Zhou Fang (birth and death dates unknown), courtesy name Ziyu, was a military general of the state of Eastern Wu during the Three Kingdoms period. In 228, he was a main figure in a confrontation between Eastern Wu and Wu's rival state, Cao Wei, when he pretended to surrender to Wei to induce the enemy general Cao Xiu into a trap, and Wu forces were able to deal Wei forces a major defeat. This battle was called the Battle of Shiting. His son Zhou Chu later became a famous general during the Jin Dynasty.
