I think you've been playing Dynasty Warriors a little to much :lol:

Zhao Yun was a mere bodyguard for Liu Bei.

The real match up is Ma Chao vs. Lu Bu, I'd say Ma Chao because Lu Bu is a coward deep down inside.

Zhao Yun was a nobody and Ma Chao was an idiot. Lu Bu, though not so great either would win.

I would say Lu Bu, he was renowned for his fighting skills, thats why its so hard to assassinate Dong Zhuo, and of coz, Lu Bu is also infamous for his betrayal to his 2 lord

I'd say Ma Chao..he was a match for Lu Bu.
Lu Bu just is a big frightened little boy (inside).. :shock:
Zhao Yun is nothing but a bodyguard..and I don't like him.
Don't think you're weird, just act like it!

He may have been a frightened little boy on the inside, but on the outside Lu Bu was a hulking engine of destruction. He single-handedly turned the tide in battles much larger than Ma Chao's little scuffle with Cao Cao. He wasn't ever fightened when he had free rein to fight, so I think that analysis of Lu Bu is a bit unfair.

Later on, when all the petty lords are fighting amongst themselves it seems like Ma Chao is a great warrior and general. Compare that situation to where it was everyone with an army vs. Dong Zhuo, and Lu Bu's accomplishments on the battlefield are much greater.

Zhao Yun was a good soldier, like Xiahou Dun. He was good at his job, and no doubt full of virtue, but he wasn't even close to the level of a Ma Chao or Lu Bu.

In my opinion I think Zhou Yun is the BEst out of those 3.
lu bu is a traitor
ma chao is just well known for his battle at tong agaisnt cao cao.
but zhou yun saved liu bei's son in middle of thousands of troops and zhou yun was with shu till he was old
when lu bu died caseu he was betryed by his officers and captured.
ma chao died of sickness.

I don't think the Ma Chao being a match for Lu Bu comment should hold any relivance. Lu Xun told Guan Yu that after he captured Yu Jin, not even the strategies of Han Xin could match what he had done. :roll:

Zhao yun because of the Qing Gang sword chops metal like butter of mud. lol I laugh at the lunar spear. :lol: Guan Yu can take on Lu Bu, Zhang Fei can too remember the three brothers never fought Lu Bu.
