    A young songstress unequaled in beauty as well as song and dance. Raised by
    Wang Yun as his own daughter. For the sake of Wang, who is fearful of Dong
    Zhuo and Lu bu, she gets close to both of them, and succeeds in tearing their
    relationship apart, with Lu Bu later killing Dong Zhou.

    In the original Dynasty Warriors 3, you must defeat her in battle at Hu Lao
    Gate. In Dynasty Warriors 3: Xtreme Legends it is only slightly easier. What
    you have to do is put the Dynasty Warriors 3: Xtreme Legends into your Sony
    Playstation 2 and turn the console on. Voila! Diao Chan is now a playable
    character.

    The Battle at Hu Lao Gate
    
    Introduction: The Yellow Turban Rebellion had been quelled through the valiant
    efforts of the Imperial Army, but the land still remains in chaos. It is here
    that the savior Dong Zhuo arrives from Xi Liang, and brings order back to the
    land.
    
    After his heroic rescue of the young Han Emporer, Dong Zhuo entered the
    capital of Luo Yang and was given full responsibility over military affairs.
    Furthermore, Dong Zhuo enlisted the mighty Lu Bu into his service, and soon
    gained tremendous political influence through awesome military power.
    
    Regional leaders were extremely jealous of Dong Zhuo's accomplishments, and
    when Cao Cao called upon them to take up arms and remove Dong Zhuo from power,
    they immediately responded. It was here the Anti-Dong Zhuo Coalition Army was
    formed, with Yuan Shao serving as supreme commander.
    
    In the year 191, the Anti-Dong Zhuo Alliance marched on Luo Yang. Dong Zhuo,
    seeking to vanquish those who would stand against him, stationed himself at
    the indomitable Hu Lao Gate. Within the ranks, the figures of Lu Bu and Diao
    Chan could also be seen.
    
    Victory Conditions: Yuan Shao, Cao Cao, Sun Jian, and Liu Bei are defeated
    Defeat Conditions: Dong Zhuo is killed
    
    Diao Chan's first stage is quite an easy one. You have an extremely good
    fighter taking care of the loose ends you leave. Lu Bu will clean up shop if
    you run into a jam. You start out in the southeast. Sun Jian is the closest
    Commander to you. It is a good idea to take out Cheng Pu, Han Dang, and Sun
    Jian before they have a chance to make trouble for Dong Zhuo. After that you
    should go northeast to Si Shui Gate and take out Gongsun Zan, Guan Yu, Zhang
    Fei, and Liu bei. Ok, two commanders down, two to go. Next I recommomend
    heading west and taking out Yuan Shao. Now you have a choice to make. You can
    whip around east and take out Yuan Shu or you can go straight for Cao Cao and
    finish the level. If you do go for Yuan Shu then you are going to have to
    either abandon your horse when you are done to go for Cao Cao atop the Fan
    Shui Gate or ride all the way back to where Yuan Shau was waiting and take the
    east route at the fork as opposed to the left which took you to Yuan Shu. Cao
    Cao has the most subgenerals (Xiahou Dun, Cao Ren, and Cao Hong) and is one of
    the hardest enemies in the game in later stages, as he is probably the best
    playable character in Dynasty Warriors 3. Note: This in not merely my opinion,
    his skills and moveset are great in this game, much more so than in Dynasty
    Warriors 4 and 5. But on the first stage he should be cake. Once you have
    successfully defeated Lord Mengde (that's Cao Cao) then victory is yours.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    The Battle at Guan Du
    
    Introduction: The battle of Hu Lao Gate ends in victory for Dong Zhuo, thanks
    to his leadership and to the tremendous efforts of Lu Bu and Diao chan. Having
    lost their leader Yuan Shao, the Anti-Dong Zhuo Alliance crumbles, and its
    members return to their territories in defeat.
    
    After Yuan Shao's death, Cao Cao seizes control of his former territories in
    the He Bei region and gains tremendous power in the North. Still determined to
    wrest political power from Dong Zhuo, Cao Cao begins a campaign south and
    marches with his army toward Luo Yang at a furious pace.
    
    In the year 200, Dong Zhuo camps his army at Guan Du to confront Cao Cao's
    army that has crossed the Huang River. Dong Zhuo will now have to match his
    intellect against Cao Cao's in a battle for control of thr Central Plains.
    
    Victory Conditions: Cao Cao is defeated
    Defeat Conditions: Dong Zhuo is killed
    
    Diao Chan starts inside of Guan Du Castle in this stage. Your goal is to
    defeat Cao Cao and make sure Dong Zhuo is not discovered and killed. The best
    way to do this is to take out all of the generals on the stage. Dong Zhuo is
    hidden in one of the small boxes on the screen. It is random, so it will be
    different every time you play the stage. But you do not really have to worry
    about that too much when you are on Dong Zhuo's side. Zhang He will be one of
    your biggest threats, as he tends to search for Dong Zhuo quickly. It would be
    wise to wipe him out quickly. In time, seige towers will appear at the North
    and east walls of Guan Du Castle. If you wait long enough the enemy will 
    breech the castle walls and start looking for Dong Zhuo in the outposts. If
    this happens you are either taking too long or you are going for score.
    (which I would never blame anyone for, remember 1415 KOs give you 9999 points)
    When you are ready to finish the stage go up to the northwest part of the
    screen and finish of the Lord of Chaos.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    The Battle at He Fei
    
    Introduction: Dong Zhuo has occupied most of Northern China. It seems he has
    solidified his position in the seat of power, but a new threat is growing in
    the South: Sun Ce, 'The Little Conquerer' of the South.
    
    Blinded by ambition, Sun Ce brazenly marches north with his troops to face
    Dong Zhuo. Upon hearing the reports, Dong Zhuo concludes that this is a golden
    opportunity to defeat Sun Ce and conquer the southern territories as well.
    
    Dong Zhuo, with Lu Bu by his side, marches towards He Fei with his army. "No
    matter how strong this Sun Ce may be, he will be no match for Lu Bu and me..."
    is what Dong Zhuo thinks as he anxiously prepares for battle.
    
    Victory Conditions: Sun Ce is defeated
    Defeat Conditions: Dong Zhuo is killed
    
    Well you start at the southwest part of the map, just south of the river. Your
    first order of business is to clear out that pesky central area. So head there
    via the path to the southeast of your starting position. On the way to the
    central area you will run into our nunchaku buddy, Ling Tong.(it's a Dynasty
    Warriors 5 reference, buy it, it's good) Take out Ling Tong, Cheng Pu will
    probably be pretty close to you by now. Give him a taste of mace. Once you get
    to the central area you will be in proximity of Lu Meng. Have you figured out
    what to do with him yet? Bash him into the 4th century. Then you should take
    out Xu Sheng before finally going for the Little Conquerer and ending his
    short-lived reign over Southern China.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    The Battle of Mt. Ding Jun
    
    Introduction: After the fall of Sun Ce at Hei Fe, Dong Zhuo occupies the lands
    south of the Chang Jiang River. The only enemy left for Dong Zhuo is now Liu
    Bei, who has fled into Shu. Dong Zhuo, with Lu Bu by his side, now begins a
    campaign against Liu Bei.
    
    Claiming to be of the Imperial Bloodline, Liu Bei champions the cause of the
    Restoration of the Han, and founds a large kingdom in Shu to oppose Dong Zhuo.
    With Lu Bu and Diao Chan by his side, Dong Zhuo begins his attack on Liu Bei
    by entering the Han Zhong Region.
    
    The Shu Army was camping in the natural fortress of Mount Ding Jun, with their
    commander being the famed strategist Zhuge Liang. Having only ever relied on
    brute force in battle, Dong Zhuo orders his troops to simply charge the enemy.
    
    Victory Conditions: Liu Bei is defeated
    Defeat Condition: Dong Zhuo is killed
    
    Well if you didn't figure it out by the last page of the introduction that
    Zhuge Liang has something up his sleeve then you are about as smart as Lu Bu.
    If you act really fast on this one you can eliminate Liu Bei before Dong Zhuo
    gets raped by Zhao Yun and Zhang Fei. Make your way down the side path toward
    Liu Bei. You will run into Zhuge Liang on the way, probably after Guan Yu
    attacks Liu Bei and Zhao Yun and Zhang Fei attack Dong Zhuo. So if you are
    buffed up enough to take out Zhuge Liang quickly then by all means, take him
    out. If Dong Zhuo is near death you may need to go assist him. But if you want
    to chance it, then go attack Liu Bei. Once you beat Liu Bei, the battle is won.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    The Battle at Yi Ling
    
    Introduction: Thanks to the efforts of Lu Bu and Diao Chan, Dong Zhuo is able
    to rout Liu Bei's forces. Lu Bu had come to see Diao Chan as more than a
    comrade-in-arms, and on her advice, he quickly retreats to Wu.
    
    The Shu forces immediately take advantage of Lu Bu's absence and advance into
    Jing, camping at Yi Ling along the Chang Jiang River. Meanwhile, back in Wu,
    Lu Bu has organized a large force to march on Yi Ling.
    
    Where Lu Bu went, Diao Chan always followed. Through her words, Lu Bu was
    beginning to see another enemy behind the Shu forces at Yi Ling. Diao Chan's
    plan was progressing smoothly.
    
    Victory Conditions: Liu Bei is defeated
    Defeat Conditions: Lu Bu is killed
    
    Judging by the map screen before the battle starts, this battle should be a
    piece of cak, right? Hell no. This battle is tough, especially for Diao Chan,
    who is no Ms. Universe. At least you don't have to worry too much about Lu Bu,
    who should be able to hold his own pretty well. But if you are not
    significantly buffed, this battle will prove challenging. Oh and as for there
    only being three enemy generals, if you thought that was going to be permanent
    you need to play more DW games. Reinforcements WILL join the battle. You start
    out at the top, toward the center. Go immediately for Ma Chao. Once Zhao Yun
    and Huang Quan arrive your hands start to get full. Once Wei Yan arrives your
    hands start to overflow. But if you keep your cool and bust alot of skulls you
    will make it through this battle alive. Once you have cleared the battle of
    all the minor generals, head for Liu Bei. Now in my opinion, Liu Bei is easy,
    especially in comparison to another ruler...say Cao Cao. Take him out and
    victory is yours.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    The Battle at Chi Bi
    
    Introduction: Diao Chan's true objective is to create a rift between Dong Zhuo
    and Lu Bu, and make them fight each other. But Lu Bu, discovering the truth,
    forgives Diao Chan and decides to become an independent power.
    
    Dong Zhuo was infuriated by the news of Lu Bu's revolt. This man, whom Dong
    Zhuo loved like a son, has betrayed him. After organizing an invasion force,
    Dong Zhuo personally leads his men south for an all-out attack on Lu Bu.
    
    Dong Zhuo's massive fleet covers the Chang Jiang River. in response Lu Bu
    gathers elite Wu soldiers skilled in naval combat and lies in wait at Chi Bi.
    For the two heroes, this is to be the final battle to determine supremacy over
    the land, and to capture the heart of Diao Chan.
    
    Victory Conditions: Dong Zhuo is defeated
    Defeat Conditions: Lu Bu is killed or Diao Chan is killed
    
    Well you start out at the far northwest corner. There are a bunch of Dong Zhuo
    generals you must beat. It's pretty straight forward, just wipe everyone out.
    You may even get a little something special if you take out all the enemy
    genarals and subgenerals personally. This is alot harder than you might think.
    Anyway, work your way through the level, taking out the Dong man's generals,
    and eventually take out that fat bastard, ending the battle.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Diao Chan's Escape
    
    Introduction: Dong Zhuo has finally been defeated. The pain, the suffering, the
    sacrifices... For Diao Chan, everything she had endured was for this moment.
    Soon after, Diao Chan convinces the politically inept Lu Bu to support the
    restoration of the Han Dynasty.
    
    Thus, the Han Dynasty regains its former glory. Lu Bu is stripped of his power,
    and his forces are disbanded. Wang Yun, Diao Chan's father and mastermind
    behind the fall of Dong Zhuo, has passed away, and Diao Chan no longer has a
    home to return to.
    
    Diao Chan decides that she must part with Lu Bu. After quietly departing the
    Capital, she begins to travel west alone. But a figure can be seen in the
    distance, furiously pursuing Diao Chan, This figure is none other than Lu Bu.
    
    Victory Conditions: Diao Chan breaks through the five gates
    Defeat Conditions: Diao Chan is killed
    
    Warning: Be buffed for this battle. It is not easy. With that out of the way,
    let's get started. You start of at the bottom of the map, and you have to work
    your way north. Don't expect time to get used to the scenery(you should have
    done that in Dynasty Warriors 3 with Guan Yu's Escape) because you are thrown
    right into battle as soon as you begin. Take out Wei Xu and the first gate will
    open. BAM! Curveball. The remaining Wu forces are pissed and are gonna try to
    hinder your passage. Make sure that the key word is TRY and wipe the floor with
    them. Once you take out Lu Meng and Taishi Ci, the second gate will open. Well
    now you get to fight Xiahou Dun and Zhang He. Xiahou Dun doesn't like the fact
    that you killed his cousin Cao Cao, and Zhang He doesn't like the fact that
    such a beautiful person is gone from the world. Make sure you watch the pre-
    battle dialogue, as it is quite funny. I can't really tell which of the two
    is more lady-like. Anyway, of the Wei remnants, and the third gate will open.
    Now, if you can't figure out what's gonna happen next, you need to stop
    smoking whatever it is you are smoking. Huang Zhong and Zhao Yun are your next
    opponents. They are pretty pissed at you for getting rid of their "virtuous"
    leader.(Don't even get me started on Liu Bei) Shorten their lives, and the
    fourth gate will open and you get to fight one of the most noble generals in
    this game, Zhang Liao. Just take care of him and the other officer. Now, it
    doesn't take a rocket surgeon to figure out who your last opponent will be.
    But in case you want a rocket surgeon's opinion, it will be Lu Bu. He is no
    easy final opponent. It's not my style, but if you aren't all that skilled, I
    recommend blocking alot. Musou is your friend as well. Once you defeat Lu Bu,
    run to the exit at the top of the screen and pass through the last gate. Now
    you will escape, successfully ending Diao Chan's Musou Mode. Congrats. Give
    yourself a pat on the back. Only a small one though if you didn't play on Hard.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Obtaining Fourth Weapon (Must Have Original Dynasty Warriors 3)
    
    Battle of Hu Lao Gate
    Dong Zhuo's Forces
    
    Defeat Yuan Shu. It's just that easy. The Special Item will be discovered just
    to the west of the Fan Shui Gate.
    
    
    Obtaining Fifth Weapon
    
    Diao Chan's Escape
    Diao Chan's Forces
    
    Defeat Lu Bu. This is alot harder than obtaining the fourth weapon. You are
    seriously pressed for time. By the time you start fighting Lu Bu you are gonna
    be nearly out of time. Not to mention that on Very Hard you are going to be
    fighting for your life, even if Diao Chan is maxxed out.(This is why I love
    Dynasty Warriors 3: Xtreme Legends. It is the hardest of them all.) Give it
    your best shot. I honestly can't remember my strategy for getting it, but
    perhaps in the future I will play it again and update my method.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Costumes <COS>
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Diao Chan's First costume is her standard costume. It is a white suit with pink
    stuff around her waist.(I don't know the names for this stuff. Ask someone who
    knows about ancient women's clothing.)She has flowers in her hair and white
    heels... or dance shoes. I can't really tell. She has pink hose on.
    
    Diao Chan's second costume is exactly the same as the first, except the things
    that were pink are now purple.
