I forgot: "Journey to the West" is a famous folktale in China, not in Japan chaoswolf1982. But you're right, it is a reference to Son Goku ("Sun Wukong" in chinese).

Just one detail: The legend say that the Monkey King is a male. However, why not? That's beautiful.

Indeed he is. But this isn't the Monkey King himself, if you're thinking that. It's his daughter.

The Monkey King has no daughter in the chinese folktale. But I found a novel called: "The Monkey King's Daughter" : [link]

However, her name is Meilin, not Fu-Ren. But if I'm wrong, can you tell me, please?

Well god damn. Another story I unintentionally copied off. Y'see, my version is an original character of mine part of a huge, 8 part stories called "Pathway of Clouds". I assume Mei-Lin might be the original.

Honestly, I'm trying to think of multiple ways of avoiding saying: "I think I might've unintentionally made fanfiction" ;_;

You didn't hurt me at all! =O It's just that originality is hard to produce these days. A writer does get a little upset but not hurt.

Or is it a myth that you created by yourself? It is the best explanation that I envisaged.

Yup, it's a myth I made myself. Based off Sun-Wu's legend.

It's one of popular features many artist(especially Japanese) include while drawing Son Goku(Sun-wukong) or humanoid monkey or human with monkey characteristic.

Are they sideburns or hair that is wrapping around from under the ears like Elle Ragu from Shadow Skill? :)

Yup, you guessed it. It's Elle Ragu. I based her hair off her. It slicks itself back when she's running.

And a tail. She's a monkey. More specifically, she's a reference to Son Goku, the primate protagonist of "Journey to the West", a classic folktale in Japan.

Actually, the original pronunciation would be Sun Wukong, as Journey to the West was written in the 16th century during the Ming dynasty, written by Wu Cheng'en.  This makes it no less well known, as most of the Chinese literature is well known in Japan; Romance of the Three Kingdoms being one of the most well-known Chinese novels.

I suppose that makes sense. That'd account for the staff as well.

chaoswolf1982 was half-correct; Son Goku is the Japanese pronunciation of Sun Wukong.  Journey to the West was written by Wu Cheng'en in the 16th century during the Ming dynasty.

He was also correct in the overall Dragon Ball story being heavily inspired by Journey to the West; Son Goku is based on Sun Wukong (same kanji/hanzi), several characters in Dragon Ball are also based on other characters from Journey to the West.  To resolve the whole thing about people associating the name Son Goku with DBZ and not Journey to the West, we make the distinction by using the original Chinese pronunciation to refer to the original character.

Exactly - the infinitely-extending staff was Son Goku's cheif weapon/tool in the stories.

Pity that most folks, when they hear "Son Goku", think "main hero of Dragon Ball Z" well before they do "main hero of centuries-old folktale"... even though that series - or rather, its precursor Dragon Ball, was also heavily inspired by the tale in multiple aspects from character names to plot events.

This couldn't be a more professional question. Well done! The staff in actuality, in her story is her father's, regardless. You can consider this one a fake or a replica, and not the real thing. You'll have to read up her story on FA.
