Zhòng Rén (Chinese: 仲壬, born Zi Yong, Chinese: 子庸) is traditionally held to be a Shang Dynasty King of China but recent archaeological evidence has thrown this into doubt.

In the Records of the Grand Historian he was listed by Sima Qian as the third Shang king, succeeding his father King Tang (Chinese: ) and elder brother Wai Bing (Chinese: 外丙). He was enthroned in the year of Dingchou (Chinese: 丁丑) with Yi Yin (Chinese: 伊尹) as his prime minister and Bo (Chinese: ) as he capital. He ruled for 4 years before his death. He was given the posthumous name Zhong Ren (Chinese: 仲壬) and was succeeded by his nephew Tai Jia (Chinese: 太甲).

Oracle script inscriptions on bones unearthed at Yinxumarker do not list him as one of the Shang kings.
