Zuo Ci

Zuo Ci is a playable character in Dynasty Warriors 5, he was introduced in this game as a new character, however, he does not return in Dynasty Warriors 6.

This makes him on par with Lu Bu's weapon, however, Lu Bu's moveset has a longer reach and is therfore deadlier. He appears little in any character's story save Cao Cao's, most likely due to his minute involvement in the story of any character besides him in the true story of "The Romance of The Three Kingdoms".
