Novel or history?

In terms of novel I'd say that no one would have a chance...

In history I still can't see anyone beating him one on one but if someones going to come near it'll be Zhang Fei, Guan Yu, Sun Ce or Taishi Ci.

In terms of history it's impossible to tell, or even if Lu Bu is the strongest.

In terms of novel, it's never certain after Lu Bu who is the strongest next few in order. All we have are the first tier fighters:

Guan Yu, Zhang Fei, Zhao Yun, Ma Chao, Xu Chu, Dian Wei, Zhang He, Zhang Liao, Xiahou Dun and a few others.


Historically in China southerners due to stereotypes aren't considered as great fighers due to the fact they're of smaller stature than the meat and cold bred northerners.

Taishi Ci wasn't a southener he was born near King Rong I believe. That Sun Ce fought him to a stand still puts him up there as a great warrior.

Yeah I wasn't including Taishi Ci. I was more mentioning people like Zhou Tai and Gan Ning etc. And only in terms of horseback dueling. Hey, get Gan Ning fighting on a wet deck against Zhang Fei and I wouldn't be so sure of the outcome.

Though..... on a sidenote...Dong Xi seemed very badass.
