"The Despot of Debauchery"
"All that oppose me shall be put to death!"
Died: May 22, 192
Japanese spelling: Toutaku
Height: 6'0" (183cm)
Dong Zhuo is the Prime Minister to the throne during the late Han dynasty. He was seen as a ruthless tyrant and he used the Han Emperor as a puppet in order to do what he willed. Dong Zhuo enforced his rule by having control of the mightiest man of the time, Lu Bu.
Portrayed as a repulsive and obese man, he often lets his lust and hedonistic pursuits get the better of him. This is what ultimately drives a wedge between him and his adopted son Lu Bu.
"The Fiend of War"
"There is nobody in this land that can stop me!"
Died: February 7, 199
Japanese spelling: Ryofu
Height: 6'10" (208cm)
Lu Bu is one of the most feared warriors in the Three Kingdoms period. He was brought up by his adoptive father, Ding Yuan, whom he betrayed for the infamous horse Red Hare and an ample amount of gold. When he joined the ranks of Dong Zhuo he performed many extraordinary tasks, such as fighting Liu Bei, Guan Yu, and Zhang Fei all at the same time.
But also while under the tyrant, he fell in love with the beautiful Diaochan, who was then given to Dong Zhuo. So to get the mistress, he killed Dong Zhuo. This was all a plan conceived by Diaochan's adoptive father Wang Yun to rid China of Dong Zhuo. Lu Bu then went off on his own; fighting mostly Cao Cao. In 198 AD he was betrayed by his own men, and executed by Cao Cao.
"The Deceptive Dancer"
"I am here to bring light to this benighted land."
Japanese spelling: Chousen
Height: 5'6" (168cm)
Diaochan is a dancing maiden who wants to destroy Dong Zhuo, on request by her adopted father. She is willing to use all of her available talents to see the despot is disposed of.
She is an elegant and patient woman who displays cunning with her charms. Normally a kind and benevolent individual, she can show a manipulative side if the occasion calls for it. She does not enjoy violence yet finds that battle is inevitable in the times she lives in.
Although she despises Dong Zhuo, her feelings on Lu Bu are far more complicated.

- All Girls Want Bad Boys - Sometimes with Lu Bu and NEVER with Dong Zhuo.
- Beware the Nice Ones - Whoa nelly.
- Daddy's Girl - Her motivations in DW6 are based on her adoptive father's last wish.
- Dance Battler
- Depending on the Writer - Whether she truly loves Lu Bu, or is just using him to fulfill her father's wish. Lately though, it's the former.
- Drop the Hammer - Prior to DW6, Diaochan fought with a pair of maces. Future releases stick her with...
- Honey Trap - She sows mistrust between Dong Zhuo and Lu Bu.

- Huge Guy, Tiny Girl - With both Lu Bu and Dong Zhuo.
- Love at First Sight - Both Lu Bu and Dong Zhuo fall in love with her the first time they see her. Any man that sees her also seems to fall in love with her.
- Manipulative Bitch - In DW6, though not so much of a bitch.
- Morality Pet - To Lu Bu
- Ms. Fanservice - The title World's Most Beautiful Woman could justify this, but game by game, Diaochan's costume and appearance gets more and more fanservicey. Ironically, she was a lot more wholesome in her earlier designs.
- Petal Power - Her Musou, Charge, and EX attacks in 7.
- Reluctant Warrior - On a good day.
- The Starscream - In DW6: Empires, if you decide to ascend the throne as a ruler and add her into your ranks, she will turn against you and take the majority of your officers with her.
- Stripperiffic - In DW6 and 7. Even more so in Strikeforce.
- In her awakening form in Strikeforce, she even doesn't have any strips at all.
- 8 is less so than Strikeforce, but she gets even more Stripperiffic.
- Token Good Teammate - She counts as this in both the Dynasty Warriors and Warriors Orochi series.
- World's Most Beautiful Woman - Noted as one of the Four Great Beauties of China. In her third DW7 Legend stage she fights to prove she is the most beautiful woman in China and faces off against a randomly generated group of other DW7 female characters. Her final opponent is always the same though. And who does she beat to claim the beauty crown? Zhang He...
