Yan Yan was a general of Shu Han during the late Han Dynasty and Three Kingdoms era of Chinese history. Yan began his career as a general serving under the warlord Liu Zhang of Yi Province.

In fiction

In Luo Guanzhong's historical novel Romance of the Three Kingdoms, Yan Yan was defeated captured by Zhang Fei in 212 in one of the battles during Liu Bei's takeover of Yi Province. Yan firmly refused to surrender and made strong accusations at Liu Bei, which angered Zhang Fei. Zhang wanted to have him executed but changed his mind later as he was impressed with Yan's strong sense of loyalty. Zhang released Yan and succeeded in persuading Yan to join Liu Bei's forces.

Yan appeared in a later chapter during the Battle of Mount Dingjun, where he volunteered to lead an army to attack the enemy together with Huang Zhong.
