how come he has a yellow beard?? :? wierd...


There have been theories that Sun Quan with his purple beard (should be red/brown) was actually Caucasian, same with Cao Zhang. And while they seem that they would be the most likely reasons, there is no valid proof that they are. There have been other theories (at least in terms of Cao Zhang's yellow beard), that he may have had a disorder which caused the pigmentation on his beard to be lighter. But again, these are theories as nothing has been shown to actually prove them.


This makes me remember when Guan Yu had been killed and he possessed Lu Meng in the novel... Guan Yu said,

"You purple Bearded Rat... Green eyed boy... Don't you know Who I Am? I am lord of Hanshou... Guan Yu..." :twisted:

Wasent it Red bearded rat?

And I have noticed a mistake in the Dian Wei biography as well, when against Lu Bu it say he held 10 halbereds but it is actually he picked up his halberd, there is one one.

No he actually picked up 10 halberds and threw them at the horses charging. It's not like dynasty warriors where one weapon can kill 10 men with one swing.

Where do you get that source of information from? :wink: There is nothing said about throwing them or the number he killed all it says is he picked up his halberd and knock down every one in his way.
