Ji Ling was an officer who served under Yuan Shu. Historically, very little is known about him. Perhaps all he historically did was lead an attack on Liu Bei. This attack, however, ended up being for naught because Lü Bu arranged for peace between Liu Bei and Yuan Shu before any fighting could commence. Ji Ling is seldom, if ever, mentioned doing anything else in historical sources.
Fact vs. FictionEdit
- ...Ji Ling did not use a trident as a weapon.
- ..Ji Ling never duelled Zhang Fei and Guan Yu. He is not mentioned in historical records as fighting someone.

- Much like Hua Xiong, Ji Ling was made to look stronger to give Liu Bei's sworn brothers (this time Zhang Fei) more credits.
