The following people, despite not appearing in historical sources, are not included in the list.
- Zhang Biao 張表, brother of Yellow Turban leader Zhang Jue. Probably the Sanguo zhi pinghua equivalent of Zhang Liang 張梁.
- Chu Chou 楚稠, miswritten for the historical Fan Chou 樊稠.
- Mei Zhu 糜竺, miswritten for the historical Mi Zhu 麋竺.
- Qin Fu 秦𢧐, probably a miswriting for the historical Qin Mi 秦宓.
- Xiong Kai 雄凱, a miswriting for the historical Yong Kai 雍闓.
- Ma Wei 馬𫘓, a miswriting for the historical Ma Su 馬謖.
- Empress Yang 羊 of Jin, different background than her historical counterpart, but no doubt the same person.
- Huangfu Song's name is written as 皇甫松. Historically his name is written as 皇甫嵩. Both 松 and 嵩 are pronounced as Song.
- Zhang Jue's name is written as 張斍. Historically his name is written as 張角. The character 斍 can only be pronounced as Jue, while 角 can be pronounced as Jue and Jiao.
- Son of Old Master Sun. Suffered from an illness which symptoms share similarities with those of leprosy. One day he saw a huge python and followed it into its cave, where he found a book which could cure 404 diseases. It also contained a passage on his own disease. Which, much to the delight of his father, he succesfully used to cure himself, using a cup and incantations. He became a popular figure for those who needed treatment, and ordained roughly 500 disciples. One of these men was Zhang Jue. Later Zhang Jue had to leave schoolteacher to treat his mom, who had gotten old. Upon leaving schoolteacher hands Zhang Jue the book and tells him that when he uses it to cure people, he should never ask for money in return. Schoolteacher Sun thus serves a similar purpose as Zhuangzhi / Saint Hermit.
- Has a surname in SGZ Pinghua: Ren 任. When Wang Yun meets Diaochan for the first time she is sad and tells him she lost her lover (Lü Bu) and fears she will never see him again. Wang Yun, knowing Lü's whereabouts, reunites her with Lü. Aside from this part the rest of her story is rather similar to that of her SGYY counterpart.
