    III. About Dong Zhuo
    A. In History
    Dong Zhuo's style name is Zhongying. Kongming's Archives provides the following
    information about him:
    "Dong Zhuo, styled Zhongyin, was born in Lintao in the West Valley Land but it
    was while he was Governor of Hedong on the Northwestern Frontier that he gained
    notoriety for his arrogant and ignorant ways. During the Yellow Turban
    Rebellion, Dong Zhuo fought against the rebels in Zhuo county and throughout
    the Northwest but Zhang Jiao’s forces proved too much, sending Dong Zhuo into
    retreat. Dong Zhuo’s retreat was aided by Liu Bei and his sworn brothers, but
    as they held no government offices Dong Zhuo treated them with disrespect,
    greatly angering Zhang Fei who wanted to kill Dong Zhuo for this treatment.
    After the end of the uprising Dong Zhuo bribed his way out of his punishment
    for his failures against the Yellow Turbans and gained rapid promotions through
    deceit, he held the titles of General, General of the Front Army and Lord of
    Aoxiang all within a short time before becoming Imperial Protector in the
    western region of Xizhou. Dong Zhou now commanded an army of 200,000 troops.
    Dong Zhou was summoned to the capital by He Jin so he left his son in law Niu
    Fu in charge and took his army with generals Li Jue, Guo Si, Zhang Ji, and Fan
    Chou to the capital Luoyang. While He Jin was pleased that Dong Zhuo was coming
    to the capital, many ministers resigned in protest. The eunuchs, fearing that
    Dong Zhuo’s forces had come to destroy them, convinced Empress He that He Jin
    was plotting against the state and had him killed. He Jin’s death set Cao Cao
    and Yuan Shao’s forces against the eunuchs, leading to an internal revolution.
    During the confusion the Emperor and his brother were hurried away by the
    eunuchs but they soon managed to escape and were saved by Min Gong. Soon after
    recovering the emperor, Min Gong’s troop met Dong Zhuo’s and the two armies
    turned towards the capital. Once order had been restored, it was found that the
    Imperial Seal of the Emperor was missing. Dong Zhuo’s forces camped outside the
    city’s walls but he came and went as he pleased, walking the streets of the
    city accompanied by armed guards which angered some but the majority feared
    Dong Zhuo.
    Dong Zhuo would call a meeting with the government’s officials and during the
    feast announced his wish to remove the emperor from power, empowering the
    emperor’s brother the Prince of Chenliu instead but ministers Ding Yuan and Lu
    Zhi voiced their displeasure, enraging Dong Zhuo. Li Ru succeeded in calming
    the situation and the assembled ministers took their leave. The next day Ding
    Yuan, accompanied by his officer Lu Bu, led out a force against Dong Zhuo but
    before the forces could finish exchanging taunts Lu Bu attacked Dong Zhuo
    causing him and his army to retreat. Dong Zhuo’s army would set up a new camp
    and a meeting of all of the officers was called where Dong Zhuo decided that Lu
    Bu needed to be convinced to join him. Li Su met with Lu Bu, bribing him with
    gold and the horse Red Hare. Lu Bu agreed that he would slay Ding Yuan and join
    Dong Zhuo which he did the very next day. Dong Zhuo welcomed his adopted son Lu
    Bu with more gifts and with Lu Bu at his side, Dong Zhuo’s influence and power
    grew. He soon named himself Minister of Works, Grand Commander, and Commander
    of the Front Army and gave Lu Bu the titles of Lord of Luoyang, Commander of
    the Capital District, and Cavalry Commander.
    Dong Zhuo called for another banquet and once again voiced his plan to replace
    the emperor. This time only Yuan Shao spoke out as all the other attendees were
    too afraid to oppose the plan. Again, it was Li Ru who intervened to prevent
    bloodshed but once Yuan Shao had left the banquet, his uncle Yuan Wei agreed
    with Dong Zhuo’s plan and the gathered officials also agreed as they were
    afraid to disagree. The next day, by Li Ru’s suggestion, Dong Zhuo offered Yuan
    Shao the governorship of Bohai as a peace offering.
    On the first day of the ninth month AD 190, an assembly of officials was held,
    and with the Emperor in attendance Dong Zhuo ordered the Emperor to be removed
    from the throne. The former Emperor and Empress were removed and imprisoned
    within a part of the palace. Liu Xian, Prince of Chenliu was now Emperor.
    Naming himself Prime Minister, Dong Zhuo became more arrogant and ignorant of
    rules than before and became very wealthy during this time, more wealthy than
    any other in the land. Li Ru advised Dong Zhuo to make gestures that would
    bring public support, so he proceeded to restore those to office who had been
    removed by the eunuchs and gave titles to the families of those who had been
    killed by the eunuchs. However, Dong Zhuo soon decided to rid himself of the
    former Emperor and Empress so he sent Li Ru with 10 men to kill them and
    ordered their bodies to be buried outside the city’s walls. With the former
    Emperor and Empress gone, Dong Zhuo became even more rebellious as he slept on
    the Emperor’s Dragon Couch and took the Imperial Concubines as his own. He even
    led his army to Yangcheng and attacked during the Spring festival, killing the
    men, capturing the women and stealing all possessions worth taking.
    Word of Dong Zhuo’s abuse of power made it to Yuan Shao who wrote a letter to
    Minister of the Interior Wang Yun offering to lead his army against Dong Zhuo
    if Wang Yun would rebel. Under the pretense of a birthday party, Wang Yun
    invited his closet colleagues to his home to discuss the matter and addressed
    them with a moving speech. While most of the guests wept, one laughed: Cao Cao.
    He ridiculed the crying men calling for action over tears and swore to kill
    Dong Zhuo. The next day Cao Cao met alone with Dong zhuo but when he went to
    cut him down, Dong Zhuo saw Cao Cao’s reflection in a mirror and turned to
    confront him. Lu Bu arrived at that moment so Cao Cao dropped to one knee to
    present the sword as a gift to Dong Zhuo. Cao Cao took his leave after Dong
    Zhuo accepted the gift but his intentions were known to both Lu Bu and Dong
    Zhuo. Li Ru discovered that Cao Cao had fled the city and offered a reward for
    his capture but Cao Cao escaped home to Qiao where he issued a call to arms
    against Dong Zhuo. Yuan Shao received the call to arms and marched his army of
    30,000 to Qiao to join with Cao Cao and he was not the only one: Han Fu, Liu
    Dai, Kong Zhou, Wang Kuang, Zhang Miao, Tao Qian, Ma Teng, Zhang Chao, Kong
    Rong, Zhang Yang, Qiao Mao, Yuan Yi, Bao Xin, Gongsun Zan, Sun Jian and Yuan
    Shao’s brother Yuan Shu all began the march to the Capital Luoyang. On his way
    to the capital, Gongsun Zan’s force was joined by Liu Bei, Zhang Fei, Guan Yu
    and their small force.
    Once the armies had assembled, Yuan Shao was nominated to lead the alliance and
    he placed Yuan Shu in charge of supplies and made Sun Jian leader of the Van.
    Word reached Dong Zhuo of this invading force when Sun Jian’s army reached
    River Si Pass, so he dispatched Hua Xiong with Li Su, Hu Zhen, Zao Cen and an
    army of 50,000 to repel the alliance. Soon after setting out Hua Xiong had
    slain Bao Xin’s brother and captured 3,000 enemy troops so he was made
    Commander-In-Chief by Dong Zhuo in recognition of his service. Although Hu Zen
    would be killed by Sun Jian’s officer Cheng Pu, Hua Xiong’s forces would repel
    Sun Jian’s army and kill his officer Zu Mao. Hua Xiong would also slay one of
    Yuan Shao’s officers, Yu She and Han Fu’s officer Pan Feng but would be killed
    himself during a duel with Guan Yu.
    When news of Hua Xiong’s death reached Dong Zhou he was greatly concerned and
    at once dispatched Li Jue and Guo Si to kill Yuan Shao’s uncle Yuan Wei who
    held office within the palace. He then ordered an army of 50,000 to be raised
    and sent to River Si Pass under the command of Li Jue and Guo Si. Another army
    of 150,000 troops was raised and led to Hu Lao Pass by Dong Zhuo himself
    accompanied by Lu Bu, Li Ru, Zhang Ji and Fan Chou. Once they arrived, Lu Bu
    was sent outside the pass with an army of 30,000 men. Yuan Shao sent Cao Cao,
    Gongsun Zan, Wang Kuang, Qiao Mao, Bao Xin, Yuan Yi, Zhang Yang, Tao Qian and
    Kong Rong against Dong Zhuo at Hu Lao Pass of which Wang Kuang’s forces were
    first to arrive. Lu Bu slayed Wang Kuang’s officer Fang Yue quickly and charged
    at the army killing many soldiers and forcing Wang Kuang to flee. Qiao Mao and
    Yuan Yi rescued Wang Kuang but lost many men in the process so they too
    retreated and met up with the other arriving commanders, but Lu Bu would also
    kill Zhang Yang’s general Mu Shun and wound Wu Anguo under Kong Rong before
    retiring. Lu Bu would once again attack the next day and this time was about to
    kill Gongsun Zan when Zhang Fei came to his rescue. Zhang Fei and Lu Bu battled
    with neither gaining an advantage so Guan Yu joined the battle but again, no
    advantage could be gained by either side even when Liu Bei joined the attack.
    Eventually Lu Bu would start to tire so he withdrew from the battle to his own
    Dong Zhuo tried to form an alliance with Sun Jian by offering his daughter to
    be married to Sun Ce, but this only angered Sun Jian. Li Ru proposed to Dong
    Zhuo that the capital city should be moved from Luoyang to Changan in order to
    boost the moral of the troops, so Dong Zhuo and Lu Bu left the front lines and
    returned to Luoyang to make the announcement. A few of the ministers were
    concerned as Changan was a wasteland, but Dong Zhuo was adamant that the city
    could be rebuilt and would make a superior capital as it would be easier to
    defend due to it’s mountainous surroundings. 5 officials in all objected, 3
    were reduced to peasants and 2 were executed by Dong Zhuo’s command. Dong Zhuo
    then sent 5,000 troops out to plunder and kill the rich of Luoyang under the
    pretense that the rich were supporting the alliance against, while Li Jue and
    Guo Si were tasked with driving the millions of inhabitants of Luoyang to the
    new capital. Many of the people died along the way and their bodies were
    looted. Dong Zhuo dispatched Lu Bu to rob the tombs of the Emperors and the
    rich of Luoyang and then the city was burned to the ground. As they made their
    way to Changan, Li Ru advised Dong Zhuo to assign Lu Bu to guard the rear as he
    feared that the alliance may pursue them and his fears were justified as soon
    Cao Cao’s army caught up with them, but they were easily defeated by Lu Bu, Li
    Ru and Guo Si and forced to retreat to Luoyang. The alliance against Dong Zhou
    crumbled as Sun Jian, Cao Cao and Gongsun Zan's armies all retired to their own
    provinces, Sun Jian taking with him the newly found Imperial Seal.
    Dong Zhuo concentrated on building the new capital in Changan while his enemies
    fought amongst themselves: Gongsun Zan and Yuan Shao waged war against each
    other, Yuan Shao and Yuan Shu were almost enemies and Sun Jian was killed by
    Liu Biao leaving the 17 year old Sun Ce as his successor. With seemingly no one
    to oppose him Dong Zhuo did as he pleased, titling himself Imperial Rector, his
    brother Dong Min became Lord of Huazhou and Commander of the Left Army and
    every member of Dong Zhuo’s family was given a title. He soon built a city
    named Miewo and filled it with his wealth, his family and the most beautiful
    women he could find. He would visit the city once a month and his behavior
    became more and more vicious as he regularly had executions carried out during
    After one such banquet Wang Yun, who had previously plotted against Dong Zhuo,
    formed a plan with his loyal handmaiden Diao Chan that would see Lu Bu kill
    Dong Zhuo. He would offer Diao Chan to be married to Lu Bu but then would also
    offer her to Dong Zhuo in order to drive a wedge between the Imperial Rector
    and his adopted son. Wang Yun invited Lu Bu to his home to meet Diao Chan and
    promised her to him, but the next day met with Dong Zhuo and gave Diao Chan to
    him. Wang Yun told Lu Bu that Dong Zhuo was fully aware that Diao Chan was
    promised to Lu Bu but had taken her anyway. Over the next few months Diao Chan
    would be the cause of many problems between the two as she played them against
    each other. The rivalry between them would come to a head when Dong Zhuo caught
    Lu Bu with Diao Chan and tried to kill Lu Bu with his own halberd. Following
    this incident, Dong Zhuo and Diao Chan set out to Miewo to be far away from Lu
    Lu Bu would plot with Wang Yun to assassinate Dong Zhuo. Wang Yun with two of
    his colleagues decided that a messenger would be sent to Dong Zhou with a
    summons from the Emperor and when he returned to the capital he would be
    ambushed and killed by Lu Bu. The next day Li Su was sent as the messenger to
    Miewo where he informed Dong Zhuo that the Emperor wished to abdicate all power
    to him. Dong Zhuo gave the good news to his elderly mother and then left Zhang
    Ji, Guo Si, Fan Chou and Li Jue with 3,000 troops to guard the city while he
    returned to the capital. As he arrived at Changan, Dong Zhuo was welcomed by
    many ministers and when he reached his palace he was greeted and congratulated
    by Lu Bu. The next day as he arrived at the reception hall, Dong Zhuo was
    greatly alarmed to see that the gathered ministers were all armed but before he
    could retreat, soldiers who had lain in ambush attacked his carriage. Dong Zhuo
    called for Lu Bu to save him but Lu Bu thrust his halberd through Dong Zhuo’s
    throat. Dong Zhuo’s corpse was decapitated by Li Su and the troops brought Li
    Ru to execution. A force of 50,000 men led by Lu Bu then marched to Meiwo to
    destroy the city. The four generals protecting the city fled and the force led
    by Lu Bu invaded, killing all of Dong Zhuo’s family even his mother. The women
    were set free, the riches were confiscated and Lu Bu was reunited with Diao
    Chan. Dong Zhuo’s two year reign of terror had ended.
    Almost 3 years after Dong Zhuo’s death, his followers who still lived in
    Changan conspired with Guo Si, Fan Chou, Zhang Ji and Li Jue to attack the
    capital to avenge Dong Zhuo. During this uprising Li Su and Wang Yun would both
    die and chaos would once again come to Changan."
    B. In Warriors Orochi
    Dong Zhuo plays a major role in the game. He is one of Orochi's most loyal and
    persistent henchmen, and appears several times throughout all of the storylines
    to menace the Resistance and enforce his master's will. Orochi maintains his
    loyalty by showering him with gold and allowing him to indulge his cruel and
    decadent desires. In most storylines, he serves Orochi faithfully until the
    end, though the Samurai Warriors storyline reveals that he is willing to change
    allegiances if he believes that doing so will bring him even greater rewards.
    IV. Unlocking Dong Zhuo
    In SW Chapter 4-X - Battle of Si Shui Gate, you must defeat the three Supply
    Captains before they reach Dong Zhuo. They appear at the following locations
    and times:
    1. By the central northern base, 1:00 into the battle.
    2. By the central western base, ~3:30 into the battle.
    3. By the central northern base, ~6:45 into the battle. Lu Bu also appears to
    guard this team. If you aren't prepared to deal with him, defeat the Supply
    Captain and run like the wind.
    Fulfill these conditions, and Dong Zhuo will become available for use once you
    finish the battle.
    V. Using Dong Zhuo

    C2 / ST     | Dong Zhuo does a leaping slash that launches the enemy into the
                | air.
    C3 / SST    | Dong Zhuo does a quick left-to-right upward slash and a quick
                | right-to-left slash, finishing up with two overhead slices. The
                | last hit stuns the enemy.
    C3 / SSTT   | Dong Zhuo does a quick series of four alternating left-to-right
                | upward and right-to-left slashes, finishing up with two overhead
                | slices. The last hit stuns the enemy.
    C3 / SSTTT  | Dong Zhuo does a quick series of six alternating left-to-right
                | upward and right-to-left slashes, finishing up with two overhead

    4. Mounted Attacks
    SSSS(SS) | A series of alternating right and left slashes.

               | last of which launches the enemy into the air. Ends with a back
               | flop, which produces a shockwave that sends all surrounding
               | enemies flying.
    True musou | Similar to regular musou, but replaces the back flop with a bomb
               | toss. The bomb launches all enemies in its blast radius into the
               | air, and Dong Zhuo rolls backwards after throwing it.
    B. Maximizing Dong Zhuo's Effectiveness
    Dong Zhuo's long been one of the underdogs of the Dynasty Warriors series, and
    there are good reasons for that. He's a slow runner, he jumps like a crippled
    elephant, he's highly vulnerable to archers and musketeers, and the last hits
    of his regular combo, C3, and C4 all hit in narrow areas. He was a real jerk in
    Romance of the Three Kingdoms, too.
    Personality deficits aside, Dong Zhuo can be highly effective in the right
    hands. He's a Power type character with great attack and respectable defense,
    so don't be afraid to wade into the thick of the action. C3 makes an excellent
    staple move due to its speed, coverage, and ability to stun enemies, especially
    if you're good at aiming the overhead slices. Use it religiously at all levels.
    SSSS is good for clearing crowds at lower levels and gets better as you level
    up, making it another great combo to use frequently. C1 and your air charge are
    good escape moves; use them when you need a moment to fall back and catch your
    breath. C4 is great for separating enemy generals from peon hordes, and is best
    followed up by a charge rush and a special. C5 is slightly more useful than C2,
    but its small area of effect makes it ill-suited for anything other than jug-
    gling enemy generals into oblivion. C6 works well against small or medium-sized
    groups of enemies, but generals will usually block it unless they're stunned or
    airborne. All said, your best bet is to use your regular combo, C3, and C6 to
    deal with crowds and C3 and your special to quickly defeat generals. Use your
    musou only in emergencies, but be careful when using your true musou. If you're
    critically low on life when you perform it, be ready to change characters as
    soon as you come out of the roll.
    I recommend adding the following special effects to Dong Zhuo's weapon:
    Absorb - Stealing musou means you get to use your throw more often. Woo-hoo!
    Bolt - Greatly improves your crowd control ability and damage output. You can
    grab and throw enemies as they fall over, so you'll still be able to abuse your
    throw. It makes your C4 far less useful, but your C3 will make up for that.
    Brave - Doing more damage to generals is good for anyone.
    Flash - Unblockable charge attacks. Need I say more?
    Might - Doing more damage to everyone is good for anyone.
    Rage - Makes your charge rush and throw even more fearsome. If your enemies
    pummel you to the brink of death, you'll make them wish they'd finished the
    Range - Allows you to hit more enemies in a crowd and increases the margin of
    error on your swings.
    Slay - Invaluable against juggernauts like Lu Bu and Orochi. Once you see what
    it can do, you'll understand.

    Requirements: Defeat, in order, Sakon Shima, Xiao Qiao, and Okuni within 5:00
    of the start of the battle, and defeat 300 enemies.
    Location: On the trail southeast of Sakon Shima's garrison.
    2. My Method
    As soon as the battle began, I charged west and took down Deng Mao to open the
    gate to the stronghold. I raced west and north along the path to the northwest
    garrison, ignoring all enemies and running past the inactive geyser. I cut down
    Bo Zhang in front of the garrison, then rushed inside and made quick work of
    Sakon Shima and Gao Sheng. I hurried south to punish Xiao Qiao, then followed
    the path east and north to reach Okuni and beat her into submission. Katsumoto
    Katagiri was within striking distance, so I struck him down and made my way
    south for Kuai Liang. I cut my way west through Yu Ji and a horde of peons to
    get 300 KOs and the item. The geyser was active now, so I took the scenic route
    to Zhang Jiao and stopped to help my allies deal with Pei Yuan Shao, Junkei
    Tsutsui, Zhang Man Cheng, and Sun Li. I looped around to the south and west,
    dispatched Zhang Bao to stop the whirlwinds, and defeated Zhang Jiao to finish
    the battle. With a Lv. 42 Dong Zhuo, a Lv. 6 Hideyoshi Toyotomi, and a Lv. 50
    Guan Ping, I was able to obtain the item and complete the battle in 13:06.
    3. Pointers
    Speed and a good battle plan are crucial to obtaining this item. Even at higher
    levels, Dong's far too slow to make it to the garrisons in time to defeat
    Sakon, Xiao Qiao, and Okuni, so bring a faster teammate and equip Impulse or
    Cavalier to ensure that you'll be able to reach your destination with time to
    spare. Don't stop to fight generals or capture bases during your blitz; you'll
    need as many enemies as possible on the battlefield to get your 300 KOs. If
    you're on a horse, jump to avoid the archers and musketeers. I highly recommend
    saving before charging through a large group of enemies on horseback; one well-
    timed swing can dismount you and force you to waste precious seconds climbing
    back on your horse and fleeing from the mob. Finally, it's imperative that you
    head east and then north when you're ready to fight Okuni. If you try to reach
    her by heading north and then east, the chasm will stop you in your tracks. As
    long as you're strong enough to make quick work of the enemy generals, you
    shouldn't have any other problems.
    Like all Personal Items, the Goblet of Paradise can be obtained in Story Mode
    or Free Mode on any difficulty setting.
    VII. Questions & Answers
    Q: Why a Dong Zhuo FAQ?
    A: It hadn't been done yet, and it's become a tradition for me.
    Q: Dong Zhuo's fat, stupid, and worthless.
    A: That's not a question, though I can't really argue with the "fat" part. He's
    certainly not worthless, but he does take some practice to use well.
    Q: Didn't you write Dong Zhuo FAQs for Dynasty Warriors 3-5?
    A: Yep.
    Q: Why do you keep writing Dong Zhuo FAQs?
    A: Supply and demand. I supply them for the few who demand them...and, as I
    mentioned above, it's become a tradition for me.
    Q: Why are you so interested in Dong Zhuo? Does it have anything to do with a
    deep-rooted desire that involves fat, evil, lecherous men?
    A: Regardless of what Sigmund Freud might say, the answer is no.
    Q: Why can't I get a 4th weapon for Dong Zhuo?
    A: Because you're a pansy.
    Q: Seriously, what do I need to do to get one?
    A: Play any battle on Chaos mode, or any battle with a difficulty rating of
    three stars or more on Hard mode. They'll randomly appear in weapon boxes.
    Q: I fulfilled the requirements to obtain the Goblet of Paradise, but I didn't
    get it! What gives?
    A: Make sure that Dong Zhuo personally gets 300 KOs and defeats Sakon Shima,
    Xiao Qiao, and Okuni in order and within the time limit.
    Q: Your FAQ sucks! I've crapped out better FAQs than this!
    A: As soon as you find a way to upload excrement, you should post your wondrous
    creation for all to see.
    Q: I posted my FAQ, and everyone I know thinks it's better than yours! Your FAQ
    really DOES suck!
