* 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, or (at best) could not have happened as described; ThatOtherWiki has [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_fictitious_stories_in_Romance_of_the_Three_Kingdoms a list]].

* 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.
