** What's even better about it is how it shows Cao Cao in its lowest state and from certain point of view, he is basically a nobody. Now compare his state as story progresses where he becomes a [[FromNobodyToNightmare nightmare]] (for his enemies, anyway) and essentially the most powerful man in China. Also, unlike Wu and Jin, Cao Cao and his Xiahou cousins have nothing but their pride, strength, and small group of loyal soldiers in the beginning of their story. At least Wu and Jin begin their story mode where they're already an established faction. Now more FridgeBrilliance kicks in when you realize Liu Bei and his brothers also doesn't have any homeland of their own for the majority of the first half of Shu's story mode, and how hard they had to struggle to realize their dreams of benevolence. In the end, Cao Cao and Liu Bei are {{not so different}}, after all.

* The beginning of Wei's story in ''8'', Escape from Luo Yang: Cao Cao has failed to assassinate the tyrannical Dong Zhuo and is captured. It's almost certain that he'll be executed for treason. So, will he give in to the predicament? ''Hell no!'' He steals one of his captors' spear and throws it at Dong Zhuo to distract Lu Bu who predictably blocks the spear away from his tyrannical lord. While Lu Bu is distracted, Cao Cao uses that chance to get the hell out of there to Xiahou Dun and Xiahou Yuan who was waiting outside. Both retainers anticipated their lord's failure and found he's being chased by Dong Zhuo's men. Xiahou Yuan shot arrows to their chasers and Xiahou Dun gives Cao Cao his sword. Then, three of them began their running from Luo Yang. Unlike the other three kingdoms' story, there are no allied army. There are only three of them. As if Wei needs more proof to emphasize their badassery! ** In addition, Lu Bu is available as BonusBoss. That's right, you get a chance to face Lu Bu in the very first stage of story mode, unlike the usual where you wouldn't face him until Hulao Gate!

** Jin has the Sima clan conquer both Wu and Shu, with a notable lack of hostility to the Cao clan. Jiang Wei once again proves his stubbornness by assembling himself with Wu's remnants, joining together in the area that cost Cao Cao's ambition, Chi Bi. Even against a fire attack, the Sima clan continue to push through, showing the difference between then and now, and eventually defeat Jiang Wei. What happens when Jiang swears to turn into a ghost in the afterlife to oppose the Sima clan? Sima Yi, Shi and Zhao all shouting "Imbecile".

* The Battle of Heifei is one for both Wei and Wu. Wei for being able to turn the seemingly unwinnable situation and defeat the Wu army, and Wu being able to escape with only limited casualties, despite having to face TheDreaded Zhang Liao. This gets further explored in ''8'' where Wei was able to pull this off despite Li Dian and Yue Jin not agreeing with Zhang Liao, putting aside their differences and being able to improvise a devastating pincer attack. And on the other side, Ling Tong and Gan Ning finally putting aside their differences to protect Sun Quan and take some Wei officers down. Both sides ended up forming TrueCompnions from this battle.

* Four words: The Battle Of Chibi. The combined (yet still massively outnumbered) armies of Shu (led by Zhuge Liang) and Wu (led by Zhou Yu) against the MASSIVE naval fleet of Cao Cao's Wei. ALWAYS one of the absolute most important battles in any installment of the series, and one involving ridiculous amounts of badassery from all three sides.

** For Jin, [[spoiler:convincing Xiahou Ba to stay, keeping Guo Huai alive, turn Wen Yang to your side and "fixing" Zhuge Dan will allow you to counter Wen Qin's ambush and save Sima Shi. However, the real fun begins with the next two obligatory stages. They have Sima Shi conquering Shu and then Sima Zhao conquering Wu right after!]]
