- Complete Monster: Sima Yi is an manipulative observer angel who helps to facilitate the Dream Battle, while secretly desiring to enter the battle himself so he can claim the Imperial Seal, kill his fellow Angels, and become ruler of the human world. In pursuit of this goal, Sima Yi backed the experiments of Zhang Jue, which involved forcing humans to become Dark Warlords, and disposes of him when he is no longer of use. Sima Yi then corrupts his Warlord Cao Cao so he can possess him to enter the Dream Battle and attempts to kill his surrogate younger sister Diaochan when Cao Cao begins to resist his control. After being driven out of Cao Cao's body, Sima Yi attempts to destroy the world out of spite for not being able to rule it. A cruel and treacherous Angel, had Sima Yi become ruler of the world, he admits he would have replaced the Dream Battle with a massacre every 300 years.
- Harsher in Hindsight:
- Xu Shu's catchphrase being established in #1 when considered against her last words.
- Xu Shu leaves her first meeting with Liu Bei by dispersing into light. This is what happens after she dies.
- The Woobie:
- Iron Woobie:
- Liu Bei. Everyone he ever cared about has left him one way or another. note Then there are things like seeing people be rendered apathethic shadows of their former selves, die or just be power hungry jerks out to settle things the Evil Is Petty way. He still keeps his positive view of the world and tries to make people happy whenever the oppurtunity presents itself.
