This is the fourth FAQ Iíve written for Dynasty Warriors 5.  I've 
written the FAQs for Zhou Tai, Sun Ce, and Huang Gui for 
already.  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 Lu Xun. 
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 Lu Xun?

Lu Xun is quick, both attacking and moving.  He gets a decent final 
weapon and can juggle or stun officers really well.  His crowd clearing 
abilities may be lacking, but he makes up for it with the fact that he can
attack pretty much constantly since he's so fast.  His musou is pretty 
decent for giving him the crowd control that he lacks, as well as taking 
out officers at the same time.


Lu Xun is one of the starting Wu characters.

Requirements for Obtaining Lu Xun's 4th
Stage- Battle of Bai Di Castle (Hard Difficulty)
Requirement- 1) Defeat Ma Chao and Jiang Wei before entering the castle

Strategy- First of all this is hard any way you chop it.  You could do it
in musuo mode, but Bai Di is one of Lu Xun's last missions, so I recommend
doing this in free HARD mode.  First, go up and kill Huang Zhong because
it relieves Sun Quan when you have to fight the final general later on.
Then attack some of peasants that appear at the Wu/Shu crossroads.  This 
will aggrivate Ma Chao something fierce causing him to show up in Sun 
Quan's camp in hyper mode.  Kill him with some effort, using musou tokens 
and good skill.  Then go through the stone sentinel maze in the northern 
part of the map.  Chop up the statue at the end of the maze, thus opening 
all the doors.  Watch out for the arbelists around Jiang Wei.  Kill Jiang 
Wei.  He isnt as bad as Ma Chao, plus Lu Xun trash talks him in a cut scene
before their fight.  After defeating Jiang Wei you should get a "precious 
item report" in the northeast corner of the stone sentinel maze.  Go get 
your weapon in the maze, and go kill Liu Bei's son.

The trickiest part of this is not getting sucked into going into the 
castle.  This can be hard with all the arbelists around shooting you down,
and with Jiang Wei throwing you places, but there is a flatish peice of
land behind Jiang Wei's arbelist and at a lower elevation than the castle
arbelists.  Make use of this space, as Jiang Wei is much easier without
arbelists around.  

6-Musou Mode

Lu Xun has 5 stages in his musou mode, The 5 stages are

1) The Invasion of Nan Zhong
Wu Forces vs. Nanman Forces
Strategy- Taking over the neutral attack base to the north might be useful
to do at the start of the mission, as later on it provides some defense/
offense against an ambushing Mang Yachang.  After that, basically advance 
southward towards the Nanman camp in the southeast of the map killing 
officers on the way.  When you finally get there Meng Huo charges up the 
right side of the map and starts attacking Sun Quan.  Simply track Meng Huo 
down from behind and kill him.

2) Battle of Fan Castle
Allied Forces vs. Shu Forces
Strategy- Ah yes the battle that enrages Liu Bei.  Clear out defense and
supply bases while taking out generals on your way to Guan Yu.  Take him
down to end the scenario.  Pretty straight forward.

3) Battle of Yi LIng 
Wu Forces vs. Shu Forces
Strategy- Head southwards and take out Guan Xing and Ma Chao as they and 
their subgenerals advance up the right (eastern) side of the map.  Then 
head westward, killing all the generals in front of Liu Bei's fort.  You 
can then advance westward and take out Zhao Yun and Shamoke or you can 
just advance into the fort and kill Liu Bei.  Also having the fire attack 
succeed here makes things much easier.

4) Battle of He Fei Castle
Wu Forces vs. Wei Forces
Strategy- Kill as many officers as you want as you advance into the castle
towards Cao Pi and Sima Yi.  Be careful however, as Zhen Ji shows up after
a while and charges straight down the west side of the map and across the
southern part of the map in an attempt to assasinate Sun Quan.  Either 
take her out quick when this happens, or take Cao Pi out quick and end the

5) Battle of Bai Di Castle
Wu Forces vs. Shu Forces
Strategy- It may be of your benefit to first take out Huang Zhong as he and 
his subgenerals can wreak havok on Sun Quan, especially when Ma Chao 
mysteriously shows up in your camp area.  After defeating at least Huang 
Zhong, and maybe Ma Chao too, take whatever path to the castle you prefer.
Beware of the arbelists though as they are everywhere in and around the 
castle and they will mess your life up if you aren't carefull. 

7-Lu Xun's models

Model 1- This model comes with Lu Xun.  It is mainly red with some gold
and blue.  He wears a red hat, and shows his stomach... attractive. 

Model 2- Lu Xun unlocks this model when he get's about 6000 points. 
This model is just his first model with different colors. The red 
armor turns to purple.  Great.  Still showing his stomach.  Terrible 
costume unless you are a lady gamer.  In which case, go ahead you lady 
gamer, you are ahead of the evolution of women. 

Model 3- Lu Xun unlocks this model when he get about 20000 points.
This is one of his DW4 models. He has on red armor with white pants.  He 
is wearing a red hat, and has tails on his "coat."  Armor has gold designs 
on it.

Model 4- Lu Xun unlocks this model when he get around 20000 points along 
with his model 3.  This is another of Lu Xun's DW4 models. It is similar 
to his model 3 except that he has no hat, and his armor has white in many
places where red was.

8-Lu Xun's Encyclopedia Information

Born 183 A.D.
Died 245 A.D.

A Wu officer who married Sun Ce's daughter.  A very thoughtful young man 
whose distiguished service was rewarded with a promotion from Sun Quan.  
In cooperation with Lu Meng, he managed to defeat Guan Yu and succeeded 
in recapturing Jing.  At the Battle of Yi Ling, he served as Supreme 
Commander, leading Wu to a carefully planned victory over Liu Bei and 
the massive Shu Army.

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

Q: Why can't I get his final weapon?
A: Make sure you are playing at Bai Di Castle from the Wu side on at least 
HARD difficulty.  Then check to make sure you are killing both Ma Chao and
Jiang Wei BEFORE you enter the castle.

Q: What are the best items to equip Lu Xun with?
A: I have a red hare, ice orb, tiger amulet, tortoise amulet, peacock 
amulet, way of the musou, and wind scroll on him right now.  The wind 
scroll is the only one that is absolutely necessary. 

Q: Why do Lu Xun's costumes all look so feminine?
A: As long as I can remember, KOEI has always made Lu Xun with a fairly
high voice and bright clothing.  I am pretty sure that he was very young
in the stories so that might be why as well.
