His fighting style is based upon crowd clearing. His C4, C5, and C6 clear almost everyone around or in front of him coupled with an Ice orb creates a very easy string of killing. His C4 especially helps because it has little execution time and little ending lag, and it is a very early charge attack which can be used at any point in the game. He can also use the unbelievable speed of his C1 to escape from difficult situations. His Musou, however, has very little range, so he cannot necessarily target 2 or more officers at the same time, and he must take them out one by one.
As with all Dynasty Warriors characters, he retains his moveset in Dynasty Warriors 5. His offense is somewhat crippled as the only elemental attacks he has are his C1, C2, and C3. His C1 is his main offense, as it can be easily followed up with another C1. Two C1s are usually all that is needed for a generic officer to be defeated. Two C2s can be used if landing a C1 proves to be too difficult.
In Warriors Orochi 2, neither his C1 or C2 are elemental. Instead, his C4 is elemental, but it is quite weak. As usual, adding the Almighty enchantment can solve this problem, and his R1 attacks are also affected, since they don't use Musou. Adding Agility in conjunction with Almighty, however, can make attacking extremely difficult to the point of mashing buttons. It is advised to omit Agility since he attacks fast enough already.
Dynasty Warriors 6Edit
In the original release, he shared his moveset with Lu Meng, Guan Ping, Xu Huang and Cao Ren. See Polearm Moveset for more details.

Ends with eight fancy looking swings of his weapon forward.
- string (Renbu ∞): somersault kicks a foe into the air. He hits his foe once while floating in the air. He continues to twist his weapon in nunchaku-like motions, hitting his foe several times in the air. While still aerial, he performs a mighty smack to smash them back to the ground.
- (held): A series of wide swings that hit all directions around him.

In Dynasty Warriors 6: Special, he receives a unique moveset, which consists of a three-sectioned staff. Like in the fifth installment, he tends to have little range and reach (except his Musou ending, which has crowd clearing potential), so players must get in close to deal damage. For this reason, it is recommended to have a standard weapon as the weapon's reach increases as the Renbu level increases.
