    Dynasty Warriors 5 (Shin Sangoku Musou 4 to the Japanese players) is the latest
    installment in KOEI's games of the long-running hack-n-slash series based on
    the Three Kingdoms era in Chinese history. It takes elements from Dynasty
    Warriors 3 and 4, and combines it with an element (tweaked a bit of course) from
    Dynasty Warriors 4: Empires to make a fantastic game.
    
    The game takes away the Versus Mode, along with the Create-A-Warrior as well.
    Each character now has their very own Musou Mode, which is different than the
    Kingdom Mode offered in DW4. The weapon system also returns to the old "find
    them in the field" way of DW3, with a unique 4th weapon found by fulfilling
    certain requirements. The game also offers 6 new characters for you to enjoy.

    ============|                     III. GAME BASICS                  |===========
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ|                                                       |ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ

    The game uses the same premise from the other games for mostly everything in
    this game. For Musou Mode, you pick a character and get thrown into the story
    for that particular character. Once any FMVs or briefings are over, you'll see
    the pre-battle preparations screen. Here, you can switch weapons you have, equip
    items and assign a bodyguard. You can also check out what units are in the
    battle, as well as an overview of the story behind the battle. Free Mode is
    pretty much the same thing, except you have to choose a stage and side to fight
    on before moving onto the preparations screen/battlefield.
    
    Battles pretty much are the same as always. You run around and hack-n-slash your
    way to victory, usually by defeating the opposing commander in the battle. One
    of the new things added to the game is bases. There are three types of bases in
    the game and they all have the same function pretty much. The three types are
    attack, defense and supply. Attack bases are labeled with a triangle on the map,
    defense ones are labeled with a square and supply bases have a circle. There are
    also the Checkpoints, which serve the same function as gates in Dynasty Warriors
    3, in that, they will pour out troops for the enemy until you defeat the Guard
    Captain. You can also tell which base is which by what type of weapon the
    soldiers are holding; Attack base soldiers have two short swords, Defense ones
    have a shield and a spear and Supply base troops carry spears.
    
    When you spot an enemy base, there will usually be two entrances to the inside.
    You must defeat one of the Gate Captains in order to be able to go inside and
    once inside, defeating the Guard Captain will cause the base to fall from their
    hands. The first function conquering bases from the enemy is causing the enemy's
    morale to fall. A conquered base also ceases to function any longer and will not
    function for the duration of the battle. Checkpoints are special, in that, they
    can be recaptured by the enemy and be used again. Neutral bases (gray on map)
    are not with any side at the beginning of the battle and will belong to any side
    that enters them first.
    
    After you finish a battle by fulfilling the objectives, you'll be taken through
    all of the post-battle screens. First is a victory message by the commander or
    strategist. Next is what items you acquired during that battle. Any items with
    the same value or lower than the current one will be immediately discarded.
    After that, you go to the points acquired screen and the weapons one following
    that. If you took a bodyguard into battle, you'll have a bodyguard rating screen
    after the weapons one. There is also a chance that new bodyguards may want to
    join your service after a battle (Musou and Free Modes only).
    
    Another thing that has changed since the last game is saving in the middle of
    a battle. In Dynasty Warriors 5, you still have the option to save during the
    middle of a battle, but there are some changes. The number of saves you have
    depends on the diffculty you're playing on. For instance, on Easy, you have an
    unlimited amount of saves, but you only have 1 interim save on Hard. Unlike the
    previous games, you are not brought back to the title screen when you save
    during a battle, but you can resume it like normal when you go to the info
    screen. The interim save is gone only if you finish the stage and overwrite the
    save like normal.

    When you start a new game, you'll have six characters from Shu ready from the
    beginning: Zhao Yun, Guan Yu, Zhang Fei, Ma Chao, Huang Zhong and Xing Cai. Here
    is a list of the unlockable Shu generals and the requirements needed to unlock
    them (in alphabetical order):
    
    Guan Ping.....Complete Musou Mode with Guan Yu
    Jiang Wei.....Complete Musou Mode with any 2 characters from Shu

    Here are the stage order for each of the characters of Shu. Afterwards, I will
    individually list each stage, in chronological order, with a strategy for each

    are done on NORMAL difficulty.

                 Battle of Chen Cang, Battle of Wu Zhang Plains
    
    
    -----NOTE-----
    Most of the time, more than one character share a stage. If it's the case that
    they start at different positions (Zhao Yun starts at a slightly different
    position at Hu Lao Gate than the Three Brothers do), then I will give different
    walkthroughs for that stage that will eventually converge into the same one
    because in the end, the final outcome is the same. If there are more than one
    walkthrough for one particular stage and one requires a full strategy that
    doesn't join with the other characters, then there will be a (start to finish)
    next to the header there. The second paragraph after the last set of characters
    is when the paths will merge, so it may be a little confusing at first.

                              (  BATTLE OF JI PROVINCE  )
                               \=======================/
    
    ----- Allies vs. Yellow Turbans
    ----- Characters: Zhao Yun
    
    When the battle begins, go forward and take out Cheng Yuanzhi in the southeast
    corner, as well as the checkpoint and defense base. Soon after, Zhang Jiao
    should summon some wind in the corridor just south of the altar in the middle.
    He'll then retreat to the northeast corner of the map and tell Zhang Bao to go
    to the altar and give the winds more power. Take out Zhang Liang as you continue
    north (this prevents a third powerup to the winds). When you arrive in the
    middle of the map at the altar, you can either quickly take out Zhang Bao and
    Pei Yuan Shao to take the altar and prevent the strengthening of the winds, or
    you can go south and take out the officers there. Once both areas are clear, you
    can start working your way towards Zhang Jiao. Once you get to where Zhang Jiao
    is located, take out the two checkpoints and then concentrate on Zhang Jiao to
    finish the battle.
    
    
                              /==========================\
                             (  BATTLE OF LIANG PROVINCE  )
                              \==========================/
    
    ----- Allies vs. Dong Zhuo
    ----- Characters: Ma Chao
    
    When the stage begins, go forth and take out the defense base a bit southeast of
    your initial position and Zhao Cen, who should be close as well. Notice that
    Dong Zhuo isn't at the battle yet, but he'll arrive once enough times passes or
    you get close enough to the fort at the southeast corner. After taking out the
    defense base, go to the southwest corner and clear out that attack base, as well
    as Niu Fu. By now, you'll be given orders to take out the enemy checkpoints in
    the central south and central east to avoid letting reinforcements come. You're
    closer to the southern one, so go there and take out Xu Rong and the checkpoint.
    
    From the last checkpoint, you can move on over to the eastern one to cut off the
    reinforcements there. By now, Dong Zhuo should have already shown up or will
    show up shortly in the southeast fortress. If he has shown up, it's too late now
    to take out the northeast base to call in for your reinforcements, but if he
    hasn't, then hurry there and quickly take it out. Once he does show up, he'll
    eventually call in two officers as reinforcements in the northeast/southwest
    corners. Go there and take them out, then make your way to defeat Dong Zhuo and
    finish the stage.
    
    
                            /=============================\
                           (  THE YELLOW TURBAN REBELLION  )
                            \=============================/
    
    ----- Han vs. Yellow Turbans
    ----- Characters: Liu Bei
    
    When the stage begins, head up the west side of the map and take out the attack
    base there. As you get close to the narrow passage just beyond the base, Zhang
    Bao will begin dropping boulders that will roll down the passage. At the
    beginning of the passage is Zhang Bao's subofficer, so take him out and then
    blow past the rest of the soldiers to get to the altar where Zhang Bao is
    located. Feel free to seal the checkpoint in the northwest corner first, then
    go after Zhang Bao. Defeating him stops the rockslide.
    
    From here, you can either go along the north path to get to the fort where Zhang
    Jiao is located, or you can take the path that goes into the center. By this
    time, Zhang Man Cheng should be "feeling the power in his hands," which means
    that he'll turn some of Sun Jian's soldiers against him. Defeating Zhang Man
    Cheng will make Han Dang rejoin Sun Jian, so it definitely helps out his morale.
    By now, Zhang Liang will probably have already summoned the tornado in the
    narrow passage to the south of his altar. Feel free to go down there and take
    him out to get rid of the tornado and raise your army's morale high.
    
    Once Zhang Liang is gone, the only thing left to do should be to go after Zhang
    Jiao, so make your way up to the fort in the northeast corner. Once you enter
    the fortress, Zhang Jiao will summon a phantom army that is invincible to all of
    your attacks. Note that two of Zhang Jiao's subofficers are on each side of the
    main altar, near the checkpoints. To get rid of the phantom army, simply go on
    the lower altar and break all four objects that are pulsating. Once that's done,
    seal the remaining checkpoints and defeat Zhang Jiao. He goes into hyper mode
    once you meet up with him and uses an Attack x2 for 30 seconds, but he's pretty
    easy to beat.
    
    
                              /========================\
                             (  BATTLE OF SI SHUI GATE  )
                              \========================/
    
    ----- Allies vs. Dong Zhuo
    ----- Characters: Guan Yu
    
    When the battle starts, go north and defeat Hu Zhen, then take out the defense
    base nearby (Niu Fu should be close to the base on the other side or inside the
    base). This will secure the supply line for Sun Jian and his troops will rejoin
    the battle in the south. After the base is cleared, you can go into the middle
    of the map and start cleaning that out. There are three officers and one or two
    subofficers here, as well as an attack base, so you should be busy for a bit.
    
    By now, someone from your army will have opened up the first gate of Si Shui
    Gate, which will trigger Lu Bu's appearance. Lu Bu is one tough cookie who is in
    hyper mode when you meet up with him and uses Musou Rage, as well as some of the
    other attacks for 30 seconds, so be careful if you want to try and kill him (he
    only drops a weapon box). If you heed Yuan Shao's words and head for the gate by
    the other path, then Li Ru will appear near the base there. Take out Li Ru and
    go through the supply base, then start heading north to Hua Xiong. Feel free to
    take out the checkpoints and then Hua Xiong himself to finish the stage.

    there, as well as any officers you find. From here, you can either go to the
    northeast to help out Liu Bei or go to the southwest to help out Cao Cao. When
    you're finished in one area, go to the other and then head towards Hu Lao Gate.
    
    ------------
    CHARACTERS 2
    ------------
    At the beginning of the battle, go north and take out the base there and any
    officers you find as well. After that area is clear, head towards the middle and
    clean it as well. The last area you should head for is the southwest corner,
    which should be filled with an ambush if Cao Cao's troops got that far. Clear it
    out and then head for Hu Lao Gate.
    -------------------------
    
    Once the three initial areas from above are cleared out, head towards Hu Lao
    Gate and get ready for some fun. When you, or any other soldiers from your army,
    enter the area in front of Hu Lao, catapults will start attacking and they do
    hurt if you happen to get hit (keep moving). Take out Li Jue and the checkpoint
    on the left side, then start moving east. The first gate has probably been open
    by now, which will trigger Lu Bu to appear. He goes into hyper mode upon contact
    with him, as well as using Musou Rage when low on health, so be careful if you
    decide to confront him.
    
    Not too long after Lu Bu appears, Yuan Shao will say to not confront him and
    go along the detour to Hu Lao Gate. If you decide to take this path, there will
    be a base along the way, as well as Zhang Liao. Once Zhang Liao is finished,
    head inside the fort. Eventually, Dong Zhuo will call in reinforcements (Fan
    Chou) from the southeast, so head there if you want to defeat him. If you kill
    all three subofficers of Dong Zhuo, he will call back Lu Bu to protect him.
    Quickly take out both checkpoints, then go after Dong Zhuo to avoid having Lu Bu
    being called back.

                                (  BATTLE OF XIA PI  )
                                 \==================/
    
    ----- Cao Cao vs. Lu Bu
    ----- Characters: Zhang Fei
    
    When the stage starts, go forward and take the defense base just across the
    bridge. One of Cao Cao's soldiers will note that Yuan Shu is on his way to try
    and help out Lu Bu, so someone suggests that you go and destroy the floodgates
    before he arrives. This, of course, triggers Gao Shun to go and try to reinforce
    the floodgates. Your goal is to defeat him before he manages to totally
    reinforce the floodgates, which will make Yuan Shu and one other officer to
    appear in the south, each with four subofficers. Once finished with the defense
    base, go north and take out the attack base and the checkpoint right outside
    the southern gate of Xia Pi Castle. If Wei Xu comes out of the south gate while
    you're doing all of this, take him out; otherwise, start heading up the east
    side of the map.
    
    When you get to the northeast corner, take out the supply base and then Zhang
    Liao. Once they're finished, go towards Gao Shun and once you kill him, the
    castle will be flooded. If Hou Cheng and Song Xian are still alive, they will
    defect to Cao Cao's side. This also makes Yuan Shu reconsider his offer to help
    Lu Bu and he doesn't join the battle. One last thing is that some soldiers will
    leave Lu Bu's army and open the north gate to escape. Head through the north
    gate and Lu Bu will be right to the east, although you should probably take out
    his two subofficers first, then you can concentrate on him. He isn't as bad as
    he is at Si Shui and Hu Lao, but he still is in hyper mode and does use Musou
    Rage, so be careful.

    ----- Cao Cao vs. Yuan Shao
    ----- Characters: Guan Yu
    
    Go north, through the fort, and defeat Yan Liang. Continue going north and Liu
    Bei will pull back because he knows Guan Yu is near, but you can defeat him if
    you want. Go north some more and take out Yuan Tan, then head back to your main
    camp as it's probably being surrounded by Yuan Shao's troops. If they get close
    enough, siege towers will be set up to try and breach the walls, but Cao Cao
    will retaliate with catapults. Anyways, if the siege towers are set up, simply
    go and destroy them, as well as any officers lurking about. The siege ramps can
    be set up again if soldiers are still hanging around the front of the castle, so
    kill everyone.
    
    By this time, the Wu Chao supply depot doors should be open, so head over there
    when you have the chance and take out Chunyu Qiong to set fire to the depot and
    raise your army's morale. After that's done, it's time to take out any other
    officers left on the map, then go after Yuan Shao to finish the stage.

    ----- Guan Yu vs. Cao Cao
    ----- Characters: Guan Yu
    
    This is a nice and simple stage, as far as a walkthrough is concerned, as it's
    very, very linear. Once the stage starts, go forward and engage in combat with
    Zhang Liao. Once you get his health to about 3/4 left, you'll get a cutscene and
    he'll begin withdrawing; if you want to kill him, go ahead but you don't need
    to. After that, it's a simple go and kill each officer at each gate to progress.
    Never leave the carriage behind because if it is destroyed, you lose. Once you
    clear the fourth gate, Xiahou Dun will apppear back at the beginning of the
    stage, but don't worry about him just yet. Kill Xu Zhu and Qin Qi, then go back
    and defeat Xiahou Dun to open the fifth and final gate. Xiahou Dun goes into
    hyper mode upon meeting him and does use Musou Rage when low on health, so be
    careful.

                                \=====================/
    
    ----- Liu Bei vs. Cao Cao
    ----- Characters 1: Guan Ping
          Characters 2: Zhao Yun
          Characters 3: Zhang Fei
          Characters 4: Liu Bei, Yue Ying, Zhuge Liang
    
    ------------
    CHARACTERS 1 (start to finish)
    ------------
    The first thing you should do when you start is occupy some of the neutral bases
    around the map. Take the defense one just to the north, then the one to the west
    and the one at the bottom of the map. If the enemy occupies the attack base near
    the first defense one, go and take it. After that, go and take out the officers
    that are making their way south. By this time, enemy reinforcements might have
    shown up in the southeast, but don't worry about them right now and go meet up
    with Liu Bei.
    
    If you want Liu Bei to escape, head to the southeast and take out those
    reinforcements from before. If you want to defeat Cao Cao, simply continue
    slaying officers and his troops until he shows up in the north. If you clear out
    the southeast soldiers, then Liu Bei will head to the escape point when Liu Qi
    shows up in the southeast.
    
    ------------
    CHARACTERS 2
    ------------
    When the stage starts, go south and seal the checkpoint, then start making your
    way to the east where Zhang Fei is located. As you head east, take out any
    officers that happen to be in your way and seal the checkpoints as well. Once
    you get to Zhang Fei, continue going until you meet up with Liu Bei.
    
    ------------
    CHARACTERS 3
    ------------
    Your main goal at the beginning of the stage is to guard Chang Ban Bridge and
    not let anyone pass (it doesn't really matter if someone does or not, but it's
    good for your morale). You should guard it until Zhao Yun manages to meet up
    with Liu Bei, at which point, you can join up with the other forces in the
    middle of the map.
    
    ------------
    CHARACTERS 4 (Must defeat Cao Cao when playing with Liu Bei)
    ------------
    When the battle starts, start going towards the neutral defense base in the
    middle of the map, but don't worry about the base on the northern path, as your
    troops will get that one. By the time the northern of the two bases in the
    middle is captured, Zhuge Liang will send out a task force to initiate a fire
    attack. Protect the task unit until the fire attack occurs, then you can clear
    out the rest of the central area, then go north to go after the generals there.
    -------------------------
    
    The first reinforcements for the enemy to show up are Cao Zhang and Xu Huang in
    the north. Guan Yu should show up for your forces in the southwest shortly after
    that. The next enemy reinforcements will appear in the southeast in the form of
    Jia Xu. Liu Qi will show up for Shu shortly after that. The last unit to show up
    is Cao Cao's main one in the north; he shows up as Liu Bei approaches the escape
    point in the southeast. If you want Liu Bei to escape, then simply go and take
    out Jia Xu. If you want to defeat Cao Cao, I would let Jia Xu stay and go and
    take him out (you'll need to defeat Cao Cao with Liu Bei, so go and take out Jia
    Xu anyways).

    ----- Allies vs. Cao Cao
    ----- Characters: Pang Tong
    
    Play the battle normally until you're told to clear the central bridges of enemy
    officers. Go north and take out Cai Mao to clear the bridge, then head to the
    east and defeat Wang Lang to clear the bridge over there. Next, you should head
    over to the west side of the map and get rid of Zhang Liao to ensure that the
    prayer for wind doesn't get interrupted. After Zhang Liao is finished, you
    should probably head over to the eastern part of the map, as Zhen Ji is probably
    inching her way down. Eventually, the fire attack will happen and your army will
    get a huge boost in morale. After it happens, just play the rest of the battle
    out normally.

    ----- Allies vs. Cao Cao
    ----- Characters: Guan Ping, Guan Yu, Liu Bei
    
    Your goal in this stage is to defeat Cao Cao before he can manage to escape.
    There will be a lot more reinforcements that arrive besides what you see on the
    map, although they are all generic officers. When the battle begins, go forward
    and take out Cao Ren and his troops. After that, start heading east and you'll
    Zhang Liao and his troops. When you get to the checkpoint just north of Zhang
    Liao, Cao Cao will continue marching and go to where xiahou Dun is. As you get
    closer, Jia Xu will show up in the northeast and when you get even closer,
    Xiahou Yuan will show up to the north.
    
    Jia Xu will eventually come down to where you are, so take care of him and
    Xiahou Dun, then start heading north to Cao Cao's position. If you want to
    defeat him now, feel free but there will be more reinforcements showing up.
    Cao Zhang and Cao Hong show up in the southeast, while Xun Yu will appear in the
    northeast, securing an escape point for Cao Cao. If you've beaten every officer
    on the field, then Cao Cao will probably be surrounded by your allies, so there
    are no worries about him getting to escape. Defeat Xun Yu and if all generals
    are gone, Cao Cao will go into hyper mode. Defeat him to end the battle.

    ----- Allies vs. Cao Cao
    ----- Characters: Ma Chao
    
    Your first priority is to take out any of the officers in front of Tong Gate.
    This includes Zhu Ling, Cao Hong and Xiahou Yuan. Also, you should take out the
    checkpoint and the two bases near the gate. Eventually, Cao Cao will start
    heading north, across the river and will try to hit Tong Gate from there. Take
    out Xu Zhu, who will "block" your pursuit of Cao Cao, then continue heading to
    the north. Xu Huang probably has arrived by this point and will go with Cao Cao.
    Also by this time, Han Sui will probably start heading north to confront Cao
    Cao's advance.
    
    When Cao Cao says something along the lines of they have to be careful not to
    get surrounded on both sides, Jia Xu will suggest talking to his old friend
    Han Sui. Eventually, Han Sui will defect to Cao Cao's side and a bunch of your
    generals will withdraw due to this. Take out Han Sui and any other officers in
    the area, including Cao Ren, who shows up as reinforcements in the northwest.
    After that, simply finish off Cao Cao to end the stage.

          Characters 2: Xing Cai, Zhang Fei, Zhao Yun
    
    ------------
    CHARACTERS 1
    ------------
    When the battle starts, go forward and take out the checkpoint just ahead, as
    well as the two to the north. Not too long after the stage starts, both Liu Han
    and Leng Bao will appear near the first checkpoint you probably took out. Take
    them both out and then Zhang Yi will probably show up just to the east of them.
    Defeat him and make your way towards Zhang Ren, if and only if you want to keep
    Pang Tong on the battlefield (obviously void if playing as him). He triggers an
    ambush when you get close that will automatically kill Pang Tong, if you're not
    playing as him.
    
    By this time, Zhang Fei and the others will probably have entered the fort at
    the bottom of the map, which will trigger Gao Pei to appear to their east. You
    can probably bypass all of the soldiers in the middle and make your way down to
    the fort, or you can start fighting the soldiers in the middle. If you go to the
    fort, take out the subofficers, then go after Liu Xun to conquer the fortress.
    
    ------------
    CHARACTERS 2
    ------------
    Go forward and get inside the fort just ahead of you. Once inside, take out any
    of Liu Xun's subofficers you come across, as well as the checkpoint and Liu Xun
    himself. When you enter the fort, Gao Pei will appear behind your position, so
    double back and take care of him. Once Gao Pei and Liu Xun are gone, you should
    probably head over to where Liu Bei is located to take out the officers who have
    shown up there (Zhang Yi, Leng Bao and Liu Han). If Pang Tong hasn't started
    heading towards Zhang Ren, go and defeat him if you want Pang Tong to stay
    alive.
    -------------------------
    
    Your final goal is to defeat Liu Zhang, but you won't have access to him until
    Cheng Du is surrounded. If there are any officers left outside of the castle,
    then go and take care of them now. Once Cheng Du is surrounded and the gates
    open up, go inside and take out the checkpoint and any archers nearby. Once that
    is done, all you have left is Liu Zhang.

    ----- Shu vs. Wei
    ----- Characters: Guan Ping, Huang Zhong, Pang Tong, Wei Yan, Xing Cai
    
    When the battle starts, go up to the mountaintop and take out Xiahou Shang, the
    supply base and lastly, Xiahou De to take it over. From there, you can either
    head down the northern path, the southern one or the eastern one. If you take
    the southern one, take out both attack bases, Yue Jin and Zhang He and head
    north. If you take the northern one, defeat Cao Xiu and eliminate the attack
    base, then start heading south. Eventually, you'll run into Xiahou Yuan, who
    can be a bit on the tough side on this stage. He goes into hyper mode, uses
    the Defense x2 powerup a lot and even uses a Musou Rage when low on health.
    Once you defeat him, take out any other officers outside of Wei's main camp,
    then start fighting your way there. Eventually, Cao Cao will show up, along with
    Cao Zhang, so that will be your chance to finish the stage.

    ------------
    Charge forward and you'll eventually run into Niu Jin, so defeat him, then take
    the defense base and Cao Ren's other subofficer, Yue Jin. Soon after this, Yu
    Jin will charge your position, so defeat him and start making your way south,
    taking out the nearby checkpoint in the process. By now, the water attack should
    have happened, meaning that Cao Ren is cut off for the moment. Continue going
    south, taking out bases and officers as you approach them. The first of
    reinforcements to show up will be Xu Huang, just east of Pang De's position.
    Feel free to go up there and take him out, but be aware that there will be some
    more reinforcements coming in from the south.
    
    ------------
    CHARACTERS 2
    ------------
    Once the battle starts, take out the nearby defense base. After that, you can
    head up north and take out the soldiers that are charging Guan Ping, including
    both of Cao Ren's subofficers. Take out the defense base and Yu Jin, then start
    heading south and taking out the bases and officers you come across. Eventually,
    Xu Huang will show up east of Pang De's position and will go into hyper mode
    only for Guan Yu, taking a bit longer than normal to defeat him. Take out the
    rest of the troops in the south, then head north and defeat Xu Huang.
    
    ------------
    CHARACTERS 3
    ------------
    When the stage starts, go east and take out the defense base, then the
    checkpoint and supply base farther on. You'll run into one of Jiang Ji's
    subofficers near the checkpoint beyond the supply base, so defeat him, seal the
    checkpoint and finish off Jiang Ji, making sure to get the other checkpoints
    near him. Start heading north and taking out the bases and checkpoints as you
    come to them. Eventually, the water attack will happen, so the Wei forces will
    move forward slightly to get to higher ground. Also, Xu Huang will show up east
    of Pang De's position, so go there and defeat him, then wait for the Wu
    reinforcements to show up.
    -------------------------
    
    If the Wu reinforcements still haven't shown up by now, go ahead and start
    fighting Pang De, who is a monster on this stage. He goes to hyper mode, uses
    the Attack x2 powerup a lot, and uses multiple Musou Rages if given the chance.
    Once the Wu reinforcements show up, some of their troops will go to where Mi
    Fang and Fu Shi Ren are and cause them to defect. Eventually, Guan Yu will be
    lead into an ambush and will be killed (of course, if you're playing as Guan Yu,
    it won't matter), making Zhang Fei the commander. They will run to a checkpoint
    nearby and escape, so if you want to kill them, you'll have to be fast. Once all
    of the Wu reinforcements are gone, finish off Pang De to make a bridge appear so
    you can go and defeat Cao Ren.

    CHARACTERS 1
    ------------
    Go north and take out the supply base, then seal the checkpoint north of there.
    Near the checkpoint, you should encounter Ma Zhong, so defeat him and head a bit
    northeast from there to where Han Dang is located. Defeat him and then head east
    from there to take out the supply base and checkpoint just north of the fort
    where Liu Bei is. Once those are gone, head a little east to find a drawbridge
    that isn't down yet. Wait here until Zhu Ran puts it down (if you have a lot of
    arrows, you can try and take out Ling Tong while waiting).
    
    ------------
    CHARACTERS 2
    ------------
    The first thing you should do is seal the nearby checkpoint and take out the
    supply base. After that, head to the west (Zhu Zhi will be in the way, so put
    him down) and take out Han Dang. Head a little farther west and take out Ma
    Zhong, as well as sealing the checkpoint there. Head east now to where the
    raised bridge is located and wait (Ling Tong will come over and stand near it,
    so defeat him if you have enough arrows) until Zhu Ran lowers it.
    
    ------------
    CHARACTERS 3
    ------------
    Start heading southeast once the battle begins, homing in on Pan Zhang's
    position. You should come across his subofficer (Zhu Huan) in the narrow passage
    near where you start. Take both supply bases, defeat Pan Zhang and seal the
    checkpoint nearby. Once you're done there, head to where Liu Bei's fort is and
    seal the checkpoint there, as well as taking the supply base. Head a little east
    from there and wait until Zhu Ran drops the drawbridge (kill Ling Tong with
    arrows while you wait, if you have enough).
    -------------------------
    
    Once the bridge is down, Zhu Ran will begin his little journey to the deadend
    area just to the southeast. He will completely ignore you, so make sure you
    defeat him as soon as possible. If Ling Tong and Gan Ning meet up with you, they
    will go into hyper mode for as long as Zhu Ran is alive, so defeating Zhu Ran
    will make them go back to normal. Once Zhu Ran is gone, defeat Ling Tong (if
    still alive) and Gan Ning, then head a little north and take out Jiang Qin. Go
    back to the east and defeat Lu Xun, then go a little southeast to take out Sun
    Shang Xiang and Cheng Pu, if they are still alive. Zhang Cheng will show up as
    a reinforcement south of Wu's main camp (subofficer is in the northwest corner),
    so go down and defeat him if you want. Once he's gone, all that is left for you
    to do is finish off Sun Quan.

    ------------
    When the stage starts, go to the west and take out the defense base. This will
    eliminate the beast unit that shows up to the east, since Yue Ying's juggernauts
    appear. By now, Meng Huo will probably show up in the same area as you are in
    now, so defeat him and he'll withdraw for now.
    
    ------------
    CHARACTERS 2
    ------------
    Once the battle starts, go east a bit and take out the attack base. The enemy
    beast unit should have shown up now in the area just to the east. To get rid of
    it, all you have to do is take the defense base in the eastern section of the
    area. Yue Ying will bring forth her juggernauts, which will cause all of the
    elephant-riding Nanman and the tigers to withdraw. Meng Huo will probably appear
    in the area now, so defeat him and he'll withdraw.

    Go forward and take the defense base just ahead, which will trigger an event
    that has a bridge formed over the poisonous swamp. Try and lure King Duosi onto
    the bridge, then eliminate him and make your way to the central section in the
    north. This will trigger the beast unit, so take the defense base in the
    northeast to get rid of them. Get rid of any enemy officers in the area, as well
    as the multiple appearances of Meng Huo, then make your way to the path leading
    southwest out of the poison marsh.
    -------------------------
    
    Just west of the path leading down the middle is one of the three shortcuts that
    the Nanman use. Going inside the shortcut will place it on your map, so make use
    of these later in the battle. Meng Huo's 2nd appearance is at the northwest
    corner of the poison swamp and will make his way onto the narrow path. Defeat
    Ahui Nan, Dong Tu Na and Meng Huo, and check the walls around the first bend to
    find the second of the three shortcuts. Meng Huo will appear for the third time
    in the northwest corner of the map, so double back there and defeat him.
    
    Make your way to the path that leads southwest out of the poison marsh and take
    out Jinhuan Sanjie. Meng Huo appears for the fourth time (provided you've beaten
    him the other three times) at the end of this path. When you enter the next
    area, you will trigger the appearance of the "invincible" armor troops, which
    have a very high defense. Zhuge Liang will summon a task force that will set
    explosive pots that explode a few seconds after they are hit, instantly killing
    any of the armor troops. The first thing you should do is take the attack base
    in the middle of the area, then seal the checkpoint on the west side. Defeating
    Wu Tugu will get rid of the armor troops, so do that after the previous two
    things.
    
    Meng Huo will appear for the fifth time in the shortcut just north of the armor
    troops area. Getting rid of the armor troops will cause Zhu Rong to charge into
    that area, via the shortcut to the south. Meng Huo will appear for the 6th time
    where Zhu Rong was initially positioned and will also go to the armor troops
    area via the hidden path. The first reinforcements for the Nanman forces to
    show up will be Dailai Dongzhu in the area to the northwest of the armor troops
    area. The second reinforcements will show up at the area just northeast of the
    poison marsh. Meng Huo's last appearance will be at the southeast corner of the
    map and the stage will end when you defeat him there. He will show up at this
    location regardless of how many times you have defeated him if you defeat Meng
    You in the southwest corner of the map.

                               (  BATTLE OF TIAN SHUI  )
                                \=====================/
    
    ----- Shu vs. Wei
    ----- Characters 1: Jiang Wei
          Characters 2: Wei Yan
          Characters 3: Yue Ying, Zhuge Liang
    
    ------------
    CHARACTERS 1 (Start to finish)
    ------------
    This is a special case because Jiang Wei fought for Wei in this battle until
    Zhuge Liang convinced him to join the ranks of Shu. Jiang Wei will experience a
    completely different battle than the other three characters. The first thing you
    should do in this battle is save An Ding and Nan An from being captured by Shu.
    That means you should defeat, in no particular order, Zhang Bao, Zhao Yun, Wang
    Ping, and Guan Xing. You'll probably encounter Ma Dai first though, as he is
    located in the passage that leads to An Ding. Once you have saved An Ding and
    Nan An, head for Wei Yan and defeat him.
    
    If either one of the castles fall, then a fake Jiang Wei (pretty much an exact
    clone) will appear in front of Tian Shui and will cause some suspicions with Ma
    Zun. Defeat him to put those suspicions to rest. It should be noted that there
    is one reinforcement in this battle that has a special requirement. If both
    castles fall and Ma Zun's morale falls enough, then he will attempt to run away.
    This will trigger Gao Xiang to appear in the northeast corner. You shouldn't try
    to make this happen, as Ma Zun will get lost and run straight into Shu's main
    camp. Once all other officers are finished, all that is left is to defeat Zhuge
    Liang.
    
    ------------
    CHARACTERS 2
    ------------
    As soon as the battle starts, go into An Ding Castle and defeat Cui Liang. You
    should also seal the checkpoint on the east side of the castle. After that, go
    to the north and seal that checkpoint, then go to the south and take the defense
    base, as well as defeating Wang Lang. Head to the east and take out Han De, then
    Xiahou Mao which secures Nan An Castle for Shu.
    
    ------------
    CHARACTERS 3
    ------------
    Once the battle begins, go into Nan An Castle and defeat Xiahou Mao. Seal the
    checkpoint on the west side of the castle, then go to the north and take out
    Han De, as well as the supply base there. Go to the west and take out Cui Liang,
    which will secure An Ding Castle.
    -------------------------
    
    When Jiang Wei mentions that he is going to head back to Tian Shui Castle, that
    is your time to confront him. If he manages to make it back to Tian Shui, then
    a few reinforcements (Cao Zhen, Cao Ren and Zhang He) will show up for Wei.
    Note that Jiang Wei goes into hyper mode when you meet up with him, so it will
    take a little longer than usual to kill him. If you defeat him before he manages
    to make it back, then Ma Zun will accept Jiang Wei's "defection." If both Nan An
    and An Ding have fallen, then Ma Zun will begin to retreat. The victory
    conditions will change if this happens, making it that you will lose if Ma Zun
    somehow gets to the escape point. Catch up to him and defeat him to capture
    Tian Shui Castle. Once all three castles are yours (you can only defeat Ma Zun),
    then the stage will end.
    
    
                                /====================\
                               (  BATTLE OF JIE TING  )
                                \====================/
    
    ----- Shu vs. Wei
    ----- Characters 1: Jiang Wei, Wei Yan
          Characters 2: Ma Chao, Xing Cai
    
    ------------
    CHARACTERS 1
    ------------
    Once the stage begins, go forward and take out Fei Yao and Wang Lang. After
    that, head towards the foot of the mountain. Defeat Cao Zhen and seal the
    checkpoint to secure the foot of the mountain. This causes some of Sima Yi's
    troops to move towards the base and try to recapture it, but it's not a big
    threat right now, so don't worry about it.
    
    ------------
    CHARACTERS 2
    ------------
    As soon as the battle starts, immediately seal the checkpoint near your
    position, then journey to the east and take out Cao Hong, the supply base and
    Zhen Ji if she goes south. Go northwest, taking out Fei Yao and Wang Lang on the
    way, to the base of the mountain and take out Cao Zhen and seal the checkpoint
    to secure the foot. This will cause Sima Yi to move towards the foot to try and
    recapture it, but your army should hold him at bay for now.
    -------------------------
    
    Once you have captured the foot, head up to the summit and defeat Zhang He,
    saving Ma Su in the process. Eventually, Xu Zhu will show up just a bit
    southeast of Wei's main camp and will move towards your main camp, so make sure
    you intercept him and defeat him. Head back down the mountain, via the path near
    and sealing the checkpoint at the bottom, then go and take out Sima Yi. If Cao
    Pi hasn't shown up by now, defeating Sima Yi will. All that's left after Cao Pi
    shows up is to clear out the rest of the officers on the map and then Cao Pi
    himself.
    
    
                                /=====================\
                               (  BATTLE OF CHEN CANG  )
                                \=====================/
    
    ----- Shu vs. Wei
    ----- Characters: Huang Zhong, Jiang Wei, Wei Yan, Yue Ying, Zhuge Liang
    
    When the battle starts, journey to the base of the huge wall before you and
    start fighting. All three of Cao Ren's subofficers are located at the base of
    the wall, so find them and defeat them. You should also watch out for the
    cannons at the base of the wall, which can take off a huge chunk of your health
    if you're not careful. Jiang Wei will try to send some siege weapons, but they
    will inevitably get destroyed by the castle's defenses. That is where Zhuge
    Liang will take over and send out some weapons to destroy the castle defenses.
    By this time, a bunch of soldiers will begin pouring over the wall on the east
    side and will include Xiahou Ba, so if you want to get him now is the chance.
    From here, you can either head up the right side of the map or go to the left
    side and take out the subofficer in front of the gate.
    
    There will be five sets of reinforcements in this battle, all along the southern
    edge of the map. The first two show up in the southwest and southeast (Cao Xiu
    and Cao Hong, respectively). Once the siege ramp preparations are complete, go
    up them (your horse can go up them, but not down so leave them on the ground)
    and take out the two checkpoints on the east and west sides of that area. Next,
    defeat Cao Ren (in hyper mode) and Zhang He, then start fighting your way
    towards Sima Yi, but don't stray too far from the ramps as the next set of
    reinforcements should be showing up soon. Cao Zhen shows up in the southwest,
    Guo Huai shows up in the southeast and Xu Zhu will show up south of the central
    defense base down there. All that's left after that is to go and defeat Sima Yi.
    
    
                              /=========================\
                             (  BATTLE OF BAI DI CASTLE  )
                              \=========================/
    
    ----- Shu vs. Wu
    ----- Characters 1: Liu Bei, Ma Chao, Pang Tong, Xing Cai
          Characters 2: Huang Zhong
          Characters 3: Jiang Wei
    
    ------------
    CHARACTERS 1
    ------------
    First thing you should do when the battle starts is take out the attack base and
    seal the checkpoint just south of the castle. Both Han Dang and Zhang Cheng
    should be in the area, so take them out. By now, Sun Shao will probably move
    into the area, so take him out. The peasants have probably shown up by now, so
    go west and assist them by taking out any subofficers in the region. Once you
    do that, they will retreat back and protect the castle, as will Ma Chao. Zhou
    Tai should start moving south, so go north a bit and quickly take him and his
    subofficer out. Once done there, either head to the southeast corner to take out
    Huang Gai or head to the Stone Sentinel Maze to defeat Chen Wu and Lu Xun.
    
    ------------
    CHARACTERS 2
    ------------
    When the stage starts, seal the nearby checkpoint and start driving your way
    down the right side of the map. Take out the supply base and the checkpoint,
    then defeat Huang Gai. By now, the peasants should have shown up southwest of
    Bai Di Castle, so rush over there and help them (take the attack base and the
    checkpoint along the way) by taking out any subofficers you find. Zhou Tai will
    begin moving south now, so take him out as well. If the Wu reinforcements
    haven't arrived yet, feel free to go to the north and help out Jiang Wei at the
    Stone Sentinel Maze.
    
    ------------
    CHARACTERS 3
    ------------
    When the stage starts, go through the Stone Sentinel Maze and defeat Chen Wu and
    his subofficer. Leave the maze, via the west exit, and go south to the area just
    past where Zhou Tai and Ma Chao are. When the peasants show up, defeat any
    subofficers in the region and they should retreat back to the castle, as will
    Ma Chao. Go north now and take out Zhou Tai and Xu Sheng, then you can either
    clear out the southeast corner or go and help out Jiang Wei in the Stone Maze.
    If Lu Xun is already in the maze, then defeat both Chen Wu and Lu Xun as they
    will probably end up defeating Jiang Wei if together. If he hasn't arrived yet
    at the maze, I suggest going to help out Huang Zhong in the southeast, as Huang
    Gai and his two subofficers will probably be ganging up on him now.
    -------------------------
    
    At around 10 minutes or so into the battle, reinforcements will show up for Wu
    in the southeast corner (Gan Ning) and just north of the southwest corner (Pan
    Zhang). If you haven't defeated Huang Gai, now might be the best chance to do
    so. Also, these reinforcements might make short work of your officers, as they
    have pretty high unit morale. When any of your troops manage to get close to the
    northwest corner, they will find out that Sun Quan is not really there and he
    will really appear in the southwest corner. When all other officers are gone,
    make your way towards Sun Quan and finish him off.

    ------------
    CHARACTERS 1
    ------------
    When the stage starts, go into the area just to the north and take out both
    attack bases to secure the supply line. The wooden supply oxen will appear about
    now, so go to the west side of the map and help clear a path for them. You
    should get a message when they've reached the frontlines. It will be helpful if
    you seal the two checkpoints over on the west side of the map, as the one seems
    to pour out a lot of enemies as your forces are trying to break through the
    supply base on that side.
    
    ------------
    CHARACTERS 2
    ------------
    When the stage starts, progress to the north and defeat Guo Huai. On the way,
    you should get the cutscene where the wooden transport oxen have arrived, and it
    is your duty to protect them until they get to the frontlines. Take the first
    eastern path you see, defeating Wang Lang and Cao Rui when they appear, until
    the oxen get to where they need to go (seal the checkpoints on the left side of
    the map, one just south of the supply base and one southeast of that one). Once
    in the middle of the map, take out the two attack bases and any other officers
    nearby.
    -------------------------
    
    Eventually, reinforcements will come in the form of Zhong Hui, who will probably
    end up inching his way down the right side of the map, devastating any of your
    forces in the way. Kill him as soon as you have a free chance to do so, then
    start moving your way towards the mass of soldiers at the north of the map. Two
    more big events will happen: Deng Ai will appear just northwest of the western
    supply base and will set up catapults when he reaches about where Cao Ren is.
    He will be in hyper mode when he sets up the catapults, but that's pretty much
    all that he gets. The other big event is the death of Zhuge Liang (doesn't
    happen if playing as Yue Ying or Zhuge Liang), which will put Jiang Wei as
    commander and have a big effect on your morale.
    
    As you get close to the path that leads to Xiahou Ba, he will order a rockslide
    that will stop once he is defeated. Likewise, Sima Zhao will trigger an ambush
    when you get close to him. Once Zhong Hui and the catapults are stopped,
    systematically take out each officer as you come upon them as you make your way
    towards Sima Yi. Defeat each subofficer on each side of him, as well as sealing
    the checkpoints, then go after Sima Yi for the finale.

    ----- Allies vs. Dong Zhuo
    ----- Characters: Pang De
    
    When the stage begins, go forth and take out the defense base a bit southeast of
    your initial position and Zhao Cen, who should be close as well. Notice that
    Dong Zhuo isn't at the battle yet, but he'll arrive once enough times passes or
    you get close enough to the fort at the southeast corner. After taking out the
    defense base, go to the southwest corner and clear out that attack base, as well
    as Niu Fu. By now, you'll be given orders to take out the enemy checkpoints in
    the central south and central east to avoid letting reinforcements come. You're
    closer to the southern one, so go there and take out Xu Rong and the checkpoint.
    
    From the last checkpoint, you can move on over to the eastern one to cut off the
    reinforcements there. By now, Dong Zhuo should have already shown up or will
    show up shortly in the southeast fortress. If he has shown up, it's too late now
    to take out the northeast base to call in for your reinforcements, but if he
    hasn't, then hurry there and quickly take it out. Once he does show up, he'll
    eventually call in two officers as reinforcements in the northeast/southwest
    corners. Go there and take them out, then make your way to defeat Dong Zhuo and
    finish the stage.
    
    
                            /=============================\
                           (  THE YELLOW TURBAN REBELLION  )

    ----- Allies vs. Yellow Turbans
    ----- Characters: Cao Cao, Dian Wei
    
    When the stage starts, take the nearby supply base and start edging your way up
    the eastern path. When you get close enough, Zhang Liang will summon a whirlwind
    in the narrow path in the southeast. Lure Gao Sheng out of the area with the
    wind, then defeat him and blaze past the wind (it really hurts). Seal the
    checkpoint first, then go ahead and defeat Zhang Liang. Journey into the middle
    area and take out the officer there; if you give him enough time, he will
    "convert" some of Sun Jian's troops.
    
    After you defeat Zhang Man Cheng, head to the northwest corner of the map and
    take out Zhang Bao (he conjurs up a rockslide when anyone gets close). Start
    heading along the northern path, taking the horseshoe path to defeat He Yi,
    until you get to Zhang Jiao's fortress. When any of the gates open up, he will
    summon forth a phantom army, which can be destroyed by breaking the four
    pulsating pedestals on the altar in front of Zhang Jiao. Once that is done, take
    out both of Zhang Jiao's subofficers and the three checkpoints, then move on to
    Zhang Jiao. He goes into hyper mode and uses the Attack x2 powerup, but he's
    still pretty easy as long as you don't get hit by his fire attacks.
    
    
                               /========================\

    ----- Allies vs. Dong Zhuo
    ----- Characters: Zhang Liao
    
    Zhang Liao was a part of Dong Zhuo's forces for a few battles, so you'll be
    fighting against the alliance here. When the stage starts, take the attack base
    in the middle of the map. There will be quite a few subofficers in the middle
    area, so search them out and defeat them. Once you're done there, head towards
    the northeastern defense base. Take it and Sun Jian's unit (if still alive) will
    fall back a bit. Seal the nearby checkpoint and take out Yuan Shu to take the
    supply provisions.
    
    Eventually, Cao Cao will appear with reinforcements in the southwest corner and
    will head straight towards Si Shui Gate, so make sure you go back and protect
    the gate from falling. Once you defeat Cao Cao, head back to the fun in the
    southeast corner and take out the rest of the enemy troops, including Yuan Shao
    to end the stage.
    
    
                               /=======================\

          Characters 2: Cao Cao, Dian Wei, Xu Zhu
    
    ------------
    CHARACTERS 1 (start to finish)
    ------------
    When the stage starts, go forward and seal the checkpoint, then defeat the two
    subofficers you find the area. Once you do that, Zhang Liao will declare himself
    and Yuan Shao will try to find another means to get through Hu Lao Gate. Journey
    to the front area of Hu Lao and begin taking out every subofficer you find, as
    well as sealing the two checkpoints. Liu Bei will also wander into the area, so
    defeat him when you get the chance. When Lu Bu says something along the lines of
    "Is there no one else who can challenge me," the Allied troops will begin to
    fall back.
    
    From here, you can go one of two ways. You can take the east path that splits 
    north and south or you can take the south path, which will lead to Cao Cao. If
    you take the path that forks, use the south path that leads to the center. Take
    out both defense bases, as well as Gongsun Yue, Gongsun Zan and Sun Jian. From
    there, you can head to the west and take out Cao Cao and the attack base. At
    around the 11-minute mark, more or less, Wen Chou and Yan Liang will show up
    over on that side of the map, so defeat them when you get a chance. Once they
    are finished, all that's left is to take out the rest of the officers on the
    map, then Yuan Shao himself.

    CHARACTERS 2 (start to finish)
    ------------
    You are the only unit on the field at the moment, but the rest of your army will
    show up shortly. Go forward and take out the attack base, then journey into the
    empty area after that to trigger an ambush. Take out Li Su, then go and take out
    Li Ru and the attack base in the next area. You can either go straight to the
    area in front of Hu Lao Gate or go into the middle next. If you go into the
    middle, take out the defense base first, then go after Niu Fu.
    
    Go through the next defense base and continue onward toward Hu Lao Gate (Liu
    Bei's troops have probably taken out Xu Rong by now). Take out the officers you
    find in the area. If the first gate to Hu Lao opens up, Lu Bu will show up. He
    goes into hyper mode when you meet up with him, uses the Attack x2 powerup and
    also uses a Musou Rage, so be careful if you want to try and beat him. If you
    want to heed Yuan Shao's advice, take the detour, capture the defense base and
    defeat Zhang Liao, then you can penetrate Hu Lao from that direction.
    Eventually, Fan Chou will appear with reinforcements in the southeast, so double
    back and defeat him, then take out Dong Zhuo to finish the stage.

    ----- Cao Cao vs. Zhang Xiu
    ----- Characters: Dian Wei
    
    Your first priority, upon the stage's start, is to meet up with Cao Cao. If you
    take a long time to meet up with him, he'll get injured by the flames. Once you
    do meet up with him, you'll now have to escort him to the escape point. When you
    get to the southeast corner, Hu Che Er will show up, so quickly defeat him and
    go back to getting to the escape point. Once you get near the escape point, Jia
    Xu will show up and upon his defeat, Cao Cao will start escaping. It is now your
    goal to make sure Cao Cao's escape is successful. Stand guard near the escape
    point and task forces will attempt and disrupt the escape. If too many task
    leaders make it past you, you will lose. Two will show up at a time, but just
    stay at the escape point and you should have no problem dispatching the task
    forces when they approach you. If one manages to sneak past you, then that will
    progress time enough so that Zhang Xiu will appear. If he appears, simply beat
    him and go back to work on protecting the escape point.

    ------------
    When the stage begins, take out the two checkpoints nearby, then head south.
    Soon, Hou Cheng and Song Xian will call for help, so head their way. Defeat both
    Li Dian and Yu Jin to make Xiahou Dun and Yuan charge towards you, then defeat
    them when they get near you. Go south now and defeat Liu Bei, then work your
    way east and take out Guan Yu and lastly Zhang Fei. When too much time passes or
    all other officers on the map are defeated, Cao Cao will finally show up in the
    southwest corner (Cao Hong shows up in the northeast). Of course, some soldiers
    on Lu Bu's side will open the north gate, which will cause Cao Cao to head to
    the northwest corner. Go through the castle, take out Cao Hong, then go to Cao
    Cao and finish him off.
    
    ------------
    CHARACTERS 2 (start to finish)
    ------------
    When the stage starts, take the defense base close by, then seal the checkpoint
    north of that. You should get a message about now that says you should attack
    the floodgate, but Gao Shun will go and reinforce it. If he manages to do it all
    the way, Yuan Shu will appear with a lot of reinforcements in the southeast. If
    you kill Gao Shun, the castle will be flooded and Yuan Shu will not come to Lu
    Bu's aid.
    
    Head to the northwest corner and take out the checkpoint and Zang Ba, then start
    heading east. Take out Zhang Liao and his subofficer when you get near them,
    then head towards the gate and defeat Gao Shun. Because of this mess for Lu Bu,
    Hou Cheng, Song Xian and Wei Xu will defect to your side. Some soldiers inside
    Xia Pi will also get scared and open up the north gate. Head inside, seal the
    two gates and take out both subofficers, then head after Lu Bu. If you have done
    everything from before, Lu Bu will probably run away, only to be captured by his
    own troops.

    CHARACTERS 1 (start to finish)
    ------------
    When the stage starts, head for the two bases near you and take them out. You'll
    get the bonus of having Cao Zhang in the eastern of the two. From here, you can
    either head down the west side of the map, defeating Zhu Ling and taking the
    supply base, or you can head through the defense base and take out Xiahou Dun.
    Shortly after the stage starts, Guan Yu will charge towards Yan Liang and kill
    him shortly after that. This causes Wen Chou to charge Guan Yu, who also suffers
    defeat at the hands of the God of War.
    
    Whenever you get close enough to the castle in the south, there will be an event
    where Yuan Shao sets up siege ramps to take down the castle's walls. This will
    cause Cao Cao to begin firing the catapults from atop the walls. When you
    defeat Cao Pi and Li Dian in front of the castle, some of Cao Cao's troops will
    open the side gates. Once they open the gates, head inside and take
    out the two checkpoints, as well as all three subofficers, then head for Cao Cao
    and finish him off.
    
    ------------
    CHARACTERS 2
    ------------
    When the stage begins, head along the small path and seal the checkpoint there.
    Continue heading east and take out the defense base, as well as Han Meng. Now,
    I suggest going back to the west and taking out any officers you find in the
    area where the attack base is located, then take the attack base. Eventually,
    the Wu Chao supply depot will be opened, so head there when you get a chance and
    defeat Chunyu Qiong. By now, some of Yuan Shao's troops will have moved in close
    to the castle in the south, so head down there and clear them out (if the siege
    ramps are there, take them out as well).
    
    ------------
    CHARACTERS 3
    ------------
    When the stage starts, go forward and defeat Han Meng as well as taking out the
    attack base. Go west from there and seal the checkpoint, then continue heading
    west and take out the officers near the attack base (Wen Chou is one).
    Eventually, the Wu Chao supply depot will be opened, so head there when you get
    a chance and defeat Chunyu Qiong. By now, some of Yuan Shao's troops will have
    moved in close to the castle in the south, so head down there and clear them out
    (if the siege ramps are there, take them out as well).
    
    ------------
    CHARACTERS 4
    ------------
    Head forward when the stage begins and seal the nearby checkpoint, then head
    north and take out the attack base. Continue going north, taking out Lu Kuang,
    and take out the next attack base. Zhen Ji should be just north of there, so
    take her out and Yuan Xi should be approaching soon, so defeat him as well. Now
    you can start heading east and taking out officers one by one as you come to
    them. Eventually, the Wu Zhao supply depot's doors will open up, so head there
    when you get a chance and defeat Chunyu Qiong.
    -------------------------
    
    Because of earlier events with Guan Yu, Liu Bei will retreat into the northeast
    corner and will stay there for the duration of the battle. When it's just him
    and Yuan Shao left, head to Liu Bei and defeat him and Jian Yong. Once he's
    finished, head into Yuan Shao's camp and seek out his subofficers. Seal the two
    checkpoints there, then go and face off with Yuan Shao. There's nothing special
    about him, so defeating him should be easy.

    ----- Cao Cao vs. Guan Yu
    ----- Characters: Xiahou Dun
    
    This stage can be a bit of a pain because there is an extra timer in which you
    must keep an eye on. If at anytime throughout the stage you come into contact
    with Guan Yu, the rest of the officers will come and help out in trying to
    exterminate you. Also, if you manage to destroy the carriage, the rest of the
    officers will go into hyper mode. When the stage begins, progress normally,
    taking out both Liao Hua and Zhou Cang.
    
    Zhao Yun will be present at the second gate, so take him out and move on. At the
    third gate, you will find Guan Ping so make short work of him. Zhang Fei will
    be at the fourth gate, so take him out and move on. In between the fourth and
    fifth gates will be Liu Bei, who is the last officer other than Guan Yu. Once
    you defeat all other officers besides Guan Yu, that will be your cue to destroy
    the carriage. Once you do that, go and take out Guan Yu to finish the stage.
    
    
                                /=====================\

    ----- Cao Cao vs. Liu Bei
    ----- Characters: Dian Wei, Xiahou Dun, Xu Huang, Xu Zhu
    
    Your first objective is to defeat Zhao Yun, who starts out in the northwest
    corner of the map in the middle of your forces. He goes into hyper mode when
    you confront him, so it may take a little more time than usual to defeat him.
    This also serves as another purpose; Zhang Fei will be guarding the Chang Ban
    bridge near the beginning of the battle. He is pretty similar to Lu Bu, in terms
    of abilities (Musou Rage and the fixings), so it would be a very tough battle.
    Defeating Zhao Yun turns Zhang Fei back to normal, so he's just like any other
    general. Go south again, across the bridge, and take out the attack base there.
    
    After you do that, journey to the southern passage and claim the two neutral
    defense bases down there. This will play into the battle a little later, so
    get back to the middle and start slaying. About 5 minutes into the battle, Guan
    Yu will show up in the southwest corner. Defeat him and seal the two checkpoints
    there, then head to the southeast corner. About 9-10 minutes into the battle,
    Liu Qi will show up with reinforcements in the southeast corner, securing an
    escape point for Liu Bei. If you procured that defense base in the south
    passage, then Liu Bei won't be going anywhere for a while. Once you defeat Liu
    Qi, all that's left to do is go back and take out Liu Bei.

    CHARACTERS 1
    ------------
    When the stage starts, go south and defeat Chen Wu, then seal the nearby
    checkpoint. Start heading west now, taking checkpoints and defeating officers
    you find on the way. When you reach Pang Tong, quickly defeat him and start
    heading towards the altar in the southwest corner. Once you reach the altar,
    defeat Zhuge Liang and then seal the checkpoint just south of there. Keep
    fighting normally until Zhou Yu orders Huang Gai to get to the ship. This is
    your cue to rush towards Huang Gai and defeat him. He is in hyper mode, so it
    might take a little longer than usual to take him out. Once you do kill him, all
    three stages of the fire attack will be thwarted, which will cause a huge boost
    in your army's morale.
    
    ------------
    CHARACTERS 2
    ------------
    Follow Pang Tong at the beginning of the battle until he defects from Cao Cao's
    army, then defeat him. After you do that, head to the southwest corner and
    defeat Zhuge Liang at the altar to put a halt to the prayer. Continue playing
    the battle out like normal until Huang Gai appears just east of Zhou Yu. That's
    your cue to rush towards him and take him out before he can manage to reach the
    suspicious ship. The only problem you have to worry about is that he'll
    sometimes ignore you and continue marching, but it shouldn't take too long.
    
    ------------
    CHARACTERS 3
    ------------
    When the stage begins, seal the nearby checkpoint and start heading to the
    southwest corner. Defeat Xu Sheng and Pan Zhang on the way, then get onto the
    altar and take out Zhuge Liang. After the prayer is stopped, head towards Pang
    Tong's position and defeat him; he defects at the beginning. Continue playing
    the battle out like normal until Huang Gai appears just east of Zhou Yu. That's
    your cue to rush towards him and take him out before he can manage to reach the
    suspicious ship. The only problem you have to worry about is that he'll
    sometimes ignore you and continue marching, but it shouldn't take too long.
    -------------------------
    
    Once you take care of the three stages of the fire attack, it's time to clean
    up the rest of the map. Start by hunting down any subofficers that are still on
    the map, then go after the generals. You should leave Zhou Yu for last, simply
    because once he is defeated, Sun Quan's unit will show up (Zhuge Jin shows up
    just before Sun Quan). Go after the reinforcements, then head back to Sun Quan
    to finish the stage.

    All four characters' walkthroughs are identical, although both Dian Wei and
    Zhang Liao start out in a different spot. The only difference between both sets
    is that Dian Wei and Zhang Liao have the three extra officers at the beginning.
    Once you defeat Pan Zhang, all four paths merge into the same stage.
    -----NOTE-----
    
    ------------
    CHARACTERS 1 
    ------------
    You start in a different location than where Cao Cao starts, plus there is also
    a first ambush unit on the map. It helps to have a horse ready for this
    battle, since you'll be running back and forth a little bit later on. Ride past
    the first set of troops until you encounter Ding Feng, so defeat him and
    continue on your journey to meet up with Cao Cao. The next person you'll meet is
    Xu Sheng, then Pan Zhang will be the last one before Cao Cao. As soon as you
    beat Pan Zhang, Cao Cao will begin marching towards the escape point, but Han
    Dang will show up on the boat there, so quickly defeat him and keep up with Cao
    Cao.
    -------------------------
    
    When Cao Cao reaches the very first corner, Cheng Pu will arrive to slow down
    his escape. Quickly defeat his subofficer and then him, then continue. The next
    ambush unit will appear when Cao Cao gets to about the middle of the southern
    path. Defeat Chen Wu and Zhu Zhi, then seal the checkpoint that appears. The
    next sets of reinforcements include Mi Zhu and Zhao Yun, then Jian Yong and
    Zhang Fei, and Zhou Cang/Guan Ping for the next set. Either during the fight
    with Guan Ping or just after defeating him, Sun Quan will show up in the
    southeast corner. At around the same time, Guan Yu will show up in the
    northcentral area, but due to his debts to Cao Cao, he lets him pass. At the
    same time that Guan Yu announces his retreat, Liu Bei will appear in the
    northeast corner. If you're playing as Cao Cao, you have to defeat both Liu Bei
    and Sun Quan, so you don't have a choice. I recommend that you go after Sun
    Quan and his subofficers first and if Liu Bei is still alive after you take out
    Sun Quan, go there and defeat him to secure Cao Cao's escape route.

    ------------
    CHARACTERS 1 (start to finish)
    ------------
    Your first priority is to take out any of the officers in front of Tong Gate.
    This includes Zhu Ling, Cao Hong and Xiahou Yuan. Also, you should take out the
    checkpoint and the two bases near the gate. Eventually, Cao Cao will start
    heading north, across the river and will try to hit Tong Gate from there. Take
    out Xu Zhu, who will "block" your pursuit of Cao Cao, then continue heading to
    the north. Xu Huang probably has arrived by this point and will go with Cao Cao.
    Also by this time, Han Sui will probably start heading north to confront Cao
    Cao's advance.
    
    When Cao Cao says something along the lines of they have to be careful not to
    get surrounded on both sides, Jia Xu will suggest talking to his old friend
    Han Sui. Eventually, Han Sui will defect to Cao Cao's side and a bunch of your
    generals will withdraw due to this. Take out Han Sui and any other officers in
    the area, including Cao Ren, who shows up as reinforcements in the northwest.
    After that, simply finish off Cao Cao to end the stage.
    
    ------------
    CHARACTERS 2 (start to finish)
    ------------
    When the stage starts, start taking out the officers and the bases in front of
    Tong Gate. Take out both defense bases, as well as Li Kan and Liang Xing. By
    this time, Cao Cao will begin advancing to the north and Ma Chao will give
    chase. This is your time to take out Ma Chao, but beware that he is in hyper
    mode, so it will take a bit longer than usual to defeat him. He also uses a
    Musou Rage when he gets low on health and uses the Attack x2 powerup
    periodically.
    
    Your next target is Pang De, who is a bit tougher than Ma Chao. He uses his
    Musou Rage earlier than Ma Chao does, but it's pretty much the same fight (he
    has the best officer introduction in the game on this stage). Once he has
    fallen, start taking out the rest of the officers one by one until only Han Sui
    is left. Eventually, Zhang Lu is come as reinforcements on the east side of the
    map, so go over there and take him out before taking out Han Sui.
    
    ------------
    CHARACTERS 3 (start to finish)
    ------------
    Rush forward when the stage starts and try to take the neutral attack base, but
    chances are that you won't be able to get it. If the enemy gets it, take it out
    of commission, then make your way towards the bridge and defeat Cheng Yi. Once
    you reach the northern area, take the three bases there and defeat Cheng Yin
    (seal the two checkpoints in the northwest corner as well). By this time, Ma Dai
    and Hou Xian will start heading towards your position. Defeat them both when you
    get a chance to do so.
    
    When Cao Cao starts heading north, Ma Chao will start chasing him, but luckily
    Xu Zhu will block the way. If he perishes, then he will head for Cao Cao's
    position, so defeat him if he gets there. Han Sui will eventually head into the
    northern sector and Cao Cao comes up with a plan to distract Han Sui and make
    the Allies become suspicious of him. Of course, this plan involves killing all
    other officers around him, which you should have done by now. When you do that,
    the Allies will become suspicious of Han Sui and will withdraw into Tong Gate.
    Defeat Han Sui now and start taking out any other officers on the map besides
    Pang De. Once they are all finished, it's time to go after Pang De. He is in
    hyper mode, uses the Defense x2 powerup and also a Musou Rage, so be careful.

    ----- Wei vs. Wu
    ----- Characters: Cao Cao, Cao Ren, Pang De, Xiahou Dun, Xu Huang, Zhang Liao
    
    Grab one of the neutral bases near you, then head into the middle area. Go to
    the southern part of that area and seal both checkpoints, then take the base in
    the middle. Once you take out Ding Feng and Ma Zhong, head slightly to the east
    and defeat Pan Zhang. By this time, Zhang Liao should have withdrawn, so Sun
    Quan will order the Wu army to charge. Take care of both of Zhu Zhi's
    subofficers, then Zhu Zhi himself and take out the base in that small area as
    well. Zhang Liao should have reappeared now, near Sun Quan, which will cause him
    to initiate a retreat, but only Taishi Ci and Lu Meng themselves will fall back.
    
    Because only those two fall back and not their subofficers, pick your choice
    and go after them. I suggest going after Taishi Ci's subs first, because Gan
    Ning will appear in the northcentral area later as reinforcements. Note that
    Gan Ning won't show up until after Cao Cao's unit has arrived, so it may take
    a bit of time before he does show up. When he does show up, I suggest rushing
    right over there and getting rid of him, as he'll go straight towards Cao Cao.
    He is in hyper mode and uses the Attack x2 powerup, so be a little careful that
    you don't get hit by his Musou if he tries to pull it off. After Gan Ning is
    gone, head to the southeast corner and lure both Lu Meng and Taishi Ci away from
    Sun Quan so you can take them out, then go after Sun Quan.

    ----- Wei vs. Shu
    ----- Characters: Pang De, Xiahou Yuan, Zhang He, Xu Zhu
    
    When the stage begins, journey into the middle area and simply let the officers
    come to you. Avoid going on the mountain where Huang Zhong is located, since he
    will charge down and might defeat Xiahou Yuan very quickly. The first person you
    should see is Chen Shi, so defeat him and continue waiting. Wu Lan will be your
    next victim, then there will probably be another waiting period. Take this time
    to take care of the checkpoints in the north and south, as well as the bases not
    situated on top of the summit. You could probably go and take out Zhao Yun in
    the south, along with a subofficer or two of Wei Yan's.
    
    Soon enough, Shu will begin its second advance. Defeat Lei Tong and Li Yan, who
    should be the next ones to come down the mountain. Once that is done, you can
    move to the northwest and take out Wei Yan. When Huang Zhong says something
    along the lines of tasting the blade of an expert warrior, he will begin moving.
    He is one tough officer on this stage, employing hyper mode, Defense x2 powerup
    throughout most of the fight and uses a Musou Rage. This is also the time that
    the rest of the officers, excluding Liu Bei, will begin moving, so take them
    out when you get a chance to. When either Xiahou Yuan or Huang Zhong is killed,
    Cao Cao will show up. Once all other officers are finished, the only one left
    will be Liu Bei.

                               (  BATTLE OF FAN CASTLE  )
                                \======================/
    
    ----- Wei/Wu vs. Shu
    ----- Characters: Cao Ren, Pang De, Sima Yi, Xiahou Dun, Xu Huang
    
    When the battle starts, no matter where you are positioned, head straight to the
    northeast to defeat Guan Ping, which will stop the water attack from ever
    happening. While you're there (watch out for the two groups of archers on the
    one side of the dam), Meng Da will come and bother you, so take him out as well.
    Once both of them are gone, take the nearby checkpoint and base and then head
    south to defeat Liu Feng. From here, head in a clockwise pattern, taking bases
    and checkpoints and defeating any officers you come upon.
    
    Eventually, reinforcements from Wu will appear in the southeast and your morale
    will boost even more. By this time, you should be down that way, so take out any
    officers that are still alive and continue west. The enemy will receive
    reinforcements in the form of Zhang Fei (and a subofficer) in the southwest
    fort. Both Zhang Fei and Guan Yu are in hyper mode for this stage, but that's
    the extent for Zhang Fei's abilities. Guan Yu will use powerups and also uses
    a Musou Rage when he's low on health, so be careful when confronting him.
    
    
                                 /====================\
                                (  BATTLE OF JIE TING  )

    ----- Wei vs. Shu
    ----- Characters 1: Cao Pi, Sima Yi, Zhen Ji
          Characters 2: Zhang He
    
    ------------
    CHARACTERS 1
    ------------
    Go north and take both checkpoints next to each other. Now, listen to what Zhang
    He says and move to capture the two strategic points at the base of the
    mountain. The first area is Gao Xiang, so head there and defeat his subofficer,
    then him and finally the checkpoint. This will secure that part of the mountain
    base, so head to the other point, taking out Zhang Bao on the way. Take out
    Guan Xing's sub, then Wang Ping and finally the checkpoint to capture that part.
    Jiang Wei should be nearby as well, so defeat him, but notice that he is in
    hyper mode.
    
    ------------
    CHARACTERS 2
    ------------
    Not too far along in the battle, Zhang He should mention that you should capture
    two strategic points along the mountain's base to isolate Ma Su at the top.
    Venture into the area where Wang Ping is located, then defeat his sub, him and
    take out the checkpoint there to take that area. Jiang Wei might be close by
    (he is in hyper mode), so defeat him and then head to the next strategic point,
    defeating Zhang Bao on the way. When you get to that part, defeat Gao Xiang's
    sub, Gao Xiang and seal the checkpoint to finally isolate Ma Su.
    -------------------------
    
    At this point in the battle, Ma Su will stop attacking from the summit. Head to
    the summit and take out any of his subofficers that still happen to be alive.
    If enough time passes, he'll eventually try to retreat to the southwest corner
    of the map, so try and defeat him beforehand. The stage isn't over until Zhuge
    Liang shows up, but there will be a few other reinforcements before he shows up.
    Wei Yan will show up in the southeast, Ma Chao in the southcentral and Xing Cai
    in the southwest. It is shortly after Xing Cai shows herself that Zhuge Liang
    will appear.

    ----- Characters 1: Zhang He
          Characters 2: Cao Ren, Sima Yi
    
    ------------
    CHARACTERS 1
    ------------
    When the battle begins, head north and take out the ram that is attacking the
    castle wall, then seal the enemy checkpoint nearby. Find Gao Xiang just a bit
    south of your position, then head out the eastern gate and defeat Wang Ping.
    Now, start heading down the passage on the east side of the map, defeating Ma
    Dai and Wei Yan when you come across them. When you reach the southeastern
    corner, take out the checkpoint and the defense base to stop the rams. Now you
    can start taking out the officers in the middle one by one. Take out the defense
    base there to stop the siege ramps from being spawned.
    
    ------------
    CHARACTERS 2
    ------------
    Go forward when the stage begins and seal the nearby checkpoint. Keeping an eye
    out for the archers in the towers (fire arrows), defeat Zhang Yi and head to the
    ground outside of the castle wall (can't ride horse down ramp, but can going
    up). Liao Hua should be close by, so defeat him and start inching your way
    closer to the defense bases along the southern part. Defeat Zhang Bao, Guan
    Xing and any other officers in the area. Seal the checkpoint in the southern
    central area, then take the defense base and do the same in the southeast
    corner.
    -------------------------
    
    The first reinforcement to show up will probably be Yue Ying, just south of the
    middle defense base. The second set of reinforcements to show up should be Jiang
    Wan in the southeast corner, so defeat him when you get a chance. Lastly, Zhuge
    Liang will appear in the southwest corner once enough time passes by. Clear the
    map of any other officers first, then take the defense base in the southwest
    corner and then go after Zhuge Liang to finish the stage.

    ----- Wei vs. Wu
    ----- Characters: Cao Cao, Cao Pi, Sima Yi, Xu Zhu, Zhen Ji
    
    When the stage starts, you'll have two direct paths to take, one leading to the
    right to Taishi Ci and the other leading to the left with Cheng Pu's troops.
    Head down the left path with Cheng Pu regardless of your starting position,
    since there will already be an officer heading down the right path. Take out the
    checkpoint nearby and start heading north along the path. Xu Sheng will be the
    first officer you confront, so dispatch him and continue on. If you're playing
    as Xu Zhu or Cao Cao, Zuo Ci will appear near where Sun Li is positioned, so
    take him out if you're playing as one of the above.
    
    Keep following the path from before until you meet up with Ding Feng, who should
    be taken care of, as well as the checkpoint near him. At around five minutes
    into the battle, the Wu navy will show up on the eastern side of the map and
    Cheng Pu and his sub, Ma Zhong, will begin marching into the castle. The ram
    should also be attacking the castle's gates at the southern end. A few minutes
    after the Wu navy arrives, Sun Shao will appear in the northwest corner. After
    defeating Cheng Pu, quickly rush to the front gate and destroy the ram, which
    should signal Lu Xun calling in another one from the east shortly after. Until
    he calls up the new ram, try and take out his subofficers lurking in front of
    the gate.
    
    By now, Man Chong should be gone and the combined forces of Taishi Ci, Jiang Qin
    and Pan Zhang should be inching their way closer to large middle area. Once you
    clear out the whole sea of red that probably has built up, head over to the west
    part of the map, which is where Lu Xun will probably be. After Lu Xun goes
    kaput, it's the final stretch of the battle. Head onto the Wu's main boats and
    fight your way to Zhou Tai, only to defeat him shortly after. Defeat Zhuge Jin
    and circle around the back of the boat to get Zhuge Luo, then defeat Sun Quan
    to end the stage.
    
    
                             /===========================\
                            (  BATTLE OF WU ZHANG PLAINS  )
                             \===========================/
    
    ----- Wei vs. Shu
    ----- Characters: Cao Cao, Cao Pi, Cao Ren, Sima Yi, Zhen Ji
    
    The first thing you should do when you begin the battle is to take out the two
    attack bases in the middle of the map, since they can become annoying when
    fighting. While you're at it, seal the two checkpoints near the bases to avoid
    an influx of enemy soldiers. Whenever Zhong Hui shows up on the west side,
    Zhuge Liang will order an ambush (Zhang Yi) on him, so rush over there and make
    sure he doesn't die while getting into the castle to set up the catapults. If
    you're playing as Cao Cao, Zuo Ci should show up around this time as well, so
    make short work of him.
    
    By this time, Wei Yan and Ma Dai will begin rushing the center base on the
    frontlines, so head over there and take them out. Once you take out three main
    officers, Zhuge Liang will pass away, making Jiang Wei the commander and Shu
    will initiate a retreat. Use this brief fresh of air to go over to the east side
    of the map and cut off the supply line by defeat the defense captain.
    Eventually, Jiang Wei will set up an array of arbalests upon the central
    platform, which will cause a retreat for the Wei army. At about the same time,
    Jian Yong will appear just north of where the supply line captain was located,
    so get him while heading towards the platform with the arbalests.
    
    When you get to the platform with the arbalests, be wary of the archer towers
    and the juggernauts. There are a total of 13 arbalests to destroy, so start with
    the three in the middle, then work your way around the perimeter. One last
    reinforcement will show up for Shu in the form of Guan Suo and he will
    eventually journey into the middle of the map. Defeat him and Liao Hua, then go
    after Yue Ying in the southeast. When any of your troops get near her area, some
    explosive pots will be discovered. This triggers the appearance of two task
    captains in the area, so hunt them down to stop the pots. Once Yue Ying is gone,
    head towards Jiang Wei's position, making sure to seal the checkpoints to stop
    the appearances of those annoying juggernauts and then take out both of his subs
    if they're still alive. Once the coast is clear, finish off Jiang Wei for the
    win.

    ------------
    CHARACTERS 1 (start to finish)
    ------------
    When the battle starts, take the nearby attack base. Not too soon after that,
    you'll get a cutscene where Zhang Liang has conjured up a giant log that rolls
    back and forth in a nearby passage (it hurts a lot, so don't go that way). On
    the side of the attack base is Deng Mao, so take him out and another cutscene
    will occur where Cheng Yuanzhi will start dropping boulders in the other passage
    near you. Navigate past them and take out the checkpoint and Cheng Yuanzhi, as
    well as the abundance of archers.
    
    Once you defeat Cheng Yuanzhi, a boulder will roll down the passage and form a
    bridge so you can cross. Go north and defeat Zhang Liang, which will make the
    giant log from before disappear. Take the defense base, seal the checkpoint and
    start heading east. When you enter the northern passage, phantom troops will
    show up, so ignore them and continue on. Take the base in the next area, then
    defeat Zhang Bao, which will make the phantom troops vanish. Take the two
    checkpoints in the last area, then finish off the stage by taking out Zhang
    Jiao.
    
    ------------
    CHARACTERS 2 (start to finish)
    ------------
    When the stage starts, Zhang Liang will become isolated in the northwest and a
    lot of officers will start charging the altar. For now, rush to the northwest
    and rescue Zhang Liang (take the defense base and defeat Li Ru while you're
    there). Head back to the beginning of the stage and take out Dong Min, Niu Fu
    and Hu Zhen. Ma Chao should be showing up pretty soon in the northeast corner,
    so head there and wait for him to show up. Once he's gone, start driving your
    way to Dong Zhuo's position (avoid the rolling log, since it knows neither
    friend nor foe), taking out Xu Rong and Hua Xiong in the process. Two more
    reinforcements will show up just north of Dong Zhuo (Li Jue and), so take them
    out when they do. When they tell you to advance to the one base, do so and a
    phantom army will appear for your side. After that, all you have to do is take
    out Dong Zhuo.

    CHARACTERS 1 (start to finish)
    ------------
    When the stage starts, take the nearby attack base and continue into the central
    passage towards Bo Zhang (Zhang Jiao will eventually call forth a tornado and
    will retreat into the northeast corner). Your next target is He Yi, but take in
    mind the tornado's location as to not warrant a lot of damage. Start making your
    way north to the altar (Zhang Bao should be closing in on it soon enough) and
    take out the checkpoint on the western side. Go to the altar now and defeat both
    Zhang Bao and Pei Yuan Shao, which will cause the tornado to the south to cease.
    
    Start heading your way to the southeast corner, taking care of the supply base
    and checkpoint in the central east. Continue going south and take the defense
    base and the next checkpoint, as well as the officer if he's still alive. Now,
    you can head back north to Zhang Jiao's fort, taking out Zhang Liang at the
    southern entrance. Seal the two checkpoints once inside, then head for the
    leader of the Yellow Turbans to finish the job.
    
    ------------
    CHARACTERS 2 (start to finish)
    ------------
    When the stage begins, head south out of your fort and head along the eastern
    path. Take out Yuan Xi and seal the checkpoint, then head into the southeastern
    corner. Go through the attack base, taking it out in the process, then seal the
    checkpoint and defeat Ju Shou. Once that's done, head into the middle area and
    clear out the altar. From here, head to the northwest and help out Zhang Liang
    by taking both the attack base and checkpoint, then defeating Yuan Shang.
    
    Make a stop at the altar and let Zhang Jiao summon the tornado if you haven't
    already, then start heading down the path. Take out Yan Liang and his subofficer
    and continue on to the supply base. Take that, the checkpoint, and the attack
    base, then defeat Wen Chou and his subofficer. Eventually, Zhao Yun will show up
    with reinforcements in the southeast corner, so head there and take him out if
    he shows up. Otherwise, your only choice left is Yuan "Monkey" Shao.

    ----- Dong Zhuo vs. Allies
    ----- Characters: Dong Zhuo
    
    When the stage starts, take the nearby defense base and start heading towards Ma
    Chao, who should be heading towards your own attack base on the east side of the
    map. He is in hyper mode, so it will take a bit longer than usual to defeat him.
    Head to the northeast corner and take the base there, which will halt any enemy
    reinforcements later on in the battle. Head to the southwest and defeat Liang
    Xing, then take the base there to stop enemy reinforcements from coming.
    
    From here, you can start taking out the rest of the officers on the map besides
    Ma Teng. The only one that will give you a bit of trouble is Pang De, who is in
    hyper mode but that shouldn't be too much for you. If you haven't taken the rest
    of the bases, do so now and start heading towards Ma Teng. Cheng Yi will show up
    as reinforcements in Ma Teng's fort, so take him out before finishing the stage.

    CHARACTERS 1
    ------------
    When the stage begins, head into the central area and begin your work there.
    Take out Dong Tu Na and the supply base, then defeat King Duosi and Ahui Nan.
    Now, King Mulu will charge your position, so get ready for some tigers and
    elephants. Knock Mulu off of his high "horse" and take him out. Wu Tugu should
    be charging your position now, so take him out when he gets into view.
    
    ------------
    CHARACTERS 2
    ------------
    Head east when the stage starts and take out the checkpoint in the southeast
    corner. From here, head along the eastern path until you get to Jinhuan Sanjie.
    Take him and the checkpoint nearby out, then disable the attack base slightly to
    the west. Take out King Duosi just to the west of that, as well as the
    checkpoint nearby, then head into the center of the stage. Take out Ahui Nan,
    Dong Tu Na, King Mulu and the supply base. The last general for now, Wu Tugu,
    will start heading towards your position, so defeat him when you get a chance.
    -------------------------
    
    That should mark the end of the stage, but it isn't. Three more generals will
    show up in the three corners of the map. Head to the southeast corner and take
    out Zhu Bao, whose men will be charging your main camp (you lose if it gets
    taken). From here, you can take out whichever ones you want to get rid of next,
    but keep in mind that the final officer doesn't drop anything, so look at the
    drop list section to see who you would like to pilfer. The stage ends when all
    three new officers are defeated.

    ------------
    CHARACTERS 1 (start to finish)
    ------------
    When the stage starts, defeat both Pei Yuan Shao and Zhang Jiao, who should be
    rather close to your main base. Once you defeat Zhang Jiao or let enough time
    pass, he'll reappear in the northeast corner and convert some of your own troops
    (just peons) near your main base. From here, go to the northwest, taking the
    neutral base there, and take out Zhang Bao and his subofficer, who should try to
    convert some more peons. The same will happen in the southeast, so head down
    there after taking out Zhang Bao and rescue those guys by defeating Zhang Liang.
    By this time, Zhang Jiao will probably purify the poison swamp, which will
    convert even more peons. To rescue King Duosi, simply go through the base and
    defeat Bo Zhang. Once that is done, all that's left is Zhang Jiao, but be wary
    of the fact that he can teleport Guan Hai just south of the neutral base in the
    west.
    
    ------------
    CHARACTERS 2 (start to finish)
    ------------
    When the stage starts, head into the poison swamp area and immediately head for
    the tiny island in the middle. Using this as a stable area, defeat Ahui Nan and
    King Duosi. This will cause an event where Zhang Jiao purifies the poison marsh
    and the peasant troops left behind will be converted. Also, the gates leading to
    the southeast and northwest will be opened, so you can go either way now. More
    peasant troops will join you when you defeat Wu Tugu and King Mulu. Even more
    troops will be converted as you journey along the paths leading to the bases.
    The last set of troops to be converted will be the base right near the main camp
    of the Nanman. Defeat Zhu Rong and Meng You, then the last person to go after is
    Meng Huo.

    CHARACTERS 1 (start to finish)
    ------------
    This is definitely a tough stage, seeing as your officers will quickly die if
    you don't do something. When the stage starts, take the northern path until you
    meet up with Gongsun Yue. Defeat him and that should give Zhang Man Cheng the
    go ahead to take the semi-oval path to the cliff's end to start dropping some
    boulders. From here, you can either head for the altar with Zhang Bao or the one
    with Zhang Liang. When you get to either one, stay at the altar until Cao Cao
    and Sun Jian are converted to your side (of course, you're also welcome to take
    them out if you want).
    
    With both of them on your side (or dead), Liu Bei will begin charging your main
    camp. If you're in the southeast, defeat Huangfu Song, then start heading for
    Liu Bei. If you're in the middle, take out Zhu Jun, then head for Liu Bei's
    unit. Either way, all of the action will be in the northwest corner. Once there,
    take out Guan Yu, Jian Yong, Liu Bei and Gongsun Zan, as well as the checkpoint
    in the northwest corner. Once done there, you can finall head towards He Jin.
    Whenever you set a foot inside their main camp, Dong Zhuo will appear in the
    area to the northwest of it (his three subs will appear at different locations).
    You'll have to defeat both of them at this point, but the last one doesn't drop
    anything (He Jin drops dim sum and Dong Zhuo drops an attack+).
    
    ------------
    CHARACTERS 2 (start to finish)
    ------------
    When the stage starts, go forward and take the enemy supply base. If you have
    Events on, you'll see a cutscene with Zuo Ci appearing in front of Cao Cao.
    Another cutscene will occur not too long after that where Zhang Liang will
    summon forth a tornado in that small passage in the southeast corner. Defeat Gao
    Sheng at the bottom end of the corridor and go past the wind to find an area
    with the altar with Zhang Liang. Take the checkpoint nearby and then defeat
    Zhang Liang.
    
    The next event that will likely occur will be Zhang Man Cheng starting to pray
    at the middle altar. This will eventually make him turn some of Sun Jian's
    forces against him, which will just be normal soldiers and Han Dang. Defeating
    Zhang Man Cheng will turn them back to normal. The next event that will occur is
    Zhang Bao starting a rockslide in the small corridor on the northwest corner.
    Simply defeat him to stop it. The last event that will occur is Zhang Jiao
    summoning phantom troops that cannot be killed in the fortress in the northeast
    corner of the map. This occurs when any Allied soldier first steps foot into the
    fortress. To make the phantom army disappear, there is an altar next to where
    Zhang Jiao is with 4 pots that you can break. Zhang Jiao is in hyper mode when
    you fight him, so be careful.

    CHARACTERS 1 (start to finish)
    ------------
    Head along the southern path at the start, where Sun Jian is located, and defeat
    Fan Chou. Head into the middle area now, going through the base, and defeat Xu
    Rong, Jia Xu and Guo Si, as well as the base in the middle to stop the annoyance
    factor. Head to the northeast base to help secure the supply line for Sun Jian,
    defeating Wang Fang on the way and then Hu Zhen and Niu Fu on the other side of
    the base.
    
    By now, someone from your army will have opened up the first gate of Si Shui
    Gate, which will trigger Lu Bu's appearance. Lu Bu is one tough cookie who is in
    hyper mode when you meet up with him and uses Musou Rage, as well as some of the
    other attacks for 30 seconds, so be careful if you want to try and kill him (he
    only drops a weapon box). If you heed Yuan Shao's words and head for the gate by
    the other path, then Li Ru will appear near the base there. Take out Li Ru and
    go through the supply base, then start heading north to Hua Xiong. Feel free to
    take out the checkpoints and then Hua Xiong himself to finish the stage.
    
    ------------
    CHARACTERS 2 (start to finish)
    ------------
    Go into the middle area once the stage begins and start by sealing the
    checkpoint at the northern end. You'll probably be visited by Han Dang in the
    process, so take him out and then take out the base in the middle. There are a
    lot of subofficers in the central area, so find and defeat them (Zhu Zhi, Guan
    Yu and Huang Gai). Once you take all of them out, head for the northeast base,
    which controls the supply line to Sun Jian. Taking this base will make Sun Jian
    fall back a bit, if he's still alive.
    
    Once you have taken the supply line base, head to the opposite side and seal the
    checkpoint, then go after Yuan Shu. Once you're finished in this area, head over
    towards Si Shui Gate. By now, Cao Cao will/has probably shown up just south of
    Si Shui and will head straight for it. Cut him off before he has a chance to do
    anything, defeating Xiahou Dun in the process and then Cao Cao. Thanks to your
    little detour, your troops should be pushing farther into Yuan Shao's main camp.
    Seal the checkpoints down there if they're still in existence, then go after
    Yuan Shao to finish the stage.

    CHARACTERS 1 (start to finish)
    ------------
    There's nothing too hard about this battle, although there are a few things that
    need to be noted. Whenever the first gate opens at Hu Lao, Lu Bu will appear.
    Note that Lu Bu is in hyper mode and will use a Musou Rage when low on health,
    so be very careful if you should try and fight him. I personally would listen to
    Yuan Shao and take the detour around to where Zhang Liao is located. Lu Bu is
    tough and I have lost to him many times, so be careful is you do try and beat
    him.
    
    Later in the stage, Dong Zhuo will call in reinforcements that will appear in
    the southeast corner of the map (Fan Chou). You can go after them if you want.
    Another event that can occur is between Cao Cao and you, should you get close to
    him during the battle. One last thing that can occur is Dong Zhuo calling Lu Bu
    back to him during the battle. This seems to occur when Dong Zhuo's forces are
    nearly finished, so hurry up and defeat Dong Zhuo before this happens.
    
    ------------
    CHARACTERS 2 (start to finish)
    ------------
    Your first goal when the stage starts should be to rid the area in front of Hu
    Lao Gate. There are a number of subofficers here, which include Cheng Pu, Cao
    Hong, Jian Yong, and possibly Li Dian. Once you do that, Yuan Shao will redirect
    his focus on the detour path where Zhang Liao is. This should get Liu Bei and
    his two Brothers to start moving towards there, so take them out when you get a
    chance. When Zhu Zhi and Han Dang both perish (they're both on the detour path),
    Yuan Shao will initiate a retreat.
    
    From here, you can go one of two ways. You can take the east path that splits 
    north and south or you can take the south path, which will lead to Cao Cao. If
    you take the path that forks, use the south path that leads to the center. Take
    out both defense bases, as well as Gongsun Yue, Gongsun Zan and Sun Jian. From
    there, you can head to the west and take out Cao Cao and the attack base. At
    around the 11-minute mark, more or less, Wen Chou and Yan Liang will show up
    over on that side of the map, so defeat them when you get a chance. Once they
    are finished, all that's left is to take out the rest of the officers on the
    map, then Yuan Shao himself.

    Go forth and open the first gate, then defeat Qing Niujiao and Li Damu. Once Lu
    Bu takes care of Zuozi Zhangba, he will boast about how no one in this army can
    defeat him and charge. Of course, once he reaches the open area, an enemy ambush
    will appear (Guo Daxian). It is suggested that you help him out before he turns
    on you, so head over to the west and take out Zhang Yan, which will regain Lu
    Bu's trust. If you wait long enough, Lu Bu will eventually retreat from the
    battle, so it helps that you do help him.
    
    ------------
    CHARACTERS 2
    ------------
    When the stage starts, go forward and take out Zuozi Zhangba. Notice how Yuan
    Shao says he doesn't trust Lu Bu at all. Go into the open area and you will fall
    into an ambush. Yuan Shao will be a bit upset and you have regain his trust,
    which can be achieved by taking out Zhang Yan. Before you do that, defeat Yu Du
    and Guo Daxian, then you can go after Zhang Yan.
    -------------------------
    
    Head to the central area and go through the second gate by defeating Huang Long.
    Go through the gate and defeat Gongsun Yue to open the third one, where you'll
    meet Zhao Yun and Yan Geng. Take them both out and the next gate will open.
    Guan Yu should be there, so take him out and head to the east to find Zhang Fei
    and A LOT of archers. After defeating Zhang Fei, head to the west again and take
    out Liu Bei. Go through the last gate, seal the checkpoint and go after Gongsun
    Zan's head to finish the stage.

    When the stage begins, go south and defeat Zhang Fei, then start heading west.
    Around this time, Hou Cheng will say that his escape route into the castle has
    been flooded and he needs help, which will prompt Zhang Liao to go and help him
    out. For now, head west and defeat Guan Yu, then seal the nearby checkpoint.
    This will make Liu Bei charge towards you, so defeat him when you get a chance
    (take the supply base if you want). If Hou Cheng is still alive, then head north
    and defeat Xiahou Yuan to rescue him. If he dies, then some of your generals
    will question Lu Bu's loyalty. The last guy on the stage for now is Xiahou Dun,
    so defeat him. Once either enough time passes or all generals are defeated, Cao
    Cao will show up in the southwest (Cao Hong shows up in the northeast. Around
    this time, Wei Xu will probably defect to Cao Cao's side. Take out the rest of
    the officers, then head for Cao Cao's head.

    You start just north of the fortress where Guan Yu is located. As you get close
    to the fortress, Liu Bei will notice that his sworn brother is here and fall
    back. This will cause Guan Yu's unit to move toward Yan Liang, who will be
    defeated swiftly by Guan Yu. This enrages Wen Chou and causes him to charge
    toward Guan Yu, who again will be defeated quickly by Guan Yu. After that, Guan
    Yu will withdraw from the battle by going to the checkpoint right near one of
    your attack bases.
    
    As you get close to the castle where Cao Cao is, a cutscene will occur where
    siege weapons will appear and attack the castle walls. This, in turn, will cause
    Cao Cao's forces to start using catapults to attack back. Defeat the officers
    outside of the castle and some of Cao Cao's soldiers will open up the gates on
    the eastern and western sides. The front gate will eventually open once the
    castle is damaged enough. After that, it's a simple go in and defeat Cao Cao.

    ----- Liu Bei vs. Cao Cao
    ----- Characters: Zuo Ci
    
    Before the battle starts, take note that there are 7 neutral bases. When it
    starts, head towards and capture as many as possible, taking the southern path
    when it splits. Zhuge Liang's men will take the northern neutral base when the
    path forks. Zhuge Liang is planning a fire attack and sends out a task force
    near the western gate just south of the river. Make sure you clear out that area
    and protect it so that it succeeds. You'll probably also witness the event where
    Zhang Fei repels the enemy on Chang Ban bridge.
    
    After that, start clearing out the forces in the northern section of the map,
    taking out Xiahou Dun. Eventually, reinforcements will come in the way of Cao
    Zhang and Xu Huang. Not long after that, Guan Yu will show up in the southwest
    corner of the map for your forces. More enemy reinforcements will show up in the
    southeast corner of the map (Jia Xu and two sub-officers). Once again,
    reinforcements will show up once again for your forces in the form of Liu Qi,
    which will also designate the escape point for Liu Bei. If you want a piece of
    Cao Cao when he shows up, stay in the north; otherwise, go and take out Jia Xu.
    If you go after Jia Xu, you probably won't make it in time to encounter Cao Cao
    before Liu Bei escapes.

    ----- Allies vs. Cao Cao
    ----- Characters: Zuo Ci
    
    Not long into the stage, Xiahou Dun will blow up a bridge in the middle of the
    map. Follow the path and defeat Cao Ren, then continue and defeat Zhang Liao
    after that. Cao Cao will stop marching in the middle of the map, but will resume
    when Xiahou Dun tells him to come his way. Not long after that, enemy
    reinforcements will show up in the form of Jia Xu in the northeast corner of the
    map.
    
    He will stop marching again when he reaches a little north of Xiahou Dun's
    position. Jia Xu will come down to where Xiahou Dun is and Xiahou Yuan will
    shortly come in as reinforcements after that. Cao Cao will go up to where Xiahou
    Yuan is located and stop once again. Cao Zhang will come in as reinforcements in
    the southeast corner of the map, but I would go up and defeat Xiahou Yuan before
    going after him, if you do. Once again, Wei reinforcements will show up (Cao
    Hong) in the southern area of the map. Of course, this could spell bad news as
    Sun Quan is usually the last unit and Cao Zhang/Cao Hong will probably gang up
    on him. The last reinforcements will show up in the northeast corner in the form
    of Xun Yu, which will open up an escape route for Cao Cao (he'll probably be
    flanked on both sides by Allied forces, so he won't be moving). Defeat him and
    Cao Cao will now be in hyper mode, so go over and take him down.

                                (  BATTLE OF HE FEI  )
                                 \==================/
    
    ----- Wu vs. Wei
    ----- Characters: Zuo Ci
    
    This is a pretty easy battle that is only complicated by numerous Wei
    reinforcements. The first to show up is Cao Zhang on the western side. I would
    clear out the whole central area where you start and stay close to Sun Quan
    until Zhang Liao shows up. He'll show up after Cao Zhang and will be in hyper
    mode throughout the whole battle. Take him out quickly and then head to the
    southwest corner to take out Xu Huang, who should show up anytime soon.
    
    The next reinforcements to show up for Wei will be Yu Jin in the north, with
    Zhang Liao reappearing shortly after. Head to the north and clear out all of the
    officers up there. Don't forget that Zhang Liao is in hyper mode, so it may
    take longer than expected to defeat him. Shortly after or during that battle,
    Xiahou Dun and Cao Hong will show up in the northeast corner, so get rid of them
    while you're up there.
    
    Zhang Liao will show up two more times if you wait long enough. The third time
    will be in the southwestern corner of the map and the fourth time will be right
    outside of the castle where Cao Cao is. If you want to wait, do so and defeat
    him both times; otherwise, you can just continue and go after Cao Cao to finish
    the stage. You do get some reinforcements in the form of Gan Ning somewhere
    either after Zhang Liao is defeated the third time or after about 15 minutes
    elapses.

    ----- Nanman vs. Wu
    ----- Characters: Meng Huo, Zhu Rong
    
    When the stage starts, take the nearby base and defeat Zhu Ran's subofficer,
    then head into the middle of the battlefield. Defeat Xu Sheng and go after Zhou
    Tai and Zhu Ran next, then take the base there as well. Eventually, Meng Huo
    will mention that you should take down the bridge just south of where Lu Meng
    is located. All you have to do is get near it and it will be destroyed, but you
    should take out Lu Xun first.
    
    Because the bridge will be down, you'll have to find another way to get to the
    enemy's main camp. Head to the western passage to continue your battles. It is
    there that you'll find Sun Shang Xiang and her two subofficers. Quickly defeat
    all three and then take the base just north of the river (don't forget to seal
    the checkpoint before that). King Mulu will eventually arrive with his beast
    unit and will break down the wall on the east side of the Wu encampment. There
    are Wu reinforcements in this battle, but they arrive at around the 15-17 minute
    mark, so you'll probably be long done with the battle before they get a chance
    to show up. Fight your way into the main camp, slaying the dozens of archers.
    Seal the checkpoints, slay Lu Meng and Zhuge Jin, and then go after Sun Quan.

                                (  BATTLE OF YI LING  )
                                 \===================/
    
    ----- Shu vs. Wu
    ----- Characters: Zuo Ci
    
    The first thing you should do is take out the enemy supply base and checkpoint
    near your intial position. From here, you can either head west to take out Han
    Dang and the supply base (not the northwest one). Note that if you stray too far
    along the thin strip of land in the north or take the northwest base, you will
    trigger the bridgelayer to be laid down and Zhu Ran will cross it and succeed
    with the fire attack, which is bad for your morale. I would take out Han Dang
    and then the supply base southwest of his location (Ma Zhong, Ding Feng's
    sub-general should be around there as well). By doing this, you'll free up Zhao
    Yun's and Sha Moke's troops to go in the northwest corner.
    
    That is your cue to make your way back to the bridgelayer where Zhu Ran will
    cross once it's put down. Once the Shu forces take out the base in the northwest
    corner, the bridge will be laid down and Zhu Ran will initiate the fire attack
    plan. Your goal is to defeat Zhu Ran as soon as possible, but the job isn't as
    easy as it sounds thanks to Ling Tong and Gan Ning, both of whom are in hyper
    mode for as long as Zhu Ran is alive. If the fire attack succeeds (when Zhu Ran
    reaches that small peninsula just southeast of the bridge), then Ling Tong and
    Gan Ning will remain in hyper mode. After that, the rest of the battle is the
    simple go and clean out the rest of the map, although enemy reinforcements do
    come in the form of Zhang Cheng in the southeast (sub-general is in the
    northwest).

                               \=======================/
    
    ----- Nanman vs. Shu
    ----- Characters: Meng Huo, Zhu Rong
    
    When the battle begins, head for Wei Yan's unit in the southwest. Defeat his two
    subs, Lu Kai and Ma Dai, then Wei Yan himself. Seal the checkpoint down there as
    well, then take out the base as well. Head into the next area, which is empty
    for the moment, but after enough time passes, Zhuge Liang's two subs fighting
    just to the northwest will lure Wu Tugu into the area. This will trigger
    explosive pots to appear, which will cause serious damage to your forces in the
    area. There are four task leaders throughout the area, so hunt them down and
    stop the pots from hurting your forces too badly. If Wu Tugu dies at any time
    during the entire battle, Dong Tu Na will defect. After taking out the task
    leaders, get rid of the base in the middle and move onto the next area.
    
    In the next area, take out Huang Zhong and his sub, then seal the checkpoint in
    the southeastern corner of the area. You should also get the event where Yue
    Ying's juggernauts show up in the northcentral area. As with the explosive pots
    event, you must help out one of your ally (Jinhuan Sanjie) and prevent another
    from defecting (Ahui Nan). You must destroy all seven juggernauts in the area to
    rescue Jinhuan Sanjie, so it won't be easy considering they're spread around the
    area. To make matters more confusing, Shu will receive reinforcements in the
    northwest corner in the form of Ma Chao unless you can seal the checkpoint
    there AND you need to seal the checkpoint just northeast of the poison marsh
    if you want to get reinforcements for your side.
    
    Once you have taken out the juggernauts and Yue Ying, seal the checkpoint to the
    north. Ma Chao will probably show up if you're concentrating on the juggernauts,
    so head west and defeat him and Guan Xing. If your forces haven't already
    taken the checkpoint and officer blocking your reinforcements, go over there now
    and take them out. Yang Feng will appear as reinforcements for your forces once
    enough time passes, but he has a chance to defect if things aren't looking too
    good for the Nanman. Once all the other officers are gone, trek towards Shu's
    main camp and seal the checkpoints. After that, all you have to do is take out
    Zhuge Liang for the win.

                             \===========================/
    
    ----- Shu vs. Wei
    ----- Characters: Zuo Ci
    
    The first thing you should do is take the two enemy attack bases near your
    initial position. This will secure the supply line for Shu. Don't worry so much
    on the normal soldiers, but do take out any officers that should happen to cross
    your path when taking out the bases. The Shu forces now have the wooden oxen
    on the field and they need escorting to the front lines. I wouldn't worry so
    much about them, as Zhong Hui's unit will arrive shortly and he needs to be
    taken out as soon as possible; for some odd reason, he always kills everyone on
    my side. After you defeat him, head on over to Yue Ying and help her out, since
    she's probably being swarmed by a lot of Wei soldiers.
    
    You should be able to make short work of them. The main targets over on the west
    side are Cao Rui and the two checkpoints over there (not the northwest). It
    should be around this time that Deng Ai will show up for Wei and begin setting
    up the catapults. Head through the supply base nearby and go toward Deng Ai's
    position. You'll probably need to take out Xu Zhu on the way and Cao Ren will
    be in the same area as Deng Ai. The only problem is that Deng Ai is in hyper
    mode, so it will take a bit more than usual to take him out, but that time can
    be shortened if you have a Musou Rage ready to use.
    
    Once you defeat Deng Ai, the catapults will stop. After that, it's time for a
    bit of cleaning up. If there are any officers left besides the three at the top,
    defeat them now. When any people from your force get close to Sima Zhao, an
    ambush will spring up just to the south; if any get close to Xiahou Ba, he will
    cause a rockslide that will stay until he is defeated. Slay both of them, as
    well as Sima Yi's two sub-officers and the four checkpoints in the north. All
    that is left is to finish off Sima Yi, who goes into hyper mode when you
    approach him.

    This section will give the details on all of the weapons for each character.
    DW4 used a system where the same weapon leveled as you played the game, but this
    one doesn't use that method. Dynasty Warriors 5 uses the same system as in DW3
    and Samurai Warriors, where you find the weapons on the battlefield in specific
    boxes. The weapons you pick up may or may not have attributes attached to them.
    There are 3 levels of weapons, ones with 4 attacks, ones with 5 attacks and
    ones with 6 attacks. Besides those, there are also unique 4th weapons for each
    character that can be gotten by completing certain requirements.
    
    As said before, you must find weapon boxes (small, rectangular-shaped) on the
    battlefield in order to obtain new weapons. You can only keep four weapons at
    any given time for each character, so you'll have to make some choices when it
    comes to what weapons you want to keep. When you already have four weapons
    occupying the slots, whenever you get a new one is when you'll have the choice
    to override one of the previous weapons.
    
    There are many stats that can be a part of a weapon and here are some
    explanations on those stats. When you get the 3rd weapon (Attacks = 6) for any
    character, there is sometimes a light blue icon next to it. This enables the
    Evolution attack, which happens after Normal Attack 6 (3 additional attacks,
    totaling up to 9). Note that you have to have a full Musou gauge in order to use
    the Evolution attacks, but it doesn't consume it so there are no worries there.
    Weapons also come in three different weights: light, medium and heavy. These
    weapons affect how fast you will swing the weapon, so it is best to go with
    light or medium when possible. Note that 4th weapons are capable of Evolution
    attacks and their weights are already preset. Light weapons also do lesser
    overall damage, as heavy weapons do more overall damage, but heavy weapons
    sometimes are too slow in executing attacks, so just stick to medium or light
    weight. Here are the explanations for all of the other stats:
    
    LIFE.....Life gauge maximum will increase
    MUSOU....Musou gauge maximum will increase
    ATK......Increases attack power
    DEF......Increases defense
    SPEED....Increases speed
    BOW......Improves bow attack and defense
    HORSE....Improves mounted attack and defense
    LUCK.....Increases your chance of finding better items
    FILL.....Increases the speed at which the Musou gauge fills
    CHARGE...Increases charge attack power
    
    The highest a stat can go on a weapon is 20, which is the same for the stat
    items.
    
    -----NOTE-----
    In order to get the 4th weapon for any character, you must be playing the game
    on at least Hard difficulty. You will not get the message that a weapon has
    appeared on Normal or Easy, so make sure that you're playing on Hard. Also note
    that 4th weapons always are capable of Evolution attacks, which allows combos
    of up to 9 hits from just hitting Square alone.
    
    Fourth weapons can be gotten during Musou or Free mode and the first player MUST
    COMPLETE all requirements in order for the weapon to show up. That means that a
    second player cannot fulfill any requirements for a weapon, so be careful when
    using 2 players.

    ----- Battle of Xia Pi
    ----- Cao Cao's Forces
    ----- You must defeat Gao Shun before you get the message that he is reinforcing
          the floodgates. He goes over to the floodgates very early in the stage, so
          rush over there and immediately take him out before he gets the chance
          to reinforce them. Once you defeat Gao Shun, your next move is to take out
          Zhang Liao, who should be a little bit east of where the floodgate is.
          Move on over there and take him out. Once you do, the valuable item report
          will show up just outside of the castle's southern gate. Get it and go to
          take out Lu Bu to finish the stage. If you don't defeat him fast enough,

    ----- Battle of Wu Zhang Plains
    ----- Wei Forces
    ----- This will definitely be a hard weapon to get, because Wu Zhang Plains has
          a difficulty of 5 stars in Free Mode (it's his fourth Musou stage, so it
          may be a bit easier). The first thing you need to make sure of is that
          Cao Ren and Sima Yi are kept alive during the whole requirements section
          of the weapon. Your first goal is to defeat three officers, not subs, as
          fast as you can, which will speed up the process of Zhuge Liang's death.
          Note that you must be the one who deals the killing blows on the generals.
          The generic officers that charge into the middle are good fodder for you,
          so take them out as well as Wei Yan if you need any more.
    
          Once Zhuge Liang is pushing up daisies and Jiang Wei has become commander,
          all you have to do now is wait. Take this moment to seal off checkpoints
          and take out the supply route on the east side of the map. What you're
          waiting for is for Jiang Wei to set up the lot of arbalests in the middle
          area. When he does this, hurry yourself over there and take out each one,
          starting with the middle three. Make sure to watch out for the juggernauts
          and the archers in the towers. Once you destroy all of the arbalests, the
          valuable item box will appear in the middle of the area with the
          arbalests.

    ----- Escape from Chi Bi
    ----- Cao Cao's Forces
    ----- Cao Ren's first Musou stage is Escape from Chi Bi, so it's easily done in
          Musou Mode. Your ultimate goal is to defeat each enemy reinforcement as
          quickly as you can. Don't worry about any of the subofficers and go
          straight at the generals. Note that Cao Cao's position will trigger the
          ambushes, but Cao Cao will resume marching once each reinforcement is
          taken out. The first reinforcement to show up is Cheng Pu, just around the
          very first corner. Either during your fight with Cheng Pu or slightly
          after his defeat, Han Dang will show up where you first started, so double
          back and make short work of him. The next four reinforcements to show up
          are Zhu Zhi, Zhao Yun, Zhang Fei and Guan Ping. After defeating Guan Ping,
          head to the southeast corner as Sun Quan will show up. Once Sun Quan is
          pushing up daisies, the valuable item box will show up on the branched
          path near where both Zhao Yun and Zhang Fei first showed up.

          dying. As soon as the stage starts, charge up the right side of the map,
          ignoring everything and head into the central area. Head straight for Cai
          Mao and quickly defeat him. By this time, Gan Ning will probably have
          ambushed Ling Cao and killed him. This will cause Ling Tong to become
          enraged and charge him, so as soon as you're done with Cai Mao, go through
          the defense base and confront Gan Ning. Gan Ning goes into hyper mode, so
          he can be a bit on the tougher side, but it shouldn't be too hard. Once
          you defeat both officers, the valuable item box will appear just north of
          Cai Mao's original position.

    ----- Battle of Wan Castle

    ----- Begin the battle as normally and meet up with Cao Cao. When you start
          heading towards the escape point, Hu Che Er will appear in the southwest
          corner when you get there. Make sure you get the killing blow on him and
          continue heading to the escape point. When you get to that point, Jia Xu
          will show up, so defeat him so Cao Cao can begin his escape. I suggest
          that you SAVE now, as the next part is the more difficult one. What you
          must do is make sure that not one single task force leader (one with name)
          passes you AND you must stay put at the escape point, meaning you cannot
          wait at the spawn points. After about the fourth or fifth kill, you should
          get a message that Cao Cao is heading for the escape route, at which point
          the valuable item box will appear straight from where you are, slightly
          out of view. Go and grab it, then continue guarding the point to finish
          the stage (once the weapon appears, it doesn't matter if anyone passes).

          take out both Xiahou Dun's and Yuan's subofficers. This should cause both
          of them to come towards you, so take them out when they present
          themselves. With them gone, all you have left is to defeat Liu Bei and
          Guan Yu. If you did all of this before Cao Cao arrived, he will show up
          now and the valuable item box will appear in the middle of the

          the stage starts, take out the base near you and then head to the
          northeast and southwest to take those bases out. It should be about now
          that Ma Chao will start heading towards your base on the east side of the
          map, but ignore him for now and take the remaining two bases, which will
          thwart some reinforcements for the enemy later on. Now, go and confront
          Ma Chao, who will be in hyper mode for this battle, but that's all he has
          going for him. Pang De will be a bit trickier since he is in the middle of
          enemy troops, so make sure you're fully healed before going to battle. He
          is also in hyper mode, but as with Ma Chao, that's all he has. The only
          problem is that he may have help in the form of some other officers, so
          take those guys out and then Pang De. The valuable item box will appear
          northeast of the southwest base, in the middle of the open field.

          arise is that Ling Tong will go into hyper mode if you defeat his father
          first. The solution is to go straight after Ling Tong first, bypassing the
          base and Ling Cao. Once you make short work of Ling Tong, ride back to
          Ling Cao and quickly take him out. Once you do that, the valuable item box
          will appear just north of Cai Mao's position.

          Only Cao Ren, Zhang Liao and Xiahou Dun are present at the beginning of
          the stage. You need not worry about killing any subgenerals, so you can
          bypass them if you want. Go forward and take out Cao Ren, who should be
          the closest general. After he's gone, head east and take out Zhang Liao
          next.
    
          After taking out Zhang Liao, start heading west and Jia Xu will show up
          in the northeast. As you get closer to Xiahou Dun's position, Jia Xu will
          come down towards you and Xiahou Yuan will show up north of Xiahou Dun.
          Take out Jia Xu and Xiahou Dun, then head north and defeat Xiahou Yuan. By
          now, Cao Zhang and Cao Hong should have appeared in the southeast corner,
          so head down there and take them out. The last reinforcements to show up
          will be Xun Yu in the northeast corner (takes a while). Once you have
          defeated all of the generals, the valuable item box will appear near the
          center of the map.

    ----- Battle of Fan Castle
    ----- Shu Forces
    ----- As soon as the stage begins, go north and find where both Niu Jin and Yue
          Jin are located. You have to defeat them both before the water attack
          happens, but the good thing is that they will probably charge towards the
          dam. Once you take out both, you'll have to wait until the water attack
          happens before the valuable item box will appear inside Fan Castle, just
          south of Cao Ren's position. One of the problems is that Pang De is quite
          a challenge on this stage, since he goes into hyper mode and uses Musou
          Rage more than once.
    
          You can do one of two things here with Pang De. You can kill all other
          forces on the map, including the Wu reinforcements and ambush, then you
          concentrate solely on Pang De. The other thing is if you take care of Niu
          Jin and Yue Jin very quickly and have a good amount of time left before
          the water attack. You can lure Pang De into the area that will get
          flooded, then make sure you catch him in the flood when you're told to get
          to higher ground. The second method is more complicated, but definitely
          easier.

    ----- The Yellow Turban Rebellion

    ----- This can be a frustrating weapon, solely because you have to defeat all
          subofficers and officers outside of the fortress in the northeast corner.
          That means you must deal the death blow on all of them, so you must keep
          a watchful eye on your allies in this battle. It goes without saying that
          a horse is necessary and that you shouldn't dwindle too long in one area.
          Go north at the battle's start and take out Yan Zheng, then head to the
          southeast corner and take out Zhang Liang's sub. Defeat Zhang Liang now
          and then head north to Zhang Jiao's fort to defeat both Cheng Yuanzhi and
          Pei Yuan Shao, who are both outside the southern wall.
    
          I suggest that you SAVE now, because if any of your allies defeat anyone,
          it will probably be now. Head back to the middle and take out Zhang Man
          Cheng, then head to western path and take out Zhang Bao's other sub, then
          Zhang Bao himself. Head east, find He Yi's two subofficers and take them
          out, then go and defeat He Yi himself. It is possible that the weapon may
          appear sooner than defeating everyone above, but this is here just for
          safety measures. The valuable item box will appear on the altar just south
          of Zhang Jiao.

          Xiahou Yuan is a tough one on this stage, as he is in hyper mode and
          utilizes the Defense x2 powerup, as well as a Musou Rage when he is low on
          health. Once you defeat him, head south and take out Zhang He, who is
          much, much easier than Xiahou Yuan. Note that a valuable item appears
          in the northwest after defeating Xiahou Yuan; this is the Way of the
          Musou, so ignore it if you have already gotten it. The weapon won't show
          up until Cao Cao does, so help out Liu Bei in the southwest until Cao Cao
          shows up. When he does, the valuable item box will appear on the path
          leading northeast from the top of the mountain.

    ----- Battle of Tian Shui

    ----- You must defeat Gao Xiong when he shows up as reinforcements in the
          northeast, but your commander has to be running away in order for him to
          show up. In order for your commander to start running, his morale has to
          be low, so don't go running around and destroying everything you see. You
          might be able to get away with defeating one or two generals, but don't
          take out the fake Jiang Wei. The goal is to pretty much have your army's
          butt kicked, so let both forts fall and the gates to the main castle open,
          which should prompt your commander to run. Hopefully, you've been waiting
          in the northeast corner, so you can quickly defeat Gao Xiong when he shows
          up. Once you defeat him, the valuable item box will appear in the
          northwest corner of the map, but don't take too long to go and get it
          because your commander will get lost on his way to the escape point and
          will wander into the enemy's main camp. Once you grab the weapon, rush
          down to Zhuge Liang and quickly defeat him.

    ----- Battle of He Fei
    ----- Wu Forces
    ----- All you have to do is defeat Zhang Liao all four times he shows up in the
          battle. When the battle starts, start clearing out the central area,
          taking the base there as well as defeating the officers there (you might
          be able to take out Pang De if you're quick enough). Don't waste too much
          time on the peons and go straight after the bigger kills; this way, you
          can go straight after Zhang Liao when he's about to show up. Zhang Liao's
          first appearance is just south of Sun Quan's position, so make sure you
          cut him off. Zhang Liao is in hyper mode throughout the whole battle and
          uses Attack x2 pretty much the whole time, so be careful if you're Ling
          Tong isn't built up a lot.
    
          Once you defeat Zhang Liao for the first time, Yu jin will either show up
          soon or has already shown up. Take him out, as well as the officer inside
          the base there, then sit and wait for Zhang Liao's second appearance.
          Defeat him when he shows up (Xiahou Dun and Cao Hong will show up shortly
          after Liao does, but you don't really need to worry about them). Zhang
          Liao will appear for the third time in the southwest corner, where Xu
          Huang showed up earlier in the battle. His last appearance is right
          outside the eastern wall of Cao Cao's castle. Once you defeat him all four
          times, the valuable item box will appear on the castle wall near the
          southeast corner, so climb the nearby steps and grab it.

    ----- Battle of Yi Ling
    ----- Shu Forces
    ----- When the battle starts, seal the nearby checkpoint and take the base as
          well. Make sure you grab the arrows in the crate next to the checkpoint,
          since you might want them in a little bit; when you kill any archers, grab
          the arrows they drop as well. Head a little more west and take out Han
          Dang. None of the above is necessary, but it should keep you busy while
          you're waiting for the bridgelayer to be put down. Once you defeat Han
          Dang, go back to the east and wait in front of the bridge. Eventually,
          Ling Tong will come to stand near the bridge, so take that as an
          opportunity to pelt him with arrows. You should be able to take him out
          before Zhu Ran manages to put down the bridge, and it definitely makes
          your job much easier.
    
          Finally, Zhu Ran should put down the bridge and begin his trek to the area
          where he will initiate the fire attack. It's allowed to happen, but for
          the sake of your army's morale, you shouldn't let it. Try and take out Zhu
          Ran first if Ling Tong is still alive, because he will be in hyper mode
          until you do beat Zhu Ran. Once you take out Zhu Ran (and Ling Tong if he
          is alive), head north and defeat Gan Ning. After that, head northeast and
          take out Lu Xun, then go and find Sun Shang Xiang, who is a subofficer
          under Sun Quan. A cutscene will happen between Liu Bei and SSX, which
          should make her retreat. Once she starts retreating, that is when you have
          to take her out. You can do this in any order, so you can head right after
          SSX first, but the fire attack will succeed if you do that and Shu's
          morale is very good if you do it like above. Once you defeat SSX, Zhu Ran,
          Lu Xun, Gan Ning and Ling Tong, the valuable item box will appear just
          south of the bridge on the east side of the map.

    ----- Battle of Chang Shan
    ----- Yuan Shao's Forces
    ----- You need to get 1,000 kills. Kill the soldiers around the area where you
          start, then start heading up the western path. Ignore Zhang Yan for now,
          taking the attack base if you can, and head straight for the checkpoint
          just past there. Take out any archer towers nearby and start going to work
          on the enemy, keeping a safe distance away from the Guard Captain at the
          checkpoint, until you get 1,000 KOs. Some members from your forces might
          show up and engage in battle with the checkpoint captain, but you really
          shouldn't have any trouble getting the needed kills. You should be fine,
          though, if you only manage to get around 800-850 KOs, as you can get the
          rest in the castle. It also helps to leave an enemy checkpoint untouched
          if yours gets sealed. Once you reach 1,000 kills, the valuable item box
          will appear in the middle of the castle's courtyard.

    ----- Battle of Fan Castle
    ----- Wu Forces
    ----- As soon as the stage starts, head north and take out Guan Ping, as he will
          foil your plans for the weapon later on in the stage. It is suggested that
          you try and make Fu Shi Ren and Mi Fang to submit to Wu, so head in their
          direction now. Be careful and don't hurt them too much, as once their
          health drops below a certain amount, they will defect. That's one part of
          the requirements done, but be aware that both of those officers need to
          stay alive until you've defeated Zhang Bao and Zhang Fei later on.
          Because of that, I ask that you might want to save now in case something
          happens to them. You will also need to take the one checkpoint just north
          of where you started, since it is hindering the arrival of Xu Huang.
          Eventually, Zhang Fei will show up in the southwest, so immediately head
          over there and take out Zhang Bao first, who is his subofficer. After
          that, defeat Zhang Fei, who is in hyper mode, but he's still easy enough.
          If Mi Fang and Fu Shi Ren are still alive when Zhang Fei goes down, the
          valuable item box will appear just northeast of the dam area in the
          northwest, just along the edge of the map.

    ----- Battle of Bai Di Castle
    ----- Wu Forces
    ----- This will definitely be a challenge as Bai Di Castle is a five-star
          difficulty stage. You have to defeat Ma Chao and Jiang Wei before Yue
          Ying arrives, but the easy part is that you can control Yue Ying's
          appearance. She arrives after a set amount of time has passed once you
          either set foot in Bai Di Castle or defeat Xing Cai (about 2 minutes or so
          after yo do one of those two things). Once the stage starts, go north and
          take out Huang Zhong and seal the checkpoint there as well. Ma Chao will
          probably have withdrawn from the battle for now, so you can start going
          north to the Stone Sentinel Maze.
    
          Defeat Li Yan at the entrance and start heading back down to where Sun
          Quan is located, as Ma Chao will appear to the northwest slightly. He goes
          into hyper mode upon meeting, uses the Attack x2 powerup and also uses
          Musou Rage as you get his health to about 1/2. Once you defeat Ma Chao,
          you can either head for Jiang Wei or start clearing out the troops in the
          southeast corner (seal the checkpoint to allow for reinforcements). When
          you get the to maze (defeat Li Yan if you didn't before), make your way
          through it until you get to the center, destroy the statue and then the
          troops when they appear to conquer the maze. Make your way to Jiang Wei,
          watching out for the one arbalest, then defeat him. Upon his demise, the
          valuable item will appear in the northeast corner the maze.

          you have a horse before attempting it, since you'll be needing it (any one
          will do). As soon as the stage starts, head straight for Cao Cao, ignoring
          anyone else. All you have to do is knock Cao Cao off of his horse before
          he manages to cross the river just to the north of him. Once you do that,
          the valuable item box will appear just a bit southeast of the central
          bridge in the north.

    ----- Conquest of Nan Zhong
    ----- Nanman Forces
    ----- You only have to kill three officers to get the weapon and those officers
          are Wei Yan, Huang Zhong, and Yue Ying. Once the stage starts, head east
          a little bit and you won't have to worry about chasing down Wei Yan, as he
          and his two subofficers will charge your position. After defeating Wei
          Yan, head to the northeast until you get to Huang Zhong. It is about now
          that the explosive pots event will happen in the area to the southwest of
          your current position, so after defeating Huang Zhong, go back down there
          and take out the four task leaders to save Wu Tugu.
    
          Your next, and last, target is Yue Ying, who is in the central area in the
          north. One of the problems is that there are a total of 7 juggernauts in
          the area, so it won't be simple. Jinhuan Sanjie will probably perish,
          which will cause Ahui Nan to defect to Shu. Yang Feng will also probably
          defect to Shu, which will cause some hurt to your morale. Once you defeat
          Yue Ying, the valuable item report will appear in the southern hidden
          passage (darker gray path) on the map.

    ----- Battle of Mt. Ding Jun
    ----- Wei Forces
    ----- Before Cao Cao arrives, you must defeat all enemy officers (doesn't matter
          bout subs) except for Liu Bei and his sub. Cao Cao will show up once
          either Huang Zhong or Xiahou Yuan dies. If you enter the central mountain
          area at all, Huang Zhong will charge down the mountain and take out Xiahou
          Yuan fairly quickly, so avoid doing so. When the stage starts, head south
          and take out Zhao Yun, then head to the area where you started out. Two of
          the officers will come down the mountain (Lu Wan and then Li Yan, shortly
          after), so take them out when they are away from the central mountain.
    
          After taking out both of those officers, head north, go through the base
          and defeat Wei Yan without triggering Huang Zhong's charge (stay along the
          map's edge and lure him towards you). The only ones left you'll need to
          take care of will be Guan Ping and Huang Zhong, so charge the mountaintop
          from the northeast and QUICKLY take out Guan Ping. Cut off Huang Zhong
          afterwards and get ready for a long battle, since Huang Zhong is a monster
          in this battle. He's in hyper mode, uses the Defense x2 powerup throughout
          most of the battle and also uses a Musou Rage when he gets low on health.
          Once you defeat Huang Zhong, the valuable item box will appear just east
          of where Zhao Yun was located in the southeast.

    ----- Conquest of Nan Zhong
    ----- Shu Forces
    ----- In order to get this weapon, you must succeed in all three missions
          against the Nanman troops. The first one, due to your initial position,
          will be the poison lake event. To successfully finish this mission, all
          you have to do is take the base near your beginning position. After you do
          that, make your way to the northcentral area, which will trigger the event
          with the beast units. You simply have to take the enemy base in the
          northeast of that area to finish that mission. 
    
          You might want to save now before the next part. The last event that you
          need to finish is the "invincible" armored troops one. This starts when
          any of your troops enter the middle area where Wu Tugu is located. A task
          force, for your forces, will show up and plant explosive pots to take care
          of the armored troops. You have to defeat Wu Tugu before the task leaders
          are killed. Once you finish all three missions described (in any order),
          the valuable item report will appear in the northwest section of the
          poison lake, just on the path there.

    ----- You must take out all three defense bases in the south before you get the
          message that your castle's walls have been damaged. As soon as the stage
          starts, head straight for the bases (you'll need to get off of your horse
          to go down the ramp) and ignore everyone else. I started with the base in
          the southeast and headed west. Remember to ignore officers as best as you
          can, so you don't waste any time in taking out the bases. Fei Yi will
          probably follow you to the base in the southeast, so defeat him. Jiang Wei
          will bother you while you're attempting the southcentral base, so take him
          out while you're at it. Huang Zhong and Chen Shi will probably bother you
          while you're taking out the southwestern base, so defeat them. Once you
          take all three bases, the valuable item box will appear on the castle's
          wall just south of where you started.

    ----- The Trials of Sun Ce
    ----- Sun Ce's Forces
    ----- Defeat the first Yu Ji clone, then four more will appear. Defeat as many
          as you can before they disappear; it seems to be random when they will
          disappear, since I've defeated all 4 once and another time, they all
          disappeared after the first one. The next batch of clones are accompanied
          by phantom soldiers, so continue defeating the clones. After this, Yu Ji
          will turn your own soldiers against you, so keep defeating them until you
          get 50 KOs. This will cause four more clones to appear, so defeat them and
          then a fake Sun Jian and Da Qiao will appear in the east and west. Take
          them both out and the final test will begin. Eight clones, two in each
          quadrant, will appear on the map. After you defeat the first two, they
          will become stronger and they will go into hyper mode after the second
          pair is defeated. After defeating the third pair, the real Yu Ji will
          appear, but defeat the last two clones before confronting the real Yu Ji.
          After all of the clones are gone, the valuable item box will appear in the
          north area.

    ----- Battle of Si Shui Gate
    ----- Allied Forces
    ----- Make sure you're fairly built up before trying to get this weapon, since
          there is a pretty heavy time limit for what you have to do. You must
          defeat Lu Bu within five minutes of his appearance. At the start of the
          battle, defeat Fan Chou and head into the central area. Defeat Jia Xu,
          Xu Rong and Guo Si, then head towards Si Shui Gate. Since you have a time
          limit, it is crucial that you trigger Lu Bu's appearance. Once you step
          foot on the bridge connecting to Si Shui, Lu Bu will appear and the fun
          begins. Lu Bu will be in hyper mode for the battle and he uses an Attack
          x2 powerup, as well as a Musou Rage when he gets low on health. If you're
          fairly built up, then defeating him in five minutes shouldn't be hard at
          all. Once you do, the valuable item box will appear in the area in front
          of Si Shui Gate.

    ----- Battle of Chi Bi
    ----- Allied Forces
    ----- You should try for this weapon in Musou Mode, as it is only Sun Quan's
          second stage but it has a difficulty of 5 stars in Free Mode. The ultimate
          goal is to have all three stages of the fire attack succeed. When the
          stage begins, play it normally until Pang Tong mentions his plan to try
          and link the ships together. To do that, you have to defeat Wang Lang on
          the eastern bridge and Cai Mao on the western bridge. Once you defeat both
          and the bridges are destroyed, head over to the western side of the map
          and defeat Zhang Liao's subofficers, who should be inching their way to
          the altar.
    
          After both are gone, start inching your way up the left side of the map,
          sealing the checkpoint and taking out Xiahou Yuan, who should be heading
          down to your direction now. Keep heading north, along that side, and take
          out Zhang Liao and Cao Zhen, as well as sealing the checkpoint near there.
          By now, Huang Gai should be at the fire ship and should be setting out
          soon (for some reason, he's a beast on this stage so you don't really need
          to worry about him). Soon, Zhuge Liang's prayer for the wind will be
          successful and the fire attack will happen very shortly after. Once the
          fire attack happens, the valuable item box will appear on the large boat
          south of the large boat with Cao Cao on it.

    ----- The Invasion of Nan Zhong
    ----- Wu Forces
    ----- Don't touch a single officer for now. Instead, ride south (you should have
          Red Hare to make this 4th weapon easier) and head east along the southern
          path to trigger Meng Huo to appear more in the north, as well as
          triggering reinforcements on both side of your main camp and a task force
          just south of the bridge near it. Head up north and wait by Sun Quan until
          you see the bridge destroyed (DON'T TOUCH ANY OFFICERS YET). When it is
          destroyed, hang around Sun Quan until you get an event where the two of
          them talk, then SAVE.
    
          The next part you need to do is the hardest. You have to defeat every
          single subofficer and officer on the map, including the three
          reinforcements that show up later. Luckily, there are only three
          subofficers on the map: Dong Tu Na and Ahui Nan are in the middle of the
          map, while Meng You is near the southeast corner. You have to deal the
          deathblow to each officer, so if any other person gets the last hit, then
          simply reset and continue from the last save. When the event between SSX
          and Sun Quan happens, go and take out Mang Yachang and King Mulu first.
          Next, go to the middle and take out Dong Tu Na and Ahui Nan, then journey
          southeast to get Meng You. After that, the rest should be simple; Wu Tugu
          appears on the west side of the map and Yang Feng appears just south of
          Meng Huo. Once you get all of the officers, the valuable item box will
          appear on the west side of the map, next to the river.

          sprung on him, which makes him to call out for help in the form of Zhou
          Tai. Your goal is to defeat Sun Quan before Zhou Tai meets up with him,
          then defeat Zhou Tai afterwards. As soon as the battle starts, head over
          to the fort on the right side of the map and wait for Sun Quan to get
          ambushed. Once he does and calls out for Zhou Tai, defeat him quickly,
          then go after Zhou Tai and get him as well. Once you do that, the valuable
          item box will appear in front of the checkpoint next to the one where Sun
          Ce shows up.

          corridor, ignoring the two ambushes and open up the east gate. Go through
          it, then go south to the castle's ledge. Follow this ledge to the west,
          defeating the three defense captains when you spot them. After this, you
          need to journey over to the west side of the map where you'll find the
          last defense captain along the castle's wall ledge. Once you defeat all
          four, the valuable item box will show up on the castle's wall just south
          of Sima Yi's position, so head up the stairs nearby, grab the weapon and
          go back down to finish the stage by defeating Sima Yi.

          begins, rush over there to confront him. Note that some of the lesser
          officers may show up to bother you, but it shouldn't take too long to
          defeat Guan Ping (watch out for the archers on the one side of the area).
          Once the water attack is stopped, the valuable item box will appear in the
          middle of the fort in the southwest corner. From there, it's just a matter
          of finishing the stage by beating Guan Yu. Note that Guan Yu goes into

    ----- Battle of Bai Di Castle
    ----- Shu Forces
    ----- This is definitely not going to be an easy battle, as Bai Di Castle has a
          difficulty of five stars. You'll definitely want to be close to maxed out,
          so make sure you do that before attempting to get this. Once the battle
          starts, head down the path and try and take out both of Sun Shao's
          subgenerals, as well as Sun Shao if you can. By this time, the peasant
          militia should have shown up just west of your position, so head over
          there and clear the area of any officers. You know you've saved them when
          they say they are going back to protect the castle.
    
          The next part is a bit tricky, but before you do that, go north and take
          out Zhou Tai since he has started to move after the peasant thing. Once
          you do that, your goal is to purposefully get your health low enough so
          that Liu Chan will come out of the castle, via the south gate, and try to
          rendezvous with you. Once he comes out of the castle, go and meet him to
          get an event where the two of them talk to each other. After that, you
          have to lead Liu Chan back into the castle, which should trigger the
          valuable item box to appear in the northwest corner of the castle (there's
          a +400 whole chicken in a pot just south of the weapon to refill your
          health).

    ----- Battle of Chang Ban
    ----- Cao Cao's Forces
    ----- You have to defeat both Guan Yu and Zhang Fei, but only after Liu Qi shows
          up in the southeast corner. Once the stage begins, head to the southern
          passage and claim the one neutral base down there (this will keep Liu Bei
          from escaping later on). Avoid taking any of the neutral bases in the
          middle, as this will slow down Liu Bei's progress and make getting the
          weapon more difficult. Once Liu Bei gets to the middle, he'll stop for a
          while, so take this opportunity and get rid of some of the officers. After
          a while, Guan Yu will show up in the southwest corner and Liu Bei will
          head down there. A little later, Liu Qi will show up in the southeast
          corner and Liu Bei will start heading there (if you captured the base at
          the bottom, he'll be stuck for now). Quickly defeat Guan Yu and Zhang Fei
          and the valuable item box will appear near where Guan Yu showed up, so
          grab it and defeat Liu Bei afterwards to finish.

    ----- Battle of Tong Gate
    ----- Cao Cao's Forces
    ----- The first thing you need to do is NOT kill Han Sui, since the requirements
          to get the weapon are to defeat Ma Chao and Pang De. The battle is over if
          all three are defeated, so ignore Cao Cao when he tells you to charge to
          the north. When the stage begins, head west and defeat Li Kan, then head
          to the area in front of Tong Gate. This is where things get annoying,
          since there are A LOT of archers around the area, as well as a few other
          officers. To make things worse, Ma Chao is in hyper mode during the battle
          and he uses the Attack x2 powerup, as well as a Musou Rage when low on
          health. When he is defeated, it's time to go after Pang De, but he is
          pretty much a clone of Ma Chao on this stage. That means he is in hyper
          mode, uses some powerups and a Musou Rage when low on health. When both of
          them are gone, the valuable item box will appear on the river just west of
          where you started.

    ----- Battle of Guan Du

    ----- The first thing you must do is protect Yan Liang and Wen Chou throughout
          the requirement section. The only problem is that Guan Yu will defeat
          both pretty quickly should he come into contact with them. Thus, the very
          first thing you should do when the battle begins is go charge Guan Yu and
          take him out. Now, play the rest of the battle out normally, taking bases
          and defeating officers. Your goal is to demoralize Cao Cao's army enough
          so that his troops will open the side doors of the castle in the south.
          When they finally do open, the valuable item box will appear on the
          castle's wall on the east side.

    ----- Battle of Wu Zhang Plains
    ----- Shu Forces
    ----- This is definitely a tough weapon to get, seeing as Wu Zhang Plains has a
          difficulty of five stars. Your only objective is to defeat Deng Ai before
          he can set up the catapults. Deng Ai will show up in the battle when
          either enough time passes or you enter one of the three supply depots on
          the frontline. When the stage starts, go north and defeat Guo Huai, then
          go east a bit and take out the checkpoint there. You should also take out
          Cao Rui, as well as the checkpoint north of where you started and the
          attack base on the west side. Once that is done, head to the western
          supply base and take out the gate captain in front.
    
          Rush straight through the base and Deng Ai should appear when you first
          step foot in the base. Charge Deng Ai and try to take him out as soon as
          possible, but make sure that he doesn't get too far away from you since he
          will ignore you completely. If you manage to take him out before he sets
          up the catapults, the valuable item box will appear on the western side
          of the eastern supply base, on the enemy's side. You should go and defeat
          Zhong Hui, who should be pretty far along into your territory, then defeat
          each officer one by one until only Sima Yi is left. Go grab the weapon,
          then you can finish the stage.

          to stay on the bridge, since you'll need to do some fast killing. Right
          after you tell your bodyguard to stay, charge towards Wen Pin's position
          and defeat him. Find Xiahou Dun next and take him out. Your last target
          is Xiahou En, who is Yu Jin's subofficer, and he can be found in the
          northwest corner. Once you kill all three men, the valuable item box will
          appear back at the bridge.

    ----- When the battle starts, head for the area where Wang Ping is located.
          Take out his subofficer first (not needed), then head for Wang Ping
          himself. Seal the checkpoint nearby as well, which will give you the
          signal that you've taken one part of the mountain base. From here, head
          south and take out Jiang Wei, who is in hyper mode but is still easy.
          Now, move on to the area where Gao Xiang is and do the same thing as you
          did with the previous area. Once you take him out and the checkpoint, Ma
          Su will become isolated on top of the mountain. Head up there, but don't
          touch him yet, since there is one more event that needs to happen before
          you can take him out. Take out any of Ma Su's remaining subs and keep
          attacking peons until he actually starts to physically retreat to the
          southwest corner. Once he says something along the lines of "swallowing
          his pride," he will begin his retreat, so defeat him. The valuable item
          box will appear in the northern passage that leads into and out of the
          mountaintop area.

    ----- The Yellow Turban Rebellion
    ----- Yellow Turbans
    ----- This is probably the hardest fourth weapon in the game, mainly due to the
          fact that the requirements are strict and Zhang Jiao isn't exactly the
          best character in the game. The first thing you need to do is not have any
          of your officers killed. That is pretty much the hardest part of this
          weapon, especially when you take into consideration that this stage has a
          difficulty of 5 stars.
    
          When the stage starts, I recommend that you charge south and go to one of
          the two altars. Your goal at each one is to stay put and try to convert
          Sun Jian and Cao Cao. Just stay at the altars long enough to trigger the
          conversion of Cao Cao and Sun Jian. Once you get one, zip to the other
          altar for the other. Once you convert both, I would recommend that you
          SAVE. If anyone is going to die soon on your side, it would be about now
          so that's why it's important to save. Defeat Zhu Jun, who should be
          nearby, then go to the east and take out Huangfu Song. The last thing you
          need to do to make the weapon appear is have Zhang Man Cheng drop the
          boulders, which is achieved once he gets to the end of the semi-circular
          path just west of your main camp. Defeat Gongsun Yue and he should move to
          the end of the path. Once you convert Cao Cao and Sun Jian and have the
          boulders dropped without any of your officers defeated, the valuable item
          box will appear in front of the altar in the middle of the map.

    ----- Wei Forces
    ----- You must either get 750 KOs or defeat any 9 officers on the map, including
          subgenerals, within 10 minutes of the start of the stage, at which point
          the enemy will call Zhang Liao a demon or something like that. The easier
          of the two is to kill the 9 officers, so this guide will only include
          that; remember to go straight after the officers and try not to waste too
          much time on the peons. When the stage starts, seek out Pan Zhang's two
          subofficers in the area, one who should be south of the base and the other
          being somewhere close to it. After that, seek out Pan Zhang and quickly
          make short work of him. The Wu soldiers will be amazed by Zhang Liao's
          might after three officers are gone.
    
          Go into the next area and find Zhou Fang south of the base and Zhu Huan
          north of it. That will be numbers 4 and 5 out of 9. Around this time, the
          task unit will have destroyed the bridge and the Wu forces will begin to
          retreat (Lu Meng and Taishi Ci). Go north of the last area and you can
          find Taishi Ci's subofficers near the base in the northeast. The Wu
          soldiers will be in awe of Zhang Liao's might after 6 officers are down.
          Taishi Ci's subs will make a total of 7 officers defeated, so round the
          corner and start heading south along the east edge of the map. Zhu Zhi
          should be heading in your direction, so take him out (8 officers). Keep
          going south until you run into Jiang Qin, one of Sun Quan's subs. The Wu
          soldiers will be afraid of Zhang Liao's might after the 9 officers are
          defeated. The valuable item box will appear on one of the islands next to
          the broken bridge; you can only approach it from the south.

    ----- Battle of Yi Ling
    ----- Wu Forces
    ----- Make sure you bring a horse, as you have to defeat Zhao Yun and he is
          located on the opposite side of the map from you. After you defeat Zhao
          Yun, all you have to do is make sure the fire attack happens, so be
          certain that Zhu Ran reaches his destination. Once you take out Zhao Yun,
          go north and defeat Sha Moke. By about this time, Zhu Ran will probably
          drop the bridgelayer and will begin moving. Make sure he gets to his
          destination, which will make the fire attack happen. Liu Bei will retreat
          to the southwest corner and the valuable item box will appear inside the
          Stone Sentinel Maze, straight south from the southern entrance. Once you
          get the weapon, traverse through the rest of the maze and defeat Liu Bei
          once you get out.

          officers in each of them. At the beginning of the stage, get into the
          fortress just to the east of your starting location and defeat Yan Baihu,
          which will make that fortress yours. With that done, head to the other
          fort on the west side of the map and go inside. All you have to do here is
          defeat Wang Lang. Once you take both forts, the valuable item box will

    ----- The first thing you do NOT want to do is go and destroy the bridge just
          south of Lu Meng's position. As long as you don't get close to it, you
          should be fine. With that in mind, you have to defeat Gan Ning and Jiang
          Qin, both of whom show up as reinforcements later on in the battle. Feel
          free to clear out the middle area, taking into mind not to get too close
          to the bridge. Clear out the western path and then just play the waiting
          game. About 17 minutes into the battle, King Mulu will get antsy and
          charge ahead despite orders, breaking through the walls on the east side
          of Wu's camp. Gan Ning and Jiang Qin should show up now on the west side
          of the map, so go and defeat them both. Once both are gone, the valuable
          item box will appear right next to the bridge you were supposed to
          destroy, on the southern side.

    ----- Once the stage begins, go and defeat Xiahou Mao to take the fort of Nan
          An. Once you do that, head to the west and take An Ding by defeating Cui
          Liang. Once you take both forts, Jiang Wei will begin heading back to the
          fort (Tian Shui) at the top of the map. Cut him off and get ready for a
          longer battle than usual, since he goes into hyper mode when you meet up
          with him. Once you defeat him, I suggest that you save your game using the
          interim save. The valuable item box will appear in the middle of the
          eastern fort (Nan An). Of course, Ma Zun will start to retreat to the
          checkpoint on the west side of the map, so be quick in retrieving the
          weapon and stopping his escape.

    ----- Battle of Hu Lao Gate
    ----- Allied Forces
    ----- All you have to do to get the weapon is defeat Lu Bu. Lu Bu appears at Hu
          Lao Gate when the first gate opens, which is achieved by defeating the
          gate captain there. Lu Bu is in hyper mode during the whole battle
          (stronger than normal) and uses Musou Rage when he gets low on health.
          Of course, you'll want to be a bit beefed up before even attempting to
          get this weapon. There is no time limit, so take your time and pick away
          at his health until you defeat him. Once defeated, the valuable Item
          report will appear on the castle's wall right near where Lu Bu first
          appeared. Go through that small room, turn west and go up the stairs, then
          go all the way east to find the crate with the weapon.

    There are two types of items in Dynasty Warriors 5, normal ones and rare ones.
    Normal ones include the stat increasing items that you'll find pretty much every
    single battle (if you look for them). The rare items only appear when special
    conditions are fulfilled in particular battles. These include the saddles, orbs
    and some other items. All items can be found on Easy, except for the orbs, which
    are found on Hard or Chaos. The normal items will be listed first just to show
    what's in the game. Note that all stats-enhancing items have a maximum attribute
    of 20.
    
    -----NOTE
    ORBS are the only items that you need to get on HARD or CHAOS. The rest of the
    rare items can be gotten on any difficulty.

    (  RED HARE HARNESS  )
     '=================='
    ----- Battle of Chang Shan
    ----- Yuan Shao's Forces
    ----- Start the battle already riding Red Hare
    ----- You must first defeat either Zhang Fei, Guan Yu, or Liu Bei and upon
          doing so, you must kill the other two within two minutes. One of the
          problems is that Guan Yu and Zhang Fei are subgenerals under Liu Bei, so
          defeating him first will cause them to run away, thus it's better if you
          start with either Zhang Fei or Guan Yu. It helps to weaken Liu Bei's
          health to at least half or so before attempting to go after the other two.
          It also helps to use a character that can make short work of the trio, as
          well as playing on Easy.
    
    
     .==================.
    (  HEX MARK HARNESS  )
     '=================='
    ----- Battle of Cheng Du
    ----- Liu Bei's Forces
    ----- Start the battle already riding Hex Mark; Hex Mark also gives the player
          some luck, similar to the Seven Star Sash, but you only need to equip it
          and not be on the horse for the luck
    ----- All you have to do to get this saddle is defeat Zhang Ren before Pang Tong
          reaches his position and he gets killed by Zhang Ren's ambush. I would
          refrain from picking anyone who starts on the south end of the map. As
          soon as the stage starts, rush towards Zhang Ren and quickly defeat him
          as soon as possible. Once he's gone, the valuable item report will appear
          in the middle of the forest.

    (  STORM HARNESS  )
     '==============='
    ----- Battle of Guan Du
    ----- Cao Cao's Forces
    ----- Start the battle already riding Storm Runner
    ----- You have to defeat Wen Chou and Yan Liang to get this harness. The problem
          is that at the start of the battle, Guan Yu will head to Yan Liang and
          make short work of him, so you'll have to make sure you get there first
          before Yan Liang gets killed. Of course, you can always play as Guan Yu so
          you won't have to worry about him stealing the kill and makes getting this
          saddle a lot easier than normal. Once you take care of Yan Liang (you can
          get his subgeneral first if you're Guan Yu), go over and take out Wen
          Chou. Once you defeat Wen Chou, the valuable item report will appear in
          the northern, thin path leading into Yuan Shao's camp.
    
    
     .================.
    (  SHADOW HARNESS  )
     '================'
    ----- Battle of Liang Province
    ----- Allied Forces
    ----- Start the battle already riding Shadow Runner; You get a boost in mounted
          attack and defense with this harness and you cannot be knocked off of the
          horse at all
    ----- This is definitely the hardest harness to get in the game. Make sure you
          have Red Hare and a slightly built up character before going after this
          harness (Ma Chao works wonders). You have to defeat the reinforcements
          Zhang Ji and Hu Zhen within 45 seconds of them showing up. The only
          problem is that they show up at opposite corners of the map. They won't
          show up until after Dong Zhuo's unit appears. As soon as the battle
          starts, head to the southwest corner and clear it out, including the base
          and any generals. After that, go to the northeast corner and do the same.
          Now, we play the waiting game.
    
          We're waiting until Dong Zhuo shows up, which is your signal to SAVE,
          since we won't have to go through all of the prerequisite stuff. Wait by
          the gate until Dong Zhuo says "Hah! You think I'd come without a plan?"
          That is when they will show up, so get ready for some intense and fast
          killing. Kill Hu Zhen and don't worry about picking up what he drops,
          since you'll need to ride like the wind to Zhang Ji, who should be heading
          north. Quickly take him and out and if you were fast enough, you'll
          receive the valuable item report. The box is in the middle of the map,
          just north of the northeast corner of the base in the middle. If you don't
          make it in time, simply soft reset your system and continue from where you
          saved.

    (  ELEPHANT HARNESS  )
     '=================='
    ----- Battle of Nan Zhong
    ----- Nanman Forces
    ----- Begin the battle already riding an elephant; Regular attack is a thrust
          forward, charge is a stomp and the musou attack is a combination of the
          two
    ----- To get this harness, you'll need to defeat Zhang Bao, Zhang Liang and Bo
          Zhang within 5 minutes of the beginning of the stage. Make sure to bring
          a horse along to make sure you make the time limit. When the stage begins,
          quickly defeat Zhang Jiao and Pei Yuan Shao nearby, then head north and
          make short work of Zhang Bao. After that, make your way to the southeast
          corner of the map to Zhang Liang, who should have converted some of the
          Nanman troops by now. Take him out quickly and make your way to the last
          officer, Bo Zhang. To get to Bo Zhang, you'll need to take out the supply
          base first, then you'll have access to him. If you defeat all three
          officers within 5 minutes, you should get the valuable item report in the
          middle of the poison lake nearby.

    (  FIRE ORB  )

    ----- Battle of Si Shui Gate
    ----- Allied Forces
    ----- Causes extra damage to enemies from most charge attacks
    ----- You have to defeat 200 enemies within the first two minutes of the stage
          starting. You should choose a character that starts near the middle area
          and preferably one that is quite buffed up in terms of stats so that the
          peons go down in a few hits. Once you get to the middle, get off of your
          horse (or stay on if you're using someone like Ma Chao) and go to work on
          the sea of red. Once you complete the objective, the valuable item box
          will appear in the base in the northeast corner.

    ----- Battle of Guan Du
    ----- Yuan Shao's Forces
    ----- Has a chance to freeze enemies; Attacks do more damage than normal while
          frozen
    ----- Your goal is to defeat Cao Pi before Guan Yu retreats, which shouldn't be
          too hard. Guan Yu will defeat Yan Liang fairly early in the battle, which
          will cause Wen Chou to charge towards him. Once he defeats Wen Chou, he'll
          announce his retreat, so you'll need to defeat Cao Pi before that. Once
          the stage begins, immediately charge towards Cao Pi, who is in front of
          the castle where Cao Cao is situated. Once you defeat him, the valuable
          item report will appear inside the Wu Chao supply depot to the north of
          your location.

    (  SHADOW ORB  )
     '============'
    ----- Battle of Wu Zhang Plains
    ----- Wei Forces
    ----- Consumes your musou for a chance of instantly killing regular soldiers
    ----- This is definitely a tough item to get, as Wu Zhang Plains has a
          difficulty of 5 stars. Of course, all you have to do is kill Jiang Wei,
          but it's definitely easier said than done because of a hidden fact that
          Zhuge Liang dies on the stage and Jiang Wei will become the commander.
          Thus, it will be impossible for you to get the item if that happens, so
          you have to be swift in killing Jiang Wei. It definitely helps that you
          have a nearly maxed out character with a 4th weapon, making it a bit
          easier on yourself. Zhuge Liang passes away when you kill any three
          officers, so you can kind of control the situation there.

          move on and defeat the first gate officer, Kong Xiu. You are free to seal
          the enemy checkpoints in between the gates, but it is not a requirement
          for the item. Go to the second gate and kill Han Fu, then defeat Xu Huang
          at the third gate. When you defeat Xu Huang, the valuable item box will

    This section will list the drops of each officer in every difficulty of the
    game. These drops are for FREE MODE ONLY, since difficulty is the only thing
    that affects the values. If an officer has a subofficer, then the subofficer
    will be listed underneath at an indentation. It is possible to upgrade the stats
    of a drop, with a certain amount of hits from a combo. The following is the
    required number of hits, without the bodyguard skill Link:
    
    +1 to +2 -- 8-hit combo (5-hit with Link)
    +2 to +4 -- 16-hit combo (13-hit with Link)
    +4 to +8 -- 24-hit combo (20-hit with Link)
    
    The order in which the stages are listed below are the order in which they are
    listed in Free Mode. Remember that all drops shown are without the doubling
    bonus gotten from the combos. Here is a small legend for you when looking at the
    drop tables:
    
    ATT = Attack
    DEF = Defense
    LIFE = Dim Sum

    * Yuan Shu and Ji Ling, along with their subgenerals, will show up if Gao Shun
      manages to reinforce the floodgates all the way. It usually takes a very long
      time for this to happen, so most people won't see them unless they
      deliberately do nothing to make sure no one else defeats Gao Shun.

    * The fake Jiang Wei will appear in front of Tian Shui (upper fort) as long as
      Ma Zun is inside of it. He only leaves when you defeat the four officers that
      are attacking the two other forts. Gao Xiang will only appear when Ma Zun
      starts running away, which happens when the two front gates of Tian Shui are
      opened by the enemy.

    ============|                 XIII. BODYGUARDS (J100)               |===========
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ|                                                       |ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
                O~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~O
    
    Unlike the past few games where you had a group of bodyguards that grew in
    numbers as they developed, you'll have the choice of bringing only one
    bodyguard into battle this time around. It may sound bad, but the bodyguards
    have been beefed up a lot for this game, so they can sometimes take care of
    themselves. You do not, and cannot, create any bodyguards, but that isn't a
    problem.
    
    After finishing any battle, there is a chance that a bodyguard will want to
    join you. You can only keep 8 bodyguards at one time, and they're available to
    every character. Whenever a bodyguard wants to join you after a battle, you'll
    be told about two aspects that relate to how the bodyguards stats will grow.
    One tells you how your stats start out and how fast they grow, while the other
    aspect tells you how many of the four stats will grow. They are as follows:
    
    Known in 1 kingdom -- C
    Known in 2 kingdoms -- B
    Known in 3 kingdoms -- A
    Known throughout the land -- S
    
    Veteran -- Initial stats are high, but development will be difficult
    Remarkable -- Initial stats and development are average
    Brilliant -- Initial stats are low, but development is high
    Superior -- Initial stats are high and development is high
    
    As you can see above, the best bodyguard would be a Superior/S one, but that one
    is quite rare to get on its own. All ranks of Superior bodyguards have a chance
    to max all of their stats, as well as a Brilliant/S, Remarkable/S, or Veteran/S
    bodyguard. At first, the two aspects may seem to be randomly attached when you
    get a bodyguard to join you, but it appears that your system (PS2) clock has
    something to do with it (check out AceLegend90's S/S Bodyguard FAQ on GameFAQs
    for more).

    UNFINISHED...Wu's Walkthrough, Items, Officer Drop List, Bodyguards, Characters
                 Section, Challenge Mode
    
    
    5/25/05....I have finished the stage walkthroughs for Wei and Others. I have
               also finished strategies for all of the 4th weapons and did a few
               stages for the Officer Drop List section.
    
    5/14/05....I have finished the Officer Drop List for Easy on all stages,
               although I'm missing an officer here and there on some stages. Also,
               I've finished both sides of Wu Zhang Plains for all difficulties.
    
    5/13/05....I have finished the Wei walkthroughs up to Tong Gate. I also removed
               the Quotes section for now and have posted all of the stages for the
               Officer Drop List section. Another notable change is for my e-mail
               address, so please don't send any e-mail to the other address that
               was posted.
    
    5/10/05....I have layed out the design for the whole guide, although I may scrap
               a section or two in the end. I also submitted it to GameFAQs and
               hopes it gets accepted.
    
    5/8/05.....I finished the walkthrough for Shu and have started on Wei's Musou
               Modes. I have all of the stats for the 4th weapons, although only
               about half of the weapons have strategies.
    
    4/28/05....I have changed the layout for the Musou Mode walkthroughs and
               finished half of Shu. I also add a few more 4th weapons.
    
    4/23/05....I have finished adding the names for the 1st through 3rd weapons and
               have the names/stats for 29 of the 48 4th weapons.
    
    4/12/05....I started the FAQ and made the basic layout, although I'm still not
               sure what other things to include in the guide.

    Q) When was Dynasty Warriors 5 released?
    A) It was released on March 29, 2005 in the United States.
    
    Q) Your method for getting an item/4th weapon doesn't work. What do I do?
    A) All of the methods to get the rare items and the 4th weapons have been tested
       three times by me. Make sure that you're playing on Hard for the 4th weapons
       and orbs and also be sure that the 1st player is fulfilling all of the
       requirements, if you happen to be playing co-op. The 2-player trick has been,
       for the most part, eliminated from the game.
    
    Q) Does that mean I can use 2 players to get the weapons/items?
    A) There are some instances with fourth weapons, where the 1st player only has
       to trigger an event on the stage. If you have to defeat an officer or other
       person, then the 1st player must do that.
    
    Q) Why did you do the Musou walkthroughs that way instead of doing them
       individually?
    A) A lot of characters have the same walkthroughs as other characters, which
       would mean that there would be multiple walkthroughs being the exact same. It
       may be a little confusing at first, but it works out better for both you and
       me. The filesize is reduced by a good bit and it's easier for me, too.
    
    Q) Why is the Officer Drops section only for Free mode?
    A) Except for difficulty, Free mode drops are always static. Musou Mode stages
       have that one important changing factor that makes the drops harder to track,
       which is stage order. Because of stage order, they do not retain the Free
       mode level of difficulty (shown by the stars), meaning the drops different
       from Musou to Musou. In total, one would have to play each Musou a total of
       4 times (one for each difficulty) to get all of the drops.
