Added DiffLines:

* HandsOffParenting: He doesn't seem to interact with his son much most especially in the hypothetical route where they don't even talk to each other asides from the in-game quotes where he does acknowledge him. It's possible that he's too busy fighting for a land of benevolence and doesn't have much time to be with his son which could also explained Liu Shan's lack of assertiveness in the later years. It doesn't help that historical counterpart abandoned his wives and children in the middle of the battle just to save himself and there's his infamous baby dropping incident after the Battle of Changban in the novel.

Added DiffLines:

* UndyingLoyalty: To Liu Shan. Judging by her quotes, she knows about his true nature. In his Legend Mode in 7XL, she remains on his side despite that she's fighting her former Shu officers. In Jin's hypothetical route in 8, she's one of the few Shu officers who didn't join Jiang Wei's rebellion possibly due to her bond with Liu Shan.

Added DiffLines:

* FairForItsDay: He had mastered the strategies of Zhuge Liang; but had met equally skilled opponents in Wei's Deng Ai. On a different level of analysis, this was to show the reader/player that what used to work cannot work if change is to truly occur; a lesson that Liu Shan picked up, but not Jiang Wei.

* IHaveManyNames: His prior name historically was said to be Shan Fu in his early years before he changed it by the time he picked up studying. The novel inverts it to have Xu Shu be his real name instead.

** Even then, no one actually liked the historical Fa Zheng either since he was quite the shady person who did what he pleased; despite this he was still respected for his skills and was greatly missed when he passed away.

* HistoricalBadassUpgrade: The real Zhuge Liang was a brilliant politician and administrator, but in terms of battlefield tactics, he's not that good (although it's by no means bad, just decent/average).

decent/average). A ton of myths have lead to a lot of scrutiny.
** HistoricalHeroUpgrade: Debated. Chen Shou, one of the main historical chroniclers has often negatively reviewed him due to some possible bad chemistry between the two, and the fact that Zhuge Liang wasn't that modest of a person from what he says.
* IDidWhatIHadToDo: Especially regarding Ma Su's execution.

** That, and the historical Liu Bei was known to lose all of his campaigns. His only first real victory was at Hanzhong with the help of Fa Zheng.



* HistoricalHeroUpgrade: Liu Bei in real life while he had the tenacity and charisma, was by no means a nice person; he constantly did things for his own gain even to the point of betraying everyone he served under, and his infamous doings in Runan.



* InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons: Another dragon motif, only he like his brother Guan Yu, shares the same Huanglong/Kouryuu motif in his prior weapons.



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

Added DiffLines:

** Historically however, it was hard to tell his actual age. The old man aspect of it was a carry-over mainly from the novel.

* MakeMeWannaShout[=/=]MightyRoar[=/=]ScreamingWarrior: His aerial Musou and Type Action in ''[[WarriorsOrochi Warriors Orochi 3]]'' are fine examples of this. Plays well since the novel Zhang Fei was said to have a loud roar. At the Battle of Changban he scares away the Wei army (numbered at close to about ''a million'' at the time) simply ''by shouting''.

Added DiffLines:

* StarPower[=/=]StellarName: The motifs for his weapons are nods to the Eta Ursae Majoris star, mainly via its naming in Chinese/Japanese, the Pojun/Hagun (Crushing Army); a lot of Zhang Fei's weapons also have naming variations of it, and two of his Musou Attacks in the Japanese versions have the twin star (or amphiaster/diaster) naming as well.
