Yang Song is a fictional character in Luo Guanzhong's historical novel Romance of the Three Kingdoms. He was an advisor to the warlord Zhang Lu of Hanzhong. He was described as a greedy man, who was easily tempted by riches and luxuries.
Yang was once bribed by Liu Bei's forces to speak ill of Ma Chao in front of Zhang Lu, causing Zhang to distrust Ma and forcing Ma to eventually defect to Liu Bei's side. In another incident, Yang accepted a bribe from Cao Cao's forces to alienate Pang De from Zhang Lu's forces, and to urge Zhang to surrender when Cao attacked Hanzhong. When Zhang eventually submitted to Cao Cao, Yang hoped to be rewarded for helping Cao conquer Hanzhong, but Cao called him a disloyal and untrustworthy man and had him executed.
