* HistoricalBadassUpgrade: Historically Dun was more of a bureaucrat and administrator, and his military record was abysmal.

to:

* HistoricalBadassUpgrade: Historically Dun was more of a bureaucrat and administrator, and his military record was abysmal. Specifically, his two well-known battles, Puyang and Bowang, ended in humiliating defeat. And in the former case not only he suffered HumiliationConga from Lu Bu's forces (falsely believed a [[FakeDefector fake surrender]], [[DistressedDude got caught off-guard and taken hostage by said fake defectors]], and had to be rescued by one of his loyal subordinates Han Hao), the battle also cost him his left eye, which was shot by a ''random stray arrow''. In the games, said arrow is usually shot by an enemy general rather than random stray arrow.



%%* MsFanservice: In all sorts of ways. Cao Pi's a lucky man.

%%* * MsFanservice: In all sorts Zhenji is essentially the first example of ways. Cao Pi's a lucky man.this trope for ''Dynasty Warriors'' series, as her clothes always show off her skin since her debut.


Added DiffLines:

* HistoricalHeroUpgrade: A bit minor since he isn't as "heroic" as other characters, but historical Cao Pi is known for many of his ruthlessnesses and KickTheDog moments. Among others, [[CainAndAbel he poisoned one of his brothers (Cao Zhang) to death]] ''in front of [[OutlivingOnesOffspring their mother]]'' [[TearJerker (who didn't realize Pi did it by himself)]], exiled another brother (Cao Zhi) for believing that their father favoured Zhi more over him as Zhi was a better poet and thus he was worried Zhi would attempt to take over his throne someday, attempted to execute Cao Hong (read: a cousin of Cao Cao's and ''one of his earliest and top generals who even saved him at least once'') [[DisproportionateRetribution over their personal petty grudges]], attempted to execute one of his subordinates for not attending his coronation ceremony as Wei Emperor (said subordinate is reported to be [[Characters/DynastyWarriorsJinKingdom Guo Huai]], [[TruthInTelevision who fell ill at the time]]), and finally either forced his first wife Lady Zhen (Zhenji) to commit suicide or antagonize her until she's depressed enough to DrivenToSuicide.

** Bizarrely, he may also draw inspiration from a minor villain in ''FistOfTheNorthStar.'' One of Shin's lackeys, Club, fights with the same type of dual claw gauntlets and several of Zhang He's stances are not unlike ones Club is drawn in during his ([[ForegoneConclusion rather brief]]) appearance.

* BigDamnHeroes: Historically and in his Legend Mode in ''4: XL'', where he charges out of his position held at Jiangling Castle to save Niu Jin's ass (who was provoked by the opposing Wu forces outside). He only gets demoted by one rank due to his successful efforts in that rescue.

* DualWielding: Twin broadswords between ''7'' and ''NEXT''. This was very much true for his historical-self due to being both ThePerfectionist and TheAce, that he even resorted to learning how to wielding both swords and bows [[TheSouthpaw even with his left hand]] when he was growing up.
