Role in GamesEdit

Wang Zhi is one of the generals who tries to stop Guan Yu's Escape in the fourth and fifth Dynasty Warriors title. He launches a surprise attack on the escaping party in Dynasty Warriors 4, surprising them at the final gate. Guan Yu threatens to cut him down, and when his men are whittled down, he begins to withdraw. Either killing him or letting him flee opens the final gate. Conversely, he guards the third gate in the fifth game. In Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends, he opposes Lu Bu's forces at Dingtao.

Romance of the Three KingdomsEdit

Wang Zhi offered Guan Yu a warm, safe place to rest for the night, which was to become a trap if everything went right. Guan Yu accepted, and both Liu Bei's wives and him entered the small house. A thousand men lay in wait with torches outside of the building, waiting for Guan Yu to fall asleep. However, Wang Zhi's aide Hu Ban wanted to observe Guan Yu while he was reading a book. When Guan Yu noticed him, he introduced himself. Upon hearing his family name, he asked if he was related to Hu Hua. When he was on the affirmative, Guan Yu passed him a letter from his father. It revealed what a great, honorable, and righteous man Guan Yu was. Hu Ban warned Guan Yu of the trap, and the wives and him fled. Wang Zhi tried to pursue, but was cut down.
