Riot, you know you can get sued for this for copyrights and hated by the chinese people and sun wukong lovers around the world, because first of all, you are copying a character right off one of the 4 classic novels of china, second of all, you are insulting and denegrating chinese culture by putting one of its godlike figure into a game, how would you guys feel if we chinese people decided to put Jesus into our video games


omg jesus totally needs to be a champion. build in guardian angel, anyone? or maybe every time he is killed, he rises 3 days later and steals all enemy foreskins? OR MAYBE A MULTIPLYING LOAF AND FISH ATTACK?

unfortunately for your stupid post, i think youll find that americans are crass enough as a country to have a sense of humor about such things. theres this show called south park you might want to look into, you cultural nematode.

All the people comparing him to Goku from DBZ are doing it wrong. Monkey King's story was around BEFORE DBZ, so if anything, Goku is designed after him, not vice versa.


Yo Mr. Smartass - dont bark too loud. No one said Goku was there before Monkey King, they are just similar, thats all people pointed out. He reminds them of Goku, no matter who was there first. (btw. Dragonball was there before DBZ, so get your studys right next time. And, yes, I know Monkey King is ancient.)

btw u got it wrong yes we know the monkey king STORY was around long before DBZ was even thought of, let alone DRAGONBALL, but remember DBZ came out before league of legends and so it came before this incarnation of wukong the monkey king...

on another note i dont want to wait a week for him i want to play him now!!!!!!

I am really hoping that Wukong is energy based for a few reasons. One is that it is so fitting for him! He looks like he would fit with Lee Sin, Akali, Shen, and Kennen. Also If this mechanic is going to have runes that you purchase, their should at least be a good variety of champions who can utilize them. I think this would be good for Riot Games as well. I am not sure of the ratings for each champ; however, most of the energy type champs seem popular. And making the new champion Energy based would prompt summoners to purchase the hardly used energy runes. This might have been attempted during Lee Sin. If it worked then or hardly worked. It may again!

Can't wait, so excited. Good work Riot!

Lol, I actually know of a Chinese man who is looking forward to this champion! Imitation is the most sincere form of flattery. You should be happy these American people wish to Idolize one of your cultures Iconic figures. I myself think it is amazing when someone completely awesome is put into a video game! Also, as for the copyrights, they are save. You noted yourself; The name is SUN Wukong! I am also not really sure on overseas policies.

It's funny everyone is thinking of goku my first thought when i saw him was that movie with jacki chan and jet li in it the golden kingdom i think

though i will admit agree 100% a gokuesk like skin would be very cool

while i think a kingkong skin would be good as well the 2cnd skin in the bundle 100% has to be donkey kong comon iconic monkey of the ages lol
