...and there's just this one guy who is an 8/8. What are we supposed to think?

How can it be the worst EDH general if it's in the best color for EDH?

I think the large power and toughness is meant to represent the fleet of ships he commands.

Of all the possible flavor text for Zhou Yu, they picked this one. Despite all his accomplishments (and being an 8/8 for some insane reason), Zhou Yu is only known for being trolled by Kongming.

Ironically his arms don't look half as strong as those from Waterfront Bouncer, yet he's eight times more powerful.
Even stronger than Commander Greven il-Vec (the only comparably strong human i can think of),
let alone all those demons, dragons, beasts and wurms.

Yeah he's an 8/8 cause of his ships
that would explain why he can't attack unless defending player controls an ISLAND

Two years later, Savia is still correct. Also, he seems playable with Spreading Seas.

ZY: "I, the mighty Zhou Yu, challenge you to a battle, Kongming!" *punches wall into a thousand pieces*

KM: "Uh, but... well you see, Mr. Yu... I don't have a private island!"

ZY: "What is this nonsense?!" *karate chops a leviathan in half*

KM: "Yup, too bad, I think it's in, like, the naval warfare rules or bushido or something. You can't attack me unless I have an Island. Sorry bro!"

ZY's first mate: "Dang, I think he's right, captain... we'll have to wait til he's on a ship or something..."

ZY: "SILENCE, FOOL!!!" *drop-kicks him into another dimension*

lol this artwork is quite hilarious to people that don't know their Three Kingdoms. It makes it seem like this guy is taller than the ships beside him and as tall as the flag pole behind him.

but yeah in the story Zhou Yu had the most disciplined and largest naval fleet. Though his skills in leading soldiers on land is not as good as Cao Cao.

Even with the attacking restriction, it seems like an 8/8 for 7 in Blue should be rated higher.
