How Lu Bu joined the Tourney
Lu Bu is a warrior who wants to prove his strength to all. First serving his adopted father, Dong Zhuo, he defies the Allied Forces at Hu Lao and Si Shui Gates. Known for his ferocity in the former battle, Yuan Shao warns his officers to steer clear of him in every game. In most titles, he has a special duel with Liu Bei and his brothers during the conflict. Not one to trust Dong Zhuo, he often gives into Diao Chan's deception and rebels against his former master in their story modes. In other characters' scenarios, he wanders the land after his benefactor's death and steals Xia Pi away from Liu Bei. Facing Cao Cao and Liu Bei's armies at the castle, Lu Bu dies after his defeat.
Classic Mode Opening Movie
Two fighters in a ring prepared to fight, but as the start bell rang, Lu Bu entered the ring with his halberd and said, "I am Lu Bu! Come and get some!" The referee tried to make the mighty warrior leave as he said "Try to take me on, both of you!" then brushed the referee aside. Ryu was watching silently. The fighters in the ring tried to attack Lu Bu, only to be defeated by his halberd. As he gave a fighting pose, Lu Bu said "Power and glory, can only be attained through victory in battle!" while Ryu shrugged and walked off over his future rival's laughs.
