Hua Tuo
Hua Tuo 华佗
God Doctor 神医

First Aid 急救
Outside of his turn, Hua Tuo can use any red card as a peach.

Green Vesicle 青囊
Once per turn, Hua Tuo can discard any hand card to heal any character one.
Clarification:
  • For both of his powers, Hua Tuo can discard any of his cards, whether they are hand cards or equipped.
  • Hua Tuo can choose himself for "Green Vesicle."
  • If Hua Tuo is struck by Lightning, he cannot use "First Aid," since he is struck during the judgement phase of his own turn.
Strengths Weaknesses 
  • Hua Tuo can be incredibly hard to kill since he can use half of the deck as Peach outside of his turn.
  • Hua Tuo can keep his team alive with his powers, making it difficult for anyone to die until he dies.
  • Hua Tuo is a very high-profile character. Because he is so hard to kill, enemy forces will target him more than his companions. 
  • Time-delay tool cards are a problem for Hua Tuo. Preventing him from playing via Capture will stop him from healing his team during his turn and all of his excess heart cards will be discarded at the end of his turn. Starvation prevents Hua Tuo from getting more cards to keep himself and his team alive for a longer period of time.
  • Hua Tuo's responsibility of keeping his team alive means that he does not have many offensive options.

Notable Combinations:
  • Liu Bei/Guo Jia/Xun Yu - These characters can give Hua Tuo cards to keep himself alive.
  • Fa Zheng - Fa Zheng can give Hua Tuo a heart card and take a black card, increasing the number of red cards that he has. Also, Hua Tuo can heal Fa Zheng, causing him to draw a card to replace the card that he used to heal him. 
  • Zhang Liao/Gan Ning - These characters can strip Hua Tuo of the cards that he needs to save himself and his team. 
  • Jia Xu - Jia Xu's "Complete Kill" prevents Hua Tuo from saving his friends during Jia Xu's turn.
 King Hua Tuo is a mediocre king. He can keep himself and his team alive, but the position of king will cause him to be the center of attention of the rebels. This may exhaust him and his resources quickly.
 Loyalist
Hua Tuo is a great loyalist. The rebels cannot defeat the king until Hua Tuo is defeated. Hua Tuo provides an excellent distraction, so long as he is alive.
 RebelHua Tuo is a good rebel. Like the loyalist role, he can keep everyone on his team alive until he dies. 
 SpyHua Tuo is not a good spy. While he can keep the two sides balanced, he does not have the firepower to take down the king at the end unless the king is incredibly weak.

Final Remarks:
As the token healer of the game, Hua Tuo can be very useful. However, when he is the target of each member of the opposing team, he easily become confined to just worrying about keeping himself alive. In any case, he is always a good distraction. Enemy forces will hone in on him, and the other members of the team will not be targeted as much. His teammates must take advantage of this distraction.
