- "Train more in kung fu before you come back."
- ―Bei to Ryo
Master Bei (Hànzì: 貝仙仔, Pinyin: Bèi Xiānzǐ, On'yomi: Bai Senshi) is a character in Shenmue III. He is apparently a solitary and serious-looking cormorant fisherman in Niaowu. In truth he's a master of Nanquan styles of martial arts.
Ryo hears from Qiu Hsu that a strong kung fu master lives in Niaowu, by the fishing wharf. Master Bei refuses to help Ryo at first, stating that he's not ready, but finally agrees to teach him a single Bajiquan technique: the Reverse Body Check.
- In the first trailers, the sparring scene involving Master Bei and Ryo showed another (possibly placeholder) character instead of Master Bei.
- During the 2015 Kickstarter video, Yu Suzuki mentioned that the player would have met in Niawu a "Nanquan master", which is likely become then Master Bei.
