Sima Yan (onyomi: Shiba En) is the son of Sima Zhao and Wang Yuanji, and the grandson of Sima Yi and Zhang Chunhua. Over the years, the Sima clan had gained an enormous amount of power within the Wei court. In the year 265, he forced Cao Huan to abdicate as emperor and took his place, beginning the Jin Dynasty.

Role in GamesEdit

In Dynasty Warriors 4, Sima Yan is present, but only as a generic bodyguard for the player.

During the ending cinematic for Jin's Story Mode in Dynasty Warriors 7, Sima Yan leads troops to overthrow the Wei emperor to become emperor himself after his father's death, establishing the Jin Dynasty in place of his father. The Wu kingdom cripples over time and surrenders to him, signaling the end of the Three Kingdoms era.

He makes an appearance with his father in Warriors Orochi 3 using the strategist general design, only using a sword instead of an iron fan. He also appears in the Siege of Tong Gate to bring in the fleet of boats if the player is using Sima Shi. He also appears in the Battle of Hasedō if the player is using Sima Zhao.
