Yes but fighting shows bravery, whos more brave someone who goes into the action risking their lives or someone who doesn't?

There are other ways to show bravery than just fighting. It would have been a stupid move on zhang fei's part to charge the enemy at chang ban, but he did a very brave act there. It was cao cao's forces that chose to not go engage him but that doesn't mean he wasn't willing to fight them if they attacked his force.

Yes, but it was just a strategy, Zhao Yun KNEW and DID fight . Zhang Fei was just using the scare tactic. We don't know if he would've fought or rethink and flee.

Yes but it was still incredibly brave for zhnag fei to do that. He could have been killed if cao cao attacked him. I think zhang fei is more brave then zhao yun.

Zhao Yun wasn't nicknamed by his men as 'General of Tiger Valor' for nothing. Noone was braver than Zhao Yun. We can say perhaps that Zhang Fei was as brave although even that's debatable because Zhao Yun proved his bravery more often in his career. For certain though there is no way you can say Zhang Fei was braver. There isn't a realistic argument for that. It was Zhao Yun of whom Liu Bei said 'he has courage all over his body'.

how about guan Yu? he escaped Cao Cao and tried to search for his two brothers, who were more than 1000 miles away.

Out of those, it's your Chuck No- I mean Zhao Yun :P

I like Zhang Liao's stand at He Fei though. I think he deserves a place there..
