    Default Who's Got The Best Nickname?

    Characters in wuxia almost always have fantastic and creative nicknames, much like characters in British gangster movies. The longest could be the one Xiao Yu'er invented for himself in The Legendary Siblings.

    Who do you all think has the greatest nickname of all time?

    I thought Murong Fu's nickname was rather cool.

    Kunlun 3 Saints He Zudao
    忽见柳荫下两个小孩子在哀哀痛哭,瞧模样正是武敦儒、武修文兄弟。郭芙大声叫道:「喂,你们在干甚麽?」武 修文回头见是郭芙,哭道:「我们在哭,你不见麽?」

    Yeah that name is pretty awesome. Has a nice ring to it.

    Guo Xiang's nickname 'Little Eastern Heretic' was kinda cute. I thought Wei Xiaobao's 'Hua Cha Hua Cha Xiao Bao' was hilarious as well.

    Two Xiaoyao Fairies - referring to Yang Xiao and Fan Yao, was also cool.

    More that I like:

    "Skyscraping Resident" Xie Yanke
    "Holy Dragon Sect Leader" Hong Antong
    "Eight Armed Divine Sword" Fang Dongfai
    "Xuan Ming 2 Elders"
    "King of Green Bat" Wei Yixiao --> I only like the English translation
    "Great Wheel Monk" Jiumozhi
    "Demonic Swordsman" Dugu Qiubai --> I only like the English trans
    "One Armed Divine Nun" Jiu Nan

    "Silver Halbred Marquis"/"Yin Ji Wen Hou" Lu Fengxian
    "Solar Apex Iron Sword" Guo Songyang
    (these 2 are from Gu Long's universe)




    These are the ones I DO NOT like so much:

    "Zhong Shen Tong" Wang Chongyang --> I like the English translation "Central Divinity" but not the Chinese.
    "Old Goofball" Zhou Botong
    nicknames of the Four Evils
    "iron head" You Tanzhi

    Xiaoxiang Yeyu, the Night Rain of Xiao Xiang, Mr. Mo Da.

    That name has always had such a dark, elegant feel to it, for me.

    And, of course, 'Jian Mo, Dugu Qiubai'.

    I like 'Tie Zhang Shui Shang Piao' Iron Palm Drifting on the Water.

    Most of them lose their poetic meaning in English.

    The simple 'Xiao Li Fei Dao' is basic and neat too. Another one of my favourites.

    a translation attempt: "fighting everywhere unequalled under the heavens, the broad-faced buddha Miao Renfeng!"

    pretty badass, but not as poetic in english

    Hey, the 4 Evils nicknames are extremely cool in their overblowness. While I don't know the Chinese versions of the nicknames, the translations like "Overflowing Evil" or "Evil Extreme" are just pretty hilarious in a strange manner.

    Yeah, the nicknames are just really evil words in Chinese. But it was just like, oh #4 is already very evil, but #3's gotta have a even more evil description. I don't remember what #3 and #4 are, but #2 is "Does Everything Evil" and #1 is "Full of Evil."
