Art Evolution: As new Dynasty Warriors games and designs come out, the character designs have been changed; starting with Dynasty Warriors 6 and Pang Tong's introduction a number of strips have overtly involved the characters noticing (or in Zhuge Liang's case, not noticing until it's too late) the change.
Bread, Eggs, Milk, Squick: Ma Chao in his debut. Drags enemy around with his horse, beating the formerly Lu Bu-beating Mother Dong (She's terminally ill), and can dance on a dress.
Butt Monkey: Cao Ren, with his Catch Phrase "Let me goooo.... I'm still virgin.....". Also Zhang Liao being the unwilling subject of love interest of Guan Yu, and Little Ping just about any time Zhuge Liang and Yue Ying get frisky.
Oda Nobunaga from Samurai Warriors (also Sanada Yukimura) is slowly turning into one. Justified that Peng himself didn't think the Sengoku era is convertable into a funny comic, so this is all he can do for the franchise.
The Cameo: Kaku Bunwa from Ikkitousen replaces her namesake character (Jia Xu) in this comic, even though he technically appeared during Dian Wei's last stand. Still unknown whether it will clash with the new DW7 design of Jia Xu.
Funny Foreigner: Subverted: Sun Quan is 100% Chinese, but his exotic look makes him thought to be a foreigner and it has been his Running Gag.
Heavy Sleeper: As it seems, LuMeng has been sleeping during all of Zhou Yu's funeral... standing upright.
Hope Spot: Guan Yu is about to kill Diao Chan. As she begs for her life, Guan Yu was reminded that she's the girl who asked if he's a basketball player in his debut strip, so he leaves the scene... only to call the blacksmith that created his weapon to do the dirty job.
Again with Gan Ning, which involves breaking his back for selling bootlegged copies of Brokeback Mountain.
Inexplicably Identical Individuals: Liu Bei mistakes LuFan, a Wu strategist, for LuBu, despite that the latter is dead since a few years and that the two of them are not being related outside of their identical family names.
Love Triangle: Type 5 between Zhou Yu, Guan Yu and Zhang Liao. Zhou Yu is gay for Guan Yu despite him being completely oblivious about it. Guan Yu wants Zhang Liao who then would want to go so far as killing himself to get away from him.
Mukokuseki: Lampshaded in the case of Sun Quan and Yue Ying.
Any reference to the Yellow Turbans regularly gets comparisons to the Falun Gong.
Shout-Out: Zhuge Liang can turn into Kenshiro at whim, though most of the time it's not doing any good. Also, Huang Zhong recently uses Dio's signature "MUDAMUDAMUDAMUDAMUDAMUDAMUDA!!" and WRRRYYYYYY!!!!
Uncanny Family Resemblance: Many characters who is known to be a family member of a character who appeared in Dynasty Warriors at the time of the creation of the strip and never appeared or appeared as a generic officer, will look like a clone of the character.
Visual Pun: when Ma Chao debuts and the much-loved Five Tiger Generalsnote Ma joins Huang Zhong, Zhao Yun, Zhang Fei and Guan Yu as Shu's legendary generals are unofficially complete. For context, the first frames are intended as Foreshadowing, but rather than the Five Tiger Generals thing it's about five actual tigers escaping from the zoo ie. the Five Tigers have been unleashed.
Yank the Dog's Chain: Guan Yu almost kills Diao Chan, but gets reminded that she's the innocent girl who asked him if he was a basketball player early in the comic, thus he doesn't go through with the plan... only to call the blacksmith who crafted his weapon to do the killing.
Your Mom: Subverted, Xu Shu wanted a way out of the fire attack at Chibi. Pang Tong suggests his presumed dead mother. Understandably, Xu Shu is angry until his mother calls him...
All right, that's the end of the page. Enjoy the indexes.
