Was there any element of respect for renowned heroes who were known to be good men?
ty ken, im watching the 2009 version of hsds and its been a long time, forgot everything
I agree with Ken's response. In general, I don't think Yin Su Su meant to kill Zhang Cuishan. She was only interested in obtaining the Dragon Sabre.
how strong are the 3 du monks in shaolin? are they comparable to say GJ/YG? or even stronger/weaker?
i tried to search, but got billions of thread and the top 10 thread didnt have my answer thankssss
The three of them could draw with ZWJ. Their internals combined were about equal to ZWJ. Considering JY likes to keep his great-level figures about the same. ZWJ would likely be the same tier as YG/GJ, and they would probably perform just as well.
If it had been Gwok Jing or Yeung Gor, they would have Hong Lung 18 Palmed/Sad Palmed (or Heavy Iron Sworded) the monks and broken their formation. I don't think the Do monks would have had any defense against attacks such as Hong Lung 18 Palms/Sad Palms/Heavy Iron Sword.
I think it would be a little unfair to give YG the HIS in this equation. The HIS allowed him to top QQR and draw with YD even pre-16 years when his internal wasn't on their level. Post-16 year YG with the HIS would probably be able to batter through the defenses relatively easily, especially if you threw in Yang Xiao and Yin Tianzheng.
I think ZWJ actually had a good skillset to take on the Du Monks, honestly. QKDNY allowed him to redirect and avoid getting put into compromising positions against their formation. However, I think GJ might have the best overall skillset for tackling the Du Monks, through a combination of L/R and XL18Z.
YG probably has the best skillset at taking on any one monk individually, and honestly, if the other two were distracted, I could see YG overpowering the single monk with relative ease, but he would probably struggle 1v3 against the formation if he didn't have the HIS.
how strong was song qing shu during the lion slaying festival? was he equal to one Z3F's disciple?
Actually Song Qingshu in the novel is much more competent than portrayed in most adaptions. He is actually supposed to be quite intelligent and knowledgable in more fields than many of his uncles.
At the festival, even though Yu is definitely stronger, he had a difficult time closing the deal because he knew that his claws were super deadly. Depending on how you view preparing specific strategies to beat an opponent as legitimate or not, Song actually would have taken Yu's life even if he were going 100% if he hadn't see him use those claws on the two elders before him.
Yeah, but like ZZR, his internal strength simply wasn't on par with the Wudang heroes. He had to rely on his moves being too unusual and dangerous for them to be comfortable taking on. It's not a sustainable model with them. Once they have showed what they could do, the people with stronger internal would still best them.
how strong was the yellow shirt girl aka yang guo's granddaughter?
In HSDS, the acid test would be fighting somebody such as Cheung 3 Fung, Cheung Mo Gei, or the three Do monks, but Lady Yeung in Yellow didn't fight anybody near that caliber in HSDS.
The claws wasn't just an all flash and surprise you technique in my mind, it is a legitimately powerful technique that increases what opponents have to defend against and thus makes it easier for yourself to attack and defend also.
