Not to be confused with Huchi'er.

Huche'er was a general serving under the warlord Zhang Xiu during the late Han Dynasty period of Chinese history. He was not of Chinese origin.

Huche'er fought for Dong Zhuo until Dong's death, whereupon he then became a general under Zhang Xiu. He was said to have been the greatest warrior of Zhang Xiu's army, and even Cao Cao gave gold to him for his prowess when Zhang Xiu surrendered. In the historical novel Romance of the Three Kingdoms, on the night of the Battle of Wancheng, Huche'er stole Dian Wei's weapon, ensuring victory over Cao Cao's forces. He was not mentioned again in historical texts or the novel after the battle.
