* RunningGag: Much of Zhenji’s unique dialog against enemy officers in ''[=DW8=]'' is with female characters who happen to be wives of major characters within their factions; her targets are Shangxiang, Zhurong, Yueying and Daqiao, Zhenji inflates her ego and taunts them with diminishing their value as proper women of etiquette compared to her grace, wondering how they even got married, slandering their husbands as well by saying they don’t have a keen eye for picking women. All the taunting doesn’t work though, the women Zhenji targets are all strong willed and will fire right back.

** 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.

* TheSmurfettePrinciple: Ever since her debut, Zhenji has been this for Wei, but she lost her status since the introduction of more ladies like Cai Wenji and Wang Yi. Both of them did not make the cut for the strategy RPG spinoff, once again relegating Zhen to this trope for Wei.

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

However, during the battle of Xia Pi, Lu Bu's forces were defeated by a combined Wei and Shu army. Lu Bu was defeated and captured by Cao Cao, and Zhang Liao would submit and faithfully serve Wei until his death. Most famously, he led a comparatively minuscule army at Hefei, and ''crushed'' a gigantic Wu force defending it, stopping Wu's northern invasion cold and leaving the whole kingdom terrified of him.

* AbilityOverAppearance: 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.

* AmericanDream: Mentioned in ''7'' and played with; part of Cao Cao's goal is to make a land where a man would be recognized for his talent, rather than heritage. Funny, because he's ''Chinese''.
** More than the AmericanDream, this is a reference to the concept of meritocracy, a Confucian ideal of civil service. China was the first to implement such a system in known history, before the Greeks; it was first recorded during the early Han Dynasty, 200s BC. Cao Cao was known to be a staunch advocator of Confucianism, so the change in characterization actually moved him closer to his historical counterpart.

* HistoricalBadassUpgrade: The developers have said that Dian Wei was designed to be bald in order to make him look strong and powerful, rather than any historic text (there's no evidence that he was bald).

* {{Badass}}: Powerful enough to earn Lu Bu's respect? Defeated a vastly larger army at Hefei? Easily counts.



* HonorBeforeReason: Inverted in Shu's historical route for 8 when Xu Huang participates in the flood attack at Fan Castle for the sake of his kingdom.

* HonorBeforeReason: Inverted in Shu's historical route for 8 when Xu Huang participates in the flood attack at Fan Castle for the sake of his kingdom. Lampshaded by Guan Yu.


Added DiffLines:

* DemotedtoExtra: Starts suffering from this as the Wei roster expands, particular in 6. Despite his early presence in 7 and 8 he winds up serving fairly minor roles as the series go on. Inverted in 8: Xtreme Legends where Wei's expanded scenarios put more focus on him.
