The Monkey King

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

My most favorite character ever from the most fabulous Chinese tale: Sun Go Kong (or Son GoKu in Japanese) from "Journey to The West"Born from "The Rock of 5 colors", this golden monkey has been granted a great power since the beginning and protected by Kwan Im. Go Kong proclaimed himself as "The Monkey King of Hwang Ho Mountain"As an ape, Go Kong has very bad attitude and manner. He once attacked The Dragon Castle to steal Sea Pillar as his weapon, which is later known as "Golden Rod" (or GoKu Rod), burned Books of Life and Death in hell to obtain immortality, and even destroyed the Heaven and defeat all Gods in there.But, he then defeated by Buddha Gautama in his own game and sealed under "The Mountain of Buddha's 5 Fingers" for 500 yearsLately, Go Kong met Tong Sam Cong and become his first apprentice in his Journey to the West.Because of his power (and his tremendous track record....), the name of Sun Go Kong is respected by gods and feared by demons......
