        -I.Why should I use Sun Quan?-                         *YSQ
Well in my opinion, Sun Quan is just awesome. Another reason is that
he one of the sword fighters that doesn't totally suck. Yes you will
probably need to equip the Wind Scroll, most sword fighters do not
have that great of a crowd clearing feat. But I love the guy. His hat
from Dynasty Warriors 4 is awesome! I mean just look at it! He is
suprisingly fast for a man with a dress. His damage is pretty nice
to start off with too, even though items can dramaticaly change his
stats, I think he is a well balanced character. If your favorite
type of fighter is one that can kill a multitude of people at one
time, with one swipe, I warn you do not use Sun Quan. He is more
toward the speed player, but he can only take out a few people at
a time, even with the Wind Scroll. I think that he is a very well
created anti-officer character, his combos are deadly. He is
especialy good in duels, but then again it depends on what kind
of skill you have as a player, no offense to anyone. Everybody
has to start out somewhere!

        -II.Unlocking-                                         *UNLOCK
Unlocking Sun Quan is, well lets see how to put it... Fairly simple.
You get to start out with him! Look how easy that is! Yay!

        -III.Sun Quan's Apperance-                             *COSTUME
Sun Quan is a very oddly dressed character, but it was ok seeing as
how he was the first emperor of the Wu Dynasty. His costumes are as
follows: Costume Number followed by points needed to obtain it, and
and discription of detail, of my best ability.

          -Costume 1          0 pts (Starting)
This is a new costume for Sun Quan. He is still in a pretty fancy robe
but it has some decals on it that are tiger patterned. The rest of his
robe ranges from red and blue, and he has a little crown type hat on
his head. There is also a small black patch on the back of him. He has
a little sash type thing on his backside, and its tiger patterned. He
has some fluffy white fur around his neck.

          -Costume 2          6000 pts
This is a variation from his first costume. Instead of being red and
blue, it has turned to black. Every single decal is now gold (to my
vision). His fur also changes to tiger pattern. The black patch on 
his back has turned to red also.

          -Costume 3          20000 pts
His original costume from Dynasty Warriors 4! Yay! He got that awesome
hat back. It is extremly hard to explain but I will try. It sort of
goes out in a little cylinder a bit, then is basicly a rectangle piece
sticking off that. His dress fades from red to blue. He has gold decals
still on almost everywhere. His chest pads are red and black with gold

          -Costume 4          20000 pts
This is another one of his costumes from Dynasty Warriors 4, a 
variation of his thrid costume now. This is the little costume where
he has the "Chef Hat" deal going on. His Costume fades from red to
white now. He has some cloth pads hanging off to his side that are
now white tiger patterned. His upper body, instead of being red like
in costume three is now purple. His chest pads are now red with gold
and white.

        -IV.Fighting Style-                                    *FIGHTER
Sun Quans Fighting style is like most other sword players. He is to be 
used as a fast (attacking for he does not run all that fast) character
that does not have an overly huge crowd clearing capability. If you
favor spears and pikes more than swords, and are going to try out a
sword wielder, I do not recommend using Sun Quan. Other that that he
is just about what I said in the I.Why Should I use Sun Quan section.

========Moves                                                  *FIGHTER1

have the Square moves occur before the actual description.

Triangle (Charge):He crosses his arms and swings them forward while
stepping forward and it emits a shockwave around him, poor damage.
Square x1 Triangle:Large uppercut slash to the left
Square x2 Triangle:Series of diagonal cuts, altering right and left,
ending in a horizontal right slash and then a overhead slash down.
Square x3 Triangle:Swings sword from top to bottom left then flails
it behind him, covering his back
Square x4 Triangle:Spins around slowly, then uppercuts to the left
emiting a big shockwave in front of him only.
Square x5 Triangle:Spins around in a complete circle flailing his
sword (Best crowd buster so far).

Jump Attack (Jump and Square):He simply swings his sword downward left.
Jump Charge (Jump and Triangle):He does a mid air frontflip, and he
overhead swings his sword down and lands a few feet in front of
where he started, causing a big shockwave.

Musou (Circle):Diagonal to horizontal slash to the left and same thing
to the right alternating, ending in a strong left horizontal slash.
True Musou (Circle with life in red):Same as regular musou, except
instead of ending with a strong slash to the left, he puts his sword
straight up in the air and purple lightning flies down everywhere
around him.

========Stats                                                  *FIGHTER2
Here is the starting stats for Sun Quan, rated from 1 being the worst,
to 5 being the best, by my best accuracy.
     Health: 4
     Musou: 3
     Attack: 4
     Defense: 2
     Speed: 3
     Mounted Attack: 3
     Bow Attack: 3(Is there any difference for different people really?)

========Recommended Equipment                                  *FIGHTER3
This is a list of the equipment I recomend using on Sun Quan to
bring out his full capabilities. All of these items are important, but
can be put on in any order. Remember that you must be of a low rank in
order to equip ALL of these.

     Red Hare Harness
     Light Orb

     Wind Scroll
     Speed Scroll
     Serpent Earings
     Tortise Amulet
     Tiger Amulet
     Peacock Amulet ***When you get his fourth level weapon, equip this
rather than the tortise amulet because his Level 4 Sword does not 
increase his life***

=====Battle of Chi Bi=====
    Allied Side
  Short explanation:Make sure all three parts of the fire attack succeed.
  Long  explanation:First of all I recommend doing this in musou mode,
because in free mode it is 5 star dificulty, and in his musou its only
his second stage, so its not that hard. Make sure you are playing on hard
mode for the musou. The three parts of the attack you need to succeed in
are the 1)linking of the ships (destroying the two bridges) 2)Zhuge Liang's
prayer needs to succeed and 3)the actual fire attack itself, by Huang Gai.
Having a horse on this match does help also. To start, kill Cai Mao and
Wang Lang to make sure both of the bridges drop. When Zhuge Liang heads
for the altar, come with him. Head up north from the westmost point of
the map (north of Zhuge's altar) and kill everything in your way. Make
sure the gate up there dies, and you probably want to kill Zhang Liao
to make the units stop coming. Be sure and kill his two officers too.
stay below the raised platform of the alter and make sure nothing gets in
contact with Zhuge Liang. Once the cutscene apears that he has been
sucessfull head toward Huang Gai. Xiahou Yuan will come to kill him. Make
sure Yuan dies. Thats all I hade to do for the fire attack to be launched.
Once it is and Huang Gai gets there, you should get the special item report.
If you dont make sure you are doing all the correct things, it's on hard,
and check your battle history.

        -V.Campaign Walkthrough-                               *MOSOU
Sun Quan has a five level musou mode, most of which is to avenge the
death of Sun Ce and Sun Jian, His brother and father. Note that the
rank of hardness I give them are not in free mode, Chi Bi for example
is a level 5 star in free mode, this is for the purpose of musou mode

>>>>>Battle of Xia Kou             Rank (*)( )( )( )( )        *XIAKOU
     First head north. Kill everything in you path. It is good to have
experiance after the first battle so try to rack up as much kills as
possible, my personal score from first time Sun Quan, with no items
is 827 kills. Kill Zhang Hu when you see him. When you see the first
supply base, head east and kill the checkpoint there. Go back to the
supply base and take over it, and make sure to kill Chen Sheng.
Continue up north untill you see the next supply base. Head west, and
a little south towards the docks, killing the supply base along the way
. Make sure you get those kills! Tashi Ci will continue along the
passage to the north-east. Cheng Pu will follow him shortly. When Gan
Ning appears, he will cill Ling Cao, but there is nothing you can do
to stop him. Cai Mao and Wen Pin cause the boats to attack the main
camp, kill them to stop/prevent it. If the boats are aleady at the
main base, they cannot be stopped. But if only one boat has made it
to the main camp and you kill the officer for the next one, the next
one will be prevented. Make your way to the west and kill the supply
base in your way. Go north from the west checkpoint, no need to clear
it, your allies should be able to do that by now. At the very north,
kill Gan Ning and the checkpoint. Attack the castle, kill Deng Long
to open the west gate. As soon as you enter the castle there will be
a gaurd captain to the north, kill him. Rush for Huang Zu and take
his head!

>>>>>Battle of Chi Bi              Rank (*)(*)( )( )( )        *CHIBI
     Basically what I said in his Fourth Level Weapon discription
except add the following. Once the fire attack succeeded (and you
maybe got your level 4 weapon) continue north the west side killing
everything in your way. The officers are pretty simple. Also kill Cao
Pi before you aim for Cao Cao. After Cao Pi and his little wimpy
officers die, take Cao Cao's Head!

>>>>>Battle of He Fei              Rank (*)(*)(*)(*)( )        *HEFEI
     Walkthrough/strategies coming soon!

>>>>>Battle of He Fei Castle       Rank (*)(*)(*)( )( )        *CASFEI
     When you first start out, head west toward the castle and defeat
the gate captain to open the first outer gate. Then head toward the
middle of the castle to open the next gate, kill everything in your
path. If you recieve the hurry message, just rush to the gate and
kill the gate captain. Kill Xu Huang on your way there our out.
your allies should be able to open the last gate from there, but if
not, rush to help them. Once all three gates are distroyed the rams
will appear. Protect them by infiltrating the castle, throught the
west inner gate, and heading towards the middle of the castle. Kill
Cao Zhang and Cao Zhen on the way there. Once there, kill some of
the remaining units, and hurry on up the giant staircases on the
castle wall and kill the defense captians. Remember there are TWO
defense captains that you must kill, one on each side of the
middle inner gate. After that go north and kill Cao Ren. Then head
east and kill Cao Huang and Wang Leng and their sub officers. After
that there should be enemies on the docks to the northeast. Kill the
two task captains and the officer there and head back to defeat
Xu Zhu, but don't worry while you are gone, Xu Zhu will not be able
to kill any allied officers. If you see the cutscene with the giant
bolder, head to your allies as fast as possible. Zhen Ji will try to
attack from the rear, so head her off and destroy her but beware, she
is one tough cookie. If you havent killed Xu Zhu yet do so now.
Kill the gate captain near Xu Zhu and head north. From there kill
Sima Yi. After Sima Yi's death, make sure you take out BOTH gaurd
captains on each side of Cao Pi. This makes it much easier because
that way tons of units aren't trying to also charge at you. From
there just kill Cao Pi and you have won!

>>>>>Battle of Bai Di              Rank (*)(*)(*)(*)(*)        *BAIDI

        -VI.Frequently Asked Questions-                        *FAQ
Q: Sun Quan Sucks. Why dont you rather play with Zhuo Yun.
A: First of all thats an opinion, and do you mean Zhou Yu, or Zhao
Yun? Learn how to read people.

Q: You say to equip the Peacock Amulet because his defense goes up
with his level 4 weapon, but it doesnt.
A: Sorry about that, when I wrote it, I was looking at different
players weapon. Sorry for confusion.

Q: I really like your FAQ, will you make on on Gan Ning?
A: Maybe, after I make on on Sun Jian.

Q: Like your FAQ. Make one for Gan Ning.
A: Thats not a question but about 4 people have asked me to do
one for Gan Ning now so maybe I will.

Q: I haven't been playing very long but I've been trying to collect
the horses and on a few rare items walkthroughs I've looked at they
keep talking about when you complete the task a message pops up to
tell you where the precious items box is located. Well I've only
managed to get the Hex Mark Saddle and that was on accident, I just
kindof stumbled on it, I didn't get any message that I remember
telling me about it. Is there something I'm suppose to activate to
get those messages?
A: 1) I Have no idea what you just said and 2) Yes there is special
things you are supposed to do to get the valuable item report

Q: There is no more duels what are you talking about?
A: By duels I mean just you and another officer.
