Go Hou Mei
The Ryuudou, also known as the Ryudoryoku, is a defensive military tactic that requires a highly trained army and a skilled general to perform it.

DescriptionEdit

Looking from above, the Ryuudou formation looks like the surface of a flowing river with leaves that ride on it (the leaves being the attacking armies). The scattered clumps of soldiers work like rocks that meticulously divert the flow according to the general's wishes, thus managing to spit the attackers into smaller groups and drive them away from the HQ.

StoryEdit

Coalition Invasion ArcEdit

Right before the Battle of Kankoku Pass when Duke Hyou was fighting against the Wei, Go Hou Mei attempted to use this technique. But, Duke Hyou halted his advance so the whole tactic was stopped right then and there.

On the 20th day of the Battle of Kankoku Pass, Riboku used the Ryuudou against Duke Hyou, splitting his forces. The Duke was able to conquer this tactic using only his instincts, however. He penetrated the Ryuudou with a few dozen men, and would have taken Riboku's head if the Zhao general had not positioned Hou Ken as his personal bodyguard.

Strengths & WeaknessesEdit

Usually the commander needs a high vantage point to make this technique possible. But Riboku is able to see the entire field while at ground level. The more the enemy tries to close in on the defenders HQ, the stronger the flow becomes. Here and there the defenders scatter defensive placements that go against the flow and split it up, splitting the enemy forces into two.
