Dai Ling was a general of Wei who fought against Zhuge Liang.


Dai Ling was one of several commanders who resisted Zhuge Liang's northern expeditions, and was posted in Hanzhong with Fei Yao. He served as Assistant-General to Zhang He, and was rescued by him during an attack in AD 229. Both came back to Sima Yi limping and crestfallen after the engagement. During the Battle of Hanzhong in AD 230, he commanded part of Zhang He's 30,000 troops against the commanders Wang Ping, Guan Xing, Ma Zheng, Zhang Ni, Hu Ban, and Wu Yi. He was defeated, but fought again at the Battle of Fenmian Gate alongside generals Yue Chen and Zhang Hu, where he was again defeated. The next year, he fought at the Battle of Mt. Qi and was lured into an ambush by Shu troops and again routed.
