    At the time of me writing this FAQ, I only have the Japanese version 
    of the game(Shin Sangoku Musou 4) and my Japanese is very poor, so I
    may have some trouble with names and such. Other FAQs I've written
    for GameFAQ's are also based on characters from the game 
    Shin Sangoku Musou 4/Dynasty Warriors 5 and they are
    Guan Ping
    Ling Tong
    Ma Chao
    Pang Tong
    Lu Bu
    Zhao Yun
    This FAQ is being written based on my experiences 
    playing the game Dynasty Warriors 5/Shin Sangoku Musou 4, 
    playing as the character Xiahou Yuan. Through out this FAQ Ill 
    cover thing such as his, move set, musou mode stages, weapons, 
    models ect.

    3-Xiahou Yuan character bio
    Brother of Xiahou Dun and cousin of Cao Cao. he was with Cao Cao from 
    the very start from his army, serving in many battles, from Huo Lao to 
    Xia Pi and beyond. he was a master archer and was know to strike quickly 
    and favor the ambush stragiety. Xiahou Yuan and Zhang He were sent to 
    Mt. Jing Dun to defend it from Liu Bei's attack. Zhang He was injured at 
    a smaller, but key mountain and Huang Zhong charged at the main camp. 
    it is unsure who, but a Shu Officer lured Xiahou Yuan out and Huang 
    Zhong killed him.
    4-Why Should I use Xiahou Yuan?
    Xiahou Yuan is an average character all around, with stats that never
    really grow to high.  But he's got a fun moveset (I love beating people 
    with the club) and he's pretty good with his bow and arrows (he has an
    awesome T1) Xiahou Yuan in th right hands can become an awesome warrior.
    Xiahou Yuan is unlocked by beating Xiahou Dunn's musou mode.

    Requirements for Obtaining Xiahou Yuan's 4th
    Stage- Battle of Chi Bi
    Requirement- Prevent all parts of the fire attack.
    Secondary Note- I got the weapon even though Huang Gai started the fire. 
    I killed Pang Tong and Zhuge Liang in time, but kill Huang Gai after I 
    failed to stop him and still got the weapon.
    Strategy-  It's a pretty simple weapon, but you do need to be quick.  I'd
    make sure to have Xiahou Yuan worked up moderately, Chi Bi is only a two
    star battle for Wei, but you need to kill pretty fast.
    Anyway, Xiahou Yuan should start right next to Pang Tong, though he'll be 
    your ally at the start.  Follow him right when the stage starts, after he
    saids a few words, he'll defect.  Kill him and rush down to Zhuge Liang (don't
    worry about killng anything on the way) Kill him.  Now if Huang Gai hasn't 
    already appered, head over to Zhou Tai (that's around where he'll show up) 
    and wait for him.  Once he arrives kill him, and your done. The Precious Item 
    report should show up near where Zhuge Liang was.  Get it and finshes the stage
    as normal.
    a saddle really comes in handy here, since Xiahou Yuan isn't the 
    fastest guy, and he has to cover alot of ground.  Also make sure 
    you're playing on hard.
    8-Musou Mode
    Xiahou Yuan has 5 stages in his musou mode, The 5 stages are
    1-Battle of Xia Pi
    2-Battle of Guan Du
    3-Battle of Chi Bi 
    4-Battle of Tong Gate 
    5-Battle of Mount Ding Jun
    As soon as I get the US release of this game and can better read
    what's going on in the battles, I'll update with some stage strategies.
    9-Xiahou Yuan's models

    Q: The requirement for obtaining Xiahou Yuan's 4th  lvl weapon isn't working?
    A: Make sure your playing on hard, and make sure you stop all three part of the
    fire attack, by kill Pang Tong (he'll be an ally at first) Zhuge Liang and Huang
    Q: Do you have to have played Xiahou Yuan's Musou mode and got his 2nd and 3rd
    weapon before you get his 4th?
    A: No, I have got many 4th weapons the first time I played the character.
    Q: What's the best stage to get high level items?
    A: I've been able to get 15-20 level items on any 4-5 star stage on hard mode
    or Shura/Expert Mode.  The higer the diffuculty the better chance for a high
    level item. Also using a good Seven star sash (luck+) and a character with a
    high luck+ on his weapon ups the chances for a good item.
    Q: What will you except for your FAQ? And how will I know what I e-mailed you
    will get added?
    A: E-mail me anything, you'll know weather or not I'm going to add it if you get
    an e-mail back.  If you don't get an e-mail back, I either didn't what to add it
    or am already working on it myself.
