Five Tiger Generals
The Five Tiger Generals (五虎將) of the Kingdom of Shu during the period of Three Kingdoms in China were Guan Yu, Zhang Fei, Zhao Yun, Ma Chao, and Huang Zhong, named in honour of their contributions to the establishment of the kingdom. This title was bestowed on them by Liu Bei. The actual historical veracity of the Tiger Generals is unknown; the were known to exist, but whether or not they were actually granted this title is uncertain; more than likely this was a literary device used in the novel San Guo Yan Yi by Luo Guanzhong.
