He Yi (onyomi: Ka Gi) is a member of the Yellow Turbans from Yu Province who helped instigate revolts in the counties of Runan and Yingchuan.

Role in GamesEdit

Dynasty WarriorsEdit

He Yi is present in many battles involving the Yellow Turbans throughout the Dynasty Warriors series. In Dynasty Warriors 4, he is sent to ambush Huangfu Song whose troops are caught off-guard by Zhang Liang's summoned rainstorm during the Yellow Turban Menace scenario.

In Dynasty Warriors 5: Xtreme Legends, during Ou Xing's Rebellion, if the player does not break into the castle in time, He Yi will arrive as back up for the bandit.

As a deployable officer in Dynasty Warriors Vol. 2, his stats put more priority on attack and growth.

Dynasty Warriors 7 has him arrive as reinforcements sent to eliminate He Jin. He and his cohorts also appear at Yan Province in an attempt to assassinate the territory's viceroy. Unfortunately, their plans are thwarted by the efforts of Cao Cao and Dian Wei.

Warriors OrochiEdit

In the first and second Warriors Orochi titles, He Yi is generally seen in the Samurai storyline. During the early part of the sequel, he is one of the few Yellow Turban officers struggling to protect Zhang Jiao against Dong Zhuo and is eventually rescued by Sakon. He aids the newly-reformed coalition by slowing down Himiko's retreat from Ji Province.

Romance of the Three KingdomsEdit

His Romance of the Three Kingdoms counterpart has decent stats for leadership and war, but the rest of his traits are poor by comparison.

Romance of the Three KingdomsEdit

In Chapter 12 of the novel, He Yi and the remnants of the Yellow Turbans are confronted by Cao Cao for their plundered goods. Both parties confront each other in Yang Mountain only for Cao Cao's troops to win in the end. He Yi resorts to flee with several hundred cavalrymen towards the Gebei Hills only to be caught by Xu Chu and executed alongside Huang Shao.
