Zhang Cheng (178–244),[1] courtesy name Zhongsi, was an official of the state of Eastern Wu during the Three Kingdoms period. He was the eldest son of Zhang Zhao, a senior Wu minister.

Zhang Cheng was ordered by Sun Quan to invade Guanling to Huaiyin, together with Sun Shao and Zhu Huan during the Fifth Northern Expedition of Zhuge Liang, along with several other attacks from the allied Wu and Shu forces. All of these attacks failed, although Zhang Cheng's campaign made some progress.
