Xue Ying (died 282), courtesy name Daoyan (道言), was a minister of the state of Eastern Wu during the late Three Kingdoms period. He was the son of Xue Zong. The inept ruler of Wu, Sun Hao, was prepared to commit suicide because the Jin Dynasty's army had invaded Eastern Wu's capital. Xue Ying advised Sun Hao to remember how Shu Han's ruler Liu Shan was treated after his surrender, and Sun decided to submit to the Jin Dynasty.
