Since we're on the topic of computer games, I remember that the Chinese civilization crossbow unit in Age of Empires II is called Chu Ko Nu. I just checked and it turns out the nu is crossbow too.

 

Quote
  • Chu Ko Nu (諸葛弩) literally means "The crossbow of Zhuge." Zhuge Liang was a famous strategist-tactician who lived and died during China's Three Kingdoms era. However, the Chinese more commonly refer to it as the "Lian Nu" (連弩), literally translating to "Repeating Crossbow".
