|“||Hmph Ri Boku…you could have mentioned earlier you had such a fierce tiger lying dormant so close to Yan’s borders!||”|
—Ordo on Shi Ba Shou
|Shi Ba Shou|
|Chinese||Si Ma Shang|
Shi Ba Shou is the lord of Seika City, which lies in the eastern part of Zhao.
So far he has only been mentioned and never made an official appearance.
Before the events of the storyline, Shi Ba Shou's talents in warfare caught the eyes of Ri Boku. In recognition of his abilities, Ri Boku sent his recommendation of Shi Ba Shou for a seat in the Three Great Heavens. The king of Zhao followed his proposal and summoned Shi Ba Shou for the third seat. However, Shi Ba Shou declined, using an illness as an excuse, eventually spreading out as a rumor that continues to the present day.
When the Qin began marching towards Zhao, Ri Boku pulled massive troops toward the western front. This gave Great General Ordo of Yan the chance to invade the eastern borderlands of Zhao and seize multiple cities and castles along the way. When he turned his eyes toward Seika, Shi Ba Shou sets out with 5000 men in order to challenge him on the fields. Ri Boku states, that in this case, they do not need to worry about the eastern front.
Ri Boku recommended him for the third seat in the Three Great Heavens of Zhao. Therefore, it is assumed that he has great talent in warfare. This was proven during the war with Yan, he was able to hold the Ordo Army of 20,000 soldiers at bay with only 5,000 men.

- He does not wish to engage in battle, except for his city, Seika
- Shi Ba Shou is most likely Zhao General, Sima Shang.
- Various Shaolin fighting styles refer to a person going by this name.
