In Romance of the Three Kingdoms

Ding Feng is briefly mentioned by name in the historical novel Romance of the Three Kingdoms by Luo Guanzhong, which romanticises the historical events before and during the Three Kingdoms period. He appeared in chapter 117 during the Conquest of Shu by Wei. When the Shu general Zhuge Zhan was under attack by Wei forces at Mianzhu Pass (綿竹關), he requested reinforcements from Eastern Wu. The Wu emperor Sun Xiu ordered Ding Feng (elder), with Ding Feng (younger) and Sun Yi (孫異) as his deputies, to lead 50,000 troops to attack the Wei-controlled Shouchun (壽春; present-day Shou County, Anhui) in a bid to divert Wei attention away from Shu.[2]
