Li Kui (李逵) was a character in the Chinese folklore novel Water Margin.

He went home to fetch his mother to Liangshan and met Li Gui who pretended to be him, robbing passerby. Li Kui defeated Li Gui after a brawl and wanted to kill him for impersonating himself and committing crimes in his name. Li Gui lied that he had a 90 year old mother to feed and had no choice but to rob. Li Kui was moved and let him off. Later, Li Kui found out that Li Gui had lied to him and was plotting to capture him. Li was furious and he killed Li Gui but Li Gui's wife escaped.
Li Kui reached home and carried his blind mother all the way on his back, hoping to share wealth and woe with his mother on Liangshan. His mother complained that she was thirsty and Li Kui immediately went to find water for her. When Li Kui returned, he was horrified to find that his mother had been attacked and killed by tigers. Fuming, he stormed into the tigers' lair and killed all four of them. Squire Cao pretended to complement Li Kui on his brave act, while plotting with Li Gui's wife on the sly to capture Li Kui and hand him over to the government for a reward. Li Kui was drugged and captured. The brothers of the Liangshan band conducted to get Li Kui free.
