Guo Jia is the fourth genius. As it stands, he is either the best, or he is behind Yuan Fang. Personally, I think that Yuan Fang is better, but since the Battle of Guan Du will end up with victory for Cao Cao, Guo Jia will win in the end. Guo Jia is an amazing talent. He decimates Lu Bu with his strategies, and he takes out many of Yuan Shao's generals at Guan Du. At Xuzhou, he only lost because he was up against both Zhuge Liang and Sima Yi at the same time.
Of course, Guo Jia has the cough of death. He will die early, and he will be gone from the series. But at this point, the manhua has not reached there yet. Guo Jia uses the Dark Arts of War to achieve quick victory. At Xuzhou, Guo Jia exaggerated the masssacre at 300,000 when it was only something like 10,000. And yet Cao Cao made a lot of cities surrender just like that.
This guy is loads smarter than the other characters, but he is not entirely invincible. Overall, he is a good character.
