The Sun Wukong wiki last edited by MasterKungFu on 04/18/15 04:22AM View full history


Monkey King, traditionally his origins are known, as having him, born from a mythical stone egg, upon Flower Fruit Mountain. After demonstrations of bravery and discovery, he was granted and known with the role of Monkey King. In his efforts to discover the secret of immortality he had at one point, become the student of the immortal Bodhi, who granted his Sun Wukong his very name and title. With further travels, Sun Wukong was able to take human mannerisms and traits. He would learn to master over 72 different combat transformations. A famous tale about Sun Wukong is his bet against Buddha. The bet was whether Sun could escape from Buddha's very palm; of course a very cocky and arrogant Sun, knowing that he could travel over 54,000 kilometers with a leap, felt such a challenge easy. So with a leap, he found himself making his way towards the edge of the world, where he came across five pillars. To signify his achievement, he marked one of the pillars with both ink and his own urine, so that all may know what he had accomplished. Upon returning to Buddha, it was then realized that the pillars Sun had come across had in fact been Buddha's fingers. Buddha finally taming the mischievous trouble maker. Experiencing many more great adventures and stories, Sun Wukong eventually finds himself in various cities associated with Heaven and Hell.


Sun Wukong is the protagonist of the great Chinese story Journey to the West. Wu Cheng'en is credited as the likely author of this classic journey tale. As such Sun Wukong has spread over many centuries.
