This Spell is a scene from the famous battle of Chibi, where Zhuge Liang says “If we run out of arrows, we’ll just borrow theirs”, and sent out boats with a bunch of straw people in them to bait Cao Cao into launching a bunch of arrows at them, and then stealing them for use.

Additional Commentary from our Eva – (Thanks to modern science and people who likes ruining fun, there’s no way this happened the way they described since the weight of the arrows would’ve capsized all the boats. People did math to find out)
