Fictional interpretation of Guan Yu's historically unnamed daughter. Dates are fictional.

Guan Yinping (onyomi: Kan Ginpei) is one of the fictional names for Guan Yu's daughter. In a dubiously accurate line in Record of the Three Kingdoms, she was considered by her father's advisers for a political marriage with one of Sun Quan's sons. Guan Yu flew into a blind rage by the suggestion. In Chinese folklore, she is argued to be either Guan Suo's younger or elder sister who fought for Shu after her father's death.

Her Dynasty Warriors incarnation is the number one character fans would want as their girlfriend and their third choice for sibling according to Famitsu's character survey. She was the sixth most popular character with fans in the Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends character poll. She also has a character image song titled WILL TO FIGHT.

Role in GamesEdit

Dynasty WarriorsEdit

Guan Yinping is Guan Yu's youngest child who initially learned martial arts for self-defense, only to develop an interest in it during the course of her training. She is first seen beside her family at Xianyang and Fan Castle. Their victories are short-lived as the combined Wei and Wu forces attack Jing Province. Guan Ping sacrifices himself for his family's escape, yet Lu Meng intercepts them. Guan Yu knocks out Guan Suo and instructs his other children to keep living. She and her siblings tearfully report to Liu Bei the news of their defeat and mourn the deaths in their family. Guan Yinping follows her brothers into battle for the rest of Shu's historical route. After Zhuge Liang's death in Jin's story, she assists Shu's retreat and later becomes an active participant in Jiang Wei's northern campaigns. She is fought with other defenders at Chengdu.

In Shu's hypothetical route, she follows Zhuge Liang in his southern campaign at Nanzhong. In the Wei's hypothetical route, she helps defend Baidi Castle from Wei by having her soldiers throw boulders at the attacking troops until she is finally slain.

Red Hare has apparently been stolen in her Xtreme Legends what-if scenario. Xingcai and Bao Sanniang help her search for the horse-napper. Another scenario has her participate in the Battle of Yiling alongside Liu Bei and Fa Zheng.

Romance of the Three KingdomsEdit

Guan Yinping appears in Romance of the Three Kingdoms XI as a fictional general. Mirroring her father, she excels at leadership and warfare but lacks proficiency in politics and intellect. She is often portrayed as the Guan family counterpart to Zhangshi in the series.

Character InformationEdit


Omega Force designed her with the intents to focus on "her long, beautiful hair" as an homage to her father's beard and to simplify her character silhouette. She was added into the series primarily due to her popularity in folktales and myths. Designers wanted to her represent the Guan family with a new feminine charm.


Guan Yinping's innocent appearance belies her incredible strength, something that she does not fully realize. She strives to be as strong as her father, believing that she needs to be as muscular as he is.

Dynasty Warriors 8Edit

Guan Yinping uses the dual-headed mace as her default weapon in this title.

Chinese FictionEdit

Guan Yinping's popularly known image originated from a legend regarding Guan Yu, Guan San Xiaojie. Depending on the source, she may also be called Guan E (關娥), Guan Feng (關鳳), or Guan Sanxiaojie (關三小姐).

Her fictional image most likely draws inspiration from an angered comment spoken by Guan Yu in chapter 73 of Romance of the Three Kingdoms, stating directly to Sun Quan that he would never allow his daughter to marry Sun Quan's son, Sun Deng. Sun Quan was furious by Guan Yu's reaction and killed any possible ties that he could have had for Guan Yu, thus leading to the general's isolation in Jing Province.

Her mother is unknown, but in many tales, she was taught the military arts and culture by Zhao Yun. It's said that her name, "Yinping", was given to her by Zhang Fei, naming her after a silver treasure he plucked from Lu Bu during the Battle of Hu Lao Gate. By the time she was eighteen years old, she had matured into a perilous beauty who was masterful in the martial arts. Possessing her father's bravery and mournful of his death, she swore to avenge him and her brother's deaths by fighting Wu. She left her secluded home and swore loyalty to Liu Bei, who graciously accepted her and comforted her pain of losing a loved one. One legend states that she would often climb the hills of Jinlian Mountain to apply make-up while facing the direction of her homeland, a sign of how she dearly missed it. This caused the locals to honorably name the mountain peak, "Shuzhuang Tai".

Years later, she fought in the Nanman campaigns until she was said to have married Li Hui's son, Li Yi. After the revolts in the south ended, Guan Yinping often vanishes from folklore. In some tales, she dies due to a miscarriage or succumbs to illness.
