Romance of the Three KingdomsEdit

In chapter 27 of the novel, he is the first general Guan Yu encountered on his journey. Kong Xiu was placed in charge of Dongling Gate and refused to let Guan Yu pass in spite of the former's reassurance of Cao Cao's consent. Angered, Guan Yu rose his Green Dragon Blade to slay him, but Kong Xiu fled behind the gate and started to beat the drums. His soldiers armed themselves and Kong Xiu rode out again to duel Guan Yu, but Guan Yu cut him down with one blow. Assuring the soldiers that he killed Kong Xiu only to defend himself, they let him pass.
