This is the second FAQ Iíve written for Dynasty Warriors 5, however 
I am no stranger to the Dynasty Warriors series.  I have played DW3, 
DW3Xtreme, DW4, DW4Xtreme, and now DW5.  In my opinion, DW5 has made 
some very significant advances from the previous games and has become 
the best in the series.

I got the game the first day I could, and everything in the below text 
is from my experience in the U.S. version of the game.

This FAQ contains my experience playing Dynasty Warriors 5 as Sun Ce. 
Among things Iíll cover in this FAQ are his move set, weapon info 
(including lvl 4 weapon information), musou mode stages, and models.

2-Why Should I use Sun Ce?

Sun Ce is twitchy and pretty difficult to use.  This may turn people 
off until they try him and find out that he is one of the most fun 
characters in the game.  He is not the best beginner character,
but more advanced players should really like him for his amazing
charge (triangle) attacks, great officer and peon killing musou, as
well as his juggling ability and quick attack speed.  His crowd
control is better in DW5 with the addition of better crowd clearing 
charge attacks, but still needs work.  Use Sun Ce if you want to have 
fun flying around the screen killing things with an interesting, but 
very fun move set.   


Sun Ce is unlocked by completing Sun Quan's musou mode (WHY??).

Requirements for Obtaining Sun Ce's 4th
Stage- The Trials of Sun Ce (Hard Difficulty)
Requirement(s)- 1) Defeat all phantom Yu Ji's
	     	2) Defeat Sun Jian and Da Qiao
		3) Complete 1) and 2) in less than 10 minutes

Strategy- Let me first stress that this weapon is VERY annoying to obtain.
I say this because the Yu Ji's keep coming, half the time you dont get the 
satisfation of actually killing them, there are phantom soldiers, and a 
time limit.  Pain in the butt.  Now that the disclaimer is out of the way,
this is how to obtain it:

First, you start the stage with Yu Ji right in front of you.  Yay!  You kill
him and it says "Hey I'm over here."  After killing 2 or so initial Yu Ji's,
you phantom soldiers appear to annoy you as you fight 2 or so more phantom 
Yu Ji's.  Ok blah thats done.  Now Yu Ji summons some of Sun Ce's forces, 
kill these until something else happens (as a warning: the forces will keep 
coming for the remainder of the battle w/ no gate guards).  After 50 or so 
are dead Yu Ji will come back and make Sun Jian and Da Qiao phantoms.  Beat 
them, AND SAVE!!!!  Hopefully, by this point only 4.5 minutes at most has 
leaked away from your clock.  Now it gets more annoying... Yu Ji summons 
around 7 or 8 more phantoms.  After beating 2 the rest get stronger (ie. 
more hit points).  And after 2 or 3 more die, the remainder go into hyper 
mode... grrrr.  Not to mention that since its a small stage you may end up 
fighting 4 maybe even 5 at once while all of them are using their favorite
and very annoying lets make an ice cube out of Sun Ce skill.  Keep an eye out
for it, and if you get bogged down use your musou or a mosou token.  I once 
got frozen 6 times in a row while fighting 4 Yu Ji's before i could even 
mash the circle button.  After all the phantoms are dead, and if you didnt 
take too long, the "precious item report" should appear.  Get the weapon and 
kill the final Yu Ji (he has 2 life bars).

The trickiest part of this is... who am I kidding? the whole thing is tricky.
Just try not to take too much time since the time seems to be the big problem.
Also, I've noticed that sometimes the weapon doesn't appear even if all the
requirements are met.  If this happens try meeting the requirements in 8
minutes insted of ten.  Other than that just keep on going back to your save
and trying again till you get it.  Annoying. 

6-Musou Mode

Sun Ce has 6 stages in his musou mode, The 6 stages are

1) The Yellow Turban Rebellion
Han Forces vs. Yellow Turbans
Strategy- Come on now... these enemies die in one hit.  Kill everything, 
while making your way to the top right corner of the map.  Careful though,
Zhang Jiao is pretty strong/annoying compared to the rest of the stage. 

2) Battle of Si Shui Gate
Allied Forces vs. Dong Zhuo's Forces
Strategy-Kill Fan Chou (he's only a few feet from where you start), then
go through the defense base into the central area of the map taking out
officers as you see them.  Sun Jian will complain about being tired, so
if you go to the northeast part of the map and defeat Hu Zhen, and claim
the defense base there, pop will be pleased.  Then move towards the 
gate.  Lu Bu will appear.  Unless you're pretty damn strong don't even 
bother with Lu Bu, just continue past the gate to the south, around the 
loop and up towards the north again (getting at Hua Xiong from the south).  
Kill Hua Xiong to end it. 

3) Battle of Jing Province 
Sun Jian's Forces vs. Liu Biao's Forces
Strategy- So sad... This is where pop dies.  If you want you can go kill 
Huang Zu before he ambushes Sun Jian, and Sun Jian will not withdraw during
the battle.  Other than that advance into the castle and take out Liu Biao.

4) Battle of the Wu Territory 
Sun Ce's Forces vs. Allied Forces
Strategy- Basically take out all the forts and the generals inside them, 
finishing the battle by beating Taishi Ci since Liu Yong flees. 

5) The Trials of Sun Ce
Sun Ce's Forces vs. Phantom Army
Strategy- Kill everything Yu Ji throws at you including Sun Jian, Da Qiao,
and the phantoms.  Or if this stage annoys you as it does me, just go for
Yu Ji as soon as you can (whether all the phantoms are dead or not) 

6) Battle of Xia Kou
Sun Ce's Forces vs. Huang Zu's Forces
Strategy- Gan Ning mixes up trouble here, killing Ling Tong's father and
causing Ling Tong to blindly attack him.  I've seen Gan Ning wipe them 
both out.  But anyways... Proceed up the east side of the map taking out 
the various forts and generals as you come to them.  You can take out Cai 
Mao and Wen Pin if you want (They will launch an attack by sea after some 
time), though its not necessary since Sun Ce is the one that must stay 
alive, so it doesn't matter if they both wipe out your base.  Either way,
make your way up to the final fort from the east, west, or south and 
defeat Huang Zu.  Thus ends Sun Ce's chapter in the Wu dynasty.

7-Sun Ce's models

Model 1- This model comes with Sun Ce.  He has on red/black armor, with a 
red ribbon in his pony tailed hair (not as homosexual as it sounds).  
Also has tiger print on the sides and back of the lower part of his robe.

Model 2- Sun Ce unlocks this model when he get's about 6000 points. 
This model is just his first model with different colors. The red 
armor turn to black... The Tiger print from the first is still there.  
Still a good outfit, not much different from his starting costume (my 
personal favorite). 

Model 3- Sun Ce unlocks this model when he get about 20000 points.
This is one of his DW4 models. Basically it is a dark blue and red armor 
with a smaller pony tail.  The torso is armor unlike the first two costumes 
which are more like robes.

Model 4- Sun Ce unlocks this model when he get around 20000 points 
along with his model 3.  This is another of Sun Ce's DW4 models. It is 
similar to his model 3 except that it replaces some of the red with silver,
and has a low fluffy pony tail instead of a high one (hair looks kind of 

8-Sun Ce's Encyclopedia Information

Born 175 A.D.
Died 200 A.D.

The oldest son of Sun Jian.  After his father's death, Sun Ce went to serve
Yuan Shu.  Later, borrowing 3,000 troops in exchange for the Imperial Seal,
he went on to raise his own army.  In a short while, he had already 
stabilized the land of Jiang Dong, giving him the nickname of "Little 
Conqueror."  Starting with his old friend Zhou Yu, he went on to gather 
many talented officers, laying the foundation for the Wu Kingdom.

Since this is a FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) this section will continue 
to grow as people send emails containing questions about Sun Ce.

Q: Why can't I get his final weapon?
A: His weapon is a pain.  Took me three times.  Make sure you kill all the
phantoms, Sun Jian, and Da Qiao before you beat the real Yu Ji.  Also try
completing it in 8 minutes instead of ten as I recommend above.  Other
than that, just keep trying.

Q: Why does Sun Ce look younger than Sun Quan?
A: Ask KOEI... I'm sure they'd love to answer this question.

Q: I hate Sun Ce!! He Sux!!
A: Well I'm sure that Sun Ce and all of his family hate you.
