Wen Yang (238 – 291) was a military general of Cao Wei during the Three Kingdoms period of Chinese history. Wen Yang was the son of Wen Qin. It is said that Wen Yang's real name is Wen Shu, but carried "Yang" as his childhood name up into adulthood. Wen Yang wielded his famous steel whip and was compared to Zhao Yun with his uncomparable skill in battle. Wen Yang alone faced off against many troops that were under Sima Shi during Wen Yang's assistance of the rebel leader Guanqiu Jian. After Wen Qin ended up being killed, Wen Yang then went on to join Cao Wei.
