On the next day, however, his army is pincered between A Kou and Gyoku Hou Unit which resulted in the death of many of his soldiers.

Zhao Crisis ArcEdit

He stalled the Kantan army in order to buy enough time for Ri Boku and prince Ka to escape to Houshou.[1]

Abilities Edit

As the deputy to Ri Boku, Ba Nan Ji is a ferocious fighter with a sharp eye for tactics.[2] Chou Ga Ryuu considered him to be one of the key factors in deciding victory or defeat in Battle at Shukai Plains.[3]

In the past, he was an officer who served in the Ganmon stronghold on the Zhao-Xiongnu border. On many occasions, Zhao has dispatched celebrated commanders to Ganmon, but all of them died before reaching the end of their first month. Ba Nan Ji, however, was able to serve in this land of death for a significant amount of time.[4]

Ba Nan ji's size is comparable to Mou Bu and his strength of arms is assumed to be on a similar level to Kai Shi Bou or Ren Pa.[5][6] In the past, he pulverized numerous Xiongnu leaders with his bare fists, despite their almost superhuman skills.[7] He was able to break through enemy lines and easily overpower Gyoku Hou Unit commander, Kyuu Kou.[8] He later fought on par with Ou Hon without taking a single clean hit from him and even dismounted and disarmed young commander.[9][10]

Ba Nan Ji's strength seems to vary depending on his psychological condition.[11] While already being strong in his base, once he gets fired up, he reaches a completely different level as demonstrated when he surprised even Ou Sen by easily breaking through his guard platoons.[12] Even Mou Ten stated that he would not be able to win one duel out of a hundred against the Demon of Ganmon.[13]

Ba Nan Ji was also praised by Chou Ga Ryuu and Ka Ryo Ten for his tactical insight.[14][15] On the first day of battle, he split his forces into two groups, an attack force, and distraction to prevent A Kou's second wave to aid the first wave and deal a devastating blow to his army. After Chou Ga Ryuu's defeat, he also made a plan to make a tactical retreat and strike the rear of Qin's right-wing that would go for Zhao's center.
