* Batman Gambit: Basically all of Mei Changsu's strategies are this. He is extremely good at predicting how others will react to events.

to:

* Batman Gambit: BatmanGambit: Basically all of Mei Changsu's strategies are this. He is extremely good at predicting how others will react to events.




to:

* BashBrothers: With Jingyan in their youth.
* BecauseImGoodAtIt: One of Lin Shu's justifications for taking on the role of the political manipulator
* BlatantLies: When Lin Shu tells Nihuang [[spoiler: he has 10 years left to live and any other time Lin Shu says he'll hang around with Jingyan in the future even in the very last episode, dammit.]]
* BlueOniRedOni: The highly intellectual and manipulative Mei Changsu plays blue oni to the red oni that is the emotionally driven Prince Jingyan.
* CapturedOnPurpose: Lin Shu walks right into the Xuanjing Bureau and Xia Jiang's hands in super slow motion and looking totally bad-ass.
**Xia Jiang even told the emperor he wanted to move fast so Mei Changsu wouldn't know he was coming and be able to plan for it. When he arrives at the Su residence though, MCS meets him at the entrance completely unruffled.
* CassandraTruth: Lin Shu admits he's a member of Prince Qi's household to Xia Jiang partly so that he will sound even crazier and discredit himself when he reports it to the emperor. Lin Shu even explains away Xia Jiang's claim to Jingyan by saying he ''lied'' about his identity for this very effect.
* TheChessmaster: Mei Changsu is a master of manipulating others, predicting their actions and reactions, and thinking steps ahead of them. [[spoiler: During the confrontation in Xie Manor, he sends Fei Liu to sabotage the armory so Xie Yu's guards are unable to fire on his guests with crossbows.]]
**He even has wooden tiles for each one of his enemies that he burns upon 'removing' them from the board.
* TheChosenOne: "To have the Divine Talent is to have the World." [[spoiler: Possibly subverted in that Lin Chen is Mei Changsu's best friend and this "prophecy" was likely given out as part of his master plan. Doubly subverted when you consider that Langya Hall's "prophecies" are actually just statements of fact derived from carefully compiled information. Essentially, Mei Changsu chose himself.]]
* ChronicHeroSyndrome: Lin Shu just can't seem to stop trying to help his friends and uphold his duty, even when he's literally dying from pushing himself too hard.
* CrazyPrepared: Lin Shu's ability to foresee and plan for every possible outcome is the quality that makes him the ultimate Divine Talent. See The Chosen One
* EmptyPromise: regarding his health and life expectancy. [[spoiler: Any time Mei Changsu promises anyone anything regarding the future. See his promise to stay by Jingyan's side and watch him become emperor or his promise never to leave Nihuang again.]]
* FlashbackNightmare: The first scene of the series shows the bloody massacre of an army and the young Lin Shu's dying father urging him to survive just before he falls off a cliff... and our adult hero [[CatapultNightmare catapults awake, panting in his bed]].
* IllBoy: Mei Changsu is a sympathetic and near perfect character who certainly manages to look very pretty even when he's turning deathly pale and coughing up blood. Thankfully he's also a very layered and nuanced character who avoids the more annoying Marty Stu versions of this trope.
* IncorruptiblePurePureness: After 12 years playing shadowy manipulator, a lot of people would have lost sight of their original goals. Granted, being on the verge of death tends to give people a sense of priority.
* InsufferableGenius
* MultilayerFacade: When he first comes to the capital, Mei Changsu introduces himself as "Sir Su" a mere visiting scholar. When his enemies get suspicious, they do a background check and discover his "real" identity, the powerful leader of the Jiang Zuo Alliance. This prevents them from thinking to dig deeper and discover his actual {{Secret Identity}} Lin Shu.
* ReportsOfMyDeathWereGreatlyExaggerated
* SarcasticConfession: When he's cornered by Consort Yue and Xia Jiang's attempt to reveal his true identity, Lin Shu straight up ''admits'' it to the emperor's face. [[spoiler:But then he follows up by saying even if he admits it it doesn't prove anything and uses enough Word Fu to convince the emperor to dismiss Xia Jiang entirely.]] That is talent. [[spoiler:Although, admittedly it doesn't prevent the emperor from trying to kill him anyway... See MurderistheBestSolution.]]
* StarCrossedLovers: Nihuang and Lin Shu have loved each other their whole lives [[spoiler: but are fated never to be together in this life.]]
* StartingANewLife: Lin Shu's new life as Mei Changsu.
* UnsportsmanlikeGloating: Mei Changsu uncharacteristically gives in to a little gloating the last time he sees Xia Jiang in prison. "You're just here to gloat this time aren't you?" "Yes. I've seen you play all your best cards and end up back in prison anyway. It makes me happy." So. Satisfying.
* YourDaysAreNumbered: Mei Changsu is driven to reach his goal as quickly as possible because of his limited time left to live.

* AmbitionIsEvil: Jingyan seeks power for altruistic reasons and [[spoiler: is ultimately able to become Emperor.]] while The Crown Prince and Prince Yu [[spoiler:are ultimately defeated by the consequences of their own unscrupulous greed for power.]]
*ArrangedMarriage: When Princess Nian Nian arrives in Da Liang to be married to one of the princes, Jingyan is a candidate having only one concubine. [[spoiler: She end's up engaged to Jingting]]
* BashBrothers: With Lin Shu in their youth.
* BlueOniRedOni: The highly intellectual and manipulative Mei Changsu plays blue oni to the red oni that is the emotionally driven Prince Jingyan.
* HonorBeforeReason: Jingyan's default setting. Mei Changsu tries his best to make him behave more strategically, but [[spoiler:has to give in when Jingyan refuses to leave Wei Zheng in prison to be executed, even though breaking him out is an extremely dangerous move that will potentially waste all of Jingyan's political gains so far.]]
* IncorruptiblePurePureness: The reason many support Jingyan to become emperor. [[spoiler: Prince Yu even points this out when Jingyan is sent to handle disaster relief, wondering how Jingyan can resist skimming off the relief funds.]]
* LockedOutOfTheLoop: Mei Changsu won't let anyone tell Jingyan who he really is because he knows his best friend will be too worried about him to treat him as a mere strategist and follow his plans without question. [[spoiler: By the time Jingyan finds out, it feels like everyone knows but him, including his mother.]]
* PullingTheThread: Jingyan attempts to do this when he asks both his mother and Mei Changsu what his father's name was without giving them time to consult each other.[[spoiler: Unfortunately for him, Mei Changsu's cover is too well planned- they both give the same name, the one Lin Shu's real father used as an alias.]]
* ScrewTheRulesImDoingWhatsRight: When Jingyan insists on breaking the falsely accused Wei Zheng out of prison.
* SpottingTheThread:
** Jingyan notes Mei Changsu's habit of rubbing at things when he's thinking- just like this one guy he used to know...
** Lin Shu accidentally draws Jingyan's sword and uses it to point out troop movements, unconsciously repeating a familiar gesture which Jingyan recognizes
[[/folder]]

* TheChessmaster: Consort Jing may be even more of a Chessmaster than Mei Changsu. [[spoiler: She tampers with the Emperor's medicine to induce insomnia, restlessness, and hallucinations, which all contributed to him having nightmares which she then convinced the Emperor is caused by restless ghosts and can only be resolved by setting up a memorial plaque.]]
* SilkHidingSteel: Empress Yan compares her to a cotton ball because she absorbs everything thrown at her until she turns it all against you.
* SpottingTheThread:
** Consort Jing discovers Mei Changsu's true identity after finding a veiled reference to his mother's name in a book he wrote notes in
**She also realizes her maid was part of the enemy's plot to cause mistrust between Jingyan and Mei Changsu when the maid makes sure to tell the story of Mei Changsu's supposed capture of her to the prince. They couldn't leave such a crucial part of the plot (making sure Jingyan heard the story told their way) to some unrelated person.

**[[spoiler: Subverted by the fact that, being the son of the late Crown Prince Qi, Tingsheng would have been third in line for the throne upon his birth had his father not been declared a traitor. Had Prince Qi become emperor, Tingsheng would have been Crown Prince. Technically, the Crown Prince, Prince Yu, and Prince Jing are all after him in a direct line of succession.]]

->'''Played by:''' Tao Liu and Xiaoyang Pan (young)

*ActionGirl: General of the military in Yunnan guarding the border with Southern Chu.
* AndNowYouMustMarryMe: A decidedly non-G rated version.
** [[spoiler:The Crown Prince and his mother Consort Yue attempt this with Nihuang so that she is forced to marry one of her potential suitors, that is loyal to them, and have her military and political influnce serving their faction. Thankfully it stops at {{Attempted Rape}}.]]
* EngagementChallenge: The tournament set up for Nihuang's suitors. The top ten have to pass the final challenge- beating Nihuang herself. This effectively gives Nihuang {{Child Marriage Veto}} powers.
* LadyOfWar: Nihuang has protected the southern border from invasion as the general of the southern fortress for years and she's so awesome at martial arts than none of the skilled warriors from all around China that come to compete as her potential suitors are able to beat her in a one on one duel.
* StarCrossedLovers: Nihuang and Lin Shu have loved each other their whole lives [[spoiler: but are fated never to be together in this life.]]

[[folder:Xiao Jingrui]]
->'''Played by:''' Haofeng Cheng
* BreakTheCutie: When all truths are revealed, Jingrui is left a little worse for wear.
* FamilyDisunion: Jingrui's disaster of a birthday party. You know it's a failed family get together when [[spoiler:you find out neither of your "fathers" is actually related to you, one of them was trying to kill you all along, and he's decided to finish the job now, along with the rest of your family and all the guests who now know too much.]] Ouch.
* FamilyRelationshipSwitcheroo: Jingrui has two surnames. His mother gave birth on the same night as her friend at the temple they were staying at. That same night they were attacked and the two baby boys were mixed up in the darkness and confusion, making it impossible to tell which baby belonged to which mother. When one of the babies died after a few days, things became even more complicated. With no way to decide which family the baby belonged to, the emperor declared that he should belong to both of them and be given both their surnames. [[spoiler: However the real switcheroo is that Jingrui's real mother Princess Liyang was pregnant with her lover's baby and then was forced to marry Marquis Xie. She realized her husband was trying to kill her illegitimate son but had actually killed her friend's baby by accident. She perpetuated the confusion with the Zhuo family in order to protect Jingrui from the Marquis. Jingrui finds out his true parentage at his birthday party.]]

*SilkHidingSteel: Liyang comes off as very quiet and accepting of everything that has happened to her, including [[spoiler: being separated from her lover,]] [[spoiler: being [[ButLiquorIsQuicker drugged and raped]] and then [[AndNowYouMustMarryMe having to marry her rapist,]]]] and [[spoiler: having said husband hire an assassin to murder her lover's child after she gave birth.]] However, not only does she manage to [[spoiler: protect her son]] and does her best to protect Nihuang from [[spoiler: a similar marriage plot,]] Liyang proves herself far from a wilting flower in episode 21 when [[spoiler: she [[StopOrIShootMyself holds a knife to her own throat]] to get Xie Yu to allow Prince Yu's guard's into the manor. The fact that her husband of 20 years complies says a lot about whether she's bluffing]]
