The Ri Boku Army is an army led by one of the Three Great Heavens of Zhao Ri Boku.


Ri Boku is a Great General from Zhao, before he made a name for himself he was mostly known for subdueing the Xiongnu threat to the north which constantly raids the northern part of Zhao, which no other general could. While serving at the region of Ganmon, Ri Boku army's cavalry had acquired horsemanship of an equal level to the mountain tribes. This skill would prove to be a huge advantage in future battles.


Battle of Bayou ArcEdit

Ri Boku army was introduced during Zhao's invasion in Qin. While remaining in the shadows at first, when the Zhao army was about to be attacked by both sides and seemed cornered, Ri Boku army appeared and attacked Ou Ki's army from the rear, revealing that the great general Ri Boku was the mastermind behind the invasion all along.

Coalition Invasion ArcEdit

Battle of Kankoku Pass Edit

After setting the initiative for the creation of the coalition army, Ri Boku set his army at the far left part of the battlefield, right against the army of general Duke Hyou. On the night of the 15th day, Ri Boku, seemingly frustrated by Chu's failure, took his army and departed from headquarters.

Battle of SaiEdit

It was later revealed that Ri Boku had been sending portions of his army each day through a secret mountain passage that lead to middle of the southern pass to Kanyou. After joining his army himself, Ri Boku conquered city after city in his path reaching closer and closer to his goal, the Qin capital. However, Duke Hyou's instinct lead him to follow Ri Boku and he managed to meet his army just before they reached Kanyou. The Qin then rallied a last stand in the city of Sai, where even the Ei Sei, the king of Qin joined the fighting. The Ri Boku army had to besiege Sai, in order to destroy Qin completely. But their siege ring was broken by the mountain people, that came to aid Qin. The Ri Boku army had to retreat.
