* What, no mention of Lu Bu? Every time you meet him is a moment of awesome. He comes with his own theme music, for crying out loud!
** And let's not forget being able to play as him. Especially in Dynasty Warriors 6, where the final level in his story line is basically Lu Bu and his handful of followers against [[spoiler:all Three Kingdoms, Yuan Shao, Dong Zhuo, and Zhang Jiao]], with the last two coming back from the dead just to fight him! If that isn't a CMOA, I don't know what is.

** There's also the act of beating Lu Bu at Hu Luo Gate, at the point where he's at his [[PurposelyOverpowered strongest]], Especially on a higher difficulty when everyone in the Allied forces it telling you avoid the guy like the [[TheDreaded plague]]. Lower level, you've overcome the odds and beaten him. Higher level, you've come very far and outshone China's greatest warrior. I challenge you to beat the guy on HarderThanHard and not feel like a badass!

* The Battle of Hefei 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 TrueCompanions from this battle. Even more awesomely, the historical Battle of Xiaoyao Ford (one of the many battles Wei and Wu fought in and around Hefei) had Zhang Liao do some incredible battlefield stunts. [[labelnote:A brief description]]When Sun Quan saw that the situation had become more stable and Zhang Liao was only left with slightly more than a hundred men, he ordered He Qi to surround Zhang Liao's men. During the battle He Qi retrieved Xu Sheng's personal mao (矛, a 5m long spear). Zhang Liao fought fiercely and succeeded in breaking out of the encirclement. When his remaining men, still trapped inside, shouted, "Has our general abandoned us?" Zhang Liao ''plowed back through enemy ranks and rescued his men''. Sun Quan's men were stunned by Zhang Liao's valour and did not dare to stand in his way.[[/labelnote]]

** Notably, each faction has a specific battle in which things stop going their way in the historical route, and which they can hypothetically retain the upper hand if the right prerequisites are met. For Wei, this battle is Chibi, a famous and climactic showdown with both the other kingdoms' forces. For Shu, it is Fan Castle, in which Guan Yu and his son are slain in a coordinated assault from both the other kingdoms, forever breaking the alliance between Wu and Shu and forever separating the three sworn brothers that founded that nation. For Wu, it is this struggle against a little band of desperate and outnumbered men where their fortunes are made or broken. And even in their hypothetical scenario, in which they prevent, step by step, all of the comrades' attempts to stymie their assault, Zhang Liao doesn't go down easy, [[RecurringBoss getting up each time he's beaten with greater strength and combat resistance]] as he battles to the bitter end.

** 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".

** 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!
