Romance of the Three KingdomsEdit

Chen Ying appeared in chapter 52 in Romance of the Three Kingdoms. When Zhao Yun marched on Guiyang with 3,000 troops, Zhao Fan called Bao Long and Chen Ying to counsel. Chen Ying volunteered to fight the general, declaring that his lord could surrender if he was defeated. After his defeat, Zhao Fan surrendered. Zhao Fan and Zhao Yun swore brotherhood to one another since they shared the same family name. When Zhao Fan tried to wed his sister-in-law to the general, Zhao Yun besmirched the stain it would caused his honor and left in indignation.

To try to gain an advantage in the coming battle, Bao Long and Chen Ying suggested using deception. Both generals would feign defection and attack Zhao Yun when his guard was down. With 500 men, they marched to the enemy's camp. Zhao Yun heard their story and feigned joy at the news. When the generals gulped down their obligatory cup of wine, the two deserters were bound and their men confessed the truth. Zhao Yun promised a reward for them if they switched allegiances. The soldiers threw themselves to the ground and promised obedience. Chen Ying and Bao Long were then beheaded and their men screened Zhao Yun's horsemen when they approached Guiyang.
