** Jin's Qilin has a special note in which it's a chimeric beast with occasional interpretations giving it a tiger's body, but it will always have a dragon-like face. This references how the Sima clan, and their supporters were largely the ones responsible for the defeats of Wu and Shu.

* In DW8, you have to build up a base from nothing, recruiting opposing soldiers into your fighting force and building it into a city worthy of the Emperor. I'm sorry, did Koei just want their own version of [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain Mother Base?]]

* Each kingdom usually has some sort of animal representation. Wei has the Fenghuang, Shu has the Dragon, Wu has the Tiger and Jin has the Qilin. What's notable is that the Fenghuang and the Dragon have a special relationship together in which they are often seen as polar opposites comparable to yin and yang. This lampshades how Wei and Shu have continuously been at odds with each other.

* In ''8'', Zhao Yun leading Zhang Bao and Guan Xing into battle at Yiling declaring "For vengeance" seems to be an OutOfCharacterMoment bordering on CharacterDerailment (As historically and in previous installments, he was against the Yiling war). Until you remember that the latter two's respective fathers were killed by Wu's hands, regardless of circumstances. At this point, all Bao and Xing care about is avenging their fathers and were less likely to be talked out of it (They would've likely gone off themselves regardless). Yun likely decided to let them to go on their quest for vengeance while trying to find Lie Bei in hopes of stopping this battle with as minimum casualties as possible.

* Another one I just realized that applies to 5: The reason everyone else seems so inconpetent is that you're the commander. Even in joint battles, you issue direct orders to everyone else on the battlefield. It's just AuthorityEqualsAsskicking combined with ConservationOfNinjutsu.

* Cao Cao in DW7 seemed rather colder and more distant than he was in DW6 . This is because in the earlier installment's story line, he didn't have to deal with the loss of Dian Wei or Xiahou Yuan as well as come to terms with his own impending illness.

* In the Empires series, I could never quite understand why, unless you use a tactic, you always start at a severe disadvantage in bases. Then, I realized; When invading, you would normally start with the first couple of bases you take, right? But, when defending, by the games invasion rules,'' you aren't allowed to appear ''until the enemy has taken most of your bases!

* In Dynasty Warriors 6, Cao Cao is seen playing Go against Xiahou Dun during several cutscenes. It's eventually revealed that Cao Cao wanted to create a world where a person was judged by his abilities, not by his heritage. In Go, the pieces have no inherent value. They only have worth once they've been placed on the board, depending on their placement and relationship with other pieces.
