The Traveler[edit | edit source]

"Wu Shang is a wandering monk who has renounced his violent, mysterious past and walks the earth seeking enlightenment. He seeks to avoid attention, but each week, Wu Shang must use martial arts and ancient wisdom to solve problems in a new location."
– Pitch for 'Karate Chop!' a TV series clumsily based on the life of legendary warrior monk Wu Shang
"This is not the Afterlife. I know because I breathe and I still seek Enlightenment. This is but another station on the Great Wheel."
– Wu Shang, responding to Bödvar’s welcome to Valhalla

As the story goes...[edit | edit source]

The brilliant and ruthless General Wu Shang led the Emperor’s armies to victory after victory, but his heart was empty. One day he rose from his tent, stripped off his finery, and walked away from war and power. Penniless and in rags, Wu Shang came to a monastery. The monks took him in and he took up the Way of peace, discipline, and martial arts.

As his mind grew clear, Wu Shang realized he didn’t need to kill. When the angry Emperor sent his agents to attack the temple. Wu Shang defeated a company of Imperial soldiers without hurting a hair on their heads.

To protect the monastery, Wu Shang took up a life of wandering, honing the soft powers of distraction and influence. He once concealed a hundred villagers in a single willow tree. He sneaked into the palace stable and turned the emperor’s horse against him. He hid a bridge from an advancing army.

Having looked for Enlightenment in every corner of the world, Wu Shang let himself be captured. The Emperor’s men shackled him deep inside a volcano. There in the dark, Wu Shang breathed in the silent energy of the mountain. His inner eye opened, and he found peace. Projecting himself outward and away, he wandered the Astral plane until a Valkyrie led him to Valhalla.

Wu Shang follows the Way in Valhalla, and is delighted to find he can fight without killing. Kor is teaching him to move platforms.

Signature Moves[edit | edit source]

It is worth noting that all of Wu Shang's signatures share the same yellow energy theme. This technique is called "Fists of Fire", noted from Lin Fei's lore.

Spear[edit | edit source]

Neutral Signature[edit | edit source]

Wu Shang does a forward flip while spinning his spear. Similar to his other Neutral Signature, all enemies who are caught in the attack will be launched after he stops spinning with a final spear strike.

Side Signature[edit | edit source]

Wu Shang kicks at the opponent. If it lands, he will attack again using his spear.

Down Signature[edit | edit source]

Wu Shang climbs his spear like a pole, concentrating energy and launching it below him in the form of four yellow fireballs.

Gauntlets[edit | edit source]

Neutral Signature[edit | edit source]

Wu Shang leaps forward, spinning around with a yellow aura around him. Enemies who touch him will be launched when he stops spinning.

Side Signature[edit | edit source]

Wu Shang releases two blasts from his gauntlets while moving forward. If either of the blasts connect, Wu Shang teleports and punches them again in the air.

Down Signature[edit | edit source]

Wu Shang absorbs energy around him, stores it, and then releases it through his hands. This move covers both his sides. The initial startup of the move has one hitbox that draws enemies into the move.
