Lü Bu (呂布)
Lü Bu is generally considered to be the most powerful character in the Dynasty Warriors games with the exception of Zuo Ci, both as an AI and playable character. He is also the only character to have his own theme song when encountered by the player. His high statistics make him dangerous for new players who play the early stages he appears in. He is depicted as an extremely aggressive and brutish warrior who fights for the sole purpose of finding an opponent worthy of challenge. He is eventually persuaded by Diao Chan to kill his lord and adoptive father, Dong Zhuo, which did happen in the novel. He later fights Cao Cao, and is shown to have a strong bond with his subordinate, Zhang Liao, who looks up to him. Lü Bu is eventually defeated and slain at Xia Pi by the allied forces of Cao Cao and Liu Bei, after many of Lü Bu's disillusioned officers defect to the enemy.
Lu Bu fights with a halberd called "Sky Scorcher". His halberd is significantly modified in Dynasty Warriors 6. The halberd now resembles a cross, with a sharp blade on each end, like four halberds joined together.
