Pang Hui
Simplified Chinese 庞会
Traditional Chinese 龐會

Pang Hui was a military general of Cao Wei during the Three Kingdoms era of Chinese history. He was the son of Pang De, and inherited his father's courage and ferocity in battle. Unfortunately, Pang De was captured and executed by Guan Yu after his defeat at the Battle of Fancheng. Later on, Pang Hui was promoted to General of the Center Guard (中衛將軍) and enfeoffed as a marquis.

According to the Record of Shu (蜀記) by Wang Yin (王隱), after Shu Han was conquered by Cao Wei in 263, Pang massacred the descendants of Guan Yu to avenge his father.

In fiction[edit]

In Luo Guanzhong's historical novel Romance of the Three Kingdoms, Pang De specifically instructed his wife to take good care of Pang Hui before he left for the Battle of Fancheng. He even predicted that Pang Hui would avenge him as the child had a unique appearance (possibly in the sense of physiognomy).
