* TheAlcoholic: Drinking too much is often the cause of his problems. It's PlayedForLaughs in the DownloadableContent of the [[VideoGame/WarriorsOrochi crossover]], where he's always trying to have a drink, only for Guan Yu, Xingcai and [[VideoGame/SamuraiWarriors Ina]] to hunt him down, chastise and forbid him from drinking again.

* TheAlcoholic: Drinking A popular carryover from the original novel, where drinking too much is often the cause of his problems. It's PlayedForLaughs in the DownloadableContent of the [[VideoGame/WarriorsOrochi crossover]], where he's always trying to have a drink, only for Guan Yu, Xingcai and [[VideoGame/SamuraiWarriors Ina]] to hunt him down, chastise and forbid him from drinking again. His real life version however, never had this issue at all.

Added DiffLines:

* DeadpanSnarker: Often has this, especially towards Zhao Yun due to him mistaking him for being a mere bandit-not-yet-reformed in the past (Zhou Cang just got recruited by Guan Yu at that time) and having just killed off Pei Yuanshao before Zhou Cang can tell him the good news. He still holds a grudge against Zhao Yun to this day and often snarks at his expense.

* 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). 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.

scrutiny; the real Zhuge Liang was also someone who did things more by the textbook as he was unable to adapt his plans to the ever-changing conditions of the battlefield, but always managed to have his troops come back in nearly one piece.
* 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. A common fact that was expressed was that Zhuge Liang often dismissed Wei Yan despite his reasonable proposals, and only trusted in his cronies when it came to giving them higher positions.



** You better remember that he's smarter than you. Only Liu Bei is exempt from this.

Added DiffLines:

** Ironically, in the case of Zhou Yu, he's able to hold standard friendly conversations with Zhuge Liang in the ''Warriors Orochi'' crossover, showing that it's their loyalties to their respective kingdoms that have made them enemies.

** 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 doubles with BadassBookworm in that the historical Wei Yan's favorite book to read was the I Ching/Yijing (Book of Changes), the sole inspiration for the said defensive plans in the first place.

* {{Gonk}}: Being extremely ugly is what got him turned away from serving Wu and led to him wearing a mask. His character model in modern games is extremely short, with bizarre proportions, and what can be seen of his face isn't very flattering either.

His character model in modern games is extremely short, with bizarre proportions, and what can be seen of his face isn't very flattering either. Debates have lead to a commonly-believed fact that the historical Zhuge Liang when chronicling the events gave this description to Pang Tong out of envy for his abilities.


Added DiffLines:

** In real life however, it was noted that Pang Tong's real skills were in military strategy, as his handling of domestic administration was piss poor at best.

* DashAttack: While a lot of his attacks involve some solid stabbing manuveurs, his original C1 attack in ''4'' and ''5'' takes the cake as a full-on rushing spear charge slide. The same goes with his Type Action in ''Warriors Orochi 3''.

* HistoricalBadassUpgrade: This game series fully cements his current status in the ''Dynasty Warriors'' fandom and novel readers alike; the historical Zhao Yun didn't achieve much, and had only minor military rankings. Also, he is historically more like a personal guard for Liu Bei and Liu Shan (akin to Dian Wei for Cao Cao) rather than high-ranking frontline general.

Arguably, another contribution to this status of his is also possibly some historical fictional biographies of him which can be deemed as "ancient Chinese fanfiction". WordOfGod stated that this was because the series needed a poster boy hero that suited their tastes for an action-based setting (seeing that their initial proposal being Liu Bei didn't fit into that concept too well).

* BilingualBonus: Yun's third-tier weapons in the Japanese script literally translates to either "Dragon Nerve" or "Brave Dragon", but are also named after the Japanese name of the gentian bellflower. Meanwhile, the name of his level 11 weapon in some installments[[note]]For the Asian port[[/note]] means "Inverted Scale/Imperial Wrath", a nod to the sovereign-to-dragon parallels - that angering a ruler with a sensitive subject is just as bad as rubbing a dragon's scale the wrong way.
