* StatusBuff: His Type Action Special in ''Warriors Orochi 1'' and ''2'', and his new Type Action in ''3''.

* StatusBuff: His Type Action Special in ''Warriors Orochi 1'' and ''2'', and his new Type Action in ''3''. ''3'' (which instead also [[RegeneratingHealth regenerates health]]).



* CharacterizationMarchesOn: He had a major role in ''5'' before becoming playable. He was a little cowardly, but madly in love with Xingcai, enough that he'd rush into battle if she got into trouble despite being... rather [[NonActionGuy unsuited]] to it. The ending saw him training to protect himself for her sake.

* ImprobableWeaponUser: A '''bench''' in 8: Empires.

* ImprobableWeaponUser: A '''bench''' in 8: Empires.''8: Empires''.



* NamedWeapons: One of his higher-tiered weapons is actually Cao Cao's other sword, the Azure Band Sword; that very sword was the same one Zhao Yun took from Xiahou En at Changban in the novel when Liu Shan was being rescued by him as a baby. Thus, out of MythologyGag, it ends up in his hands to use when he's grown up.



** Amusingly inverted in gameplay terms for ''Warriors Orochi'', where his special move/Type Action while RegeneratingHealth makes him temporary ''completely invincible'' (as opposed to his father's which raises attack power), making him extremely easy to use on harder difficulty levels compared to his father.
* RoyalRapier: His WeaponOfChoice as playable, from 7 to 8: Xtreme Legends. He's the son of a sitting emperor after all. He's gotta look classy.

WordOfGod states that it was meant to make him more of a foil to his father in terms of Liu Shan using a quicker-yet-lighter sword while his dad placed more emphasis on heavier-twin-swords.

** This also applies to his historical self when one looks at it from the viewpoint that Zhuge Liang ignored Wei Yan's sound suggestions with his own bias towards him; something Chen Shou often noted in his own records. Wei Yan's plans for fortifying Hanzhong however, historically lasted for a long time even after his end.



** Also, this is mainly due to the case with Zhuge Liang historically not trusting Wei Yan and vice versa. Wei Yan also had notable amounts of suggestions that were quite sound and was an efficient officer as noted by Chen Shou, but Zhuge Liang and a few others shot him down to the point of him being villainized when the novel came about (even in other adaptations of the Three Kingdoms history).



* ShockAndAwe: His EX and Musou Attacks from ''7'' is lightning based.

* WeaponOfChoice:: His signature weapon in all appearances except ''8'' is a MagicStaff. He always levitates on it for his victory pose, but his moveset in ''5'' and ''7'' and ''8'' deserves note for him ''air surfing'' on it as an attack.

* HorsebackHeroism: One of, if not ''the'' best mounted fighters in most games. In earlier titles he was practically unstoppable with the right loadout, and even in later installments the spear moveset on horseback is a force to be reckoned with.

** In ''3'' to ''5'', he's hampered by a moveset that leaves him very vulnerable to being juggled even during his comical regular attacks, but whip out that whirlwind Musou Attack and watch your KO count go through the roof. This Musou Attack is homaged in ''8'' as his True Rage Attack.
** Also, in [[VideoGame/DynastyWarriorsOnline the online game]], his moveset is this. The moves have short range, but the staff's attack is one of the highest in the game, and even with his short range good use of him can leave the badly beaten, as well as his musou remaining just as deadly as before. His moveset is also one of the few that retains the ability to use the exploding orb,with the right crest, which is basically a DifficultButAwesome way to prevent yourself being comobed.

** FightingForAHomeland: Shared with Zhang He, Zhuge Liang's fourth weapon in the Asian ports instead is named after the Zhuque/Suzaku (lit. Vermilion Sparrow). Though in Zhuge Liang's case, it's due to the usual orientation of the Zhuque/Suzaku being in the West, where his home kingdom of Shu is located.

* MythicalMotifs: Aside from being associated with [[AnimalMotifs stallions]], his armor is always adorned with dragon motifs, despite the latter being the faction's overall motif.

** InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons: Again, also follows this motif as a Shu general in his weapons' Asian port names; his fourth, fifth and level 11 weapons carry the motif of a rider who can even ride on a dragon.



* ShockAndAwe: His EX Attack and "Thunder Slice" Musou from ''7'' are both lightning base.

* ShockAndAwe: His EX Attack and "Thunder Slice" Musou from ''7'' are both lightning base. His original fifth weapon's Asian port name even mentions a dragon rider who rides on lightning to top it off.

* HistoricalHeroUpgrade: Historically, he was a rather brutal person. Cao Cao only pushed him out of Xiliang ''after'' he attacked the warlord, which led to Ma Teng's execution as a punishment for Ma Chao. In the games, it's the other way around: Ma Teng is killed by Cao Cao for conspiring to assassinate the latter and Ma Chao wants to avenge him. Wang Yi is hardly unique in having had her family killed by him just to hurt her. He was never less than loyal to Shu, just as in the games, but he wasn't necessarily very concerned with moral behavior, and he ''certainly'' wasn't always the just and upright hero that often saves the day.

* InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons: Again, another Shu general with a heavy dragon motif. Unlike Zhao Yun, Guan Yu primarily applies to his weaponry. In the Asian scripts, his weapons are named after Asian mythological dragons (Azure Dragon, Yellow Dragon, God Dragon, White Dragon and Black Dragon, to be precise) throughout the course of the series, though the Azure/Blue/Green Dragon is his signature weapon lifted straight from the novel.

Added DiffLines:

* InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons: He's known as "the Sleeping Dragon" for a reason. His original fifth weapon and level 11 weapon also reference a dragon in their original Asian port names, especially the former nodding to the phoenix motif his friend Pang Tong has and with the latter nodding to the Qinglong/Seiryuu (lit. Azure Dragon).

Originally named Shan Fu historically in his earlier life, Xu Shu ended up arrested after a murder he committed to avenge his friend. Despite being toured around town by the police as he didn't disclose his name, he was soon freed and went to study by myself avidly. He eventually studied at some point under Sima Hui with Zhuge Liang and Pang Tong (via the novel).
