Fighting Style Edit
Huang Zhong's C1, C2, C4, jump attack and Musou Attack initial motions are shared with Xiahou Yuan.
Dynasty Warriors 3Edit
Remains the same with the following additions/changes:
- , , , , : Upward hook with his sword; tapping adds a spinning knockdown slash. Unlike most C5 finishers, this can make the target crash into foes below like most C4 attacks.
- , , , , , : Throws two spinning slashes that knock back and sends out a horizontal cutting wave for each slash. Can juggle the foes the second wave with the first one with proper aiming.

Dynasty Warriors 4Edit
- R3: Releases wisps of light that stun enemies within range. Aura may change color in Free Mode to match the user's chosen side.
Removes power guards to replace with counterattacks. Huang Zhong now has a few bow attacks incorporated into his moveset.
- : Takes out his bow and fires five arrows straight ahead while holding his bow horizontally. Can lock onto the nearest targets. These arrows act as normal arrows, and thus can fly at maximum distance and cannot phase through any people on the field, even allies.
- , , , (), (), (): Takes out his bow and holds it in a diagonal fashion and fires a single arrow per that travel straight ahead at long distances. The last arrow stuns.
Huang Zhong's moveset utilizes his bow, though several of his blade-based moves have changed very little. His C1 string is great for eliminating troop units, and stalling enemy officers. In Dynasty Warriors 4, the arrows can lock on to the closest target(s) in the vicinity while knocking down foes into each other should Huang Zhong have a high bow attack stat. The C4 has a relatively short range compared to the arrow attacks due to its narrow range, rendering it a not very useful crowd clearer. However, with a powerful weapon, the C3 attack can inflict heavy damage, while also stunning enemies. Fortunately, this attack also uses arrows and can be upgraded with the Fire Arrows item.
Dynasty Warriors 5Edit
Remains the same with the following additions/changes:
- , (), (), (), (), (): Same as before, but instead the arrows can no longer fly as far with no knockdown, but can now pierce through units and can be fired in multiple volleys.
- , , , (), (), (): Same as before, but undergoes the same changes as his C1 per wave. The last wave fires arrows covered in yellow light that stun enemies but cannot phase through units.
- , , , , : Huang Zhong leans back and tumbles forward to slam his sword on the ground to create a ground flashing quake. Launches.
- , , , , , : Same as before but no longer adds effects to his attacks, making it a purely physical attack. First hit now juggles.
- , , , , , , , , : After the inward slash, Huang Zhong restarts his C4 chain.
- (True): Readies his bow and shoots a gun powder arrow to cause a spiral-launching explosion on the ground. The arrow undergoes the same effects as all his others in terms of being enhanced by Huang's Bow and Fire Arrows, but does not do any damage itself.
- , : A giant flip in the air with Huang Zhong shooting one wave of five arrows while upside down. The wave is aimed more closer to Huang Zhong's predetermined landing during the flip.
- Warriors Orochi
Gains a C4-EX-Special and an Extra Counter. Removes the bow moveset from previous games.
- , (), (), (), (), (): Same as before but the arrows fly in a fanning pattern instead. Uses up double the original musou amount when used as a Type Action/C1-EX in Warriors Orochi 2.
- , , , (), (), (): Same as before but arrows travel slightly further, and the final volley has a different aura on the arrows. The arrows also fly in a fanning pattern instead. Uses up double the original musou amount when used as a Type Action/C3-EX in Warriors Orochi 2.
- , : Same as before, only the angle at which the arrows are fired is aimed more at Huang Zhong's previous spot, and fired as a fanning pattern shot instead of a single straight wave. The arrows are now stunning aura arrows that no longer pierce through units.
- , , , R1: Hefts himself up in the air with his body spinning upside down. Shoots volleys of arrows below him as he spirals in the air, and the arrows are fired in a upside-down funnel shape right below him. Uses up double the original musou amount in Warriors Orochi 2.
- R1 (Counter): Fires a quick set of arrows non-piercing aura arrows in a fanning pattern that stun, and then performs an instant backwards moonsault to safety. Uses up double the original musou amount in Warriors Orochi 2.
- Warriors Orochi 2
- Triple Attack 1: Uses bow to shoot large gusts of air.
- Triple Attack 2: Slams the ground to produce a large column of wind.
- Triple Attack 3: Releases a fierce air gust by aiming bow at a slight angle.
In Dynasty Warriors 5, all arrows are shot in a straight line, and can pass through enemies, making it very useful. To make the attack stronger, players can equip the Fire Arrow item, which makes any arrow released have a fire element. With Huang Zhong's moveset, which heavily relies on bows and arrows, will destroy enemies easily. His jumping charge can be used for quick escapes, or getting behind a blocking officer. The accuracy works fairly well, as the arrows have a very steep attack path.
In Warriors Orochi Huang Zhong has two special R1 attacks - an Enhanced Strike which is his C1-EX and another which is used as his C4, his C4-EX-SP. This easily K.O's weaker enemies. He also heavily relies on his C2 in combination with the Air element and other offensive abilities to quickly kill officers and clear crowds. In comparison to his Dynasty Warriors counterpart, his range in Warriors Orochi is noticeably narrower, especially for the bow attacks. With the Weapon Fusion system in the game, most issues within Huang Zhong can be solved. Range extends the reach of weapon attacks.
In Warriors Orochi 2, Huang Zhong, has been buffed considerably. Although only two charge attacks activate element attacks, being his C4 and C5. However, with is newly buffed C1-EX, he can spam a powerful barrage of arrows to clear peons and officers alike with proper elemental attributes. However, as a trade-off all of his Type Action-based moves now use up more musou than in the previous installment, which is exactly double the original amount from the first game. Also, like all characters, his easy-to-abuse C2 with the proper elements is no longer an elemental activation attack, and his arrow-based moves by themselves without proper elements active are very weak.
Dynasty Warriors 6Edit
- Special Attack: Volley: releases waves of arrows surrounding the player to annihilate enemies. Huang Zhong's version does not come with an element upgrade, but it can deal more damage with other skills.
In Dynasty Warriors 6 a good majority of Huang Zhong's strong attacks are cutting waves and shockwaves of ice. Though he only can have up to two Tomes at a time, the add-ons to his Special Attack compensate for it. Abilities like Rapid Shot, Heavy Bolt, and Piercing grant Huang Zhong one of the deadliest Volley specials in the game. The attack can have quicker reloads, bigger range, and have arrows explode on impact with aforementioned abilities.

At the end, he does a scattering shot before releasing an arrow that emits a violent surge of energy. The extended version of the attack causes him to leap in the air and fire arrows to shake the ground several times before releasing sonic-powered shots in all directions.
