Amazing Art Spotlight, like always, but I'm going to nit-pick now. Monkey's and Apes are two different things entirely. Ape's don't have tails. As clever as that little statement tried to be, it was totally wrong. Maybe if you used simian or something to that appeal. Just to keep to the monkey motif. I'm excited about this champ because I love Journey to the West and all of the Lore behind Tripitaka and Monkey. Maybe we can even have future Pigsy and Sandy champs as well. I'm a little sad about his ult though, I think a Lux-esque super long pole shot would've sufficed.

Oh well, I'll play him either way! It'd been cool to use his peaches in his passive in or something though. Wonder how many people know about the peaches... or Sun Wukong for that matter.

 
IKR? many dun know bout him and it woulda been cool if they included the peaches in the wallpaper when he made the tree

This character seems like it's design concept was taken from the Jackie Chan and Jet Li movie "The Forbidden Kingdom." In fact, I am willing to bet that's where the Riot developers got the concept; furthermore, the Riot character dev team seems to be taking into consideration alot of pop culture satires lately for their champion creations...hmmmm, but sick art for sure!


Actually tencent gets this today. China wanted one of their majorly popular show characters in it :P

I was wondering if this champion is gonna have the same floating cloud like in the Chinese stories? Its the one that he uses to travel from Heaven and Earth etc.

Also, are his 3 companions(the monk, pig and someone i cant rmr) gonna be champions? If they are, that'll be awesome.


Its the monk, pig, and this rought dude who turns buddhist after wukong betas him. I think he was an ocean king or somthing

I'm tired of people whining about copy and paste of other champs ablities and no origniality so YES this is a"YOU fking copy and pasted" but it is also an idea at a remake before release so you people at riot can make this fun game a lot more fun.

I am not putting damage numbers or ratio's because I feel that riot should have very good template for balancing damage outputs by now (they obviously don't with the release of yorik but I believe anyways)

Remade Monkey King

Passive: Banana Strech
Everytime the monkey king hits a target his staff gets longer (increasing attack attack range by 25 or some small but noticeable amount) and he gets a Banana charge which can be used for his other abilities. Up to 5-10 length increases and 5-10 banana charges (depending on how riot wants to tweak this)

Q- Om Nom banana's! (Or some better name)
Wutang regains some health and gets some sort of buff depending on banana charges <--- so that the MONKEY KING can jungle because right now it doesn't look like he will be able to and that is just wrong because MONKEYS belong in the jungle. This ability just uses Banana charges and/or mana/energy. I know this sounds like a GP and tryn type skill and that's because it is but bear with me.

W- Staff HOP!
Wukang Leaps 2-4 or more times depending on his staff length increases dealing damage to select points on his leaping way. (This would utilize a new way point based movement/skillshot interface) Also Staff charges would be kept when hitting champions or maybe just used up.

E- Tail wrap
Wukang wraps his tail around an enemy stunning or some other CC while swinging around throwing banana's at nearby enemies and uses all his charges. CC duration, amount of banana's and range of throwing would all depend on the amount of charges stored up.

R- Going Banana's!
Wukang flings a bunch of Bananas onto the battlefield that make champions slid at increasing speeds in the direction that they were originally going. Plus if they hit a wall they are stunned for a short duration .3-.7 seconds depending on how far they traveled before hitting the wall. Allies in the area of effect slide also but their dodge percentage is increased by how far they slide and they are not stunned when hitting terrain.

OR we could just give him a big self buff like yi/tryn/ali that gave him stacks on his staff and banana's

These skills give him a unique playset that im sure would be tons of fun. I've always wanted to play a melee champ that get more range it just seems so annoying (just like a monkey at the zoo.)

Thank you forums for being open to all the troll/stupid people/people who know what they are talking about/me/well everyone!


He eats peaches not bananas lol. and i agree with the passive and the staff jump xD

Wow i just got to say that Sun Wokong was a super hero back when i was a little kid. I grew up watching videos about him beating up bad guys and him having him split into 5-6 copy's of himself. Sorry for rambling off but i'm sure that there will be many people enjoying this character and having lots of fun with it. I recently saw the gameplay video and it ensured me that i will enjoy using this character

I expected him to look a bit older and grayer.
Not how I expected him to look, but still cool.
