Man Chong is a minor protagonist in the 14th-century Chinese classic novel Romance of the Three Kingdoms by the late Luo Guanzhong, and its multiple adaptations. He is an officer and politician of Wei.
Originally a Shanyang scholar, Man Chong became a strategist under the warlord Cao Cao. Man Chong was a former friend of Xu Huang, and when Cao Cao fought against Yang Feng (which served Xu Huang), he was sent to persuade Xu of make defection towards the forces of Cao Cao. Later, Man Chong became governor of Runan, and helped Cao Ren defend Fan Castle of Guan Yu and his Shu forces at the Battle of Fan Castle, acting as advisor to Cao Ren. Man Chong convinced Cao Ren not to withdraw indicating that the flood would be only temporary and would not last long. Man Chong also noted that Guan Yu's avant-garde had already advanced to Jia County although his main strength did not dare to follow him, because he was afraid of being isolated from behind and being attacked from both sides.
Man Chong participated in a failed invasion by 3 directions of Eastern Wu. Man Chong also had the merit of suggesting the construction of a new castle in a strategic location far from the sea, in Hefei, to minimize the advantage of the Wu's navy. However, Sun Quan was once agian to invaded Hefei, but he was so hesitant to land the land he stayed on his ship for 20 days. When he went down to earth, he was locked up by Man Chong, and lost a few hundred men in front of him before returning to the ship and retiring. During the Battle of Hefei, Man Chong was responsible for the defense of the Great Castle of Hefei (however, Man Chong was not physically there), although his proposal to reinforce General Zhang Wing (who was there at the command of troops in Hefei Castle) was rejected by Cao Rui, he managed to burn the rams of Wu's forces that were reunited to take the city. As a result, forces Wu forces withdrew before Cao Rui carried the main army to Hefei.
Although he was a fair man before the authority, he was also a man who could not leave the power. During his last years, he was involved in the power struggle with Wang Ling, and finally he fell into disarray in the court.
