Five Generals of Wei (五子良將): The Five Generals of Wei refers to the “top five generals of Wei” and includes Xu Huang, Yu Jin, Yue Jin, Zhang He and Zhang Liao. This saying may have originated from Chen Shou’s Sanguozhi, where he grouped them together and said, “Of all the generals of the period, these five can be considered the best of them all.”
