I like wukong, he's a fierce chinese monkey king, but he sounds like a white guy motivational speaker...

Can he either sound like a angry monkey or atleast a chinese dude? Please? Its hard to play this character and hear this corny whitebread motivation dialogue. I'd rather here fierce monkey jibberish, a chinese accent, or hell i dont understand chinese but him talking in it would be cool.

Thank you for your time, riot.

But that'd be completely changing Wukong's character. ):

Wukong's based on the Chinese epic Journey to the West (same thing the original DragonBall is based on). In the story, Sun Wukong, who's born from inside of a rock and well, goes on a long journey of self-discovery, meeting friends and foes alike.

In the story, Sun Wukong, while possessing a magic staff, the ability to turn to stone, create clones, of himself, and carries a magic staff, is also kind of a, well

he's an ass

He is this all-powerful being who spends most of the time bragging about it. :/

so, basically imagine young Goku's personality from the original DragonBall crossed with a monkey, and that's basically LoL's Wukong; which is why he has those ridiculous Saturday morning cartoon phrases including his obnoxious taunt. :P

Changing that would make Wukong come off as some kind of powerful sage; and while that would make Wukong extremely badass the character wouldn't be Sun Wukong; he'd just be a simian version of Master Yi.

and believe me; you don't want him to be an angry monkey. He'd get annoying fast as one of his attacks would have an incredibly irritating shriek (and therefore making him an even better top lane pick :P)
