* AlwaysChaoticEvil: When you find an eunuch, they're never going to be portrayed as decent:
** In the very first chapter, the Ten Regular Attendants abuse their power, leading to the uprising of the Yellow Scarves.
** Huang Hao is regarded as the one who brought downfall to Shu by influencing Liu Shan, Liu Bei's SuckSessor.
** Cen Hun was stated to be the 'Huang Hao' for Wu's last emperor Sun Hao, although this is novel-exclusive.

* VeryLooselyBasedOnATrueStory: One early editor referred to it as 70% fact and 30% fiction, which is a generous estimation: Luo Guanzhong's sources included not only historical records, but period Chinese operas, poetry and folktales as well. Some of the most memorable scenes in the book never really happened; ThatOtherWiki has [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_fictitious_stories_in_Romance_of_the_Three_Kingdoms a list]].

* BladeOnAStick: TONS of warriors in the book are decked with such weapons. From the average spears and halberds (the mainstay battlefield equipment of the time) of your average {{Mooks}}, to those big fancy pole-blades used by generals (Zhang Fei's spear with a snake-shaped blade, [[{{Badass}} Lu Bu]]'s halberd, and Xu Huang's [[AnAxeToGrind battle-axe]] to name a few) used by the author as a symbol of each character's personalities and as [[RuleOfCool making action scenes appear more flashy]] to the readers, since most of those weapons didn't even exist at the time. But among these, the most famous would be Guan Yu's "[[NamedWeapon Green Dragon Crescent Blade]]". He's the reason why the Chinese glaive is called the "Guan Dao".

* GoodHairEvilHair: Guan Yu's beard was reputedly ''fabulous'' to the point where Cao Cao gave him a beard bag. Oh, and when confronted by bandits, his taking off the bag caused them to promptly surrender and their leaders to beg to join him -- albeit this was probably also because they recognized him for the BadAss that he was.
