Lady Yin (Chinese: 殷氏; Pinyin: Yīn Shì) is a minor character featured within the famed classic Chinese novel Fengshen Yanyi. She is the wife of Li Jing and they have three sons, Jinzha, Muzha, and Nezha.

Throughout the Nezha birth arc in Fengshen Yanyi, Lady Yin would always be known to reflect many acts of kindness to her third son—no matter what he truly did. Thus, Lady Yin would be seen protecting Nezha at many times throughout the novel, even when he performed horrendous actions such as the killing of Ao Guang's third son, Ao Bing. After Nezha had given his own body as a sacrifice to Ao Guang in order to protect his family, Lady Yin would end up erecting a temple atop the Green Screen Hill as a stationing area for Nezha's spirit (this was because Nezha continuously pleaded to her in her sleep). Lady Yin would be scolded by Li Jing profusely following this point.
