I believe he was the most celebrated after matching blades (or whatever) with the likes of Lü Bu, Zhang Fei and Ma Chao. Dian Wei died too soon, and Xu Huang got punked by Wen Chou.

Dian Wei is more like a bodyguard-ish sort of, no??

Yeah, Xu Chu was probably the strongest aside from Dian Wei. That could be the reason why Cao Cao had him as personal guard. The story of how Xu Chu's glare causing Ma Chao to back off is really classic I think! :lol:

This is infact untrue. Xu Chu never fought in most of the duels forementioned in history. One duel that did happen in history was Sun Ce vs. Taishi Ci.

Dian Wei for sure. His feats of strength, in the novel, are amazing.
