    Default Which wuxia characters resemble these non-wuxia characters?

    Who in wuxia resembles 007 James Bond the most?

    And Neo from The Matrix?

    And the Godfather?

    And anyone else you can think of...

    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?」

    I think The Uncle from COMET, BUTTERFLY, SWORD could be a close match for the Godfather.

    As for Bond, how about Linghu Chong?

    Wasn't there something mentioned on these forums a couple years back which was pretty strong evidence that the first chapter of Comet, Butterfly, Sword was copied almost verbatim from the original Godfather novel?

    And definitely Lu Xiaofeng (or Chu Liuxiang) for Bond.

    Shi Po Tian = Neo
    Temujin = Godfather

    Angel (Maximum Ride) and Crazy Bird Girl from The Sword and the Exquisitness.

    She's not really evil and doesn't really mean do unethical things. But she's a mutant mind reading 6 year old whose closest thing to a parental figure's only 14. When she wants something she'll manipulate anyone to get to it. Plus she has no qualms with killing anyone who's against her.

    Someone such as Seung Gwoon Gum Hung from SENTIMENTAL SWORDSMAN, RUTHLESS SWORD would certainly fit in the Godfather category. He was basically running the Ming Dynasty equivalent of a modern crime syndicate. All he lacked was guns.

    007 James Bond ==> Xiang Siao Long from A Step Into the Past - he even uses gadgets

    Neo from Matrix ==> Cheung Mo Gei from HSDS; reluctant hero/leader, savior complex

    Tyrion Lannister from Game of Thrones ==> WXB; quick witted, sharp tongue, political genius, fiercely loyal but vicious to enemies, duped by the women he loved

    Gregory House from House ==> Dr. Cow from Butterfly Valley in HSDS; temperamental doctor who is intrigued/attracted by difficult cases
