* Chi Bi (or the Red Cliffs as it's evidently known outside of DynastyWarriors) seems like such a weird OutOfCharacterMoment for Cao Cao. He goes from teaching Yuan Shao that numbers won't make up for inferior strategy in combat to being taught basically the same lesson from Zhou Yu. What's up with that?

* Uh, a question for the blacksmith who made the Peach Garden trio their weapons: how in the holy moon do you ''make'' 'ancient swords'?

** The way I looked at it, Cao Cao sort of made the right moves to counteract his weakness in naval warfare. He even wrote off an enemy fire attack because he knew the winds would only send the fire back onto their own fleet. Honestly, he lost because of the winds blowing in a different direction than he knew they would. Honestly, would you have foresaw that move either?

*** As importantly, Zhou Yu took action against the steps that Cao Cao ''did'' attempt to counteract these weaknesses, such as [[spoiler:his FeedTheMole plot to get Cao Cao's "local admirals" executed]], while the entire "chain the ships" plot was a reaction to the unfamiliarity of Cao Cao's northern troops with naval warfare.

** He also basically made the same mistake Napoleon did: he underestimated just how badly an army is weakened by unfamiliar climate and fatigue. His army was made up of Northerners, who were unused to the warm weather and had never been on a ship before. This combined with tropical diseases (against which they had no immunity) and weariness due to the long campaign meant his army was at only a tiny fraction of its effective strength. Had he taken steps to counteract these factors, things might not have gone so badly for him.

** It's hard not to bask in the glory of a million man army and believe that you can rest safely in the safety of numbers and experience.
