After Emperor Xian had escaped to Luoyang, Li Jue and Guo Si decided to attack the capital city. Eventually, Li Jue and Guo Si arrived and met with the forces of Cao Cao, who had come to assist the Emperor. At one point Li Xian and Li Bie, nephews of Li Jue, rode out. At once from Cao Cao's side dashed out Xu Chu and cut down Li Xian. Li Bie was so startled that he fell out of the saddle. He too was slain. The victor Xu Chu rode back to his own side with the two heads.
- Li Bie is based on the historical Li Li 李利
