Pang Tong, The Great Illusionist
Sent from Luo Feng Po and to the heveans, Pang Tong didn't see the fruition of the Shu Dynasty. In certain parts of history, some say Pang is superior to the great Zhuge Liang but information may not be 100% accurate of Pang Tong's work. At the Red Cliffs or Chi Bi battle, Pang Tong gain his fame by chaining the ships of Cao Cao's forces together to cause less sea-sickness. Cao Cao complied fully to this ploy and though it did stop the sea-sickness, this was just a ploy being used for the fire attack that Huang Gai would lead later on.
The Demise of the Illusionist
Though he did died in the valley at Luo Feng Po by Zhang Ren's archer, Pang Tong still could match his mind with the Military Strategist Sima Yi of Wei and the Shu strategist Zhuge Liang.

Error In Data?
"Indeed, Sima Wei first recommends Pang Tong and Zhuge Liang to the hero Liu Bei . . . "
And yet Sima Wei is documented (in his article) as having been born 271 AD, 58 years after the death of Pang Tong.

Yea, what the heck? It's Sima Hui not Sima Wei...
I've said it countless times already but a lot of the Romance of the Three Kingdoms articles suck a lot. Too bad there never is an active editor. --126.96.36.199 19:52, 25 March 2006 (UTC)
The Rival Strategist
If Zhuge Liang came close to realizing his dream and capabilities at the Wu Zhang Plains then, Pang Tong's superior skills could have helped Liu Bei restored the Han Dynasty without any fault. (But that is just a thought and opinion) Despite his death, I still would have prefer to see him in the ranks of the Wei army with Sima Yi. It would be quite a challenging event to see four minds go head to head (Sima Yi with Pang Tong Vs. Zhuge Liang and Lu Xun). What do the rest of you think?--Zhang Liao 03:59, 27 May 2006 (UTC)
Lu Xun's criticism of the Death Of Pang Tong
According to Lu Xun's criticism of the _Romance of the Three Kingdoms_ in his _Brief History of Chinese Fiction_ the account of Pang Tong's death as described in Luo Guanzhong's novel is fictional. I have noticed that this account is the one given by wikipedia. Would it be possible for someone to check Chen Shou's _Comprehensive Mirror_ or the _Records..._ in order to give a more accurate account of this?
