Li Damu 李大目 was a leader among the Black Mountain Bandits. Li Damu is a nickname, meaning “Big-Eyes Li”.


Li Damu was a leader among the Black Mountain bandits from Taihang range in Chaoge county, Henei.

Like many other Black Mountain bandits, not much is known about Li Damu. In 185 A.D. he was a leader in the Taihang range. In 193 A.D., somewhere during the second half of that year, Yuan Shao launched a small campaign against the Black Mountain bandits.

He first killed Poison Yu and then went north, where he killed Zuo with the Eighty-foot Moustache. He then went on to attack Big-Eyes Li, Yellow Dragon and many others, killing all of them in the process.[1]
