-General Yue Fei
Over a 20-year period, this super soldier rose to the military rank of Overall Commander of Imperial Forces, while emerging victorious in 126 battles. He earned the respect of those he commanded as he was stern and fair yet caring. He also invented a half-dozen styles of martial arts, wrote sweet poetry about the annihilation of his foes, and honored his parents.
Today, he is revered as a national hero in China, a symbol of patriotic loyalty, honor, intelligence, and courage.

ps. These rugged eSports champions and sensitive otakus will never be seriously revered by Asians or anyone on earth.
