    Default Sects spun off from larger sects; sects incorporated into larger sects

    In the modern business world, smaller companies are often gobbled up/incorporated by larger corporations. Similarly, entrepreneurs might spin off new independent companies after leaving a large corporation. A similar phenomenon occurred among the wulin sects of wuxia fiction.

    Let's compile a list of such sects.

    Western Shaolin: Spin-off of the Shaolin Temple. No martial arts, however, just religion.

    Diamond Men: A martial arts spin-off school of Shaolin Temple.

    Mo Dong Sect: Technically speaking, a Shaolin spin-off school because its founder (Cheung 3 Fung) had once been a Shaolin member. It took on such a different character from its "parent," however, that it's hard to think of it as a spin-off.

    Celestial Eagle Sect: A spin-off of the Ming Cult. Later reincorporated into the Ming Cult.

    Mo Leung Sword Sect: I just learned from CC that this sect *might* have been incorporated into the Siu Yiu Sect.

    Sing Suk Sect: A spin-off of the Siu Yiu Sect.

    Any other such sects you can think of?

    TSTL respected her Xiao Yao Sect enough that even her Ling Jiu Gong maids were technically part of Ling Jiu Gong and NOT Xiao Yao Sect. Even less so for that bunch of 72 cave riff-raffs.

    Real Xiao Yao sect membership is _very_ exclusive!

    IIRC there was one in Bi Xue Jian which was a spinoff from Wudang. Can't remember the name.

    Yeah, I don't think that should count as a spin-off. Otherwise, we should also consider the Four Evil organization to be a spin-off of the Duan family, because its leader was a part of Duan family once upon a time.

    So who _is_ in Xiao Yao Pai, other than the 3 Elders and Sect Leader Xu Zhu? Yu Po Po? Duan Yu?

    other than the 3 elders and Xuzhu, only Su Xinghe and Ding Chunqiu would be considered "in", I think. Assuming that Ding wasn't expelled.

    The five sects in XAJH were very briefly incorporated into one.

    TSTL had her own sect.
