Producing a Tam Quoc game, whether it’s role-playing or tactical, the first difficulty is not necessarily proper gameplay design, but in the character creation stage. How to make each general appear both “like” as what the reader once imagined, while exuding its own characteristics of each product, avoiding “confrontation” with many other competitors? As Lu Bo for example, no matter how “breaking the way”, the tree Phuong Thien Hoa Ho or the horse Xich Tho is also considered a “indomitable object”, wherever you go, you must follow it.
Sima Yi in the game always goes “purple”, seems a bit … feminine?
So have you ever wondered, why a Sima Yi “swallowed” the whole world, surpassed Cao Cao, Liu Be or Sun Quyen, and every appearance in the game is always associated with … purple, making it more “3D”?
Purple is the color of the regal
If you do not know it, according to ancient conception, purple is the color that only the royals can use. Persian Cyrus used a purple tunic as his royal, and some Roman emperors prohibited civilians from dressing in purple, and would be executed in violation. Purple was especially revered during the Byzantine Empire. Byzantine emperors wore long purple robes, signed decrees in purple ink, and their descendants were often referred to as “born in purple”.
Purple color in the past is often associated with “regal”
Sima Yi was patient and waited for the time to successfully take over the central government of the Wei Dynasty, creating a premise for his descendants to later establish the Jin Dynasty, unify China, and end the Three Kingdoms period. Later he was named Tuyen Hoang De, also known as Tan Cao To. So, the two words “regal” are well-deserved for this character.

There are also a number of jokes that, “the color of pure purple, hating lies” is aimed at “cunning” the cunning, cruel and arrogant of Sima Yi. However, many people are more satisfied with the original explanation because in what aspect, Sima Yi’s patience and foresight is still worthy of admiration, rather than sarcasm.
Take the example of 3Q Ba Vuong Just released recently, although there are 2 designs for each character, but for Sima Yi, both transformations have the main purple color. This is a rare game that brings a very “unique and unique” character style that many Tam Quoc fans also have to “startled” at the audience.

Confrontation with Khong Minh
The “feminine” feature in Sima Yi’s form is not natural, it inherently comes from a story that everyone knows. During the second encounter with Confucius Zhuge Liang, Sima Yi always kept his beliefs cautious, defensive, and defensive. Realizing that the Thuc troops were tired long distances, transporting food was difficult, Sima Yi ordered the entire army … to stay on the road, not to fight.
After struggling forever and not, Zhuge Liang understood that, in order to win against Wei, he must destroy Sima Yi. However, one outside the city, the other inside the city, how to defeat this “tough” character? Then the master thought, sent a scarf, bib and white clothes from the woman to Wei camp with the following envelope:
“Trong Dat (Tu Ma Y) is a general, dominating the Trung Nguyen army. women? Now send someone to bring a scarf of the woman’s white clothes. If she does not dare to beat her, she must do two prostrations and receive it; If you still know shame, have a son’s character, you must be high on this paper, I will go to war ”.
Sima Yi was full of anger, but forced a smile, exclaimed: “Khong Minh considers me like a woman”. This move of Zhuge Liang is indeed very sublime. Although Sima Yi acknowledged the intention to encourage the general, the Wei generals did not understand. They said that their guru is … true woman, humiliating, but still dare not fight. Moreover, Sima Yi specially treated the Thuc ambassadors, making the generals even more angry.
The bad reputation spread, soon Sima Yi was laughed at by the people
Later, even though the goalkeeper of Sima Yi had indeed achieved as expected, the Thuc army had only a way to retreat. However, the rumors were far away, the story of the “woman” military master, the cowardice had spread very quickly, very far away. Later, because of the “tiny” story above, many game studios still favor Sima Y with a look that can be considered quite … “weak”.
Anyway, Sima Yi’s power in the game is undeniable
Anyway, ignoring the controversial appearance, Sima Yi in the game world still enjoys “extremely” favor on the basis of strength. Also in 3Q Ba Vuong, with the recent update, Sima Yi was the first HUR general released, possessing the ability to attack all enemies very fearsome and gradually becoming the destination of numerous players. According to the assessment, the combat power caused by Sima Yi seems to be “slightly” better than Zhuge Liang, Liu Bei or Lu Bu, creating many new team meta that is very unpredictable.
