Here is a picture of how he single handedly held off the attacks of Zhang Xiu's army, unarmed.

Now, you know why they call him "Coming Evil".

What do you guys think?

This also shows when the final blow against him was dealt, that lethal stab from behind.

correction, he was called E lai, who was called "coming evil" because cao cao hear how he killed a bandit and scared a hundred people by waving the head around in a market...


"He is! He killed a man once to avenge a friend and carried his head through the whole market place. Hundreds saw him, but dared not come near. The weapon he uses now is a couple of spears, each weighs a hundred and twenty pounds, and he vaults into the saddle with these under his arm."
Cao Cao bade the man give proof of his skill. So Dian Wei galloped to and fro carrying the spears. Then he saw away among the tents a huge banner swaying dangerously with the force of the wind and on the point of falling. A crowd of soldiers were vainly struggling to keep it steady. Down he leaped, shouted to the men to clear out and held the staff quite steady with one hand, keeping it perfectly upright in spite of the strong wind.
73 "This is old E Lai again!" said Cao Cao.

That's just the TV series. Dian Wei's prowess was derived from his historical deeds and not the TV series. :jaws:

I thought E Lai was the just name of a strong guy somewhere back in the Zhou dynasty...

Dien Wei defined bravery by staying back and holding back onslaught of enemies...which makes many people wonder if it were not for Dien Wei would have Cao Cao escaped...?

Didn't I already make a thread about this?

Anyway, I think that Cao Cao still would have escaped even if Dian Wei was not with him. I can't remember who (I think it was a Cao), but someone gave Cao Cao their horse and gave their life for him also.
