Wong Kei Ying (or Huang Qi-Ying) (Chinese: 黃麒英) (18?? - 1886) is best known as the father of the Chinese folk hero and martial arts master Wong Fei Hung. Kei-Ying was himself a master martial artist and, though not as famous as the son he trained, was renowned enough to be included in the Ten Tigers of Canton, a group of ten of the top Chinese martial arts masters in Guangdong (Canton) towards the end of the Qing Dynasty (16441912).

In the many movies made about Wong Fei-Hung, especially the Once Upon a Time in China series, Wong Kei-Ying is a supporting character with little screentime. However, the 1993 film Iron Monkey is a fictional depiction of the filial relationship between Wong Kei-Ying and a 10-year-old Fei-Hung and hints at how the younger Wong is shaped by the example of his father.
