, taking out the enemy attack 
base.  When that's done, had after Jinhuan Sanjie's sub generals, Ahui 
Nan and Dong Tu Na.  Then, charge Zhu Rong and Jinhuan Sanjie in the 
bottom.  Take Zhu Rong's elephant, and march north, through the defense 
base, and take over the neutral attack base in the north.  When that's 
done, march back south, and take over the attack base, next to where you 
killed Zhu Rong and Jinhuan.  When that's done, march forward, triggering 
Meng Huo's "the moron fell for it!" decree.  Kill Meng You, then Rush 
back to the allied main base, and destroy the beast masters, which 
appeared where the barricades next to the base once were.  When that's 
done, rush through the enemy camp, past Meng Huo, and kill King Duosi, 
and the two bases you come across in their camp.  Take out any gate, and 
enemy you come across as well.  When that's done, then go after Meng Huo.

Battle of Fan Castle – Head forward, and take the supply base ahead of 
you.  When that's done, head past to the second supply base, killing Liao 
Hua on the way.  Destroy the gate to the east of the second supply base, 
and move west, killing the defense base, and Guan Xing.  Move down, back 
to the main camp (taking down Guan Suo on the way), then clear out the 
designated gate, to allow Wei reinforcements to come.  Then head west, 
destroy the defense base, and assault Fu Shi Ren and Mi Fang.  When Meng 
Da arrives, kill him and Liu Feng as well. Mi Fang should have defected 
to your side by now, so head up and kill Guan Ping, AND THOSE ANNOYING 
ARCHERS.  Zhang Fei shows up, you know what to do, and if you even think 
of saying you don't, I will spend all my money just to hunt you down and 
beat you senseless. (P.S. don't forget his Sub-general, Zhang Bao.) Now, 
take out the last defense base in the middle, head for Zhou Cang, Ma 
Liang and the other three bases on the top left.  Then head for Fan 
Castle, where Guan Yu should have already rushed.  Slay him, and congrats 
you win.

Battle of Yi Ling – Charge forward to the supply base ahead of you, and 
just have fun killing until Zhu Ran is ready to initiate the fire attack.  
When Wu Lan, Guan Suo, Ma Dai, Guan Xing and Li Yan get in your way, slay 
them. The death of Li Yan will trigger Liao Hua to attack you, take him 
out as well.  Hurry up to Zhu Ran when the bridge layers activate, to 
protect him, and make sure the fire attack is carried out.  Keep 
fighting, and charge through the maze, (cut scene triggers) and seek out 
Liu Bei's main base.  Now, you can do one of two things, just kill Liu 
and get it over with, or have fun and slay the rest of the officers and 
troops on the screen.  I choose, and recommend the latter, as because 
Zhuge Liang is a major pain in the ass.  Have fun.
(Note: easy way through the maze, follow the enemy troops, if you keep 
running into fresh troops, your doing good.)

Battle of He Fei Castle – Head forward, and attack the gate captain, 
opening He Fei's west gate.  Head inside (if you have a bodyguard, 
instruct him to stay right now), around the castle to behind the inner 
front gate.  Kill any officer (Cao Xiu, Cao Zhang, Xiahou Hui and Cao 
Zhen.) Destroy the first defense guard, taking out the catapults, then 
the Cao Ren, then the next defense guard. Then jump over the wall, (even 
if you have a horse, just leave it for now) and protect the ram.  The 
gate should open soon, and then you may get your horse back, if you left 
it. Charge Xu Zhu in the center, then go after Cao Hong, (Sub-Gen: Xiahou 
Shang) and Wang Lang (Sub-Gen: Wen Pin) if the units that take the path 
opened by the rock slide advance to far, take them out as well (that's 
why I instructed you to make your bodyguard stay, he should help take out 
some of them.)  Now, when Sima Yi says "the wind is just right" go to the 
top ships of the fleet to the right of the map, and kill the task force. 
Now, kill Cao Rui, Sima Zhao, Sima Yi (cut scene), and finally, Cao Pi.
(Side Note: Zhen Ji's "save the princess" comment is triggered when any 
Wu soldier getting close to Xu Zhu.  If you can get inside the chamber 
that Cao Pi and Sima Yi are in soon after that, a cut scene and ambush 
will trigger.)

Battle of Bai Di Castle – Starts out with an awesome movie, then you head 
forward, killing enemy peasants, and attempting to surround the castle. 
Move up to Wang Ping, killing him and his officer, Huang Zhong (you may 
also want to kill Yan Yan before heading to Wang Ping, seeing as how he's 
another of Huang Zhong's Sub-gens).  Charge past up, up to the supply 
base up top, tramping it.  Then head back down, taking over that supply 
base, and the attack base too. Take out Ma Chao (watch out, he's super 
charged) when he shows up, and any other officers on the way (Guan Suo, 
Ma Dai and Guan Xing).  Then take the attack base in the bottom right 
corner, moving up to the supply base in the middle right, and kill Yang 
Yi to open the eastern gate of Bai Di castle, and storm in (P.S. Watch 
out for the arbalests in the castle, they are a real pain in the 
ass!!!!!!).  Take out the two gates on top and bottom, along with Jiang 
Wei, Xing Cai, and if you feel like it, Zhang Bao and Zhang Yi.  Ignore 
Liu Chan till the very end (watch out enemy reinforcements will show up a 
few minutes after you enter the castle). Congrats, you win.

3rd Weapon – Eagle – 11 power

4th Weapon – Falcon – 34 power
(Fill 15, Luck 18, Speed 20, Attack 15, Musou 19)

How to get fourth weapon – Battle of Bai Di Castle – Ok, main thing here, 
until you receive the weapon, stay the hell out of Bai Di Castle, and 
stay the hell away from Xing Cai. Start off by charging after Huang 
Zhong, to save Huang Gai from any embarrassment that the old man will try 
to deal to him.  When that's done, just slay the little peon peasants 
until Ma Chao shows up, kill him, and rush through the maze (move around 
to the center, take out the golden statue, then kill all the enemies that 
appear), and slay Jiang Wei.  The Valuable item will show up in the top 
right corner of the stone sentinel maze.  After this, go after Liu Chan, 
beat him, Xing Cai will now rush you and if you stay in the castle too 
long, Yue Ying's reinforcements will appear, (after she appears, if the 
valuable item has not yet shown up, it won't appear at all).


------------------------------
-Taishi Ci 
------------------------------

- Extremely loyal and powerful, will fight off anyone who tries to 
disrupt Wu.  Developed strong ties with Sun Ce, and fought on with Wu, 
even after Sun Ce's death.

Musou Mode:

1. Battle of the Wu Territory - start off killing every officer, troops 
and base you can.  Take over bases, When Sun Quan is trapped, kill him, 
and if you see Zhou Tai, kill him on the way.  Take out Zhou Yu, hes a 
major pain in the ass.  So, just kill off troops, get a high KO rate, and 
kill Sun Ce when you feel like it.  When you encounter him, a cutscene 
will play.
 
2. Battle of Xia Kou - Kill Huang Zu.  Start off the battle, by rushing 
to Cai Mao, Killing any officer on the way.  If you brought a body guard, 
leave him behind, as he can take alot of your kills.  Kill Cai Mao, and 
the other officer near him, and fight your way out.  You can rack up alot 
of kills here, so have fun.  

3. Battle of He Fei - start off by taking over the defense base in front 
of you, and the supply base beyond that.  When Zhang Liao shows up, rush 
to Sun Quan to save him.  Kill off Xu Huang when he shows up, to make 
sure he doesn't flank the bottom.  Kill Zhang Liao when he appears again.  
Take out Pang De on the way, to or from the bottom, and any bases in the 
way. Kill Zhang Liao when he appears again, then rush up top, and slay 
Cao Cao.

4. The Invasion of Nan Zhong - Kill Dong Tu Na, Ahui Nan and Jinhuan 
Sanjie right off the bat, and slay any pesky peon that gets in your way.  
Kill Zhu Rong, and take her elephant, take out the defense base on the 
left of the map, and capture the attack base up top.  March into the 
allied base with the elephant, knocking down the walls on both sides.  
When the task force shows up, take him out, don't let him knock out the 
bridge, and kill the beast masters.  Then march through the enemy camp, I 
recommend long way, as to kill more troops, and kill Meng Huo.  Don't let 
anyone too close to Meng Huo, until the beast master and task force have 
been taken care of, or he'll appear close to the main camp.

5. Battle of He Fei Castle - Whoo, I don't like this one.  Start off by 
eliminating Xu Huang, and those annoying troops in your way.  When Lu Xun 
gives the command, rush around the left side, killing Cao Zhang and 
Cao Xiu on the way.  Of course, attack soldiers on the way.  Kill the 
defense captains manning the catapults, (have a little fun flying down 
the stairs with your jump charge attack) and kill the gate captain, 
letting everyone in!  When the task force appears on the ships, kill them 
before they set the ship on fire, also don't forget, kill all officers 
you come across.  Wrap it up by killing as many soldiers as possible, 
then go after Cao Pi.

Attacks:

Triangle (charge) - stamps the ground, knocking enemies down.

Jump + Triangle - flies at ground, stabbing ground and slamming enemies 
around.

Musou - stabs repeatingly with left and right rod.  Finishes with 
attacking in two X shaped motions, and finishing with stabbing forward 
with both rods at same time.

True Musou - Same as Musou, except stronger, and finishes with a swipe 
up, and jumps down, slamming ground.

Square - Swings right rod.

Square X2 - Swings right rod, and stabs with left rod.

left, then with right once more. 
(Evolution attack is now triggered, if acquired)

C2 - Swings right rod, stabs with left rod, then stomps around, slamming 
rods down at ground repeatedly, finishes with a spin and attack.

rods, clearing entire area around him.

C5 - Swings right rod, stabs with left rod, then attacks while before a

with right rod twice, then spins rods around and attacks from both sides.


Starting Weapon - Twin Rods - 5 power

2nd Weapon – Spiral Rods – 10 power

3rd Weapon – Wolf Slayer – 16 power

4th Weapon - Tiger Slayer - 38 power  
(Charge 15, Horse 15, Bow 15, Defense 18, Life 18)


How to Get 4th weapon:

(Battle for the Wu Territory)                 

This one is EXTREMELY easy.  Start out just killing troops, wait for Sun 
Quan to get trapped and kill him off before Zhou Tai saves him.  Once 
he's dead just kill off Zhou Tai, and the valuable item will appear up 
top, to the left of Sun Ce, in front of the gate on the ship.  From there 
on, just kill and maim until you feel like taking on Sun Ce.  Watch out 
if the enemy infiltrates the main camp.  Kill Zhou Yu off, that's a major 
help.

in martial arts.  She was so interested in war that even her chambermaids 
knew how to fight.

Musou Mode:

1.Battle of Jing Province – start off by taking the two attack bases in 
the center, don't kill a lot of soldiers, and just take them.  If your 
strong, feeling brave, and on red hare, you can attempt to take out Huang 
Zu, and save your father, but it takes speed.  Once that's done, take out 
the defense base to the east, and clear out the outer castle courtyard, 
move back out to the area before the main gate, if they're still 
fighting.  Then just move your way inward, killing any officer that gets 
in your way.

2.Escape from Chi Bi – I recommend you have a horse for this battle, 
preferably Red Hare.  Chase after Cao Cao, that's it.  Take out any 
officer that gets in your way, not any ON your way, any that gets in your 
way.  The main ones there are Xiahou Yuan, Cheng Yu, Xun Yu, and 
sometimes Liu Yan, Xiahou Dun and Zhang Liao.  Cao Cao will stop his 
marches sometimes, nail him when he stops.  Also watch out for the bridge 
collapsing in the beginning, which takes a lot of time off of catching 
Cao Cao.

3.Battle of He Fei – Start out by taking the gate and the supply base in 
front of you.  Start moving upwards, taking out the defense base, and 
when Xu Huang shows up, quickly route him, to prevent him from flanking 
the main base.  Work to the center, and take out Zhang Liao when he 
appears.  Move up to the top right corner, and destroy the defense and 
supply base, and kill Zhang Liao when he appears once more.  Move towards 
the castle, taking out that supply base in the middle top, and move down 
to the supply//defense combo just below that.  When Zhang Liao shows up 
once more, kill him, and move up, take the supply base if it already 
hasn't been.  If you feel like it, kill Zhang Liao for the last time, but 
I didn't, he got on my nerves.  Take out Cao Cao and you win.

4.Invasion of Nan Zhong – Kill Ahui Nan and Dong Tu Ne, and go after 
Dailai Dongzhu.  When He's dead, go after Zhu Rong (Take her elephant), 
take out the attack base next to her, and go capture the attack base in 
the north.  Take out the supply base on the way.  Destroy the walls that 
are enclosing the main camp, and march down at Meng Huo the long way, 
through his camp.

5.Battle of Yi Ling – Start off by making your bodyguard stay, unless 
your severely underpowered.  Defeating enemies here should be a snap.  
Defeat enemies, officers and gate captains while waiting for the fire 
attack.  Once that's done, go around the field, eliminating any rogue 
officers that pose a threat, kill off enemies, and close gates.  Finish 
it by killing off her love, Liu Bei.  A cutscene will show once you meet 
with him.

Attacks:

Triangle (charge) – does three cartwheels, attacking anything she hits.

Jump + Triangle - jumps, throws chakrams at the ground, and gets them 
back, like a boomerang.

Musou – throws chakrams around in front of her, finishing off with a 
couple roundhouses.

True Musou – same as Musou, except finishes off with one large beam 
emanating round house.

Square – Swings chakram left.

Square X2 – Swings chakram left then right.

Square X3 - Swings chakram left, right, then squats and attacks from 
behind.

then spins back around, doing a 180 attack.

Square X5 - Swings chakram left, right, then squats and attacks from 
behind, spins back around, doing a 180 attack, then uses both chakrams 
and does a full 180 swipe.

Square X6 - Swings chakram left, right, then squats and attacks from 
behind, spins back around, doing a 180 attack, uses both chakrams and 
does a full 180 swipe, then kicks high into air.
(Evolution attack can be triggered, if acquired)

C1 - Swings chakram left, then charges and attacks in an uppercut motion.

C2 - Swings chakram left, right, then a couple of roundhouse attacks.

C3 - Swings chakram left, right, squats and attacks from behind, then 
throws chakrams in front of her, and they spin in somewhat of a figure 8.

C4 - Swings chakram left, right, squats and attacks from behind, spins 
back around, doing a 180 attack, then kicks into air, creating rose petal 
whirlwind.

C5 - Swings chakram left, right, then squats and attacks from behind, 
spins back around, doing a 180 attack, uses both chakrams and does a full 
180 swipe, then throws chakrams, and they spin circles around her. 
Excellent Crowd Clearer.

How to get 4th weapon:

4th Weapon Requirement- Kill all Officers and Sub Generals.
(The Invasion of Nan Zhong)

 – Start off by taking the attack base in the top left.  Then head down 
to Meng Huo, triggering an ambush, and let the bridge get knocked down, 
then head to Sun Quan, and a scene is triggered, with a message Sun Quan 
Has Been Rescued!  Then kill Mang Yachang and King Mulu; they should be 
inside the allied base.  Kill Zhu Rong and Dailai Dongzhu, as they get in 
the way.  Head to Jinhuan Sanjies sub-generals, Ahui Nan and Dong Tu Na, 
and once their incapacitated, kill Dailai.  Head around the Nanman camp, 
killing Meng You, King Duosi and finishing off with Yang Feng.  The 
valuable item appears to the bottom left of the attack base you were 
supposed to occupy in the beginning.  Finish Meng Huo and you've won.

-Sun Quan 
------------------------------

- Son of Sun Jian, ruled after the death of both his father and brother, 
the fate of Wu rests on his shoulders.  Has a remarkable leadership 
skills.

Musou:

Battle of Xia Kou – head forward, destroy the attack base, Zhang Hu, Chen 
Sheng, Lu Gong, the supply base, then head to the southwest, defeating 
the defense base.  As soon as you are in the base, rush past everyone, to 
Cai Mao, and kill him, defending the main base from his fleet.  Now, go 
after Wen Pin, the supply base inside the enemy's base, and the defense 
base to the left.  Go after Gan Ning and the attack base on the far left, 
then head up after Huang Zu.

Battle of Chi Bi – head forward, and take out the gate right ahead of 
you.  Head forward even more, and defeat Wang Lang, taking down the east 
bridge, right as the announcement goes out.  Then go after Yu Jin and 
keep on fighting in that little area for a while.  When Zhen Ji comes 
down, kill her and Xu Shu, then head west, to 'help' the overpopulation 
of enemy troops.  On the way, kill of Xun You, Wen Pin and Man Chong.  
Next, go after Zhang Liao, who is probably trying to raid Zhuge Liang's 
prayer by now.  Now, go back easy, and kill off Xiahou Yuan, who ventured 
a little far into your territory, and for that he must pay.  Now, the 
ships are probably set aflame by now, head up through the western bridge 
(the one you were supposed to destroy, but I didn't for a good reason, 
this) to go after Cao Hong in a hurry.  After Hong, Go after Cao Zhen, 
Cao Xiu and Cao Pi.  Finish off with Jia Xu and finally, Cao Cao.

Battle of He Fei – start off by rushing the defense base in the center of 
the map (straight ahead of you).  Man Chong should be inside the base, so 
take him out as well.  When you're done, head outside the base and take 
care of Niu Jin and Pang De (Niu Jin first, cause he'll run when Pang De 
is defeated).  While fighting them, Cao Zhang should show up with 
reinforcements, so feel free to take him out as well.  Now, take out the 
gates that are right below the defense base. Zhang Liao's ambush should 
have shown up by now, so rush over there and take him out, the arrogant 
bastard. Next, head for the supply base above the defense base you 
defeated, then go for the next defense base to the left of the defeated 
defense base you conquered, the one right above where Xu Huang's ambush. 
Now, go south, and take out the supply base, Xu Huang and Yue Jin, along 
with the gate and soldiers, of course.  By now, Xiahou Dun and Cao Hong's 
reinforcement units have shown up, along with the annoying Zhang Liao, 
take them out, along with Li Dian and Yu Jin who up there as well, and 
don't forget the defense base and two supply bases up top, along with 
taking out the supply base below He Fei Castle on the way.  Head back to 
the southwest, and defeat Zhang Liao who appeared once more to the 
bottom, and head to the top.  Take Zhang Liao out one last time, and 
defeat Cao Cao.

Battle of He Fei Castle – start off by charging ahead and defeating the 
gate captain, watch out, troops appear from behind and may attack you by 
surprise. Storm into the castle, and kill Wen Pin, and go north, taking 
out Wang Lang.  Go around the castle, to the inner castle, and take out 
Xiahou Shang and Cao Hong on the way.  In the castle, kill Cao Zhen, Cao 
Ren and if you feel like venturing farther north, Xu Zhu.  But, first, 
take out the catapult's Defense captains (who are on top of the castle 
walls, on each side of the inner castles front gate).  If you 
accidentally jump, fall or are knocked over the wall (for example, you 
knock Cao Zhen over the wall on accident and jump over cause you are not 
letting that bastard escape O=) Ahem,) just wait at the front gate, by 
the ram, and wait for the door to open, it shouldn't take too long.  
Next, fight through the western indirect route into the castle (where Cao 
Zhang is//was), and route the troops over there, and when you see Zhen 
Ji, get rid of her.  Now, leave out of the side of the castle, and go 
down, and right, past the outer castle's main gate, over to the ships, 
and seek out Cao Rui, Man Chong and the Task Leaders. Next, head up to 
Sima Yi and Cao Pi, and kill them.

Battle of Bai Di Castle - Head forward, killing anything in your way, in 
an attempt to surround the castle. Go after Yan Yan, and trample the 
attack base above him.  Now, attack Wang Ping, killing him and his 
officer, Huang Zhong. Charge up to the northern most supply base, and 
trample it.  Then head back down, taking over that supply base (If Huang 
Gai already hasn't).  Now, go back to your main base, and attack any 
troops there, and wait for Ma Chao.  Take out Ma Chao (watch out, he's 
super charged, and he's looking for you) when he shows up, and then head 
for the other officers, Guan Suo, Ma Dai and Guan Xing.  Then take the 
attack base in the bottom right corner, moving up to the supply base in 
the middle right, and kill Yang Yi to open the eastern gate of Bai Di 
castle, and storm in (P.S. Watch out for the arbalests in the castle, 
they are a real pain in the ass!!!!!!).  Take out the two gates on top 
and bottom, along with Jiang Wei, Xing Cai, and if you feel like it, 
Zhang Bao and Zhang Yi.  Ignore Liu Chan till the very end (watch out 
enemy reinforcements they show up a few minutes after you enter the 
castle).

Attacks:

Charge: Stamps the ground, knocking enemies down.  It does not do good 
damage at all, but it is useful for making escapes, and getting ready to 
nail the enemy.

S2: Swings sword left, then right.

attacks.

Weapons:
	
Starting Weapon - Wolf Sword - 3 power

2nd Weapon – Wolf Claw – 7 power 

3rd Weapon – King Wolf – 11 power

4th Weapon – Master Wolf – 34 power
(Charge 17, Fill 15, Bow 15, Attack 16, Musou 18)

How to get 4th Weapon – Battle of Chi Bi – Go forward, and take out the 
gate, and the bridge straight ahead (by killing Wang Lang), when that's 
done go take out the western bridge (By killing Cai Mao).  If Pang Tong 
starts to struggle, watch out, at least until his cut scene shows, which 
is soon after the collapse of both bridges.  Now, go over to the land on 
the left side of the map, and kill anyone that gets close to Zhuge Liang 
(Mainly Xun You and Wen Pin).  Also make sure to close the gate just 
above Zhuge's position.  Go up; take out Zhang Liao, and probably Xiahou 
Yuan who will get in your way and any minions in your way.  When Huang 
Gai is summoned, make sure nothing major is in his way.  If you go 
through all three of the cut scenes (Zhuge's "there is no magic here" 
speech, Huang's "flames of Wu" speech and Pang Tongs genius gloating) 
then the valuable item will appear on the large ship right below Cao 
Cao's large ship, to the left of the gate. Now, go take out Zhen Ji, who 
has been causing trouble on the right side of the map, move up to the 
rest of the officers, and finish off Cao Cao.  As always, don't forget 
your weapon.

------------------------------
-Ling Tong 
------------------------------

- Son of Ling Cao, Ling Tong is an excellent fighter always raring to go.  
Although a little bit cynical, his bravery carries him long distances.  
When his father was killed by the pirate Gan Ning, he grew indifferent 
towards him, constantly competing with him, on and off the battlefield.

(*Recommended Wu Starter)

I recommend you start any Musou Mode with him, because he is pretty easy. 
He's extremely fast, he is pretty strong and is easy to learn the game 
with.  Charge attack isn't too useful, but his (SSS+/\) attack is a great 
crowd clearer.  Another reason I recommend him, is to get the Tiger 
Amulet, that is possibly the best item in the game, it is extremely 
useful. Side Note: strengthen up, the battle of He Fei is quite annoying 
and I tried many times before defeating, just a warning.


Battle of the Wu Territory - His first battle is easy, just hack, slash 
and kill, no real way to lose. Use your (SSS+/\) as mentioned above, and 
have fun with it.  When Sun Quan is ambushed, go help him.  Watch out for 
Taishi Ci, he killed me first try cause I was careless. Save a Musou rage 
to deal with him, that'll fix his ass.

Battle of Xia Kou - This one can be quite annoying.  Your father will die 
here, make no mistake about that.  When he does, Ling Tong becomes 
enraged, this is when you go after Gan Ning, kill him, and just keep 
killing officers.  Fight your way to the center, and take out Cai Mao 
before he launches the fleet, and any other officer on your way. then 
fight up to Huang Zu.  Kill a lot here, battle of He Fei, as stated 
earlier, is quite hard.

Battle of Chi Bi - I royally screwed this up the first time, Zhuge Liang 
never called the wind, but Huang Gai did set their ships on fire however, 
that was good.  Anyway, if Zhou Yu is defeated here, he dies, and Sun 
Quan lets off some speech saying to avenge him, yadda yadda yadda.  
Either way, don't let Wei get too far.  Start off by eliminating all 
officers near to you.  That is about two or three.  Then go clear off 
those bridges, kill Xiahou Yuan on the other side of bridge one, it's 
easy.  When this is all done, just slay until the fire attack proceeds.  
Kill Cao Cao when the times right, and you win.

Battle of He Fei - this one isn't too easy, but it can be done first try, 
but I wouldn't know, I died like 5 times.  First, head for Pang De, kill 
him, and take out the officer on the way.  Then, after him, take out Cao 
Zhang (he appears behind him) and if you want, the base just above him.  
Then head towards Sun Quan, taking out Man Chong and the base.  When you 
get to Sun Quan, chances are Zhang Liao is there, Rape him.  Jump and hit 
him off the horse, and kick his ass.  Don't let a soldier or your 
bodyguard kill him, it was your kill rightfully. Then head north, kill 
soldiers.  Wait for Zhang Liao to appear, and kill him once more. Head to 
the bottom left, and kill soldiers there, and wait for Zhang Liao to show 
up, and kill him, once more.  When this is finished (you should probably 
have a Musou rage by now) and wait to the right of the fort, and wait, 
Zhang Liao will show up once last time, Musou rage him, and kill him off.  
Head into the fortress, and kill units and work your way over to Cao Cao.

Battle of Yi Ling - Pshaw, what a joke.  Only a few pointers for here, 
make sure Zhu Ran doesn't die, and kill Liu Bei.  Easy.  If you go near 
Gan Ning, you'll trigger a cut scene.  When your inside the sentinel 
maze, your map will disappear, just follow the trail of soldiers to kill.  
It's easy to get over 1000 kills here.  Have fun here, take out all the 
enemy officers, not that difficult.

Attacks:

Charge: Running kick at an enemy, I don't recommend this, it sucks.

Jumping Charge: Kicks an enery disk at the enemy.  Good for knocking 
people off of horses, and clearing enemies in front of you.

S: Swings Nunchaku.

S2: Swings Nunchaku, then in opposite direction.

S3: Swings Nunchaku, then in opposite direction, then in opposite 
direction again.

S4: Swings Nunchaku, then in opposite direction, then in opposite 
direction again, then opposite direction once more.

S5: Swings Nunchaku, then in opposite direction, then in opposite 
direction again, then opposite direction once more, then spins around, 
flailing Nunchaku.

S6: Swings Nunchaku, then in opposite direction, then in opposite 
direction again, then opposite direction once more, spins around, 
flailing Nunchaku, then charges and swings it at dead in front of him.  
(Can trigger an evolution attack.)

C1: Swings Nunchaku, then charges and kicks with both feet upwards, doing 
a backflip.

C2: Swings Nunchaku, then in opposite direction, then does three 
roundhouse kicks.

C3: Swings Nunchaku, then in opposite direction, then in opposite 
direction again, then does a front flip, slamming into ground.  Good 
crown clearer.

C4: Swings Nunchaku, then in opposite direction, then in opposite 
direction again, then opposite direction once more, then swings it in 
front of him, causing a whirlwind.

C5: Swings Nunchaku, then in opposite direction, then in opposite 
direction again, then opposite direction once more, then spins around, 
flailing Nunchaku, then causes a fire whirlwind, turns around, and turns 
back.

Musou: flails the Nunchaku in front of him, finishes off by doing a 360. 

True Musou: Flails the Nunchaku in front of him, and finishes a few more 
stronger hits in front of him, finishes with an emitted beam.

Weapons:

Starting Weapon - Wood Nunchaku - 4 power

2nd Weapon - Iron Nunchaku - 8 power

3rd Weapon - Rising Phoenix - 12 power

4th Weapon - Dragon Fury - 36 power - 
(Charge 16, Luck 16, Speed 19, Attack 17, Life 15)

How to Get 4th weapon: (Battle of He Fei) this one isn't too easy, but it 
can be done first try, I did.  First, head for Pang De, kill him, and 
take out the officer on the way.  Then, after him, take out Cao Zhang (he 
appears behind him) and if you want, the base just above him.  Then head 
towards Sun Quan, taking out Man Chong and the base.  When you get to Sun 
Quan, chances are Zhang Liao is there, Rape him.  Jump and hit him off 
the horse, and kick his ass (Make sure its YOU that kills him, not your 
bodyguard, or another soldier.)  Then head north, kill soldiers.  Wait 
for Zhang Liao to appear, and kill him once more (Again, make sure its 
YOU that kills him) Head to the bottom left, and kill soldiers there, and 
wait for Zhang Liao to show up, YOU kill him, once more.  When this is 
finished (you should probably have a Musou rage by now) and wait to the 
right of the fort, and wait, Zhang Liao will show up once last time, 
Musou rage him, and kill him off.  The fourth weapon will appear on top 
of the bottom wall of the fortress Cao Cao is in, once you have it, kill 
off Cao Cao.

	Wei - "Warriors who sought to conquer..."
"With the rise of the Hero of Chaos, Cao Cao, a new era had been ushered 
in.  Will the land come to know peace under his ambitious rule?  Or will 
their oppressive rule simply increase the feelings of unrest throughout 
the land?  The Kingdom of Wei strives to prove that its brand of 
government is what's best for the people."

- A man of intense fury, virtue and emotion, and a capable warrior on the 
battlefield as well.  Cousin to Cao Cao, he fights to unite China under 
Wei. 

Musou:

Battle of Xia Pi – Head forward, and take out the defense base ahead. 
Then head up, don't cross the bridge to your north, go around, you should 
run into Zang Ba, who you'll kill, on the way. After Zang Ba, head east, 
and kill the supply base that you'll eventually run into, along with Cao 
Xing and Zhang Liao.  Then head to Gao Shun, and the Flood gate is right 
ahead of him, you'll notice it by the giant churning wheel, well, to 
capture it, kill Gao Shun. Now, Hou Cheng and Song Xian will defect, so 
move into the castle, when the upper gate opens, slay, kill and maim, and 
fight to Lu Bu.

Battle of Guan Du – Head forth, and defeat the attack base. Lu Wei Kuang 
should be there, so take him out as well. Now, head out of the base, 
going north, and take out Wen Chou, and the defense base right above him.  
Chances are, Lu Xiang will charge you here too, so kill him.  Not hard. 
When Wu Chao opens up, charge in and kill every one in your way, 
excluding Zhang He, he defects after Wu Chao is set aflame. But, if you 
wish to kill him, it's always good to get extra points at the end of the 
battle. Take out Yuan Shang, and finally, Chunyu Qiong, he triggers the 
base being set on fire.  Now, head after the four remaining officers 
(Zhen Ji, Liu Bei (sub: Jian Yong), Yuan Tan (sub: Xun Chen), and Yuan Xi 
(sub: Lu Kuang). When everything's safe, and all enemies are done, go 
after Yuan Shao, who should have charged by now, and you win.
(Note: DO NOT LET GUAN DU CASTLE FALL!!!!! If a distress signal is sent 
out, haul ass down there, pronto!)

Guan Yu's Escape – This one is not a real good battle for attaining KOs.  
Rush forward, and attack any one and anything that gets in your way.  The 
order enemies appear in should be: Liao Hua, Zhou Cang, Zhao Yun, Guan 
Ping, Zhang Fei, and finally, Liu Bei.  Defeat all them, then finally go 
after Guan Yu, and you win.  Defeat the carriage before you go after Guan 
Yu though, as because its escape means your loss.  P.S. if you run across 
Guan Yu, and you haven't defeated them all yet, just charge past him.

Battle of Chang Ban – charge forward, attack the peasants if you wish, 
they do no harm to you.  Head forward, and kill Zhang Fei, the toll for 
passage is death, His.  If you don't defeat him in time, and Zhao Yun 
shows up, ignore Zhang Fei for now, and charge Zhao Yun, but as soon as 
your done, go back after that arrogant Zhang Fei. Now, go over, take out 
Song Qian and Mi Fang, and the gate up top as well.  Now, head down, 
taking out the supply base on the lower route, and head down the enemy 
defense base next.  Rush over to the Zhuge Liang, Liu Bei and Guan Yu 
trio, to attack them, and finish the game.  If you start to feel uneasy 
here, rush over to the neutral defense base at the end, to help cut them 
off.

Battle of He Fei – Go forth, and take over the supply base and defense 
base ahead of you (Use Red Hare here!!!).  When that's done, kill Zhu 
Ran, (and Chen Wu) who is outside of your defense base, and pissed off 
cause his slow ass couldn't get to it.  Ha ha, loser. Anyways, kill him 
and defend the base.  Now, kill Taishi Ci who is up there as well. Now, 
when that's done, charge to the southeast, and help over take that base 
that Wu quickly acquired. I killed Ma Zhong, Pan Zhang and Ding Fend on 
the way down, but that's only cause the bastard Ma Zhong knocked me off 
of my horse, and killing him for revenge just wasn't good enough, so I 
recommend you do this too. Once that defense base is taken down, and Lu 
Meng (if he's there) has been taken down, rush north to protect Cao Cao 
from Gan Ning.  When that's all done and over with, charge the succession 
of Defense bases in the middle, go to the top defense base, and charge 
down, to the supply base, ending at Sun Quan.  Take his head, and you 
have won.

Battle of Fan Castle – go forth, and kill the two supply bases, in 
succession over to Guan Ping.  Kill him to end the water attack ploy.  
Right outside of the dam, should be Meng Da, take him out too.  Just to 
the south of the dam, is a defense base, you know what to do.  After 
that, chase down Liu Feng, who should have gone to the dam.  Now charge 
the defense base in the center of the map, then to the supply bases on in 
the bottom right.  Then head for Ma Liang and the defense base in the 
middle of the south, then after Mi Fang and Fu Shi Ren if they haven't 
defected.  Then head after Guan Yu and Zhang Fei.

Then, if you wish to, just rush down to Guan Yu, cause the valuable item 
appears in his base anyway, and defeat him then.  I recommend bringing a 
bodyguard that can heal you. But, if you're going to finish the rest of 
the battle:
If you are going to beat the entire battle, Defeat the two supply bases 
that are next to each other outside the dam, then go back to the dam.  
Right outside of the dam, should be Meng Da, take him out too.  Just to 
the south of the dam, is a defense base, you know what to do.  After 
that, chase down Liu Feng, who should have gone to the dam.  Now charge 
the defense base in the center of the map, then to the supply bases on in 
the bottom right.  Then head for Ma Liang and the defense base in the 
middle of the south, then after Mi Fang and Fu Shi Ren if they haven't 
defected.  Then head up Zhang Fei, don't forget the valuable weapon and 
go after Guan Yu.

-Zhen Ji 
------------------------------

- Enchanting wife of Cao Pi, this beauty will hates being left behind, 
and proves herself on the battlefield quite often.

    -She is an ok game starter, her Charge attack is strong, but her 
weapon range is short, watch out!

First Battle - Battle of Guan Du - Easy, use your charge attack to clear 
enemies out.  Save attack bases and generals if you can, and take out 
Guan Yu.  When the siege towers appear, protect them if possible.  Search 
out Cao Pi for a cutscene.
 
Second Battle - Battle of Chi Bi - Kill Huang Gai!  You can kill Zhuge 
Liang as well, but if you kill Huang Gai first, there is no need. They 
are the main perpetrators of the fire, after that, just kill, maim and 
murder your way through the masses to beat Sun Quan.

Third Battle - Battle of Jie Ting - So easy, battle your way up to Ma Su, 
kill him and take the base, (a cutscene should appear, telling you when 
to attack, till then, just kill anyone in the center.) Then battle your 
way through other enemies to get to anyone who comes close to Cao Pi, and 
kill Zhuge Liang.  Take out Ma Chao when he shows up, he can become quite 
a pest.  

Fourth Battle - Battle of Wu Zhang Plains - If you haven't beefed her up 
by now, this will be hard.  Head to the right side of the map, to the 
bottom of the three passages there, and kill the defense guard, or w/e 
the hell his name is, that will end all supplies getting to the middle.  
Once that's finished, take out the two attack bases in the middle, and 
defend all defense bases till Zhuge Croaks (cutscene), then go to the 
bottom center place, take out the arbalests (cutscene,) and advance with 
the rest of the army to kill Jiang Wei.  Watch out for explosions; take 
out the task team on the bottom right.

Fifth Battle - Battle of He Fei Castle - Medium difficulty, just kill 
your way till the army attacks Sun Quan's Boat.  Save Sima Yi if he 
starts struggling, and watch Cao Pi.  Lu Xun usually attacks you, so be 
wary of him.  Also take out Ram's, they are annoying as well.  When 
that's all done and over with, go after Sun Quan, killing Zhou Tai on the 
way.

Attacks:

Charge: plays flute, the note explodes after a few seconds.
(Note: I recommend this for the first battle, three of these in 
succession will clear the large groups of enemies that surround you.)

Jump and attack: Plays flute in air (great for knocking enemies off 
horse)

Musou: Plays flute, attacking anything in range

True Musou: Same as Musou, except stronger, and she plays 4 flute notes 
at end, finishing off any normal enemy.  

Square: swings flute

S2: attacks, then 360-spin attack

S3: attacks, then 360-spin attack, then attacks downwards

S4: attacks, then 360-spin attack, then attacks downwards, then 360 kick

S5: attacks, then 360 spin attack, and then attacks downwards, then 360 
kick, then another 360 kick

S6: attacks, then 360 spin attack, then attacks downwards, then 360 kick, 
then another 360 kick, then charged flute swing a (a few times if 
evolution attack occurs)

C1: attack, then strong slash upwards.

C2: attacks, then 360-spin attack, then slaps back and forth about 4-5 
times.

C3: attacks, then 360 spin attack, then attacks downwards, then kicks 
backwards.

C4: attacks, then 360 spin attack, then attacks downward, then 360 kick, 
then whirlwind in front of her, knocking enemies into air

C5: attacks, then 360 spin attack, then attacks downwards, then 360 kick, 
then another 360 kick, then plays flute note, (one note of her Musou 
attack)

Weapons:

Starting Weapon - Flute - 2 power

2nd Weapon - Iron Flute - 6 power 

3rd Weapon - Moon Flute - 10 power

4th Weapon - Dark Moon Flute - 32 power
(Fill 20, Horse 17, Bow 18, Def 18, Life 17)

How to Get 4th weapon: (Battle of He Fei Castle) Oh god, if this were any 
easier… Just kill at least 300 (hell, I got over 1100) people and go by 
Cao Pi, you'll get an intermission movie, where Zhen Ji is killing troops 
with her Musou. To do this, just run through the castle killing, simple 
as that, kill troops, officers, whatever, there are more then enough.  
Watch out for ambushes and whatnot, kill rams when they show up, and 
destroy any officer who gets close to an important general.  Item appears 
just past Zhou Tai on Sun Quan's ship. When Lu Xun shows up, use a Musou 
rage, when your done killing his little squad, another Musou rage token 
should show, use that on Sun Quan.

------------------------------
-Cao Pi 
------------------------------

- Son of Cao Cao, extremely intelligent and level headed, future of Wei 
is in his hands.  Began his legacy at the battle of Guan Du.

(*Recommended Wei Starter)
-----I recommend you start the Wei Musou Mode with him, he's strong, 
fast, and his first battle is quite easy. 

First Battle - Battle of Guan Du - Just destroys the towers when Cao Cao 
tells you to (if this event occurs).  I cannot emphasize this enough, USE 
YOUR CHARGE ATTACK, it's an effective crowd clearer, and when your Musou 
gauge is filled, it freezes enemies.  Kill as many as possible, map is 
extremely simple.

Second Battle - Battle of Chi Bi - KILL HUANG GAI! If you have Red Hare 
by now, after you kill Huang Gai, haul ass over to Zhuge Liang, and kill 
him as he retreats, triggering a special item.  Other then that, just 
kill here, if you take down Huang, that definitely swings the tide of 
battle in your favor.  Kill officers for extra points, and just slay, 
slay, slay.

Third Battle - Battle of Jie Ting - head to the center, just at the foot 
of the mountain, and kill people, take out officers and whatnot, and just 
have fun.  When Zhen Ji says to head to the mountain and slay Ma Su, do 
so.  Kill him, and Zhuge Liang will show up.  Make your way through the 
area, killing officers for the extra points, kill units, try to get over 
1000, I know it's damn well possible.

Fourth Battle - Battle Of Wu Zhang Plains - Goddamn does this game like 
this battle, I don't know how many people have this battle as one of 
their Musou battles, but I know that two orbs, and countless 4th weapons 
are attained here.  Anyway, start the battle off by taking out the two 
attack bases in the center, boy are their catapults annoying.  Then rush 
over to the right side of the map and take out the defense captain, 
quelling supplies being delivered to the center.  Kill any Wood Ox on the 
way.  Till Zhuge Liang dies, and they retreat, kill enemies.  When they 
do retreat, chase after them, and when the Arbalests show, go up there 
and kill them, watch out for the juggernauts.  Take the left way to Jiang 
Wei, killing the task guards out, thus taking out the explosives as well.  
Use the Musou rage that I KNOW you attained during the battle (because I 
know of at least two on the battlefield) on Jiang Wei, and voila, the 
battles your bitch.

Fifth Battle - Battle of He Fei Castle - Slay all who have entered your 
castle! Damn them Wu Bastards, rush through the castle courtyard slaying 
troops and officers, as well as getting items and weapons in the crates 
that you see. It is so easy to get over 1000 kills here.  Kill the rams 
when they show, and kill Lu Xun as soon as he enters the castle.  Watch 
out for the Ambush that appears in the top left, and middle right.  Then 
just go down and take out Zhou Tai and Sun Quan.

Attacks:

Charge: Shoots out a ball of blue energy that explodes after a few 
seconds, a couple in succession are a good crowd clearer.  When Musou 
gauge is full, it can also freeze enemies.

Jump attack: swipes at ground, bringing enemies into air.  If misses, he 
hits twice and falls, if he hits an enemy (or two, or hell, five) he 
keeps swinging back and forth.  Does significant damage, especially to 
officers.

Musou: Disconnects his blades and swings back and forth consecutively. 
Finishes off with connecting the blades and doing a powerful spin attack.

True Musou: Disconnects his blades and swings back and forth 
consecutively. Finishes off with connecting the blades, doing two 
powerful lunging attacks, and emits a pulse wave.

S: Swings downward.

S2: Swings downward, then horizontally.

S3: Swings downward, horizontally, then horizontally in the opposite 
direction.

S4: Swings downward, horizontally, horizontally in the opposite 
direction, then horizontally in the other direction again.

S5: Swings downward, horizontally, horizontally in the opposite 
direction, horizontally in the other direction again, then spin attack.

S6:  Swings downward, horizontally, horizontally in the opposite 
direction, horizontally in the other direction again, spin attack, then 
attacks upward. (Can trigger evolution attack, after nine attacks, and 
count nine attacks, press triangle to release a red ball of energy, 
explodes in black smoke, does great damage.)

C1: Swings downward, charges then swings up.

C2: Swings downward, then horizontally, then disconnects weapon, and does 
a lunging attack forward about 5 times.  Attack is similar to the ending 
of True Musou.

C3: Swings downward, horizontally, horizontally in the opposite 
direction, then jumps to the side, charges, and lunges diagonally 
forward, attacking.

C4: Swings downward, horizontally, horizontally in the opposite 
direction, horizontally in the other direction again, then stabs 
disconnected swords into ground, sending out blue waves of energy all 
around, throwing enemies away.

C5: Swings downward, horizontally, horizontally in the opposite 
direction, horizontally in the other direction again, spin attack, then 
charged spin attack.

Weapons:

Starting Weapon - Twin Blade - 3 power

2nd Weapon - Dual Fang - 7 power

3rd Weapon - Pure Havoc - 11 power

4th Weapon - Chaos - 34 power
(Fill 15, Speed 19, Def 15, Attack 15, Musou 19)

How to Get 4th weapon: (Battle of Wu Zhang Plains) Holy hell is this 
hard, I must have tried at least 4 times to get this (yes, I know that's 
not a high number for most of you, but considering I only tried once on 
the rest of them so far, that's bad for me. To get this, you must kill 3 
generals, NOT SUB GENERALS, right off the bat.  This is easily done, 
seeing as how there are four generals right below the middle.  Don't go 
for the Wang Lang, Liao Hua special, for the first two kills, I tried 
that, it don't work, cause Ma Dai and Wei Yan just head for the middle, 
making the kill time shorter.  Instead, go for Wei Yan and Ma Dai, 
killing them, and then head on to Liao Hua.  Once this is done, Zhuge 
Liang will croak, and you just have to wait for the Arbalest ambush to 
appear.  During this time, I suggest killing the Supply Line's Defense 
Guard, and maybe take down an attack base.  When the ambush does show up, 
kill all the Arbalests, then the weapon will show up in the center of the 
area you just killed the Arbalests.  (P.S.  if either Sima Yi or Cao Ren 
dies in this battle, the weapon will NOT show up.)

(*Recommended Shu Starter)


-----I recommend starting the Shu Musou mode with him, his Charge attack 
is an effective crowd clearer, his attack is long range, and he's quite 
powerful.

Musou Stages:

Battle of Ji Province - Kill Zhang Bao, Zhang Liang then kill Pei Yuan 
Shao, and follow the message to the precious item at the bottom, easy way 
to acquire Fire arrows in the beginning. On your way to these enemies, 
slay as many troops as possible, I got well over 1000 kills here, and you 
can too.  Don't worry about the tornado's, they don't affect you none.  
Zhang Jiao can be quite annoying, watch out.

Battle of Hu Lao Gate - A word of advice for the battle ahead: STAY THE 
HELL AWAY FROM LU BU!! He is souped up good, and a pain to beat, so just 
avoid him all together.  Just fight your way through, that's all I can 
say, its not too hard if you avoid Lu Bu.  Zhang Liao is annoying, but 
easy.  When your fighting Dong Zhuo, however, Lu Bu may rush to his aid.

Battle of Chang Ban – Don't rush, it's easy.  Casually fight your way 
out, killing everyone in the way, but make sure you get to Liu Bei to 
trigger a cutscene that raises allied morale.  When that's done, rush 
back up top and kill kill kill.  Its OK, Liu Bei will make it to the 
escape point safely. When Cao Cao appears, kill him to end the battle. 
Extremely easy to get over 1000 KO's. 

Battle of Cheng Du – Start off and charge the gate ahead of you, kill Lei 
Tong to open it.  Once inside, kill Fei Guan and Deng Xian, and finally 
Liu Xun.  To the north of the castle is the gate captain, open the 
castle's northern gates.  Now, move out of the left castle gate, to Li 
Yan, kill him and the soldiers in that little area, and then move into 
Cheng Du castle.  Once Cheng Du is cleared out, head north, and kill 
Zhang Ren, if Pang Tong hasn't already died, you just saved him. Now, go 
in front of Cheng Du, to clear out Yan Yan and Wu Lan.  Eventually, the 
inner gates of Cheng Du Castle will open, go inside, clear the gate in 
there, and finally defeat Liu Zhang.  Ends with a cut scene.

Battle of Yi Ling – one major thing in this battle: KILL ZHU RAN.  DO NOT 
LET THE FIRE ATTACK COMMENCE, IT IS A MAJOR PROBLEM.  Rush through enemy 
territory, don't risk waiting till the bridge drops, you may be too far 
away.  Kill Ling Tong and Gan Ning on the way, piece of cake.  From there 
on, just slay, kill and mutilate till you win.  Take care of Lu Xun, he's 
a major pain.

Attacks:

Triangle (charge) – lunges forward, stabbing with spear.

Jump + Triangle – jumps and swipes, if he misses he swipes twice, but if 
he hits, he swipes continuously.  Does considerable damage.

Musou – spins around, and finishes off with a swipe covering a good 
percentage of the area around him.

True Musou – like normal Musou, except stronger, and finishes with a jump 
in the air, and an air pocket driving enemies into air.

Square – Swipes with spear.

Square X2 – Swipes then stabs.

Square X3 – Swipes, stabs then 360 attack.

Square X4 – Swipes, stabs, 360 attack, then slashes downward.

Square X5 – Swipes, Stabs, 360 attack, slashes downward, then another 360 
attack.

Square X6 – Swipes, Stabs, 360 attack, slashes downward, another 360, 
then a strong frontward slash.
(Evolution attack can be triggered, if acquired)

C1 – Swipes, then uses butt of spear to nail upwards.

C2 – Swipes, Stabs then strong slashes upwards and downwards, finishing 
with a 360 attack.

C3 – swipes, stabs, 360 then charged 360.

C4 – Swipes, Stabs, 360 attack, downward slash, then spins around and a 
charged downwards slash, slamming ground.

C5 - Swipes, Stabs, 360 attack, slashes downward, another 360 attack, 
then jumps, spins and swipes.

Weapons:

Starting Weapon - Bronze Spear - 4 power

2nd Weapons – Great Spear – 8 power

3rd Weapon – Dragon Spear – 12 power

4th Weapon – Fierce Dragon – 36 power
(Charge 16, Defense 17, Attack 17, Musou 17, Life 17)

How to get 4th Weapon: (Battle of Cheng Du) – Extremely simple, just take 
the entire southern base. Kill Lei Tong, Fei Guan and then Deng Xian, not 
necessarily in that order, (except for Lei Tong) but you need them dead 
before Liu Xun.  When they are dead, kill the gate captain at the to, and 
the guard captain at the bottom of the base.  Then go after Liu Xun, and 
kill the gate captain too.  It will give you a notice "Luo Castle has 
been captured!" and the valuable item will appear right in the center of 
the castle.

Note: excellent starter, hes strong, he kicks ass, and his first Musou 
mission gets you a rare item!  Start it off with the (SSSS) attack, 
that's his best crowd clearer, but test out the rest, his charge is 
wonderful too.

-Guan Yu 
------------------------------

- The God of War, he embodies virtue, justice and loyalty.  Sworn brother 
of Zhang Fei and Liu Bei, this warrior made a name for himself during the 
Yellow Turban Rebellion.

Musou Stages: 

Battle of Si Shui Gate – start off moving upwards, take out the gate all 
the way to the top east, defeating Hu Zhen on the way. P.S. the pot 
nearby the gate contains a Musou wine.  Move west, and take down the 
defense base, watch out for Niu Fu inside.  Once this is done, head to 
the middle, taking down Dong Min, Jia Xu, Guo Si and the attack base.  If 
you feel fast, you may also wish to take the defense base at the bottom, 
the one Sun Jian is heading towards.  When that's done, head to Si Shui 
gate, killing Li Jue, and if your fast enough you can open the gate up, 
instead of going around, here's where it changes:
(A) If you hurry up, and the gate opens, a cut scene showing Lu Bu will 
show, and you have to defeat him.  Don't worry, he's not that hard here, 
unlike the next part, but it does take some time to get him, I recommend 
a bodyguard here.
(B) If you have to go around, watch out for the ambush that will appear, 
kill them all, and the officers, usually Liu Bei, Sun Jian and Gongsun 
Zan are there to help.
By now, you will have reached Huang Zu, when you reach him, a cut scene 
will play, and you have to defeat him.  Finished.

Battle of Hu Lao Gate – Red Hare is a big help here. Charge forward, only 
killing a couple of that huge group there, and head up to Xu Rong, kill 
him and take the gate which he's by.  From there on, take the attack 
base, killing anyone in your way, and head to the supply base.  Head to 
Hu Lao Gate, killing Hu Zhen, when you see him.  Take out the gate that 
you pass when you first come into the opening, and clear out a ton of 
units, including officers: Guo Si, Zhao Cen, Li Jue, Wang Fang, Li Meng 
and Gao Shun when he come out.  DO NOT KILL THE GATE CAPTAIN BY HU LAO 
GATE! LET SOMEONE ELSE DO IT.  Go clear the gate on the other side of the 
clearing, where Li Jue is, which can give you quite a bit of kills.  When 
Lu Bu finally is unleashed, if your feeling a little brave, charge him.  
Wait for the cut scene, and flee, go help Cao Cao defeat Li Ru, and let 
your brothers take care of Lu Bu for awhile.  When you come back, he 
should have a sizable portion of his health taken out.  Help them take 
him on, til your close to death, then just don't risk it, take off.  Be 
warned, STAY AWAY FROM HIM WHEN HE GLOWS RED OR GOLD, HE WILL KILL YOU IF 
HE ATTACKS, EVEN FROM JUST ONE!!!! If you didn't kill him, head up 
through Zhang Liao, kill him, listen to the little conversation, and head 
for Dong Zhuo.  Watch it, he will call for help from Lu Bu, so eliminate 
him fast. 

Battle of Guan Du – Watch out here, this battle is easy to start screwing 
up in.  Start off by pushing forward through the castle, and heading 
towards Yan Liang.  Leaving your STRONG bodyguard at the top gate of the 
castle, to protect from invaders, head towards him, slaughtering him as 
you get near.  You may also want to stop off to the left of the castle 
first, to kill his sub-general, Han Meng (If your going to go this way, 
get rid of that damn attack base above you, as its extremely annoying).  
Once this is done, just continue fighting, and Liu Bei shall move towards 
you.  When you get close enough, a cut scene will play, showing Liu Bei 
fighting, and Guan Yu rejoicing, having found his brother.  Head after 
him and defeat him and Jian Yong.  What? It's an officer kill, worth good 
points.  Any who, head to Yuan Tan, and slaughter him, and work your way 
west, and take down the attack base.  Kill Yuan Shang, but during the 
battle, try to ignore Zhang He, as he will defect later on, making a good 
ally.  From here on, just go after Zhen Ji, defeat her, destroy the rams 
and arrow towers, and protect Cao Cao.

Guan Yu's Escape – This is quite possible the EASIEST stage ever.  Unless 
you suck at life, and can't play worth shit, you'll win.  Just eliminate 
anyone that comes near to the carriage, and take down the officers that 
stand in your way.  At the end, when the carriage stops and Xiahou Dun 
challenges you, ride back and take him down.

Escape from Chi Bi – Well, this is why Guan Yu is known as the God of 
War, his extreme loyalty, and codes of virtue.  He owed Cao Cao big, so 
he let him live after this.  If he had killed Cao Cao, history would have 
been SOOO different.  Anyway. I recommend you have a horse for this 
battle, preferably Red Hare.  Chase after Cao Cao, that's it.  Take out 
any officer that gets in your way, not any ON your way, any that gets in 
your way.  The main ones there are Xiahou Yuan, Cheng Yu, Xun Yu, and 
sometimes Liu Yan, Xiahou Dun and Zhang Liao.  Cao Cao will stop his 
marches sometimes, nail him when he stops.  Also watch out for the bridge 
collapsing in the beginning, which takes a lot of time off of catching 
Cao Cao.

Battle of Fan Castle – This Battle can be Quite Difficult.  Start off by 
rushing forwards and taking out the base in front of you, then rush up 
top, kill Yue Jin and Niu Jin, and protect the site of the water attack, 
until about 4 minutes in, when the attack commences.  When this is 
complete, go kill Pang De, to stop him from preventing the allied fleets 
preparations, kill Yu Jin, Dong Heng and Dong Zhao, and take out the 
supply and defense bases on the way.  Xu Huang will have arrived by now, 
and a cut scene will play, kill him before you go on the bridge. When you 
proceed to the bridge, move in and kill Cao Ren.  Now, kill Lu Xun and Lu 
Meng, when they come up top watch out for them, they are annoying. Also, 
watch out, a couple of your officers will defect to Wu when they show up, 
if they affect you too much.  And if you hold out long enough, Zhang Fei 
will show up with reinforcements.   (P.S.  You can lead Pang De into the 
ditch around Fan Castle just before the water attack commences, so you 
wont have to deal with him)

Weapons:

Starting Weapon - Crescent Blade - 5 power

2nd Weapon – Moon Blade – 10 power

3rd Weapon – Blue Dragon – 16 power

4th Weapon – Blue Moon Dragon – 38 power
(Charge 16, Horse 16, Defense 17, Attack 18, Life 18)

How to get 4th Weapon – (Battle of Fan Castle) – Start off by Rushing 
towards Yue Jin and Niu Jin (Cao Ren's sub-generals) and killing them.  
You must kill them before the river overflows.  Watch out for Yue Jin, 
his movements can be a little tricky, but he tends to move below the 
defense base in the top middle.  When the report "the river is getting 
too high// the Wei Army is moving to Higher Ground" watch out, you don't 
have much time left, maybe 20 seconds. The water attack sets off Around 4 
minutes (I had 4'03"73.) If you finished early, haul ass over to pang de, 
and lure him into the drooping land around the castle, when there are 
only a few seconds left, (hopefully you have red hare) haul ass to higher 
ground, and the cutscene will play, and surprise, you don't have to deal 
with Pang De!  The Valuable item will appear on one of the building in 
Fan Castle, lead to by the bridges within.  The cutscene with all the 
ships appearing will play, and just go get your weapon and kill Cao Ren! 
If you didn't have enough time, or you didn't succeed in killing Pang De 
with the water, then when the water attack commences, Finish the battle 
by killing, maiming and hurting until the Shu Navy gets into position.  
Kill Pang De and Yu Jin [especially Pang De], as they can become a 
nuisance. Ignore Xu Huang, unless he comes after you.  Move in, kill Cao 
Ren, then Lu Meng.  Don't forget to get your Weapon before the battle is 
up. Congrats.

Yellow Turban Rebellion, which is where he met his future "brothers" 
(they never actually made an oath), he went on to create the kingdom of 
Shu with them.  His major feat, is when he held off Cao Cao's army at the 
battle of Chang Ban, so that Liu Bei, may escape:

"At the sound of this thunderous voice, a terrible quaking fear seized 
upon Cao Cao, and he bade them take the umbrella away. Turning to his 
followers, he said, "Guan Yu had said that his brother Zhang Fei was the 
sort of man to go through an army of a hundred legions and take the head 
of its commander-in-chief, and do it easily. Now here is this terror in 
front of us and we must be careful." As he finished speaking, again that 
terrible voice was heard, 'I am Zhang Fei of Yan; who dares fight with 
me?'"

Although depicted as a violent alcoholic, Zhang Fei was actually an 
extremely intelligent man, and showed great respect for his superiors, 
but the same cannot be said about his inferiors. He later became one of 
Shu's five tiger generals.

Musou:

Battle of Hu Lao Gate - Red Hare is a big help here. Charge forward, only 
killing a couple of that huge group there, and head up to Xu Rong, kill 
him and take the gate which he's by.  From there on, take the attack 
base, killing anyone in your way, and head to the supply base.  Head to 
Hu Lao Gate, killing Hu Zhen, when you see him.  Take out the gate that 
you pass when you first come into the opening, and clear out a ton of 
units, including officers: Guo Si, Zhao Cen, Li Jue, Wang Fang, Li Meng 
and Gao Shun when he come out.  DO NOT KILL THE GATE CAPTAIN BY HU LAO 
GATE! LET SOMEONE ELSE DO IT.  Go clear the gate on the other side of the 
clearing, where Li Jue is, which can give you quite a bit of kills.  When 
Lu Bu finally is unleashed, if you're feeling a little brave, charge him.  
Wait for the cut scene, and flee, go help Cao Cao defeat Li Ru, and let 
your brothers take care of Lu Bu for a while.  When you come back, he 
should have a sizable portion of his health taken out.  Help them take 
him on, till your close to death, then just don't risk it, take off.  Be 
warned, STAY AWAY FROM HIM WHEN HE GLOWS RED OR GOLD, HE WILL KILL YOU IF 
HE ATTACKS, EVEN FROM JUST ONE!!!! If you didn't kill him, head up 
through Zhang Liao, kill him, listen to the little conversation, and head 
for Dong Zhuo.  Watch it, he will call for help from Lu Bu, so eliminate 
him fast.

Battle of Xia Pi – go forward, and attack the Defense, base, then the 
attack base above that (make sure you don't keep your bodyguard around 
the attack base, or they'll eventually die, in fact, I suggest that you 
command your bodyguard to stay before you go down the flight of stairs). 
By the attack base is Yin Li, so kill him too. Now, head back up the 
stairs, and kill off Wei Xu, and head into the castle, closing the gate 
and killing Diao Chan. Now, as you'll notice, those damn doors won't 
open. Damn, so head around the castle, over to the defense base that Cao 
Hong is struggling to defeat, and destroy all those pesky bases in that 
area, including Song Xian and Hou Cheng, who are to the left of the 
defense base.  Now, head north, and kill Zang Ba, and the gate up by him.  
Next, head east, and kill Cao Xing then Zhang Liao, along with the supply 
base.  Next, head to Gao Shun, and along with his defeat, is the collapse 
of the dam.  Now, just head into the castle, slay the soldiers, and kill 
(or capture) Lu Bu. 
P.S: If you fail to take the dam in time, and Yuan Shu's reinforcements 
show up, don't worry, they're in the southeast corner, just go and kill 
him.

Battle of Chang Ban – Here is the stuff of Zhang Fei's legends.  You 
start off on a very historical bridge, the one whose toll for passage, is 
death.  Kill anyone who attempts to pass the bridge, just stay n' slay, 
your one stop shop for carnage and death. After the advancements from the 
west stop, if you're feeling brave, you may advance on the gate above 
you, and destroy that.  Next, move westward, and kill the attack base, 
WHILE BEING CAUTIOUS, DO NOT LET ANY TROOPS PAST THAT BRIDGE!!! Watch 
out, Cao Zhang arrives with reinforcements, right above the bridges 
position. When that area is safe from invasion, head farther west, and 
take out the gate and Yu Jin, finishing off with the left-most gate.  
Now, the north should be safe for a while, so head south, to Xu Huang's 
unit and the supply base, to defeat them. Head farther south to the 
defense and attack bases, and destroy them, along with Cao Hong and Jia 
Xu (sub-generals: Jia Kui and Yue Jin are there as well).  Now, you have 
two choices: 
-A.) Help Liu Bei escape, in which case, just kill till he reaches the 
end, Or
-B.) Go up and kill Cao Cao, ending the battle right there.

Battle of Cheng Du – Start off and charge the gate ahead of you, kill Lei 
Tong to open it.  Once inside, kill Fei Guan and Deng Xian, and finally 
Liu Xun.  To the north of the castle is the gate captain, open the 
castle's northern gates.  Now, move out of the left castle gate, to Li 
Yan, kill him and the soldiers in that little area, and then move into 
Cheng Du castle.  Once Cheng Du is cleared out, head north, and kill 
Zhang Ren, if Pang Tong hasn't already died, you just saved him. Now, go 
in front of Cheng Du, to clear out Yan Yan and Wu Lan.  Eventually, the 
inner gates of Cheng Du Castle will open, go inside, clear the gate in 
there, and finally defeat Liu Zhang.  Ends with a cut scene.

Battle of Fan Castle - This Battle can be Quite Difficult.  Begins with a 
cut scene. Start off by charging forward, and taking out the defense 
base, continue heading forward and take out the supply base, defeating 
the gate captain and Sun Li on the way. Now, head forward more, and kill 
Jiang Ji, and the gate ahead even more, there is another one just below 
Jiang Ji's position, so destroy that too.  Head north, and destroy the 
two supply bases that are in succession, and head left, destroying that 
final one.  If the last two defense bases are still standing, take them 
out as well. Now, go kill Yu Jin and finally, Pang De (and with his 
death, you may now enter Fan Castle). Xu Huang will eventually show up, 
so slay him as well. Lu Meng (along with Xu Sheng) will show up when you 
meet up with Cao Ren, so now Kill Cao Ren (sub-generals: Yue Jin and Niu 
Jin).  If you wish, you may ignore Cao Ren, so that you may head for Lu 
Meng (Sub-generals: Lu Xun and Jiang Qin).

Attacks:

Charge: Stamps the ground, knocking enemies down.  It does not do good 
damage at all, but it is useful for making escapes, and getting ready to 
nail the enemy.

Jumping Charge: jumps, flips, and then falls down, stabbing the ground 
with spear and creating a huge explosion.

S: slashes right.

S2: Slashes right, then attacks left with butt of the spear.

fall to the ground, creating an explosion.

Weapons:

Starting Weapon - Bronze Pike - 5 power

2nd Weapon – Iron Pike – 11 power

3rd Weapon – Serpent Blade – 17 power

4th Weapon – Viper Blade – 39 power
(Fill 16, Horse 16, Defense 15, Attack 19, Musou 17)

How to get 4th weapon – Battle of Chang Ban – Bring a STRONG bodyguard to 
this battle, and command them to Stay at the bridge. Now, successfully 
defend your bridge, don't let anyone across. Kill anyone who attempts to 
pass the bridge, just stay n' slay, your one stop shop for carnage and 
death. After the advancements from the west stop, if you're feeling 
brave, you may advance on the gate above you, and destroy that. As Xiahou 
Dun and Wen Pin come, slay them.  Once Cao Zhang's reinforcements have 
arrived, and you've defeated them (of course) go after Xiahou En, Yu 
Jin's sub-general.  When the three generals are dead, the valuable item 
will appear right on the bridge that you defended.  Now, just protect Liu 
Bei until he escapes, or Kill Cao Cao when he appears.

------------------------------
-Ma Chao 
------------------------------

- Eldest son of Ma Teng, he travels the land seeking revenge against 
Cao Cao for the death of his father.  One of the five tiger generals of 
Shu. Note: He is EXCELLENT on a steed; his moves are fantastic for 
killing and charging through enemy lines.

Musou:
Battle of Liang Province – Oh My God is this easy.  Just kill enemies. 
Simple as that.  Get a lot of kills, as many as you can, follow the 
orders and whatnot at the bottom of the screen, and you'll win easily.  
Just fight your way to Dong Zhuo in the bottom of the screen, and you'll 
win easily.

Battle of Tong Gate – Like I said for the previous battle, you need a 
sizable amount of kills and upgrades for him here.  It helps if you have 
a horse here. Where you start, tell your bodyguard to stay, that is a 
major help to the gate right there. Start killing the enemies in front of 
the gate, kill Cao Hong, and take out that attack base. Once that's done, 
rush up top and take over those the three bases, (supply, defense and 
attack.)  As you rush past Cao Cao, just ignore that cut scene.  Once the 
bases are taken over, kill Jia Xu and Xu Huang, which ends any future 
trouble right there.  When that's all done and over with, take the path 
through the main area where the enemy started, back to tong gate.  Take 
over the supply base, and kill off Xiahou Yuan, Zhu Ling, Zhang He and Xu 
Zhu on your way. When it's all safe, just have fun overtaking gates, till 
you work back to Cao Cao.

Battle of Yi Ling - one major thing in this battle: KILL ZHU RAN. DO NOT 
LET THE FIRE ATTACK COMMENCE, IT IS A MAJOR PROBLEM.  Rush through enemy 
territory, don't risk waiting till the bridge drops, you may be too far 
away.  Kill Ling Tong and Gan Ning on the way, piece of cake.  From there 
on, just slay, kill and mutilate till you win.  Take care of Lu Xun; he's 
a major pain. Watch out for Zhao Yun, as he has a tendency to get killed 
here.  Another thing, watch out how far out you get, I died a lot in this 
battle, and you will too if you don't watch it, so when you go out after 
Zhu Ran, try to have a full Musou gauge, a full life bar, and a Musou 
rage.  Try to have the 3rd or 4th weapon by now, you can get it from the 
previous battle.  Not too hard.

Battle of Jie Ting – start off by going after Deng Ai, and fight to Cao 
Hong, killing Zhen Ji at the same time, and take out the supply base to 
the east.  Fight into the middle of the map, killing Fei Yao and Wang 
Lang.  If Sima Yi gets too annoying for you, just charge him and kill 
him, but take off fast, cause Ma Su needs help.  Fight up to Ma Su, Kill 
Cao Zhen and his two sub generals, Zhang Hu and Xin Pi (Zhang Hu starts 
on the path that you should take to Ma Su.) and save Ma Su.  When that's 
over with, fight to Zhang He, and then go kill Cao Pi.

Battle of Bai Di Castle – Start off by charging to Zhou Tai, he becomes a 
major pain in the ass, and yes, I shouldn't have to say this by now, but 
kill Xu Sheng (PUT HIM IN THE NEXT DW KOEI) on the way. When the peasants 
appear, go and save them, that's a major boost for ally morale.  Make 
sure Jiang Wei doesn't die, and when Gan Ning shows up, take care of him, 
so he doesn't take care of Bai Di Castle.  Other then that, have fun 
killing and saving generals and troops.


Attacks:

Charge: Spins on his spear, finishes by leaping into air and landing.

Jumping Charge: Jumps, and flies forward, twirling, and spinning his 
spear with him. (Good for knocking people off of horses.)

around and slashes again then finishes with one stab.

C4: Slashes forward, spins and attacks with butt of spear, turns back 
around and slashes again, slashes once more then finishes with whirlwind.

C5: Slashes forward, spins and attacks with butt of spear, turns back 
around and slashes again, slashes once more slashes downwards then spins, 
emitting a blue beam, which stuns enemies.

Musou: continuously stamps forward, twirling spear, then switching arms.  
Finishes with a spin on the spear (like the Musou) jumps down and slashes 
forward with spear.

True Musou: Same as Musou, except finishes by falling to ground, and 
jumping back up, creating a teal whirlwind, knocking enemies into air.

Weapons:

Starting Weapon - Iron Spear - 5 power

2nd Weapon - Stallion Spear - 10 power

3rd Weapon - Silver Stallion - 16 power

4th Weapon - Stallion Fury - 38 power
(20 Horse, Speed 15, Defense 16, Attack 17, Life 15)

How to get 4th weapon - Battle of Tong Gate - This is pretty easy, and 
fast. Just run over to Cao Cao, knock him off the horse, (you'll run into 
a cut scene with Xu Zhu stopping you) and hit him a few times.  When this 
is done, a valuable item will appear up top, near a base.  On your way, 
take the two unoccupied bases, and watch out for Xu Huang. Attack Cao Cao 
as he comes up, and if he starts to run, chase him down and kill him.  
Extremely easy.

-Huang Zhong 
------------------------------

- A master archer, this old man one served Hua Xuan.  Now serving under 
Liu Bei, he is one of Shu's five tiger generals.  He is the reason of 
Xiahou Yuan's death, and lived to a ripe old age.

Musou:

Battle of Cheng Du – Rush into the forest, and kill any ambushes, should 
the get in your way.  Rush over to Zhang Ren (an ambush appears as you 
ride up), and kill him, to prevent Pang Tong's death (Hell, if you do it 
before he dies, you get a valuable item! [The Hex Mark Saddle]). Now, you 
may go back into the forest, and kill the rest of the ambushes that 
appear (Liu Hans, Leng Bao's and Zhang Yi's ambush), and clear the three 
gates within the forest.  Next, move to the eastern gate of Cheng Du 
castle, and slay everyone in the area outside of it, then move inside the 
castle, slaying everyone within.  By now, Zhang Fei and//or Zhao Yun 
should have reached and opened the southern gate, so wait for the inner 
castle gate to open, move in, kill the gate up top, then take care of Liu 
Zhang.

Battle of Mt. Ding Jun – Head forward, and kill the gate captain (a pot 
with a Musou wine is next to the gate) and Xiahou Shang.  Now, take out 
the supply base, and Xiahou De, who is right next to the base.  Now, that 
Mount Tian Dang has been captured, a cut scene will play, (which seems 
familiar if you played this battle with a Wei officer) and march north, 
to where Zhao Yun is, and take the defense base ahead of him.  Cao Xiu is 
right on the other side of it, so kill him as well.  Li Dian is next, and 
then head for Zhang He (rush past Xiahou Yuan to kill Zhang He first, 
because Zhang He will interfere in that fight sometimes), then kill off 
Xiahou Yuan, and finally, the attack base.  If Yue Jin hasn't been 
defeated, go after him too.  Now, (if Cao Zhang hasn't been killed, take 
him out as well) head up to the enemy main camp, and kill Guo Huai, and 
wait for Cao Cao, and his "Liu Bei you Bastard" Comment, and slay Cao 
Cao.  Sweet, huh?

Conquest of Nan Zhong – Head forward, and take out the defense base and 
go to the center of the attack//defense base, and kill King Mulu. Now, if 
the attack base hasn't been conquered yet, go help with that.  Kill Meng 
Huo when he appears again, and head down to Ahui Nan and Dong Tu Na, kill 
them, and then to the (Right on the map, Left coming from the top) there 
is a secretive path, its noticeable by a hole in the wall covered by a 
tree.  Now, head over there, past Wei Yan, and take down the attack base 
ahead of him, making the swamp travelable, kill Meng Huo as he reappears. 
Kill king Duosi, Jinhuan Sanjie, and move into the next large area.  To 
the top of the large area, is another secret path, take that to kill Meng 
Huo, who has raided Ma Su. Now take down the attack base, hit pots to 
make them explode and to make killing those armor troops easier.  To end 
the Armor Troop assault, kill Wu Tugu, and if you feel like it, his sub-
officer, Mang Yachang.  Kill Meng Huo, as he reappears... again...  Now, 
kill Zhu Rong as she rushes the area, and Dalai Dongzhu and Yang Feng's 
reinforcements, and take the next hidden path (in the bottom of that same 
area) to the bottom path, and pincer the Defense base.  Now, move onto 
the Supply base, take Meng Huo out for last time(s), and move onto the 
main camp, Take him out one last time, and you beat the stage.

Battle of Chen Cang – Charge forward into the field, and kill all of the 
sub officers, whom are: Wang Shuang, Fei Yao and Zhang Hu.  Just keep on 
clearing enemies out here for a little while, and then head over to 
Xiahou Wei, who is in front of the gate with the spinning defense on the 
left side of the map. Stay over there, and kill off the rest of the 
troops on that side, then head back to the center, and kill them off for 
awhile.  Xiahou Ba should be in the center by now and Xiahou Hui will 
eventually show up too, so you can kill him off. Reinforcements (Cao Xiu) 
will appear in the bottom left, so go rush to them, and rescue the troops 
there.  A fire arrow unit will appear, so quickly dispose of them as 
well.  Cao Hong will appear in the southeast with reinforcements, so kill 
him, and them, off quickly.  From there, charge north through the 
mountain path, watching out for the ambush (multiple ambushes if the 
units there haven't made it too far).  When you get to the top of the 
mountain, another ambush should appear in the bottom left.  On your way 
down the mountain, to save them, Guo Huai should show up on the bottom 
right, so kill him, then rush over to the right, (killing Xu Zhu's 
reinforcements, who appear in the center) and kill off Cao Zhen to save 
them, again. On the way there, if Zhang He (who is now in the center) 
hasn't been killed, take him out. Charge into the castle in the now 
destroyed gate, and kill Hao Zhao, Cao Ren, Wang Lang and finally, Sima 
Yi (and his sub officers, Jia Kui and Sima Zhao).

Battle of Bai Di Castle – Head forward, and attack the gate ahead of you.  
Now move on to the enemy supply base (Defeating Zhu Huan and Quan Zong on 
the way) to the south.  Huang Gai should rush there, so kill him, and the 
gate at the very tip of the southeast corner.  Move on to the attack base 
to the left, behind Huang Gai's starting position.  Now, move on to Sun 
Shao, taking out the gate on the way.  Now, move up to Ma Chao, and help 
him save the Peasant Militia, kill Jiang Qin when you see him.  Zhou Tai 
will eventually work his way down to you, so kill him as well, and that 
saves the militia.  Now, move over the the attack base on the right (Han 
Dang is there, kill him), then go back after Ding Feng. Take out Zhuge 
Luo and the base in the bottom left corner, then move up to Lu Xun, who 
is at the top, and has probably worn off the effects of the Stone 
Sentinel Maze by now.  Kill Lu Xun, and head back down the way you came 
up, killing Pan Zhang on the way.  Go after Gan Ning's troops, who have 
appeared at the bottom right, and prevent him from entering the castle.  
Now, go after the supply bases on top (if they haven't already been), Sun 
Quan reappears on bottom, so go after him, kill him, and you win.

Attacks:

Charge: Shoots multiple arrows from a crossbow multiple times.  Keep 
pressing triangle to make attack longer. This move is spectacular, a 
great crowd clearer, and just screams abuse me.

Jumping Charge: Jumps, and flips forward, and while upside down in the 
air, shoots arrows from crossbow at the ground.

S: Slashes left. 

S2: Slashes left, then slashes right.

S3: Slashes left, slashes right, and then stabs forward.

C1: slashes left, spins and slashes in an uppercut fashion.

C2: Slashes left, slashes right, and then shoots out arrows, similar to 
normal charge, ending with a set of arrows with yellow energy surrounding 
them.  Keep pressing triangle to make attack longer.

C3: Slashes left, slashes right, stabs forward, then does a 360-spin 
attack, usually triggering Musou.

C4: Slashes left, slashes right, stabs forward, slashes diagonally, then 
hauls off and slams ground with weapon, creating an explosion.

C5: Slashes left, slashes right, stabs forward, slashes diagonally, 
slashes left once more, and then does two 360-spin attacks.

Musou: spins around and around in a 360 spin attack fashion continuously, 
and finishes by one final slash forward, stumbling forward when that's 
done.

True Musou: spins around and around, in a 360 spin attack fashion 
continuously, and finishes by knocking enemy into the air, shooting an 
arrow about 2 feet in front of him, and the arrow explodes just as the 
enemy (enemies) hit the ground, sending them flying.

Weapons:

Starting Weapon - War Sword - 4 power

2nd Weapon – Veteran Sword – 8 power

3rd Weapon – Sage Sword – 12 power

4th Weapon – Oracle Sword – 36 power
(Fill 18, Horse 15, Bow 20, Defense 15, Musou 15)

How to get fourth weapon – Battle of Mt. Ding Jun – Hurry up and kill 
Xiahou De (kill a lot of the units around him, a Musou Rage appears), and 
rush down the mountains upper right side path, to Xiahou Yuan.  Watch out 
for him, he's super charged, and quite annoying, and you need to kill him 
within three minutes of the capture of Mt. Ding Jun (kill a lot of units 
around him as well, two Musou rages should appear). Now, after Xiahou 
Yuan dies, a valuable item will appear near Zhao Yun, ignore that, it's 
an item (Way of the Musou), not a weapon.  Go on to kill Zhang He before 
Cao Cao arrives. When Cao Cao finally arrives, the valuable item will 
appear at the bottom of the hill that you rode down on, after Xiahou 
Yuan. Now, just get your weapon, and ride up to Cao Cao, and kill him.

Bodyguards - Who's Got Your Back?
__________________________________________________________________

Bodyguards are an essential part of the Dynasty Warriors Series.  On 
countless occasions, this game and past, they have saved my ass from 
ruin, as well as saved the map.  

You start the game with 4 bodyguards, Liu Ren, Cao Wu, Sun Chun and Lu 
Hua, all C rated officers, and yes, they suck.  But, have no fear, there 
are more to recruit.  Notice that there are 8 slots for potential 
bodyguards, and you can fire those awful officers later on.  

Now bodyguards fall under 4 categories:

Veteran - Starts strong, but their stat growth is restricted
Remarkable - Starts average, and growth is average
Brilliant - Starts low, and growth is significant
Superior - Starts high, and growth is significant (the best, obviously)

And these categories fall under another 4 categories, this guarantees 
growth in four attributes, Attack, Musou, Defense and Life:

C - One of the four attributes grow rapidly (known in one kingdom)
B - Two of the four attributes grow rapidly (known in two kingdoms)
A - Three of the four attributes grow rapidly (Known in three kingdoms)
S - Four of the four attributes grow rapidly (Known throughout the land)

Bodyguards can have a total of 6 weapons, Spears, Swords, Bows, 
Crossbows, Fans and Staffs (magic rod, these units are also spectacular 
defense) this has a lot to do with your fighting type, for people like Lu 
Bu, it might be better to get someone with a sword, or spear, so when the 
combined Musou is set off, they both attack the same circle.  Huang Zhong 
or Xiahou Yuan might use a crossbow or Bow unit, so their long-range 
attack nails in numbers.  I'll get more into this later.

The bodyguard also differs from DW4 by its level up system.  Kills no 
longer mean the only experience, yes they still do count with experience, 
but even if they get none they gain some.  Yes, confusing, I know, but 
this is how it is.

But, there is good news; Officers can now obtain skills and attributes!  
Another list here people:

Attributes:
-Fire (causes more damage when hit)
-Ice  (freezes enemy, so you can hit)
-Ying (Light Attacks)
-Yang (Dark Attacks, uses Musou for chance of automatic death)

Skills:
-Heal (Can be Obtained when general reaches level 3) (*One of three*~!)
The bodyguard will heal them self, and you if in distance, when health is 
low.

-Rage (Can be Obtained when general reaches level 3) (*One of three*~!)
When health is low, their attack power will double.

-Wall (Can be Obtained when general reaches level 3) (*One of three*~!)
When health is low, defense will double.


-Fame (Can be Obtained when general reaches level 5) (*One of three*~~#) 
Players army's morale is less likely to decrease.

-Link (Can be Obtained when general reaches level 5) (*One of three*~~#)
Less powerful attacks can wield more powerful weapons.

-Hire (Can be Obtained when general reaches level 5) (*One of three*~~#)
After battle, bodyguard is guaranteed to join.


-Item (Can be Obtained when general reaches level 6, can be rare, if stat 
growth is incomplete by this time, this will not be learned) (*One of 
two*~~~@) One extra item is guaranteed when battle is over.

-Find (Can be Obtained when general reaches level 6, can be rare, if stat 
growth is incomplete by this time, this will not be learned) (*One of 
two*~~~@) One extra weapon is guaranteed when battle is over.



Levels are increased with, as you guessed it, experience!  Here's another 
fun little information session.

Level increasing:

Level Two - 1000exp
Level Three - 2000exp
Level Four - 4000exp
Level Five - 7000exp
Level Six - 10000exp


The select button, as mentioned in the Controls - How to Direct Your 
Dynasty Warrior section above.  The sword is attack, attack any and all 
troops near you, the shield is defend, kill anyone who touches you or 
touched you, and the hand is stay, they remain in one area, and kill 
anyone in range.  

The last one, stay, is extremely helpful.  When I was playing Cao Pi's 
Musou, mission 4, Battle of Wu Zhang Plains, I commanded the officer to 
stay at the right hand defense station at the peak of enemy attacks, (she 
was strong by the way) she staved off the entire force for a long time, 
she lived the entire battle as well, I even called her down to help me 
take care of Jiang Wei.

As mentioned before as well, a Musou teeming bodyguard can also boost 
your Musou power, instead of normal, you now use your True Musou (True 
Musou: only usable with an item, or when your life is in the red, and 
Musou is automatically filling.)

Extra tidbit of information:
The bodyguard's color depends on your affiliation.
Wu officers: Red
Wei officers: Blue
Shu officers: Green

Unaligned officer colors are all different as well.
Lu Bu: White
Diao Chan, Dong Zhuo, Zhu Rong, Meng Huo: Purple
Yuan Shao, Zhang Jiao: Yellow
Zuo Ci: Green

P.S. didn't think of anywhere above to put this, but bodyguards are 
gained randomly, every time you beat a battle, there is a chance of 
obtaining one, no set way to get one, or a certain leveled one.

starting with the first of those in each kingdom, (1 Shu, 1 Wu, 1 Wei, to 
unlock Lu Bu, then beat him to unlock the edit movie) then finishing off 
one kingdom at a time, but no matter what, finish off with Other Forces.

- Son of Sun Jian, became ruler of Wu at 17 after his father died.  
Nicknamed "Little Conqueror" for the success on expanding the territory 
of Wu.  Sworn brother of Zhou Yu.

Musou:

The Yellow Turban Rebellion – Head forward, and kill Yan Zheng, and even 
farther ahead, Zhang Man Cheng. Take the path to the left, and kill Zhang 
Bao, go down, and take out the attack base (if it already hasn't been.) 
Now, head back to the area that you killed Zhang Man Cheng and Yan Zheng 
in, and take the right path, to Zhang Liang, (to avoid the tornados) and 
kill him.  If you feel like it, go after He Yi as well, by taking the 
path on the left of the castle.  Now, inside the castle, and on top of 
the altar, are four weird looking torches, with energy emanating from 
then, destroy them all, to find the true one, which will stop the phantom 
troops.  Now, seek and kill Zhang Jiao.

Battle of Si Shui Gate – go forward and kill Fan Chou, and all of the 
soldiers in the area before the defense base, which is well over 100, 
because I got 100 kills in less then a minute. Now, take over the defense 
base, and head into the middle, and kill all of the officers in there, 
which are Guo Si (sub officers: Xu Rong and Li Meng), Jia Xu and Dong 
Min.  Ji Jue's sub officer, Li Su is also at the top left of that area, 
so kill him too, and don't forget the attack base in the center.  When 
the call goes out to defeat the Defense base up top, stop whatever you 
are doing, and go defeat the base fast, then rush back to what you were 
doing.  Zhao Cen will show up as your fighting your way to the Si Shui 
Gate, so kill him off as well.  Lu Bu will show up from the gate too, and 
he's strong, but not unbeatable, just take your time and slowly take him 
out, but watch out, when he turns yellow, two swipes can take you out.  
If you don't defeat him in time, and your allies are forced to go around 
the gate, then head down and take care of the supply base, and Li Ru. 
When Lu Bu is finally dead, (and the second route is clear) go into the 
base, take out enemies at leisure, and finally kill Hua Xiong.

Battle of Jing Province – Note: To follow my walkthrough here, you need 
Red Hare.  Right off the bat, charge Huang Zu, don't let him get close to 
Sun Jian, and If he does, then kill him before he gets close to the 
castle. Now that Sun Jian has been saved, go into the center, and 
decimate the attack and supply base, and kill Cai Mao.  Now that the 
bases have been taken down, and the main door has opened, move inside and 
crush Kuai Liang, move over to Lu Gong (who's death triggers the opening 
of the outer eastern gate) leave the castle, killing many soldiers as you 
can. By now, the reinforcements have arrived, and you SHOULD be on the 
right side of the map, so head for Chen Sheng, and kill him and his 
troops.  Head out Shang Xiang if she hasn't broken through the defense 
base by now as well. Now, move back on to the inner castle, and 
eventually the inner sanctum (where Liu Biao is) kill off the soldiers, 
and finally, Biao himself.

Battle for the Wu Territory – Head forward, and capture the neutral base. 
Continue heading forward, charging through the area, to the next neutral 
base, procuring that as well.  Then head back, to where Chen Heng and 
Wang Lang (sub officer: Zhou Xin) are, and slay them, capturing that 
area. Now that all of them have been killed, chances are that Sun Quan 
has been caught in the trap already, so rush over to his aid, save him, 
by killing all of the officers in that base, which are: Fan Neng and Yu 
Mi. As your wrapping that up, Zhou Yu should have finished of Yan Baihu 
and Xue Li up top, allowing you to move on to the bottom base, from which 
Liu Yong has fled from, and Taishi Ci holds the key to battle. Move on to 
the defense base in the southeast corner, and move on to the castle, kill 
Taishi Ci (a cut scene occurs) and finish the battle.  Side Note: watch 
out, Taishi Ci is a pain in the ass.

The Trials of Sun Ce – Charge ahead, attack Yu Ji, and kill the phantom.  
Some dialogue, and four phantom Yu Ji's appear, kill them as well. 
Phantom soldiers appear, and since you can't do anything about them, 
ignore them on your quest to continue killing all of the Yu Ji's that 
appear. After about the sixth phantom you kill, the phantom soldiers 
disappear, but now your own soldiers have been turned against you, so 
regretfully, kill them. after about 50 KO's, four MORE phantoms appear, 
this bastard's really starting to get old.  He now makes your wife (Da 
Qiao) and your father (Sun Jian) and they aren't here to help you. Kill 
them two off, and watch the cut scene. A lot more Yu Ji phantoms appear 
(8, I think), so slay them all, and watch out, he's making them stronger. 
To deal with them, attack groups of soldiers to get your Musou up, and 
keep using it on him, a couple Musou rage tokens appear, so use them up 
as they come. He keeps getting stronger, the pain in the ass. Yu Ji 
finally appears! You can tell the real one by the extra long health bar, 
and the lightning that is emitted from his body. When you finally kill 
him, the battle ends, Phew.  It's a tiny battle, and relatively easy, but 
it sure is annoying.

Battle of Xia Kou – Starts with a cut scene, then head forward, destroy 
the attack base, Zhang Hu, Chen Sheng, Lu Gong, the supply base, then 
head to the southwest, defeating the defense base.  As soon as you are in 
the base, rush past everyone, to Cai Mao, and kill him, defending the 
main base from his fleet.  Now, go after Wen Pin, the supply base inside 
the enemy's base, and the defense base to the left.  Go after Gan Ning 
and the attack base on the far left, then head up after Huang Zu.

Attacks:

Charge: Stamps the ground, knocking enemies down.  It does not do good 
damage at all, but it is useful for making escapes, and getting ready to 
nail the enemy.

Jumping Charge: jumps air, stays in one spot while flips, and slams his 
tonfas into the ground, making a shock around him.

S: Swings tonfa right.

S2: Swings tonfa right, then left.

S3: Swings tonfa right, then left, then stabs both forward.

S4: Swings tonfa right, then left, stabs both forward, and then does a 
roundhouse kick.

S5: Swings tonfa right, then left, stabs both forward, performs a 
roundhouse kick, and then a diagonal slash (left to right) with the 
tonfa.

S6: Swings tonfa right, then left, stabs both forward, performs a 
roundhouse kick, then a slashes diagonally (left to right) with the 
tonfa, and then leaps into the air and kicks forward.
(Evolution attack triggered, if acquired)

C1: Swings tonfa right, then does a backward flip with a kick.

C2: Swings tonfa right, then left, then repeating smacks with the tonfa, 
finishing by leaping forward with a roundhouse kick.  Keep pressing 
triangle to make attack longer.

C3: Swings tonfa right, then left, stabs both forward, and then spins, 
charges tonfa, and spins again, this time attacking with tonfa.

C4: Swings tonfa right, then left, stabs both forward, performs a 
roundhouse kick, and then throws body and arm forward, making an 
explosion.  Great crowd clearer.

C5: Swings tonfa right, then left, stabs both forward, performs a 
roundhouse kick, then a slashes diagonally (left to right) with the 
tonfa, then stabs continuously with tonfa's, left then right, and 
finishes with one final charged stab forward.  Keep pressing triangle for 
a longer attack.

Musou: Spins tonfa in his hand, spins around, then spins tonfa around in 
his hand with opposite hand continuously, finishes by spinning the tonfas 
around in his hands, and jumps into the air, spinning around.

True Musou: Spins tonfa in his hand, spins around, then spins tonfa 
around in his hand with opposite hand continuously, finishes by jumping 
back, emitting a blue shock wave, and then leaping forward, creating a 
giant explosion.

Weapons:

Starting Weapon – Tonfa – 4 power

2nd Weapon – Studded Tonfa – 8 power

3rd Weapon – Conqueror – 12 power

4th Weapon – Overlord – 36 power
(Charge 15, Speed 18, Attack 18, Musou 15, Life 15)

How to get fourth weapon – The Trials of Sun Ce – Head forward, and 
defeat the Yu Ji.  Now, attack the phantoms Yu Ji's, until you find the 
real one, and the Phantom Soldiers are summoned.  Keep fighting the 
phantom Yu Ji's, ignoring the soldiers, and they will eventually 
disappear, but your soldiers will appear, and they are against your. Now, 
Kill 50 of your soldiers, and more Yu Ji's will appear.  When they are 
defeated, Sun Jian and Da Qiao will appear, and on Yu Ji's side, even 
worse.  Kill them, and continue to fight the phantoms. If you aren't that 
good of a fighter, save now, and continue saving from now on, every time 
you defeat a Yu Ji. Multiple Phantom Yu Ji's will now appear, and you 
must kill them all, and watch out, he makes them progressively stronger, 
but Musou Rage tokens appear a couple of times.  BE CAREFUL! Don't kill 
the real Yu Ji; you'll know him by the near 2 bars of health. If you 
killed all of these within 10 minutes of the stages beginning, the 
valuable item will appear in the north quadrant, on the left side of the 
gate.

------------------------------
-Sun Jian 
------------------------------

- Nicknamed "The Tiger of Jiang Dong," Sun Jian first gained recognition 
when he outsmarted a band of pirates at age 17.  Gaining even more 
recognition in The Yellow Turban Rebellion and in the campaign against 
Dong Zhuo, he set in motion the power of the Sun family, which would 
later become one of the Three Kingdoms.

Musou:

The Yellow Turban Rebellion – I hope you have, and are on red hare by 
now.  Charge up, past Sun Ce, Huang Gai and Han Dang, and kill Yan Zheng, 
and even farther ahead, Zhang Man Cheng. Take the path to the left, and 
kill Zhang Bao, go down, and take out the attack base (if it already 
hasn't been.) Now, head back to the area that you killed Zhang Man Cheng 
and Yan Zheng in, and take the right path, to Zhang Liang, (to avoid the 
tornados) and kill him.  If you feel like it, go after He Yi as well, by 
taking the path on the left of the castle.  Now, inside the castle, and 
on top of the altar, are four weird looking torches, with energy 
emanating from then, destroy them all, to find the true one, which will 
stop the phantom troops.  Now, seek and kill Zhang Jiao.

Battle of Si Shui Gate - go forward and kill Fan Chou, and all of the 
soldiers in the area before the defense base, which is well over 100, 
because I got 100 kills in less then a minute. Now, take over the defense 
base, and head into the middle, and kill all of the officers in there, 
which are Guo Si (sub officers: Xu Rong and Li Meng), Jia Xu and Dong 
Min.  Ji Jue's sub officer, Li Su is also at the top left of that area, 
so kill him too, and don't forget the attack base in the center.  When 
the call goes out to defeat the Defense base up top, stop whatever you 
are doing, and go defeat the base fast, then rush back to what you were 
doing.  Zhao Cen will show up as your fighting your way to the Si Shui 
Gate, so kill him off as well.  Lu Bu will show up from the gate too, and 
he's strong, but not unbeatable, just take your time and slowly take him 
out, but watch out, when he turns yellow, two swipes can take you out.  
If you don't defeat him in time, and your allies are forced to go around 
the gate, then head down and take care of the supply base, and Li Ru. 
When Lu Bu is finally dead, (and the second route is clear) go into the 
base, take out enemies at leisure, and finally kill Hua Xiong.
(side note: if you employ the gate KO trick, you can get a lot of KO's 
from this battle, from the gates at the bottom left, and the top right, 
no AI officers bother to take these out.)

Battle of Jing Province – Head forth, and kill Huang Zu, that bastard 
normally kills you, but not this time.  Kill him before he gets to the 
western gate of the castle, then just attack till get to that western 
gate, then turn away, and go and help in the middle. Destroy the attack 
and supply base, and kill Cai Mao.  Now that the bases have been taken 
down, and the main door has opened, move inside and crush Kuai Liang, 
move over to Lu Gong (who's death triggers the opening of the outer 
eastern gate) leave the castle, killing many soldiers as you can. By now, 
the reinforcements have arrived, and you SHOULD be on the right side of 
the map, so head for Chen Sheng, and kill him and his troops.  Head out 
Shang Xiang if she hasn't broken through the defense base by now as well. 
Now, move back on to the inner castle, and eventually the inner sanctum 
(where Liu Biao is) kill off the soldiers, and finally, Biao himself.

Battle of Chi Bi – head forward, and take out the gate and defeat Wen Pin 
a Xun You. You started off near an entry point to the ships, so take 
that, and go right two ships, up one, and right one more, above that is a 
bridge, kill Cai Mao, to destroy the bridge.  Next, fight your way over 
to Wang Lang (Cao Hong's sub general), and kill him, destroying the other 
bridge.  Now, just fight your way around, protecting Zhuge Liang and 
Huang Gai most of all, and wait until the fire attack proceeds.  Until 
then, you might want to take out Xiahou Yuan and Zhang Liao, possibly 
even Zhen Ji. When the fire attack commences, go up the left side of the 
map, and fight your way around, finishing off Cao Pi, and any other 
officers who haven't been defeated yet, finally finishing off with Cao 
Cao.

Battle of He Fei - start off by rushing the defense base in the center of 
the map (straight ahead of you).  Man Chong should be inside the base, so 
take him out as well.  When you're done, head outside the base and take 
care of Niu Jin and Pang De (Niu Jin first, cause he'll run when Pang De 
is defeated).  While fighting them, Cao Zhang should show up with 
reinforcements, so feel free to take him out as well.  Now, take out the 
gates that are right below the defense base. Zhang Liao's ambush should 
have shown up by now, so rush over there and take him out, and save Sun 
Quan from the arrogant bastard. Next, head for the supply base above the 
defense base you defeated, then go for the next defense base to the left 
of the defeated defense base you conquered, the one right above where Xu 
Huang's ambush. Now, go south, and take out the supply base, Xu Huang and 
Yue Jin, along with the gate and soldiers, of course.  By now, Xiahou Dun 
and Cao Hong's reinforcement units have shown up, along with the annoying 
Zhang Liao, take them out, along with Li Dian and Yu Jin who up there as 
well, and don't forget the defense base and two supply bases up top, 
along with taking out the supply base below He Fei Castle on the way.  
Head back to the southwest, and defeat Zhang Liao who appeared once more 
to the bottom, and head to the top.  Take Zhang Liao out one last time, 
and defeat Cao Cao.

Battle of Yi Ling - Charge forward to the supply base ahead of you, and 
just have fun killing until Zhu Ran is ready to initiate the fire attack.  
When Wu Lan, Guan Suo, Ma Dai, Guan Xing and Li Yan get in your way, slay 
them. The death of Li Yan will trigger Liao Hua to attack you, take him 
out as well.  Hurry up to Zhu Ran when the bridge layers activate, to 
protect him, and make sure the fire attack is carried out.  Keep 
fighting, and charge through the stone sentinel maze*, and seek out Liu 
Bei's main base.  Now, you can do one of two things, just kill Liu Bei 
(Cut scene occurs when you get within range of him) and get it over with, 
or have fun and slay the rest of the officers and troops on the screen.  
I choose, and recommend the latter, as because Zhuge Liang is a major 
pain in the ass.  Have fun.
(*Note: easy way through the maze, follow the enemy troops, if you keep 
running into fresh troops, your doing good.)

Battle of He Fei Castle – Go down a little bit, and to the left, and 
charge ahead and defeating the gate captain, watch out, troops appear 
from behind and may attack you by surprise. Storm into the castle, and 
kill Wen Pin, and go north, taking out Wang Lang.  Go around the castle, 
to the inner castle, and take out Xiahou Shang and Cao Hong on the way.  
In the castle, kill Cao Zhen, Cao Ren and if you feel like venturing 
farther north, Xu Zhu.  But, first, take out the catapult's Defense 
captains (who are on top of the castle walls, on each side of the inner 
castles front gate).  If you accidentally jump, fall or are knocked over 
the wall (for example, you knock Cao Zhen over the wall on accident and 
jump over cause you are not letting that bastard escape O=) Ahem,) just 
wait at the front gate, by the ram, and wait for the door to open, it 
shouldn't take too long.  Next, fight through the western indirect route 
into the castle (where Cao Zhang is//was), and route the troops over 
there, and if you see Zhen Ji, get rid of her.  Now, leave out of the 
side of the castle, and go down, and right, past the outer castle's main 
gate, over to the ships, and seek out Cao Rui, Man Chong and the Task 
Leaders. Next, head up to Sima Yi and (Zhen Ji if she wasn't down below) 
Cao Pi, and kill them.

Battle of Bai Di Castle – Go ahead, up towards Huang Zhong (taking out a 
few of those pesky Peasant militia's on the way, easy kills), killing his 
two sub-officers (Yan Yan and Wang Ping) before finally killing him. 
After killing Huang Zhong, take the path to the right of his location 
(before he died), down to the Attack base and Gate.  Take those out, and 
kill troops for a little while, don't venture out too far, stay away from 
Xing Cai for now.  Now, when Ma Chao shows up, head back to the allied 
main camp, and kick his ass, but watch out he's pissed off and super 
charged.  When that's done, head north, and take out the stone sentinel 
maze (do this by going around the map, clockwise (top to right to bottom 
then up into the middle) and smashing the golden statue.  This will 
trigger "maze guardians" to appear, kill them and the maze will bust wide 
open. Now, head back down to the ally base, and head east, destroying the 
Supply base, Attack base, Liao Hua, Guan Suo and Guan Xing, not 
forgetting the gate in the bottom right of the map.  Allied 
reinforcements will show up (Gan Ning) and you may head north, entering 
the castle from the east. Destroy the Supply base directly behind, and 
head into the castle, watch out for the arbalests.  If Jiang Wei hasn't 
been defeated yet, take him out, and watch for Yue Ying's reinforcements, 
and Xing Cai storms into the castle, extremely pissed off.  Kill them, 
along with Liu Chan, and you win.

Weapons:

2nd Weapon – Tiger Claw – 8 power

3rd Weapon – Lone Tiger – 12 power 

4th Weapon – Savage Tiger – 34 power
(Fill 18, Horse 16, Defense 16, Musou 15, Life 15)

How to obtain fourth weapon – Battle of Si Shui Gate – Charge ahead, and 
get through the defense base ahead of you, and go up to the defense base 
on the left, in the upper right hand corner.  Defeat that, and fight your 
way over to Si Shui Gate.  When Lu Bu appears, kill him within five 
minutes of his appearance.  Pointers, since this is one of the latter 
people you get, you should have high leveled Peacock amulets, tiger 
amulets and turtoise amulets, use them.  When I obtained this, I only had 
three item slots, seeing as I only played two battles with Sun Jian.  
Make sure you have a Musou rage token, try to get the defense//attack 
X2's, and watch out for when he turns yellow.  There is a Full Heal on 
the left side of the bridges, heading down to the long way around Si 
Shui, so if you need it, use it, and once you have Lu Bu's health down to 
one bar, save.  When that's done, the valuable item will appear right in 
front of the Si Shui Gate.  When that's done, you can choose to either 
slay, kill and maim, or just head straight for Hua Xiong.

-Sima Yi 
------------------------------

- Wei's tactical genius, his strategy knew no bounds. Said to rival that 
of Zhuge Liang, his son and grandson lead on Wei, defeating Shu and even 
convincing Cao Cao's descendent to give up the throne.

Musou:

Battle of Fan Castle – Start by heading left, and taking out the enemy 
supply base.  Keep fighting left, and et to the dam and kill Guan Ping in 
a hurry, and Guan Suo on the way.  When the water attack has been 
thwarted, just head south, defeating the supply base next to the damn 
first, then on to the defense base. Fight to the right, all the way 
through the defense base, and two supply bases, killing Meng Da on the 
way, if he hasn't already charged at you.  Cut scene shows, Wu 
reinforcements show up, just keep going. Basically from the water attack 
on, it's extremely simple, just fight and kill.  Finish Guan Yu to end 
the battle.

Battle of Jie Ting – Head to the center, and take out Zhang Bao, Gao 
Xiang and Liao Hua, and any other troops in your way.  Use your Charge 
attack, as it's an effective crowd clearer.  When that's all over with, 
if you have the time, and feel like killing a lot more, head through the 
top way to Ma Su, and if not, just kill Ma Su right there, taking out 
Jian Yong on the way. When they're dead, just use a pincer attack on the 
troops up top.  When the summit has been taken, ride the bridge down to 
where Wang Ping is stationed, and take him, and his sub general Guan Xing 
out.  Eliminate the gate as well.  Jiang Wei should have charged you by 
now, so defeat him, then rush over to help defeat Wei Yan and Ma Dai 
(ignore Xing Cai, shes useless anyway), as per the instructions.  On your 
way back (Zhuge Liangs shown up by now) defeat Ma Chao, and if you feel 
like it, kill Xing Cai.  Defeat Zhuge, and you win.

Battle of Chen Cang – Rush forward out of the base, and take down the 
enemy's gate, and kill Zhang Yi and Liao Hua.  After fighting enemies on 
the wall for about 20 seconds, jump down, and make quick work of Zhang 
Bao and Guan Xing. Be careful not to get overwhelmed too fast.  When 
they're dead, quickly head to the top right of the castle, where Fei Yao 
is getting overwhelmed by enemy forces, and eliminate all those peons.  
Gao Xiang should be there, kill him, and fight your way out of the gate, 
and over to Wang Ping.  Kill him.  Continue fighting your way down the 
mountain path destroying any rams on the way, and you'll run across Ma 
Dai and Wei Yan, kill them, and head down to the Defense base on the 
bottom right.  Defeat that and it will end all those annoying damn siege 
weapons.  Watch out for the enemy reinforcements, it's not a large force; 
they're mostly just annoying.  Fight your way through the defense base in 
the middle (that will stop siege ramps), to help defend the main gate of 
the castle, from Huang Zhong and Yan Yan. Kill Yue Ying and Chen Shi on 
the way.  But, by the time you get to Huang Zhong, Zhuge Liang should 
have showed up already, so just kill him, and you win.

Battle of Wu Zhang Plains – Start off by charging the two attack bases in 
the center, and eliminating as many troops as possible (might be smarter 
to defeat the right one first, seeing as how you have to go left next).  
Listen to Sima Yi's instructions, and rush over to help Zhong Hui into 
the castle, those catapults are a major help, do not let them slip away.  
After his safety has been assured, rush to the middle gate on the right 
side of the map, and defeat any of the wood ox you see on the way.  Kill 
the defense captain, and take over the base while you're at it.  Fight 
your way up, taking over the defense base and the gate up top, and move 
out middle, helping any base that might need it.  Kill Ma Dai and Wei 
Yan.  Go after Wang Ping, and kill any troops that might have made it 
past an attack base.  When the cut scene plays, rush the center, but 
watch out, another cut scene will play, and you'll have to destroy the 
arbalests.  Once they're gone, victory is almost assured, only way to 
lose, is die.  Go after Yue Ying, destroy the Task Force, and then kill 
Jiang Wei.

Battle of He Fei Castle – to start off, go around the castle walls, take 
either left or right, it doesn't matter, just get to the front main gate.  
When there, the ram should have appeared by now, destroy it.  If not, 
have patience; kill some troops whilst you wait.  Once it's gone, go on a 
killing spree, you're free to do so for a while, kill Taishi Ci or Cheng 
Pu.  Now, a New Ram and the Wu navy will have showed up by now, Take down 
the ram first (which is on the enemy ship), then attack the Wu navy, 
which consists of Pan Zhang (Dong Xi) and Jiang Qin (Chen Wu). When the 
enemy on the hill attacks, the Wei army mobilizes, as the army gets 
pissed off and rushes at Sun Quan. Go after Lu Xun, he has entered the 
castle's left wing by now, and the army is heading at him (cut scene), so 
pincer him, and kill him.  Then go after Sun Quan.  Kill Zhou Tai, take 
over the gate on his ship, go after Sun Quan and you've won.

ahead.

True Musou: sends out lots of strong blue beams in many directions, and

3rd Weapon – Black Feather – 10 power

4th Weapon – Dark Feather – 32 power
(Charge 15, Fill 15, Defense 16, Attack 15, Musou 19)

How to get fourth weapon – Battle of Chen Cang – Rush down to the defense 
base all the way on the bottom right.  While defeating the gate guard for 
that base, Wei Yan gets in the way, so just kill him, that'll save a lot.  
Now, take that base.  Move to the middle base, while taking that out, 
Jiang Wei gets in the way; dispose of him as you did Wei Yan.  When that 
base is out of the way, take care of that last base, on the bottom left, 
Huang Zhong is in the way of that one, so, just let D้jเ vu set in, and 
you'll be set.  The valuable item will appear in the castle, around where 
you started.  Don't forget to grab the weapon before you kill Zhuge.

-Cao Cao 
------------------------------

- Ruler of Wei, nicknamed "The Hero of Chaos" Cao Cao led many successful 
campaigns against leaders and rulers.  He gained most of his recognition 
in the Yellow Turban Rebellion and the campaign against Dong Zhuo.  
Usurped the power of the imperial court to his advantage, and had a weak 
spot for beautiful women.

Musou:

The Yellow Turban Rebellion – You should have red hare by now.  Turn 
around, and head upwards, the path that Sun Jian is pointed towards. 
Charge up, past Sun Ce, Sun Jian, Huang Gai and Han Dang, and kill Yan 
Zheng, and even farther ahead, Zhang Man Cheng. Take the path to the 
right, over to Zhang Liang and kill him (do this to avoid the tornado's). 
Now, if the supply base between Zhang Liang and your starting postion 
hasn't been captured yet, take that out, them move up, towards the 
castle.  From here out, kill every general and base and troop outside the 
castle, there is prime chance to get a lot of kills here, go over to the 
gate on the outside of the castle, to the left of it, and kill all the 
troops over there, that's a great kill zone.  Once you move inside the 
castle, on top of the altar there are four weird looking torches, with 
energy emanating from them. Destroy them all and that will stop the 
phantom troops.  Now, seek and kill Zhang Jiao, (taking out the gates and 
troops inside, as well).

Battle of Hu Lao Gate – The beginning is hard here, seeing as how you're 
the only troops there. Head forward, and take out the Defense base ahead 
of you, and keep fighting up to the attack base and Li Ru. As your 
working your way up, Li Su will appear in the area between the defense 
base and Li Ru with an ambush, take that out too. Soon, Liu Bei, Gongsun 
Zan and Yuan Shao will appear to help, but strangely I have yet to see 
Sun Jian.  Keep fighting upwards, to the Hu Lao Gate, and kill as many 
soldiers as you can, IGNORE THE GATE GUARD IN FRONT OF THE HU LAO GATE! 
THAT TRIGGERS LU BU!  Let someone else destroy that, then try to take 
him, (To take Lu Bu: knock him down, and get behind him and continuously 
attack him from there.  I recommend having a Musou Rage, save when he's 
at the end of the first bar of health, and when he glows yellow, Get tf 
out of there. There is also a Full Heal next to the gate just below the 
Hu Lao Gate, use it if needed.) Now, when he's dead, and the second gate 
opens, ignore it, take the indirect route, this way you get more kills 
^^. Now, head into the gate, kill Zhang Liao and Jia Xu on the way, and 
finish off Dong Zhuo.

Battle of Xia Pi – Read the 4th weapon guide, it's easy to get, and if 
you do it, you'll know what's going on here.  Move forward, and take out 
the enemy defense base.  Move even farther ahead, to the bridge that 
takes you to an attack base, and Song Xian, and of course, kill them.  
Head back across the river, and move up, to Zang Ba, and the gate and 
troops up there.  Kill them, and move over to Zhang Liao and the supply 
base, then go kill Gao Shun. Move into the castle, and save the the 
defected Wei Xu and Yin Li, and kill Diao Chan.  Finally, move on to Lu 
Bu, I recommend killing him, so you get extra points, but if he runs, it 
provides an extra cut scene at the end, your choice really.  

Battle of Guan Du - Watch out here, this battle is easy to start screwing 
up in.  Start off by pushing forward through the castle, and heading 
towards Yan Liang. Leaving your STRONG bodyguard at the top gate of Bai 
Ma Castle, to protect from invaders, head towards him, slaughtering him 
as you get near him.  You may also want to stop off to the left of the 
castle first, to kill his sub-general, Han Meng (If your going to go this 
way, get rid of that damn attack base above you, as its extremely 
annoying).  Once this is done, just continue fighting, and Liu Bei shall 
move towards you, Head after him and defeat him and Jian Yong, so that 
Guan Yu doesn't find him.  What? It's an officer kill, worth good points, 
and the prick probably withdraws anyway.  Any who, head to Yuan Tan, and 
slaughter him, and work you're way west, and take down the attack base.  
Kill Yuan Shang, but during the battle, try to ignore Zhang He, as he 
will defect later on, making a good ally.  From here on, just go after 
Zhen Ji, defeat her, destroy the rams and arrow towers, and kill as many 
troops as you can. Yuan Shao might charge into the battlefield, but if 
not, just head up top to him and kill him.
(Watch out that you don't get overwhelmed here easily, the battle does 
tend to do that sometimes.)

Escape from Chi Bi – Oh boy, your life is at stake here. Head out, and an 
ambush appears, with Cheng Pu leading the assault, kill Dong Xi, and by 
then enemy reinforcements should show up. The enemy reinforcements (Han 
Dang) also appear behind you, using a pincer attack on you, so turn 
around, and kill him too, then go after Cheng Pu. Charge forwards, and 
head up, into the dead end peninsula, and destroy the pot at the 
beginning, which contains a Musou Wine. Now, its not surprising, there's 
another ambush, and this one consists of Zhu Zhi, and his sub officer 
Chen Wu, kill them and march forward. Now, Zhang Liao shows up, right 
next to Zhu Zhi, so you can take the choice to charce ahead, taking the 
upper path, or kill Zhu Zhi yourself.  Now, Zhao Yun shows up with his 
sub officer, Mi Zhu, making life more of a hassle for you, kill him as 
well. Once again, Xiahou Dun arrives, and you have the choice of Fight or 
Flight. Now, Zhang Fei's ambush arrives, kill him and Jian Yong. Wen Pin 
arrives, and again, fight or flight. Now, guess who? Give up? Guan Ping 
and his lovely assistant, Zhou Cang!  Kill em. Xu Zhu shows up next to 
help, but Guan Ping should be dead, or almost dead, by now.  Sun Quan 
shows up at the BOTTOM now, with sub officers Zhuge Jin, Lu Su and Jiang 
Qin. Go down, and slay him.  In a couple of minutes, Liu Bei will appear 
at the top with sub officers Sun Qian and Mi Fang. Kill him, and you win. 
But, as you make you way up, you run into Guan Yu, he'll let you escape, 
but screw that, kill him and get some extra points at the end.

Battle of He Fei – go forward and kill Ma Zhong, and take down that 
defense base.  Pan Zhang and Ding Feng are close by too, so take them 
down as well. Now, Yue Jin is probably in trouble, so go help him out, 
kill of the troops and whatnot. Xu Huang should show up soon, and help 
you take that whole area in the bottom, so just go along with it.  If Gan 
Ning's reinforcement unit hasn't yet shown up, wait for him, and when 
they do, they show up right next to the castle in the northwest, so go 
kill Gan Ning. Next, move over to the right (taking out Chen Wu and Zhu 
Ran on the way), and take out Taishi Ci's group, Zhu Zhi's group and the 
two defense bases up top. Now, head down, take out the supply base, Zhuge 
Jin and Jiang Qin on the way.  Kill Taishi Ci, and head on to Sun Quan, 
eliminating him.  

Battle of Wu Zhang Plains – Start off by destroying the gate below you, 
and the defense base below that.  Now, Zuo Ci will show up, kill him, 
then charge the two attack bases in the center (right one first, then 
left), and eliminating as many troops as possible. Now, quickly, go 
defeat the Guard Captain on the right side of the map, he's right below 
the defense base in the middle, and next to the middle gate on the right 
side of the map, defeat any wood oxen you see on the way. Now, listen to 
Sima Yi's instructions, and rush over to help Zhong Hui into the castle, 
those catapults are a major help, do not let them slip away.  After the 
catapult's safety has been assured, take over the defense base no the 
right, along with the other two gates on the right side (above the 
river).  Fight your way up, taking over the defense base and the gate up 
top, and move out middle, helping any base that might need it.  Kill Ma 
Dai and Wei Yan.  Go after Wang Ping, and kill any troops that might have 
made it past an attack base.  When the cut scene plays, rush the center, 
but watch out, another cut scene will play, and you'll have to destroy 
the arbalests.  Once they're gone, victory is almost assured, only way to 
lose, is to die.  Go after Yue Ying, destroy the Task Force, and then 
kill Jiang Wei.

Battle of He Fei Castle - To start off, fight your way around the castle 
walls, take either the left or right path, it doesn't matter, just get to 
the inner main (front) gate.  When there, the ram should have appeared by 
now, destroy it.  If not, have patience; kill some troops whilst you 
wait.  Once it's gone, go on a killing spree, you're free to do so for a 
while, kill Taishi Ci or Cheng Pu.  Now, a New Ram and the Wu navy will 
have showed up by now, Take down the ram first (which is on the enemy 
ship), then attack the Wu navy, which consists of Pan Zhang (Dong Xi) and 
Jiang Qin (Chen Wu). When the enemy on the hill attacks, the Wei army 
mobilizes, as the army gets pissed off and rushes at Sun Quan. Go after 
Lu Xun, he has entered the castle's left wing by now, and the army is 
heading at him, so pincer him, and kill him.  Then go after Sun Quan.  
Kill Zhou Tai, take over the gate on his ship, go after Sun Quan and 
you've won.

your red hare, charge at Gao Shun, for which you'll need to encompass the 
lake at the top.  Get to him, and kill him before he says something about 
defending the dam, and you're still in the running (A message will appear 
that he is heading for them and reinforcing them and whatnot, but that is 
not the message).  Now, go after, and kill Zhang Liao, and the valuable 
item will appear below Wei Xu's unit, to the left, just outside the 
castle wall.  Now, just seek out Lu Bu, he's supercharged, watch out, and 
you win.  I got this after the 2nd Musou mission, not hard.

How to get 4th weapon – Battle of Mt. Ding Jun – Ok, going to need a 
horse here, and a foreword, I died A LOT here, trying to get this, damn 
old bastard gets in my way too many times. From the start, charge Wu Lan 
and his sub general, Chen Shi.  After him, go down to Zhao Yun defeating 
them, and the sub officers Liu Feng and Zhang Yi.  After that, go after 
Wei Yan and Meng Da, but do NOT cut through the hill, go back the way you 
came, or Huang Zhong will go after Xiahou Yuan.  You should run into Lei 
Tong and Li Yan on the way back, so kill them too. When Wei Yan and Meng 
Da are dead, charge back to the bottom of the hill, where you killed Chen 
Shi, and kill Guan Ping and Yan Yan. Then, when they are dead, go after 
Huang Zhong, but be wary, he's a nasty ol' bastard (when he says "I'm 
prepared to fight to the death", and starts to glow yellow, get the hell 
away from him.)  While fighting him, his damn archer units get extremely 
annoying, so take them out while still on your horse.  After Huang 
Zhong's death, Cao Cao will show up, and so will the Valuable Item, which 
appears on the bottom, where you defeated Zhao Yun.  When that's all 
done, charge the rest of the bases on the map, if you wish, take it easy, 
and kill Liu Bei.

Shu's Officers: The Fighters in Green
-----------------------------------------

------------------------------
-Zhuge Liang 
------------------------------

- One of the most brilliant minds in the history of China, Zhuge Liang 
(a.k.a. Kong Ming, Sleeping Dragon) orchestrated the rise of Shu, and 
directed its warriors to the greatest heights. Orphaned as a young child, 
he was raised by his uncle, a governor in southern china.  Soon hid 
himself away as a hermit, until Liu Bei visited him to recruit him.  It 
was not until the third visit, that he joined Shu.

Musou:

Battle of Chang Ban – Rush forward, and take the neutral base ahead of 
you.  If you're on a horse, which I recommend at all times, conquer the 
next two defense bases going down, then haul ass back up to the first one 
you conquered, and help kill, to prepare for the fire attack.  Kill Li 
Dian and Zhu Ling.  Cut scene.  If you did as I told you, Liu Bei will do 
fine the rest of the battle, now it's your turn to get kills.  Don't 
forget, his charge attack is invaluable; it's an excellent crown clearer.  
Head to the top of the map and clear out enemies till either Liu Bei 
escapes, or Cao Cao shows up and you kill him.  You can get way over 
1000, I did.

Conquest of Nan Zhong – rush forward and take out the attack base.  Cut 
scene, and then go take out that defense base, take out Meng Huo.  Keep 
fighting down and you'll find a path behind a tree, there are four of 
these in this map.  You'll run into Meng Huo a couple of times, so just 
keep fighting him.  Take out all the officers on the way, and clear out 
defense base in the middle of the map, on the right, that will make a way 
for your bridge, but even if your on a horse, the poison affects you.  
Keep riding, when you get to the armored troops part, keep the task 
leaders alive, and kill Zhu Rong when she shows up.  Take out the attack 
base in the center of there, and keep riding (there is a hidden path in 
that giant area, near bottom right.) keep fighting, take out supply base, 
and just head into the enemy base.  Easy.

Battle of Tian Shui – Capture Nan An Castle by capturing Xiahou Mao, once 
that's complete, rush over to An Ding Castle, and kill Cui Liang to 
capture it.  When Jiang Wei starts to complain about Tian Shui (cut 
scene), just rush behind enemy lines to kick his ass.  Then rush over to 
An Ding Castle, kill the reinforcements, and wait for Ma Zun to come out 
of his castle, PREVENT HIM FROM GETTING TO THE ESCAPE POINT!!!  Stop him 
at any means necessary.  You win. 

Battle of Chen Cang – start off by rushing forwards and killing Fei Yao, 
Zhang Hu and Wang Shuang, and tons of units.  When the ambush in Huang 
Zhongs area comes, go and help, then rush to the mountain path to go in 
the side entrance of the castle, watch out for 3 ambushes.  Get inside 
the castle, and slay, kill and maim everyone there, help Huang Zhong when 
another Ambush comes, and just keep on truckin'. Watch out for the ambush 
on the bottom right, it can take out that attack base, crippling your 
siege weapon usage.  When everyone and everything has been taken care of, 
go after Sima Yi.

Battle of Wu Zhang Plains – As long as your decent with Zhuge Liang, his 
attack and defense are strong, and you can handle him, you can win this!  
Look at the defeat conditions "Zhuge Liang is defeated."  Oh, that's you! 
So, to start off, go forward and take out the two attack bases front and 
center. Take the gates on either side as well.  Keep attacking, and slay 
any officer that comes out of the gate. Now, I recommend a horse for this 
battle, as cause your going to need him for here, enter the base, and 
Deng Ai is going to show up, KILL HIM FAST, for if he's allowed to get 
just behind the center supply base, he will set up catapults, major 
problem for the Shu army's march, but if you kill him after its set up, 
it goes away (kill him before to avoid a lowering of morale, and an 
annoying cut scene) now, back out of the gate, and keep slaughtering till 
Zhuge says back off, let the arbalests go, then go in for the kill.  Bye 
Bye Sima Yi.

any enemies in way up into air.

then smacks right, then releases a couple energy bombs (like his charge 
attack) that explode extremely fast.

Musou: Levitates in air, slowly moving forward, and shooting out laser 
beams, finishes by shooting far back, and shooting large strong beams.

True Musou: Levitates in air, slowly moving forward, and shooting out 
laser beams, finishes by shooting back, creating the 8 character circle 
(From C2) that shoots one large strong beam.

3rd Weapon - White Feather - 10 power

4th Weapon - Peacock Feather - 32 power
(Charge 18, Fill 15, Bow 15, Defense 18, Musou 20)

How to get Fourth Weapon - Battle of Tian Shui - This one is a little bit 
of a challenge, but not too hard.  Start out by taking An Ding and the 
other fortress, (name escapes me right now), when that's done, rush over 
to 
Jiang Wei, and kill him when he starts to retreat, follow after him, 
don't cut through enemy territory to intercept.  When that's done, hurry 
up and get your valuable item in the first base you took, time is of the 
essence.  When that's all done chase down Ma Zun, and kill him.  Good 
job, you've won.

------------------------------
-Pang Tong 
------------------------------

- Classmate and friend of Zhuge Liang, Pang Tong was a genius as well.  
Also known, as the "Fledgling Phoenix" Pang Tong's genius was never truly 
recognized, due to his premature death in a storm of arrows, being 
mistaken as Liu Bei.

Musou: 

Battle of Chi Bi – The battle starts just after Pang Tong has linked 
Wei's ships together.  Go forward, taking down anyone in your path, of 
course, and take out the gate (go up two ships, left one, and down one) 
then go after the next (go up, right four ships and down one).  From 
there, its simple, save anyone in danger, seek out officers, and have 
fun.  I killed over 1000 units here, it's simple.

Battle of Cheng Du – Rush forward, into the forest, killing any and all 
ambushes that get in your way.  Take out all of the gates in the forest, 
and rush up to Zhang Ren, be wary of his ambush, that's what killed Pang 
Tong in real life.  Take out the arrows, and march downwards, into Cheng 
Du. Open up the upper gate, and if the other two haven't been opened, 
open them as well.  When the castle is surrounded, the inner gates shall 
open, destroy the gate inside, and defeat Liu Zhang.

Battle of Mount Ding Jun – go forward and attack the attack base (wow), 
and keep on going to the other attack base, killing Yue Jin on the way, 
and Zhang He just after the 2nd. Destroy the gate behind Zhang He's 
starting point.  Head over to the supply base, and open a can of whoop 
ass on Xiahou Shang, Xiahou De, and the base.  Head up, defeating all the 
officers, and when Cao Cao shows up, slay him as well.

The Conquest of Nan Zhong - start off by heading forward and defeating 
the defense base ahead of you.  When this is finished, head back up, past 
where you started, and go to the left, there is a hidden path there.  
Follow it through, taking the lower path and kill Ahui Nan and Dong Tu 
Ne; Meng Huo will get in the way. Head to the attack bases on the top, 
and defeat them.  When that's finished, keep fighting down, (kill Meng 
Huo a couple of times, including once in a hidden path, once when he 
raids Ma Su I think it is, once in the armor troop area, and once in the 
second largest area from the end) until the Armor Troops show up, when 
they appear, kill Wu Tugu before Zhuge Liang's task force is defeated, 
hit the pots to make them explode, don't worry they wont hurt you.  Zhu 
Rong will show up, all pissed off, so just kick her off, she'll run off 
with her little "I see you have some fire in you as well" speech.  Bitch.  
Keep charging into the enemy main base.  Easy to get over 1000 kills.

Battle of Bai Di Castle – This battle is different in Musou mode and free 
mode, in Musou you start off in the cave above the castle, in free you 
start off next to Liu Chan.  And way, head forward; kill Chen Wu and Zhou 
Fang, then Xu Sheng and Zhou Tai.  When the peasant militia shows up, 
save them.  Rush around, killing any enemy, saving any ally.  When Gan 
Ning shows up, KILL HIM, he is a major strain on castle defenses.  When 
you go near Sun Quan up top, he'll disappear, and reappear at the bottom 
of the map.  The enemies here can be overwhelming at times, and quite 
annoying, so make sure you're strong when you start.  Kill Sun Quan to 
end the map, and win the Musou.


Attacks:

Charge: Shoots a green energy ball.  An Excellent crowd clearer.

Jumping Charge: Jumps into the air, and onto his staff, and surfs along

and just playing with.  I know I did.

head and spinning around, creating a whirlwind.  Finishes with one final 
stronger one.

How to get fourth weapon – Conquest of Nan Zhong – start off by heading 
forward and defeating the defense base ahead of you.  When this is 
finished, head back up, past where you started, and go to the left, there 
is a hidden path there.  Follow it through, taking the lower path and 
kill Ahui Nan and Dong Tu Ne, and head to the attack base on the top 
right, Defeat it.  When that's finished, keep fighting down, (kill Meng 
Huo a couple of times) until the Armor Troops show up, when they appear, 
kill Wu Tugu before Zhuge Liang's task force is defeated.  When this is 
complete, the valuable item appears right below the secret path I told 
you about.  To finish, just fight your way, defeating Meng Huo various 
times, Zhu Rong and whatnot, and you'll do fine.

------------------------------
-Liu Bei 
------------------------------

- Virtuous leader of Shu, his sole mission was the happiness of his 
people.  Sworn brother of Zhang Fei and Guan Yu, he made an oath with 
them to unite china in the interest of the people.  Distant relative of 
the emperor, and was married to Sun Jian's Daughter, Sun Shang Xiang.

Musou:

The Yellow Turban Rebellion – You should have red hare by now.  Turn 
around, and head upwards, the path that Sun Jian is pointed towards. 
Charge up, past Sun Ce, Sun Jian, Huang Gai and Han Dang, and kill Yan 
Zheng, and even farther ahead, Zhang Man Cheng. Take the path to the 
left, and kill Zhang Bao, go down, and take out the attack base (if it 
already hasn't been.) you did all of this to avoid the rockslides that 
Zhang Bao summons.  Now, head upwards, and go straight across that path, 
to Huang Shao and Zhang Yan, and when they are dead, turn around and head 
for He Yi, who is probably in the bend that defers from the straight 
path. Now, if Zhang Liang hasn't been defeated by now, head south and 
kill him off, stopping the tornados.  Head back north, destroy the four 
torches in each of the four corners of the altar, then go after Zhang 
Jiao, (kill his Sub Officers, Zhang Bao and Guan Hai, as well).

Battle of Hu Lao Gate - Red Hare is a big help here. Charge forward, only 
killing a couple of that huge group there, and head up to Xu Rong, kill 
him and take the gate which he's by.  From there on, take the attack 
base, killing anyone in your way, and head to the supply base.  Head to 
Hu Lao Gate, killing Hu Zhen, when you see him.  Take out the gate that 
you pass when you first come into the opening, and clear out a ton of 
units, including officers: Guo Si, Zhao Cen, Li Jue, Wang Fang, Li Meng 
and Gao Shun when he come out.  DO NOT KILL THE GATE CAPTAIN BY HU LAO 
GATE! LET SOMEONE ELSE DO IT.  Go clear the gate on the other side of the 
clearing, where Li Jue is, which can give you quite a bit of kills.  When 
Lu Bu finally is unleashed, if you're feeling a little brave, charge him.  
Wait for the cut scene, and flee, go help Cao Cao defeat Li Ru, and let 
your brothers take care of Lu Bu for a while.  When you come back, he 
should have a sizable portion of his health taken out.  Help them take 
him on, till your close to death, then just don't risk it, take off.  Be 
warned, STAY AWAY FROM HIM WHEN HE GLOWS RED OR GOLD, HE WILL KILL YOU IF 
HE ATTACKS, EVEN FROM JUST ONE!!!! If you didn't kill him, head up 
through Zhang Liao, kill him, listen to the little conversation, and head 
for Dong Zhuo.  Watch it, he will call for help from Lu Bu, so eliminate 
him fast. 

Battle of Chang Ban – Start off, (On RED HARE, you SHOULD have him by 
now) by charging, and capturing every neutral base that you can. If you 
move fast enough, the enemy should only capture one base, don't worry 
about the one Zhuge Liang talks about, he'll capture that one easily. 
When that's done, head up the hard way, killing the defense base the 
enemy captured, and Cao Hong. Continue heading up, killing Li Dian as 
well, and move into the enemy camp.  Just stay there awhile, killing and 
maiming, you can get quite a boat load of KO's in this battle. Don't 
forget to meet up with Zhao Yun, and defeat the Supply base near the 
defense base Zhuge captured too. Defeat the reinforcements when they show 
up (Xu Huang and Cao Zhang), and finally, Cao Cao when he shows up.

Escape from Chi Bi – Charge after Cao Cao, that's as easy as I can put 
it.  Watch out for collapsing bridges, enemy reinforcements, and Xiahou 
Yuan (he tends to have been the biggest problem for me). Xun You and 
Cheng Yu are annoying too, so you might have to take them out as well.  
This battle easy, I finished rather quickly (a little over two and a half 
minutes).

Battle of Cheng Du – Rush into the forest, and kill any ambushes, should 
the get in your way.  Rush over to Zhang Ren (an ambush appears as you 
ride up), and kill him, to prevent Pang Tong's death (Hell, if you do it 
before he dies, you get a valuable item! [The Hex Mark Saddle]). Now, you 
may go back into the forest, and kill the rest of the ambushes that 
appear (Liu Hans, Leng Bao's and Zhang Yi's ambush), and clear the three 
gates within the forest.  Next, move to the eastern gate of Cheng Du 
castle, and slay everyone in the area outside of it, then move inside the 
castle, slaying everyone within.  By now, Zhang Fei and//or Zhao Yun 
should have reached and opened the southern gate, so wait for the inner 
castle gate to open, move in, kill the gate up top, then take care of Liu 
Zhang.

Battle of Yi Ling – Charge forward and take out the attack base ahead of 
you.  When that's taken care of, turn around, and look on your map, 
slightly to the right of that supply base, is a road that breaks at a 
river, then starts again at the other side, you'll notice it by looking 
across and seeing a bridge that's ready to fall down, leave your 
bodyguard there, it's a help (You WILL need Red Hare here later).  Now, 
head farther west, to where Ma Zhong (Ding Feng's sub-general) is, and go 
down, killing him and defeating the supply base below him. Now, move over 
to Han Dang, and kill him, then moving up to Ding Feng and the Supply 
Base.  When you cross the bridge to the right of the supply base, bridge 
layers will lay down that bridge where I told you to leave your 
bodyguard, rush over there and KILL Zhu Ran.  Do not let him set your 
camp on fire, do not let him collect 200$. Next on your list is Ling Tong 
and Gan Ning.  Now, move to the force in the east, that is attacking 
upwards toward Sun Quan.  You'll run into Sun Shiang Xiang, (Cut Scene) 
kill her, and keep moving up, towards the supply base, Lu Xun, and if the 
supply base to the west of the enemy main base hasn't been taken, take 
it.  Now, go to Sun Quan, and defeat him. If you feel like, you can also 
take out Zhang Cheng and Zhou Fang, at the bottom right (reinforcements).

Battle of Bai Di Castle – Head out of the castle, taking the eastern 
gate, and move down, past Huang Zhong and attack the gate ahead of him.  
Now move on to the enemy supply base (Defeating Zhu Huan and Quan Zong on 
the way) to the south.  Huang Gai should rush there, so kill him, and the 
gate at the very tip of the southeast corner.  Move on to the attack base 
to the left, behind Huang Gai's starting position.  Now, move on to Sun 
Shao, taking out the gate on the way.  Now, move up to Ma Chao, and help 
him save the Peasant Militia, kill Jiang Qin when you see him. When you 
meet up with Ma Chao, the militia will be saved.  Zhou Tai will now work 
his way down to you, so kill him as well. Now, take out the entire bottom 
left, gates, troops and all (I even left my Bodyguard down there). Now, 
kill Gan Ning, His reinforcements have arrived in the bottom right, where 
you killed Huang Gai, take him out and then move on to the upper left.  
Up there, take out the Supply bases and troops, and clearing out the 
sentinel base of any intruders. After Lu Xun, Chen Wu, and any other 
troops are killed, go after Sun Quan. You'll have noticed, Sun Quan isn't 
up top anymore; he's down where I instructed you to make your area! He's 
screwed now, because he has gates attack him, and your charging him too! 
Kill him and win.

Battle of Wu Zhang Plains – Go forward and defeat the attack base on the 
right side of the map, in the middle.  Next, move on to the attack base 
in the middle, on the left side of the map, Wang Lang and Xiahou Mao 
should be close to this one, so kill them. Next, defeat the Gate Captain 
to the left of the left attack base, and clear out any troops on the way.  
Open up a path for the Supply line, and kill Cao Rui, who is going to try 
to destroy it. Before Zhong Hui gets too far, kill him, and then go after 
Cao Xiu, who is trying to do the same that Cao Rui did. Now, charge past 
enemy lines, and kill Deng Ai, then kill Cao Ren.  Cut scene when Zhuge 
dies, then everyone gets pissed off and charges, so take out the three 
Supply bases that line the enemy base, and charge and kill each of the 
officers inside.  Defeating the last two supply bases inside as well.  
Finish off by killing Sima Yi. Side note: watch out for the rockslide 
(left side) and the ambush (right side) leading up to Sima Yi.

Jumping Charge: jumps and slashes twice, sending out airwaves, which

Weapons:

Starting Weapon – Long Sword – 3 power

2nd Weapon – Imperial Sword – 7 power

3rd Weapon – Gold Dragon – 11 power

4th Weapon – Gold Moon Dragon – 34 power
(Luck 20, Horse 15, Speed 18, Defense 18, Musou 15)

How to get 4th Weapon – Battle of Yi Ling – Start off by charging east 
(on the map) and going over to Cheng Pu.  Ignore him and head up, find 
and kill Sun Shiang Xiang (Cut scene). She will run, so catch and kill 
her. When that's done, rush back to base, and kill Ling Tong and Gan 
Ning, who have invaded by now, but watch out, they are next to each 
other, and more powerful then usual. Now, Lu Xun is moving towards your 
base, so rush past the rest of the officers, towards him, and slay him. 
The valuable item will appear just below the bridge on the right side of 
the map, below where you found Sun Shiang Xiang.  Now, just kill people, 
or go kill Sun Quan.  This mission was extremely easy, I got this after I 
only played Yellow Turban Rebellion and Hu Lao Gate.  Didn't even reach 
the mission in Musou.

True Musou:

------------------------------
-Yue Ying 
------------------------------

-Yue Ying, daughter of Huang Chen Yan.  Brilliant in martial arts and 
academics, known for her spectacular inventions, which marveled anyone 
who saw them.  She was said to be extremely unattractive, but Zhuge Liang 
saw beyond this ploy, which it was.  It was used to drive off anyone who 
wanted her for beauty, and not for anything else. Her father considered 
Zhuge Liang a wonderful match for her, and quickly set up the marriage.  
When Zhuge Liang joined, so did she, helping Zhuge Liang with her 
inventions, and strategies. She died soon after her husband's death at Wu 
Zhang Plains; her last words were to her son, "Be loyal, and filial."

Musou: 

1. Battle of Chang Ban - Extremely easy, as soon as you start, head for 
the unoccupied base ahead.  Take that over, head on through, and 
slaughter the enemy before you.  Go ahead, test out her deadly skills, 
they're fun!  Stay at the top of the map, go meet with Zhuge Liang once, 
swoop around that loop at the top left, and kill all reinforcements.  I 
got over 1000 kills here, well worth the strategy.
 
2. Conquest of Nan Zhong - another simple stage, just not as much kills.  
Watch walls for secret passages, there are hidden passages behind trees 
here, and they help a lot.  Kill off all troops and officers that get in 
your way, take down Zhu Rong when she appears, and just keep kicking Meng 
Huo's ass. 
He'll eventually give in.

3. Battle of Tian Shui - When you start, automatically head to the base 
ahead of you, and kill the officer inside.  All units in the base will 
flee, and head to the other base Zhuge told you to conquer.  When that's 
all done, take run through enemy territory to kill Jiang Wei, use a Musou 
rage, you'll have gotten one by now.  When finished, retreat to allied 
territory, heal up, and kill what's-his-name when he tries to flee.  Use 
a Musou rage that you'll probably find by then, he'll crumble at your 
feet.

4. Battle of Chen Cang - kill all officers and alot of troops in front of 
the castle defense wall.  When the ambush on the bottom left side is 
enacted, rush in and help, then take the mountain path on the right side 
of map, (watch out for ambush's) Kill off enemies there, help the 2nd 
ambush on bottom left, and then swoop in for the kill.  (I got 3475 kills 
here, Wow.)

5. Battle of Wu Zhang Plains – Got a little close for comfort here, but I 
did it.  First, start off by killing Guo Huai, and rushing into the 
center to take out the attack bases, killing Wang Lang, Xiahou Wei, Cao 
Rui and as many troops as you wish, on the way.  When that's done, rush 
down to help Zhuge Liang against Zhong Hui.  Go back up, and enter the 
supply base, preferably the middle on the gate, so you can quickly take 
out Deng Ai when he shows up.  After that, just help take out the rest of 
the bases, kill officers, listen to Zhuge whenever he talks, and you win.


Attacks:

Charge: Throws her spear, twirling it around about two feet in front of 
her.  Keep pressing triangle to continue the assault for a few seconds 
longer.

Jump Charge: Jumps up and swings any enemies in range, if it misses, she 
swings twice and falls, if she hits an enemy, she keeps swinging for 
about 5-6 swings.  Does significant damage.

Musou: Swings her spear around extremely fast, finishes off with an 
upwards slash. 

True Musou: Same as Musou, except stronger, and she finishes with an 
upward slash, that triggers a quite large whirlwind.

S: Single slash with spear.

S2: Single slash with spear, then slashes back.

S3: Single slash with spear, slashes back, and then slashes upwards.

S4: Single slash with spear, slashes back, slashes upwards, and then does 
somewhat of an uppercut of weapons.

S5: Single slash with spear, slashes back, slashes upwards, uppercuts 
with her spear, and then does uppercut opposite way.

S6: - Single slash with spear, slashes back, slashes upward, uppercuts 
with her spear, does uppercut opposite way, then slashes normally again, 
(Can go into Evolution attack, hitting the same way again, only charged.)

C1: Single slash, then turns, and hits enemy with the bottom of spear, 
nailing them into the air.

C2: Single slash with spear, slashes back, and then stabs at enemy, three 
times, doing multiple swirl hits each stab.

C3: Single slash with spear, slashes back, slashes upwards, and then does 
a 360 slash.

C4: Single slash with spear, slashes back, slashes upwards, does somewhat 
of an uppercut of weapons, then attacks up, creating whirlwind.

C5: Single slash with spear, slashes back, slashes upwards, uppercuts 
with her spear, does uppercut opposite way, then does multiple 360 
attacks, just like her Musou attack.

Weapons:

Starting Weapon - War Spear - 3 power

2nd Weapon - Martial Spear - 7 power

3rd Weapon - Horizon - 11 power

4th Weapon - Oblivion - 36 power
(Charge 15, Mounted 15, Bow 16, Defense 17, Life 16)


How to Get 4th weapon - Battle of Wu Zhang Plains - I had problems here, 
died a few times, but I did it!  What you need to do is rush your way to 
the middle, killing all officers on the way.  When that's done, rush down 
to help Zhuge Liang from Zhong Hui, then rush all the way back up to kill 
Deng Ai.  MAKE SURE YOU KILL HIM BEFORE HE SETS UP THE CATAPULTS!!  Then 
just go along like normal, killing everything in your way, saving 
generals, and keeping Zhuge alive.  For help, refer to my Musou Mode 
walkthrough of this battle.
(P.S. if you keep dying here, like I did, go to another battle, like Hu 
Lao Gate [Dong Zhuo's Forces] and kill a lot of people, just make sure 
you have the Serpent Earrings equipped)

jealousy.

Musou:

Battle of Si Shui Gate – rush to the center, and take out the attack 
base, and all the little officers that are invading from there.  Head 
over to Yuan Shu's location, and take him, and Ji Ling out as well, along 
with the defense base and the gate next door.  There is a Musou wine in 
the jar next to the gate.  Head down, eliminating the defense base below 
Yuan Shu's starting location, and the gate below that. If Gongsun Zan 
hasn't already moved to the middle, eliminate him too. When Cao Cao's 
ambush appears below Si Shui gate, move in and save Hua Xiong, by killing 
that usurping bastard.  Go after Sun Jian, Liu Bei and finally kill Yuan 
Shao.

Battle of Hu Lao Gate – Ooh boy, is this one fun ^^.  You start off right 
outside of Hu Lao Gate.  All the advice that I can give you for this one 
is to kill.  You can get well over 1000 KO's here, and its fun too!  On 
thing here though, is that Liu Bei, Guan Yu and Zhang Fei gang up on you 
here, which triggers a cut scene.  Oh yeah, Wen Chou and Yan Liang show 
up as reinforcements.

Battle of Chang Shan – You've joined Yuan Shao!  Head forward, killing 
Zuozi Zhangba, and all the troops you feel like, there is a Musou wine 
ahead of you in a jar.  Head upwards, and an ambush will appear, some 
talking and whatnot.  Head forward, destroy attack base, and kill Zhang 
Yan to end the ambush, gain Yuan Shao's trust back, and to get some 
reinforcements.  Head forward on that path, and open the doors, go past 
Liu Bei, kill Guan Yu and Zhang Fei, and then head for Liu Bei.  Kill 
Zhao Yun as well, he's quite annoying. Fight all the little peons that 
think they can take you, and then head up to Gongsun Zan.  If you killed 
Liu Bei, Zhang Fei and Guan Yu fast enough, the Red Hare Harness will 
appear.

Battle of Xia Pi – Oh god, is this pretty damn annoying, but since you're 
the enemy commander here, you don't loose unless you die.  Go forward, 
killing Zhang Fei, Guan Yu, Liu Bei, Xiahou Yuan and Xiahou Dun (and all 
the little supply base on the way).  Not necessarily in that order, but 
if you follow a path, that's who you run into first.  That will save all 
of your troops, and Cao Cao will have shown up by now.  Rush over; kill 
him and all his dumb little troops that he has the audacity to call 
'reinforcements', and you win. Also, if you last out long enough, Yuan 
Shu will come to assist you, but watch out, if you're losing horribly, 
he'll leave quickly.  In order to allow them to come, take the two gates 
in the southeast.

lunges forward slashing.

How to Get 4th weapon - Battle of Chang Shan [Chang mountain] - this one 
is easy, just kill 1000 troops.  Rush beyond Zhang Yan, to the gate, 
taking out the attack base on the way.  Be careful to stay away from the 
gate captain, and just kill all enemies that come at you.  The archers 
can get quite annoying, so destroy them, try to have it come crashing 
down on the enemies, that's a major help.  When the weapon finally does 
appear, it is right inside the courtyard, to the right of the gate that 
leads to Gongsun Zan.

-Diao Chan 
------------------------------

- Adopted daughter of Wang Yun, she helped him with a plot to overthrow 
the tyrant.  She infiltrated her way into his army's ranks, and convinced 
Lu Bu to murder him.  When it was over with, she ran off with Lu Bu.

Musou:

Battle of Si Shui Gate – rush to the center, and take out the attack 
base, and all the little officers that are invading from there.  Head 
over to Yuan Shu's location, and take him, and Ji Ling out as well, along 
with the defense base and the gate next door.  There is a Musou wine in 
the jar next to the gate.  Head down, eliminating the defense base below 
Yuan Shu's starting location, and the gate below that. If Gongsun Zan 
hasn't already moved to the middle, eliminate him too. When Cao Cao's 
ambush appears below Si Shui gate, move in and save Hua Xiong, by killing 
that commandeering bastard.  Go after Sun Jian, Liu Bei and finally kill 
Yuan Shao.

Battle of Hu Lao Gate – This one is EXTREMELY simple, and very fun.  You 
start off right outside of Hu Lao Gate; there is some bickering between 
Lu Bu and Dong Zhuo.  Kill, that's the easiest advice for here. When 
enemies start taking the indirect route, you can go up and help Zhang 
Liao, kill off a lot of troops, its fun! You can get well over 1000 KO's 
here, and its fun too! Fight downwards, kill off Liu Bei, Cao Cao, Sun 
Jian, Gongsun Zan, the reinforcements Yan Liang and Wen Chou, and finally 
kill Yuan Shao.

Battle of Chang Shan – Guess what? You have joined Yuan Shao!  Head 
forward, killing Zuozi Zhangba, and all the troops you feel like, there 
is a Musou wine ahead of you in a jar.  Head upwards, and an ambush will 
appear, there is some talking and whatnot, between Lu Bu and Yuan Shao.  
Head forward, destroy attack base, and kill Zhang Yan to end the ambush, 
gain Yuan Shao's trust back, save Lu Bu, and to get some reinforcements.  
Head forward on that path, and open the doors, go past Liu Bei, kill Guan 
Yu and Zhang Fei, and then head for Liu Bei.  Kill Zhao Yun as well, he's 
quite annoying. Fight all the little peons that think they can take you, 
and then head up to Gongsun Zan.  If you killed Liu Bei, Zhang Fei and 
Guan Yu fast enough, the Red Hare Harness will appear.

Battle of Xia Pi – This is annoying, and even harder for Diao Chan, 
seeing as she has to protect Lu Bu as well. Well, Go forward, killing 
Zhang Fei, Guan Yu, Liu Bei, Xiahou Yuan and Xiahou Dun (and all the 
little supply base on the way).  Not necessarily in that order, but if 
you follow a path, that's who you run into first.  That will save all of 
your troops, and Cao Cao will have shown up by now.  Go help the rest of 
the troops on the map, killing soldiers and whatnot, go kill Cao Hong, 
and save Lu Bu. Then, go over; kill him and all his dumb little troops 
that he has the audacity to call  'reinforcements', and you win. Also, if 
you last out long enough, Yuan Shu will come to assist you, but watch 
out, if you're losing horribly, he'll leave quickly.  In order to allow 
them to come, take the two gates in the southeast.

Weapons:

3rd Weapon – Enchantress – 10 power

4th Weapon – Diva – 32 power

advantages.

How To Get 4th Weapon – Battle of Xia Pi – Go forward, and kill Zhang 
Fei. When he is dead, go around the castle's top path, and kill the sub 
generals, Li Dian and Yu Jin. After that, go after Xiahou Dun, Xiahou 
Yuan, Liu Bei then Guan Yu. Not necessarily in that order, but if you do 
it right, that's who you run into first (Unless Xiahou Dun's unit moves, 
then he's last). Do all this before Cao Cao and make sure that all of 
your allies survive, and you will get the weapon. When this is done, the 
valuable item will appear just above the supply base in the southwest.  
Just head in (you should have gotten a Musou rage by now) and kill Cao 
Cao. Congratulations.

------------------------------
-Dong Zhuo 
------------------------------

- Evil, extremely selfish and ambitious.  Tried usurping over the 
Imperial court, until Yuan Shao led a coalition to overthrow him.  Died 
at the hands of his adopted son, Lu Bu.

Musou:

Battle of Xi Liang – Head forward; eliminate the attack base, and Deng 
Mao.  When that's finished, go up the hill (dodging the tumbling rocks, 
they can be destroyed, but it takes precision timing). Cheng Yuanzhi is 
up there, acting all cocky, so just kill him and end his annoying 
cackling, and his rockslide.  Take out the gate up there and head towards 
the next defense base, and kill Zhang Liang, ending his sorcery, and 
opening up the central bridge. Next, go after the supply base, ignoring 
the phantom troops (which I have to say, they did a much better job on in 
this game), the death of Zhang Bao will deal with that.  Ma Chao and Pang 
De will show up as reinforcements by now, so... yeah.  Go after Zhang 
Bao, and eliminate him and the phantom troops all in one shot. Now, just 
head forward and wipe out Zhang Jiao.

Battle of Liang Province – Start off by destroying the base in the top 
right corner, kill Ma Chao on the way.  Then go for the attack base to 
the right of the enemy main camp, the attack base below that, the defense 
base to the left of that and the defense base below that.  By the time 
your done with the first two bases, your base at the bottom will need 
help, kill Yang Qiu, and defeat the attack base on your way. When this is 
done, resume your march on the other 2 bases.  Now @&#^ Pang De up!  He 
has his army around him, so watch out.  From now on, just charge through 
enemy forces, killing any left over officers, and go after Ma Teng.

Battle of Si Shui Gate – rush to the center, and take out the attack 
base, and all the little officers that are invading from there.  Head 
over to Yuan Shu's location, and take him, and Ji Ling out as well, along 
with the defense base and the gate next door.  There is a Musou wine in 
the jar next to the gate.  Head down, eliminating the defense base below 
Yuan Shu's starting location, and the gate below that. If Gongsun Zan 
hasn't already moved to the middle, eliminate him too. When Cao Cao's 
ambush appears below Si Shui gate, move in and save Hua Xiong, by killing 
that commandeering bastard.  Go after Sun Jian, Liu Bei and finally kill 
Yuan Shao.

Battle of Hu Lao Gate – start off by eliminating all enemies and officers 
before the Hu Lao Gate.  Charge the gate between the indirect route, to 
eliminate all the little bastards that the thing spews forth. Now, take 
down the attack base on the left bottom of the map, and go after the 
defense to its right next, by now, Lu Bu and Diao Chan should have 
defected. Bastard, kill the backstabbers, and finish the battle by 
killing the rest of the infidels that dare attack your dream of paradise, 
(they would be Sun Jian, Liu Bei, Gongsun Zan and Yuan Shao.)

How to get 4th weapon: (Battle of Liang Province) Start off by destroying 
the base in the top right corner, ignore Ma Chao.  Then go for the attack 
base to the right of the enemy main camp, the attack base below that, the 
defense base to the left of that and the defense base below that.  By the 
time your done with the first two bases, your base at the bottom will 
need help, kill Yang Qiu, and defeat the attack base on your way. When 
this is done, resume your march on the other 2 bases.  When this is done, 
go after Ma Chao, and screw him up, he should be surrounded by allies, so 
he wont be hard.  Now &@#^ Pang De up!  He has his army around him, so 
watch out.  The valuable item appears in the lower left quadrant of the 
cross roads on the left side of the map.  When this is done, just charge 
Ma Teng.

------------------------------
-Meng Huo 
------------------------------

- King of the Nanman to the south.  A large man, he defended the south 
against the campaign of Zhuge Liang many times.  But when he finally did 
lose, he realized Zhuge was not trying to take his land, but trying to 
ally with the south, he agreed.

Musou:

Struggle for Nan Zhong – start off by going forth, and attacking enemies 
trying to head into your base. Then head forward, attacking Dong Tu Na 
and the supply base.  When they're taken care of, take over Ahui Nan, and 
take out the charging King Mulu.  Now, move over to the attack base up 
north, and Jinhuan Sanjie's unit, taking them both down, now attack the 
charging Wu Tugu.  When the south has finally united, Yong Kai, Gao Ding 
and Zhu Bao will come, kill them off to successfully defend your 
territory! First head to Zhu Bao, as he's closest to your base, and 
presents a huge threat.  Next, Yong Kai, because Zhu Rong should be 
taking him head on by now, then Gao Ding.

Battle of Nan Zhong – Start off by rushing north, and taking the attack 
base, ignore Zhang Jiao and Pei Yuan Shao, on the way there, but take him 
out on the way back.  Now, take the neutral (if it already hasn't been) 
base in the bottom middle. Now, go save your base, by attacking the 
'converted' (bastards defected) soldiers.  Now, when more get converted, 
and respect drops, you just can't take that, so head north, and slay 
Zhang Bao, then head to the southeast, and slay Zhang Liang. Head through 
the enemy camp, and kill Bo Zhang on the way.  Kill Zhang Man Cheng and 
He Yi on the way as well.  Now, head back through the allied main camp, 
and take out Guan Hai. All you have to do now, is take out Zhang Jiao, 
and you win.

The Invasion of Nan Zhong – Start off by taking over the gate right ahead 
of you.  Now, take over the attack base ahead of you, and rose to the aid 
of Zhu Rong's troops in the center battlefield, taking over the attack 
base, killing Lu Xun, Zhou Tai, Xu Sheng and Zhu Ran.  When they are all 
dead, the bridge shall be destroyed, now rush in from the left side of 
the map, and take over the enemy camp.  Start off by killing Ding Feng, 
going up to Pan Zhang, and then taking out their leader, Sun Shiang 
Xiang. The beast unit shall take out the walls up top, so take out the 
defense base, the supply base, then Lu Meng, and finally Sun Quan. If you 
wish, you may also take out the reinforcements, which are made up of Gan 
Ning and Jiang Qin.

Conquest of Nan Zhong – March forward, and take the attack base, and the 
gate on the way.  Now, Wei Yan will charge you, so take care of him and 
Ma Dai, while protecting your main camp.  Now, head to the attack base 
the next section up, and take that over, and kill the task leaders (4), 
Zhang Yi and Wang Ping.  Keep moving, take out Huang Zhong and Yan Yan, 
and the attack base next to them, by the time you reach there, Guan Suo 
may also be there.  Now, head up to the designated gate, and defeat it, 
allowing reinforcements. Head up top, and as soon as the "enemy 
reinforcements" log shows up, take out that gate!! Ignore everything 
except that gate; you can take out the enemies on the way back. Now, go 
take the attack base to the right, Yue Ying, Liao Hua, Zhang Bao and Guan 
Xing in the center, and the supply base to the right.  When that's done, 
chase down Zhuge Liang, and you've won.

3rd Weapon – Beast Master – 12 power

4th Weapon – King of Beasts
(Charge 15, Fill 15, Horse 15, Attack 18, Life 19)

How to get fourth Weapon – Conquest of Nan Zhong – I suggest Red Hare 
here. Head forth; ignore everything, except for Wei Yan. Kill him, then 
head up, slaying anything on your way, over to Huang Zhong. Use the 
hidden path to get up to him.  Kill him, and then when the task force 
appears, kill all four of them.  Then head up to Yue Ying, killing the 
designated gate on the way, to allow reinforcements (you can most likely 
ignore this, and Zhu Rong will take care of it). If you need a full heal, 
kill a supply base, preferably the one in the area with the exploding 
pots. Now, head up north, using the secret path, and kill Yue Ying 
fast,(this isn't required, but hurry up and kill the gate on the top 
left, to prevent reinforcements).  Now, (assuming no one defected) the 
valuable item will appear in the bottom most secret path. Run down, grab 
it, then head back up, and finish off the rest of the soldiers, attack 
bases and Zhuge Liang.

Musou:

Battle of Xi Liang – Begins with a cut scene. Ok, charge ahead, and kill 
off Dong Min, Niu Fu and Hu Zhen, taking over the neutral attack base on 
the way.  Now, Zhang Liang has been isolated, and is in trouble! Oh no! 
Ok, so now we rush over there, kick Xu Rong and Li Ru's ass, along with 
the defense base, and as your doing that, Zhang Liang will be hauling ass 
back to the attack base you conquered.  A giant rolling log will now be 
in effect, helping you tremendously. Now, Ma Chao will appear, and way to 
close to your main base.  Go kill him and his pesky little troops, and do 
not let him kill Zhang Liang! When that area is certified Ma Chao free, 
head for Hua Xiong, and slay that bastard, along with clearing out that 
entire northwestern area. Now, take the eastern most path down (that path 
that DOESN'T have the giant log rolling back and forth) and kill Li Jue, 
the supply base and finally, kill off Dong Zhuo.

Battle of Ji Province – Wow, now Yuan Shao is starting with you.  
Anyways, just one more arrogant idiot to take down.  Start off by heading 
left, and clearing out the area of that altar, but watch out, those 
infidels have put a defense unit there, so kill the defense captain and 
capture the altar.  Head further left, and defeat Yuan Shang and the 
attack base in the northwest. Now, go back right (defeating Tian Feng, 
and anyone else by the altar on the way, so that Zhang Bao may perform 
another ceremony), all the way to where you started, and head down, and 
take out Yuan Xi, the defense base, and Ju Shou. When at the bottom, head 
left (when you get all the way left, near Yuan Shao, Zhao Yun's 
reinforcement unit shall appear), and you now have two choice, head 
north, and defeat the defense and supply base, along with Wen Chou and 
Gou Tu then go after Yuan Shao, or just plain kill Yuan Shao.

Battle of Nan Zhong – Ok, head out into the swamp, and kill Ahui Nan and 
King Duosi, there is an island close to where they are, so fight them on 
there, at least the poison will no longer hurt you.  Watch out for the 
poisonous marsh, that deals a major blow to your health, but that will 
all be dealt with soon enough. Now, head to the southeast, and take out 
King Mulu and his sub general, Dong Tu Na. When that area has been 
"converted," head back up north, and save Zhang Bao from Zhu Rong (and 
Jinhuan Sanjie, who's probably appeared down there).  Now, head to the 
northwest, and kill that pesky Wu Tugu. A phantom army shall appear to 
help you with the armor troops.  When that area has been cleared, head 
south, and the converted Nanman, plus the rest of the officers shall help 
you take the main base.  Kill off Dailai Dongzhu, Meng You, and finally 
kill Meng Huo. 

The Yellow Turban Rebellion – Start off, by heading forward, and killing 
Gongsun Yue.  Now that the rockslide has been initiated, charge down to 
Zhang Bao's altar (killing Gongsun Zan and Zhu Jun on the way), and help 
him brainwash Cao Cao, don't kill any sub generals, if possible, cause 
once Cao Cao is yours, they are too.  Next, go over to Zhang Liang's 
Altar, and help him brainwash Sun Jian, same thing here, kill no sub 
generals.  Now, head back north, and kill Huangfu Song, who is right 
outside your castle. Head west, and kill off Guan Yu, Jian Yong and Liu 
Bei, then go south and take out the defense base and gate.  Head to He 
Jin, and kill him, and once he's dead, head up to Dong Zhuo, and once 
he's taken care of, you win.

Attacks:

Charge: Raises his hands in the air, and the people around him are hit 
and fall to the ground.  This attack doesn't do a lot of damage, its only 
good for quick escapes, or stopping an officers Musou attack.

Jumping Charge: jumps and throws his staff, and him and his staff spin, 
as the staff spews fire.

S: Performs a 360-spin attack with staff.

S2: Performs a 360-spin attack with staff, then attacks with butt of 
staff through his arms.

S3: Performs a 360-spin attack with staff, attacks with butt of staff 
through his arms, and then turns around and attacks in an uppercut 
motion.

S4: Performs a 360-spin attack with staff, attacks with butt of staff 
through his arms, turns around and attacks in an uppercut motion, then 
smacks down the staff.

S5: Performs a 360-spin attack with staff, attacks with butt of staff 
through his arms, turns around and attacks in an uppercut motion, smacks 
down the staff, and then smacks down in the same motion again.

S6: Performs a 360-spin attack with staff, attacks with butt of staff 
through his arms, turns around and attacks in an uppercut motion, smacks 
down the staff, and then smacks down in the same motion again, and then 
swings it diagonally, from upper left to bottom right.
(Evolution attack now triggered, if acquired.)

C1: Performs a 360-spin attack with staff, knocking the enemy into the 
air behind him, then he turns around and hits the enemy with his staff.

C2: Performs a 360-spin attack with staff, attacks with butt of staff 
through his arms, and then walks forward, while commanding the staff to 
attack upward and downward, finishes by emitting a blue wave.  Keep 
pressing triangle to make attack longer. This is probably the best crowd 
clearing attack he has, when you can get it to work without enemies 
attacking you.

C3: Performs a 360-spin attack with staff, attacks with butt of staff 
through his arms, turns around and attacks in an uppercut motion, then 
stands still and shoots fire from the end of his staff.  

C4: Performs a 360-spin attack with staff, attacks with butt of staff 
through his arms, turns around and attacks in an uppercut motion, smacks 
down the staff, and then raises his staff into the air, creating four 
diamonds with calligraphy appear in front of him, attacking enemies.

C5: Performs a 360-spin attack with staff, attacks with butt of staff 
through his arms, turns around and attacks in an uppercut motion, smacks 
down the staff, and then smacks down in the same motion again, and then 
spins his arm around his body a few times, spraying fire.

Musou: Jabs staff forwards shooting fire continuously, finishes by waving 
the staff ahead of him and spraying fire.

True Musou: Jabs staff forwards shooting fire continuously, finishes by 
spins his arm around his body a few times, and spraying fire.

Weapons:

Starting Weapon – Magic Staff – 2 power

2nd Weapon – Mystic Staff – 6 power

3rd Weapon – Fire Staff – 10 power

4th Weapon – Volcano Staff – 32 power
(Charge 16, Fill 9, Luck 15, Attack 15, Musou 17)

How to get fourth Weapon – The Yellow Turban Rebellion – This one is 
hard, because Zhang Jiao Sucks. Ok, basically, Kill Gongsun Yue quickly, 
(he is in northwestern corner, Gongsun Zan's sub-general), and allow the 
rockslide to occur, there will be no cut scene, just a message in battle. 
Now, head to Zhang Bao and Zhang Liang's altars, and stay at the altars, 
waiting for the prayer to be finished, and cut scenes to occur. When Both 
Sun Jian and Cao Cao have been brainwashed, the valuable item will appear 
right below Zhang Bao's altar.  If any of your allies have been defeated, 
the item will not show up.  Now, just charge He Jin, kill him, and you 
win, but watch out for Dong Zhuo's reinforcements, he's royally pissed 
off. Since he showed up, now you have to kick his fat, arrogant, and 
annoying ass.

------------------------------
-Zuo Ci 
------------------------------

- He was a virtuous man, who believed Cao Cao would save the land, but 
ended up provoking him too much, and was finally captured, and executed.  
But when he escaped the execution, he foretold of Cao Cao's death, and 
disappeared. He then turned to Liu Bei, and helped Shu, until Liu Bei 
fell ill and died. Zuo Ci finally turned to Zhuge Liang, and when he 
died, supposedly Zuo Ci turned into a dove and flew away. Some say he 
still exists even today, waiting for a noble and virtuous person to come 
and save the land.

Now, I have to say, Zuo Ci rekindled my interest in this game.  After Liu 
Bei, Sun Jian and Cao Cao's long ass 8 leveled Musou missions, I started 
to get a little tired of everything, but I have to say, ZUO CI KICKS 
ASS!!!!  Oh my god he pwns everything and everyone.  He is DEFINITELY 
worth unlocking.  It's also nice to see someone else without the extreme 
drama, and goofy @#$*ing lines.

Musou:

The Yellow Turban Rebellion - You should damn well have red hare by now.  
Turn around, and head upwards, the path that Sun Jian is pointed towards. 
Charge up, past Sun Ce, Sun Jian, Huang Gai and Han Dang, and kill Yan 
Zheng, and even farther ahead, Zhang Man Cheng. Take the path to the 
right, over to Zhang Liang and kill him (do this to avoid the tornado's). 
Now, if the supply base between Zhang Liang and your starting postion 
hasn't been captured yet, take that out, them move up, towards the 
castle.  From here out, kill every general and base and troop outside the 
castle, there is prime chance to get a lot of kills here, go over to the 
gate on the outside of the castle, to the left of it, and kill all the 
troops over there, that's a great kill zone.  Once you move inside the 
castle, on top of the altar there are four weird looking torches, with 
energy emanating from them. Destroy them all and that will stop the 
phantom troops.  Now, seek and kill Zhang Jiao, (taking out the gates and 
troops inside, as well).

The Battle of Hu Lao Gate – Wow, this is easy.  Ok charge ahead, leave 
the attack//defense base ahead of you alone, just get in front of the Hu 
Lao Gate.  Stay there, as the rest of the units press forward, fighting 
enemies, and slaying mass quantities.  You should have the 4th weapon by 
now (if you read my guide on how to do that) so if Lu Bu shows up, you 
know how to handle him.  Just kill everyone, close all gates, kill all 
troops on the battlefield and whatnot, and have fun.  Kill Dong Zhuo to 
end the battle. 

Battle of Guan Du – Go forward, and kill all enemies ahead of you.  
You'll eventually run into Han Hao and Cao Hong, and finally head into 
the castle there. Hurry off to the left, and kill Guan Yu (a cut scene 
occurs, but kill him anyway, it's good points) in a hurry. Now, head into 
the castle, and kill off all the troops in the castle, including Xun You 
and Liu Yan.  Now, you may defeat the two bases in the center, head on to 
the far left, or just move to Guan Du Castle, just have fun kicking ass, 
and rack up some KO's.

Battle of Chang Ban – Begins with a cut scene. Start off, (On RED HARE, 
you SHOULD have him by now) by charging, and capturing every neutral base 
that you can. If you move fast enough, the enemy should only capture one 
base, don't worry about the one Zhuge Liang talks about; he'll capture 
that one easily. When that's done, head up the hard way, killing the 
defense base the enemy captured, and Cao Hong. Continue heading up, 
killing Li Dian as well, and move into the enemy camp.  Just stay there 
awhile, killing and maiming, you can get quite a boatload of KO's in this 
battle. Don't forget to meet up with Zhao Yun, and defeat the Supply base 
near the defense base Zhuge captured too. Defeat the reinforcements when 
they show up (Xu Huang and Cao Zhang), and finally, Cao Cao when he shows 
up.

Escape from Chi Bi – Begins with a cut scene. It's really quite simple 
here, just hunt Cao Cao down, this really isn't a battle to rack up 
K.O's. Watch out for his sub generals, they are a pain in the ass, and a 
collapsing bridge.  Also beware of enemy reinforcements. I kicked this 
mission's ass in a matter of 2'03''40.  I also got 130 kills.

Battle of He Fei - Start off by rushing the defense base in the center of 
the map (straight ahead of you).  Man Chong should be inside the base, so 
take him out as well.  When you're done, head outside the base and take 
care of Niu Jin and Pang De (Niu Jin first, cause he'll run when Pang De 
is defeated).  While fighting them, Cao Zhang should show up with 
reinforcements, so feel free to take him out as well.  Now, take out the 
gates that are right below the defense base. Zhang Liao's ambush should 
have shown up by now, so rush over there and take him out, and save Sun 
Quan from the arrogant bastard. Next, head for the supply base above the 
defense base you defeated, then go for the next defense base to the left 
of the defeated defense base you conquered, the one right above where Xu 
Huang's ambush. Now, go south, and take out the supply base, Xu Huang and 
Yue Jin, along with the gate and soldiers, of course.  By now, Xiahou Dun 
and Cao Hong's reinforcement units have shown up, along with the annoying 
Zhang Liao, take them out, along with Li Dian and Yu Jin who up there as 
well, and don't forget the defense base and two supply bases up top, 
along with taking out the supply base below He Fei Castle on the way.  
Head back to the southwest, and defeat Zhang Liao who appeared once more 
to the bottom, and head to the top.  Take Zhang Liao out one last time, 
and defeat Cao Cao.

Battle of Yi Ling – Begins with a cut scene. Charge forward and take out 
the attack base ahead of you.  When that's taken care of, turn around, 
and look on your map, slightly to the right of that supply base, is a 
road that breaks at a river, then starts again at the other side, you'll 
notice it by looking across and seeing a bridge that's ready to fall 
down, leave your bodyguard there, it's a help (You WILL need Red Hare 
here later).  Now, head farther west, to where Ma Zhong (Ding Feng's sub-
general) is, and go down, killing him and defeating the supply base below 
him. Now, move over to Han Dang, and kill him, then moving up to Ding 
Feng and the Supply Base.  When you cross the bridge to the right of the 
supply base, bridge layers will lay down that bridge where I told you to 
leave your bodyguard, rush over there and KILL Zhu Ran.  Do not let him 
set your camp on fire, do not let him collect 200$. Next on your list is 
Ling Tong and Gan Ning.  Now, move to the force in the east, that is 
attacking upwards toward Sun Quan.  Head to the supply base, killing Sun 
Shiang Xiang on the way, and keep moving up, towards Lu Xun, and if the 
supply base to the west of the enemy main base hasn't been taken, take 
it.  Now, go to Sun Quan, and defeat him. If you feel like, you can also 
take out Zhang Cheng and Zhou Fang, at the bottom right (reinforcements).

Battle of Wu Zhang Plains – Begins with a cut scene. Go forward and 
defeat the attack base on the right side of the map, in the middle.  
Next, move on to the attack base in the middle, on the left side of the 
map, Wang Lang and Xiahou Mao should be close to this one, so kill them. 
Next, defeat the Gate Captain to the left of the left attack base, and 
clear out any troops on the way.  Open up a path for the Supply line, and 
kill Cao Rui, who is going to try to destroy it. Before Zhong Hui gets 
too far, kill him, and then go after Cao Xiu, who is trying to do the 
same that Cao Rui did. Now, charge past enemy lines, and kill Deng Ai, 
then kill Cao Ren.  Cut scene when Zhuge dies, then everyone gets pissed 
off and charges, so take out the three Supply bases that line the enemy 
base, and charge and kill each of the officers inside.  Defeating the 
last two supply bases inside as well.  Finish off by killing Sima Yi. 
Side note: watch out for the rockslide (left side) and the ambush (right 
side) leading up to Sima Yi.

C3: Swipes cards to the right, then stabs multiple cards forward at the

C4: Swipes cards to the right, then stabs multiple cards forward at the 
same time, then swipes cards diagonally from lower left to upper right, 
then swipes cards to the left, and then sends a black vortex with cards

get to, this almost always does a 1 HIT KO, the move just screams "ABUSE 
ME!"

C5: Swipes cards to the right, then stabs multiple cards forward at the 
same time, then swipes cards diagonally from lower left to upper right, 
then swipes cards to the left, then swings the cards to the right, and

unbelievably powerful, he can easily complete this, and I absolutely fell 
in love with his move set.  Any ways, this is easy, rush to the Hu Lao 
Gate, open the gate, and kill Lu Bu. Simple as that, just watch out for 
Lu Bu when he turns yellow, save when you get him pretty low, and abuse 
your C3, C2 techniques and your Musou.  The Valuable item appears on top 
of the wall, just take the stairs to the left as you enter the Hu Lao 
Gate. Now then, just kill Dong Zhuo, and the battle ends.

Rare Items and Orbs - The Finest Jewelry in All the Land
__________________________________________________________________

All of the items I acquired, I obtained in Free Mode, on Easy Difficulty, 
and I found that jacked up warriors with Spears on Horses (preferably Red 
Hare) worked best.  So, my system here is [Name of the item – Battle 
Name//Force - Warrior I used – strategy] and below it, I put its 
description, and what it does.  None of the items require a certain 
person to obtain it, so with that:

__________
|Saddles |
----------

Red Hare – Battle of Chang Shan (Yuan Shao's Forces) – Zhao Yun – Start 
off by fighting your way through the gate to the north, fight all the 
officers in your way, and fight over to the front gate of the castle.  If 
you wish, you may save Lu Bu; he is quite helpful in the battle. Anyways, 
kill all officers in the front gate until you reach Guan Yu (Mainly Zhao 
Yun, he's a pain while your trying to fulfill the requirement), when you 
meet with him, turn around, and run to the Right Gate of the castle, rush 
in, bring Zhang Fei's health down as low as possible, then lure his as 
far towards Guan Yu as you can, then slay him, slay Guan Yu, then slay 
Liu Bei.  If you kill all three of the brothers within 3 minutes, the 
valuable item will show up on the left path, leading to the castle, right 
outside of the gate.  Kill Gongsun Zan to finish the battle.
Description: Begin Stage mounted on Red Hare
Effects: Red Hare is insanely fast, the fastest means of transportation 
in the game.

Storm Harness – Battle of Guan Du (Cao Cao's forces) – Ma Chao – You 
start the battle off in the castle on the right side of the map, so 
charge ahead, and kill Yan Liang as fast as you possibly can.  As soon as 
he's dead, run left, and slay Wen Chou.  Kill them all within 5 minutes 
of the stages beginning, and the valuable item will appear in the path to 
the right of Yuan Shao's main camp.  Grab it, and slay Yuan Shao, 
congrats you have Storm Runner.
Description: Begin Stage mounted on Storm Runner
Effects: Gives a bonus on the points earned during stage

Hex Mark Harness – Battle of Cheng Du (Shu Forces) – Lu Bu – Ok, you 
start near Pang Tong, as soon as you start, rush forward into the forest.  
Head up to the northwest, and kill Zhang Ren, if you kill him before he 
can kill Pang Tong, the Valuable Item will appear in the middle of the 
forest.  When that's done, just head to the castle that Liu Zhang is 
holed up in, open all the doors, and keep killing until the doors open.  
When they do, kill him and it's all over.
Description: Begin stage mounted on Hex Mark
Effects: Raises your luck

Shadow Harness - Battle of Liang Province (Allied Forces) – Lu Bu - This 
one is hard, due to its time requirements.  Now, to do this, you MUST 
have red hare, and an insanely strong officer, hence Lu Bu. As soon as 
the battle starts, rush to the southwest corner supply base, and clear it 
out, rush to the southeast gate, close it, then the eastern gate, then at 
the northeast gate, do the same, then STAY AT THE NORTHEAST BASE (have 
some patience, this WILL take awhile.)  After Dong Zhuo shows up, and 
calls in reinforcements (he will say "Ha, you think I come without a 
plan?!), Hu Zhen and Zhang Ji, kill them within 50 seconds of their 
appearance.  Yes, you read that right, 50 seconds, ten seconds less then 
a minute.  So, kill one, and rush STRAIGHT to the other.  If you need to, 
use a Musou rage, or along the way if you see an attack x2 grab it, so 
you can get a 1hit kill.  After this is all done, the valuable item will 
appear in the center of the stage, just grab it and play "kill the 
tyrant."
Description: Begin stage mounted on Shadow Runner
Effects: You cannot be knocked off of this horse

Elephant Harness – Battle of Nan Zhong (Nanman Forces) – Zhao Yun – Rush 
forward, and defeat Zhang Jiao and Pei Yuan Shao.  When they are out of 
the way, lots of crazy ****'s going to be going down, so you had better 
be ready. You should be on red hare, as with all of these missions, so 
head forward and occupy the attack base, then head back to the main base 
and kill as many soldiers that have been "converted" as you can, occupy 
the defense base on bottom while in the process.  When Zhang Bao up top 
starts stirring things up, go and kill him, to save Wu Tugu.  Next, ride 
down to Zhang Liang, who's starting his crap in the southeast, kill him 
to save King Mulu, and on the way, kill Bo Zhang, to save King Duosi.  
When all three have been saved, and if no enemies get inside the main 
camp, the valuable item will appear inside of the poisonous marsh, to the 
northeast of the gate on the right side.  Now, just charge north, taking 
out the supply base, and kill Zhang Jiao.
Description: Begin stage mounted on Elephant
Effects: No weapon attacks on the elephant, it charges, stomps and causes 
some pretty good damage to enemy troops

| Orbs |
--------

[Note: These MUST be done on Hard or Chaos mode.]

Fire Orb – Battle of Si Shui Gate (Allied Forces) – Lu Bu – Simple, 
especially with Lu Bu, just kill 200 enemies within 2 minutes, now, if 
you got his 4th weapon, you know how simple it is.  Rush to the center, 
slay, kill, maim, murder, commit genocide, ETC.  The Valuable Item 
appears up top where Hu Zhen and Yuan Shu start out.  When your finished, 
just rush to Hua Xiong, and kick his butt.

more damage.

Ice Orb – Battle of Guan Du (Yuan Shao's Forces) – Lu Bu – Go forward, 
and rush through enemy lines, all the way to Guan Du Castle.  Seek out 
Cao Pi, and kill him.  When he's defeated (if you beat him within 5 
minutes of the stages beginning) the valuable item will appear in the 
middle of the stage, inside of Wu Chao, in front of Chunyu Qiong. Now, if 
you feel like it, just slay all the officers on the battlefield, and 
finish off Cao Cao.

covered in ice, so that you may beat the crap out of them.  If they die 
while encapsulated, ice breaks and they fall.

Yang (Light) Orb – Battle of Wu Zhang Plains (Shu Forces) – Lu Bu – Bah, 
this one is annoying.  You start off to the left of the plateau that 
later houses the Arbalests, so what do you do?  Rush to the middle Supply 
base, in the sequence of three protecting the Wei main camp.  First, you 
will meet Cao Ren, kill him and go left slightly, you'll bump into Xu 
Zhu, kill him. Ignore everyone on your way to them, and going from each 
to each, especially Deng Ai, he's just a pain in the but. Go right all 
the way, to the gate, and find and slay Zhen Ji.  The valuable item will 
appear on a plateau, left of your starting place. But, on your way out, 
don't forget to payback Deng Ai for his interference, and kick his fat 
ass.  Rush back into the enemy camp and kill Sima Yi.
Description: Attacks break through the enemy's guard.
Effects: Breaks enemy guard while doing charge attacks.

Yin (Shadow) Orb – Battle of Wu Zhang Plains (Wei Forces) – Lu Bu – Easy, 
start off by taking the two attack bases in the center, and cutting off 
the supply line to the east, rush through the enemy lines, slaying Yue 
Ying along the way, and kill Jiang Wei, I recommend finding a Musou Rage 
first, that can be annoying.  The Item appears in the middle of the 
field.  If you want to end it fast, just seek out Zhuge Liang by going 
back the way that you killed Jiang Wei.  Kill Zhuge and its over.
Description: Empties Musou Gauge and enemies may be defeated in one blow.
Effects: One Hit Kills baby. Uses Musou.

bit, Yu Jin will show up, kill him within a minute.  Soon Zhang Liao will 
show up, take him on, and then head back up top and he will appear once

arrive.  Pretty damn easy!  Charge down to Sun Jian, kill him, and it's 
yours!  The item (which I found on accident as well, never noticed the 
message) appears on top of the map, right ahead of Guo Si's starting

where you started.  Just rush to Zhang Jiao, and kill him.  Don't worry 
about the tornados, they don't affect you personally.

gets to the ship.  As soon as he's dead, rush over to Zhuge Liang's 
position (right below) and wait for him to retreat, when he says there's 
no need for him on the battlefield anymore, kill him.  The Valuable item 
will appear on the fifth ship in, 2nd row of Wu Ships, left side, close

defeat him.  When he is dead, quickly go after Sima Yi, and kill him 
within three minutes of Xu Zhu's death.  Don't stop to kill anyone on the 
way; don't kill anything unless you're on your horse and charging 
through.  The valuable item appears in the bottom, at the end of the path 
going east from the Shu main camp, close to Deng Ai. When you're done,

supply base and go towards King Mulu, and kill all of the beast masters 
you see. There are three of them in there, and you have to kill all three 
within 1 minute (60 seconds) of the stages beginning.  The valuable item 
will appear right in the allied main base, next to Meng You's unit. 
Before you rush back to get the item, kill King Mulu.  Grab the item, 
kill King Duosi and Wu Tugu.  Now, the three northerners will show up, 
kill them (Yong Kai, upper left corner, Gao Ding, upper right corner and 
Zhu Bao, lower right corner), and the battle ends.

Tribal Remedy – Battle of He Fei Castle (Wei Forces) – Ma Chao – Its 
simple here, kill all of the ambushes and the rams.  The ambushes consist 
of three people, Sun Shao (ambush next to Cao Pi's position, in top left 
corner) Pan Zhong and Jiang Qin (The ambushes on the ships to the right 
of He Fei Castle).  When the battle starts, go kill Taishi Ci, and wait 
for the Wu Navy to show up.  Go and kill Pan Zhong and Jiang Qin, and 
rush back to the inner castle main gate, and destroy the ram that has 
shown up.  When that is clear, go up top, where Sun Shao's ambush has 
appeared on the hill, and take him out. By now, another ram has appeared 
(this time on the Wu Navy's Ships to the right), so go take that out.

your good, this won't even matter, but kill him before Cao Cao's arrival)

Demon Band - Battle of Xi Liang (Yellow Turban Forces) – Zuo Ci – I know, 
he doesn't have a spear, but his cards have the attack length of one, and

anyone in your way.  Take over the attack base, and go save Zhang Liang 
(just meet up with him).  Now, Ma Chao will appear in the northeast, way

Tips and Tricks - Get Ahead of the Game 
__________________________________________________________________

-Before battle, always check Preparations, (Weapons, Items, Bodyguards)


-If a bodyguard is nearby, and you see Musou wine (the thing that fully 
restores all Musou) get him as close as possible when you touch it, then 
you both get full Musou, same goes for meat buns and full elixir.

-Battles do not end until YOU kill the enemy general, no one else can 
kill him, even if he has no life and something else slashes him.


-Find a characters best crowd clearing technique, and use it often, best 
for killing hundreds of those pesky soldiers.

-When an officer has a video introduction (Zhang Liao in the battle of He 
Fei, Sun Quan in the battle of He Fei Castle, Lu Bu in the battle of Hu 
Lao Gate) if you run away from them, they will taunt you, and allied 
morale will go down.


-Have a new officer? Want to test out his skills?  Go to Free Musou and 
choose the 'Battle of Liang Province' (181 A.D.), the map is easy, 
simple, and lots of enemies to kill.


-Try all of your Combo attacks (S+/\) (SS +/\) (SSS+/\) and later on with 
other weapons, even more (S+/\) techniques!!


-Having trouble with a tough enemy?  Use your Musou.  When he's on the 
ground, run behind him, and attack as soon as he stands up, keep doing 
this until you've eliminated him.   It's a bit cheap, but it gets the job 
done.  

-Strategist type generic officers tend to drop shields.

-Warrior type generic officers tend to drop swords.

-Officers with high morale emit energy, which doubles their strength and 
defense.  The same goes for enemy commanders (regardless of their morale)

-Tired of dying, and doing the same map over and over?  Protect the main 
focus point.  If your leader keeps dying, rush to his aid, and beat down 
some enemy ass.  The same goes for preventing a castle from falling or 
any other objective.

-Each different type of base has different weapons, Supply base warriors 
have pikes, Attack base warriors have double sabers, and Defense base 
warriors have shields and fork spears.

-When anyone says any mission, even if its not directed to you, help out.  
Clear off a bridge, destroy a siege ramp, empty out an attack base, 
whatever!


-This one is a bit personal.  Whatever you do, no matter how bad the game 
pisses you off, no matter how much the enemy cheats, don't hit your PS2, 
don't slam your controller, and don't break the game.  Take the anger out 
on something else... Don't ask...


-Don't take up useless space for Musou saves, only make 4/5 save spaces 
on your memory card.  1 for Wu, 1 for Shu, 1 for Wei and 1 or 2 for the 
unaligned forces, it saves space that way.


-Try and use your charge attack often, they are useful attacks.

-Want to become a true warrior of the three kingdoms? (Achieved by 
killing 1000 troops) then stand at a checkpoint, just out of range for 
the guard to attack you, masses upon masses of unit will attack, and the 
base wont close, due to the guardian staying!


-Save Musou Rages, don't use them as soon as you get them, they DO last 
till the end of the mission.  Save it for a tight spot, or the enemy 
commander, and if you can have your Musou filled bodyguard nearby for 
maximum damage.


-Bodyguards do help a lot; choose the one right for your fighting style.  
Are you an up close and personal fighter?  Choose someone who will get 
right in there with you.  Are you a cautious player? Choose a long-range 
attacker.  


-Are you completely new at Dynasty Warriorsฎ?  Build your skills in 
Challenge mode first, granted it's a fully upgraded warrior, but its 
great for teaching how to attack, kill, block and use other combos.


-Need health?  Every map contains two Dim Sums (increases health by ten) 
and one Musou wine (increases Musou gauge by ten).  Officers drop them, 
and random vases contain them.

FAQs - Ask All of Your Dynastic Questions 
__________________________________________________________________

Q.
Is there a CAW (Create a Warrior) Section of this game?
A.
No.  Everyone Stop Asking.  There is no CAW function, and bitching about 
it won't help.

Q.
I just started playing, is this all real?
A.
The game is based on historical events, yes.  It's based on a book called 
'Romance of the Three Kingdoms', also known as 'San Guo Yan Yi,' written 
by Luo Guanzhong, about the civil war period after the crumble of the Han 
Dynasty, (Approximately 180 A.D. to 280 A.D.)

Q.
My weapon has a blue circle next to the name, what is this?
A.
That symbol means that the weapon is capable of an evolution attack.  An 
evolution attack is triggered by continually hitting the attack button 
(it will trigger after S6, you'll know because S6 is a charged attack).  

Q.
Does the bodyguards HEAL skill heal your general as well?
A.
I'm sorry for jumping the gun on this too fast, yes, they do heal you.  
Recently I noticed a bodyguard, (has a stave) using heal, and it healed 
my officer 50 HP, so yes, it does.  They tend to heal you when you get 
dangerously low, or if you've been damaged a lot recently.  Gotta love 
'em.

Q.
When I choose an officer, his stats are high, but when I go to the 
preparation screen in battle, his stats are lower.  Why is this? And how 
do I fix this?
A.
Quite honestly, I never noticed this.  But some people have complained, 
so I went to the GameFAQs board, and got some information (P.S. sorry for 
not adding credit to you, I forgot your SN, if you read this, please 
email me and give me your name so I can give you credit.)

~"The stats on the select character screen are for maxing the character 
with items attained in battle such as Attack+1, Defense+8, ECT. The stats 
bars on the item screen is for the stats bar with the character select 
plus the stats added with items. So if you put on a weapon with 20 life 
with a 20 peacock charm on someone with full life, you would max out the 
item stats bar."~


Q.
Why should we listen to this FAQ?
A. 
Because I said so, any questions? Good.

Future Updates - Planning the Dynasty Ahead 
__________________________________________________________________             

I plan to give a walkthrough and hints for the first Musou mission of 
each character as I get on in the game, and play more.  I also plan to 
give the history of each character, NAME each character, and give which 
of their moves are the best crowd clearers.

I also plan on finding all the Musou wine and Dim Sum locations.

Would like to give a brief way of obtaining 4th weapons for each 
character.

-Would like to overhaul this whole thing, so it makes more sense.
