Xiahou Hui (onyomi: Kakō Kei) is the sixth son of Xiahou Yuan and an officer of Wei. He fought Zhuge Liang at the Wuzhang Plains alongside his other brothers.

Role in GamesEdit

In Dynasty Warriors, Xiahou Hui is one of the constant generals appearing at the Wuzhang Plains since the fourth installment, where he either serves as a subordinate of another officer or is one of the frontline generals. Later installments have him appear in more of Wei's late battles, such as Shiting or Hefei Castle in Dynasty Warriors 6. In Dynasty Warriors 8, he also appears at Jieting and ambushes Ma Su and during his retreat. He further appears in Wu's hypothetical route at Shouchun and Runan. In some of the Xtreme Legends expansions, he often joins a hypothetical Wei assault by Sima Yi or his son on the lands of Nanzhong.

In Warriors Orochi 2, he is tasked with occupying the southern frontline fort at Guan Du in order to make Cao Cao's plan work. In its sequel, Xiahou Hui serves as Xiahou Ba's replacement when the player includes the latter in their attack team. 

In Romance of the Three Kingdoms, Xiahou Hui is given decent intelligence and politics, similar to his brother Xiahou He. He serves Wei in the later scenarios.

Historical InformationEdit

Xiahou Hui was the sixth son of Xiahou Yuan. During his youth, he was known as a skilled debater and to be a good writer. Following the death of his father in 219, Xiahou Hui was given command of a portion of Xiahou Yuan's former troops and he became a general. When Zhuge Liang launched his northern campaigns, Xiahou Hui defended the borders under the command of Cao Zhen and Sima Yi. Later, he was one of the van leaders at the battle of Wuzhang Plains. He followed Sima Yi into subduing Gongsun Yuan in 238 and eventually became Grand Marshal along with Xiahou He.

Romance of the Three KingdomsEdit

Xiahou Hui is mentioned in chapter 102 of the novel by Sima Yi, when the latter requested four leaders to join him in the defense against Zhuge Liang from Cao Rui. Sima Yi proposed that Xiahou Hui and Xiahou He should be made Marching generals, while Xiahou Ba and Xiahou Wei led the van. In chapter 103, he and Xiahou He informed Sima Yi that the Shu troops built camps and engaged in field work, stating that they intended to remain longer and should thus be destroyed. Sima Yi, however, suspected a ruse by Zhuge Liang behind those actions. After the two asked Sima Yi for permission to show their gratitude for the Emperor's trust in battle, the latter gave them 5,000 troops each and allowed them to march. On the way, Xiahou Hui and Xiahou He spotted Zhuge Liang's wooden oxen and managed to capture some of them.
