become my favorite character due to his gorgeous appearance, beautiful
personality, and his graceful move set plus I just love claws.

---- Zhang He ----
Given Name: He
During the fall of the Han, a group of fanatics called the Yellow Turbans rose
up in rebellion. Help was needed to quell them. Zhang He served under Han Fu in
order to contribute to repelling the Yellow Turbans. When Han Fu was defeated,
Zhang He went over to Yuan Shao. While serving Yuan Shao, Zhang He scored
numerous achievements against Gongsun Zan and showed outstanding prowess as a
During the battle of Guan Du, Zhang He was a commander under Yuan Shao. When
the Wu Chao supply depot was taken and set aflame, Zhang He proposed to
Yuan Shao that he and Gao Lan go to save Wu Chao. However, Guo Tu disagreed and
said, "If they have plundered the stores then Cao Cao is there and Guan Du is
undefended. Strike Guan Du first and Cao will retreat swiftly." Zhang He
disagreed with him and replied, "Cao Cao is full of schemes. He would never
undertake such an operation and leave his base vulnerable. If we attack Guan Du
and fail, Chunyu Qiong will be captured and so will we." However, Yuan Shao
went with Guo Tu's advice and sent Zhang He and Gao Lan to attack Guan Du and
Jiang Qi to relieve Wu Chao.
Cao Cao decimated Chunyu Qiong's unit and disguised his army as remnants of
Chunyu Qiong's scattered unit and snuck into Jiang Qi's unit. Jiang Qi then
rode out towards Wu Chao, but back-up units led by Xu Zhu and Zhang Liao
appeared and cut Jiang Qi down. Cao Cao then had a message sent to Yuan Shao
saying Jiang Qi chased off the raiders, and thus Yuan Shao sent more men to
Guan Du and none to Wu Chao. The defense of Guan Du prevailed over Yuan Shao's
force, but Zhang He and Gao Lan managed to escape.
Guo Tu realized that Zhang He's advice was true and that he would bring that up
upon return, so he told Yuan Shao that Zhang He and Gao Lan sought to defect
over to Cao Cao. Guo Tu then went and told Gao Lan and Zhang He and fearing
Yuan Shao, they did indeed defect to Cao Cao, something Zhang He wanted to do
for a long time.
Cao Cao was very pleased to have Zhang He among his ranks and Zhang He
continued to serve him throughout the years. He was present during many future
battles, including finishing off the Yuans, Chi Bi, Ma Chao, but he didn't
really stand out again until he was stationed around Hanzhong.
Cao Hong had just captured Hanzhong along with Zhang He and Xiahou Yuan.
Cao Hong was cautious due to Guan Lu's word that a top general will die in this
region, but Zhang He took no heed to this prediction and offered to capture
Baxi which was held by Zhang Fei, even offering to submit to the martial code,
should he fail. Cao Hong approved.
Zhang He divided his troops among three forts and went out to attack Zhang Fei.
The two warriors engaged each other, but Lei Tong ambushed Zhang He from
behind, causing him to retreat back to his fort. There he held up a defense and
after a few days, Zhang Fei also retreated for a defense. Liu Bei sent
Zhang Fei some wine and one day, Zhang Fei was drinking and Zhang He's spies
reported this to him. Zhang He decided to take advantage and raid Zhang Fei's
camp that night. That night, he stormed Zhang Fei's camp, but he anticipated
this and replaced himself with a straw figure. Afterwards, Zhang He's troops
were bombarded and the real Zhang Fei appeared. Zhang He hoped for help from
his other two camps, but they had already been taken by Wei Yan and Lei Tong,
and his main camp had been taken by Zhang Fei's rear guard. So Zhang He
retreated to Wakou Pass, where he asked for help from Cao Hong, who was furious
and ordered Zhang He into battle once again.
Zhang He decided to feign defeat and cause Zhang Fei to pursue him while his
two units cut off his return route. Zhang He engaged Lei Tong and using this
tactic, surrounded him. Zhang He then slew Lei Tong. He then tried the same
tactic against Zhang Fei, but Fei realized his plan and had Wei Yan block off
Zhang He's ambush troops. When Zhang He turned to flee, Zhang Fei pursued and
defeated Zhang He. Zhang He then returned to Wakou Pass. After another ambush
from Zhang Fei and Wei Yan, Zhang He was forced out of Wakou Pass and retreated
to Nanzheng, where Cao Hong was located. He was infuriated at Zhang He and
ordered him executed, but Guo Huai interceded and convinced Cao Hong to give
him another chance. Zhang He was then assigned to capture Jiameng Pass.
Zhang He led an attack on Jiameng Pass, but he was met by Huang Zhong. While
battling Huang Zhong, Yan Yan sneaked behind Zhang He's army. Zhang He was
defeated and driven away. Once again, Cao Hong was steaming. He then sent
Han Hao and Xiahou Shang to assist Zhang He. They went after Huang Zhong and he
continuously retreated and they captured Huang Zhong's camps, but this was just
a ploy of Huang Zhong's to make the enemy overconfident and he recaptured his
camps, which were restocked by the enemy, soon after. Zhang He retreated to
Mt. Tiandang, held by Xiahou De, and took position there. Huang Zhong pressed
the attack and cut Han Hao down. Zhang He and Xiahou Shang went to do battle
with soldiers coming from the west and Xiaho De went to put out some fires that
have erupted, but he was killed by Yan Yan. Zhang He had to abandon the
mountain and retreated to Mt. Dingjun with Xiahou Shang.
Liu Bei had then decided to march onto Hanzhong, but would first have to take
Mt. Dingjun, which was held by Xiahou Yuan. Cao Hong rushed to the capital to
inform Cao Cao who then prepared to go to assist Xiahou Yuan. After hearing of
Zhang He's defeats, Cao Cao said, "Don't blame him. The fortunes of war are
nothing unusual to the military man." Xiahou Yuan was against Huang Zhong and
Zhang He was advising him to defend, but Xiahou Yuan did not listen to his
advice. Nevertheless, Xiahou Yuan captured Chen Shi, but Xiahou Shang was also
captured. An exchange was set up, but after the two men returned to their
respective sides, Huang Zhong shot Xiahou Shang in the back with an arrow.
Xiahou Yuan attacked Huang Zhong in a fury, but was defeated and forced back.
Once again, Zhang He advised Yuan to hold his position, but he did not and went
to attack Huang Zhong. After a slackening of morale, Huang Zhong stormed down
upon Xiahou Yuan and cut his head off along with part of his shoulder. Zhang He
could not defend Dingjun any further and he then fled to Cao Cao.
Cao Cao was depressed over the death of Xiahou Yuan and mourned for him, but he
had to try and retake Dingjun. He sent Zhang He and Xu Huang forth and the two
surrounded Huang Zhong, but he was rescued by Zhao Yun. On another day,
Zhang He, Xu Huang, and Cao Cao himself met Zhao Yun at his camp, but they were
met by an ambush from many of Shu's generals and were forced to withdraw.
Dingjun would remain lost and they would eventually go on to lose Hanzhong as
Zhang He appreciated scholars, poetry, and music, and has become one of Wei's
top generals. Zhang He was so skilled even Zhuge Liang and Liu Bei feared him.

---- Musou Mode ----
Zhang He has 5 levels in his Musou Mode. They are as follows.
1. Battle of Guan Du
2. Battle of Tong Gate
3. Battle of Mt. Ding Jun
4. Battle of Jie Ting
5. Battle of Chen Cang
I will give a basic stage layout for each level as well as my recommendation as
to how to complete each level. Each of my strategies were done on the Normal
difficulty, and there may be variations to how the battle progresses with each
battle, but these strategies' purposes will only be to explain a good way to
dominate the map by defeating all officers and taking all bases which should
net you a hefty sum of points if you also take time to kill enemy soldiers.

From where you start, head southwest and take the enemy base there. While there
you should encounter Cao Zhang. Defeat him as well and head south of this base
and defeat Xiahou Dun who should be stationed right there. As you near the
castle, Yuan Shao will send out siege towers. Advance further and defeat Yu Jin
who should be closeby. Around this point, Guan Yu will slay Yan Liang. Soon,
Cao Cao, who's at Guan Du Castle, will counter Yuan Shao with catapults. Head
over to Cao Pi's position and eliminate him. Guan Yu should then soon kill
Wen Chou as well. Go past Li Dian for now, and head for Guan Yu. He should hear
news Liu Bei's whereabouts and will soon begin to retreat as will Liu Bei.
Chase him down and defeat him. Take the enemy base and gate in this area.
Defeat Wei Xu and Song Xian who should be around somewhere. Head over to
Han Hao who should be around Yuan Shang's position and defeat him. Cao Hong

Castle. Defeat Xun You and Liu Yan and take the enemy gate. Go along the
southern path from here and take the enemy gate. Now, go back to Li Dian and
finish him off. Skip past Yue Jin for now and continue along to take the enemy
gate and the enemy base. Also defeat Zhu Ling who should be around this area.
Go back and defeat Yue Jin. During all this time, Yuan Shao's forces will have
been fighting to open Guan Du castle. Either they'll break through from the
north or enemy soldiers will open the sides in order to escape or both. Either
way, enter Guan Du and take out the two gates. Defeat Guo Jia, Cheng Yu, and
Jia Xu, and after that, defeat Cao Cao to complete the stage.

ending movie, Dance 'til Dawn. ^_^
---- Weapons ----
Zhang He uses claws on each hand as his weapons.
--Charge Attack- 15
--Musou Fill- 15
Obtaining Phoenix Talon
You must play as Zhang He at the "Battle of Jie Ting" stage in either
Musou Mode or Free Mode on Hard difficulty.
Head north towards Gao Xiang's position and defeat him. Also defeat the Guard
Captain nearby to take the gate. (You also might as well grab the Musou Wine
which is right by the gate in the barrel.) Now head over to Wang Ping's
position and defeat him as well and take the gate near him too. Now you'll get
a scene with Zhang He talking about the foolishness of the enemy. Now you'll
have to wait until Ma Su begins his retreat. I like to eliminate Jiang Wei
during this time. Once Ma Su begins to head back to the main camp, the one
where Zhuge Liang appears, chase him down and eliminate him. After a few
messages the valuable item report will show up along the northern path
connecting the mountain summit with the Wei main camp. Bag the weapon and
finish the stage.
