** Cao Cao gave Dong Cheng, a prominent and loyalist courtier, a ReasonYouSuckSpeech to which basically "Corrupt vassals seek power for themselves. So loyal vassals must seek power to protect their lord." aka criticizing Dong Cheng's passive courtier attitude. Take a guess one of conspirators who try undermine Cao's position at capital at Guandu Arc.

** Xiahou Dun and Xiahou Yuan (and their squad) have been thrashed rather consistently to establish how BadAss Cao Cao's various enemies are, though Dun at least would recover somewhat as a "tunnel rat" during the Battle of Guandu.

* BadAss: [[WorldOfBadass Pretty much every main character]].
** BackToBackBadasses:
*** Liaoyuan Huo and Lu Bu teamed up to kill Dong Zhuo, who was one step ahead and ambushed them with a sizable force plus two skilled assassins from Xiliang. By the time reinforcements arrive, all the ambushers are dead.
*** Liaoyun Huo and Sun Ce faced off an entire army back to back. [[spoiler:Or rather, Liaoyuan Huo and 'Sun Ce', a.k.a. Ling Cao]].
*** Gan Ning and Huang Zhong against about 5 very ''pissed off'' elite generals of Sun clan. And [[CoolOldGuy Huang]] [[BadassGrandpa Zhong]] [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome gets them both out of it with some helps from the sideline and the spirit of camaraderie]].
** BadassArmy: The series feature various groups of elite troops that are a cut above the rest.
*** Cao Cao's troops are so badass that a couple thousands of them managed to beat Li Jue's tens of thousands through DivideAndConquer.
*** Gao Shun's elite troops defeated Xiahou Dun, drove off Xiahou Yuan for second helping, and then proceed to attack Cao Cao's main camp during the battle of Xuzhou.
** BadassAndBaby: Liaoyuan Huo fighting Cao Cao's forces while protecting Liu Bei's infant son.
** BadassBeard: Guan Yu, given his fame in RoTK, but really he holds no candle to [[http://www.mangareader.net/336-31553-12/the-ravages-of-time/chapter-282.html Huang Zhong]].
** BadassBoast: Zhang Liao - "No one has ever passed the range of my swords".
*** Avert with several minor characters (Ji Ling) who got chopped off immediately after. If you are minor character and said (or being praised) like "I'm better than Lu Bu." or "He's a heavenly warrior.", prepare to be dissected in three pages.
** BadassCape
** BadassGrandpa: Several characters, but most notably Cheng Pu and the two Huangs: Gai and Zhong
** BadassFamily: The Cao clan and Sun clan.
** BadassInCharge: Lu Bu, Sun Ce, Liaoyuan Huo, Zhang Liao,..
** BreakTheBadass: Lu Bu and Sun Ce, who invoke this against almost every badass they meet.
** FourStarBadass

* FemmeFatale: Xiao Meng in his [[spoiler:Diao Chan]] disguise. And lately, we're introduced to Lady Fan, who has made an impressive career out of being this.



* GambitPileup: Happens in almost every major arc. Usually, the case is: a warlord sets up {{plan}} to fulfill his agenda, which happens to clash with another warlord's {{plan}} pursuing a different goal because hey, the world is a small place for a series full of [[TheChessmaster chessmasters]]. And let's not count the third parties, who want to see them up against each other to gain some benefits from it, and utilize other {{plan}}(s) of their own.
