Zhang Ren (onyomi: Chō Jin) is a subordinate of Liu Zhang. He strongly opposed Liu Bei joining the Shu kingdom and valiantly fought against him. In the novel, he is famously credited for ambushing Pang Tong, mistaking him and Liu Bei, and subsequently killing the strategist.

His height in Kessen II is 170 cm (5'7").

Role in GamesEdit

Throughout his appearances in the Dynasty Warriors, he stays true to his role in Romance of the Three Kingdoms by ambushing Pang Tong during the attack on Liu Zhang. If the strategist is left unattended by the player at this time, Pang Tong will perish in combat. He will always lead an archer regiment to corner his adversary. For his first appearance, Zhang Ren ambushed Pang Tong in the forested area in the south. His other appearances try to recreate the hill area described in the novel. In Dynasty Warriors 4, at Luo Castle, he will again try to trap Pang Tong, but can also be captured. For the Dynasty Warriors 6 version of the ambush, he traps Pang Tong in a narrow valley in the south while the generals accompanying the strategist are busy dealing with other surprise attacks. In Diao Chan's story, Zhang Ren tries to repel Lu Bu's army when they seek refuge in Han Zhong from the pursuing troops of Cao Cao.

In Warriors Orochi, Zhang Ren sometimes serves as Hideyoshi or Huang Zhong's replacement officer when players assume either one during the Samurai storyline. He also becomes Wei Yan's substitute during the sequel.

His Kessen II counterpart is described as a straightforward and loyal vassal to Liu Zhang. When Liu Bei's army surrounds his lord's castle, Zhang Ren leads his foot soldier army to either defend the gates or accompany his master. He has a very strong defense and morale, proving difficult to surpass if he is defending. His spirit can be weakened in Cao Cao's version of the stage if the player chooses to spread negative rumors amongst him and Zhang Fei. His fate after Liu Zhang's defeat in either scenario is unknown.

Historical InformationEdit

Romance of the Three KingdomsEdit

At the Battle of Chengdu, Zhang Ren prepared an ambush for Liu Bei. Liu Bei at the moment got a new horse named Hex Mark. Zhuge Liang said this horse was cursed but Pang Tong thought otherwise. Pang Tong took it upon himself to use this horse in the battle. While going north, he stumbled into Zhang Ren's ambush. Zhang Ren recognized the horse, mistaking its rider for Liu Bei. Archers of Zhang Ren fired, killing Pang Tong.
