* LoveInterest: One of the few female characters of the series who does not have one or is one for others. No one is portrayed as her love interest after her introduction and her relationship with Cao Cao lacks the mildest hints of being anything other than platonic. It's justified in that case because she married another man after Cao Cao rescued her.

* RevengeBeforeReason: In ''Warriors Orochi 3'', Wang Yi appears to be controlled by [[WarriorsOrochi Orochi]], but when she breaks free of it, she still wants revenge on Ma Chao and attempts to kill him until Noh, [[VideoGame/SamuraiWarriors Oichi]], and Sima Yi stop her. It forms an interesting contrast with Ma Chao: while he too is motivated heavily by revenge (and for a much less justifiable reason), he is able to put aside his hatred of Cao Cao for the greater good and does have [[ForGreatJustice other major motivations]], while Wang Yi's revenge has utterly consumed her.

Note; historically when she fought against Ma Chao her own son was in his army.

* EqualyOpportunityEvil: Say what you will about his methods, but no one can say that Cao Cao didn't know real talent when he saw it. Incredibly Fat? ''Ludicrously Flamboyant''? Not the brightest bulb in the shed? doesn't matter - if you do good by him, he personally sees that you're rewarded equally.

** Cai Wenji’s utmost importance to Cao Cao is shown at its best in ''[=DW8=] XL'' final stage for Wei’s campaign, with her supposedly going missing Cao Cao issues an order for his men to find and bring her back at once; the catch is that he doesn’t issue the order to just any officer, Cao Cao orders 4 out of the Five Wei Great Generals to personally go out and escort Cai Wenji back; only Xiahou Dun skipped this event.

* {{Expy}}: Weirdly, of Rob Liefeld character [[ComicBook/XForce Shatterstar]]. Yue Jin has the same sort of facial protector, unusual paired blades, long flowing sashes, [[FashionableAsymmetry lopsided shoulder protector]], large exposed biceps, and the pointy knees of later Liefeldian armor designs; even his hair color isn't too far off. The only thing he's missing is the ponytail and the obnoxiously gritty dark AntiHero personality.

* SparedByAdaptation: Historically died sometime before Cao Cao's death, probably shortly after or at the Battle of Ruxukou (his last appearance in the novel, where he got shot in the face by Gan Ning). But in the game, he is still alive during Cao Pi's reign.

WordOfGod has it that he was designed as a character that would defy the audience's expectations.
** Although his surrender still happened in the historical route carryover in [=DW8=], however, he's a lot more regretful in being forced to surrender than pleading for his life.
