- Wutugu (兀突骨), the king of Wuge (烏戈) and an ally of Meng Huo. He was described to be gigantic in stature and he dined on venomous serpents. His soldiers wore armour made of dried and oiled rattan, which was light enough to float on water, yet sufficiently hard to prevent sharp blades from penetrating, so they were known as the "Rattan Armour Army" (藤甲兵). He scored initial successes against the Shu forces due to his army's impenetrable armour.

- Cui Liang (崔諒), the Administrator of Anding Commandery. He feigned surrender to Zhuge Liang after being surrounded, and attempted to lure the Shu forces into a trap at Nan'an Commandery. However, Zhuge Liang saw through his trick, and Cui Liang ended up being killed by Zhang Bao.
