* HistoricalVillainUpgrade: His antagonism to Zhuge Liang (and Liu Bei's forces to an extent) is actually taken from ''Romance of the Three Kingdoms'' novel. Historically, Zhou Yu is more supportive to the alliance between Sun Quan and Liu Bei. Even until his death, he had to repeatedly remind his lord that their real enemy is Cao Cao.

* HistoricalBadassUpgrade: An unconventional inversion: Two of his best achievements in history, [[DefeatingTheUndefeatable defeating Hua Xiong]] ''[[DefeatingTheUndefeatable and]]'' [[DefeatingTheUndefeatable Lu Bu]] in Campaign against Dong Zhuo, are credited to someone else: Guan Yu for the former, Guan Yu and his sworn brothers for the latter. Detractors who know the real history like to point this out.

* HistoricalVillainUpgrade: His antagonism to Zhuge Liang (and Liu Bei's forces to an extent) is actually taken from ''Romance of the Three Kingdoms'' novel. This portrayal is apparently popular as it's not only ''Dynasty Warriors'' that uses this adaptation. Historically, Zhou Yu is more supportive to the alliance between Sun Quan and Liu Bei. Even until his death, he had to repeatedly remind his lord that their real enemy is Cao Cao.

* HistoricalHeroUpgrade: The games tend to shy away from mentioning [[KickTheDog the historical Sun Ce's brutal purges of Taoist faiths]] and change Gan Ji's motive for attempting to assassinate him.

* {{Badass}}: Makes you wonder how things in the war would have gone if he lived...



* {{Badass}}: One of the best in the story and the game. Even [[BloodKnight Lu Bu]] admits him as {{worthy opponent}} in the latter's hypothetical route in ''8:XL''.

* SavageWolves: The naming motif of his weapons in the older games, which follows his dad's theme naming towards the Sirius (heavenly wolf) star. It's most likely a nod to his negative connotation given to him and his sons in Book of Wei via Gongsun Dun's entry; the devs at Omega Force [[InsultBackfire instead decided to make it a proud motif, which more so in Sun Quan's case means stronger ties to his family for him]].
