Sun Tzu was a human philosopher on Earth from China, who lived in the 2nd century BCE. Sun Tzu is best known for his influential text The Art of War, which was required reading at Starfleet Academy. (TNG episode: "The Last Outpost")

Sun Tzu once said that "the greatest victories are those won without fighting". (ENT episode: "Divergence")

One of Sun Tzu's noted sayings – "If you know your enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles" – had also been attributed to Kahless the Unforgettable. Klingon Captain Kang was impressed to learn any human could have possessed such insight into the art of war. (TOS - Mere Anarchy eBook: The Blood-Dimmed Tide)

Dr. Leonard McCoy was of the opinion that Sun Tzu was overrated, observing that "he repeats himself about fifty times" in The Art of War. (TOS - Rihannsu novel: The Empty Chair)
