From Koei Tecmo Wiki

Wu (呉), also known as Sun Wu (孫呉) or Eastern Wu (東呉), is one of the three influential kingdoms in Dynasty Warriors, Romance of the Three Kingdoms, Dynasty Tactics, and Kessen II. In Dynasty Warriors and their other appearances, the country is symbolized by the color red as well as a tiger (especially with the Sun family's motif). In Kessen II and early Romance of the Three Kingdoms titles, they are symbolized by the color blue.

Also in Dynasty Warriors, the kingdom was notable for amount of having the most amount of playable characters out of any faction as of the third installment; a tradition that was subverted as of the seventh installment and instead, is now upheld by Shu.

The kingdom's territory was originally ruled by different governors in the southeast. They were conquered by the smaller Sun family. Thanks to the influence of the Four Families of Wu, the Sun family was able to establish their rule through long lines of the initial power that consisted of family service and veteran talent. Much of the kingdom's homeland was stationed in Jiangdong (江東, Kōtō, lit. Creek East), with their primary capital being Jianye.

However, in the later years near the supposed climax of the Three Kingdoms period around the year of 260, Sun Quan was known for continuously making unreasonable decisions out of supposed insanity (which may have been thought to be sorrow from many of his family members both young and old that have died on him throughout) which involved failing to heed the advice of his trusted advisors (especially one such as Lu Xun, who tried many times to sway his opinion for the better of their kingdom). This in turn lead to the rising tyranny of Sun Hao's rule, and the misdeeds several other figures such as Sun Luban and Sun Chen that piled up from the shadows. It eventually built up to many other figures being slandered to death, which caused the kingdom to descend into lasting internal chaos from which it never fully recovered from.


  1. Sun Jian (posthumously)
  2. Sun Ce (posthumously)
  3. Sun Quan (222 ~ 252 AD)
  4. Sun Liang (252 ~ 258 AD) - Sun Quan's youngest son

Other Figures

  • Sun Qiang - Sun Jian's older brother, style name was Shengtai. All that is clearly known is that he lost his wife while he was still young and that his descendants went into royalty.
  • Sun Jing - Sun Jian's younger brother who helped his brother's campaigns.
  • Sun Yi - Sun Jian's third son.
  • Sun Kuang - Sun Jian's fourth son, style name was Jizuo. To quell the discontentments between Sun Quan and Cao Cao's forces following Sun Ce's passing, he married Cao Cao's niece. He had no other listed accomplishments, but his descendants were able to prosper. According to the Jiangbiao Zhuan, he made a grave error in the Battle of Dongkou. As punishment, he was deprived of the Sun name and sent to prison, which doubled as the spot where he died.
  • Sun Lang - Sun Jian's illegitimate son, mother unknown. Also known as Sun Ren, which became the given name for Lady Sun in Romance of the Three Kingdoms. When Cao Xiu advanced with troops into Dongkou, he and Lu Fan were able to drive back their invasion. At the same time, however, Sun Lang had accidentally set fire to ally war supplies. Sun Quan was greatly angered by the fault, banished him from royalty, and had him imprisoned. It is said that Sun Lang died while still in jail.
  • Sun Shao - Sun Ce's eldest son.
  • Sun Deng - Sun Quan's eldest son, crowned prince, style name was Zigao. Since his mother came from a poor background, he disciplined himself to be a wise and virtuous individual. When presented with the opportunity to rule, he was aware of his poor status and used illness as an excuse to avoid future disputes. He became archery and study friends with great individuals, such as Zhuge Ke and Zhang Xiu. He helped nurse his father's spirit after Sun Lu's death. As thanks, Sun Quan began to revere Sun Deng's neglected mother. He eventually succumbed to illness at age 33, but not before he informed Sun He that he dearly loved his brothers and father.
  • Sun Lu - Sun Quan's second son, married Pan Jun's daughter, style name was Zizhi. Intelligent and bright, he was adored by his father. Sun Quan was advised by Gu Yong to make him ruler, but Sun Quan couldn't bring himself to give Sun Lu such a heavy responsibility and made him perform border patrols instead. Because he was young, he was feared by the people at first. However, Sun Lu ruled his area justly and it thrived in prosperity.

To counter his brother's aggressions and false claims, Sun He gathered a great deal of supporters to oppose his brother. Although he and his supporters apologized for the dispute, Sun Quan didn't accept their words. His father finally decided to end the conflict by separating them, demoting Sun He to a commoner's status to the indignity of his vassals. He was later driven to commit suicide by Sun Jun.
  • Sun Ba - Sun Quan's fourth son, crowned prince, style name was Ziwei. Had to ask twice for his crown, refused the first time by his father. He was favored in a manner that was similar to the other princes, which he and other generals resented. To counter Sun He's presence, he rallied a great deal of followers and caused a split between the followers of the realm. After eight years of wrongful executions and accusations, Sun Quan decided to end the conflict by separating the brothers. He ordered Sun Ba to commit suicide.
  • Sun Fen - Sun Quan's fifth son, style name was Ziyang. Mentored by Lu Dai, but was said to not have the most ideal behavior.

Refused but quickly agreed after the advisor sent him a threatening letter that reprimanded his past behavior. Was rumored to have been involved with Zhuge Ke's death.
