Dynasty Warriors[edit | edit source]
In Dynasty Warriors 6, he helps Cao Ren defend Fan Castle from the likes of Guan Yu. He also appears in an exclusive cutscene during the battle of Hefei Castle, in which he says that the castle is unable to fall, meaning that he took part in planning the castle's defenses.

In Wei's hypothetical route, he participates in the campaign against Wu at Jianye and in the campaign against the alliance formed by Liu Bei and several other warlords that oppose Cao Cao.
Man Chong is recurring enemy officer for Shu's scenario campaigns in Dynasty Warriors: Unleashed. He will attempt to block Liu Bei's escape from Xuzhou with fire archers and aid Li Dian in covering for Cao Cao when things in Chibi go badly for the Wei forces.
Their success in the campaign is cut short when Lu Bu appears and stakes his claim over Yan Province. After defeating Lu Bu, Man Chong helps his lord secure the emperor. During which, he meets his old friend, Xu Huang, and implores him to switch sides. Once the emperor is taken to Xuchang, Cao Cao accepts the surrender of Zhang Xiu, but Man Chong suspects something ominous due to Wan Castle's intricate design. His anxieties are proven when Cao Ang and Cao Anmin's units request for reinforcements.
After securing the north, Man Chong participates in the campaigns against Sun Quan at Chibi and Ruxukou. After Hanzhong is lost, Man Chong is sent to aid Cao Ren, Pang De, and Yu Jin in organizing Fan Castle's defense. Their preparations are for naught as the flood attack leads to Yu Jin's surrender and Pang De's capture.
Making use of Wu's betrayal, Guan Yu is slain, and Cao Cao falls to natural causes shortly after. Serving Cao Pi, Man Chong aids the prince's ascent to the throne when he attempts to find the root cause of the false rumors in Xuchang.
After Han is replaced with Wei, the strategist accompanies his lord in his attempts to conquer both Wu and Shu. After Cao Xiu's defeat at Shiting, Man Chong and Sima Yi are sent to rescue the young general and to avenge his previous defeat. While they are victorious, Cao Pi dies to illness before they can celebrate.
After Cao Pi's death, Man Chong is sent to Hefei to prepare a new castle to fight Wu. Together with reinforcements from Zhuge Dan and Xin Xianying, Man Chong is able to defeat Sun Quan's massive army at Hefei Castle.
He later invites Sima Yi and various officers to tour a new trap of the castle, Man Chong intentionally traps all of them in a room. Playfully, he asks Sima Yi to find whatever holes he can find in the design.
He and the other Wei strategists later pull together and successfully defeat Liu Bei and unite the land with Guo Jia before his illness can claim him. He and the others later hold a banquet in their friend's name before he quietly passes away without their knowledge.

Character Information[edit | edit source]
Development[edit | edit source]
His Blast design is meant to embody someone who is always absorbed in his strategies and pays little attention to his appearance. Suzuki admits his main series Dynasty Warriors design was based on his Blast design. His rich-looking attire is a homage to his family upbringing, but his untied top is meant to reflect his indifference to anything outside of work. Man Chong was adapted to be the tallest of the strategists in the series due to his historical height.
Personality[edit | edit source]
Man Chong in his playable portrayal, is often shown to be a bit of an in-doors worker who prefers intricacies and has a notable fascination for traps of all kinds. However, he shows indifference to things outside of his work, most notably even in his attire (as both his battle outfit and civilian clothing are poorly done).
