Remember in the other games he was pronounced Kao Kao but then Koei realised this was wrong so now its Tsao Tsao, bit I wanna know how you say it, I still go with Kao Kao:)

I call him Tsao Tsao, but it's more for the sake of Cao Pi than for correctness :p

I call him Cow Cow, just for Cao Pis sake than for correctness.

We called him Cow Cow since DW 1 came out. Then a few years back we discovered it was Tsao Tsao. Which was a bit of a relief as Cow Pi or Cow Pie to a me was much too funny and I really couldn't take him seriously.

I've also called him Co Co as when I spell his name, I sometimes write Coa and then realize my mistake.

He will always be Cow Cow for me, thats how he first was mentioned until DW6/WO Came out.
I guess Cow Cow kinda got stuck as it was how I always reffered to him in the previous games.

Up untill and including DW5, althroughout the game all you would hear is the Cows, but since then(WO/DW6) they have changed the pronounciation to Tsao Tsao...which I think sounds more correct :)

Tsao Tsao since WO. Before,it was Kao Kao (Cow Cow).

Before I studied more Chinese Language, I called him "Kao Kao", but after learning more about Chinese Pronunciation, now I call him "Ts'ao Ts'ao" 曹操 ^^

It was Cow Cow for DW3 but I've been calling him Tsao Tsao since I learnt that when I read the books before DW4 came out.

Cow Cow. Since I've played since DW2, I'm just so use to thinking of Cow Cow. Though of course Tsao Tsao is the correct way, I'm sure we will all grow into it eventually.

it is Tsao Tsao, but Cow Cow sounds better. And it sounds better for Cao Pi. But what about other Cao's? (Cao Ren, Cao Hong, Cao Chun?)

You think? Cao Pi has been in since DW5 and there has been a few games since then.

It is said Pee in game is it not? I think that is why it is said Cow Pee.

LittleDragonZ
22-02-09, 10:49 AM
Yeah, it's Sal Pee the way it's pronounced now. So Sal Sal and Sal Pee. Also, Sal Ren. It's been like it since the Warriors Orochi series first came to us.

I use to say Cao Cao's name as cow cow since that was how it was pronounced in the games, but since they have changed it I now pronounce it the correct way as Tsao Tsao.

I call Cao Cao (Tsao Tsao) but Cao Ren and Cao Pi (Kao)...

Dooooooooooooooooooooooon't ask me why... cos I dunno!

lol...I sort of do that also, I think it might be because when you have the same name twice, it sounds more obvious when you say it stupidly :p

Wow when i read the complains about the pronouncion of cao cao & cao pi
i was sure agrred with them cause it was kinda embarrasing for a historical name to be called like this.
Plus i learned calling cao cao cow cow & cao pi the same
gladly i changed when dw6 was released

i'm glad they changed it to 'tsao tsao' their one step closer to completely realisticising (i know not a real word :P) the whole game

Tsao Tsao since WO. Sometimes I accidentally say it wrong.

Tsao Tsao, I just like the way it forces you to say it a certain way. Try it, you'll see what I mean. I like how the voice actors say it as well.

Cao Cao

Yeah,sometimes I call him accidentally Cow Cow,too,espacially Cao Pi and Cao Ren.^^ But I always correct it.^^

Cow Cow, of course.
Although his Japanese name is even better (So So if I'm not mistaken).
Such a BADASS name.

Cow Pee, I jut call him "Milk" :D

I call him Cow Cow since the dynasty game came out
I think it looks good to call him like that ^^

And for Cao Pi or (Cow Pee)
-Bovine Urine xDD

(bovine)-relating or belonging to the genus of ruminant animals that includes cattle, oxen, and buffalo.

I try to call him by 'Tsao Tsao', but do forget sometimes and have to correct myself. I prefer to be correct.

I swear they changed it from 'Cow-Cow' to 'Tsao' 'Tsao.'

But anyway, i sound it out as 'Cow-Cow.'

cheat07
28-05-09, 08:11 PM
they did change it, the correct pronounciation is tsao tsao and they only realised (or actually bothered to change it) in the latest games. Till then they had been calling him cow cow.
