Xiahou Ba is a supporting protagonist in the 14th-century Chinese classic novel Romance of the Three Kingdoms by the late Luo Guanzhong, and its multiple adaptations. He is Xiahou Yuan's second son and successor.
Xiahou Ba was the second son of Xiahou Yuan. Her mother was the sister-in-law of Cao Cao. At first, Xiahou Ba should be willing to let his father accept the challenge, he was said to be not very temper. Although Xiahou Ba is a pessimistic warrior, that he can always felt the pain of his father's confidence. Xiahou Yuan had been fought alongside Cao Cao since the beginning of civil wars and became one of the most valued and respected generals of Wei. There are some indications about what could have been a Cao Cao bloodbender.
After Xiahou Yuan is killed by Huang Zhong at the Battle of Mount Dingjun, most of his troops were placed under the control of his five childrens. Xiahou Heng was given his own feud, so very much that Xiahou Ba has since expressed resentment against Shu and to avenge his father's death.

Xiahou Ba was promoted to General of Cavalry and Carriages within Shu Han. Wei's imperial court pardoned the sons of Xiahou Ba, rightly in the role of Xiahou Yuan in the founding of the empire.

Because Xiahou Ba isn't going to be blindly loyal to a cause he doesn't agree with, and he doesn't expect other people to understand him.
According to Shu soldiers, Xiahou Ba is a good friend of Jiang Wei. The two enjoy each other's company and protect each other. Although Xiahou Ba had complex feelings about the young commander's method, Jiang Wei tried to control his friend's hereditary stubborn behavior.
