UPDATE: This is not how i feel bout Guan Yu and Zhang Fei.. anymore atleast. I made this topic nearly over a year ago where I was rash, and uneducated.. Now I'm still uneducated but rash not so much

Anyways.. novel wise.. Guan Yu was made to look like the better of the two. Though in history, Zhang Fei outshines Guan Yu as a general(opinion). Also Zhang Fei enjoyed Gardening, Poetry, and Calligraphy. Which made him unique...

I agree with mrbeate, I too am uneducated and still rash but ya from what I've learned so far zhang fei is the more impressive of the 2 but the novel puts zhuge liang, liu bei, guan yu, and zhao yun as the 4 main heroes of the novel and makes them outshine everyone else, although zhang fei is portrayed a hero he isn't given the same praise that the novel gives guan yu. the novel even calls him lord guan instead of guan yu.

speaking of gardening , some of the trees he planted might still existed in Cheng du today. according wikipedia..

very true, trees live a long time. I'm not sure how long but I guess it could be a possibility to visit one of the trees he planted. It would be awesome to get to see a tree he planted, as it one of the few ways to feel pretty close to him and the 3K era. :D
