Xiahou Dun....

This military general, who offered his services to warlord Cao Cao in the late Eastern Han Dynasty, became a legend when, during a battle in the late 190s, he was hit by a stray arrow and lost his left eye. In front of his amazed soldiers and his enemies alike, he pulled out the arrow and ate his own eyeball.
No one had ever seen anything like this ever before, and, fair enough, Dun was thereafter considered to be the ultimate tough guy in China. Following this incident, enemy armies were afflicted with fear of ‘Blind Xiahou, The One-Eyed Warrior.’
