Zhang Fei Character Biography
__________________________________________________________________

Originally a meat butcher, Zhang Fei made a name for himself during the 
Yellow Turban Rebellion, which is where he met his future "brothers" 
(they never actually made an oath), he went on to create the kingdom of 
Shu with them.  His major feat, is when he held off Cao Cao's army at 
the battle of Chang Ban, so that Liu Bei, may escape:

"At the sound of this thunderous voice, a terrible quaking fear seized 
upon Cao Cao, and he bade them take the umbrella away. Turning to his 
followers, he said, "Guan Yu had said that his brother Zhang Fei was 
the sort of man to go through an army of a hundred legions and take the 
head of its commander-in-chief, and do it easily. Now here is this 
terror in front of us and we must be careful." As he finished speaking, 
again that terrible voice was heard, 'I am Zhang Fei of Yan; who dares 
fight with me?'"

Although depicted as a violent alcoholic, Zhang Fei was actually an 
extremely intelligent man, and showed great respect for his superiors, 
but the same cannot be said about his inferiors. He later became one of 
Shu's five tiger generals.

(Battle of Chang Ban)                 

Bring a STRONG bodyguard to this battle, and command them to Stay at 
the bridge. Now, successfully defend your bridge, don't let anyone 
across. Kill anyone who attempts to pass the bridge, just stay n' slay, 
your one stop shop for carnage and death, this is to help and keep Liu Bei 
Alive. After the advancements from the west stop, if you're feeling brave, 
you may advance on the gate above you, and destroy that. As Xiahou Dun 
and Wen Pin come, slay them.  Once Cao Zhang's reinforcements have 
arrived, and you've defeated them (of course) go after Xiahou En, 
Yu Jin's sub-general.  When the three generals are dead, the valuable 
item will appear right on the bridge that you defended.  Now, just protect 
Liu Bei until he escapes, or Kill Cao Cao when he appears.

Zhang Fei's Pros and Cons
__________________________________________________________________

Pros:

His C2 is quite strong, and his attack strength is excellent.  His jump 
charge is a great crowd clearer, and he has good skills on a horse.  
His battles are all relatively easy, so there should be no real trouble 
fighting; the same goes for his 4th weapon.

Cons:
He is SLOW.  That and his C4 and C5 are way too similar, other then 
that, he's good.

Zhang Fei's Moves
__________________________________________________________________

Charge: Stamps the ground, knocking enemies down.  It does not do good 
damage at all, but it is useful for making escapes, and getting ready 
to nail the enemy.

Jumping Charge: jumps, flips, and then falls down, stabbing the ground 
with spear and creating a huge explosion.

S: slashes right.

S2: Slashes right, then attacks left with butt of the spear.

S3: Slashes right, then attacks left with butt of the spear, then 
slashes right again.

S4: Slashes right, then attacks left with butt of the spear, slashes 
right again, and then slashes left with the blade.

S5: Slashes right, then attacks left with butt of the spear, slashes 
right again, slashes left with the blade, and then slashes right with 
blade once more.

right again, slashes left with the blade, slashes right with blade once 
more, and then spins and stabs forward with blade.
(Evolution attack now triggered, if acquired.)

C1: Slashes right, then attacks upwards in an uppercut fashion.

C2: Slashes right, then attacks left with butt of the spear, then 
slashes in an X pattern repeatedly, finishing by slamming butt of the 
spear on the ground, emitting a blue energy wave.  Attack is longer if 
you keep pressing triangle.

C3: Slashes right, then attacks left with butt of the spear, slashes 
right again, and then does a 360-spin attack.

C4: Slashes right, then attacks left with butt of the spear, slashes 
right again, slashes left with the blade, and then jumps and slams 
ground, making an explosion.

right again, slashes left with the blade, slashes right with blade once 
more, and then stamps ground, making an explosion.

spinning and slashing forward.

Zhang Fei's Best Items
__________________________________________________________________
Orb - Ice

Harness - Red Hare

Item 1. -Tiger Amulet

Item 2. -Peacock Amulet

Item 3. -Horned Helm

Item 4. -Way of Musou

Item 5. -Demon Band

Why? - 

Ice Orb - Because freezing people is fun, and it helps finish them off 
before they can finish you off.  

Red Hare - Because he's the fastest horse in the game, Duh.  I like him 
the best, so I don't use any other animal.

Tiger Amulet - Because it adds strength to your officer, and I think 
all officers should have this equipped.

Peacock Amulet - Because it adds health to your officer, and I think 
all officers should have this equipped.

Horned Helm - Zhang Fei is SLOW.  So, he tends to be on his horse a 
lot, so this helps with that extra attack strength you need, while 
charging through enemy lines.

Way of Musou - His True Musou is 10x better then his normal Musou, so 
its 
useful.

Demon Band - Makes his true Musou longer, so read above... This helps.

Zhang Fei's Musou
__________________________________________________________________

Battle of Hu Lao Gate - Red Hare is a big help here. Charge forward, 
only killing a couple of that huge group there, and head up to Xu Rong, 
kill him and take the gate which he's by.  From there on, take the 
attack base, killing anyone in your way, and head to the supply base.  
Head to Hu Lao Gate, killing Hu Zhen, when you see him.  Take out the 
gate that you pass when you first come into the opening, and clear out 
a ton of units, including officers: Guo Si, Zhao Cen, Li Jue, Wang 
Fang, Li Meng and Gao Shun when he come out.  DO NOT KILL THE GATE 
CAPTAIN BY HU LAO GATE! LET SOMEONE ELSE DO IT.  Go clear the gate on 
the other side of the clearing, where Li Jue is, which can give you 
quite a bit of kills.  When Lu Bu finally is unleashed, if you're 
feeling a little brave, charge him.  Wait for the cut scene, and flee, 
go help Cao Cao defeat Li Ru, and let your brothers take care of Lu Bu 
for a while.  When you come back, he should have a sizable portion of 
his health taken out.  Help them take him on, till your close to death, 
then just don't risk it, take off.  Be warned, STAY AWAY FROM HIM WHEN 
HE GLOWS RED OR GOLD, HE WILL KILL YOU IF HE ATTACKS, EVEN FROM JUST 
ONE!!!! If you didn't kill him, head up through Zhang Liao, kill him, 
listen to the little conversation, and head for Dong Zhuo.  Watch it, 
he will call for help from Lu Bu, so eliminate him fast.

Battle of Xia Pi - go forward, and attack the Defense, base, then the 
attack base above that (make sure you don't keep your bodyguard around 
the attack base, or they'll eventually die, in fact, I suggest that you 
command your bodyguard to stay before you go down the flight of 
stairs). By the attack base is Yin Li, so kill him too. Now, head back 
up the stairs, and kill off Wei Xu, and head into the castle, closing 
the gate and killing Diao Chan. Now, as you'll notice, those damn doors 
won't open. Damn, so head around the castle, over to the defense base 
that Cao Hong is struggling to defeat, and destroy all those pesky 
bases in that area, including Song Xian and Hou Cheng, who are to the 
left of the defense base.  Now, head north, and kill Zang Ba, and the 
gate up by him.  Next, head east, and kill Cao Xing then Zhang Liao, 
along with the supply base.  Next, head to Gao Shun, and along with his 
defeat, is the collapse of the dam.  Now, just head into the castle, 
slay the soldiers, and kill (or capture) Lu Bu. P.S: If you fail to 
take the dam in time, and Yuan Shu's reinforcements show up, don't 
worry, they're in the southeast corner, just go and kill him.

Battle of Chang Ban - Here is the stuff of Zhang Fei's legends.  You 
start off on a very historical bridge, the one whose toll for passage, 
is death.  Kill anyone who attempts to pass the bridge, just stay n' 
slay, your one stop shop for carnage and death. After the advancements 
from the west stop, if you're feeling brave, you may advance on the 
gate above you, and destroy that.  Next, move westward, and kill the 
attack base, WHILE BEING CAUTIOUS, DO NOT LET ANY TROOPS PAST THAT 
BRIDGE!!! Watch out, Cao Zhang arrives with reinforcements, right above 
the bridges position. When that area is safe from invasion, head 
farther west, and take out the gate and Yu Jin, finishing off with the 
left-most gate.  Now, the north should be safe for a while, so head 
south, to Xu Huang's unit and the supply base, to defeat them. Head 
farther south to the defense and attack bases, and destroy them, along 
with Cao Hong and Jia Xu (sub-generals: Jia Kui and Yue Jin are there 
as well).  Now, you have two choices: -A.) Help Liu Bei escape, in 
which case, just kill till he reaches the end, Or-B.) Go up and kill 
Cao Cao, ending the battle right there.

Battle of Cheng Du - Start off and charge the gate ahead of you, kill 
Lei Tong to open it.  Once inside, kill Fei Guan and Deng Xian, and 
finally Liu Xun.  To the north of the castle is the gate captain, open 
the castle's northern gates.  Now, move out of the left castle gate, to 
Li Yan, kill him and the soldiers in that little area, and then move 
into Cheng Du castle.  Once Cheng Du is cleared out, head north, and 
kill Zhang Ren, if Pang Tong hasn't already died, you just saved him. 
Now, go in front of Cheng Du, to clear out Yan Yan and Wu Lan.  
Eventually, the inner gates of Cheng Du Castle will open, go inside, 
clear the gate in there, and finally defeat Liu Zhang.  Ends with a cut 
scene.

Battle of Fan Castle - This Battle can be Quite Difficult.  Begins with 
a cut scene. Start off by charging forward, and taking out the defense 
base, continue heading forward and take out the supply base, defeating 
the gate captain and Sun Li on the way. Now, head forward more, and 
kill Jiang Ji, and the gate ahead even more, there is another one just 
below Jiang Ji's position, so destroy that too.  Head north, and 
destroy the two supply bases that are in succession, and head left, 
destroying that final one.  If the last two defense bases are still 
standing, take them out as well. Now, go kill Yu Jin and finally, Pang 
De (and with his death, you may now enter Fan Castle). Xu Huang will 
eventually show up, so slay him as well. Lu Meng (along with Xu Sheng) 
will show up when you meet up with Cao Ren, so now Kill Cao Ren (sub-
generals: Yue Jin and Niu Jin).  If you wish, you may ignore Cao Ren, 
so that you may head for Lu Meng (Sub-generals: Lu 
Xun and Jiang Qin).
