Yuan Shang (onyomi: En Shō) is Yuan Shao's third son. Due to his good looks, he was favored by Yuan Shao. After his father's death, he fought with his eldest brother, Yuan Tan, for the succession. Later, he was defeated by Cao Cao and turned to his other brother Yuan Xi, governor of You Province, for help. However, the two were defeated there as well and fled to Gongsun Kang of Liaodong. Gongsun Kang, however, killed the two and sent their heads to Cao Cao in order to keep him from invading Liaodong.

Role in GamesEdit

Dynasty Warriors 4 gave him a special role at Ji Province. While the brothers begin to feud who will be family heir, Shen Pei and Feng Ji suggest that he should be chosen. After Yuan Xi is taken out, Cao Cao can decide which brother will side with him. If Yuan Shang is picked, the younger thinks Yuan Tan will never be his brother again and attacks. When his father arrives, Yuan Shang realizes his mistakes and fights Cao Cao alongside Yuan Shao.
