Real-world information[edit]

A terracotta soldier

The Terracotta Army is a collection of terracotta sculptures depicting the armies of the first Emperor of China, Qin Shi Huang, who was obsessed with immortality. After his death in 210 BC, Emperor Qin was buried at the center of a grand necropolis complex that had started construction when he first ascended the throne, and the army of statues, including thousands of soldiers and numerous horses and chariots, was placed in military formation close to his tomb to protect the emperor in the afterlife. Chinese farmers digging a well near Xi'an discovered Emperor Qin's burial place, as well as the Terracotta Army, on March 29, 1974. Since then, the complex has been under continuous excavation. While the statues were originally colored to resemble a real army, the dry climate resulted in most of the paintwork deteriorating during the excavation process, resulting in the teal-gray appearance seen in the Animal Crossing series.
