Day 7: Favorite game couple  
I had to split this into two categories. All the Dynasty Warriors fans will understand why.

Canon



Meng Huo and Zhu Rong share a lot of ribbing with a genuine mutual respect underneath, and they seem like they can always make each other smile. She busts his balls on a regular basis, but it's all in good fun.

Non-canon



KOEI fails at buttsex meaningful interaction for characters who could have nifty friendships if the writers could be arsed to develop them. Not a problem - that's what fans are for.

Cao Ren and Lu Meng are gruff, pragmatic, and down to earth, with a sensitivity under their battlefield toughness, a reputation for disciplining themselves out of unruly youth, and a strong focus on earning their subordinates' respect. Historically, they were among the best commanders of their kingdoms. I imagine them both on the same fundamental wavelength of confidence, perspective, and compassion. Ren and Meng would make fine friends, and possibly more than that if the idea appealed to them. And to you, dear reader.

Scruffles!

Curiously enough, I also have both a canon and non-canon answer to this one. But I'm still a few days behind you.

I'm glad you mentioned that you're doing the meme - I somehow missed your FIRST POST!!111! on my friends page. (I do see the favorite character one, though.) I'm looking forward to the rest of your answers, especially because we're from a similar generation. Without spoiling, I'm going to say that I have an 8-bit answer for saddest scene.

I didn't care much about Lu Meng until I saw his DW6 makeover and wondered when Scruffles got hot. Then I saw his awesome grumpy teacher cut scenes, and then I did some history research, and we all know what happened from there. I've since developed an appreciation for Meng's older incarnations as well, but it was Hobo Aragorn that did me in. Personality-wise, I figure that DW5!Meng represents his earlier career, and DW6 is supposed to portray him at a later and wiser point. (Then again, Gan Ning does call him "old man" in one of the Orochi games - I think.) Both of those interpretations fit well enough with his historical record that I just squish them into my general concept of his character.

yeah but hwo could you fail to love Magoichi and. . . .every other woman in the game. I mean seriously, was there anyone with two x chromosomes he didn't hit on?

I don't remember him ever hitting on Ginchiyo Tachibana.

Come to think of it, that would be hilarious.
