Hu Lie (onyomi: Ko Retsu) is a subordinate of Zhong Hui during the campaign against Shu. After Shu was conquered, Hu Lie initially complied with Zhong Hui's intention to rebel.

Hu Yuan's army would later be credited for killing Zhong Hui and crushing Jiang Wei's rebellion.

Historical InformationEdit

Hu Lie was among the forces gathered to stop Zhuge Dan at Shouchun in 257. During the battle, he led an attack on Zhu Yi, and succeeded in destroying the Wu supplies. He later became one of Zhong Hui's subordinates for the campaign against Shu. During the campaign, Hu Lie was able to kill the enemy general, Fu Qian. After the campaign's end, Hu Lie was forced to join Zhong Hui's decision to rebel.

Jiang Wei, who also wanted to weaken Zhong Hui, stated that Hu and the other generals couldn't be trusted, so the two locked Hu with the other generals into a palace with the intention of killing them later. At this time, Hu Lie was able to have Qiu Jian escape, and inform Hu's son, Hu Yuan, of their predicament. Hu Yuan would lead his army to crush the rebellion.

After Zhong Hui's death, Hu Lie was ordered by Sima Zhao to assist Luo Xian, who was besieged by Wu's Lu Kang, by attacking Wu's position at Xiling. Hu Lie carried out his duty, and Lu Kang finally lifted his siege over Baidicheng.
