Zhang Liao is legendary. He begins off as one of Lu Bu's best generals before surrendering to Cao Cao. His catchphrase is "This is my range, this is where I excel" He easily takes on many officers. He gives men like Xiahou Dun and Xiahou Yuan a thrashing, and he fights Zhao Yun to a draw. When he is digging for his brothers, he becomes a one man army that destroys the Yuan army. He only has two losses so far. One against both Guan Yu and Zhang Fei, and the second against Sun Ce. After his loss by Sun Ce, Zhang Liao looks a lot like someone familiar. Maybe the God of War if I dare say?
Zhang Liao is a prized general. Cao Cao wanted more than anything to have Zhang Liao on his side. Even the geniuses Jia Xu and Guo Jia wanted to convince Zhang Liao. Zhang Liao is a righteous character who values the loyalty that his men have for each other. This feeling is the basis for why Zhang Liao surrends to Cao Cao.
